The Garnier Skin Perfector B.B. Cream claims to hydrate, correct wrinkles and skin imperfections, protect, even, & brighten the skin tone. It contains mineral pigments and Vitamin C, and has an SPF 15 to protect the face from sunburn. The cream is offered in two skin tones - light/medium and medium/dark.
I bought the cream in light/medium, because medium/dark was a little bit dark for my skin, even with my tan. The first thing I noticed about this product was how little product was needed to cover a big area. The tiny swatch I tested in the store covered my whole hand and some of my arm. This means that this seemingly small tube will last a very long time, even if you use it every day.
When using this product, I use it in place of moisturizer and foundation. It does a good job of evening out skin tone and brightening the face, but I find that I still need to use a concealer to cover up under-eye circles and some of the worse red spots on my face. It also does a good job of moisturizing, but I find that it is too greasy for my skin. There is nothing on my bottle about containing oil or not, so I assume that it's not oil-free. I should have known better than to buy any face product that wasn't oil free, since my skin is very oily in the first place. Even when I use a setting-powder on top of this cream, I find that my face becomes oily very fast - something that doesn't happen with my regular foundations.

I like this idea of this product in the summer, in place of a heavy foundation. It evens out skin tone and brightens quite well, plus the added benefit of being a sunscreen. However, because it makes my skin greasy quite quickly, it is not ideal for my skin, personally. Next time I look for a B.B. Cream to buy, I will have to find one that is oil-free.
Have you tried any B.B. Creams yet?
