Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Review

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Bobbi Brown makeup, but did you know they have a pretty impressive skincare range too? I've raved about the Bobbi Brown Extra Balm Rinse before, which is one of my favourite cleansing balms, and I'm a pretty big fan of their Hydrating Eye Cream too. The latest skincare treat to join my daily routine from the range is the Vitamin Enriched Face Base and I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed, considering Bobbi Brown is predominately a makeup brand, they really know how to get their skincare products right!

Most suited to normal and oily skin types, it is one of Bobbi Brown's bestselling skincare products. A hybrid moisturiser that also works as a primer, it has a beautifully rich texture that is lightweight and leaves skin feeling luxurious once applied. It has an oil-free formula and utilises skin-loving ingredients such as Shea Butter, which helps to soften and hydrate skin, as well as Vitamins B, C and E. It has a very light subtle scent of Grapefruit and Geranium. It really is a very light scent so perfect for those who like to avoid the overly perfumed options on the skincare market.

What I like in particular about this moisturiser is the way it makes my skin feel; soft, healthy, hydrated, without that heavy feeling many hydrating moisturises can have. It feels incredibly light on my skin, doesn't leave a greasy residue and the effects last for hours after application, whether morning or night. Of course, with its formula made to work well as a priming base too, it does work really well with makeup and I've found it holds off my dehydration for longer, making my makeup look fresher for longer too.

I also like how well this product works without needing to use very much at all. A little goes a long way and with products that have a high price point like this, £44 for a 50ml pot, that's a big plus for me. It's undoubtedly a luxurious product and it makes my skin feel luxurious too!
