New releases: Bobbi Brown Remedies – No.86
15 Sunday Jan 2017
Bobbi Brown has always been a favourite of mine for high quality, effective skincare. Over the years I’ve used the Extra Repair Moisturising Balm, Extra Eye Repair Cream, Cleansing Oil, Buffing Grains, Face Mist, amongst others. When I heard about the new Bobbi Brown Remedies, I wanted to try them out to see how they measured up.
There are six treatments in the Remedies range: 5 liquid treatments and one balm treatment.
- No. 57: Skin Salve – Restoring Treatment – enhances skin’s protective barrier to allow skin to repair
- No. 75: Skin Clarifier – Pore & Oil Control – balances sebum levels and increases cell renewal to clarify and unclog pores
- No. 80: Skin Relief – Calming Algae Complex – reduces redness and calms skin
- No. 86: Skin Moisture Solution – HA solution that locks moisture into the skin
- No. 91: Skin Reviver – Power Green Ferment – energizes, and replenishes the skins nutrients
- No. 93: Skin Fortifier – Strength & Recovery Tonic – rebuilds and strengthens skin’s barrier
I had a quick play with each one and No. 86 really grabbed my attention. One thing that I am missing from my professional makeup skincare kit is a fast-acting serum with visible results ‘on the day’ for use on my mature clients. The best skincare will always show its benefit over time. The No. 86 Skin Moisture Solution does this but also has immediate benefits.
Here’s what Bobbi Brown have to say about it.
A concentrated infusion of moisture featuring Hyaluronic Acid Complex to pull moisture to the skin and support skin’s natural moisturising factor. Formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate, a naturally derived moisture magnet that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It draws moisture to skin while stimulating skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid production.
I divided the back of my hand into three parts. I applied a few drops to the back on my hand and lightly massaged in to two of the ‘sections’. I then applied moisturiser on the middle section and also the section without the treatment. The moisturiser alone left my skin smooth and hydrated. The treatment instantly gave my skin a hydration boost and smoother appearance and smoother feel. After a minute or two, the section in the middle (with treatment and moisturiser) was just perfectly smooth and hydrated.
This is the one for me. Fast acting and effective when layered with the right moisturiser. Job done.
