I mentioned in a recent blog post that I was looking to try some new makeup products from certain brands and one of them was Bobbi Brown. A few weeks ago I decided to pay a visit to my local store which actually worked out pretty well for me as they were running a 20% off deal on any item you purchased that day. I ended up walking away with the Vitamin Enriched Face Base which is raved about by everyone and is something that I've wanted to try for years!
bobbi brown vitamin enriched face base review
It retails at £43 for 50ml which is pretty pricey for a primer but I definitely think it's worth considering if you're into high-end products. The packaging is very luxurious and it looks gorgeous on my desk and in my makeup bag. 

When I first heard about this product I wasn't sure how best to use it but I think it depends on your skin type. If you're fairly oily you can use this as a moisturiser to hydrate the skin and help your makeup last longer or if you have a drier skin, it works perfectly as a pre-foundation base. It has a rich, creamy texture but it doesn't feel heavy or clogging which I love. It's formulated with Shea Butter to moisturise and soothe, Vitamins B, C and E and has a lovely fresh/fruity scent. After applying my skincare routine I massage a 5p sized amount into my face focusing on the dry areas such as my forehead and around my nose. It absorbs like a dream and it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth. Foundation sits beautifully on top of this and it also helps it last a lot longer and stops it going patchy throughout the day. 

I'm so glad I finally decided to try this as it's exactly what my dry skin needs right now! If your foundation isn't sitting perfectly or you're in the market for a new primer, I would highly recommend checking this out! 

Have you tried this primer? What are your thoughts?
