Garnier Original BB Cream vs NEW Oil Free Shine Control BB Cream
I have had the original Garnier BB cream for several months now, and although I do not see it as a standard BB cream, it works well as a tinted moisturizer. It has a very strong fragrance though and is definitely very creamy.
Garnier has released a new BB cream that is oil-free and supposed to control shine. I wasn’t a huge fan of the original but I wanted to compare the two to see if they actually differed at all with their formulas.
To my surprise, the Oil-Free version is COMPLETELY different than the original. The consistency is much lighter and more of a liquid but provides just as much coverage if not a little more. I have Light/Medium in each and you can see in the photos that even the color differs. The oil free version is slightly lighter. I haven’t had a chance to test the lasting power of the oil free one, but I definitely like it more than the original. Although it is more ‘watery’ it blends in very well and provides better coverage than the original. It also seems to have a little less fragrance.
If you’re interested in one of these I’d definitely suggest the oil-free version.
