I’ve been on a bit of a skincare roll lately, trying out all sorts of masks and serums and toners…but when it comes to the basics, I have a seriously firm love for Bobbi Brown. Gentle, nourishing products that I tend to reach for on makeup-free days where I just want all the nourishing goodness without a lot of fuss. I’ve already mentioned my morning cleanser being the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk – I’ve been using this for a couple of months now and I’m still not even halfway down. I use about three pumps in the morning for a quick cleanse, and it leaves my skin feeling fresh but not stripped of natural oils. It smells like lavender which is such a lovely, calming scent to wake up to and gets me ready to start the day.
Another cleanser that I love using is the Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil, but I usually reserve this for the evenings when I’m wearing a little tinted moisturiser or CC cream that needs breaking down before cleansing. It’s such a lightweight oil that lathers up when wet, so I love to work this in before washing it off. Again, a little goes a long way, so I only ever use a couple of pumps for my whole face. I love this so much that I’ve already purchased a back up – I know I’ll be using it for a long time!
After cleansing, I usually like to follow up with either a serum or an oil, but on days when my skin needs something a little extra, I’ve been reaching for the Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Nourishing Milk. It immediately seems to calm down any redness, and soothes my skin before I follow up with moisturiser. I actually love to use this after toning my skin because my skin seems to drink it up. It’s quite runny so you have to be careful when applying it, but as with a lot of Bobbi Brown products, just a little bit can do absolute wonders. You definitely don’t need to apply a lot.
Last up in my routine is the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream*. I actually hadn’t tried any moisturisers from Bobbi Brown until this one, and I’m so glad that I finally got to try one! I absolutely love the formula because it’s as simple as it gets, but it feels so luxurious to use. There’s no strong scents, it’s not too rich or overpowering – just a wonderfully hydrating face cream that preps my skin for the day and works as a smooth base underneath makeup. I absolutely love it!
