BB cream for legs

Rimmel Sunshimmer Instant Tan 9-in-1 BB Skin Perfector in Light Matte review swatch photo

Now I don’t know about you but I’m sick to death of BB. It felt like the marketing beauty word on everyones lips was BB last year. BB has gone beyond your basic BB cream to BB lips, eyes and god knows what else. None the less I’ve been recently trialling the Rimmel Sunshimmer Instant Tan 9-in-1 BB Skin Perfector in Light Matte after a tip of from Anna. And it gets a big BB thumbs up fro me.

I didn’t actually expect to like this as much as I do - Me and Rimmel Sun Shimmer have a rocky relationship but this is is much better. It gives my legs a flawless glow with minimal effort. It evens the skin tones, covers, protects and lasts all night with no bleeding. I feel like Light Matte is a touch orange but I personally quite like that tone in my fake tan but thats something to consider if your considering purchasing it. It also comes in a medium which is a little too dark for me! I really enjoy this product... much more than I thought I would!

  3. I definitely need to give this a go! Much cheaper than other products that seem to claim to do a similar thing!

  6. This sounds really good, does it cover like a normal fake tan? Or is it a bit more natural?

  8. I feel a bit like that about BB creams too but I actually really like this. I got the medium as I find the lighter shades of tan often look a bit orangey on me-and my legs are so milk bottle white they can definitely cope with the medium when it's blended in properly.
    I did a review of a few different instant tans on my blog the other day. I actually prefer this to some of the more expensive ones! x

  10. This sounds like a great idea, we've tried Sally Hansen airbrush legs but you have to rub it in quickly or else you end up with dots all over your legs which don't come off easily!

  13. it would be great for me if it didn't have orange tint to it :P for some occasions like weddings and stuff I use Face and Body from MAC in C1- perfect color for somebody pale like me who doesn't like the look of fake tan but wants to cover uneven skin tone, minor bruises and little veins... the only thing with MAC F&B is that it's to expensive to use it on daily basis...

  18. Considering giving this a try as I've not been getting on too well with the Dove Summer Glow lately, even though I used to love it, I'm finding it really greasy and it hasn't been settling into my skin well at all! But this one sounds like a great alternative x
