The natural-looking BB cream that looks after your skin, too

Garnier Skin Active BB Cream Naturals

Our Review Crew® put Garnier Skin Active BB Cream Naturals to the test

Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / July 01 2020

The product

When BB creams came onto the market, our time-saving beauty prayers were answered. Instead of moisturising, colour correcting and applying foundation in separate steps, we could achieve all of these goals with one product. Now, Garnier have boosted the benefits of their latest BB cream and given us a 90 per cent natural origin formula that’s enriched with ingredients like green tea extract, vitamin E and mineral pigments for a skin care and makeup product in one that also protects and improves our skin while giving the complexion a beautiful, natural-looking coverage.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Garnier Skin Active BB Cream Naturals to women aged 18 to 35 years with normal skin, who are seeking a lightweight, natural coverage and day-long hydration.

The lowdown

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about Garnier Skin Active BB Cream Naturals:

The lightweight feel and its no-makeup makeup coverage: Review Crew® members were fans of how weightless the formula felt on their skin, while still giving them a natural daytime coverage that evened out their skin tone.

The formula’s scent: A number of reviewers commented on the lovely scent of the BB cream, accrediting it to the green tea in the formula. The fragrance was light and pleasant, but not too overpowering.

How gentle it was on sensitive skin: A number of reviewers commented on how they have sensitive skin and were apprehensive to try this product, however they found the formula to be gentle on their skin, with some even praising its ability to cover up redness. Other reviewers also loved how moisturising the BB cream felt. 

Good to know: Because this BB cream has a thick consistency, some reviewers found it difficult to blend. The preferred method was to use fingers to smooth the product over skin, rather than a makeup brush or sponge.

The verdict

“I really enjoyed trialling this product & it is a quick, easy multitasker, which makes my skin look great! It imparts a beautiful natural lit-from-within glow, with a light comfortable texture. It is hydrating on my skin & doesn't feel greasy at all. I love wearing this on weekends and when l want a no-fuss no-makeup look as it gives my skin a healthy radiance! I would repurchase this as it is also good value for money as well as being great quality.”

“Love Garnier and loved this product. Super quick and easy to use for daytime, leaving my skin feeling light and fresh whilst still giving me a light makeup look. Great for a busy mum to put on in the morning without feeling cakey but feeling like you have something on.”

“I absolutely love the Garnier BB cream. It is enough coverage to even out my skin tone but light enough to not be over the top. Should I need more coverage for night I just add a powder foundation and it’s perfect. Garnier BB is definitely in my top 3 makeup products!”
