Rise and prime with this Bobbi Brown dream team

26 February 2021

Our favourite Bobbi Brown moisturiser and primer now comes in a very clever formula created just for your eyes.


By now, we’re all well aware that a moisturiser is the cornerstone of any great skincare routine. And when it comes to finding the perfect moisturiser, top of the checklist is a hydrating yet quick-absorbing formula that nourishes skin while prepping it for the next steps in our skincare routine.

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base ticks all the boxes as far as Fashion Quarterly‘s must-have moisturisers are concerned. After all there’s an excellent reason why this best-selling formula has garnered a serious following with skincare fanatics over the years. Vitamin Enriched Face Base is packed with a powerful combo of shea butter and vitamins B, C, and E, which protect, soothe and nourish the skin. From the moment you apply it, skin feels instantly smoother, more supple and intensely hydrated. And because it has been formulated as a multitasking moisturiser – we do love a skincare shortcut – you’re getting the best of both worlds: a moisturiser and a primer.

The Partner in Prime

Given our fondness of the original Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, understandably, the Fashion Quarterly team were delighted to discover that the much-loved formula has been revamped into an eye cream. Meet Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Eye Base: a clever multitasking hydrating formula that doubles as both a primer and a nourishing eye cream that restores radiance and hydration to the delicate eye area.

Fans of the Vitamin Enriched Face Base will be familiar with the new Vitamin Enriched Eye Base’s velvety texture. Borrowing from the iconic moisturiser, the ultra-nourishing eye cream glides onto the skin and is almost instantly absorbed. While some eye creams can feel too heavy on the skin or like they’re not doing enough, Vitamin Enriched Eye Base – much like it’s moisturising predecessor – is the perfect balance of feeling incredibly rich and hydrating while never feeling greasy or like it’s weighing your skin down. In other words, it’s a dream on the skin.

A Primer & Eye Cream in Just One Step

Intensely hydrating shea butter is at the heart of the formula, alongside supercharged hyaluronic acid, which works to draw and lock-in moisture. Then there’s a host of powerful vitamins that help keep skin healthy and enhance luminosity. Vitamin C boosts radiance and improves skin tone, while vitamin B gives the skin’s rejuvenation process a little hurry up and strengthens its protective barrier.

Together with a hit of caffeine, the Vitamin Enriched Eye Base revitalises the delicate eye area, minimises the signs of ageing and perks up tired-looking eyes almost instantly.

Plus, just like the Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Vitamin Enriched Eye Base doubles as the first step in your make-up routine too. While Vitamin Enriched Face Base provides the perfect base for smooth foundation application, its partner in prime, the Vitamin Enriched Eye Base, preps your skin for the next steps in your beauty routine. All you need to do is gently tap on the velvety eye cream over your orbital bone, and you’re ready to reach for your favourite Bobbi Brown corrector or concealer.
