Products of The Day: Bobbi Brown Remedies
My skin always misbehaves when the weather changes. I'm also on some new medication, which is not doing wonders for my complexion either. So while I got (and tried) the entire set of the Bobbi Brown Remedies, these two are my favourites because they resolved my weird skin struggle of acne and dryness.
The Skin Clarifier No 75 contains rosehip seed, sea buckthorn, saw palmetto, and manuka oils. Rosehip and sea buckthorn refine the skin texture and clarity, while saw palmetto and manuka help control breakouts. I spritz my face with rosewater and apply three to four drops of this oil all over my face when it's still damp. I like this oil because it moisturises my skin without making it reactive. While you can't use this oil as a spot treatment, it works very well as an overall skin nourisher when your skin is breaking out.
The Skin Salve No 57 has become a staple on my bedside table. I'm sure it wasn't formulated for the under eye area, but I've been using it on my lips and under my eyes everyday. I just find most eye creams too light and this just makes my thin eye skin feel smoother and more resilient the morning after. I love it so much that I have stopped using my other eye cream that I had specially ordered from overseas. And yes I also pat the salve on dry patches around my cheeks. I love multitasking products and in that regard, this one ticks all the right boxes.
