Love it: Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35



It seems like its BB cream madness right now. Pretty much every brand has (or soon will) released a BB Cream, and as a beauty writer who often shuns foundation by day I feel the need to try them all! My key finding is that they most definitely are not created equal, with many thick and goopy in consistency whilst others feel like seriously watered down foundation.
But leave it up to Bobbi Brown to make a complexion-perfecting product…well… perfect, in the form of her Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35. It takes a lot to impress me but I’m absolutely in love with this formula. I’ve been wearing it everyday since I got it, and it looks damn fine all on its own, or topped off with a bit of mineral foundation and a dab of concealer for a completely flawless finish.
It is essentially a skincare/makeup hybrid that combines moisturizer, treatment, SPF and foundation in one, and the unique skin tone correct formula leaves skin looking flawless and perfectly natural. Consider it your skin’s new best friend!
When used over time, it reportedly provides long-term benefits too– brighter, more even skin tone; diminished appearance of fine lines; reduced redness and minimized pores. SPF 35 boosts the formula with daily protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays and environmental hazards too, which gets a major tick from me.
The first time I used it I think I may have used a little too much product - probably due to the fact that many of the BBs I have tried have been of the aforementioned watery consistency. You really only need a tiny amount - think a pea-sized dollop - to cover your whole face, and I use my fingers to apply and blend because I’m usually in a mad rush. It feels comfortable and wears well throughout the day, and although it costs a little more than some of the big brand BB creams out there at NZD $75.00 I say go for it if you can spare the cash as it really is amongst the best. Oh and it comes in five shades, which is a lot more than most.
