The First US Drugstore BB Cream and More!
I also purchased a pack of Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes because I ran out of my Mandom Cleansing Express Lotion (sebum - for Oily/normal skin). These wipes do a great job at removing face makeup but I don't like the citrus (grapefruit?) scent! It's quite overpowering in my opinion and definitely makes me not want to use this product. I know there is a plain/unscented version of these wipes available in the market today, but I feel bad wasting money on this product. I'm going to use it up as much as I can but the future is dim for these wipes.
On a happier note, I recently went to NJ to visit my sister and stopped by Mitsuwa Japanese Market. I was soooooo happy because I got to eat some yummy food and also buy my FAVE makeup remover, Mandom Cleansing Express Lotion. I should have bought two because they were on SALE...oh well I guess that's another excuse to makeup a spontaneous trip to good ol' Jersey.
This product has light to medium coverage. It gives a dewey look to the skin, but I think the color is hard to match. It has a pink undertone when it dries, which will definitely look off for olive, golden toned complexions.
In comparison to the BB creams I currently own (L'EGERE White Multi BB Cream and L'EGERE Water Drop Shiny Pearl BB Cream) the Garnier BB cream has a thinner, more liquified consistency.
I like that it has SPF 15 but because it doesn't match my skin, I see this purchase as a mistake not to be repeated.
I hope this review helps those of you who are thinking of trying out this product. Thanks for stopping by my blog! =)
