Review: Bobbi Brown BB Cream.

As my skin has been looking a lot clearer recently, I've been getting in to BB creams (you may have noticed this, foundations rarely feature on gh0stparties anymore!) I've been trialling this Bobbi Brown version recently, their first on the market, which works as a skincare and makeup product to brighten skin and create a flawless base. As I'm new to this here BB cream phenomenon, I'm going to give a more in depth review so stay tuned! 

A little bit of background info - Bobbi Brown claim that when used over time, this wonder helps to even out skin tone and minimise pores and redness whilst also providing natural coverage and a flawless finish on a daily basis. Sounds pretty fantastic, am I right? I shall report back my findings. 

Bobbi Browns BB Cream appealed to me as it aims to brighten skin and leave it looking flawless - two things I always look for in a base product! I usually dot this on to my face with fingers and then buff in with a Real Techniques Buffing brush, instantly any blemishes and imperfections are covered and my skin looks much more even. 
I'm actually impressed with how long this lasts, I add concealer on top if it's needed but I don't use a powder and the staying power is pretty damn good. I do find that if I've been doing a lot of walking, my nose is a little bit shiny afterwards (although this could just be me as I experienced it with another BB cream recently). 

Overall, if you're looking for a product which smooths over skin, has a natural coverage and glowing finish then I'd recommend Bobbi Browns BB Cream. Other pull factors are the high SPF and the skincare benefits when used over a period of time. 

What do you think of Bobbi Browns BB Cream?

  11. I bought this about a month ago and I have worn it nearly every day since. I find it lasts really, really well on my ski. Much better than I expected it to. Also, the lightest one is actually really light and perfect for my winter skin. x

  12. I love trying new BB creams and this really interests me, great review :)

  15. I've heard great things about this BB BB (haha), it apparently holds up really well for oily skin and leaves a good finish. One that I use and like a lot is the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB, which has beautiful coverage + finish but not the best lasting power in hot climates. Would definitely recommend it!

  16. I've seen this on a few blogs lately, I think I'll definitely have to give it a go. Looking forward to your full review post xx

  17. Really curious about trying this BB cream. Especially since I'll most probably be able to find a match.

    Thanks for the review! xx

  18. I'm yet to jump on the BB bandwagon .. this looks interesting though!



  19. Im not too keen on these i just think they are a glorified tinted moisturiser tbh :P
