THE SKINNY: If you're looking for an affordable and worthwhile BB cream to test out, consider trying the cost-effective Garnier's Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. This is a lighter-coverage option than the more expensive BB creams on the market.
This cream is only available in light/medium and medium/dark, so you may need to mix it with a little moisturizer to get the color right for your skin type.
I tried both, courtesy of a sample pack from Garnier, and even though it's summer, found the light/medium to be the best option (as expected) for my fair skin. The medium/dark really wasn't that dark on my fair skin, but it did seem to accentuate my pores, which seemed a little weird to me.
Garnier's cream will help even out your skin tone and fade some lines and spots on your face. But it's not heavy enough to mask all your flaws.
This cream went on smoothly and left my skin feeling soft and looking decent, similar to a tinted moisturizer.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.
CHECK IT OUT: This product gets mixed reviews (people either love it or hate it) on the Garnier website.
