        This fixes the constant problem of concealers and foundation balling up and rolling and flaking off the skin after the application of all sunscreens and blocks which contain ADA recommended strengths of SPF (i.e., 30 minimum). It is vital to moisturize the skin before using this and most primers.

        TIP: let moisturizers and whatever else you might be placing on just washed skin sink in BEFORE applying this and like most everything, thinner multiple layers with time to set up in between is always better than slopping on a lot of product at once.

        I find most consumers use too much non-SPF skin product, period ...and product failures are often rooted in just that. By my own experimentation, I have found that - as Bobbi has said many times - multiple thin layers with time in between for setup is again the right way to apply products, period.

        Room for improvement: packaging and dispensing. Like so many BB products, this is such a great product but the container and dispensing of the product is nowhere near as well deseigned. Because of the nature of the product, the cap tends to slip and burst off and away from you ...onto floor and elsewhere not so nice; also, dispensing it as most users do (fingers onto tip of open tube) begets contamination. I would love to work with BB on applying UX principles to improving this aspect of its products as this is often, in my experience, where BB products are not so good ...and where design and manufacturing is concerned, this is a lot easier to fix than the cosmetic and chemistry part.

        I live in Vegas, so you know I need SPF practically year round. My skin type changes from combo/dry in winter to combo/oily in summer so when I saw there was an SPF version of Face Base I was excited.

        Several people have written that this is not greasy. For me, it IS greasy. Very greasy. I have to apply powder immediately after application to tone down the shine. And that doesn't always help. Unfortunately, I don't use this daily. I only keep it onhand for when I go to the pool or will be active outside. This doesn't break me out like traditional drug store sunscreen does. And it smells sooo much better...not that familiar sunscreen smell.

        It is a bright creamy white but no white residue once applied.

        So I'll just stick to my summer routine without the Face Base: oil free tinted SPF moisturizer, a bit of bronzer, eyeliner & mascara and out the door I go.

        Invisible and protective---a perfect combination!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        I was looking for a face base to protect my skin from the sun, but not interfere with any makeup. This is perfect! It is truly invisible, doesn't add shine or feel like I have layered another product under what I currently use. I will buy it again and use it year round. It is amazing how much sun reflects off the snow!

        This product... I have bought tubes and tubes of it!!! I use it every morning after my serums and oils and before my makeup and it layers like a dream!! I also have sensitive skin and have never ever had a problem with this product. I love that it soaks in well and never feels sticky and never smells like SPF. It's so worth the money to me, I never want to be without it!! I have not had any sort of burn on my face in years since I've been using it!! Please keep it around forever!!

        My new go-to multitasking moisturizer

        from Tennessee

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        This is the perfect a.m. spf/moisturizer/primer. It is very soothing and doesn't migrate into my eyes. I have very sensitive skin, but this product does not cause any irritation. I love it. Thank you, Bobbi Brown!

        Wow!

        By 

        from San Francisco, CA, USA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        I was hesitant to purchase the SPF 50 Protective Face Base because of the cost. However, after the first use, I was sold. It has a light feel, goes on easily, is quickly absorbed, leaves no white "ghost face," and is wonderful as a foundation base. It is gentle on my skin.. I get lots of compliments. I couldn't ask for a better sunscreen...and I've tried many. This is it for me. I'm entirely satisfied. One comment to Bobbi Brown: You have this product listed in the face make-up section, but you might also want to list it in the beach and/or skin sections. I had a difficult time finding it for reorder and finally entered "SPF 50" in the search bar and it came up. Love it!!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        but this deserves it! My BB foundation goes on smoothly on top of it or I'll mix the two together and apply- if feels great on-- weightless, greaseless with a significant SPF. Complete winner.

        Best Sunscreen

        By 

        from Utah, USA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        This is the best sunscreen that I've tried for my face. It is non-greasy and does not leave a white residue. It has a SPF 50, so I use this everyday in the summertime. A little bit goes a long way. I use a pea size (or dime size if I'm doing outdoor activities). This wears well under my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. I have oily-combination skin, so it does leave my t-zone a little shiny, but some powder fixes that problem.

        So I love the Foundation Stick which doesn't have SPF. My solution? SPF 50 Face Base as my protector and primer in one! Got to protect my face from the warm CA sun!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base:

        For back country biking/hiking trips where I'm lucky to wash my face, much less do a full skin care regimen- this is my daily moistuzizer that keeps me from completely losing touch with skin care reality.
