Rimmel Sunshimmer BB Perfector Review



Rimmel SunSHimmer BB Perfector: £6.99
It has definitely got to that time of year when you have no choice but to take of the thick black tights and let the world see what has been hiding underneath them. Although I love the summer I really hate having my bare legs out! Unfortunately I was not blessed with smooth, supple sunkissed skin. I have been referred to as the milky bar kid on more than one occasion and often get used as the ‘pale scale’ in my friendship group, so I must admit I hate the thought of people seeing my legs.

When I saw the Rimmel BB Perfector advertised I was definitely interested. It claims to smooth; moisturise; tan; give a healthy glow; even skin tone; cover and protect! They were definitely trying to cover all bases with this product but I wanted to find out if it actually worked. I have used the instant gel tan from the Rimmel range before and it always worked ok but I never felt it gave enough coverage for me. The BB Perfector has creamy consistency that looks a lot like foundation instead of tan so I hoped it would have better coverage. I applied it with a tanning mitt (to avoid grimy orange fingernails) and already liked what I saw. It definitely helped disguise imperfections and even the skin tone on my legs, which often look patchy. Although the colour was very natural I would definitely encourage fair skins to only use the light colour, as it was a lot darker than I expected. The product comes in light, medium and dark so it is definitely an option for everyone. My only main negatives of the product are that due to its texture it sinks in and dries very quickly which can result in patches if you don’t work quickly. For a novice tanner this might be a little off putting. I also feel that in terms of keeping legs moisturised it doesn’t quite cut it and after a few hours I could see dry areas around my ankles and knees. Although I did have a few issues with this product it is definitely worth purchasing for those last minute nights out when you need a super quick fix.
