Garnier Oil-Free BB Cream

My favourite daytime base

Although this BB cream has been a staple in many a make-up bag for some time now, I felt compelled to mention it because I'm yet to find one better.

I’ve tried enough BB creams to last me a lifetime – from Estee Lauder to MUA Cosmetics – and never have I found one quite so lovely as Garnier’s Oil-Free BB Cream.

Before I begin, I must note that Garnier’s Daily All-in-One BB Cream is not at all the same as the Oil Free variation. I’ve found that it is lighter in consistency, quite greasy and does not always stand the test of a working day. The Oil Free version, however, is a true joy to use.

To apply this BB cream, I use my fingertips. The formula is of medium thickness and quite runny in texture, making it easy to blend and giving a light to medium coverage. It dries to a dewy finish, meaning that your base comes complete with a healthy glow but oilier skins may wish to seal in with a blot powder.

For an extra special glow, you may wish to mix this with a highlighter. Although it comes with brightening properties, should you mix a little Benefit High Beam in with it, your base will look both flawless and truly radiant. Sealed with a blot powder, you’ll keep that highlighted look with no worry of an oily t-zone.

As a daily base that is fresh enough for morning but good enough to last the day, this is a beauty staple of mine from 2012 that won’t be going anywhere in the new year. Catch it while there’s 20% off at feelunique.com.
