Name: Rimmel BB Cream 9-In-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup
Colour: Medium
Price: £5-£7
Where to buy: Superdrug, Boots
"It's a skin perfecting super makeup! 9 in 1 results: Primes, Moisturises, Minimises pores, conceals, covers, smooths, mattifies, brightens and helps protect with SPF25."

Hi Guys!
I bought this in Superdrug a few days ago (Oh Superdrug is doing a 3 for 2 on all cosmetic makeup so grab it before the promotion goes!). I was intrigued in buying this product since Rimmel has finally realised a BB Cream.

So this has 9 results which beats maybelline 8 results (maybelline didn't state it can be used as a primer haha) All these benefits to a BB Cream is getting a bit over the top. I feel like all the BB Cream in UK are trying to show how many good function there is to it (which isn't much different to Tinted moisturiser and a foundation). In Asia Countries, BB Cream selling point was healing blemishes and whitening but Europe seems to have listed all these "benefits" making it sound like no other product does it. What is the difference between conceals and covers? 

Anyway, I'll stop slating and get back to this product. This product reminds me a lot of the Maybelline BB Cream. The packaging is the same size. Its selling point is similar.

The texture of the BB Cream is similar to Maybelline. When I applied it on, it had a matte feel on my face. There is a scent to it which reminds me of Baby Johnson and Missha BB Cream. It smells really good actually.



So it smoothed my skin, making it look more youthful, it got rid of the oily parts, it covered my blemishes, it gave a natural glow on my cheek, it hydrates my skin leaving it feeling really soft. My face looks whiter after applying as well (maybe this is the brightening effect!). A very good BB Cream I must say BUT after a few hours my face got kind of greasy. This BB Cream didn't really last on my skin. My face actually feels quite greasy as well when I touch it. I don't know if my skin is glowing or shiny.

- good price for a BB Cream
- Easy to apply on the face
- Does what it say it will do on the description.

- does not last long
- my face feels greasy.

Rating: 7/10
 I would recommend this BB Cream for people who have normal or dry skin but this isn't really for people with oily skin. There are some good parts in this BB Cream but I think Maybelline one is better then this and I would recommend purchasing Maybelline BB Cream rather then this one.

Name: Liese Bubble Hair Dye
Colour: Glossy Brown
Price: £8-£12
Other colours to choose from: 17 colours
 "Liese Bubble Hair Color is a new type of permanent hair color. Just apply foam on hair and massage. No more troublesome sectioning of hair! Foam reaches all over the head easily and you can achieve beautiful, evenly colored hair easily!"

Hey guys!
It has been a while since I have posted. (I keep breaking my promise that I will post daily). I dyed my hair last month. I said I would never dye it again but I got bored of my hair colour (again) so I felt like changing it. 
My parents got this liese box for me in Hong Kong and it was left hidden in the cupboard so I decided to use it. I have used liese before but I have got to say that this time was the best results I have had with this product.
I normally buy it online so when the postage comes, I use the liese straight away but I don't find the product as foamy as I want it to be. This product was just lying in the cupboard so when I used it this time it had A LOT OF FOAM! I was really impressed with how FOAMY it was. I remember before when I used it, it was not as foamy as this. This was exactly like the advert. There was a lot left but I keep putting it on my hair. I left it on for 30 minutes (and a bit over).

This product is very easy to use. It is your normal hair dye package (for people who regularly dyes hair.)
- gloves are provide
- a conditioner pack
- Bottle A and Bottle B mixed together
- Tilt bottle 5 times (not shake)
- hold bottle straight up and squeeze still foam comes out.
- Start applying foams at the bottom of your hair first (it is hard to dye the bottom part of your hair then the top).
- Work your way up the hair and then put your hair all up till it foams.

Before hair dye (black, purple):


Few weeks later:

- easy to use
- not messy
- the correct colour shows
- makes my hair really soft after use

- hard to get your hands on this product
- a bit pricey

 Rating: 9/10
Very impressed with this hair dye. I recommend leaving it in your cupboard before using it straight away when you get it because you have to let it settle. The mixture is not suppose to be shaked vigorously. I could see the hair colour when I washed my hair. I don't think my photo did this product any justice since in real life the colour is more noticeable especially in the light. My hair got a bit lighter after a few wash as well. I didn't recommend this product to people who wants a change.
