I visited Rustan's Makati yesterday for my regular "what's up" checkup. Guess who I ran into! Why, Carrot of Bobbi Brown! She was doing her usual counter visits at La Mer and Bobbi, looking all fresh and pretty even though I know she's probably already mega stressed by that time (as all the Estee Lauder girls are!). I asked her if there's anything new, so she told me about Bobbi's latest product: the Bobbi Brown BB Cream with SPF35 PA++.
Developed by Bobbi Brown for customers who want a product with serious skincare and makeup benefits, this all-in-one cream perfects and smoothes skin’s appearance—instantly and over time. Its easily buildable formula evens out and gives skin a lit-from-within glow. Skin is filled with moisture as oil and shine are kept at bay. Plus SPF helps protect skin against UVA/UVB damage.
In a short while, fine lines and wrinkles appear less noticeable, visible redness is reduced and pores appear more refined.
This new BB cream is so popular that it's already sold out within the month! According to Carrot, they will restock by the end of June or early July so BB cream fans, you have to wait 'till then. In the meantime, I have swatches and first impressions for you.
The product's texture is rich so you only need a small dot for each half of your face. It only comes in two shades, Light and Fair, which are both yellow-toned and look very similar to each other. The BB cream goes on smoothly, with a very even finish that's not oily or shiny. It's quite matte.
Even though the shades are in the light side of the spectrum, they blended seamlessly in my medium-toned skin. All these aside though, I believe that the main selling point of the product is the SPF35.
Now, if you're into BB creams or would like to start, Bobbi Brown's latest product is certainly worth checking out. It's quite pricey at P2,100 for a 40mL tube, but hey, you know how benevolent I feel towards pricey cosmetics as long as it delivers!
Unfortunately I don't own a tube so I can't do a full review right now. This is more of a heads up to all you BB cream/tinted moisturizer-loving gals out there. ;)
