How are you doing?
Well its getting really hot on my side of the world!What about yours!
As summer approaches we redefine how we dress,how we tie our hair,change our wardrobe,our shoes etc etc.With all of this we also give some changes to our makeup routine.
I am a person who has very oily skin & thanks to sweating summers I cant imagine myself applying some foundation or base on my face & then after sometime wiping it off with a tissue!
Yes I dont want to look like a half painted clown :D Thats why I have chosen Garnier BB Cream as my daily base foundation and everything!I have been sponsored by PBBC to review this BB Cream.
BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm or beblesh balm (apparently because of a trademark in Korea on the word "blemish"), and in Western markets, beauty balm. It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although larger beauty brands are increasingly introducing BB creams to Western markets.
BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage ( Source:Wikipedia)

~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT GARNIER BB CREAM~
This is not my first BB Cream but second.Before this I have tried Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream & had liked it a lot.But I am loving Garnier even better!Lets read further to know Why!
I love the packaging of the product.Its lovely Nude colored tube with the green leaf under the Garnier logo giving it a fresh feel.Garnier usually makes good quality skin care products so nothing less was expected of the Garnier BB Cream.
The tube has a flip top lid.It closes very securely without any fear of being opened accidently.It has a small round opening that lets out very little product on squeezing.It ensures mess free handling.
Its consistency is thicker than Maybelline's BB cream but still it feels very light on the skin.It doesnt feel like you are wearing anything at all on your skin.It blends very easily as well.It leaves behind skin that is dewy fresh & glowing.For a person like me who likes minimum foundation or base specially in summers this product is heavenly for me.For light coverage I wear only the BB cream.For heavier coverage in like to finish it with a layer of powder.Powder also helps me control sweating.
And the one thing that surprised me was that with Maybelline BB Cream I continued sweating on a hot day while with Garnier BB Cream I didnt sweat at all.And this is what that makes Garnier BB Cream my better favourite one among these two.

There are 2 shades available in this BB Cream.One is Light & the other is Medium.The shade I got was light that is perfect for me but if you are wheathish or a shade darker you can try the medium one.
Lets talk about another important factor of BB Cream:the lasting power.Well this BB Cream lasted very well & my face was fresh even after 5-6 hours of applying it with a face powder.It didnt wear off and neither I had problems with sweating.So I also hadnt had to retouch with powder at any time of the day.
Here is what I looked after 5-6 hours of applying it & spending a warm day out with friends.
You can alter the way how you wear BB Cream.Either you can combine it with a light moisturizer.You can also use a skin primer before applying the BB Cream.If you have to cover some major blemishes and imperfections then you can also use a concealer to hide the imperfections and then applying BB Cream just like a foundation all over the face.
I simply like to apply BB Cream all over the face & then set it with my powder.
This tube contains 50 ml of product & is available for Rs.399 nationwide which is pretty reasonable compared to Maybelline's 30 ml for Rs.700

If you havent tried a BB Cream yet,this is the tube to grab.Its the best thing to own this summer because it has UV & Vitamin C in it.Who doesnt want to feel light and look fresh and glowing even on a Hot day!
