Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier are my top two luxury department store brands which I can rarely afford to indulge in, so when the opportunity arose for me to purchase this much lusted after Bobbi Brown Face Base I practically ran down to House of Fraser after work.




Now before you go thinking I'm a big spender who can afford to pay £36 for what is essentially a glorified moisturiser, I'd just like to point out that I received a £25 House of Fraser voucher as a prize, so this pot of gloriousness only set me back £11!

I owned this years ago in Australia when I was in my early twenties and a bit more of a grease ball than I am now and found it a little two heavy then for my face (and the Queensland climate), but now that I'm knocking on the door of the big 28 and living through dehydrating winters I will take whatever moisture I can get!

Vitamin Enriched Face Base is a primer and moisturiser in one with a super thick, melting texture and a beautiful Vitamin C like scent to match the yellowy-orange colour of the cream.








This gorgeously thick face base is excellent as a nourishing, skin loving moisturiser thanks to the shea butter, carrot and vitamin C and E components and makes a fantastic pre-makeup primer, smoothing the skin and readying it for foundation.

Even though shea butter is a main ingredient in the cream, it's an oil-free formula. I'm not 100% how this works since I equate butter with oil but I do know that the face base leaves my skin glowing and dewy rather than with an oily sheen.
At £36, this is definitely a treat product to me but there's a lot to love with this product - the smell, the texture, the feel of it on my face, the lovely glass jar, the Bobbi Brown logo on the lid...
If you see this, give it a whiff and try some on your hand, if you're anything like me you're bound to fall for it fast.

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is £36 at House of Fraser , www.bobbibrown.co.uk and other department stores.

  3. I heard Jeffree Star talk about this on his channel and he says it is suitable for oily skin as well but I am not sure after reading your review whether it would work for my oily-combination skin! Gorgeous photos.
