Bobbi Brown Makati moved to a bigger and better location at Rustan’s Grand Mall in Glorietta Makati. I went there last Saturday to check it out and witness their resident Trainer, Noel Subade demonstrate their “Secret to Perfect Skin Lesson” featuring the Bobbi Brown BB Cream.
BB cream is inspired by a skincare/makeup hybrid which is so popular because it combines a moisturizer, treatment, Broad Spectrum SPF and a lightweight foundation in one. The problem with most BB Creams is that the tint is too light on my skin. I liked that the Bobbi Brown BB cream comes in various shades in the Philippine market:
Medium to Dark
The US market provides 9 skin tones for a wider range of skin tones.
The skin tone correct shades were carefully formulated by Bobbi herself. It provides an in-between skin perfecter for normal to oily skin and also creates a smooth canvas for flawless foundation application and fights shine to give a natural-looking matte finish. Many women may consider BB creams as their skin’s new best friend.
I gathered that this BB formula combines water-attracting molecules to boost hydration, light-reflective pearls to brighten dull skin, botanical extracts and caffeine to reduce discoloration and redness, pore-refining peptides such as Argireline Peptide to minimize fine lines and fight wrinkles, and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with SPF 35 and antioxidants to fend off future damage.
My skin is kinda yellowish tones so I was either medium or natural. The stylist tried the natural skin tone on me. It was perfect and looked so natural (no pun intended). The 35 SPF is an adequate coverage but for my age , I need a higher SPF of 50.
I swear the BB cream applied so smoothly on my face and feels so natural looking. I can wear it as sheer or apply full coverage on my dark spots since it builds up very well.
There were customers who passed by to watch the demo. Their tips are so useful. I learned some really good tips a few months back on how makeup merely enhances the beauty inside.
Too bad I was unable to have my photo taken after the application so I hope this selfie will do. I love the oh- soo natural look.
