I reckon I’ve teased you for long enough about the Bobbi Brown BB Cream. I’ve been using this one off and on for a couple of months since I picked it up from KLIA before my Seoul trip. It would seem a little odd picking up a BB Cream before heading to the land of BB Creams but then I’m perverse like that 😛
Let’s just start by saying that I do not subscribe to the BB Cream all-in-one theory. I use BB Creams as foundation never in place of sunscreen and moisturizer. Hence, I treat this as makeup not as a skincare-makeup hybrid. Its important to get that out of the way because I know a lot of people treat BB Creams as an all-in-one product which they are marketed as, but I just want to make it clear that I don’t so I use all my regular skincare and sunscreen before applying BB Cream.
Here’s one thing I like about the Bobbi Brown BB Cream even before I tried it – it comes in 3 shades – Extra Light, Light and Medium. I think that is very wise, because there is no such thing as one shade fits all. However, darker skinned ladies might still have a problem finding a colour match because even Medium is quite fair as colours go. I take it in Extra Light which is about right for my skintone. Its not really super light, as the swatches below will tell you.
