So as you probably remember, ages ago I tried out the original samples for Garnier's BB Cream and this was from the initial testing, then when they finished it and got promoting it everywhere, I decided to go out and buy myself the finished product. I have mixed opinions of B.B. Creams...Korean versions? Yes. Chinese versions? Occasionally. English versions? Barely ever. I've tried out lots of British 'BB Creams' and the majority are honestly just repackaged foundations. I turned to BB originally due to skin whitening, my body was whitening due to the treatments I was putting on it and therefore British makeup was far too dark and heavy for my new skin tone *which you can view here in part 3 of my skin whitening post*. When Garnier announced this BB, I thought all of my base problems would be solved...turned out they weren't. I've nearly finished my bottle of this BB now...although admittedly the cream is better than foundations, it's like a crazy hybrid... Honestly, I haven't tried many BB Creams, so I have little to compare this to. It's not great though...
It is the first BB Cream in Britain at the end of the day, it gave way to the new ones and I think eventually Britain will catch-up with Europe and Asia and develop some good ones, I doubt however they'll develop ones for lighter tones due to Britain being pretty much completely against skin whitening/brightening/bleaching. (Which could also be why Garnier's BB, although it contains SPF...it's only 15 - what does SPF 15 do?? Nothing.)

you just came out of TOWIE using this "BB Cream"?
