Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF35.

I am still completely enamored with BB Creams. Offering more than a tinted moisturizer with less coverage than foundation, these creams have taken over my vanity this summer.  I love that I don't have to pile on the products to get the skin care benefits I need, with the lighter coverage I welcome in the warmer months. I have waited for Bobbi Brown's BB Cream, because I am such a fan. I am happy to say that Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF35 was worth the wait.

Bobbi’s new BB Cream is a skin care/makeup hybrid that combines moisturizer, treatment, SPF and foundation all-in-one. Plus, this unique skin tone correct formula leaves skin looking flawless and perfectly natural. Over time it provides long-term benefits too. Skin is brighter, more even; fine lines are diminished; reduced redness is reduced and pores are minimized. The SPF boosts the formula with daily protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays and environmental hazards, which is extremely important for daily wear.

From very fair to very deep, Bobbi has us covered as there are five skin forgiving shades.

  • Extra Light
  • Light
  • Fair
  • Medium
  • Medium to Dark

I have been using this for a few weeks and it is my new go to. I like to apply it simply with my fingers. The formula feels a bit thick at first, so I like to spread it on the back of my hand to warm it up, but as soon as I put it on, it feels light-weight and blends really easily. If I want more coverage in a certain area, I just dot on a bit more and blend away - it does so seamlessly. The look is smooth and very natural. I am using the shade Medium and it is a great match for a bit tanned NC30 skin tone.

Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF35 sells for $42.00, and is available at all Bobbi counters and online at bobbibrowncosmetics.com now.

I am so excited after visit your product. I want to buy this BB Cream but i want to know when i use BB Cream??
Finally she made a BB Cream. Excited to try it.
Going to check out some fall beauty this weekend and hopefully can snag a sample.
Ayisha - You can use a BB Cream right after skin care, as you would your foundation. Or you can use it in addition to your skin care, and use this as you would foundation. If you have normal to oily skin, then you could mostly get away with just using the BB Cream as your skin care and foundation. Those with more dry skin, like me, usually need to use a BB Cream in addition to skin care.
Yes, Sharon! I was excited when I first heard about it too.
Let me know how you like it Kristie!
I just bought mine. I got the medium. I thought i would need fair but it was a bit too pink for me. This one is great for my skin tone.
I look forward to try this. Happy to see a nice SPF, many of the BB Creams I try have like SPF15 or SPF20 which doesn't work for me all day. I find I need at least SPF30, so I am really hopeing I like this.
Hi Brenda! I think that most people will need medium. I think it is more like a light-medium shade, becasue it is on the lighter side. Glad to hear you purchased. Do you like it?
Ms. Jackie! I love the high SPF in the BB Cream too. It is essential!
I can't wait to try this. A little corrector, a little concealer and this will work wonders; I am just sure of it. Thanks for featuring!!!
I use Bobbi Brown's tinted oil free moisturizer in Rich tint. I couldn't wait for the BB creme to come in so that I could purchase it. Well finally it came to my store!! This morning I rushed out to purchase the product and boy was I disappointed that the color range is very limited for darker tones. The darkest BB creme was far too light for me.
I am so sorry to hear that Myra. I am using the Medium Shade which is a good match for my NC 30 skin. I am guessing Medium-Dark is good for NC 40, which I realize is not all that dark. All I can guess, is that if these products are best-sellers, many of them will soon offer extended shade ranges. I hope so anyway!
