A BB cream stands for blemish balm, a soothing cream that was first developed in the 50's and used by dermatologists in Germany to help calm, soothe and heal a patients skin after surgical procedures, treating post laser scars, acne and blemishes.
BB cream's in the last few years have become popular particularly in Asian countries. Garnier are the first brand to release a BB inspired cream in Australia.
Garnier says: Miracle Skin Perfector delivers a hybrid formula that combines long-lasting 24hr hydrating care with a light touch of make-up for instantly flawless, healthy glowing skin. Its lightweight formula contains a unique mix of active ingredients including vitamin C, SPF15 UV filters and mineral pigments. Applied daily, Miracle Skin Perfector spreads evenly for a flawless finish without the heaviness of a foundation. Instantly skin is beautified, hydrated and protected.
I have been testing out the Garnier BB cream provided for review, for the last few weeks and I do like the concept of a BB cream.There are some things that I like and don't like about this cream.
The five instant benefits it provides are:
1. Hydrate for 24hrs
2. Even tone
3. Correct blemishes
4. Boost healthy glow
5. SPF 15 protection
The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream comes in a 50ml squeeze tube, easy to use and handy to use when travelling. The texture is thick gel-like cream, that is soft, lightweight, easy to blend and soaks into the skin within seconds. It feels very hydrating on the skin, definitely gives a instant dewy glow to the skin, evens out skintone and reduces my redness.
This has spf 15 in it, which is great that there is sun protection, as my skin is sensitive to the sun, I put a sunscreen underneath for the added spf. You can also use this as primer under foundation, when needing more coverage.

This Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream would be good to use on days, when you don't want to wear foundation and just want a light coverage. Also great for those that don't have time to put on moisturiser, sunscreen, foundation separately - this is a all in one and works well with evening out the skintone, reducing redness and hydating the skin. It is sold at $13.95AUD and available in supermarkets and department stores.
