BB cream is the best invention since dry shampoo, tampons and the wheel.

I know that's a bold statement, but seriously.

Have been a bit sceptical but bought this one yesterday.

It actually transformed my face - I looked glowing and radiant. Normally, I am neither of these things. Like a good night's sleep and a facial in one small tube. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

are they just primers?

AViewfromtheFridge Sat 22-Sep-12 10:58:29

Not exactly. It's like primer + moisturiser + foundation + radiance balm/ highlighter.

I used it straight after washing my face, then just put a bit of powder/ blushed on top.

I've got that one

I just look sweaty.

Was hoping you we're going to link to another brilliant one I could go and waste more cash on in an attempt to look fresh faced!

Oh, sorry! I did look a bit sweaty until I put powder on top actually. I take back what I said about the wheel.

The eternal quest for beauty eh. Sometimes I think if I was a man, life would be a lot simpler. Not to mention cheaper.

Must say I love it too - I have a horror of foundation but LG BB cream just seems to work perfectly for me, I think it's the luck of the draw whether it works for you.

I tried the superdrugs own and it was so greasy it just slid off my face. Ive just bought the garnier bb cream for oily skin. Its fab, having trouble with my skin at the moment due to implanon and its really helping as i dont need to use foundation. My mum also uses it, i would definately recommend it to anyone!

I was also hoping you were going to link to something brilliant. I've tried Garnier and Maybelline and I just look ill. I think my horrendous skin needs something you can only apply with a trowel sad

I have this one

I have that one in medium (which is a bit dark for my skin) I mix it with a drop of the oily skin one (in fair which is too light for my skin). Seems to create the perfect colour/anti shine combination. I then use bare minerals foundation over the top. Great coverage which lasts a good 4 hours (a miracle on my slippery chin)!

I have the one for oily skin and love it. Means that if I go out without make up on it doesn't matter because I know I don't look like death.

My face hated the Garnier one, I looked truely awful and it gave my a rash and made me break out. Very glad it was a sample and that I hadn't shelled out. Never again.

I bought some Elisha Coy BB cream after seeing recommended on here and by a friend. Its a korean brand, it you can find it on Ebay.

trixymalixy Sat 22-Sep-12 12:05:21

I have bought a couple of Korean BB creams on eBay, but I'm going back to the Garnier one as it suited me much better.

akaemmafrost Sat 22-Sep-12 12:08:12

I agree. The garner one is just fab. For day time wear it equals much more expensive coverage. I use Clarins and find it just as good. Makes me look healthily glowing rather than sweaty, great stuff.

Nermalkins Sat 22-Sep-12 12:10:50

I was the opposite, I loved Garnier but found that I loved Elisha Coy more. I still use Garnier (smile)

RikersBeard Sat 22-Sep-12 12:14:50

I have that one and love it. It also lasts for ages as you don't need much. My only question is, how is a BB different to a tinted moisturiser?

akaemmafrost Sat 22-Sep-12 12:17:48

I've got a Korean one as well Skin 79 Super BB VIP Gold collection. It's ok but the Garnier one is better. I use the Light one.
