    I wish I could wear bb cream because I don't really like foundation but they're always too dark for me.

    I got a free sample of the garnier one and it was actually really nice but the light colour is so dark! I wish they made more colours!

    I use this one too and I love it!
    It looks really natural and feels really smooth too

    I tried this and it was bright orange and greasy on me.

    Agreed! Worth every penny and good value for money.

    I absolutely HATE foundation, and begrudge wearing it, so if I do wear it, it's usually Max Factor's colour adapting one; however I saw this Garnier BB cream, tried it, loved it! It doesn't clog and it actually does your skin good.

    I've just bought Max Factor CC cream (Colour correcting) which has almond oil and rosehips, so smells really nice and gives you a little more coverage if necessary.

    Yes, I have quite a tanned/olive complexion (I look a little bit greek), but have to use the light one, so if you are a lot paler, I can imagine it would be difficult because the medium one makes me orange :-O

    Yeah, I'm paler than most lightest shades of foundation so I'm yet to find a BB cream that isn't too dark

    Perhaps you could mix the BB cream with a moisturiser? Might give you a slightly paler shade x
