Garnier BB Cream- When Make-up meets Skin Care



BB stands for "Beauty Balm" or "Blemish Balm" depending on the formula, and it is a tinted moisturizer with skin care ingredients and SPF. Originally formulated in Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek in the 1950, the cream was sold mainly on the Asian market- in South Korea and Japan (which is apparently the reason for the limited number of hues), being named ‘the secret of Korean actresses’.
Due to its multiple properties: moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunscree, the cream rapidly became a hit. Consequently, companies such as Garnier, Dr. Jart, Dior, Clinique and Estee Lauder started to launch it on the Western markets in 2011. 

I won my first Garnier BB Cream in a giveaway on Special Koko’s blog. It is available in two shades: Light and Medium and the first one is probably a bit too dark for a very pale skin. I own the Light version. Although I must admit that I initially was skeptical to try BB creams, the positive review read on other blogs convinced me and now I absolutely love them.

Garnier BB Cream is part of a revolutionary skin care trend, an all-in-one multi-tasking cream that promised to: even skin tone, correct blemishes/imperfections, hydrate, illuminate, regenerate, protect and prevent wrinkles. It has SPF and constitutes a good make-up base, with small to medium coverage.

Garnier BB Cream has a light consistency and blends really beautifully, even though it is only available in two shades. The first impression after I apply it is that it is a little bit too oily, so for those of you who have an oily complexion, I would recommend applying a little powder on top of it. Also, if you feel that you need more coverage, you can apply an additional layer or use foundation on the problematic areas.

I like it because it hydrates and evens my skin, giving it the perfect healthy glow. It works well both alone and under make-up, giving the impression of perfect skin. The fact that it has SPF 15 is a plus. Lately I wear it alone for small-medium coverage and sun protection, especially because I like a lighter make-up in the summer season.

Garnier BB Cream- Cand machiajul si ingrijirea pielii se imbina

BB vine de la "Beauty Balm" sau "Blemish Balm", in functie de formula si este o crema nuantatoare cu ingrediente destinate ingrijirii tenului si SPF. Conceputa originar in Germania, de catre medicul dermatolog Christine Schrammek in anii 1950, crema a fost vanduta cu precadere pe piata asiatica- in Coreea de Sud si Japonia (acesta pare sa fie motivul pentru numarul limitat de nuante disponibile), fiind supranumita:” secretul actritelor coreene”. Datorita proprietatilor ei multiple: crema hidratanta, primer, fond de ten si protectie solara, crema a cunoscut un succes rapid. In consecinta, firme precum Garnier, Dr. Jart, Dior, Clinique and Estee Lauder au inceput sa o lanseze pe piata europeana in anul 2011.

Am castigat prima mea crema Garnier BB Cream la un giveaway, pe blogul lui Special Koko. Crema este disponibila in 2 nuante: light si mediu, iar prima este probabil prea inchisa pentru un ten extrem de deschis la culoare. Eu detin nuanta “light”. Desi trebuie sa recunosc ca initial am fost sceptica fata de utilizarea de BB creams, review-urile pozitive citite pe alte bloguri m-au convins si acum le ador.

Garnier BB Cream este exponenta unui curent revolutionar in ingrijirea tenului, o crema cu efecte multiple, care promite: uniformizarea imperfectiunilor, hidratare, iluminare, regenerare, protejare si prevenirea ridurilor. Contine SPF si contituie o buna baza de machiaj, avand acoperire mica-medie.
Garnier BB Cream are o consistent usoara si uniformizeaza frumos tenul, in ciuda numarului limitat de nuante in care este disponibila. Prima impresie imediat dupa aplicare este de consistenta putin prea uleioasa, asa ca recomand fixarea cu pudra pentru cele dintre voi care au tenul gras. Daca va doriti un grad mai ridicat de acoperire, puteti aplica un strat suplimentar de crema sau utiliza fond de ten pe zonele problematice.

Imi place pentru ca imi hidrateaza si uniformizeaza tenul, oferindu-i acel efect perfect de stralucire naturala. Este eficienta deopotriva singura si in combinatie cu fondul de ten, impresia  fiind aceea de piele perfecta. Faptul ca are SPF 15 constituie un plus. In ultima saptamana, o folosesc in locul fondului de ten, pentru acoperire usoara si protectie solara, in special pentru ca prefer un machiaj mai putin incarcat in sezonul estival.

Cantitate: 50 ml
Pret: Aproximativ 30 RON

  1. păcat că eu nu-mi găsesc o bb cream sau o cc cream waterproof, căci am probleme majore cu rezistența produselor astea.
