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.

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: 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.

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: 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 :)

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.

Review for: Porcelain more...
I am a huge Bobbi fan, so it breaks my heart to not give this product a great review. But I have to be honest. I have always used her foundations in Porcelain because I am very fair. However, this product is awful for my skin. I have normal skin, and this leaves me sooo oily and sticky! Even if I set it with a powder or spray my face feels so heavy and sticky with this. Don't even try in the summer! It feels like sludge!

Absolutely love this foundation.

It is lightl, but moisturizing-very flawless coverage. Dewy finish so I like to use powder on top to keep everything looking natural.

Personally I suggest to get one shade darker-I was suggested Porcelain, but look better with Sand.

Review for: Cool Sand, Alabaster more...
So first off this foundation applies and blends like a dream. I really like the finished look. It seems so smooth and gives the illusion that its not really there. Sadly, I react poorly to this formula. I get itchy and my skin starts to burn slightly. I'm super bummed because it gives such a nice look. I would only recommend this if you don't have sensitive skin.

Review for: Beige more...
This best way to describe this product was a love/hate relationship. Some days I really loved how the makeup applied and others not so much. I thought it was just me but when I went back to BB counter, the sales person said, if you don't shake it just right, it doesn't mix well enough. It's a bit pricey, loved how it made my skin feel, but just not the foundation for me.

Review for: Alabaster more...
Amazing foundation

I have used the Bobbi Brown serum foundation for about two years.  It is very difficutl to find a foundation for very fair skin.  The color alabaster is perfect for me.  I am 67 and this foundation works very well with my very dry skin.  The high amount of SPF is a nice addition.  The foundation is lightwieght and buildable.  I have tired other foundations and I always come back to this one.
