Rimmel Fresher Skin Foundation

Over 70% of Australian women are after a light coverage foundation for their everyday routine. Rimmel's Fresher Skin Foundation* represents a breakthrough in light-coverage foundation. Using Japanese raw ingredients, the water-gel texture blends into a refreshing cream. Designed for combination and normal skin types, it claims to be sweat and humidity resistant, or settle into pores or fine lines. I have been trying out this foundation for the past week and I wanted to share my thoughts on this foundation to help you decide whether it might be right for you! 




Pros:

  • It is pretty easy to blend in, and blends well by using either a sponge or a brush. Either way it blends into the skin without too much effort for a healthy dewy glow.
  • This foundation is the perfect every day foundation - it isn't thick, nor is it a full coverage. It is enough to even out skin tone and cover blemishes, but without that full, thick feeling or look.
  • I actually really liked the way it made my skin look - covered, yet natural.
  • It is dewey, but without the shiny finish of many other foundations have. It gives a 'natural dew' (#naturaldew make it a thing...) that doesn't get super shiny over the day. Look, I won't lie you do end up with a bit of a shine, but it's not too bad. 

Cons:

  • It can oxidise on the skin, becoming patchy and cakey - I've heard a lot of people comment that this has happened and in all honesty it hasn't happened all that often for me. I think it does depend on the moisturiser and the primer that you use underneath. I am yet to work out which ones don't work. I'll report back if I do though.
  • If I'm having a particularly bad skin day, I find the coverage of this foundation isn't enough for me. It's not too much of a con, much more of an easy fix - but if you're not one for a light coverage you might want to give this one a miss.
  • I don't like the jar. I'm sorry guys haha but I am a pump foundation through and through. Sure, the jar is easier to get ALL the product out of it, but it's such a pain to get product out of...


The Verdict:

Look, it's not going to be my new holy grail foundation. I do really like how it looks on the skin and the finish it has. I find it great for the days where I don't need to look to glammed up (i.e. I'm not working, or going out). A mix between a BB cream and a foundation, it gives you finish of a BB cream, with the coverage of a lightweight foundation. It isn't perfect though. I do find it to be temperamental - use the wrong moisturiser or primer and you're for sure going to look like a mess within 20 minutes. However, use a primer that works and it will definitely work. Also, if you have dry skin it probably wouldn't work so well. I find it oxidises over the drier parts of my face as well. In saying that, if you're after a natural finish foundation, this definitely does a great job for a price tag that is definitely not excessive. It won't be my go to foundation, but it will be what I reach for when I don't need a full face.

  1. I was waiting for this foundation for a long time. I can't wait to be back in Europe, so I can finally try it out. Just wish the packaging was with a pump or in squeezing tube. :)

  2. Love your review! I can't wait to try it for myself. I think it will be great as an everyday foundation, but I do agree with you, I prefer foundation with a pump. xx

  5. I'm really tempted too try this as I've almost ran out of my current foundation and would like too try a new one! I'm slightly put off by the fact it hasn't got up a pump though :( great postxx
