Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm is a lightweight foundation-moisturizer that nourishes your skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. The broad spectrum of SPF 25 helps to protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays and dehydration. It is enriched with an Argireline peptide that boosts the skin's natural collagen production and clary sage ferment that strengthens the skin's protective moisture barrier. The water-in-oil emulsion creates a rich and emollient balm texture that promotes immediate and long-term moisturization. It comes in a glass jar with a black screw lid.

This Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm is the most expensive moisturizer/foundation I ever purchased. To buy this moisturizer balm, I had to sacrifice several other products I normally use. For example, I had to say goodbye to my setting spray and primer. I was praying this moisturizing balm will be worth it.
The thick and creamy texture looks very alluring, and it suits my dry skin very well. I use this moisturizer daily, and since it is in a glass jar, I take extra precautions. I dip the corner of a fresh makeup sponge into the jar and scoop out a pea-sized amount. Then I wipe it on the back of my hand. I start dabbing the moisturizer all over my face and neck, taking the moisturizer from the back of my hand and start blending. It melts into my fine wrinkles but does not dry or clog my pores or flake like the other products I have used so far did.
I am in love with it because it gives me a nice even tone finish. The shade Alabaster thankfully suits me very well. The only problem I have with it is the smell comes out a bit too strong while applying it. That is resolved after a few minutes of application. It would have been perfect if it was fragrance-free.
The cost is a little high, but since just a few amounts are required to cover my whole face, I'm sure it will last for a long time. Did I say that I am in love with it? Yes, and I say it again. It is such a relief that my sacrifices were worth it. I am in love with it!

Gives a no-makeup look
Can be built up
Does not settle on fine lines
I don’t use Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm daily because of the price I paid for it. I am not complaining, but, it is almost like a treasure. So, I use it only on special occasions. Whenever I want a no-makeup look, I go for this. And even when I want a heavy makeup look, I use this. The best thing about it is, Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm can be built up.
On days when it is very humid, I pat my face with loose powder, and I am good as new. I will highly recommend this to everyone.

Gives good coverage
Thick creamy consistency
Does not get absorbed
Not suitable for very dry skin
This cream is nice and thick, but I don't feel like it gets absorbed into my skin. I have extremely dry skin, and during winter, this product is off limits. So I think I made a very expensive mistake.
After reading the reviews, I’m going to use it over a serum or another moisturizer. Let’s just hope it works, and I don’t feel heavy. Either way, I won’t be repurchasing it after I am done with this jar.

Has sun protection
Gives decent coverage
Not for oily skin
Effect lasts for 4-5 hours only
Honestly, I didn’t think this product was worth it. I say this because I was expecting tinted moisture, which will be light, and I will be able to use it on days when I don’t feel like using makeup. But then, it made my skin oily and greasy after four to five hours. It is also easily transferable. Such a disappointment!

There are no side effects reported yet. But be aware of the fact that everyone reacts differently to different products. If you are one of the unfortunate ones to experience any negative reactions, see a doctor and report it immediately, especially if the effect stays for a long time.
Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm is not like a typical foundation that has to match with your skin tone. Since this Bobbi Brown moisturizing balm is lightweight, it blends easily, and even if the color is a bit off, it will blend in well. So, go for a shade that is close to your skin tone.
Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm will work well only if you have dry to very dry skin during humid season. Since it is a rich foundation plus moisturizer, there are chances it will cause greasiness. If you have normal to oily skin, either use a setting powder along or skip it entirely.
