Bobbi Brown BB Cream Review

bobbi brown bb cream review

Hi guys sorry for the lack of beauty related posts these days. I wasn't feeling well the past couple days and couldn't get up to write a review. Anyway, I've been trying and using BB creams for around 4 years now and honestly I've never tried non asian bb creams before. I know there are a lot of western BB creams and CC creams now, but I decided to try Bobbi Brown's as my first.

Keep reading to see the full review.




I received this BB cream from Mizspa for review purposes. I received the packet in good condition, in less than 2 weeks.

It's packaged in a simple black box with product details and descriptions in the back.


Main ingredients

bobbi brown bb cream
This BB cream contains 40 ml of product in a slim tube packaging. I got the Light shade, which I thought would fit my skintone.

The first time I swatched it on the back of my hand, I was rather surprised to see how pigmented it was. And this bb cream shade seems to fit people with yellow undertone. It feels moisturizing, not drying at all and more importantly it's easy to blend.

But I'm more surprised when applying the BB cream on my face. It has light coverage so it barely covers my blemishes. But lately inner part of my face has more pink undertone while the outer part is more yellow undertone. I have uneven skintone and this BB cream evens out my skin. It brightens my skin a bit as well. Though I feel like this product is more like sunscreen + tinted moisturizer than BB cream. So concealer is still needed. Having tried so many asian BB creams with more coverage, I was quite shocked the first time I apply this Bobbi Brown BB cream on my face.

I tried several times with other BB creams to find the perfect combination for my skin. And I find that this BB cream works best on my skin as moisturizer before I apply oil free primer and light coverage BB cream, as this Bobbi Brown BB cream really moisturizes my skin and keep my makeup in place without being too creamy and greasy.

OVERALL ❤❤❤❤
It is an all in one moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment. It has SPF 35 and works well as moisturizer and sunscreen alone. It brightens and evens out dull skin and redness. It contains botanical extracts and caffeine to help reducing redness and discoloration. It claims to minimize pores and fine lines, but I don't see that instantly. This BB cream fits all skin types. The best part about this product is it's moisturizing without being greasy. It's lightweight so I don't feel like wearing anything. I usually apply this BB cream as sunscreen and moisturizer, before my primer and usual BB cream. People with clear and good skin can apply Bobbi Brown BB cream alone. But if you have imperfections, you still may need to use concealer or foundation if needed. This BB cream apparently can also be used as the last step in your skincare, I haven't tried it before though. But, I do notice my skin is getting better after regular use. The other good thing I like is this Bb cream doesn't break me out. While it might be pricy for some, but it worth the price. So if you're looking for moisturizing, light coverage BB cream that doesn't make you feel like wearing anything, then this might be the one.
