Bobbi Brown Extra Face Balm
I’m really enjoying using this face balm wash. One of the reasons why I purchased it is because I needed something to calm my skin down after the vigarous scrubbing that comes with the use of my exfoliation gloves. Several people tell me it’s not good to exfoliate my face everyday but, I’ve been doing this for years and it seems to work for me. I hardly ever gets spots (although when I do, they leave vicious war scars which are nothing short of annoying). This balm is scented with the signature Bobbi Brown scent that you will notice across the board of their skincare products. It smells like a floral-citrus hybrid pefume and feels like a waxy non sticky honey. It’s a very strong and distinctive smell so if you don’t like the scent, maybe it’s best to avoid their skin care products all together. From what I know, they do not include scent across most their make up range (just their tinted moisturisers). This balm is good but not great. It’s calming but not as effective as your normal cleansing wash and it does not lather upon application (hence why it’s called a balm). I wouldn’t buy this product unless there was an extensive facial routine in place which I already have (have a look at my skincare routine video here). I doubt I will be buying this again because the tub is huge and by the time I finish it, I will probably have moved on because I like to switch things up. I would definitely say it’s nearly value for money in terms of the size (it’s almost as big as my hand) and of course, it is a luxury product but it’s definitely not a necessity in ones kit.
