Make Up Review I Put The Rimmel London BB Cream To The Test

Lets talk about impulsive purchase of makeup and skincare items.  How many of you have been through the same situation?  You enter  Watsons and suddenly you have the pressure of purchasing something because you just don't feel right to leave the store empty handed. That's me the whole time. In this case my impulsive purchase is a Rimmel London BB Cream

Original purpose for the visit was to see what new products they have on store and the price.  But I just could not leave without buying anything, so I decide to get the BB Cream because my previous one has run out and its about time I get a new one.  Well, not really.  I haven't been using BB Cream for so long and the previous one I had was ages ago.

So if you are just starting to wear makeup and wanted to try something basic beginning with a BB Cream, this is the one. Lets put the Rimmel London BB Cream to the test and I will let you know what I think.  Before that, it only cost less than RM20. 
  

What is a BB Cream (Beauty Balm)?.

 BB Cream also known as Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm is an all in one cosmetic product with added skin care benefits which also provides sunblock.  BB Cream was originated in in German by a Christine Schrammek a dermatologist in the 1960s. 

Rimmel London BB Cream Description
Promotes 9-in-1 results : Primes, Moisturizes, Minimizes Pores, Conceal, Covers, Smoothes, Mattifies, Brighten and help protect the skin.
Lightweight Formula to give a flawless and 100% natural finish.  Contains SPF15. 

Benefits of the BB Cream
1. Helps to minimize the appearance of pores
2. Covers and conceals any imperfections for an even skin tone
3. All day comfort for the skin
4. Primes, brightens and mattifies the skin 

Lets proceed to see how the products and the swatch looks like. 

 

The shade is Light/Medium 

Beginning with fresh and clean bare face, I applied toner, lotion and brightening essence.  Proper skincare routine can make a difference to your skin condition. No thick make up is needed when your skin is already a good canvas. Too much make up can clogged up pores, makes your face more oily and worsen your acne. If you are having issues with your skin, please audit your skincare routine and work from there.  



How to Apply the BB Cream. 

The texture of the BB Cream is not thick and it is lightweight, take a few drops of the BB cream and make a dots on your face.  Using fingers or brush apply the cream all over the face.  I prefer to use my hand rather than brush when applying BB Cream.  The heat from your fingers will help the products to be absorbed to the skin.  Below is the half with and without the BB Cream for your comparison. 
Let me tell you, with and without the BB Cream you cant really see much of a difference in skin shade. It is exactly how I wanted.  The BB Cream does a good job in enhancing the skin to make it look better and fresh.  The light/ medium shade matches my original skinNow if you want something thicker with fuller coverage I recommend applying a full coverage foundation.
 What I have on the face is only the Rimmel London BB Cream, no blusher or other face products.  Am I liking it? YES. ABSOLUTELY. 

Checking again on my BB Cream at 6:00pm, around 70% of the BB creams were still there on my face. I was outdoor the whole time painting some doors. Imagine being out at noon and doing some work that makes you sweat, and at the end of the day you still has 70% of the products on your face.  To me, its already good enough. Heat and sweat does wears off the BB Cream and I bet it would have stayed longer if I was in an air conditioned room or being indoors.  

As a conclusion,  in my opinion the Rimmel BB Cream would works well for :

1.  Students who wanted to wear something light to class and to get ready fast. 
2. Working adults, but you might need to reapply after sometime.  Touch up is required because it does not offers full coverage. 
3.  Anyone with budget under RM25 to find a good BB Cream.  This is it!. 

Considering the price of the BB Cream I would say I am quite impressed with how well the product works.  Obviously it doesnt stays up to 24hours but with the price that I am paying it is worth the money I spend. I have been using this daily whenever I am going out if for few hours.  
Will I purchase again? Yes. 

So let me know what you think of the BB Cream and suggest other products that you want me to review in the comment section below.


Tips to Find the Right Engagement Rings featuring BBBGEM

I could not think of any other excuse that your partner would reject your wedding proposal because even I, myself could not say no after I have seen the engagement ring.  Who am I kidding, jewelries are woman best friend.  Give a lady a ring and she can conquers the world.  There are many  great jewelries retailers out there that offers a wide selection of rings.  Even now with the advancement of technology and communication you can even orders ring online.  A person living in London can order a ring to be made from Australia or China.  Tips to Find the Right Engagement Rings featuring BBBGEM is something you need to check out especially if you plan to walk down the isle this year. 

But first, how do you find the right ring?  

Finding the right ring requires a lot of criteria to be put under consideration.  Engagement rings equally as  important as your wedding ring because it signify the unity of love between two people.  You dont want to look at your engagement ring and thought  "oh man, i could do so much better".  The pressure to get the engagement rings right is real guys.

First and foremost the size of the ring finger. The ring will be worn for a long time so getting the sizing right is very crucial. For guys, there are 2 ways to do this;
               1.   to be subtle about it by getting a friend or family to help 
               2.  to ask directly for your partner ring size. 

The letter obviously will ruin the surprises because she will be wondering when will you go on one knee and pop the question.  A girl gets excited of smallest little things even asking bout the ring size will get her to constantly think about it. 

Next, look for inspiration.  The inspiration for engagement rings can comes from everywhere. To help narrow down your search Pinterest is always a good idea. If your partner has a specific interest in type of ring or stones that she prefers her ring to be made of, keep those in mind when scouting for your engagement or wedding rings.  It shows that you are an attentive partner. You may google for ring manufacturer if you insist on getting a custom jewelry for your loved ones.  For custom jewelry we will save that part for later. 

What else is more important then the budget of the engagement rings?.  Everyone wishes to have the biggest and massive karats of diamond on their wedding band but if it costs more than all your organs combined, its not worth it.  That does not mean you could not have an impressive rings that you can be proud of.  When it comes to price and budgeting it can be pretty subjective, but if you are looking for engagement rings under $500, look below:




Which Gems to Choose for the Ring

Is it diamond or other gems?. In case you dont know, there are plenty of gems available on the market. The common ones are Emerald, Jade, Diamond, Pearl, Amethyst, Aquamarine and many more.  Of course, diamond is the famous choice among all but have you heard of Morganite?   

What is a Morganite? 
Morganite is the pink to orange-pink verity of beryl, a mineral that includes emeralds and aquamarine.  The color of Morganite can be pink, orangy pink, purplish pink, its often light in tone. 
Morganite is loved by many because it often comes in lighter pastel shades of pink. I found a stunning piece of a custom order Morganite wedding ring that your partner would say 'I do' immediately.  

The design is exquisite and the Morganite is shining bright just like the future of you and your partner. 

If pink or pastel is not your favorite, then

Turquoise engagement ring is your answer. Turkish Stone it is called, the gemstone is an opaque with blue to green hues mineral. The color is what makes it interesting despite having some benefits related to feng shui and to the wearer.  Personally i think Turquoise does makes a plain simple wedding rings looks stunning.  It brings the meaning of simple to another level. 



Custom made vs ready made engagement rings 

Custom made is more personalized. Its equally important to get the biggest and massive diamond that you can afford but consider this, if you can get your right to be custom made with the same cost which would you choose?.  BBBgem does that,  with over 15 years of experience and  a few headquarters located in several countries they are the place to look for when you are thinking of making your own customized jewelry.  Engagement ring, wedding rings, silver jewelry of all sorts.

One thing I learn over the years is a happy mother makes a happy family. Exhibit A depicts an upset baby.  He is actually wanted to sleep but still could not find his comfort zone to drift off to sleep yet.  It happens often when we went to a different place for a sleepover or when we went back to the hometown.  My baby finds it difficult to sleep at places which he was not familiar with.  Be it for nap time or sleeping at night.  You can see that he is already sleepy and should fall asleep any minutes but he still try to stay awake.  Comparing him to his brother, he is a tough cookie J .  He refuses to sleep because he finds it more fun to play with his cars, trucks and the likes.  With the help of Sleep Time, though he still makes a fuss before he sleep I find that he sleeps better.  Of course he does crank up but not long like before.  It is more manageable after I use the Sleep Time on him.

What is a Jade Face Roller?

A jade face roller is a roller made from jade uses typically to massage the face.  To put it simply, a jade face a two or one headed jade handheld roller.  The jade massage roller is popular among Chinese people at first until recently beauty brands made it popular and known to the rest of us.  The jade massage roller can be used with any skin types.  It does not matter what skin types you have, you can get the benefits from it.


Benefits of Using Jade Massage Roller on Face

So what makes Jade roller worth a spot in your vanity table?.  Lets get to know what benefits of using jade massage roller on your skin. 

  • helps to reduce eye puffiness and fine lines
  • improve blood circulation on the face and neck 
  • can promote lymphatic drainage
  • helps to reduce and prevent wrinkles
  • helps products to be easily absorbed by the skin 

Adding jade roller to your skin routine is simple,  just roll your face with the jade roller for a few minutes before applying your serum or moisturizer and thats it.  You will notice a significant difference in your skin as compared to applying it without the jade roller. 

Does Jade Massage Roller Really Works?. 

Since I got to experience using the jade roller first hand, here is what I think about the tools.  But before that, lets get to know my skin condition if this might help you to decide better if Jade face roller is the right tools for you. My skin condition ranging from normal to dry but not oily.  For skincare I tend to go for products and serum that provides hydration and has moisturizing effects.  Before I have the jade roller I use my hand to apply the products with a patting motion i.e toner, serum, essence and moisturizer.  

Ok move on to the jade roller. There are a few varieties of the jade massage roller available in the market including colors. However all are made from jade and serve the same purpose. The jade roller that I got is the 2 headed jade, one big and one smaller on the other end. 


How to use the jade roller on the face 

As you can see there are two different size of jade on each end.  The bigger part meant for larger part of the face like the forehaead, cheek and chin while the smaller one meant for smaller area like under eyes, chin and your upper lips.  Now you got the technical part right lets move on to directions on how to use the massage roller. 

  • Roll your roller on the cheek in an upward motion for a few times.  This could help you cheek to be firm and glow.  
  • Roll your roller on your forehead to diminish the frown line and allow your blood to circulate better in the area
  • Roll your roller under your eyes to remove the puffiness, especially in the morning if you tend to have your face looks swollen and puffy. 
  • Dont forget to roll the jade around your neck area in an upward motion.  Always remember to include your neck in your beauty routine.    








My verdict on the Jade Massage Roller

 I like how it helps to massage my skin especially if you put the jade roller in the fridge for a few minutes before rolling it to your skin.  It feels relaxing and does help with the puffiness.  Price wise it can range from $2 to $70 on the market. My suggestion is to check with the manufacturer or the seller that what you are purchasing is pure jed.  In my opinion imitation will not work very well.
Its exciting to try out new products that are available in the market and if you are the type of person who like to keep up with the trend, then its a YES.  Overall its a good product.
