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.

This has a VERY thick consistency for a BB cream which I wasn’t expecting and which I actually find a bit too thick for every day use, which kind of defeats the object of it being a BB cream. Application is easy, although I’ve found a little goes a long way and it’s easy to overdo things. With the ‘Very Light’ shade I have that can result in a ghostly cast to my skin, which isn’t too bad in the autumn/winter months when I’m paler anyway but not so forgiving in the spring/summer months.According to the blurb on the back of the tube, this has 9 in 1 results, which are:1) Primes – I still find I need to use a primer2) Moisturises – I still use my regular moisturiser before applying this, as this alone definitely wouldn’t be enough for my skin3) Helps minimise the appearance of pores – possibly on first application, but as the day wears on I actually find my pores become more noticeable as this settles into them4) Conceals – it does but mainly because the consistency is so thick5) Covers – again it does, but only because the consistency is so thick which isn’t really ideal in a BB cream6) Smooths – much like the minimising pores claim, this does smooth on first application but as the day wears on and my skin gets oily it actually starts to look patchy especially on my forehead, nose and chin7) Mattifies – on first application yes, but this definitely doesn’t last all day and my skin looked no less oily throughout the day whilst using this8) Brightens – I would have to disagree with this statement as I feel like it actually has a tendency to cancel out any colour on my skin, making it look flat and lacklustre without blush etc applied over it9) Helps protect – it’s got SPF 25 in it, which for a drugstore product is pretty good goingOverall this is an okay BB cream to use when I don’t have anything else to hand, but I don’t think it lives up to the 9-in-1 claims and I won’t be repurchasing when the one I have is empty.

It's good for a drugstore price , not that much product and cheap packaging but it covers well but it's not full coverage cause it's a bb cream

Makes my skin oily, irritated, looks like it will never dry out after applying and gives incredibly sheer cover. Breaks me out usually the day after I use it. The lightest shade is at least 3 typical shades too dark.Bought it as my first BB cream ever, it sort of put me off the whole idea of BB creams for a long long time. Incredibly cheap, sometimes I have to use it as a backup plan, so I guess it was useful from time to time. A lot of people use it, but it's usually people who, no offence, grab the first thing from the drugstore. There's so many other products that wouldn't have any of these issues for similar price.

This product is very thick sticky. Even mixed with moisturizer it's still fairly heavy coverage and sticky. Also, it wears off fairly quickly and is quite orange.

Not the best bb cream I've used took a lot of product to even see it making any difference, bit of an odd colour.

Overall Rating: 4/5SKIN BACKGROUND: Combo/Oily, acne prone, SUPER sensitive, mild scarring and discoloration, beige skin with dominant yellow undertones.PRICE: $8COVERAGE: To achieve a solid medium coverage, I use a stippling brush. I find this is the best method of application. With your fingers it is more of a light coverage.FINISH: Dewy and natural TEXTURE: It is a little thick at first but it blends really easilySPF: 25LASTING POWER: This is where this lacks. It gets oily pretty fast, I have to touch up atleast 3 times a day SCENT: Yeah it has a sunscreeny smell, but it goes away after application.SHADES: I have this in "Light", which is okay. They also have "Medium" and "Deep"DID THIS BREAK ME OUT?:Nope!!!PACKAGING: Just a regular squeeze tube. Its small and cute WOULD I REPURCHASE?: YesFINAL VERDICT: I think this is great for everyday

I wrote a review about this a while ago when I first stating using this and I've changed my mind.. As I keep on using it, I'm starting to hate it. It becomes so oily after a while and the lightest tone is dark orange!

Personally, I'm not a BB-cream girl. I was really hoping that this one would be better, but not much.It oxidized quite a bit, made my skin itch a lot (most likely the linalool) and gave me a break out of tiny bumps. Not for someone with sensitive skin.I also noticed some random colour streaks when I squeezed out the tube once... very weird.
