Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35

I bought the Bobbi Brown BB cream at the start of the summer because I was looking for something that would be easy for days off work, quick to apply with fingers and with a higher sun protection than what's found in standard foundations. I was also after something with a little bit of cover; not quite as sheer as traditional tinted moisturisers so this seemed fairly ideal.

It's a thick cream consistency so a pea sized amount is enough but it blends out really easily. The SPF 35 is brilliant for what I need on a daily basis although I'd add a proper sun cream underneath if I was going to be outside in the sun for an entire day. It provides a nice bit of cover, similar to that of any light foundation which I was impressed with and it gives a satin finish. It basically just looks like my skin but better and healthier! I do still add concealer and a bit of translucent powder.

I got the shade Light for reference but there's a good number of shades to choose from. It costs €37 and contains 40ml so a bit more than your standard 30ml bottle of foundation. I'd definitely recommend checking it out if you're into BB creams and/or light foundations.

A favourite look lately - matte browns on the eyes paired with a strong lip. Simple but I love how classic it is and it's one that suits a lot of people. It can be paired with almost any lip colour too so really versatile!
