It is once again time for another first impressions post. This month it is the turn of a product that has been sitting on my side for nearly a year and that is the Bobbi Brown, Vitamin Enriched Face Base. So, let’s do this!
First, I feel like I should explain. Last autumn I brought myself one of the Estee Lauder breast cancer campaign charity box thing. In case you haven’t heard of this basically it is a little box that contains a selection (around 8) high end beauty products in travel/sample sizes. It costs around £25-£30 and £15 of that goes direct to breast cancer research. This was the first time I brought the box although I will probs be buying it again in the future. I will admit that it is now august and I am only just starting to use the products…. mainly because I forgot that I brought it, whoops. So, over the next few months expect a few first impressions posts for some more high-end products. So today I am talking all about the first product in the box that I have tried, the Bobbi Brown, Vitamin Enriched Face Base.
I have mixed feelings about this one. I like it, but I don’t love it. it is a strange consistency. It is a very dense cream, almost like a body butter, but then when you start to work it, actually as soon as you try to pick up some product, it turns into a really thin, watery cream…. if that makes sense. It instantly melts. Which I am torn between that being a good or bad thing. It means that it is really difficult to get an amount of the product from the pot and onto your face. Once it is there though it is nice. It leaves your skin feeling very smooth and plum. And makes it look very flawless. It minimises pores and blemishes, evens out the skin surface and does all of that good stuff.
It is a good primer and it does have a moisturizing element to it, but I don’t think it is worth the £43 price tag. it isn’t that much better than highstreets, £6 primer’s that I have used in the past. £43 is way too much money to spend on a primer for me. I usually refuse to pay more than £15 for any cosmetic product. it is good, but I will not buy it. Have you used this product? what do you think about it? I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon
