Rimmel London – BB Cream Matte Reviews

Hello Ladies, Good to see you all, and my week was done, by shopping for new skincare and beauty products for my face. This time, It was all about switching over to a new BB Cream, and I must say, that am quite thrilled with the New BB Cream in a Matte finish by the international brand Rimmel London. Their products are known for giving the skin a smooth and flawless finish, making you look younger, and most importantly, the products work good on all types of skin. So today, I am going to introduce you all to my personal favourite BB Cream, which unlike the others does not give a cakey appearance and it evenly smooth-ens out your face and gives you 100% coverage.

So Lets get started…..

Product Description

  • 9-IN-1 skin perfecting Super Makeup
  • Comes with additional SPF 15
  • Skin tone – Medium
  • Matte finish for oily skin
  • 100 % coverage for acne and dark spots

Skin Synopsis

The BB Cream is formulated for those suffering from excess oil secretion on face. It keeps the skin – oil free and gives a matte look to the face. Moreover, the cream deeply sets in, thus reducing fine wrinkles and pores with regular use. It also comes with SPF 15, acting as a sunscreen and thus, its plays dual roles. It conceals, protects, and evens out the skin tone for a satin dewy look.

Directions for usage

  • Wash your face, with your regular cleanser, and pat dry.
  • I personally like to wait for a minute or two and rub ice cubes on my face to tone up my skin and close the open pores.
  • Wipe off dry and take a small pump, and using your fingertips, apply dots all over the face.
  • Concentrate on the chin, forehead, and jawline, and not to forget the under eye and near the lips.
  • Rub using your fingertips, or use a sponge to dab the BB Cream to conceal dark spots.
  • Wait for about 10-15 minutes, to allow the BB Cream to finely set on the face, before going ahead with your makeup.

My experience with Rimmel London – BB Cream Matte

Rimmel BB Creams are something that works like a charm for me, and being a wheatish skin type, the medium range suits perfectly fine, giving my face a smooth satin finish. I skip the primer and foundation all together, and only use my BB Cream, which makes my face oil free, a shade lighter and viola – a porcelain skin with zero pores, what more do I want? Am super excited and happy, as I get parlour results in just about 10 minutes, all from the comfort of home. It is worth every penny and saves time and a quick fix for dark spots.
