Review: Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup

By the time this is posted, I am braving the enrollment process for my graduate studies. Yes, I will be pursuing higher education this second semester! This is one goal ticked out of my must-do list and I cannot be more excited! I hope to have the best schedule for my masters. :) 

Oh, if you have read my previous posts, I am also battling with an impacted wisdom tooth which is giving me too much pain. I am not supposed to post anything with my swollen face on it but I don't want this blog to feel neglected so let's make use with what's left, and that is literally the left side of my face! Haha! Seriously,  this post, and maybe the next few ones, will only have photos of the left side of my face. :(

Let's go on with the review? 

Just when I thought I have enough BB creams and I am ready to open my doors to CC creams, a new BB cream made its way to my makeup collection and that is Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup (what a mouthful!). When I was browsing for great US drugstore makeup to try, this BB cream stood out and there it went to my dad-please-get-me-this list.

Want to know my thoughts on this BB cream? Read more!

It claims to do 9 things in one -- primes, moisturizes, minimizes pores, conceals, covers, smooths, mattifies, brightens and protects. Let's see if it stands by its claim.

I LIKE that it ...
  • was sent by my dad. Cheers to free makeup and awesome parents! Thanks, Pops!
  • has SPF 25.
  • gives light to medium buildable coverage.
  • conceals minor blemishes and redness.
  • gives a dewy, healthy-looking finish.
  • doesn't make my skin feel dry.
  • lasts for the whole day with minor touch-ups needed.
  • keeps the oil on my nose at bay for a good 5 hours.
  • has a thick, creamy, easy-to-blend consistency.
  • doesn't feel heavy on the skin.
  • does not give my any skin-related issues.

I DON'T LIKE that ...
  • the shade medium is a tad dark for me. 
  • it has a light 'makeup' scent.
  • it only has 3 shades to choose from - light, medium and dark.
  • it is only available locally through online shops. -- The Vanity Zone has this for only Php399.00.

Will I repurchase?

The shade medium is a bit dark for me so I set with a powder, that suits my skintone, to make it work.

Here are the before and after shots. Notice the blemishes I have on my cheeks and the redness going on on my nose area. A layer of Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup was able to slightly cover it. I am good with this coverage but for times I want them to be completely hidden, I use a concealer.

I must admit, Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup performs way more than my expectation. I love how it delivers to its claim and more! And yes, I will be asking my dad to get me the lighter shade soon! Haha! :)
