QUICK REVIEW: This value set from beauty guru Bobbi Brown encompasses everything you need to rebalance Winter dry skin.
The lavender scented Cleansing Oil has a lighter texture and rinses away makeup and excess oils without stripping the skin (keep away from sensitive eyes). Personally, I prefer a thicker oil, but this would be a good choice for first time oil cleanser users or for those who like something lighter.
Hydrating Face Cream is a traditional moisturizer which leaves a slight film on the skin and creates a glowing base for makeup application. The trick to using this moisturizer successfully is to be sure skin is well exfoliated and apply sparingly to oilier skin (avoid t-zone) or more generously to dry skin (while skin is still moist after cleansing).
Finish off with Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream which is the perfect partner to the Hydrating Face Cream. This medium weight basic eye cream works well under concealer (or over to freshen), giving slightly dry eyes a nice cushion of moisture. Those who need a bit more anti-aging or corrective care can use this as an extra dose of moisture over their regular eye cream.
Overall, Bobbi Brown Bobbi’s Skincare Essentials Kit is a great buy for those who have basic skincare needs (perfect for makeup artist kits), want to add an extra layer of hydration under new BB Creams or need products that work well under makeup.
