Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation
I purchased this on the recommendation of a Bobbi Brown staff member in the Welwyn store as my Bobbi Brown stick foundation was proving a bit dry for my skin. This smells lovely and is really smooth. It's taken a few goes to get the coverage right and I have had a couple of spots while my skin is getting used to it but it's a lovely product.
The reason for the 4 stars is the fact there is no way to easily dispense this, you kind of have to poor a bit out and I got too much the first few times - and if I do this too early in the morning when I'm tired. A little pump action top would be so much better to ensure this lasts as long as it should and there is no waste as it is quite expensive.

Great coverage, natural look
I use a stippling brush to put this on. I don't find that I need much and use the creamy concealer kit to sort out blemishes and circles under my eyes. I finish off with a bit of powder. The bottle has lasted several months, so I think it has been good value. My face lasts all day with just a bit of powder on my nose later in the day to take off my shine. It takes me not much more than 5 minutes in the morning to do that bit.
Makeup used to fall off my face; I wasn't sure if it was because I was too dry or too oily. In the end I think it was because I was too dry and my skin was desperately trying to make up for it. This foundation tries to keep the moisture in and does a pretty good job. It's the best I've found yet (believe me, I've tried several).
I usually like to mix up my products rather than sticking to one brand, but I've been so impressed with BB, plus it's handy that the colours across the range are exactly the same, that I find myself having more and more of it. And here I am on JL's website ordering more! Still, it's nice to be complimented by other women about my perfect makeup and asked how I make it stay on all day! That's never happened before.

shame about the bottle
I love the foundation but the bottle leaks. I have had several and they are all the same. Why can't this be in a pump bottle like the other Bobbi Brown products? It would be 5 stars if it didn't make such a mess in my make up bag!

My favourite foundation
I love this foundation and have been using it ever since I discovered it about 3 years ago. I have a pale complexion and the porcelain is a great match. It applies smoothly and lasts well throughout the day. It covers well enough to provide good coverage but without looking unnatural. It also lasts until the end of the bottle and doesn't go thick. I highly recommend this product.

Just the best!
I have tried just about every foundation going and although I take really good care of my skin, it does have a tendency to be a little on the dry side and therefore make-up seems to go really patchy particularly on my nose. However, this problem has vanished after using this foundation. It goes on so evenly, doesn't sink into fine lines and lasts all day easily. It has a really dewy youthful finish and a pleasant smell. I have also tried the extra repair foundation and if you like a really good coverage then I would go for that one, however, moisture rich also gives good coverage without making you look too 'made-up' it's perfect for me and I'm sticking with it. I am now converted for life! Thanks Bobbi!

Go to Peter Jones (John Lewis) store in Slone Sq, London
My wife wanted to upgrade make up from a standard high street shop brand to something else. She wanted the new make up for Christmas and being her husband I didnt stand a chance. I booked her in instead for a consulatation with the Bobbi Brown counter in John Lewis ( Peter Jones) and she loved the experience. They tried all sorts on her to see what suited her skin tone and colour and recommended a wish kist for me to purchase on her behalf. Great way to get out of a sticky situation. Highly recommend. The product lasts much longer than her previous brand and she will never now go back

Top notch foundation
I too used to change foundations often trying to find the right one. However, I have been using this for 6 years now and will never change. The foundation covers evenly, feels light and blends well with my skin leaving no foundation line. I advise going into a store first of to get the right tone for your skin as I did that and also bought the brush to go with it. I had never applied foundation with a brush before that and will never apply without the brush. A really great product. Its kind to my face and as i have sensitive skin i need that, I'd recommend Bobbi Brown moisture rich foundation to everyone.
