Rimmel fresher skin foundation
Great foundation, poor packaging!
I really like this foundation. It is very natural - something I always look for when choosing foundations. The consistency is light, almost mousse like, but it glides on much like a liquid foundation. I apply it with a brush, and use primer underneath which makes my face look fresh and awake. I bought the foundation in the lightest shade: 010 - Light Porcelain and the shade fits my skin tone perfectly. Though the foundation appears to have a bit of an orangey tinge in the pot, this does not transfer onto the face. I wear my makeup all day, from when I apply it in the morning until when I remove it in the evening, and fortunately the foundation does not oxidise during this lengthy period. I would give this product 5 stars...if it wasn't for the packaging.
As I mentioned earlier, although this foundation has a whipped mousse like texture, it is light and glides on fluidly. The packaging consists of a little pot, with a white plastic cover inside which is very messy! I think this foundation should be in a pump bottle which would stop the mess because of the lightness of the foundation (it doesn't need a pot as it isn't a full mousse) Having said this, you do get a lot of product in the pot, and two dabs into the pot with my makeup brush does my whole face on a medium coverage, so the value for money is excellent, and I imagine I will be using this for a long time yet! I would recommend this foundation, but it would be better in a bottle. :)

Really bad product
It's appears to blend really badly into the skin and creates a patchy effect on cheeks. Not worth it for the price.

Gave me a really bad breakout!!!
This foundation goes on really nice and makes my skin look fresh and smooth, it also lasts a long time. However, I don't know if this is a coincidence or not but I have worn this almost every day for the past week and 2 days after wearing it I had a really really bad breakout!! Was covered in yellow heads! Every time I wear the foundation my spots get worse!! I usually wear Estée Lauder - double wear every day and have never had this issue. Thought I would try a cheaper foundation for work etc and i will now happily pay more for a better foundation!! Avoid Rimmel if you want to avoid a spot breakout!! Will not be buying this foundation again!!! Will be going back to boots though for some acne treatment!!
