Cleansers -Bobbi Brown -Cleansing Oil

This isn't the right product for me but only because I have super sensitive eyes and anything that might run down to my eyes need to be very gentle. It's not difficult to get it in your eyes as you wash your face, you know. And I don't know what it says on the bottle, I tried the product with the samples I've received with my other Bobbi Brown purchase, but looking at the ingredients personally I wouldn't advise using this on the eye area.

If my eyes weren't an issue though I would probably purchase it. I'm not a fan of products with fragrance but this has such a lovely floral scent for my taste AND it doesn't say "Perfume/Fragrance" in the ingredients so I take it as the scent is coming from the natural oils only. I put some on a piece of cotton, wiped my face with it, then for a second time with another cotton, and washed my face. My whole make-up was gone. For comparison when I use micellar water I only need to wipe my face once, so this oil is more time-consuming. However, micellar water always leaves my skin dry while this oil left my face softer even after I washed it.

The price is expensive but a small amount of oil does the work. Because I used samples I can even give a number; the sample size is 10oz/3 ml and I only used half of it to clean the foundation & blush on my face. So the 200ml bottle would last for a long time for me. Also I think the transculent bottle with pumper looks lovely and is easy to use.



Liquid -Bobbi Brown -Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15

It's an okay foundation. In my opinion is it not living up to promised qualities. It could be the SPF that ruins the texture of the product. It feels like it glides too much on my combination skin. The product feels like skin just after application, yet it is far from providing long wear. In just a few hours a lot of redness showed through, and generally the foundation was "eaten up" a lot. Not matte finish as I can tell, more like satin.

I don’t know why they ever discontinued this lipstick. It was a wonderful color and formula. Please bring it back Bobbi Brown.

Blush -Bobbi Brown -Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Calypso Coral

This blush is a good coral colour, and although it looks much too bright for me in the container, I found when I smoothed it on that it blended easily and gave a soft and pretty effect. The packaging says it can be used for both lips and cheeks, but I'm not sure what that would do from the hygiene point of view. Wouldn't using it for both mean lots of bacteria getting into the product? I don't think I will use it as a lip gloss for this reason., but as a blush it works well for me. Easy to spread, and - very important - didn't cause any reaction to my very sensitive skin.
I do think it's overpriced, but I would buy it again for the colour and the easy way it spreads. You only need a very small amount, so I expect it to last well. I have had to stop using powder blush because the skin on my cheeks is just too dry to make a good surface, and putting powder on top just dries them out more. But this is a good product and works for me. Not sure how this would work on darker skin but I am very pale and it looks great with my colouring.


Lipstick -Bobbi Brown -Nude

I've been a fan of Bobbi Brown's products since the 1990s. I recently picked this classic up because I realized I didn't have a great day-to-day lip color. This is a good one. It's a rosy-brown nude that is just enough color to make my lips look like they have a little something on them but not so much that it stands out like crazy.

It's not the longest lasting formula ever but it's creamy and comfortable so I'll give it a pass.
