I have been receiving beauty boxes on and off for the last eighteen months or so, and even though the majority of the time I have loved the products that have been inside I have never actually gone out and repurchased any of them. That is, until now. Inside my October Glossybox, which I have written a full post on here, I was given a mini Rimmel London BB Cream in Light. I was really impressed and so I went and a bought a full size one!
When I'm at work I tend to try and wear something quite light on my skin rather than foundation and so I often opt for a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser. I decided to give this a whirl since I had never tried it before and I am so glad I did! It is so light on the skin and I find I hardly need any product to cover my whole face. It provides a great even coverage hiding most blemishes and so I only need to apply a very small amount of concealer to provide a pretty flawless complexion. I used it for about a week and was convinced and so I went to Superdrug and bought a full size one!
Rimmel sells it as a "9 in 1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup" claiming that it "Minimises the appearance of pores, mattifies and controls shine all day. Smoothes and soothes skin. Conceals dark circles and helps prevent blemishes." Quite often I like to make my own judgements on products but I really feel like Rimmel have hit the nail on the head with this description. I really find this product so hydrating yet I don't need to re-apply powder half way through the day as shine really is kept at bay. I feel like my skin has actually improved since wearing this every day and my skin feels really flawless even when I'm not wearing it. I have to say I am so impressed and I think this will be a staple skin product for me for quite a while.
What are your thoughts of Rimmel's Matte BB Cream? What do you use as an everyday base?
