BB creams are now working their way through the market offering a skin finish that is light but has that all important flawless finish.
I like to wear a light cream in the day time when I just want exactly that, a light cream. Here is a cream that offers 9 power packed properties that work well in todayâs environment. Speaking with beauty industry experts when BB creams first appeared we assumed they must be only for an oily skin, but they are not.
BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, or beblesh balm (apparently because of a copyright in Korea on the word "blemish"), and in Western markets, beauty balm. So for us beauty balm is what we require. BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sun protection. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.
Rimmelâs BB Cream is creamy so it does not drag across the skin that is due in part to the moisturizing factor added, so more is less, it will help with covering light marks and blemished, but donât use this product as a sole concealer. If you have serious blemishes, treat those with your concealer and then apply Rimmelâs BB Cream lightly over the skin.
You will get good mileage out of this BB Cream for the day, the primer will make sure of that, but you must prepare your skin properly before you use it. In the morning donât forget to clean your skin, a lot of users think that if they are in the shower, that just water on their face is good enough but it is not. Clean your skin with your chosen skin cleanser, before you apply the Rimmel London BB Cream whether that âs in the morning or evening.
There is a lovely mattifing finish with this BB Cream, is not dry looking and has a soft powdered feel and finish. Some oily skins will feel the need to powder over the finish, but try to resist . You may end up changing your initial color choice as an oily skin has the possibility of becoming more orange throughout the day. There are a few possibilities causing any foundation/cream/tint to become darker or turn orange, 1) the skin becomes a more acidic skin, 2) a pink foundation over a yellow undertone skin color, 3)foundation/cream/tint components reacting to the sebum in the skin, 4) oils in the skin or moisturizer can possibly intensify the color of the pigments.
Plus with an SPF 25 and a choice of three skin tones: Light, Medium and Medium/Dark. You canât go past Rimmelâs BB Cream SPF 25 RRP $12.95and available from November 2012 at Kmart, Target, Big W, Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy, Woolworths and selected pharmacies.
