Time for a another product review. This review is all about the newly released Garnier BB cream thats aimed towards people with oily/combination skin. I purchased the original formula a while back but I had to return that after 1 application because it was just way too thick and made my skin really itchy.
Garnier heard everyone's cries and finally came out with something that is a little bit more friendly towards people who turn into a greaseball after a couple hours.
Enter the Combination/Oily Skin formula:
What the product claims to do:
(Content taken from Garnier's website: link!)
Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin immediately mattifies, minimizes pores and conceals imperfections to give skin a naturally smooth, matte, flawless finish. Blends easily with your skin tone.
- Non comedogenic - won't clog pores
- Non acnegenic - won't cause breakouts
- Oil-free, non-greasy
Fragrance: The original BB cream formula had a very heavy flowery scent which I wasnt a fan of. I'm glad that the light version doesnt have that heavy scent which can be quite irritating especially to people who have sensitive skin.

|my bare face part 2 :P|
Color: The shade I bought for medium/deep complexions has a lot more pink in it that I would like :( This maybe the only downside to this product since I have very yellow undertone asian skin. I found that maybe you can color correct this by using a more yellow based powder to counter the "pinkness of the product. Because of how pink the product is, it doesnt look quite natural on without a powder.
|the medium/deep shade is quite pink :(|

Price: $10-14 depending on where you buy it. Got mine at Target for $11.99.
Would I Recommend it?: Yes, if you have oily skin and you have fairly good skin that doesnt need a lot of coverage :)
Hope this was helpful!
