It’s no secret that last year’s launch of Garnier Miracle Skin Daily All-in-One BB cream was my favourite BB and I wore it all summer long, it didn’t at the time have very much competition. Now, with the world and its wife producing a BB this year, it does. However, there are a couple of new BB launches from Garnier in August, one for Sensitive Skin (to reduce redness) and one Anti-Ageing (with skin firming ingredients), today’s news is that Garnier are launching an Oil Free version of Miracle Skin Perfector for combination and oily skin types in June.
So how does the Oil-Free version compare to the original? Garnier Miracle Skin Daily All-in-One BBCream Oil Free is much more fluid in consistency for a start. It is actively anti-shine whereas the original one definitely gives a sheen to the skin. It contains Perlite to keep skin matte for longer.

The photos of the original were taken last summer when my skin was much browner..the below swatches show how much I need a holiday!
The new Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oil Free will cost £9.99.

This actually rather excites me, as lame as that may sound. I loved the Garnier BB Cream…just not for MY skin type/color. But now that they’re launching it oil free…oh dear, I might have to have it. Do you reckon the Light in the Oil Free version is lighter in color than the original version? (I hope that made sense) The original one is just a leeeeetle too orange for me. xx
I’ll definitely be trying this out as the original was too shimmery for my skin.
Cant use any bb cream or foundations,too dry skin resultig in flaky and dry pactchy face.i only use body shop vit C cream.
I’m going to give the anti-ageing one a try when it comes out.
I’ve never understood why you love the Garnier BB cream so much, it left me with a greasy face, ugh, hated it so much, got rid of it. Maybe this oil free version will be better, but I definitely won’t buy a full size one until I’ve thoroughly tried it out.
Anitacska – I really like a dewy finish with coverage and hate anything matte which seems to just add about ten years to my skin! I think it just depends upon your personal preference, and the fact that I like coverage to be warming rather than exact skintone.. my pallid face doesn’t need more palour it needs some life! I know several people felt it was too dewy or shimmery but it is perfect for me. Am weaning myself off so I can try other products – this time last year there weren’t nearly so many to choose from and now we are spoilt for BB choice.
I like the finish you get with this BB cream, this is my fav at the moment
Is this new BB cream the same as the original one? I mean the colours! I used the light version of the original BB cream but it is too dark for me now. I want the oil free version but only if it is a bit lighter than the other one. Could you compare them? THANK YOU! 🙂
I love the new oil free version. It really does wonders for me. I too found the other one too – difficult to describe, kind of gooey! but as the very lovely BBB says, it depends totally on your skin and preference.
I’m definitely going to try this, I enjoyed the original although it was a bit greasy. I recently paid 38$ at swphora for an oil free bb cream and it went way too fast . I hope this garnier one holds up to its exPensive competition!
Where can I purchase the garnier oil free bb cream?
I absolutely love the perfect look of my skin when wearing Garnier BB cream. My only problem is that I breakout after using it. My skin is annoyingly sensitive. Any suggestions?
The oil free BB cream actually does have oil, don’t be fooled because I put the oil free BB cream on paper and I saw the oil come out on the paper.
