There are a few reasons why Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream is one of the better ones on the market – at least from a Western beauty brand. (I haven’t tried any of the famous Asian ones yet, which is surprising.)
You may remember my post, Are BB Creams Bad For Your Skin? and know that I’m personally a fan of them. I’ve tried plenty, because I don’t really like wearing foundation and prefer BB Cream’s lighter finishes, and this is a stand out.
First, you gotta hand it to Bobbi Brown; the fact that it is SPF 35 is wonderful.
Second, the Bobbi Brown BB Cream gives no nasty white cast on your face – a feature that I find a lot of BB creams have today.
… And lastly, I find that my skin looks really smooth and matte for a good 6 hours. Considering Singapore’s hot, humid weather, and the fact that I didn’t get even a slight glimmer of oil on my face is VERY impressive.
As you can see, the formula is smooth and blends easily into the skin, disappearing and creating a smooth, flawless base. However, like all BB Creams, you have to have somewhat good skin – the coverage is flawless, yes, but also very light. I could still see some slight imperfections coming through and if you’re like me and have some visible little veins on your face… it won’t cover it – maybe just 50% of it.
Overall, out of the many BB Creams I’ve tried, this is in my Top 3, so definitely recommend this one.
It’s a bit hard to find (in the airports only, I believe) but you can buy it online here.
