REVIEW Rimmel BB Radiance Cream

It's not often that I write a 'disappointing' review on a product, but after trying this, I felt like it was about time. I can't always just write about products I love, because I want to share with you all my honest opinion and so here it is...

Recently, I have been using BB creams more than usual, and I've found myself trying out lots of different ones. I picked up the Rimmel Radiance BB Cream to try as a drugstore option. 

When I first applied the cream onto my skin it actually felt quite good and the colour match (very light) was really good, which is impressive for a drugstore product. But I found that after the cream had settled into my skin and had been on for a couple of hours or so it started to cling to dry patches and just generally look a bit worn out on my skin. I tried applying powder, but that just made things worse. The colour definitely turned a different shade after a few hours and I just felt like the product slid around my face and moved in all sorts of weird places. I really just wanted to take it off and put something else on my skin as it just didn't look very nice. It looked like I had very patchy, wrong coloured foundation on my face (which trust me, is never a good look).

I had really high expectations for this BB cream, but unfortunately it just didn't work for me and I definitely won't be using this product again. 

Have you tried the Rimmel Radiance BB cream? If so, what are your thoughts?

Lots of love x

  2. I am sorry to hear this product didn't work out for you! I have used other Rimmel BB creams as well and don't find them that amazing x :)


  3. So sorry to hear this product dissapointed you! I just got Rimmel's foundation and i'm loving it so far! I've noticed you've been using a looot of BB creams lately and not so much foundation)))


  4. I had the exact same issue when i bought this BB Cream, i expected such high results seeming it's branded with the same line of the wake me up foundation and concealer which are perfect!! i don't know what happened when rimmel made this product but i believe it has not worked out for many people.

  5. Hi, this is a little bit of a strange question but are you doing the christmas countdown this year. I loved it last year!
