Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream

When I did a review on the Maybelline BB cream I got a few comments that it wasn't enough coverage for them so I was on the hunt for a BB cream with great coverage! As I am a member of Bzzzagent a online marketing company where you do surveys and depending on if you match a companies criteria you can review their products for free. I got chosen for the Garnier BB cream campaign. 

The Garnier BB cream aims to even tone hydrate, renew, protects and brightens and I got mine in medium/deep.

Wanted to swatch it on my hand first and as you can see it looks like it will give good coverage.

I then blended it into my skin and as you can see it def brightens my skin, evens tone left a little part of my hand on the left without the BB cream. It is also lightweight and doesn't make my face feel heavy at all. No breakouts!

Overall, I was loving my new BB cream I was even considering using it as my primary one.


I noticed the bottle leaks and it did all over one of my ipsy bags. I was so sad lol bc it stained it. So now I can't carry it in my bag bc even though I cleaned it off it keeps doing this. Not sure if I have a defected one or the hole in the bottle is just too big and the BB cream can just ooze out. Now if it didn't leak I def would be using it but it isn't.

So I guess its off to find another good BB cream.

  1. I have this exact bb. I love the length of wear, the fact that it controls greasiness, and covers nicely...makes my skin look better. But I hate that my bottle also leaks and its missing the nice sent of the regular garnier bb...but overall, will continue to purchase. Great review.

  2. uh oh where there goes my theory that it was just my bottle. If they fix it then it would be a great BB cream. I just cant carry it my makeup bag anymore too messy. thanks for the comment

  3. Oh yikes! I def. am looking into purchasing a BB cream, and I've been interested in this one. I'm glad you reviewed it :] Because I know nothing about makeup hahahahah <3

  4. I've tried a bunch of BB creams and so far my favorite is by a brand called Missha. It has fabulous coverage, great texture, is moisturizing, but not greasy. And the bottle doesn't leak!!

  5. I have heard really good things about the Maybelline one.
