I have found putting two applications on works alot better than one and im happy to say it hasn't given me spots even with me putting my usual foundatin etc on top of the cream. The problem i have with it is i really don't think its worth the £9.99 price tag!
So i asked myself........ Can i make my own BB cream? and the answer is yes!!
So here is the litle concoction i made-
Please note i measured it in blobs lol sorry i can't be more accurate but it will depend on the consistency you want and the products you use.
I used :
- an empty clean pot
- a blob of mac studio fluid fix foundation (any full coverage foundation would work)- This is for coverage
- a blob of Nivea sun cream 50+ - for its anti ageing properties and protection
- and finally a blob of Nivea radiance moisturiser - this gives your mixture a glowy sheen
- Mix and there you have it!
|It works for me you can see the glow on the back of my hand|
I personally think this is just as good as the BB cream and you can refill your little tub as and when you need more and at a much lower cost it also means that you can get your exact shade as i know the Garnier BB cream only offers light and medium.
