My Opinion: - I have been reviewing many a Garnier products of late, so I thought why not review their hit product the newly  (ok not very new) launched BB Cream. I have been using the Garnier BB Cream since last December. At that time I bought the smaller tube as I wanted to experiment with it first. The first time I applied it on my face, I was in for a surprise. Coming to the packaging first, this BB Cream comes in a beige-gold plastic tube with a white plastic screw-on cap and a nozzled neck to dispense required amount of product. Its packaging is similar to the Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Ceam. 

                   The fragrance is very sweet, like that of roses. It lingers on for a about 5-7 mins before fading off. Its a thick-ish cream and looks like foundation. Its light-weight and spreads on easily on my face. It blends like a dream and I  do not have to keep massaging the cream. This BB Cream sinks into my skin and does not sit on top of it. It gives enough moisture to my skin which I love.

                    This BB Cream gives a matte finish and stays put that way for a long time. In an Air-conditioned environment, this BB Cream stays on matte for about 6-7 hours after which it gives a glow to my T zone. But in a non air-conditioned environment it stays matte for around 5 hours and then gives a subtle shine to my T zone. This cream does not makes my skin greasy. During the winters (December/January) I had to moisturise my skin before applying the BB Cream.
 But now I do not need to apply a separate moisturizer underneath this BB Cream.

                   This BB Cream comes with SPF 24 and photographs well. The coverage is sheer but can be built up to medium. It does not looks cakey on my skin even after building up a little. This BB Cream from Garnier evens out my skin tone, hides my light under eye circles and also conceals minor flaws like spots. It also gives a pore-less finish to my skin and works as a great base for foundations. Its one product I reach out when I am in a hurry.

Pros: -

* Affordable (compared to Maybelline's 18 ml for INR 199) and Easily Available

* Blends like a dream

*  Stays matte for long

* Does not make my skin greasy, just gives a subtle shine/glow towards the end

* Stays put till I take it off myself

* Washes off easily with any face wash, no need of makeup remover

* Little goes a long way, I am using this since first week of January and the tube still has some product left in it

* SPF 24 plus UVA/UVB protection is always appreciated

* Travel-friendly and gets into most purses

* All claims are true (partially)

Cons: -

* Only 1 shade has been made available by Garnier in India, too fair or too dark skin tones will not be able to carry it I suppose

* Miracle Skin Perfector is rather a tall claim

          I rate Garnier BB Cream SPF 24 4.75 out of 5. I recommend this BB Cream to all girls try it out atleast once. But dry skin beauties please moisturise skin properly before using this BB Cream. Also think twice before purchasing if you are a little too fair or too dusky a beauty. Absolutely recommend to 'oilies' like me.
