I was very excited when I heard that Rimmel had released their very own version of a BB cream earlier this year so I could not wait to try it. I really love the idea behind this product and the fact that it contains a higher SPF than all other BB creams I have tried but I think that this product needs a bit of improvement.
The product comes in a super cute tube which is a convenient size to take with you on the go, it is also very affordable like other Rimmel products so that is always a huge plus (it retails at $12.95 at my local Priceline).
I found that this product gave fantastic coverage, almost like a foundation! Unlike some of my friends, I didn't notice it go orange during the day. The 'medium' shade suited my skin tone perfectly when I was wearing a tan. I found that the product didn't make me break out nor did it make my skin oilier than usual, but it did start to melt from my nose after a long day at the office which is not unusual for me.
The thing that I dislike about this product is the fact that it is very thick in consistency and seems to dry pretty much instantly on skin contact. As a result this product is incredibly hard to blend and it makes you appear as if you have uneven skin tone since you can't blend it properly.
I noticed that if mixed a bit of moisturizer with the BB cream then I would get a consistency that I could work with easier and blend evenly onto the skin.
Overall I think that this product has the potential to be great if it had some improvements made to the formula. I love the fact that Rimmel have included a decent SPF sunscreen in their BB Cream and offers lots of extras that I have not seen in many other BB Creams on the market.
Have you tried the Rimmel BB cream? What did you think?
