Guest post: Char reviews Garnier BB cream

Happy Tuesday All! Today I have a special guest, my cousin Char from Foodprints!! This is the first ever guest post hosted on my blog, quite exciting and I got to share it with my cousin. You also get a break from all the grammatical errors that I usually make lol Char will be reviewing the new Garnier BB cream Oily & Combination skin.
..............................................................................................................................................................
This is my first time guest blogging and reviewing make up (as my blog is just an outlet for my food adventures) but I was excited when asked by Kerri of The Ugly Moments (also known as my dear cousin) if I wanted to guest blog, of course I was more than willing!

I've been a long-time user of Garnier's BB Cream but have always found the old formula very dewy once applied and I would never leave the house without applying some powder foundation over it. Once it ran out, I was ready to switch BB creams until Kerri asked if I wanted Garnier's New BB Cream and of course I couldn't say no. And I'm glad I didn't!
The new formula is a great improvement from the old. It is now oil-free; leaving you with a matte finish. It's great if you're in the rush and don't have time to do your make up each morning which I'm guilty of most days. And on days I do have time, I find it is a good alternative to using a primer. It also doesn't have an obnoxious and over-bearing fragrance to it anymore. It is lighter than the old formula yet it doesn't compromise on coverage, as I've found this new formula to give much better coverage and much easier to blend in.
I've been using this product for over a week now and I've found that my pores have minimised and my skin is more hydrated. I highly recommend this product to everyone and anyone!

  6. I've just purchased this too and been wanting to try it out. I liked the old formula but like Char had to always ensure I top off with translucent powder. I'm trying to get over a breakout (too much rosehip oil I think) then will be onto the oil-free formula ASAP. Char, did this clog your pores at all?

    1. I've haven't had an increase in blocked pores because of this product, and it's definitely less heavy than the previous formula so I'd say it will less likely to clog your pores once you switch products :)
