Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector

Today marks a new chapter for BB Creams.

The UK sees its very first BB Cream available within drugstores today. A date to be remembered. This means, if my calculations are right, we should see BB Creams on our side of the pond sometime in December.

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector is the first BB Cream available in a drugstore within the UK (not sure if this release extends to the rest of Europe).

Take a look!

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector is available in two shade selections and promises a formula rich in mineral pigments and vitamin C.

It’s an ickle low in the SPF area (SPF 15) compared to Asian BB Creams but just the idea that it can be purchased at your local Superdrug is brilliance on a stick as far as I’m concerned.

I find it a very interesting event that we are seeing BB Creams from higher end brands where as the UK is seeing them from drugstore brands…!

I look forward to reviewing Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector for you shortly and hope to see it in the US very soon.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    This is super duper exciting!!!! I would love to be able to get a good quality BB cream at a drugstore.

    Btw, I was browsing on Sephora today and Clinique has a BB cream listed on Sephora’s site but it’s not available for sale yet.

      SO funny you mentioned it Court was about to post about it RIGHT now hahaha!

    I hope that when this (and any other BB brand) comes to the states, that there are different skin tones offered. It sucks seeing great products, but never finding a match in skin b/c everything is too light πŸ™

      Do u see some missha bbcreams? their n31 is for more dark tone, and fit well in latin skin… I know because iΒ΄m a brazillian, and Missha is popular here, between people that know BBcream…

  • Jessica

    YUS! I cant wait to be able to see BB creams in my local chemist! EEEEP! Must get to Boots ASAP!

  • Noelle

    I can’t wait to go to the UK next month. I’m hoping to pick up some bb creams that I would never be able to find in the U.S. =) I’m definitely going to be looking at the Garnier one. Thanks Muse!

    • the Muse

      hey noelle good luck not sure how many bb creams you’re going to find in the UK though πŸ™ but at least you can try this one yay! my pleasure!

  • CK

    i’m so excited, i can’t contain myself!!
    i guess now i’ll wait for reviews on this and on the clinique one before i decide which one to buy :]

    Hi Muse πŸ™‚

    I bought this today in my local Superdrug, and have to say I am very dissapointed :'(

    As a very pale girl, BB Creams have always been great for me, (Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream #21 and #13 are brilliant colours!) but the ‘light’ colour was far too dark for me and it didn’t settle to my own skin tone! D: The SPF is only 15, it doesn’t cover red areas very well and it is rather thick in consistency :/ The smell is also VERY floral (like an old lady my sister says!)

    It was a good try, but I don’t think it matches up to the high standard of asian BB Creams *so dissapointed* πŸ™

    I’ve bought this bb cream today in my drugstore at Paris. I will try it tomorrow. It costs 10,95Euros here.

    Just bought this today and was so excited about it when i saw it ! I had to try t on when i got home , and i have to admit , its pretty good πŸ™‚
    its got a bit of a sparkle which makes your skin look so radiant !:D
    It’s light so but not liquidy or anything , its not as good as other BB creams i’ve used before , but at least i can get it in boots now rather then ordering it online or getting it in Hong kong πŸ™‚
    love it though πŸ˜€

    this is available in Australia now at the introductory price of $10.99 [normal price will be $13.99] 2 colours- light & medium. will go test it out in store later & see how i go; for 50ml that’s not bad at all considering everything is usually so inflated here

    I bought some last week and love it. I have sensitive skin and was a bit worried I’d react to it but my skin loves it. It’s light, moisturising and gives perfect coverage. It also smells gorgeous. Hurrah!

  • Jenny Nguyen

    I saw it yesterday (I live in Norway, so it has probably launched in most places in Europe already). Shade #1 was too light for me while shade #2 was too dark for me.
    I’m disappointed, plus the coverage is pretty poor and I feel it’s a bit sticky and not so fan of the smell either. It’s just lacking as a typical BB cream, and the SPF is pretty poor compared to other Asian ones. i think American companies should stay away making BB cream :/
