It is just recently that I started taking care of my skin. Everyone seems to be becoming so advanced with their makeup and skincare. There is also a lot of fuzz about crystal clear skin. Not only adults, but even teenagers these days! Goodness! Whenever I scroll my Instagram page, I feel awful for not getting with the times and trying out all these trends. But things are now changing, and I am leveling up my game too!

On Instagram, I saw an amazing review for Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream. I was so impressed that I got one for myself. Ever since I got this cream, I have been using it as a committed devotee. This cream is expensive, so I’m very careful with it! Especially because the jar is glass. It will crush my heart if it falls and breaks. But then, the whole packaging looks elegant. The Bobbi Brown logo on the top of the black cap for me is the highlight of this product.

The texture looks creamy and thick in the container, but it actually feels very light on your face. The opening of the jar is smaller than the rest of the jar, so once the cream reaches the halfway point of the jar, it tends to get a little difficult to scoop out the cream. I used to use my fingertips to scoop out the cream, but now I use a spatula.

This cream is one cream to look out for. Even if it does not have sunblock, it can be used under any sunscreen easily. I use this face cream as a primer too, and it works just as well as any primer. It does not make my skin flaky or cakey. Instead, I am blessed with nourished and happy skin.

Try getting samples of it and see if it works for you.

PROS

Light texture

Moisturizes skin

Gets absorbed quickly

Just a little product required per use

CONS

Expensive

No visible results


I have been using this cream from Bobbi Brown for almost half a month, and I will say that this is an average moisturizing cream with a renowned brand tag. I don’t hate it, but I am not so hyped about it either.

Bobbi Brown is known for its amazing makeup, and they are amazing! So it is only natural that they’ll provide moisturizers that are makeup-friendly. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream is one of them.

Since I bought it , I have been using it under my makeup and also just on bare skin for a natural look. I have no complaints as such, but I feel like many other products will work just as well as this with a cheaper price-tag.

PROS

Non-greasy

Hydrates your skin

Makes your skin glow

Lightweight

CONS

Expensive


Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream is one of the lightest moisturizing cream I have ever come across. I was a bit threatened by it because I have dry skin. But once I applied it - the feel, the texture, the hydration, everything is on point.

I also like the fact that this cream does not make any high claims, which makes it a genuine product. I use it both as a day cream and night cream, and over the weeks I have used it, my skin feels healthy and has a faint glow. All that makes this cream worth it!

PROS

Non-greasy

Suitable for winters

Softens your skin

Improves your skin’s texture

CONS

No SPF


The Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream is not greasy or oily but gives the right amount of nourishment to my oily skin. During the winter, it is very confusing to choose a moisturizing cream for my skin. But ever since I started using this lightweight cream (which was last winter), my search and confusion has stopped. This cream has become my favorite winter moisturizer.
