My recent discovery of a magical thing called BB Creams has me totally obsessed. I use one every day instead of a traditional moisturizer or foundation. I’ve tried about five of them now and, while I don’t love them all, I do love the benefits they offer.
BB creams have been incredibly popular for years in Asia because of how beneficial they are for the skin and how easy they are to use as an all-in-one skin treatment. You wear it in place of your moisturizer or foundation and the formulation contains SPF 15, hydration properties, antioxidants, and skin brightening ingredients to help even out the skin tone, ¬all in one easy application. It’s a product like no other – a treatment for the skin that gives you an immediate healthy glow while also improving your skin’s look over time.
BB creams, given their popularity and vast benefits, often carry a hefty price tag to match – but not Garnier’s. At just around $12, their version is literally a fraction of most BB creams with all of the benefits, plus one huge advantage that leaves the others in the dust: an offering for deeper skin tones.
You see, a BB cream is usually offered in one shade that is supposed to morph into whatever your skin tone happens to be. Of course we know that this isn’t possible, and people with very light or very deep skin tones are left out. Garnier has a light/medium and a medium/deep, both with the same great BB benefits and both with invisible coverage that’s a snap to apply. Just use your fingers like you’re blending in a moisturizer and add more where you need. It somewhat magically melts into your skin, making it look better instantly and over time. It’s so easy to use and good for the skin that I’ve been recommending it to everyone, from teens to moms in a rush and anyone in between. It’s the ultimate moisturizer.
