Info on BB Creams hereI found a little sample of the Garnier BB Cream in a magazine and I wanted to see what it was about.
Unfortunately, quite a disappointment.

It also claims "1 application, 5 results" - Renew, Brighten, Even, Hydrate and Protect
I was not impressed at it by all. By no means is this a BB Cream. I think this is one of the products that just gets the title of "BB Cream" smacked on it because it's new and hyped up in the US. I don't even think it's much of a tinted moisturizer.
The light/medium shade matched my skin quite well, so it can be used by those with pale skin without trouble. It has a really creamy texture but very little pigmentation. In fact, I didn't have any coverage on my face that I could see, except for helping to conceal redness.
It is very hydrating and feels nice on the skin, and has SPF 15 which is better than nothing.
This might be nice for some people as a primer, but not for me
