[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In my perfect world I could eat as much junk food as I wanted to and it would constantly burn fat, eliminating the need to ever work out. Or I could have “smart” socks that would be drawn to each other and I would never have an unmatched pair again. Although in reality, very rarely these multi-taskers work out (because 1.they call it junk food for a reason, 2. “Smart” socks are equally awesome and scary), and also because the ideal two-in-one pairing that actually works is a rare find indeed.

So color me delighted when I tried Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base.  This two in one face primer and moisturizer is beginning to change my outlook. Rich in shea butter and vitamins C and E, the primer itself glides on and melts into skin, giving it a quick dousing of nutrients and hydration. Luxurious in texture, I was tempted to scoop a huge amount and slather it all over my face and hands, but my common sense (and my wallet) prevailed. Luckily, using a small dab will get you just as far. Once fully absorbed, this base creates a silky smooth surface, filling in uneven textures and providing a barrier from the natural oils in your skin to transfer into your foundation. The results – smooth foundation application and long lasting wear.  Uplifting geranium and grapefruit provide just enough to invigorate without overwhelming; and the subtle dewiness it imparts suggests skipping my highlighting all together is fair game.

After loving this primer/base combo I realized I may just be living in my perfect world after all, sans “smart” socks. Now if I can just discover weight-loss junk food, I could literally have my cake and eat it too! Until then, I’ll settle for sumptuously soft, nourished skin, at the ready for my daily dose of full foundation.
