To BB or not to BB, that is the question!!!

Evening all,

So for sometime now there has been a buzz in the beauty world surrounding BB creams, whether good or bad reviews they've been talked about and I'm extremely intrigued to know why!

There has been plenty on the market but the leader seems to be Garniers Skin Renew BB cream!
This miracle product promises a combination of lovely things to happen to your skin that i only thought dreams were made of. It not only protects from the sun with it's SPF's but it also has moisturiser, anti-ageing properties and makeup primer thrown in for good measure along with what claims to be quite a good coverage for basically a tinted moisturiser with extra bits lol.

Now what i found interesting was why they created BB creams in the first place... apparently it originates from Asia and it was created some years ago for women going for chemical peels and wanted abit of coverage while recovering but with normal foundations being to harsh for such sensitive skin they invented the marvel that is BB cream (blemish balm but some like to claim its actually called beauty balm... it's not lol) too provide the extra protection they needed to help with the recovery process.

The only slight draw back i see is the fact that there is very limited shades with the Garnier only providing light or medium but they do offer normal or an oil free version which as an unfortunate oily faced person i greatly appreciate!

So roll on payday because i shall be heading straight to Boots and whacking up a bad arse review so keep your eyes open for that :)
(I'd say eyes peeled but that sayings always freaked me out lol)

Whether your enjoying Euro vision or just any normal telly that doesn't involve peculiar behaving people, have a good evening!

  1. Ughh, I would NOT recommend the Garnier BB cream. I tried it out a few months ago and I absolutely hated it! Looks nice when you first put it on but it did not last at all for me, went patchy and super oily as the day went on. Passed it on to my boyfriends mum and she didn't like it either. It's weird though because I've seen some pretty good reviews on it! If you end up getting it, I hope it works out better for you! Maybe I was using it wrong haha! x

    1. ooo thanks for the heads up! i think becuase it was new out and BB creams are such a big thing theses days maybe people were just getting abit to excited about it lol. If that happened to you it will more then likely head that way for me too because i have oily skin :/ x

  2. I've tried the estee lauder and garnier bb creams, I prefer the estee lauder but it was a bit too dark for my skin tone. I've heard good things about the clinique one so I would love it if I could get a sample to try it out :) x

    1. Thats the trouble with the BB creams, there such a limited colour range its gonna be tricky for alot of people. ooo yeah clinique is a lovely brand, if you manage to try some you'll have to let me know how you get on :) x

  3. The blogging world is certainly going craaazy for BB creams at the moment! I really want to try the MUA one as its only £4! Great post, would love it if you could take a look at my blog -

    1. Yes it is, its hard to keep up with it all!! Ooo i never thought of that one! I love MUA products there so affordable yet real good qualitiy! maybe i could do a comparison post between that one and the clinique one or something :)
      Of course, i love reading new blogs! i'll happily stop by and follow, gotta support a fellow beauty blogger now :) x
