I bought these a year ago, while purchasing the Perfecting Water/Purifying Oil line. I liked the concept that these are bleach free. The SA recommended cutting them in half since one pad is extremely large and are wasteful. I don't use these on a regular basis, I still have tons. I tend to just pump a few squirts in my hand and pat onto my skin. I don't know why other reviewers get …Read more

*This is a review for the Medium Skin Tone color. MUA wouldn't let me add a new review for that color only for some reason.*

have a fair skintone and this product works wonders for a natural looking tan without the harmful UV rays. This product works from day one and takes 3 days to reach maximum color. I don't like how this takes forever to dry on the skin, much longer …

Moisturizers - Bobbi Brown - Extra SPF 25 Moisturizing Balm

Aug/20/2008

This is my HG moisturizer for my sensitive, dry skin. Definitely a product for gals with dry to extra dry skin. I cannot find another cream that compares to this moisturizer. It's pretty expensive at $85, but you only need a tiny amount to get the job done and the 1.7oz jar lasts a long time. Since this product is a balm, it needs to be broken down. Therefore apply about a nickel size …Read more

This fragrance is amazing! It smells decadent on. I love how the rose scent is not like an old lady rose. It's fresh, and leaves a very beautiful scent that stays put. I think the bottle is beautiful, and the 1oz purse spray has lasted quite awhile. This and EL Bronze Goddess are my HGs!

I really like this scrub. I have dry, sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate it or make it itch. I actually like the oily feel it leaves after I exfoliate. It has a very pleasant citrus scent. I feel like the tub is a bit small, as I probably got about 3-4 good uses out of it. I would however purchase again if I need to exfoliate before self-tanning.

*edit* I read a reviewer …

This is one of my HG fragrances. I actually wear this fragrance year round as it does not smell beachy on me. It mixes so well with my body chemistry, and smells absolutely amazing. Whenever I wear this my boyfriend cannot stop smelling me, even his friends! Anyways, it does not smell like suntan oil or coconutty to me. I hate that smell! Bobbi Brown's Beach does not compare to this. …Read more

Palettes - Bobbi Brown - Mauve Face Palette Fall 2008

Aug/16/2008

I had high hopes for this palette as I read so many great reviews of this palette claiming it to be BB's best. How disappointing! I was a MA for BB for three years, so I've accumulated a lot of palettes and products from BB. I decided to buy this palette, only seeing pics of it online and not in person. When I received it, I was less than thrilled. I love Bobbi's Mauve …Read more

I absolutely love this concealer! I bought this hoping it would compare to YSL's Touche Eclat (even though I have never used it, I like the concept -- not the price tag). It lasts forever and covers very well as well as stays put throughout the day. The application is very quick and with just a little tapping in, it's perfection. I also like how it has a SPF 15 in it. I've …Read more

Cleansers - Dove - Gentle Exfoliating Daily Facial Cleanser

1.0

Aug/16/2008

First of all, I'm not a fan of drugstore skincare products. I only bought this cleanser to keep at my boyfriend's house because I didn't want to spend the money to buy my HG cleanser Dior Rinse-Off Cleansing Foam. My skin used to be normal to combo, but lately it has become drier and more sensitive. This cleanser was so drying on my skin, is overloaded with soap, and has even …Read more

Feb/27/2008

I really like this eyeshadow. I've never tried BE before, but really liked the color so I bought it. The color is such a beautiful neutral with a really pretty shimmer. Sometimes to intensify the color, I take a flat eye shadow brush (Bobbi Brown Touch Up brush) and spritz it with water. The color becomes a little deeper and the shimmer is very apparent. It's really pretty for a …Read more
