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.

Review for: Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 more...
Did not like this product at all. The first day I wore it I found m face to be itchy. Within 2 days of wearing it I ended up breaking out with milia. I read up on it a bit more and see that there is lavender oil in it which could be the problem. I was hoping for it to be the my go too since I do have dry skin :(

Review for: Bobbi Brown INTENSIVE SKIN SERUM FOUNDATION SPF 40 (natural) more...
I bought this foundation because I liked the fact that it had serum and such a high spf (40) which are always great for your skin, but after one use I noticed my pores on my face look very obvious. I wouldn't spend the money on this product, not worth it

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.

I didn't love this and ultimately returned, unfortunately. I purchased to replace my normal BB cream. My combo (but leaning toward oily), maturing skin didn't take this formula so well...it sat on top. The formula is probably very nice for someone with normal or dry skin, considering you get the high SPF with it as well.

I did not get on well with this product at all. I bought this at the airport as an impulse buy. I was told it'd be moisturizing for my dry skin but when I applied the hybrid (using moisturizer and a primer) it stuck to all my dry patches and emphasised my pores. I was so disappointed as the price is more than steep. I will definitely not be buying again as it made me feel awful about my skin.

I use Bobbi Brown regularly, but this was not a winner. The formula was too heavy and I felt like my fav was breaking out frequently. I switched back to my usual BB foundation, and the problem resolved itself. Another thing was the applicator wasted a lot of product. It was hard to control how much you were getting out of the bottle. Overall, I did not like this foundation.

It does not give any coverage on my face. i have dry and acne prone skin. and i got a lot of patches too after i put this foundation on. the only good thing is this foundation makes my skin better at the end of the day. i guess its the serum in it.

Undecided about this product, cons are the price of the foundation (£45) and also the mechanism of the bottle is not the best. Also can make your face look very shiny almost greasy unless you powder to quite some extent. The foundation will wear off thought out the day especially around the nose area not something I expected from such an high end and pricey product. However it does have pros which include it being nourishing on the skin especially for me having very dry skin around the eyes it also feels incredibly soft and has good buildable coverage.

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.
