I am always on a lookout for good foundations as I really don’t like the “made-up” feel. I prefer my foundation to look really natural, almost like my second skin. I am glad I found my perfect day wear foundation, the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It is really lightweight, natural and dewy on my skin. Read the full review to know more.
Price: INR 4300 for 30 ml
This water-based, oil-free formula delivers undetectable coverage and a fresh, hydrated glow for the most natural skin-like finish. In addition to weightless, long-wearing coverage and hydration, the formula minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals imperfections, and delivers broad spectrum UV protection. Buildable formula goes easily from light to medium and is available in wide range of shades for all skin tones.
How to Use:
After moisturizing, apply with the Foundation Brush (sold separately) or fingers where needed to even out skin tone and cover imperfections. For complete coverage, dot foundation on nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin and blend out toward the hairline.
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15:
It comes in the classic glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottles in this range are neither too light nor too heavy. The weight is just right and you can travel with this bottle. I face just one issue with the bottle, i.e. the pump definitely gets a bit dirty as this foundation tends to stick to it. But then this is the case with every foundation.
The best part about this foundation is its texture. It’s really moisturising and imparts a really healthy glow to the skin. The texture is a bit towards the runny side, but it’s really smooth. The foundation is water-based and totally oil-free. I mainly got it because of how lightweight it feels on the skin. I can easily carry it around during the daytime.
It doesn’t feel heavy at all on the skin. In fact, it just instantly plumps up the skin, leaving it moisturised. It also adds just the perfect glow to the skin. I would say the product has sheer to medium coverage.
Also, a lot of shades in this range are yellow-based, which go perfectly with our Indian skin tones. This foundation is well suited for people who don’t have too much problematic skin. Why? Well, because it doesn’t conceal imperfections completely. So, it’s meant for someone who has next to flawless, non-problematic skin.
I love the feel of the product. It feels just like my second skin. It doesn’t look or feel as if you have applied anything on your skin. It makes your skin look naturally beautiful. I feel it’s perfect for day wear as it’s lightweight and lets your skin breathe. Also, it delivers broad spectrum UV protection, which is a must for daytime. So, you won’t have to apply a sunscreen when you have this foundation on.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15?
Yes, I would definitely recommend it those who are looking for very natural and less cakey look. Someone who prefers a little dewy skin and a fresh glow can definitely go for this foundation. I won’t repurchase it because I am sure this bottle will last me a really long time.
