I have the Garnier Oily to combination skin BB cream, and it is awesome! I love it that it doesn't adhere to the flakes that I get from BP, and it gives me really good moisturization, so BP isn't as drying when I use this BB cream. The only problem is that it won't give you as much coverage as foundation, so I would recommend using concealer and finish with a powder. It is also really good at evening out my skin tone. I don't have a super red face anymore! I haven't tried any other BB creams, and this one is the only one I've ever tried, and it works really good.

I tried the regular Garnier BB cream (it's in a smaller tube) and it was way too oily for my acne prone skin. I then tried Olay BB cream but again, too oily.
Agree with the posters above that the oil-free Garnier (for oily and combination skin) is amazing. I've used it for years and am happy with it.

I've tried the BB cream from the brand Andalou Naturals. It can be found at Whole Foods. They also have an Oil Remover cream that works amazingly. The creams are moisturizing, but I wouldn't recommend using them if your skin is even slightly flaky or dry, because they can be a bit tough to spread on. Quality wise, I am definitely pleased. Its a good use of $20.

I tried Maybelline BB cream ( both pink and the blue one with salisylic acid ). Basically no coverage ( or super light coverage haha ), didn't make me break out either. Good moisturizer, though.

I don't use BB creams, I use a CC cream which saves me a lot of time in the morning. Lumene's CC cream is pretty good and doesn't break me out...plus, it doubles as sunscreen.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

I dont know what it is with BB creams but i have tried a bunch, including marcier, garnier, covergirl or is maybellene? they all made me break out oh and arbonne. omg arbonne was the WORST! and the consultants at arbonne think their products are the greatest thing to ever happen to this world so it was practically impossible to return it.

Depending on what you're looking for regarding shades, coverage, and less amount of time blending. I would recommend Asian BBs because they tend to leave out ingredients known to cause breakouts. Plus they are on the heavy coverage side, but lack in shades. The only American BB that is good in my opinion is Bobbi Browns BB cream. But it is hard to blend properly. I have not tried Garniers,Maybelline, Rimmel..
