PSA: The Vitamin Enriched Face Base Edition

by Hallie @ Moxie Wife on July 10, 2012

Knowing how very much I love mail and make-up, sweet-as-pie Jen sent me a present last week! One of the items she sent me was so intoxicatingly delicious that I couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you!

Now, before I go any further, I just have to warn you, the beauty product in question is kinda sorta crazy expensive. I don’t actually own any yet (Jen sent me an adorable sample size) but it’s definitely going on my birthday/Christmas/whatever lists.

So, what is this bit of goodness, you ask?

Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base

Here’s a brief description:

 

A Bobbi Brown Best-Seller. Bobbi recommends this as the first step to prepare skin for the smoothest makeup application. Rich in feel, but never greasy, this advanced oil-free, face formula, with Shea Butter, instantly hydrates, softens, and cushions skin. Carrot Extract and Vitamin A Complex help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamins C and E help protect against environmental damage. Grapefruit and Geranium fragrances leave a light, uplifting scent on skin. With daily use, skin looks and feels its best.

 

And here’s my take:

 

  • The scent is seriously one of the most delicious things I’ve ever smelled (truly, I’m not exaggerating). After I applied it my husband and daughter independently asked me what smelled so good.
  • It makes my skin feel so soft! I’ve only used it a few times but I already feel like I’ve just had a facial at some luxury spa.
  • My skin looks fantastic. Healthier, somehow. The imperfections are fading and it has this luminous quality to it. It’s pretty awesome.
  • When I apply the cream underneath my makeup, it makes for a super smooth application. It just kind of kicks everything up a notch. Or 50.
  • A little goes a very long way. So, though it’s pricey, I don’t think you would have to replace it very often at all.

 

So, yeah, it’s expensive–and I hesitated before blogging about it–but if you’re due for a treat or need a little pick-me-up, this stuff rocks.

 

Kisses!

Hallie

What type of skin do you have? Mine is super oily so I wonder if I would love this as much as you do.

My skin falls into the t-zone category. A bit oily on my chin, nose, and forehead. Normal everywhere else. I haven’t had any problem with applying it to the more oily spot on my face but you might want to ask a Bobbi Brown professional for her take. :)

I just used up some Omorovicza samples, and I’m in withdrawal. Maybe I’ll go browse Sephora online for this as a distraction!

I saw this on your Pinterest board yesterday and put it in my Amazon cart! It’s going to be my first reward for progress in various Healthy Habits (sleep, exercise, eating right). Can’t wait!
