Rimmel BB Cream | Medium

I've found that me and BB cream have a really off relationship. I've tried so many samples of the stuff, all different brands and I just can't get to love it at all. Majority of the BB cream's I've had samples of have been the wrong shade, I found them to be very greasy, not a great flawless coverage which is what I personally like to be left with after applying anything to my face. Had rather just apply a decent moisturiser and then my usual wake me up foundation - I find results this way so much better.

I've had this Rimmel BB Cream for a while now and I find it's the best one I've used so far. It's got nine benefits in one tube - primes, moisturises, minimises pores, conceals, covers, smooths, mattifies, brightens and helps protect. I found this to be more drying to the face, with a matte finish rather then a greasy one. It didn't cling in all the wrong places, but it's hardly a foundation type feel either. I find this to be a little heavier on the skin rather then the feather light foundation feel I'm use too. But it's not a problem. The shade is too dark for my skin, so I've only touched this twice really, one day I wore it all day and I did this swatch on my wrist above when I got it. However I once read a post on someone's blog about her using this shade along side, match perfect foundation which I'm dying to try a sample of because I really don't want to pay for a full bottle and find it doesn't work for me. I used the lightest shade of wake me up and it's still a little to dark for my skin but only ever so slightly. Anyways the BB cream really adds a lovely tint along side the match perfect foundation, giving a lovely glow and a flawless finish.

What are your thoughts on BB cream?
