Garnier's Oil Free Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream - Review



Whenever I review a BB Cream the most asked question is always have I tried any of Garnier's
newer BB Creams, with that is mind I simply had to pick one up to see what the fuss was all about.
There is a good few new variations of the original Garnier BB Cream now readily available
but the one best suited to my skin type is the oil free version.


The packaging is nothing to write home about nor is troublesome in any shape or form,
the oil free version of Garnier's Oil Free Miracle Skin Perfector comes presented in a long
squeeze style tube with a slim nozzle that dispenses the product fairly well.
It is worth noting that this is not the thickest BB Cream in terms of texture so don't push too hard
on the tube or you will end up with excess product and as a result waste.


Garnier's Oil Free Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream comes in two shades - light and medium,
now this is one of the few BB Creams western or not that lives up to the medium shade claim
and is a great mid tone shade suitable for most medium skin tones as it does adapt and blend
into the skin's natural skin tone when applied.


As always I have included my mole as a coverage reference.

So what does it claim to do and what does it do?
Garnier claims that it mattifies the skin, reduces the appearance of imperfections (blemishes etc),
hydrates, evens skin tone, gives a healthy glow and has an SPF 20.
First of all I do have to be that guy and point of that it is very thin and loose in texture
and not at all as hydrating as the Asian BB Creams but as oily skin types don't really require such
levels of moisturisation I don't deem this to be an issue but I do feel it is worth pointing out.
It does glide on the skin with ease and covers moderately well concealing most imperfections
such as my acne scarring and providing a great even base.
I do not find it to settle into my enlarged pores nor does it highlight any other imperfections.
The glow element I do not understand as it settles to a matte finish and wears oil free on my 
particularly troublesome oily skin for close to 8 hours when set with powder
before signs of oil and wear creep in.


All things considered Garnier Oil Free BB Cream is a really great UK high street BB Cream that delivers on so many levels and is one that I do regularly reach for on light make-up days.
If you have oily skin and fancy trying out a BB Cream this is certainly one I recommend giving a whirl.

  2. I just bought this BB Cream and I can't wait to try it (so far, in my country I had only the original formula and since I have oily skin wasn't really good for me, but it wasn't that bad either).

  5. I might give this a try next time I'm in Boots. I've not really got on very well with BBs, the maybelline one cause me to breakout horribly & the Baviphat one gave a really strange finish. Perhaps it'll be 3rd time lucky with this.

  6. I have the regular Garnier BB which I quite like, this one may be better suited though for my oily skin

  7. I've had this for a good two months now and I highly recommend it, I have very oily skin which this cream manages to keep at bay for the majority of the day. Plus it's just enough coverage for school/running errands when you don't want to wear a lot of makeup anyway. Overall a really nice product!

  8. Looks interesting! I tried a sample of the US original version and it basically did nothing but cover a bit of redness.

  12. I adore this BB cream, like a lot of people I avoided BB creams because of my oily combination skin, but this is amazing. Its one of my favourite products of 2012! I did a review on it here:

    1. In my opinion this is far superior, the original was too thick, heavy and oily for my skin this is much much better :)

    2. I think the original one was for dry skin, this one is for oily and combination skin, maybe that's why it was kind of greasy (the original one) for most people. I think that they should have done a better job explaining that. Would've saved me the trouble of getting it and leaving it in a corner after one try. I tried this one recently and it's nothing like the other one, especially texture-wise, this one is more liquid, the original one was more of a cream/balm.

      I love your reviews by the way =) can't wait for the next.

    1. I couldn't handle any more moisture or i'd be an oil slick zone hahaha! But have you tried a light serum or moisturiser before applying?

  16. I bought the Garnier BB cream before they had the oil free version and hated it because it was so greasy. But I might give this a go! x

  17. I have bought this product twice now and have to say I originally loved it but now I cant go near it. My new tube just seemed to be quite orangey toned (i go for the light version) and made me breakout. It was so strange as my first tube waa amazing. Lovely review as always x

  18. I've been using the original for a while now but I think this one would be better for my skin type. Good thing you've warned us about the looser liquid, because I'm a bit too liberal when I use my bb cream! Xo

  19. I boughthisin ligt but it's way to orange for me and it lasts around an hour before going patchy then it disappears after around 3 hours :(

  22. I just purchased this and have tried it. I think it is a great product especially if you are looking for something in between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation.
