Afternoon Sweet Treat: Garnier BB Cream

With all the hype behind bb creams I knew I had to try one out for myself.  This Garnier BB Cream is at a very affordable $12 so I gave it a go.  At first I wasn't sure if I liked the texture-it goes on a bit heavy.  But after a few minutes of applying it seems to settle in and I no longer notice it.  It does great at evening out skin tone as it implies, and I love that it has an spf 15 built right in (although I would prefer a higher one). Bottom line, it is perfect for mornings when you only want to spend a few moments on makeup-just swipe it on and go!  I plan on using this all summer instead of foundation.

Make sure to stop by the blog tomorrow for the second installment of my new Saturday series, Dress, Drink, Dine!  I'll share with you the perfect outfit, cocktail and recipe to try over the weekend!


  1. Thanks for the review! I've been wondering how well the the Garnier BB cream worked! I will definitely have to give it a try!

  2. Ok so I saw this post last week and had been hearing so much about BB cream.. I never use foundation (I just dont like the way it feels on my skin, and while I have the occasional blemish, my skin is overall ok.. just starting to age as I hit 28 and work a lot ;) -- So I thought I'd check it out, and I LOVE it. It smooths me over and cuts out my concealers and one of my bronzers... thanks for your review or I never would have thought twice about it! :)
