Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil Review

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil

Bobbi Brown Counter: HKD380
Volume: 200ml/bottle

2015-07-24 18.24.31What goes on must come off. At the end of a long day at work, all I want to do is to

get home and take off all of my make up before taking a shower to wash the tired off of me. I’m a firm believer in using separate products for my eyes/lips and face; there are products out there that say you can remove all of your makeup with one product but I honestly feel that it’s all too messy.

I’ll talk about my eye makeup remover in another post, but I’d like to introduce you to this great makeup remover: the Bobbi Brown Oil Cleanser. Priced at HKD380 per 200ml bottle, this product can be purchased at any Bobbi Brown counter here in Hong Kong. Made with Jasmine Flower Extract and Kukui Nut Oil combined with a host of organic oils such as Sunflower, Olive and Jojoba, this oil cleanser has a light consistency that emulsifies quickly when you add water to it and it turns a whitish colour as you mix more water into it.

I usually use about two pumps of it onto dry palms and massage it all over my dry face in circular motions after removing my eye makeup, and then slowly adding lukewarm water and washing my face with the same circular motions to wash off the oil and subsequently the makeup from my face. I am left with nice clean skin that doesn’t feel tight or greasy afterwards. I personally prefer to follow up with a cream cleanser that is fit for the season (FYI, Bobbi Brown’s Lathering Tube Soap is also quite the amazing 🙂 ) as I believe in using a double cleansing system; however, this product doesn’t require you to do so as your skin is left clean and supple after the initial cleansing. I happen to be very paranoid about breaking out and I feel that the double cleansing will leave me extra squeaky clean.

I have a list of cleansing oils that I would like to try in the future, but for now, this product has not made me break out or red sensitive patches on my face, and it is a dependable product for any season and different intensities of makeup looks; this alone is already a winner in my book 🙂

Bobbi Brown Eye Cream Reviews

Bobbi Brown Counter: HKD360 | HKD560
Volume: 30ml/pot

2015-07-24 18.42.36One of the most telling features of a woman’s age are wrinkles in around the eyes, and thus it is important to keep the entire eye area well moisturized and to refrain from rubbing, pulling or dragging on the skin in the eye area. I’ve been searching high and low for good eye creams for my often dry eyes as even though I’m dutiful in applying eye cream morning and night, on bad days my undereye area looks tired, dry and I’ve immediately aged 10 years.

I regularly use the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (HKD360), which is a little pot of amazing for my eyes both morning and night; it works great as a concealer prep 🙂 The pot is made of a nice study glass that would be safe to keep at home but you’d have to be a little more careful when taking this on a trip. The eye cream itself is easy to scoop out with either your ring finger or a small spatula; its consistency is much like thicker lotion, but it’s not as thick as a cream.

However, I will say that for my skin, I feel like this eye cream would be moisturizing enough for all the months except for the winter as I feel like my skin would need an extra oomph; for that, I normally use the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream (HKD560) where the cream’s consistency is decidedly much thicker and requires me to warm it up with my ring fingers before applying it onto my eyes. The pot itself is also of a much thicker glass and I would definitely not want to take this one on trips as it’s just too heavy and prone to shattering if dropped. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Bobbi Brown’s eye creams are my top choice for my eyes 🙂
