Most Helpful Positive

it works

Greta

I used with bobbi brown foundation and it lasts for long hours. It does help the make to stick and last, without transfering.

Most Helpful Criticism

Falls short. Big disappointment.

Rachael McLean

We love seeing primers that offer skin care benefits in addition to enhancing makeup, but Bobbi Brown's Primer Plus Protection SPF 50 falls short and ends up being a disappointment.

The biggest selling point of this lotion-like foundation primer is that it provides broad-spectrum sun protection. There's no color or white cast to it whatsoever, so it won't impact the color of your makeup.

The emollient formula is best for those with dry skin, who may even find this is hydrating enough to use as their daytime moisturizer (with liberal application to reach the stated level of sun protection, of course).

As far as performance goes, this aids in makeup application, providing a smooth canvas for foundation and concealer, though its emollience means that it doesn't really increase wear time.

Another drawback is that this contains lavender extract and geranium oil (which is obvious from this product's scent) and the fragrance ingredients citronellol, geraniol, and linalool. Although present in low amounts, they still have the potential to irritate skin, especially in the eye area. (Note: We experienced some eye-area irritation when testing this product.)

Given the growing number of better primers available in all price ranges, including some with sunscreen, we feel strongly that it's better to skip this one.

PROS:
Provides broad-spectrum SPF 50.
Lays down a smooth canvas for makeup application.
Feels moisturizing to dry skin.
CONS:
Does not improve the wear time of makeup.
Contains fragrance ingredients that can irritate skin.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: Yes
  1. helps the longevity

    Greta

    I use it with bobbi brown foundation and it lasts the whole day. Is it the primer or the foundation? I am not sure, but I am very happy with the results.

  3. Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier

    Lily

    I absolutely love this primer. I have combination to coil skin so I always prefer a matte finish like super matte! This primer works wonders, it smells great, and my makeup looks so fresh even after 8 hours.
  4. Fantastic!

    Si

    I wear it every day to work and prevents from skin looking to shiny. Love this primer its great for combination/oily skin.

  7. Good to use with their tinted moisturiser

    Kristy

    I purchased this to use with their tinted moisturiser as I find that it can look a bit oily on my skin. This primer leaves my skin with more of a matte look, which I prefer.
  8. Works

    Prabhjot

    It actually works to control oil and give that matte look.
  9. Good for oily skin types

    Christina

    I have oily skin and I find this really helps me to get that nice, matte finish.
  10. Best for oily skin

    s

    Mattifies my oily skin so well but also keeps that natural look to my skin which I love
  11. This is for oil skin.

    Helena

    I was recommended this primer as I have the combination skin but please do not use this all over the face. After liquid foundation, the texture looked a little cakey... Better apply just on the oil area for spot use. This is not for me.
  12. great for hot days

    J

    I like using this mattifier on hot/summer days, it controls shine and helps my makeup go on smoothly
  13. Love it

    Sheridan

    I struggle to like primers but I love the BB ones. It has real blurring properties
  14. Great for oily greasy skin

    Bayden

    Bit of a splurge but really does handle oily skin well
  15. Beautiful primer

    Keelia

    I have combination skin and was looking for a primer that would even out my skin, and make it last beautifully and this product sure does. It smells really nice, and feels quite lovely, like icing. My makeup has honestly never looked better- it has staying power and creates such a smooth beautiful base.
    -1 for the price though, it is at the higher end
  16. Good Primer!

    Mandy

    I really liked this, it works great as a primer and helps my foundation go on smoothly.
  17. Love it

    Daisy

    Love this primer - great for combination skin. I wear it every day to work and prevents from skin looking to shiny.
  18. Lasted surprisingly long

    Meghan

    Not the best primer I've ever used, but certainly a good product. It has a silicone base so helps with shine. It also lasted a surprisingly long time because you only need to use a pea sized amount at a time.
  19. Multiple duties but all in 1 Primer!

    Kellee

    I have used this primer with various foundations and finishes and the results are similar in appearance. My pores near my cheeks closest to my nose and my chin area are smooth and filled in and my foundation does not look different from morning application to evening. It is nice to see Bobbi Brown come out with an innovative primer that also delivers results.
  20. Give it a chance

    Alex

    I got this primer to use with the new B.B. foundation and a first didn't think it was very mattifying but have changed my opinion after using more and considering I have a very shiny nose ! I now really like it
  21. Another waste of money

    Julia

    I'm starting to go off Bobbi Brown products. Perhaps I'll just stick to the makeup, as I feel the skincare is a bit of hype wrapped in the name but doesn't actually deliver. This was to be my saviour for my excessively oily skin... except it wasn't. I quite like the texture of it, not as silicone-y as most, but that's where my positives end. I suppose make-up goes on a little smoother, but the mat...

  22. It is Great

    Rabia

    Hi ladies, yes I have purchased this and I wasn't very sure but it is a good primer for combo skin type, it is very light and I can recommend this
  23. Good primer

    Marketa

    I got quite a big sample of this primer with my Bobbi Brown Foundation purchase and really like it. I would definitively consider purchasing this one once I will use my current one. It is a little bit like Benefit Porefessional but it does not feel so silicone based, it is a bit lighter. It suits also to my dry skin (with good moisturizer under) without getting flaky.
