On Wednesay I spoke about how excited I was about BB cream finally coming to South Africa especially the Bobbi Brown BB cream which is one of the better Western BB creams and shopping yesterday and spotted the BB cream at Bobbi Brown in Sandton. After freaking out a little I made the splurge that this product deserves.
This product comes in a measly 40ml bottle and is priced at… Ok, I can’t do it- ask me in the comments because I am way too embarrased!
So for the review:
The Bobbi Brown BB cream is an SPF 35 product that claims to do a multitude of things:
Moisturize, control oil, brightens dullness, evens tone,-targets wrinkles and has UVA/UVB protection as well as provide sheer-medium coverage.
Does it do all of this? Well, I can say that it moisturizes and provides sheer coverage for now.
I got this in the darkest shade Medium to Dark which means that if you’re anything above MAC NC45 than it’s too light for you. I wear NC 42-43 and this is much warmer than my natural skin tone.
Would I repurchase this?
No. It doesn’t provide much coverage and is very pricey. I’m going to have to update everyone later about whether it actually provides the other benefits.
Don’t get me wrong, this is going to replace my tinted moisturizer, bit I’m still going to have to apply concealer if I’m looking for a perfect finish.
