The hottest product of the year, and especially of the summer, has to be the BB Cream. I’ve talked about BB Creams before on here, but for those that don’t know, a BB Cream (or “Beauty Balm”) is an all-in-one skin perfector that hydrates, smoothes, protects, treats and covers skin for a flawless finish in one step. Since becoming extremely popular in North America, almost every brand has launched their own version of BB Cream, and one of the most popular launches has been from Garnier. Since the launch of the first Garnier BB Cream ($19.99 CAD), the family has grown to include different skin tones and targeting for different skin concerns.
The Garnier BB Cream Family includes the original Light/Medium shade, which made everyone fall in love with the formula. Soon it was followed by the Light shade to appeal to those with porcelain complexions. Next came the Combination to Oily Skin formula which banishes shine, reduces pores and keeps skin looking fresh all day and now Garnier is expanding the family once again with a brand new Anti-Aging formula, launching July 2013. This new formula hydrates, protects and covers without settling into wrinkles- a great formula for mature skin. I also found it to be little more thicker than the other formulas, much more similar to a traditional Asian BB Cream formula!
I’ve personally been loving the Combination to Oily Skin formula for these hot, humid summer days- but all of the formulas are really fantastic and offer great coverage, hydration and protection for a quick, all-in-one step.
