Product Description

What it is:

See healthy, beautiful skin. Formulated with Lychee, Bamboo Grass and Cordyceps Mushroom extracts, this high-powered formula helps give skin the energy it needs to look fresher and younger. Super silky emulsion floats over skin's surface for a flawless yet natural look–instantly and day after day. 

Why It's Different:

Goes beyond the surface, beautifying skin with a powerful combination of serum ingredients. Helps support skin's cellular energy and also offers key anti-aging benefits for a smoother, firmer, more lifted look. Ultrafine pigments cover imperfections without settling into fine lines. Plus, SPF helps prevent future damage.

Who It's For:

For anyone who wants the treatment benefits of a serum combined with the flawless, skin tone correct coverage of Bobbi Brown foundations. Ideal for normal to dry skin.

How to Use:

First, shake bottle well. To use the dropper properly, ensure it is completely inserted into the bottle. Pinch bulb and release. Remove dropper and pinch gently to dispense desired amount of product onto hand or brush. Remember, a little goes a long way. Apply foundation around the nose and mouth, and anywhere you see redness or unevenness. Blend with a Foundation Brush, sponge or fingertips.

💥 First of all, the packaging is enthralled. A heavy glass bottle of black color, which does not let light (this allows the medium to retain its qualities longer) makes it clear that I have a luxury product in my hands.
"I like the medium to be pipetted, it is very convenient and it doses the product.
Although this may be repelled by many.
Serum is incredibly high for decorative cosmetics SPF. 40 !!! Not every uvhod cream can boast of this.
An excellent option for the summer, as well as for those who for some reason do not like to use the screen.
💥 The smell of this tonal remedy is simply incredible. Something so grassy and natural, very adult and solid.
💥All thanks to the composition. The agent was called serum for a reason, it really combines the ideal coverage and care.
The first place in the composition is occupied by octinoxate, which is often used in protection against ultraviolet radiation. It is followed by titanium dioxide - also a filter. In addition, the serum contains zinc oxide, a variety of fruit and vegetable extracts (bamboo extract, seaweed extract), lavender oil, amino acids, natural marine enzymes and even cordyceps fungi. These mushrooms are used in Chinese medicine and have a rejuvenating and toning effect.
Agree, after this you can forgive this tonal serum for this price.

Review for: Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 Cool Sand - Pack of 6 more...
I feel like this foundation is very underrated/ not talked about enough. It is perfect for dry skin, and has beneficial treatment ingredients as well. It leaves a dewy finish that looks so beautiful and natural. This foundation had lasted me for the past year!

This product is okay. It's very lightweight and sheer coverage. It is also very easy to blend. If your skin has no imperfection, this is a great foundation for you. However, the smell is something I really don't like. It is very strong and herb-like smell. Also, packaging is nice but very messy to get the product out since there is a dropper instead of a pump. I always have to clean around the opening each time I use it.

Review for: Cool Ivory more...
I love this foundation! It offers slightly more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. I like that because it evens out my skin tone, let’s my freckles show & looks natural. The fact that it has a 40 spf & serum in it is an amazing bonus. Like others said, the packaging is annoying. I find the best way to dispense is to put it on a beauty blender.

This is a wonderful foundation. I'm a lover of all Bobbi Brown products and this is no exception. I love that it is a skincare-foundation hybrid. It gives me a dewy complexion with natural coverage that leaves my skin looking like skin (only better). Price is a bit steep but it's worth it

Review for: Warm Sand more...
Definitely one of my favorite dewy foundations ever!! It's amazing, best for combination or dry skin since it is dewy. It's very easy to apply, goes on smooth and finishes nicely. Lasts all day, and longer with primer! Would hands down recommend to all beauty buyers :)

This is a great product. It goes on very smooth. I love the feel of the my skin after I put it on. Its a full coverage and long lasting foundation. The pros are it has SPF included. One less step to worry about .

Review for: Bobbi Brown INTENSIVE SKIN SERUM FOUNDATION SPF 40 (natural) more...
This is seriously the best foundation I have found, but I’m so picky that I still don’t give it 5 stars. It’s fairly long lasting, great for dry skin, and medium coverage. I will keep on buying this even though it really is fairly expensive.

Review for: Beige more...
I would actually give this 3.5 stars if I could. I like the packaging because it’s a heavy bottle that comes with a dropper. However it does ooze out of the top rim and I have to clean it which gets annoying. I actually like the smell of this from the oils that are in the foundation. It feels light weight on my skin and gives me a really dewy and glowy finish; I have gotten compliments about how glowy it is. It is somewhat buildable but I believe it is more of a lighter coverage. However I knocked off stars because I don’t think this foundation lasts that long. I have tried using several different primers, both high end and drugstore, and I noticed it tends to separate out on my skin faster than other foundations I have tried. I have dry/combo skin. I work long hours at work and by the end of my shift I can see the foundation has become patchy. This is also quite expensive for a foundation. For the price and how it eventually looks on my skin, I don’t know if I would purchase this again.

I really like this foundation for winter time, but it is a bit hard to work with. I find it best if applied with fingers honestly than brush or sponge/blender. It needs time to settle, and definitely apply some powder at the end if you don't want to look like a grease ball. Highly moisturizing. Even though it is sort of for older skin, I actually think this looks weird on very wrinkled faces, as it does crease - a lot.
