So far I’ve only tried non-Asian BB creams from low-end brands and most of them are more like tinted moisturizer than BB creams. While almost every high end brands are releasing their versions of BB creams, I’ve never tried them due to the price factor. Besides everything are more expensive when they come to Australia, I am on a tight spending budget.

My wonderful friend sent me a package sometimes last year. I was at one of my personal low points at the time and having new toys to play with cheered me up (thank you so much!) I was even more excited when I saw Bobbi Brown BB cream among the loots. I’ve had great experience with Bobbi Brown base makeups and had been keen to try the BB cream since it was released.

I simply adore Bobbi Brown’s signature simple yet sleek black package. I love the flat top cap which means I can let it stand on my makeup shelf.

The product comes in tube form which dispenses the exact amount I want.

Bobbi Brown BB Cream isn’t like typical Asian BB creams, but is thicker in consistency than tinted moisturizer and most non-Asian BB creams. It’s more like sheer foundation. The coverage is light and is buildable to medium-light.

The color I have is Fair which is my perfect match and blends flawlessly into my skin. It’s quite creamy if you consider it a sheer foundation, yet very lightweight. It’s perfect for hot summer days if you hate the feeling of wearing a layer of mask on your face.

Serum in any skin care line usually comes with expensive price tags and is usually one of the most expensive item in the line. And if it belongs to an anti-ageing line, it’s even pricier. For this reason I don’t often incorporate serums into my skin care routine.

Aldi is know to sell budget friendly products so when I saw these serums on the shelf I had to try them. I can’t remember the exact price. These were purchased around Oct last year and I believe they’re in AUD$10 – $12 range.
