Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream


 


I've mentioned BB creams on this blog before, but since then BB creams have become more widely available as more brands are coming out with their own versions.  I love the one I have from Japan, but having a US version readily available that I like is great and much more convenient!

I started trying this Garnier Skin Renew BB cream initially because of a deal at CVS, which coupled with a coupon essentially made this tube only a few dollars out of pocket for me, haha.  But, after using it consistently for a few weeks, I would definitely buy this again!  It has a creamy consistency that isn't too thick, and the two different shades make it easier to get a color that blends with your natural skin tone.  It has a built in SPF15 which is always a nice plus, and is a great base for my regular daily makeup routine.  If anyone's been curious about BB creams but didn't want to pay too much to try it out, this one is a great choice!

  2. So happy to see it finally make the crossover! Garnier however hates my skin (or maybe it's the other way around). I've gotten really zitty w/ their products. T_T I know it has SPF 15 in it but do you also use a sunblock underneath this for like extra protection?

    1. I do use a Bliss moisturizer (just a little dab) which also has SPF 15, not sure how much it does though, haha.

  4. I bought Dr. Jart + and this is very similar (thanks for reminding me to go to CVS and use my coupons to buy it!). Garnier has a more sunscreen smell and goes on shinier, but after application I really can't tell the difference!

    Considering returning the $35 Jart... if only I could find the receipt...
