. .Hello x
Im here to review my latest beauty must have at the minute: the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream.
What is a BB cream? (in my experience)
Through my own experience and definition of a BB or Beauty Balm: a lightweight product, that allows skin to breath, with a more watery consistency than an average foundation - which is a plus as a little goes a long way!!
So a few weeks back I came to the conclusion that my day time make-up was seeming to appear 'too much' for day. As a result I decided to research BB creams and CC creams as well as face tanners. After testing out a few on the inside of my wrist **, I decided that maybe the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream would be worth a go, especially as it has a built in SPF 15.
The product offers to minimise appearance of pores, even skin tone, control shine all day, offer smoothness, soothe sensitive skin, conceal dark circles, help prevent blemishes and provides all day coverage.
In my opinion I feel the product does a lot of what it says on the tin. I apply the product at 8.30am each morning and usually remove the product around 9 or 10 pm, which is over 12 hours wear. At this point there isn't much left on my skin but I would agree that it last through-out the day as it covers my sensitive rosy cheeks all day and helps to combat my oily t-zone !
Which colour for me? There are only two colours to choose from : Light and Medium. I chose light as I have a more pale complexion.
TIP apply product to the inside of your wrist and blend in, the colour that fades best into your skin is the correct colour for you.
Application - Use fingertip to dot onto the face (only taking a small amount) and blend in using a foundation brush
Price range £6.99 - At local Medicare, Boots and Superdrug
