So the Garnier BB Cream and Blur promises to smooth skin texture, blur wrinkles and imprefections, leave a matte velvet finish, moisturise and even skin tone, all with a very healthy hit of SPF30. Sounds like the perfect product doesn't it?
Now, a lot of BB Creams are high on coverage, making them sit more on the foundation end of the spectrum, but this version is definitely more on the sheer side, but is still buildable. In terms of texture, it's nice and fluid, and I thought it was going to be thicker with the blurry stuff in it, but it's really lightweight on the skin and dare I say it, less visible on the skin and more natural compared to my beloved Garnier BB cream.

When I first poured some of the BB Cream + Blur onto the back of my hand, I nearly had a nose bleed when I saw how dark it was and this was the light shade! But you can see from the swatches above that it blends out into a similar shade, ever so slightly darker, but less yellow toned than the original BB cream.

So my verdict? If you're after something that's going to give a light coverage, that evens out your complexion, gives a subtle glow to the skin and make you look a bit more alive while pretending your skin is naturally lovely, then this is one to check out. Just don't have a mickey fit when you pour it out onto the back of your hand, it does blend out lighter, but pale girls will need to keep looking.
Now if I was doing a video on this, you know for an actual fact that I'd have to get in the Spice Girls "2 become 1" line complete with hand gestures because in this case, they've combined two great products to make one even better product in my opinion. It'll set you back a very random RRP€15.24 and is in shops now.
Are you intrigued? And are you singing 2 become 1 now?
