The Skincare #19: Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream
Wednesday, 5 June 2013
My first venture into Bobbi Brown skincare came about because as Sod's Law would have it, while I have ridiculously oily skin, stupidly oily eyelids, the skin under my eyes is dry. I mean can-you-say-Sahara-dry! I hate Sod whoever he is... I first noticed that the skin around my eyes felt dryer as makeup wasn't sitting right, so swayed by the word extra, I opted for the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream. I use both the creamy concealer and the corrector but other than those and an orange toned lipstick that's currently on my wish list, Bobbi Brown isn't a brand I've dabbled with often.
This is a really thick cream. I was worried that it would be too thick and rich and I'd end up reserving it for night time but I take a tiny amount and warm it between my fingers before patting it in and this works fine, I can go ahead and apply under eye concealer. I've been using this religiously for a few weeks now and it has really made a difference to my under eye area. It looks and feels hydrated and softer and makeup sits better now too.
While I'm happy with the results, a word of warning for anyone thinking of buying this, is sniff it first. It's not unpleasant but it has a very distinct scent if you are sensitive to these things. Thankfully you can't get this once applied! You can pick this up from Bobbi Brown counters for €49.
Speaking of picking things up, I'm currently selling some old clothes on Ebay here if anyone would like to take a look :)
