Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base



I mentioned this product weeks ago in my Thursday's Fab Five, but now that my sample is 100% used up, I can give my full & honest review! 

As I mentioned in the Fab Five my summer job [travel camp] required me to be outside, alot.  So, I needed a strong SPF to get me through the day- and in walks the Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base!



This product protects against both UVA and UVB rays, while keeping your skin hydrated and smooth.  I still use my AM moisturizer before applying this, I really only think of this as my "sunscreen" layer.  I either follow up with my Smashbox Camera Ready SPF 35 BB Cream for some color, or just lightly dust some mineral powder to cover up any redness I typically have.  

This Protective Face Base basically acts like a primer, but with a high SPF content, so it's perfect when you know you'll be outside for an extended amount of time.  It's critical to be protected from UVA & UVB rays at all times!

I love that this product isn't greasy, which many SPF products can be- and it doesn't leave any type of white film on your face either.  Makeup applies very easily over it, which is obviously another huge plus.  If you're going to be out and about in the sun during this last summer month, I highly suggest this product.
