Review of all my Bobbi Brown Base Products
Hey guys this blog contains all my Bobbi Brown base products ex foundation. Things to prep your skin before the real action!
First up, the Skin Radiant Glow Cushion Compact SPF 50 PA+++ is a summer’s must have. Sunscreen is a must, and this cushion offers the protectiveness of sunscreen combined with a youthful glowy skin. I love how easy it is to apply, and it doesn’t really feel like putting on sunscreen, but still getting the same benefits of a sunscreen. Do you get what I mean? The downside is, I don’t think this is as affordable as normal sunscreen, you don’t get that many uses out of one compact. But it’s refillable though, so I guess that’s a plus. I couldn’t find the official description on the Bobbi Brown US site, because probably this was released in Asia only.
Here's the inside.
Next, the Illuminating Moisture balm in Pink Glow. This is a multi purpose balm which acts both as skincare and a face primer/illuminator.
Our best-selling luminizing moisturizing balm now comes in an innovative new package and new skin-flattering shades, Pink Glow and Golden Glow. This skin-boosting balm imparts an instant glow with pearl particles and a burst of hydration and long-term skin-improving benefits help energize a tired, dull complexion to bring back its natural radiance. Apply as an illuminating moisturizer on bare skin or layered over skincare. Pat over foundation for a subtle glow. Can also be used on neck, shoulders and décolleté.
I think this is great for people who have less time in the morning (ME!). I apply this as a moisturizer/primer all in one. Really saves a lot of time! Thseeffects are glowy skin, think Mac Strobe cream. I also like the fruity scent.
Below are unblended and blended swatches.
Third, the Enriched Face Base.
A Bobbi Brown bestseller—a primer plus moisturization for smooth makeup application (it's the best of both worlds). Rich in feel, but never greasy, this advanced oil-free face formula, with Shea Butter, instantly hydrates, softens and cushions skin. This oil-free formula combines the moisturizing power of Shea Butter with Vitamins B, C and E. Grapefruit and Geranium fragrances leave a light, uplifting scent on skin. With daily use, skin looks and feels its best.
I think this is a staple in many people's routines. It's a cream that smooths out the skin so it can also act as a base as well. The texture is not too light and not too heave, but doesn't leave any oiliness or greasiness after it is absorbed. It also got a very relazing fruity scent. I believe many people also use this at night as well.
Next, I got a deluxe size of the Hydrating Eye Cream.
A quick-absorbing eye cream with moisturizers that melt onto the skin. This cult-favorite cream leaves the eye area soft, smooth, and refreshed. For anyone looking for a lightweight, soothing eye cream to wear on its own or layered under concealer for a flawless finish.
As I don’t normally use eye cream, I can’t really say how this compares to other brands. But I like the small and feel of the cream.
Lastly, the Bobbi's Remedies. You might wonder why it says "Superblends" on the bottle, but it's just some stupid Thai regulations that prevents the brand from using the word "Remedies" on a makeup product. So I went to a Bobbi Brown workshop for their new concealers and got to learn about their whole skin range, and recommendations for my skin. Since I have redness on my cheeks, I tried the Superblends (Remedy) Skin Soother in #80 with algae complex to help sooth the skin and calm redness. I cant believe it works! My red cheeks were immediately less red, like magic! I need to get this ASAP.
Here’s the bran'd’s claim:

Really, this little bottle can really reduce the redness on my cheeks like magic. I’m so hooked to this. Anyone with redness issue, I suggest you try this!
I also picked up Skin Reviver No.91 Power Greens Ferment. I use this when my skin is feeling dull.
When skin feels unhealthy, tired or damaged, this supercharged, antioxidant-rich remedy works to energize, replenish vital nutrients and protect skin from environmental aggressors. The result is a brighter, plumper and more refreshed complexion.
