Bzzagent Review: Garnier Miracle Skin Oil Free BB Cream

I have to say that I tried the first version of Garnier's BB cream and while I loved the way is covered I broke out almost immediately. I was now especially looking forward to trying the latest oil free version.

It is supposed to be minimize pores and shine, and give a smooth flawless finish.

My experience:

See below for package received and med-tan shade. It matched my skin a bit too rich but the redness seemed to blend out if I didn't apply too much.

For $12.99 you sure receive ALOT of product. If you love it, you will appreciate this.
The tube is easy to use, but because the product pours out so quickly it is easy to waste and make a mess. You don't need much for your face. A little goes a long way but just the slightest squeeze on the bottle will give you a huge dollop. So be careful with this. It can get messy.

See the 3rd photo below for how messy the tube got after 2nd opening.

I noticed much improvement with the unevenness in my face. It did great in that aspect. It covered spots fairly well. However, it did not make any dramatic difference to my pores. They are plain as day. A person with good to fairly good uneven skin will enjoy this. If you have large pores and a lot of acne, you will still need additional products to cover these problem areas, such as a pore primer and/or concealer. I have not noticed the product causing specific breakouts. It lasts all day and eliminated shine for me.

See last 4 photos for these details:
Chin before: spotty and uneven skin tone
Chin after: improvement
Cheek before: big pores and uneven skin tone
Cheek after: big pores but even skin tone

Because I prefer more coverage I have to rate this: B+

I love trying out new products & bzzagent always gives me the opportunity. 
I received all items free as a bzzagent and this is my honest opinion! I hope it helps.
