Is it just me, or do you too think its getting warm here in Dubai? Starting this review, I shall be sharing with you guys a slice of my life along with a Slice of Dubai. Its been nearly a year since I started blogging, but I’ve realized there is so little you know about me other than the fact that I am some girl who writes reviews and manages some decent photography.
So if you haven’t been through our About column, do so now and watch this space in our future reviews to know a bit more about us.
Back to where we began from, aren’t warmer days this time of the year somewhat depressing to you? I’m pretty much in that desperate state where I’m scrambling to wear my winter clothes for the last time before it becomes warm enough to tuck them away. Its pretty much like the last kiss when you’re in a long distance relationship when you know you’re not going to see each other for another year. Trust me, I’ve seen both.
But you know what’s good in life? Things that stick by your side no matter what. Like the promise of winter, the love that survives beyond time and distance, and products that are faithful to you for years together.
One such product is the Garnier Skin Naturals BB cream. I had tried this product when I first came to Dubai and now 2 years down the line, I’m still hooked!
Garnier BB Cream is the all-round solution for skin. It provides a daily multi-benefit care with moisturizing, protecting and unifying properties to keep every woman’s skin looking and feeling healthy-looking. Garnier BB Cream is the five-in-one solution for every skin need. It evens out your skin tone, while blurring imperfections and lines and bringing a healthy glow to the skin. It also provides 24-hour moisture and protects skin from UVA/UVB rays. This makes it a smart skin solution for every woman, no matter what her requirement or shade.
The Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream-Miracle Perfector comes in a nude colored plastic tube with a flip-to-open cap. This makes it very easy to squeeze out just the right amount as desired.
When you take some BB cream from the tube, the first thing that hits you is its pleasant floral fragrance. It is not too overpowering, but pleasing enough to kick-start your day on a fresh note.
I’m testing the BB Classic which is available for all skin types, in three shades, ranging from Extra Light, to Light and Medium. This is what a drop of ‘Light’ looks like.
To apply, squeeze out a small amount and apply small dots all over your face. Then, using your fingertips or a wet sponge, spread the cream to coat your face evenly. I prefer to use my fingers for this as a sponge tends to absorb most of the cream. Also, who doesn’t like a good massage at the start of the day?
The Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream-Miracle Perfector provides a light coverage that is fit for daily use. If you would like to enhance the natural color of your skin without looking made-up every single day – then this BB cream is the choice for you!
However, a word of caution here. While this BB Cream is great for those with dry to normal skin, those on the oily side might want to try their BB Oil-Free cream. This is because the Classic BB cream tends to make your skin look a tad bit oily. To avoid this, I usually dab some powder foundation over it to give it a matte, professional finish.
Powder blushes and eye shadows also adhere to this product very well, and this makes the Garnier BB Cream a great choice for my hurried mornings!
The Garnier Skin Naturals Classic BB Cream is a wonderful light coverage solution for everyday flawless skin. It acts as a great base for basic makeup and lasts up to 6-8 hours without touch-ups. On the flip side, it could prove unsuitable for oily skin types, which require a specialized solution such as the BB Oil-Free cream. However, for those with Dry, Normal or Combination skin types – this product works just fine and gives a matte finish when dabbed with a matching powder foundation.
The Garnier BB cream Classic [AED 31.50] is available for all skin types, in three shades, ranging from Extra Light, to Light and Medium.
