GARNIER BB CREAM SKIN RENEW MIRACLE SKIN PERFECTOR, $13; garnier.com

WHY WE LOVE IT: This lightweight multitasking cream hydrates, imparts a subtle glow, and protects skin from damaging UV rays in a single step—at an affordable price!

WHAT THE JURY SAYS:
"The balance between hydration and makeup is genius."

"I'm always on the hunt for a product that does everything—sort of like a 'lazy girl's special' cream. The not-too-thick texture is just right for flawlessly melting into skin."

"This light and easy product is one to never be without. After applying this second-skin-in-a-tube, you'll look in the mirror and still see your face—only with a better complexion."
