Product Review: Garnier’s New BB Range


I’m halfway through my journey with Garnier and it’s only 3 weeks before we select a Capetonian Garnier Girl! It’s been fun hearing from some of our readers about their skin types, what they’re looking for in a BB Cream and some of the issues that they have with their skin. (If you’d like to read the stories from our readers you can have a look here: )

In keeping with sharing about Garnier’s new BB range I wanted to share some of the issues I face with my skin and why I’ve been recommending Garnier’s new products to everyone that asks.

My Skin Type

I have easy skin – I get very few breakouts, and my skin tends to be normal (not greasy or dry). In summer I sometimes have a slightly oiler t-panel. What I struggle with is dark circles under my eyes and a slight patchiness or rednessin my skin colour, especially around my nose.

Garnier’s BB Options


My skin is VERY pale and so I go for Garnier’s Light BB creams. They also offer Medium and Dark creams so there is something for everyone! They have 2 different options – one for normal skin and one for normal/combination skin. Both offer have an SPF of 20 (which is always important considering the climate we live in) and both offer excellent, even coverage. Both creams are very reasonably priced and easily offer the benefits and quality of their more expensive counterparts.


Garnier’s BB Cream For Normal Skin

IMG_1793The colours are similar although the tone for the Normal Skin BB is slightly darker and I think slightly better than the Combination BB Cream. The one thing I noticed with the Normal Skin BB Cream is that it tended to make my skin a little oily especially in the t-panel area. The coverage of the cream is great – it gives your skin an even coverage covering up redness and muting (though not covering) the shadows under my eyes.


Garnier’s BB Cream for Combination Skin

IMG_1507[1]This cream also offers great coverage but without the slight greasiness making it my favourite of the two. The colour is slighly lighter than the BB cream for normal skin so people who normally opt for a light shade might prefer the medium shade for this cream.
