With my recent purchase at Kiehl’s I was given the Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in the shade light as a sample so; couldn’t wait to try it out and write a mini review on it on whether it is worth it or not; so read on to know more.

Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream is a new product launched by Kiehl’s. It is a BB cream which delivers SPF 50 PA+++ UV protection so you need not apply a separate sunscreen. This can be used alone or under foundation.

This BB Cream gives a radiant daily coverage to my skin, instantly beautifies it and minimises the appearance of pores. It left my skin with a clean even tone which lasted the whole day with just a few touch-ups. I have hyperpigmentation on my face so it did cover up quite a bit and didn’t break me out at all. It claims to reduce discolouration in skin though; it’s too early to comment about it as you need to use it regularly to get the results I suppose. This product is Silicone-free, Paraben-free, Fragrance-free, Mineral-Oil free and comes in the shades Fair, Light & Natural.

I am loving this product and have been using it daily and will use it daily till the sample runs out. Very few BB creams have caught my fancy and this definitely is a winner for me. I wouldn’t mind purchasing the full size product which is a 30ml tube for INR 3,200/- which may seem a bit pricy but well that’s Kiehl’s and they have some of the best products in my opinion.

Let me know what is your favourite BB cream and if you have tried the Kiehl’s BB cream do let me know your thoughts on them.


This product has been out in the market for a very long time; I know I am reviewing late; you will know why…

I love Rimmel products they are good and not very expensive too. I’ve used their lipsticks, foundations, mascaras well practically most of their makeup range and love it. When the Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Tint was introduced I had to get my hands on them and so I did and well to be honest I am a bit disappointed with this product. I share a love-hate relationship with this product. I purchased two in the shades 320 – Don’t Let Me Go & 130 – Don’t Stop Blushing.

The packaging of the product is like that of a felt tip pen (the ones we used in school for colouring). I was intimidated by the tip of this lip tint as well as the smell; it very much smelt like a felt tip pen. Also it has a balm at the end with a transparent lid on it.

It is a two-step application where you apply the lip colour first on your lips and then over it apply the lip balm. Basically the balm is for moisturising your lips; keep them supple and soft well my lips felt drier and drier with every passing hour. No doubt the staying power of this lip tint is very good but I didn’t like the way it left my lips dry.

My thoughts on the Rimmel Lip tint  -
It is not a lip stain that can be applied directly on the lips without using gloss/balm on top.
Settles in your lips if, you tend to have dry, chapped and cracked lips.
Very difficult to remove and leaves a stain on your lips even after multiple tries.
The moisturising balm is not very moisturising.
Staying power is very good; lasts a long time on your lips, you may need to just touch up the balm. It does at time leave your lips a bit patchy.
I have tried using this with my lip balm first and then applying the tint over it, the intensity of staining your lips is lesser.

Priced at INR 555/- it is an innovative product no doubt but, it just didn’t ring any bells for me at least. I would not be purchasing this again for sure.
