I picked up the new Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfecter in the new formulation for Combo/Oily skin on the recommendation of Jodi from Goo Roo Beauty. I have been trialing it and the verdict is - I completely love it!
Now I have tried the original formula and I thought that it was a bit too oily in consistency for my liking. It also did not give as much coverage as this new version. However - my Mum uses the original and she seems to really like it, and we have quite similar skin, so this is just my opinion :)
One of the best attributes about this BB Cream is that even though it feels very light on your skin, it has a medium coverage. I think overall it gives a matte finish however it's not the mattest of mattes. It lasts a full 8 hours on my skin with no noticeable fading.

As you can probably see in the first image, my main skin problems are redness, dark circles and large pores. This product definitely minimized the look of my pores and covered my redness. It wasn't powerful enough to cover my dark circles but that's not something I expected anyway :)
As you can see I am having a small break out on the side of my face. The BB Cream covered the spots but not completely. I think if you have bad blemishes/acne, this is not going to provide you with the coverage you need.
I picked this up for $9 at Coles. Bargain of the century :) I have a new daily foundation!
Have you tried this new version vs the old one? What are your thoughts?
