I’m usually more of a BB cream type of girl. Mainly because I find a lot of foundation sends to clump around my dry skin and spots.
I’ve been suffering with a lot of spots since I stopped smoking, these have quickly developed into scars that just don’t seem to fade. BB cream isn’t covering them properly so I’ve been learning further and further towards something that will cover the hideous scars on my face. They never really bothered me up until recently, when it dawned on me that I’m getting closer the dirty thirties and by the time I get blemish free skin, I’ll probably be fighting with crows feet and fine lines.
The years are adding up and I don’t want to miss the chance to have nice skin. Or at least pretend to have nice skin.
So out comes the foundation.
Rimmel Match Perfection and Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer.
I bought this duo a while ago but only used it a few times.
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer.
This primer boasts it’s ability to smooth, resurface, brighten, mattify and protect your skin. It’s a white cream that isn’t as thick as moisturiser, but isn’t really runny either.
It absorbs well into my skin and I enjoy using this – although it doesn’t blur and smooth as much as Benefit Porefessional, it does a great job for the price.
I do have to be careful not to over do it though otherwise it can feel a little heavy on the skin.
Rimmel Match Perfection
This perfecting foundation comes with SPF of 18, it’s not too heavy but covers most of my blemishes, which is a massive woo.
I have found it clumpy around spots on occasions, but I don’t know how to really prevent that with any foundation as surely almost every product would clump around dry, broken skin. Sad.
I’ve started using this a few times per week and I’m really liking it. I even had someone at work say my skin looked really fresh and I looked awake, which is a winner – usually at work I look like I’d rather be in bed.
Although my skin still isn’t perfect – I feel a lot happier wearing this foundation and I’m glad I started using it again.
There’s nothing worse than feeling really aware of all the marks on your face while you’re wandering the world and the humans are looking at you. Ugh.
What foundation are you loving lately?
