Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base
A positive result
I became aware of this cream when a helpful Bobbi brown consultant in john lewis gave me a good make over when I was deciding on which foundation I needed and recommended this cream for use before applying and her persuasive manner worked and I purchased it to see if it really worked and since last year when I first used it I haven't stopped and must admit and would recommend that it is a good cream and gives your skin a fresh and soft feel.

breaks me out
I have combination skin,with dry cheeks and oily t-zone.
I have used this cream on and off for over 5 months now and I have to say that it definitely breaks me out. Every time I use it the next day I have a spot coming up. I find it to be very heavy and leaves my skin oily, just doesn't suit my skin type. Also the smell is not great, just smells like perfume, or artificially enhanced ti smell that way... just as one may expect from face creams anyway. But the downside I find the worst is that despite using a primer the makeup does not stay on for long, it slides off the face much faster than if I were to use a moisturizer from old good aveeno or olay for combo skin. This cream has not convineced me at all.I may use it as a night cream or maybe or my hands... not sure how to use it now. Shame!

I bought this for my partner and when it was opened as a gift I heard the sigh of pleasure as the cream was soothed over the face to moisturise and re-hydrate the skin...
this is truely an exceptional product of excellent quality the smell is subtle and beautiful the rich but not oily cream melts into the skin to provide a base coat to place your next layers upon.
buy and enjoy this product yourself or as a gift for a loved one as a treat

The perfect face base
I was introduced to this product last year by a close friend. I had commented how lovely her skin looked. I immediatey visited my nearest John Lewis and purchased a jar. I am now using my second purchase. I full recommend this product.

This face base has a refreshing smell to it and makes the skin look fantastic. It also helps your makeup stay in place all day. I tried using up some old moisturiser but my face didn't look as radiant as when I use this. Will stick with this from now on

Smells simply divine
I've been using this product for over 2 years now and love the effect on my skin. Despite my skin being combination (dry cheeks and REALLY oily forehead) it doesn't overwhelm my skin and the smell is wonderful but not 'girly'. I even managed to persuade my husband to use some whilst on holiday recently as his skin was drying out! I spend a lot of time outside each day and know that not only is this cream protecting my skin from the elements, but it is also nourishing it too.

Ticks all the boxes !
I love the light, creamy consistency of this product which is quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving no greasy residue. A truly good treatment for my face whilst acting as a perfect base for my make-up.I think this is the answer to my prayer ! Thank you Bobbie Brown.
