I know that no one product can be perfect for everyone, but this one is a big disappointment. It is very orange on my fair olive skin and does not really cover my redness, even with multiple layers. For me, the brush is a waste, as it is stiff and leaves streaks. I got a much smoother application with my fingers and beauty blender sponge. But the color is wrong. Perhaps the worst of it is the strong, awful smell. My sensitive skin began to react immediately, so off it came. Hours later, my skin is still feeling irritated. I have normal, but sensitive skin with redness on the cheeks and eyebrows. This product really did not tone down much of the redness. Needless to say, it's going back tomorrow. If you have sensitive skin (and nose) I'd say, skip this one.
I LOVE this lip gloss! It is a wonderful color for my light olive skin tone and dark hair. Furthermore, it really keeps my lips hydrated and moist. I've very sensitive to cosmetics and this does not bother me at all. I'm on my 5th tube and that is saying a LOT for me!
There is good news, Bobbi has listened and has changed the messy loose powder that gets everywhere, to pressed powder. So I'm trying the new version and loving it. My 3 lippies is for the old, loose powder version. Still a good product. Bobbi makes quality makeup!
I wanted to love this mascara, but alas it ended up giving me racoon eyes after an hour! So back to Nordy's it goes. I'm still looking for my HG mascara.

Beware! If you are sensitive to Titanium Dioxide, this product will make you itch and turn red as it did me. Also, the delivery design needs work. There is no way of knowing how much, if any, of the product is delivered in the brush. I love BE products and this one is a big disappointment!
I have very sensitive skin and eyes. Lately, mascaras have been a challenge. I have sparse lashes, but long ones. I've tried LOTS of other mascaras only to have my eyes itch and water or have the mascara end up under my eyes and I look like a racoon. This one is different. This does not bother my eyes. This does not end up under my eyes. This lengthens nicely and gives a more natural look, which at my age, is preferred. I really like this mascara. So if you have sensitive eyes and skin, you might want to give this a try. It doesn't have all the bad stuff some mascaras contain and has jojoba oil to condition lashes, which for me is a plus. Everyone is different. This works for me--thank goodness!
I really like this mascara. I put off buying it and now I wish I'd bought it months before! It does a great job providing lushness and thickness to lashes. It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. It doesn't flake or rub off. It does all that a mascara should! I've repurchased this mascara 3 times and love it. However, the brush could be thinner for my tastes.

I have sensitive skin and this product burned my face and turned it bright red. I spent days calming it down. I tried it and I cannot recommend this product. It's gone back to the store.

This product left my skin tight and needing moisture. Not enough for 50+ skin. I've returned it. Nothing special.

I was looking forward to trying this product because of all the positive ratings. It made my skin very itchy on the first use and smells like bug spray. YUK! It's going back to the store tomorrow.
Lotions/ Creams -Origins - A Perfect World body cream

This is my HG skin moisturizer. When I try others I always go back to this. If your skin is dry and dehydrated, this is what helps. I've tried so many others and this works. The scent takes a bit of getting used to, but the results speak for themselves. Great soft elbows, knees.
After trying a very small sample of this product that didn't irritate my sensitive skin and desperate to find something that worked, I purchased this and the other eye cream. They both go on nicely and absorb, but have done nothing for my dark circles and wrinkles. NOTHING. After $250 for both products, you'd think I'd get some results. I'll use them up and move on. Other reviewers who liked this product have combo skin, I have very sensitive skin. Perhaps it's not the right product for my skin type
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow - Fawn

This is one of my favorite colors of eyeshadow and I've bought over and over. It's a beautiful neutral that makes eyes pop. I have hazel gold eyes and everytime I wear this shadow, I get compliments. I've tried many e/s, but always come back to this one. I just wish that Bobbi would use smaller pans and less packaging. This is a lot to carry around. My HG? Very, very close!
I've tried everything on my dry, cracked feet and about 5 years ago discovered Rescue Me. It's my HG of lotions. It works so well I even use it on my hands! I can't live without this stuff. Slather it on your feet and put on socks and go to sleep. When I wake, softer heels that don't look peeling and scaly. I LOVE this stuff and won't be without it. I'm surprised by the negative reviews. It's on the top of my all-time favorite list!

This is a product that I buy over and over. I live in Southern California and the pollution in the water and air reaks havoc on my skin. This is great for spraying on my face to hydrate and calm it. I use it to remove my cleanser also. It works wonders with a Wonder Cloth. I am never without this product.
