I am sure you've heard the expression "You are what you eat". I've heard it many times but it's never rung more true for me than now. I have had a couple of very indulgent weeks here in Norway and I feel like my body is made up of 80% cake and 20% coffee. Not a very good statistic but Norwegians love their coffee and cake and I have had more than enough. My body is not loving it either so I am hoping for healthier food in 2013, I am simply craving vegetables and fruit.
This has happened twice a day for weeks. So delicious but it's just too much!
My skin has also freaked out a little thanks to all the sugar and lack of nutritional ingredients.
I was therefore thrilled when I remembered that I picked up Rimmel London's newly released BB Cream when I was in London. It's available in three shades and I went for the light shade since I am rather pale. Now this BB Cream promises nine things. Yes NINE... Apparently it will Prime, Moisturise, Minimise Pores, Conceal, Cover, Smooth, Mattify, Brighten and with its SPF25 it helps to Protect as well. It's a big promise and I have to say that I'm quite happy with it. The scent isn't overwhelming and it complemented my face really quickly.
I did find the concistency to be quite thick so I would recommend starting out with a little bit and layering it on instead. The 30ml tube will last quite a while. I think I paid around 8 pounds for it at Boots so that converts to about $12 so it's very affordable. Whilst I don't need the SPF25 at the moment since I'm in the land of cold, it is good that its got the added coverage for when it's needed.
For now I'm happy with the BB Cream but I look forward to trying it out in Sydney too to see how it copes with the warmer weather. I am hoping for less shine and more glow.
Which is your favourite BB Cream? Have you had too many indulgences too?
