I Heart: Garnier Miracle BB Cream

When I was about 11 years old I had horrible acne. I remember one boy in my grade telling me “it looks like a bicycle has run over your forehead.”  Needless to say I was really upset. Ever since then I've been obsessed with all kinds of skin care products that would improve the condition of my skin. Thankfully the universe decided to bless my skin after puberty… so i'm no longer struggling with acne, but I still can’t say that I have flawless skin because I still get blemishes from time to time and I have a few freckles in unwanted places.

Anyway, in early December I discovered a product that I can’t get enough of so I thought I would share it with you guys. It’s a Blemish Balm cream - (BB cream). It’s a product that I absolutely love and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to discover it. 

(Ops.The BB was not blended inn properly here)

For someone like me who has a very busy schedule, the BB Cream is a huge time saver. The one I own is called “Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One B.B”. It’s an all-in-one skincare solution that immediately perfects your skin. It’s a light cream that evens out your skin tone and gives you a nice glow. The cream blurs out imperfections and redness and smooths out the appearance of fine lines. Not only does the bb cream make you look good, it also hydrates and protects your skin from the sun. 

The BB cream is perfect for me because it takes less than 15 seconds for me to apply it and I love how flawless and fresh the cream makes my skin look. I apply the BB cream in the morning before my makeup in the same way as I would apply a moisturizer. However I no longer apply foundation because I think the BB cream already gives me the coverage that I’m looking for.. but if I do have a blemish I just cover it up with concealer.  

With all the benefits that come with this cream, I feel like I've discovered gold in a tube because most mornings i really can't be bothered to 'tap' on foundation which takes forever.. Unlike with a foundation, I feel like my skin can breath with the BB cream. However, the BB cream is not for everyone. I would say that I have fair skin but I still have a light tan from spending most of my summers in warmer climates. If you have really pale skin it might be a problem for you to use the BB cream since it only comes in two shades: light or medium. I personally chose the light one and it fits me really well. But if you’re really pale it might not blend in perfectly with your skin tone. The BB cream might also be a little shiny if you chose the wrong cream. So it’s important to read the label carefully and chose a oil free cream if you have oily skin.

Until now I can’t say anything actually negative about this product. If you haven’t tried it I definitely recommend doing so :)


  1. Looks like it fits your skin perfectly!

  2. bb creams are really great! nice post!

  3. I have this! I agree with you & now I want to give it another try, I'm trying to use up my nuxe one but I'll be using this alot after I'm done with the Nuxe one (ps nuxe one is so lovely too)

    In general I think I'm so over foundations too :p why would anyone use a foundation on a daily when there's bb cream??


    1. I agree, sometimes though i use added concealer.. I don't know why but i keep waking up with really bad circles under my eyes lately.. but i'm glad i'm done with buying foundations. I'll rather spend my money on other things :) xox

  4. whoo*

    i did a post on this exact product but it didn't work for me.. my skin got crazy itchy *cries*

    i had heard a lot of great things for it too... so thought i'd try it out.. especially since it's much cheaper then korean BBcreams.. but to my dismay it wasn't a go for me :(

    but glad it works well for you. looking forward to seeing more of your beauty reviews!


  5. agree i love this product, especially for days i want minimal light make up :)
