Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm




Bobbi Brown has just introduced the Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm – a skin-boosting balm that illuminates skin from the inside out and re-energizes with long-term benefits. Bobbi calls it her new “Dream Cream”, perfect for days when skin needs an extra pick-me-up.

A unique combination of skin-illuminating pearls helps skin look fresher. There are super-moisturizing ingredients to revitalize skin’s appearance and diminish dullness while ultra-fine pearls mimic the natural glow of healthy skin.


Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm helps my skin stay hydrated

It’s not as thick as it looks, it applies on to skin very easily and absorption is almost immediate. It gives my dry skin a moisture boost and indeed, this product is designed for normal to dry skin. I think that mature skins would much benefit from this especially before applying foundation.

A blend of Lychee Extract and Caffeine help renew skin’s natural energy while Muru Muru Seed and Shea Butter help repair the moisture barrier. With this on, my dull looking skin looks illuminated and brighter with a slight dewy glow.




This is a great product for making skin look instantly more healthy and brighter. In addition, it helps keep my skin well hydrated. I apply this after sunscreen and just before liquid foundation.

Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm retails at RM245/30ml.

    • I would say it is an illuminating moisturizer. Technically not a primer because you don’t have to use it under make-up. It’s more skincare than part of make-up.

    • This gives no coverage at all. The main effects of this Moisture Balm is that it gives a dewy illuminating look + hydrates skin. If you want even sheer coverage of spots/imperfections, you would need to apply BB/CC Cream or foundation after this.
