Bobbi Brown CC Cream - Review

When the whole BB and CC cream train came along I stayed with my feet firmly on the platform of the station, for two reasons. One, I didn’t really believe the whole one-billion-benefits-in-one-product shbang and two (mainly) I couldn’t find a bloody colour to match my skin tone. Seriously, maybe I didn’t look hard enough, I don’t know, but it seemed that every single one I swatched on the back of my hand dried with a slight ashy tinge. No bueno.

Enter Bobbi Brown. When I heard they were bringing out a new dark colour in their CC Cream, I was finally swayed to trying the whole alphabet cream phenomena out. Rich nude is a deep cocoa – I’d probably say slightly darker than my skin tone but a small blob blended out properly works well colour-wise. And overall, I have to say I’m impressed. It definitely has quite full coverage for a cream/non-foundation and does well in blurring imperfections as well as having the added benefit of UVA/UVB protection at a SPF of 35. While this level of protection seems a bit futile now – I mean, my little toes are close to frostbite – I literally know this is going to be the first thing I pack in my makeup bag for my summer holiday (come soon please?).

The Bobbi Brown CC Cream is £29 and available from
