The Review Crew® Report: Rimmel London Fresher Skin Foundation

Find out what our testers thought about the weightless foundation

The Review Crew® panel

Beauty Crew sent Rimmel London Fresher Skin Foundation to women aged between 16 and 29 with combination skin. 

What they loved:

How comfortable it felt on their skin: Most testers found that the foundation felt lightweight on their skin, with some commenting it felt like they weren’t wearing any foundation at all. 

How it mattified their complexions: As the testers have combination skin, many suffer from oiliness, especially in the T-zone. Many commented that the foundation worked well to mattify their skin and keep shine in check, without looking dried out or cakey. 

How natural it looked: Offering light to medium coverage, testers were happy about how glowing and natural the foundation left their skin looking. Some also commented that they found the formula easy to build up for more coverage.

This might not be for you if…

You prefer heavier coverage: Some testers did mention they prefer a foundation that offers more coverage, and recommended this foundation to those who are looking for a natural, everyday look, or minimal coverage on the weekend.

The verdict

“Perfect coverage. With one layer you could still see my freckles, which I love, but if I wanted a "night-time" look all it took was just one more layer, and even then it still felt super light.”

“I absolutely loved the light, natural coverage of this foundation. I have lots of red in my skin and this foundation evened it out without looking like I was wearing anything.”

“I wet my beauty blender then dipped it into the foundation jar. It wasn't runny but it wasn't thick either. It had a light coverage, which is great for everyday wear. It reminded me a bit of BB cream. It went on smoothly and wasn't streaky, it actually didn't feel like foundation which I loved. I tend to get an oily t-zone throughout the day, however I didn't get it while using this foundation which is amazing!”
