Winter is drawing nearer, which means our skin dries out, who wants that? How do we get luscious, soft, plump skin in harsh temperatures? This is how!
I have numerous skin issues including eczema, so i’ve always suffered from flaky skin, sometimes in the summer but mainly when the chill hits us in winter. My skin used to be flaking without makeup, never-mind if I tried to doll myself up. Obviously, the flakes just shone through and peeling dry skin, is not the greatest look AT ALL! I was searching for a product to help my skin with it’s craving of hydration.
I was hearing so many great reviews online about the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, so it lead me to trying it out. People use it as a nourishing cream/primer/anything you want to use it for. I remember when I was ordering it, I was skeptical about assuming it was a foundation primer as it doesn’t state that in the name, it says ‘face base’. But I double checked and made sure I knew what I was buying, and in its description it does say it can be used as a base for makeup application or if you just want a lovely nourishing facial cream. So it basically sounded like my perfect match.

First Impressions: When it arrived, I was so happily surprised. It arrives in a white box, and as you take the jar out of the packaging, it looks so luxurious. the tub/jar is glass (quite thick so it shouldn’t break easily), the screw lid is black plastic with the brands engraving moulded into it. The product name and ingredients are stated on the glass jar and the outer white box. There’s a nice weight to it, since the jar is glass and the product is a great 50ml.
Product: This product is oil-free. It has a slight yellow tint to the cream which brightens your skin, making your skin look refreshed and not so dull. It feels buttery, creamy, and rich. The texture is on the thicker side and seamlessly glides onto the skin. Your skin swallows it up, yet creating a barrier between your skin and foundation. Leaving a plump hydrating slightly tacky finish. So it’s absolutely perfect as a primer as the foundation has something to adhere to, yet it’s just as amazing purely on its own. This nourishing product is filled with healthy and great ingredients for your skin, such as Vitamin B, C and E, which is so beneficial! This cream has a light scent of Grapefruit and Geranium. The formula is so silky smooth, almost like a second skin… but better!
I can’t begin to describe how rare it is to find such a versatile product! Also this product is stated to be especially amazing for normal and oily skin types. I have combo skin but more on the dry side and this product works like no other for me! It literally moisturises and preps your skin for if you want to apply makeup. It’s multitasking for me! Genius! Perfect all year round!
Final Thoughts: I love this product so much and there isn’t really anything out there like it. Many primers are just primers and creams are just… you guessed it, creams. This product is legendary and trust me, you’ll realise how long you’ve been struggling without it. This product will become one that you can’t live without. I know I can’t! I highly recommend!
