   The Garnier BB Cream comes in a handy tube with a nozzle like opening. The cream is thinner compared to most BB creams in the market and has a mild fragrance. It is easy to apply and blends well into the skin. The cream provides an instant and natural glow to the skin, hiding light blemishes and fine lines and making it appear more even and clearer. It does not cause drying of the skin or make it appear chalky. No additional sunscreen is required as it contain SPF 24. I have a combination skin type whom it tends to make it oily earlier than normal and would suit better for people with dry skin. It's biggest limitation is the fact that it is available in just a single shade which suits people with a wheatish complexion only.
