B.B - Best Buy?

Everyday I log onto Blogger for my daily fashion/beauty fix. There are so many amazing blogs out there that really do inspire readers to try or do new things! I love reading about the latest must-haves and I am a huge sucker for a new product to try or the latest clothing trends, and I just wanted to share my opinions with those who want to hear.

This blog is going to be a place for my beauty reviews, products to try (or not to try!) and basically what I spend my hard earned wages on!

I think it's fair to say if you haven't heard about Garnier's B.B cream, you have been living in a cave! I can't make it through an episode of X Factor without it being advertised. So of course I HAD to give it a try...

Last week I purchased this from Boots (advantage card points!!) for £9.99. I have a really pale complexion so I bought the Light but it does also come in a slightly darker shade. So firstly the texture is smooth and leaves your skin soft after use, and it smells amazing! I feel this is would be a fab alternative to foundation in the summer. However there are a few down sides, I found that it left my face quiet shiny (I had read that other users had used a powder over the top to give a more matte effect). I love the dewy look, and it is back again this season, but there is dewy - then there's greasy! After discovering this I experimented with using the cream as a base for my foundation, this is perfect as a primer and quickly replaced my No7 colour calming primer.This really helps to keep my make-up in place all day, even when I'm up at 5:15am. I will defiantly be purchasing again.
