Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review

Not all BB Creams are created equal! BB Creams (Blemish Balms Creams) are the craze in the Asian beauty market and they are slowing popping up in Europe and trickling into North America. However, after trying out the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream (not yet available in North America) which was purchased in the U.K I have to admit its not at the same level as the Asian BB Creams. For a review of my favourite BB Cream, read here!
As a product itself, the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector acts more as a tinted moisturizer with light sheer coverage. Not highly pigmented as I would like vs. the Asian BB Creams. Only available in two shades: Light and Medium. I have the Light shade which actually blends nicely. This is a thick creamy product that reminds me of a whipped creamy lotion (think Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation), has a slight tacky feel to skin upon application that eventually dries to a semi-matte finish.
Overall: as a BB Cream I was left disappointed as this product didn't live up to my previous experiences with BB Creams (Asian versions). However, if I was to classify this product more as a tinted moisturizer with sheer coverage its decent. Works well mixed with heavier foundations and that's how I've been using this product. Also, has the typical Garnier scent.
Price £10 at SuperDrugs or Boots
Have you tried BB Creams? And if yes, your thoughts?


  1. Hiya,

    I use and love the Mishaa Perfect BB Creme which I bought here in Toronto in Korea Town. I was very excited to hear that some of the big beauty manufacturers were going to introduce their own BB creams into the NA market...but I've read several not so flattering reviews thus far so I'm not sure I'll be jumping on that bandwagon. For right now, I'll stick with what works for me and that's the Mishaa.

    Thanks, Lisa

  2. Lisa, where in Korea Town did you get your Mishaa?
