Garnier BB Cream Swatches Light/Medium & Medium/Deep

A few weeks ago Garnier was offering a free sample of their BB Cream and since I'd been wanting to try it out I requested the sample. It arrived yesterday and I must say I'm really glad I didn't purchase the full product because the lightest shade is still too dark for me.

The sample was pretty small but I still had enough for one full face application. Id say it has good coverage if it matches your skin tone in the swatch picture you can see they both cover the scar on my hand well. On me the lightest shade looked too yellow and you could tell I had something on that didn't match. Also on application I feel that it felt oily and not in a good way.

The full size of this product retails anywhere from $11.00 - $15.00 depending on where you buy it. I'm glad I waited to see how the sample colors were before buying. I've been searching for a perfect BB Cream that matches but no such luck yet.



Have you tried any BB Creams yet?

SN: Using the cheat method to figure out what will be in my Birchbox looks like I'll get to try out the Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB Cream. Fingers crossed that is accurate!

  1. I haven't heard particularly good things about the Garnier BB cream- apparently its very greasy! I am loving my Marcelle BB cream, and I've heard good things about the stila and Smashbox BB creams too!

    1. I too found it to be a bit oily. I saw your review on that it sounds wonderful!

  2. I received the sample too a week back but I haven't tried it yet.. In general I have not read good reviews about it so I'll definitely not buy full size but looking forward to Bobbi brown bb cream.. Thanks for the review!!:)

  3. The Light/Med looks pretty dark. This is the second bad review I've read about this product which is quite disappointing seeing as it is one of the cheaper ones available that you don't have to order offline.

    1. When I put it on it was very obvious it was too dark for me I think they should really consider expanding their color lineup with this.

  4. I got these same samples in a magazine. I didn't like it. They didn't give me much coverage ...

    1. I wish the sample would have been a bit bigger myself

  5. You know I haven't tried the bb creams yet! This looks like a great product but I've read these products may not be the best for combo skin!

    1. Yeah I wouldn't' say this one would work well for combo skin either since it felt a bit oily

  6. I bought the full size and wanted to love it, but it's too dark for me, too... I can get away with wearing it with some translucent powder on top, so it won't go to waste, but I'm really hoping to love the Dr. Jart!

    2. I like it a lot, too. In fact, once I learned how much I needed to use (not a lot), it's become my "go to" foundation the past three months. I'm about to have to repurchase. :)

  9. I tried a couple of Korean/Japanese brand ones before, but they just are too heavy for me, I think. I haven't tried the Garnier ones yet, but I just tried a Garnier moisturizer that I, surprisingly, LOVE!

  11. I actually really like this BB cream a lot, but I definitely had to play around with how much to use with each application. At first I was using waaaaay too much causing a very greasy feeling. I also have to apply powder on top due to my oily skin. If you'd like to know more about my opinion of it, here is my review I did when I first got it: http://smallstepsdaily.blogspot.com/2012/04/garnier-bb-cream-review.html
