I have recently added two new products into my skincare routine, both products are from one of my favourite brands, Bobbi Brown.
I have written two posts on my Skincare routine in the past (you can see read them here and here if you are interested) and I still use all the skincare mentioned in the previous posts, but sometimes its nice to add a few new things into the mix…
Before picking up this Hydrating Face Tonic, I had never really used a ‘Toner’ in my skincare routine before as I never really saw the point. I picked this up on a whim and thought I would add this to my regime.
Hydrating Face Tonic is a soothing and restorative treatment for your skin, which is to be used both day and night after cleansing. I take a small amount onto a cotton pad and sweep all over my cleansed skin to ensure all my makeup has been removed. This also preps my skin for my moisturiser.
It is enriched with cucumber extract to soothe and soften, and ‘powerful enriched mineral water’ that hydrates, balances and revives the skin. It also has Lavender in the ingredients to help calm irritated areas, which is great as I have redness in my skin.
I have to say the first thing, apart from the beautiful packaging, is how amazing this product smells, it has a cucumber, green scent, which is very spa-like and relaxing.
Straight after using this my skin does feel softer and any redness looks reduced, which is great when I suffer from breakouts. It is a very luxurious and quite lovely product that I’m sure is going to last me a very long time. You can also use your fingers instead of a cotton pad, which will make the product last even longer as Cotton pads sometimes soak the product up too much.
It is suitable for all skin types, but it is mainly aimed at people who suffer with dry and sensitive skin. I have normal – oily skin that is prone to spots and I have found that it works for me. It really refreshes my skin and makes me look healthy and glowy. It also hasn’t made me break out, which is always a worry with new products.
Like the Face Tonic, I never used to use an eye-cream. After turning 26, I thought it would be a good time to start using one to try to remain young forever.
This Eye Cream is very light in texture and I find a little goes a long way. It is enriched with mineral water, Aloe Vera (which soothes and calms the skin) and Jojoba Seed and Avocado oil to hydrate the under eye area.
I use a pea sized amount both morning and night and gently dab under my eye area with my ring finger. I find that it absorbs quickly, which is great as I don’t like waiting around in the morning, I’d rather still be in bed! I’ve also found that my concealer goes on more smoothly when using this and doesn’t crease under my eye, which is a win win.
I would definitely buy this again when I run out as I like the routine of using an eye cream both morning and evening, and I think its important to start using one when you are slightly younger.
I am excited to see what the long term results of both these products will be as I’ve only been using them for just over a month. I really do love Bobbi Brown Skincare, so let me know if there is anything else I need to add to my collection in the comments below!
