Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Moisturiser provides light moisture, sheer coverage and sun protection in one. It comes in a oil free and non oil free formula. I tried the oil free version, which is gel-based, as I have a combination skin type (the oil free version is ideal for combination and oily skin types; if you have a dry to normal skin type you would be better off with
Bobbi Brown’s non oil-free SPF 15 Tinted Moisturiser which contains
skin-conditioning Jojoba Oil to leave skin feeling soft and supple). Vitamins C and E protect skin from free radical damage, while SPF 15 helps prevent sun damage. So if you want to protect your skin in the sun whilst giving your skin a light makeup coverage, Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Moisturiser may be just the product for you. It comes in 7 shades from Extra Light to Dark – I tried the Light to Medium Tint.
The first thing I noticed about the tinted moisturiser is its lovely fresh scent. I applied the tinted moisturiser with my hand but you could use a foundation brush. It is very light-weight and glides on smoothly; it provides great coverage for a tinted moisturiser. Often tinted moisturisers can be very fluid in consistency and too light in coverage but Bobbi Brown’s is almost creamy in texture and a pleasure to apply. In giving such good coverage only a small amount of product is needed which means it should last a long time. The colour is also lovely and very natural.
So it looked good on application but how did it withstand the day – outside? Well, I’m pleased to say that after a few hours my skin still looked well-covered and shine-free and by the end of the day the product had faded but not completely disappeared. It kept my skin remarkably well matified and I didn’t even have any breakthrough shine in the heat. Yet, it didn’t dry my skin out like some oil-free products and actually is quite conditioning.
Price & Packaging
A simple and modern black squeezy tube with white writing. The packaging feels of very high quality.
Priced at £27 this is quite pricey but given that it is more than just a light foundation – a tinted moisturiser with SPF protection – it’s not bad value. It is also a 50ml tube (many other brand’s are 30ml) and a little goes a long way.
