We are back with another review post and this time we are reviewing Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35. Check out our other review posts like Forest Essentials Hand Pounded Organic Fruit Scrub Review and Ang-Tatva – 100% Organic Skincare Review. Bobbi Brown has a elaborate collection of skincare and makeup products. While we have not tried all of them, we loved most of them. Let’s go through this post to see if their BB cream with SPF 35 is one of those loved products.
BB creams in general are moisturizers with some properties of foundations especially color tint. These creams are great for everyday use as they work in multiple ways – moisturizing, acting as sheer to medium coverage foundation, sunblock etc. Not all BB creams have the same properties but moisturizing and providing coverage form their base recipe.

Bobbi Brown BB Cream is also a multi functional product. The best part is it comes with SPF which means no need of wearing sunscreen underneath. Let us get into details of different aspects of this BB cream.
The packaging of this product is rather straight and simple. It comes in a sleek black colored tube packaging. Not a lot of product is dispensed on a gentle pressure. This means you can totally control the amount you want to take out. The size of the tube is compact enough to be packed for travel and will not leak if closed properly.
The texture of the product is smooth and creamy. It is definitely not runny in consistency like a foundation. The consistency rather resembles a rich moisturizer, somewhat between lotion and balm.
It comes with quite a good shade range with 9 shades (8 in India) ranging from extra light to Rich. This sure is a good range for a BB cream. Everyone should be able to find a shade matching their skin. Along with shades, the undertones are also considered which is a plus.
Application and Look
The application is rather smooth. You can use a sponge, brush or even your hands to evenly apply it all over your face. It gives sheer to medium coverage with a classy non-cakey matte finish. This cream is great for oily to normal skin type. It keeps the oils at bay and preserves that matte look for long. For dry skin, apply a rich moisturizer underneath and you’re good to go. Again, having SPF is a plus so you don’t have to wear an extra layer of sunscreen.
I pair this BB cream with bit of concealer and some loose setting powder and it gives that even second skin finish! I don’t even mind wearing it to a party or a girls day out simply because it stays all day long without caking up and looks fabulous till the end.
While it is a great product, it does gives flashbacks in pictures taken in dark or low light. Your face may look on the white side in pictures with this cream on but that should happen only in low light settings. Also, it retails for 47 USD, does seem a little pricey for the amount that you receive even though it is a luxury brand.
To Sum up, lets go over quick pros and cons
Finally, for our final thoughts, we love this product and despite the cons, we do think it is a must try. It is multitasking product and gives a beautiful skin like finish for that everyday look. If you do try it out, we would love to know how you liked it.
Stay flawlessly beautiful!
