He my beautiful Dolls,
So I recently bought my first BB cream (took me long enough, right?) and I thought I’d share my experiences with you. I chose the Rimmel London 9-In-1 BB cream in Light, which costs around £6.99 and can be bought from most drugstores or online. However, while I like the product itself I do have some issues with it.
This is what it says on the back of the bottle:
“It’s a skin perfecting super makeup! 9 In 1 results: Primes, Moisturises, Minimises Pores, Conceals, Covers, Smoothes, Mattifies, Brightens and helps Protect“
Sounds great right? Well what they’re basically doing is saying the same thing…with a slightly different word each time… “Primes, minimizes pores, smooths” and “conceals, covers” are all the same thing! Just with slightly different wording.. so technically it is a 3 in one product. (Just saying)
It has a SPF factor, (SPF 25) which I love for day to day wear but loath for photographing (it gives a lovely corpse like look to your face in photos)
It applies beautifully however, and I do like to apply it with the fingers (which is rare for me in makeup.). The coverage isn’t awe inspiring but it is descent I suppose. My issue with this is…it is basically a glorified tinted moisturizer. NOT a BB cream. The Asian Beauty Balms would eat this as a snack. I’m actually quite annoyed with the ‘claims’ of this product..you may as well buy Nivea’s tinted moisturizer because you’d get the same coverage and an SPF factor AND a nicer smell…

Because of all of this I’m going to have to give it a low rating. I will be interested to try some more BB Creams soon though!
