Garnier Pure Active BB Cream – The Review

One of the latest Garnier BB offerings the Garnier Pure Active BB Cream Anti-Imperfections. I got my hands on it a couple of weeks ago and I have to say so far its my favourite of the Garnier BB Creams.

The BB Cream has been specially designed for combination to oily skin with imperfections. With the 2% Salicylic Acid Garnier claim that this BB Cream is as affective as other anti-blemish products. It also contains Mineral Pigments that instantly melt into the skin creating an even coverage. Plus its very light and fresh and lets the skin breath, with a subtle fragrance infused with citrus notes and Hespiride Cucumber which helps create the freshness.

Its a 5 in 1 BB Cream promises the following benefits:

  • reduce imperfections
  • reduce the appearance of black heads
  • reduce the size of pores
  • reduce redness
  • instantly beautifies skin

Afte 1 week Garnier is promises that the imperfections will be reduced. I can’t vouch for that as I haven’t used it every day but it defnitely beautifies the skin leaving it luminous.

Sadly there are only 2 shades light and medium so not all skin tones can wear the BB Cream but happily the medium shade pretty much matches my current skin tone and it doesn’t have a pink undertone like the previous BB Creams did for me, I had to mix 2 shades to try get mine.

Before: Me with not a stitch of make up!

After: I have applied the Garnier Pure Active BB Cream, concealer under the eyes and a touch of mascara.

The BB cream provides enough coverage for me to wear without anything else all I need to do is contour and add some blush.

Retailing at R84.95 the Garnier Pure Active BB Cream definitely gets a thumbs up for a great budget buy.
