I'd never even heard of anything like the Extra Treatment Lotion before, and now I'm kind of sad I hadn't found it until now (although in my defense, it is fairly new to NZ). It's for those of us in need of extra moisture, and designed to give you just that- and to actually help your moisturiser to perform better. You apply it (just a few drops) after cleansing and pre-moisturiser, and I found it primes and plumps my skin beautifully. It's water-based so it feels incredible on, and it just made my skin feel so hydrated all day. I also don't need to use as much moisturiser, so it will end up saving money. I like. I also really like the sleek, clean packaging.
I'm kind of addicted to the Extra Repair Moisture Cream now. I like to use it as a day moisturiser when I know I have to look especially on point that day (I am currently rationing it), because it makes my skin SMOOTH and GLOWY and NICE!!! It smells amazing, looks super cute in its glass jar, and I don't need to use very much to get the full effect. It's that nice that it feels like a proper treat to use, but it's not at all heavy either, no filminess afterwards. I really just don't want to run out...please last forever.
The CC Cream SPF35 Cream is another fairly new addition to the Bobbi Brown line, and it's a beaut. I love myself a good colour corrector at the best of times, and this one is RIGHT up there in my faves. Designed to be applied after moisturising and pre-foundation, it softly diffuses any imperfections and brightens your skin up at the same time- and I love that it has SPF35. A true multipurpose product! It comes in 3 different shades, (Pale Nude, Warm Nude and Golden Nude) so you'll be able to find the one just right for you. This is a must-have for me to apply before I use foundation- and also ensures I use less concealer, perfect!
The Creamy Concealer is a best seller, and for good reason. Unsurprisingly it is lovely and creamy, but not sheer- it DEFINITELY gives you all the coverage you need! I use it mainly on and around my nose and chin, my "trouble areas"- prone to dryness, so this concealer is perfection. All of these shades are yellow-based, so you can use this under your eyes as well, and I can honestly say it's the longest wearing of any concealer I have tried, and I've tried a fair few . I'm a huge fan of the packaging, being all sleek, classic and black, and I can't even imagine how long this is going to last me..I wouldn't be surprised if it outlived me. Just kidding..I think.
Okay- so that's nearly my base covered! In part 2 of this review, I'll tell you all about what else I love- including powder, eye colour, blush, lip colour- and so much more. In the meanwhile, please go and see the lovelies at the Bobbi Brown store or counter- they are so nice, and know the products inside out. You don't just get a makeup application, they talk about each product step by step, and you'll leave knowing exactly what each one does and that yourbeen matched perfectly. Go go go!
