Bobbi Brown BB Cream, another perfect base.


If you've been reading my blog for a while now you will know I am a huge fan of Bobbi Brown. Not only are Bobbi Brown makeup, skincare and brushes all of some of the most amazing quality I have ever tried, but the ethos and thought behind the brand, from Bobbi Brown herself, is super lovely, with Bobbi seeing beauty for what it is, not what it can't be. Bobbi emphasises the beauty that each individual has, and uses her now World famous techniques to emphasise our best features, not hide them. Less is more with Bobbi and that's something I've personally learnt and picked up through my makeup lessons with the fantastic Bobbi Brown team in Nottingham.

BB creams are another thing I adore; I really got into BB creams this year, having last year found the high-street ones do nothing for my oily skin, but the high-end ones, leave my skin looking like 'my skin but better', perfect. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear that Bobbi Brown had released a BB cream, with the benefits of a built in SPF35. If a high SPF to protect your skin isn't enough, this BB cream is a bit wonderful in other ways, too. The Bobbi Brown BB Cream* works to moisturise, perfect and protect, both whilst on and the more you use it over time. The formula combines a moisturiser, a treatment, an SPF35 and works as a light-weight foundation, whilst covering blemishes and imperfections subtly and naturally, leaving your skin looking and feeling great. There's nine shades in the range and each has been formulated with water-attracting molecules to boost our ever depleting hydration levels, light reflective pearls which work to brighten our skin making us look refreshed and youthful. Botanical extracts are also popped in this beauty along with caffeine, which work together to reduce any unwanted pigmentation and discolouration, whilst simultaneously reducing redness - which is great for me and my unwanted rosy cheeks! Not forgetting the broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and antioxidants, all which work together to protect our skin from free radicals and prevent future damage to our skin. Sounds amazing, right?

And that's because it is. I was so wowed when I first tried this BB cream, finding the scent, the feel and consistency, the way it perfectly blended, so similar to my holy grail foundation, the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation. Giving my skin enough coverage to tone down any imperfections I might want to hide, but without the added weight of a foundation. It feels light and sheer on my skin, easily build-able to a higher coverage, yet always feeling comfortable on my skin. It's very easy to blend and I find I can apply this with a beauty blender or brushes, and I am left with a lovely finish. Not quite matte, not quite dewy; just the perfect in-between. If there's one brand which never lets me down for bases, it's Bobbi Brown. And the Bobbi Brown BB Cream is another perfect product for me. (Bobbi Brown*, £29

  2. I'm the same with BB creams, I haven't found a dugstore brand that can tame my skin. Although it's more comnbination than oily. So this looks intriguing.

    I only wish they'd made one more or one less shade. 9 is such an odd number! Haha

    1. I don't think high-street BB creams cut it tbh. I've never tried one that has lasted with my oily skin! I hope you'll give the Bobbi Brown BB Cream a go! :) xo

  3. hey :-) Weird one I hated this BB cream I thought it was like concrete and really difficult to blend. I prefer the Dr Jart one although if I had the choice I wouldn't wear BB creams at all...they have a pretty horrible finish - quite cakey like a bad mismatched foundation. I have yet to try Dior's though which I hear is legendary..

    I like Porefessional and dusting of powder foundation - that suits my skin much better.

    each to their own of course...

    1. It has a gorgeous finish. It leaves my skin looking as flawless as the Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation, but with the coverage and lightness of a BB cream :) Plus the built in SPF is a winner!! xo
