So today I decided to review Rimmel's BB Cream. Summer is coming up and I wanted to a find a lighter alternative with sunscreen it because I work at an outdoor pool and foundation can get to heavy in the heat. I've hear good things about BB creams and when I saw that Rimmel (we all know my love for Rimmel) had one, I wanted to try it!
It comes in a lotion looking bottle and in three shades, light, medium and medium/dark and I got the medium. Personally I think it should come in more colors because it's not fair to dark skin tones that they don't have anything darker than medium/dark. It is nine in one and is suppose to prime, moisturize, minimizes pores, conceal, cover, smooth, mattify, brighten and help protect all at one time.Let me start by saying it might do like two of the nine and I'm extremely disappointed in this product.
This BB cream is extremely thick. I feel like I'm putting on SPF 90 sunscreen on my face. It is hard to spread out evenly and tends to cake. After about 5 minutes of spreading it, I managed to get it to look somewhat even and then I noticed that it make parts of my skin look orangey. I had a few dry spots from my acne cream ( I had a bad break out) and instead of covering those it highlighted them. Also Jersey is an extremely humid state and the moment I stepped outside I felt it basically become sticky and start running. After that I had enough I was not going to be wearing a BB cream that made me feel sticky at an outdoor pool all summer. I went to take it off and now because it was sticky, it took me about 10 minutes, 2 make up remover towelettes and a nice face wash. It doesn't even take me that long to remove a full face of going out make up.
I've tried it one more time since and got basically the same results. It wasn't as humid that day so it didn't get sticky however I noticed at after a few hours it got flakey and really dry. I would not repurchase this product again, honestly I am not going to finish the reminder of this product. I'm really upset I didn't like it because it is Rimmel and Rimmel doesn't normally disappoint me.
Have you guys tried any BB creams? Any you would recommend?
