Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm

If you have the right skin, this Tinted Moisturizing Balm can be a home run for you like it is for me.  I make the caveat of needing the right skin because the coverage is very light and the balm is super moisturizing.  I have dry skin in the winter and this winter seems especially bad – welcome to your 30s, I guess.  I prefer a light coverage because, frankly, I give up on covering up all my freckles (read: age spots). The finish takes all the red out of my skin and leaves it moisturized without being overly dewy. I love that it has a relatively high SPF built in. There is a strong fragrance – something like Thyme and Citrus.  I really like it but if you have a sensitive nose, make sure you smell before buying.  Also, the artist said “a little goes a long way”, probably to alleviate the pain of the $50 price tag.  I don’t think this is true, but the jar will last me well into the early spring. Also you can build the coverage but using a little bit more. I am using the light tint but it also comes in the following colors:

  • Alabaster
  • Extra Light Tint
  • Light Tint
  • Light To Medium Tint
  • Medium Tint
  • Medium To Dark Tint
  • Dark Tint
  • Deep Tint

I have fair skin so Alabaster and Extra Light are very, very light.
