I just saw the post for Best and Worst Tinted Moisturizers and thought of writing this post. The product is the Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15. I bought this somewhere in February and have been using it everyday since then, sometimes twice a day:D.
Let’s start with the review:

It is a decent-sized flip cap tube (I don’t know the exact term to describe it). It can fit in your travel or makeup kit easily.
About My Skin:
My skin its generally dry with oily T-zone (sometimes); overall clear skin tone but dark eye circles.
What I Like about Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15
This product with its emollient texture blends in very easily and gives me an even look by reducing the appearance of dark circles. It doesn’t feel cakey. There is no flaking and this moisturizer does not make the skin too oily, gives the feeling of not wearing anything on my face. This moisturizer gives a fresh look.
Most of the time, I just wear the tinted moisturizer and just the MAC Eye Kohl Smoulder with a little bit of powder to the lower eye to fix it and a lip gloss or nude lipstick.
Cons of Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15:
- It is expensive.
- Contains paraben.
I really liked the product and will buy it again next summer. For winters, I am eyeing the Bobbi Brown Tinted Balm.
