Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35
good but could be better
I had not tried a BB cream until one day I decided to simplify my beauty routine and bought Bobbi Brown's BB cream. I am fair and I found out that although it was almost the color of my skin, it was a little bit darker - just like someone said in one review here. I loved at first but as time passed I realized that it was somewhat "oily". I do have combination skin and it made it even more oily in the "T" zone. Needless to say, I have had so many breakouts. As I am in my late 30's it's kind of embarrassing to breakout. For what I read, I'm even more afraid of trying other brands so I will continue to wear it until I am finished.
Not Good for me
This is the first BB product that I don't love. Too heavy, tried with and without moisture, still not happy. Maybe I just need tinted moisture. Returning.
Great BB Cream!
I have tried a huge amount of BB creams on the market and most have just been OK, but nothing great. This one is the best I've tried. By itself it's pretty good if you want light, natural coverage. When I paired this with Bobbi's foundation stick I was blown away. The two together gave me the look of flawless skin to the point where people noticed - and not the "wow you're make-up looks great" comments, but "wow your skin looks so beautiful" comments. It kind of showed me that using products within the same line usually yields a better result. I have used her foundation stick with other bb or cc creams and didn't get that great of a result, but using her bb cream with her foundation stick where I needed extra coverage blended together flawlessly. Now unfortunately I have a stock pile of bb and cc creams that I probably won't use because this one just looks so wonderful! I have dry skin so I do need to wear moisturizer underneath, but if you have oily skin you could likely get away with not needing anything else except some consealer if you have dark circles or any sun damage that needs extra coverage. Another tip for this bb cream (and others) - they make wonderful primers for powder foundations. I have a lot of powder foundations from kits lying around and I always needed too much of the powder foundation for coverage so it looked cakey. If you use some of this first, just a tiny bit of powder foundation is needed. Overall great, multi-tasking product that I will purchase again.
Holy Grail of BB creams
I've tried lots of BB creams, because I love the idea of combining skincare with makeup. However, none of them got the color and finish just right. Except for BOBBI! This product is truly amazing. I wear the Light (fair but not porcelain) ...and the color correction is astounding yet still completely natural. I get complements on my skin, and I truly credit this product. I use Josie Maran's SPF 40 moisturizer underneath, because the BB cream alone isn't enough moisture for me (I have sensitive, combination skin). Plus, if I get the chance to layer two products with sunscreen that look this good, I'm going to do it!!! I hope Bobbi NEVER stops making this product or I will seriously hoard it!!!
Cream that does it all!!
I am 60 years old and have been blessed with good skin. I use this cream as moisturizer, sunscreen and light foundation. It gives the light coverage I am looking for and I get compliments all the time when I use this cream. By the way a little of this cream covers very well, so the tube will last you a long time.
not what I thought
I wanted to love this bb cream because I have tried so many foundations and none have done a great job. I just finished a cheaper brand and it wasn't that bad but I figured I wanted to treat myself and ordered this. I'm 54 with normal to dry skin and I was appalled at how dry this made my face look. it says you don't need a moisturizer since its suppose to be in it already but that wasn't true. So I will stick to the cheaper version and keep looking.
I have to say I love this stuff! Its a tad dark for me even though its the lightest shade but I blend the Bobbi Brown white powder and its great. You need the littlest amount, get a decent coverage that lasts and I like that it has spf and moisturizes. If they went a shade lighter I would love it even more. Its great! I recommend this, and this is coming from someone who loves full coverage foundation. I consider it moderate coverage but makes skin look flawless
MOST PRECIOUS BB CREAM EVER FOUND
I've tried many BB creams, but after trying Bobbi Brown's BB Cream I knew I had hit the jackpot. This product leaves my skin a perfect canvas to add the rest of my makeup on without looking my face looking cakey or looking like pancake makeup. In short, I LOVE IT!!! Thanks Bobbi Brown!!! I wrote a good review on one other BB product sold on QVD, but this one far surpasses ANY and ALL I've ever tried. Period. End of story.
Love Bobbi Brown
For my dry skin, this product worked beautifully after washing my face, applying my skincare (including a moisturizer). The color -- extra light -- was absolutely perfect, and it is also fragrance-free - THANK YOU BOBBI BROWN.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars had to do with the ingredients she used for the sunscreen. I would have preferred an all-natural sunscreen, instead of a combination of Oxybenzone with other sunscreens. I think the reason for the Oxy, was it makes for a cosmetically elegant product; Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are terrific, but they can be difficult to integrate into an elegant preparation. In future, I hope Bobbi will find a way to use Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, rather than Oxybenzone!
My other suggestion to readers with dry, aging skin like mine who prefer "natural" and NO FRAGRANCE is to try the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation which rocks!
Great coverage -- flawless looking skin
I'm a Bare Minerals girl, BUT I recently relocated to FL and am going through menopause so I get hot flashes whenever I stress out. It never fails, I'm stressing in the morning trying to get ready for work. Bare Minerals does not work very well on sweaty skin, so I went looking for a tinted moisture for those days when i couldn't do my regular makeup. Thankfully, the girl at the Bobbi Brown counter suggested I try the BB cream (I also have oily skin). I LOVE this stuff. I get great coverage for weekends and until i cool down enough to add some mineral powder. I also will use a sponge and add a bit of mineral powder after I've applied the BB cream. It stays on all day. I can see myself using this through the summer!!
I have always loved BB foundations and her BB Cream is no exception. Her colors always look natural on the skin. I don't care about the SPF in any makeup because I always use a separate Broad Spectrum SPF daily as I live in Flordia. However, SPF35 is good and I just love BB products.
Best Bb cream
I 've being wearing Bb creams since last spring when they came out I tried one by Mac , Smashbox ,garnier, loreal I also have used Laura Mercer tinted one and this one is my favorite hands down for Bb cream .I like it because it provides more coverage than TM
But less than a heavy foundation. I did find that I look younger and my face has a flawless
quality in pictures plus at 44 yrs old I have cut down on my beauty routine I use philosophy microwash and Help Me and that is it . Bobbi gets my coloring perfectly l I rotate between light Bb and foundation stick in warm sand which I used as a cover stick of an on since my 20's. I will tell you that I've herd from Bb rep that if you have dry skin use moisturizer under it I have combination skin and it works great on me. It's a keeper !!
