Summer Must: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin

Garnier has two BB creams, one for normal to combination skin and one for combination to oily skin.
Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin ($12.99, left, skinnier tube) - This one is more of a liquid than a cream- and I HATE the packaging. You have to store it upside down otherwise you'll have a pool of product in the cap. I'm not looking forward to traveling with it this summer, I'll definitely put it in a couple ziplock bags.

It mattifies, minimizes pores and conceals imperfections with SPF 20. I put this to the test the other day when it was 90 degrees and I was sweating and it stayed on longer than most foundations. I then wore it to the gym and bicycled for 30 minutes. Afterward it wasn't perfect, but it was still there. I'm about an NC 25 I think in MAC and I got medium/deep and it matches very well.

Overall I was very impressed with this. In the morning I use Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion SPF 30 and apply this over it. Coverage is buildable and the finish is satin. Sometimes I'll set it with a layer of MUFE Duo Mat powder for extra longevity. I will definitely repurchase this despite its awful packaging.

Available in: light/medium, medium/deep, deep/dark

face candy grade: A+

Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream ($12.99, right, fatter tube) - A thick cream that renews radiance, brightens, evens, hydrates, and protects with SPF 15. It boasts a combination of hyaluronic acid, lipidure microspheres and glycerin for moisture and softness that lasts for 24 hours. I checked and they both contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin, (I don't know what lipidure microspheres are so who knows about that) in case you are wondering. I also don't know why this one is only SPF 15 instead of 20.

Available in: fair, light/medium, medium/deep and deep

***Keep your eye out for Garnier coupons in the paper and in magazines. I had a Garnier $1 OFF coupon, a CVS $2 OFF any $12 skincare item, plus a CVS $5 extrabucks so I got it for about $5.
