Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm Review

Bobbi brown SPF25 tinted moisturising balm

Claims : A lightweight foundation alternative for dry, dehydrated skin, this formula is ultra-rich, and blends easily, giving skin a dewy look with light coverage. SPF 25 helps protect skin against damaging UVA/B rays. Dermatologist tested.

Price : It costed me around Rs 3,000 but it would be priced differently at different places. On website it says $50, which would be around Rs 2,250 for 30 ml product.

A few points to note :

  • This tinted moisturiser is suited only for dry to very dry skin. If you have normal, combination or oily skintype, don’t bother about picking up.
  • I have dry to very dry skin so I am heads over heels in love with it.
  • It gives sheer coverage. If you like your base product to provide you with good coverage , this might not be for you.
  • The shade I picked up is Medium to Dark tint.

Comes in a glass pot and has this little partition cap on top of it.

What I like about Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm

  • The texture is so creamy and it glides on like a dream. I apply it with my fingers to spread the the balm on my face and neck and my base makeup is dine within seconds. It also great forΒ  mature skin.
  • This moisurizing balm gives you ” my-face-but-better” kind of finish . It looks very dewy so I set it with powder to reduce the dewyness. I am all for dewy look but this is a little too much.
  • It amazing how well it stays on all day long.
  • It is very hydrating.
  • You barely need a pea sized amount to your full face and neck so this would last me for quite long.
  • Excellent product for winters. It is amazingly emollient.
  • Despite being so creamy, it does not feel heavy at all.
  • Never ever settles in fine lines or looks cakey. If you like natural looking skin, this is definitely a product for you. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines.
  • You have 8 shades to choose from. but this is the kind of product where a shade lighter or darker would not matter much. So you’d definitely be able to find one for your skin tone.

What I don’t like about Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm

  • I barely ever talk about price in my reviews but this is VERY expensive for what it is. I totally love the finish of this tinted moisturizing balm .Β  Also, the fact that you do get a lot of product in the jar but for a tinted moisturiser it is too over priced.
  • It has that vicks sort of smell. It does fade away within seconds but it might bother a few people.
  • It comes in a bulky glass jar so you have to be careful with storing it. Forget about carrying with you anywhere.
  • It is very hydrating but you cannot skip a moisturiser.
  • You have to massage this product in your skin, just like you’d massage a balm. Or else it would just sit on top of you skin. Trust me, not good!
  • Not available in India.

Overall, I guess it has an equal share of its pros and cons. I do think it is quite a replaceable product. In fact, you can make one at your homeΒ  by mixing ultra moisturizing cream and a hint of foundation.

I do loveeee it a lot but I may not repurchase it. It was an impulse buy and I definitely do not regret picking it up. πŸ˜‰
