Rimmel London BB Cream Beauty balm 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup in Medium.

Hey guys!
If you all know me from before, I was a BB Cream addict! I used to scour blog sales and stay up late at night hopping from one website to another looking for the best BB cream and where to get them at the best prices. And then, I mellowed down to simply a powder foundation with a concealer under because my BB Creams were too drying for me when I moved back to the U.S. Now that BB Cream has exploded into the American scene, I thought I'd get on the boat (a little late) and try one of the newest ones to come out. I've always loved Rimmel and so I didn't hesitate to try this out!

What it is:
Rimmel's 1st 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup 9 in 1 results: Primes, moisturises, minimizes pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens, and helps protect. Lightweight, ultra comfortable formula instantly gives a flawless, 100% natural finish. SPF 25
 Product description taken from here.

What I like:
  • Not at all drying nor makes my face oily, but definitely has a somewhat matte finish.
  • Evens out my skin.
  • Feels and looks light on.
  • Does make my pores less visible.
  • Makes my skin look, indeed, brighter.
  • Look natural and not cakey at all.
  • Lasts all day.
  • Easy to blend and a little goes a long way!
  • SPF 25!
  • Comes in a squeeze tube that isn't too big and hard to control.

Swatches: Rimmel London BB Cream Beauty balm 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup in Medium.

What I don't like:
  • Only medium coverage.
  • Doesn't promise or causes anything sensational like Asian BB Creams do.
  • Only comes in Light, Medium, and a Dark shade. 
  • Since it is working for my combination skin here in the U.S., I'm a little worried it wouldn't work as well in humid countries (i.e. Philippines) where my skin becomes the oily type.

Final Thoughts:
I love this product and have been using this everyday ever since I purchased it! Yes, it lacks in coverage but how it evens out my skin tone and hides my pores are enough to make me go out and show people my face! I don't have to worry about it accentuating my dry patches, like Asian BB Creams do to me here in the U.S. Nor do I have to worry about it turning me into an oily mess, like most tinted moisturizers. I was honestly afraid of this failing on me due to all the negative reviews on all other non-Asian BB Creams that came out of the market, but I'm glad I gave this a chance! With its 9 promises, this comes through with at least 7 of it (somewhat lacking in the concealing & covering area)! Not bad for this drugstore find! The Rimmel BB Cream definite must-have for me!

My Face...
All pictures were taken with natural sunlight and are unedited (except for the background, of course)!
My bare face.
Because I no longer have flawless skin :'(

With one layer of the Rimmel BB Cream.
You can still see the my major acne scars.
But redness and pores are gone!

The Final Look!
 Ready to go to school!
Excuse the wonky hair... I woke up to this and decided to just go with it! :D
But yeah, you can still see some scars even after setting it with powder.

This is a good everyday face for me.
Not too made up for school, for sure.
Thanks for reading!
