Garnier BB Cream For Combination To Oily Skin

Hey everyone! Got a quick review for you today, of Garnier's new BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin.

It claims to:
Be anti-shine
Blur pores and imperfections
Even tone and boost glow
Have SPF 20 protection

I got this as part of a magazine subscription gift along with a few other Garnier skincare products, but this was the most exciting part! I did own the original Garnier BB cream, but we didn't get on well. It made my skin greasy, shiny, the coverage was bad and it never lasted. Which is what you'd expect for a normal BB cream on an oily skinned girl.

There are quite a few differences between the original BB cream and this new version. The packaging is the most obvious, with the original coming in a shorter wider tube with a flip top lid. The new version comes in a long sleek packaging with a screw top lid with a pointed applicator.

Compared to its original counterpart, this new BB cream has a much thinner, runny consistency, but provides more coverage. It goes on matt, and stays that way for a good few hours. I'd definitely say it blurs imperfections to a certain extent!

I really like this new version of the Garnier BB cream. For those who lean towards the oilier side of skin types, I'd definitely say give this a go if you're looking for a lightweight product to give a bit of coverage on days where you don't want to wear heavy foundation.

I hope you enjoyed this review! Bye for now :) xx


  1. I have high hopes for this one, since the original was the worst thing I have bought for a long time.
    Thanks for the review :) x

  2. I didn't like the original one much either. It made me shiny during the day, though my skin isn't very oily. This one seems to be much better, so I might give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for this review :)
    Wasnt keen on the original but now tempted to try again!

  4. I really like this BB cream- it's the best I've tried for my oily skin. Great review x


Thanks for all your lovely comments! :)
