Questions & Answers for Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

Question
Is this a moisturizer or a primer?
Should we skip moisturizer if we are using this. Or should we skip the primer for using this?

Does it moisturize enough for combination/oily skin (my skin is not too oily but does breakout every now and then)

I use this as both moisturizer and primer for most days and my makeup lasts all day on my oily skin.

Primer is built into all Bobbi's moisturizers. You're good to apply makeup after this moisturizer!

This can be used alone or with a moisturizer. I do both depending on the day. (i have combo skin) It helps to make foundation go on more smoothly. It does have a great scent. I usually prefer no scent, but I like this.

This is a moisturizer and face primer in one. This is one of my favorite moisturizers by Bobbi Brown. It keeps my skin hydrated without looking or feeling greasy and keeps my makeup in place all day. A jar typically lasts me 2-3 months. (and that's using it once a day in the morning) If you buy this and use it and find that it is leaving your skin greasy then trust and believe me when I say, you are using too much. I find that this works great on people who are breakout prone with no issues. And it smells amazing!

I have combination skin and can be prone to breakouts too. This did not make me break out. However, I would recommend this more as a moisturizer for combo skin, and not so much as a primer. Even using a very small amount, I can tend to get a bit greasy with just this alone. It is smoothing and makes my skin feel great, but I use a mattifying primer over it if I'm going to apply makeup. So: for combo skin, I would say good day cream [except no SPF] but not necessarily good primer. Hope that helps!

I meant to say that this is a moisturizer and/or a primer! Use it for either.

This is a creamy, non-greasy moisturizer. I would say it's for any skin. I have normal to combination and works great for mine. You can also use it as a primer - I do and it works perfect.

The scent is not overpowering and not perfumy. It is floral and natural, but it is noticeable.

ingredients list
I'm interested in this product, but my skin reacts badly to "cones", all the silicones. Can anyone provide an ingredient list?

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Bis-Diglycerl Polyacyladipate-2, Butylene Glycol, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Cetyl Alcohol, PEG-40 Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Squalene, Glyceryl Stearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Epilobium Angustifolium Extract, Yeast Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root, Retinyl Palmitate, Beta-carotene, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit California), Tocopheryl Acetate, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, C12-15 Alkyl Octanoate, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Carbomer, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Sodium Carbomer, Tetrasodium EDTA, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Limonene, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.

So, it does look like there's at least "dimethicone crosspolymer" in it.

(I tried to keep typos to a minimum, but with words like "cyclopentasiloxane," I make no guarantees.)

Hi, I'm not sure about cones.
However, I have super sensitive skin and I cannot use just ANY foundation on my face. When I had exczma I used this and my skin actually healed afterward. However, it is quite oily even though it-says "oil free". I suggest you go in to a Sephora or Nordstrom counter and get a sample before you purchase, as it is quite pricey.

Good luck!

As far as I know, there are no "cones" in this product but I would suggest calling BB Customer Service 1-877-310-9222 for the ingredient list. They're VERY helpful.

It appears to contain retinyl palmitate, which is considered unsafe in general but especially during pregnancy.

I have acne prone skin, and i do use this product. It is a thicker moisturizer or 'base'.... i dont use it in the summer when i am oily, but use it more when my face is dry or peeling in the winter or if it gets irritated from acne face products. I dont break out from it....but it can be heavy if/when your face is oily. Hope that helps!

For me, it does replace moisturizer on days when I'm wearing foundation. I use it in place of both moisturizer and primer.
