I love this BB cream, it is my go-to for an everyday quick and easy "natural" looking skin.... I liked it so much that I even wore it for my wedding! Like others have mentioned as a pale person it's nearly impossible to find drugstore products but are actually light enough, this one isn't quite there but it is much closer than I've ever come. So I always mix Manic Panic Virgin white foundation in with it. But it doesn't have that grotesque orange tone that a lot of the lightest options do in drugstore makeup to start with so adding the white mixer just perfects it! This evens out my skin tone and gives me a subtle glow, I don't usually set it with powder but I definitely have when I want to make sure I don't look overly shiny. I'm impressed with how effortless, beautiful and light it looks and feels.... you really can't tell you're wearing makeup on your skin, it just looks like you have especially beautiful skin. At least that's my experience, but I have very well-behaved problem-free combo (oily t zone/normal everywhere else) skin without any major issues like acne, age lines, texture ect.... if you do experience those issues I don't think this will make them go away or hide them. And personally I always wear SPF 50 under this (and any foundation) because generally just the sunscreen in any foundation or BB cream is not going to be enough for real sun protection and anti-aging. The only thing I don't like is the nozzle on the bottle, it kind of leaks out on its own anytime the cap is off and wastes product and can be messy. And while they have more shades than usual I think they could expand the shade range to include an even paler shade and some more options for darker skin.

Pros: +it's very cheap +looks very natural and skin-like +provides almost medium coverage +isn't wet or greasy dewy or shimmery but gives my cheeks a hint of glow +feels moisturizing without being thick,heavy or oily +doesn't break me out +looks nice even if I apply it with fingers on bare skin (but looks better if I apply it with damp sponge on moisturized skin) +it's light shade isn't a perfect match for me but doesn't look orange,brown,red or grey like some other BB creams +it comes in a very travel-friendly tube with a thin nozzle +it has a sheer,runny but not watery texture which is very easy to blend +although it comes in only 4 shades(3 in my country) it seems to look decent on a large variety of skin colors and tones from N15 (shade:very light)to around NC45(shade:Medium-Dark) +it doesn't look patchy or cakey at the end of the day +doesn't oxidize on me +doesn't sink in pores Cons: -it's only SPF15 which is low for a BB cream -there's no shade for very deep skin colors -it's strongly perfumed(though I like it's scent) The one I'm reviewing is Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream with SPF 15, it also has a blue cap but there's no "Skin Perfecting Super Makeup" written on it (I uploaded a pic) This is one of the cheapest BB creams in my country.I bought it for 5 USD.there's also a matte one (with purple cap), and a radiant one(with orange cap) but I haven't tried them yet In my country this is available in 3 shades: Light,Medium and Medium-Dark .there's no Very Light one here which is a pity as I guess that one could be a great match for my fair skin Right now I have it in shade "Light"..it's truely light,not fair,something around NC20 I guess,it's a tiny bit too dark for me(I'm C1 in Mac Face and Body, Fair in It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better,51 in Bourjois Healthy Mix, Soft Ivory in WetnWild Photofocus) but it doesn't look bad.it doesn't make me look orange,red or brown and doesn't have a greyish undertone either. It has a runny liquid-like texture which surprised me as I'm used to more creamy BB creams but this one also manages to be very moisturizing without being heavy or greasy..I usually don't put on any face tinted bases without using moisturizer first but this one blends well and sits well on my dry skin even without putting on a moisturizer first(however it looks even better if I put on a light moisturizer) It has nine claims written on the back of it's tube and honestly I believe it really does what it claims to do more or less: ✔Hydrates up to 24 hours It really is hydrating,not for 24 hours still good enough to feel moisturizing on my dry skin ✔Primes It sits well on my skin and lasts a reasonable time without using any primer ✔Smoothes It definitely smoothes my skin ✔Conceals and covers for an even skin tone it evens out my skin,covers the redness on my cheeks and gives me light to low-medium coverage which is perfect for a BB cream in my book (I have to use concealer on my dark cycles) ✔Minimizes the appearance of pores it doesn't sink in pores,isn't able to fully cover them either but fills in them a bit and really does a nice job in minimizing the appearance of pores as it claims ✔Helps protect from UV it really helps to protect against UV rays (well,SPF 15 is a week UV protection but still);I wish it was SPF 30 though ✔Brightens I don't feel any brightening effect (maybe I would if I had it in a lighter shade), but it gives my skin a gorgeous glow without being greasy or shimmery ✔Mattifies Right now I have normal to slightly oily skin in my T-Zone and normal to dry skin else where.it seems to have a bit of oil control as my nose and forehead don't look oily as fast as usual when I wear this one but I don't think it's mattifying ability would be enough if you have really oily skin This one doesn't have a matte finish either.if you're into a more mattifying BB cream with a matte finish I guess you'd better go with the one with purple cap not the blue or orange one ✔Provides all day long comfort on skin definitely yes,it doesn't feel heavy and oily,or dry and tight,doesn't feel itchy,doesn't irritate my skin or break it out I expect a BB cream to do the jobs of a moisturizer,a foundation and a sunscreen,this one does a decent job in all the fields,of course not as well as each of these products alone but is enough for a pick me up,quick makeup to run errands.It looks nice on my skin no matter I blend it with fingers or a damp beauty sponge.looks very natural and skin-like;doesn't look cakey,doesn't exacerbate the dry patches,doesn't oxidize at least on my skin and doesn't look patchy and blotchy as the day goes on; it's not dewy,wet or greasy like some other BB creams,gives me a skin like finish with a subtle glow on my cheeks and a low moderate coverage which I love I also like it's packaging.it's tube is tiny(it still contains 30 mils of product) and very travel friendly.it's perfumed so if you can't get along with perfumed makeup I highly recommend you to test it first.I'm ok with that as it doesn't irritate my skin and it smells lovely Before this,Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream and The Body Shop BB Cream were the only BB creams I had tried and I really liked them both but this one,well,it's even better,this one is more foundation-like still feels and looks comfortable,natural and fuss-free like a BB cream (I have also tried It Cosmetics CC cream which I HATE as it's a cakey,heavy mess; however I liked Bourjois 123 CC cream and Oriflame Even Out CC Cream) Before this one,I received Bobby Brown Moisture Rich Foundation and loved it.this Rimmel BB Cream has somethings in common with that foundation but it seems even better to me as it's much cheaper,widely available,less dewy and looks better on skin..the only thing I'd like to change about Rimmel BB cream is that I wish it had higher SPF and I wish it was available in my exact match,something truely fair with a truely golden undertone I really LOVE this BB Cream and highly recommend you to give it a try

This is the best bb cream out there imo. I'm extremely pale so I love that the lightest shade isn't orange like literally every other bb cream out there. I love the smell too and if I'm looking for a bit more coverage I just add a little bit of the covergirl bb cream in with it since that one has a lot of coverage but is way too dark for me. Also the covergirl one helps a lot with oil control too. But I don't do that all of the time.

I love how lightweight this is. It's minimal coverage but still evens out my skintone. It feels like I'm wearing nothing. And as a pale girl, the very light shade is perfect for me and doesn't make me look orange like some other brands. It's a little liquid-y, but that's okay. It's great for when I'm lazy or pressed for time and don't want to do a full face of makeup. It's also often on sale for $5.99 at Shopper's.

This product applied nicely, however after a few minutes of applying it looks crumbly and almost cakey on the skin. I found it doesn't cover much at all it just feels like a cream with colour to it. Speaking of which, the very light shade is absolutely perfect for anyone with very pale skin who struggles to find something that's the perfect colour match. The wear wasn't great as it did crumble off a bit, overall wouldn't recommend.

FINALLY! As someone with very-very pale skin, I've been trying for ages to find a BB cream that doesn't look orange on me. The "very light" shade is a perfect match for my complexion, without making me look chalky (it still has a nice pinky undertone). Very happy with how light weight this feels on, as I'm someone who doesn't like wearing foundation, but my skin is prone to redness and breakouts. The coverage is better than other more expensive BB creams that I have tried.. I don't even bother putting on concealer underneath (I do however set it with a translucent powder so it lasts all day). It smells nice, almost like a mild sunscreen and doesn't irritate my scent allergies. Only took a lippie off for the package being so small (hey Rimmel, how about releasing a 60-75ml version??), and the poor range of shades.. I would love to recommend this product, but many of my girlfriends have darker complexions. Hoping the brand will step up and become more inclusive to all skin tones.

I really like this BB cream. Having very fair skin makes finding a drug store BB cream or tinted moisturizer difficult, as most of them are too orange, but this one is a perfect match. The coverage is more than I was expecting for a BB cream, being light medium. It blends easily, looks natural and doesn’t look cakey. It does start to separate and break down on my oily t-zone after about 5 hours but it’s not super noticeable because of the natural light finish, so I don’t really mind. This is a nice every day alternative if you want to feel put together but natural

EDIT: I'd been using this for years, but the most recent bottle I picked up, the consistency and bottle is different than what I've used in the past. It's so liquidy and with the new nozzle it just pours out and you have little control over how much. Als o I think the formula may have changed. When I use it now, it breaks me out. I'm so sad because I loved this bb cream even more so than more expensive ones Firstly, I was seeing a lot of complaints about it not being full coverage. It's a bb cream. They are very much known to be light coverage, maaaybe medium. If you want or need full coverage, bb creams are not for you, stick to regular foundation. That being said, I keep coming back to this bb cream, even after trying other low to mid-end bb creams and tinted moisturizers. It just does exactly what I want a bb cream to do. Hydrates and evens out skin tone, while looking natural and letting my skin still show through. It doesn't separate or settle into dry spots or crease in any fine lines.

This is an overall OK product, nothing really special. Though it can be a little drying at times and it often comes out of the bottle, so when i open the cap it is very messy (if that makes sense). It does give a somewhat good amount of coverage (but definitely not full coverage) for a more everyday look, but i will not repurchase it.

I ended up using this product as an emergency back up as i forgot my usual Bb cream when i was on holiday. I was quite surprised by the consistency as i was so used to using a lighter consistency bb cream, the first few wears were ok but as the week went on, i found that it became quite oily on my skin and it didn't stay on for the whole day. Overall its not bad but i would rather pay a little more to have better quality.
