Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Review

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Review & Swatch-

Hello lovely ladies 🙂

Let’s begin by saying that I have never used a primer before in my life! I never gave much importance to the benefits & hype primers seem to receive from all the beauty addicts & happily led my life without the silicony touch of one till I bumped into this baby at the Bobbi Brown store months ago 😛 The S.A applied this gorgeous smelling cooling & soothing cream on my cleansed face & the foundation glided on & my pores kind of got blurred & my face looked so much fresher! I checked the price, almost fainted & vowed to come back for this one day if I got rich ^_^ Well I certainly did not get rich, but I was in the mood to splurge one day & just went & picked this beauty up to relieve my parched dry skin from its woes.

My take on the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base-

The packaging is classic Bobbi Brown tub packaging- a round, heavy glass tub with a black screw-on lid & a plastic protector. I love how it looks on my dresser, but hygienic it certainly is not & neither is travel friendly.

The face base is creamy white in color with a medium thick texture which immediately starts melting into buttery smoothness as soon as it is massaged into skin (shea butter base!). It does feel very soothing & cooling on my very dry skin but a tad heavy in the beginning which quickly passes as it gets soaked into skin 🙂 Skin immediately looks & feels supple, soft & well hydrated & any foundation on my face simply glides on without accentuating the dry patches on my skin.

Since I am not a person who uses makeup everyday, this cream is mostly my savior for skin whenever it feels dry, taut or morning/night after cleansing my face. I only need a little bit & that is enough to hydrate my skin & keep it supple till the next morning without any greasy look/feel. That said, it is not probably suitable for oilier skin types & will be a tad heavy for them.

The cream has a fresh, uplifting grapefruit scent which feels so relaxing when I massage it in at bedtime & it does linger on skin for a few minutes 🙂

Pros of the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base:

1> Gorgeous looking glass jar packaging.

2> Thick, creamy consistency which melts upon application.

3> Immediately hydrates skin & makes it soft & supple without greasy feel.

4> Acts as an excellent primer under any makeup to soften lines & blur pores.

5> Excellent as an anytime moisturizer whenever skin looks dry, dull & tired.

6> Fresh grapefruit scent feels very relaxing & soothing.

7> Contains shea butter, Vitamins C & E beneficial for skin.

Cons of the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base:

Terribly expensive 🙁

Not travel friendly or hygienic packaging.

My Rating: 4.8/5!

Do I recommend the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base?

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is one of the top-sellers from Bobbi Brown & there are reasons why! It is an efficient primer along with being an excellent hydrating moisturizer which can be used anyhow & anytime. It is horribly expensive no doubt, as most Bobbi products are, but I need a tiny bit & have hardly made a dent in my month long use of it. I am loving it a lot right now & might even repurchase some day! Recommended.
