Did you know that UV Rays, stress, lack of sleep and pollution can take a toll on your skin causing issues such as dryness, dullness, signs of fatigue and even wrinkles to become more noticeable? My job as a Tourist Guide requires me to be outdoors a lot and at the same time, look well put together. So I need a product that can give me protection against the harmful UV rays, a clean coverage for skin’s imperfections and a fast easy application without the hassle of applying too many products.
Beauty Balms also known as BB Creams are daily moisturisers and UV protectors with coverage built right in to deliver multiple benefits in just one product! They were first developed in Germany by a dermatologist who wanted a single cream that would protect the skin and provide coverage after laser treatments. The all-in-one formulation became a sensation in South Korea because it shortens the regimen and that was how the news about BB Creams spread throughout Asia. Here’s what The Garnier SkinActive BB Cream 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector can do for you.
- Controls shine.
- Minimize pores.
- Evens skin tone.
- Hydrates skin.
- Protects against sun damage.
Apply the cream all over your face just as you would your moisturiser right after your serum before you leave the house. Just a small amount (like the picture above) will be enough for a full face coverage. I apply and blend the product on my face with my fingers.
This oil-free formula with Mineral Perlite, Antioxidant Wild Berry and tinted mineral pigments is specifically designed for oily to combo skin to give five skin-perfecting benefits: controls shine, minimizes pores, evens skin tone, hydrates and helps prevent sun burn. Now it’s quick and easy to get shine-free, more even-toned complexion.

My verdict? Love how the colour blends well with my skin tone without giving me the ‘white cast’ like most BB Creams, hides my flaws like a foundation and hydrates my face like a moisturiser – no need to pile a hundred steps of products on my face anymore! So simple and affordable. Definitely sticking to this product for a long while.
