So lately I have been using the Rimmel London BB Radiance cream Beaty Balm a lot. During the summer I like to opt for something light like a BB cream rather than a foundation because it is so much lighter and doesn't get greasy as quick. Because I have used this so many times, I feel confident enough for a review!
The BB cream promises to do 9 things: priming, smoothing, concealing, helping minimise the appearance of pores, providing natural looking coverage, moisturising for 24 hours, awakening tired skin, brightning the skin with vitamin C complex and lastly it promises to give a radiant finish and it has a spf of 20.
First of all I really like the colour. Now this is very different for everyone but the colour ''light'' matches my skin perfectly. It doesn't have this weird orange colour and looks very natural, which I really like.
Next I like the consistency in overall. It gets on the skin very smoothly and rarely looks cakey or weird. I had one time however, when my skin was pretty dry that the cream didn't apply very smoothly. You could see I had it on and it just wasn't a pretty sight. So do make sure you don't have a very dry skin!
What I was really impressed with was the coverage from the sun. I put one coat of BB cream on in the morning and went wakeboarding later that day. It was very Sunny without clouds and when I removed my make-up there was no redness whatsoever. I have a light skin, so this was really awesome.
Generally, I really like the product. The packaging is nice and the formula is very neat. I would recommend this to anyone that isn't yet ready for a full face of make-up, yet wants a good coverage or the people like me who don't want an entire layer of foundation during the hot days of summer.
Take care loves!
