A Successful Impulse Purchase And What Came After It
Recently I was wandering through the Nordstrom beauty area, one of my very favorite places to wander, and stopped at the Bobbi Brown counter.
I wasn’t searching for anything, but my eyes caught a holiday gift set sample that I wanted to get a feel for.
I tested the moisturizer that was sitting out as a sample and was blown away at how thick and hydrating it was. I mean, my skin was immediately radiant with moisture. An employee came over to help me and explain a bit more about Bobbi Brown skincare and I found myself leaving with a few sample containers in my bag.
Sidenote: you know you can ask for samples of some products at Sephora and Nordstrom, right? I mean, they can’t easily give you a sample of eyeshadow or pencil, but they certainly can of a liquid, cream, or loose powder product! Don’t be afraid to ask!
I have been a long-time user and fan of Bobbi Brown makeup but didn’t really explore much of the skincare beyond using the Face Base primer that Andreea recommended a few years ago.
After spending a few days trying the samples, I ended up ordering the Extra Repair Moisturizing Cream because I loved it so much. I also really enjoyed the Extra Repair Moisture Balm, which as SPF 25, for a super-rich cream.
During a few of the Black Friday/Cyber Weekend sales, I replenished a few favorites while adding a few new things to my cart. I have really enjoyed using the Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm, either under makeup or on its own! I’m also testing out some of the Face Oil that came with a kit.
I’ll continue to update as I explore more into the line, but for right now I just wanted to share how great the Extra Repair Moisturizing Cream is for those of us with dry skin!
As someone who loves trying out new skincare and beauty, I just want to remind you that my testing and exploration of new brands doesn’t mean that I dislike products I’ve mentioned here in the past. For example, a few brands that I’ve sung praises for (and still do!!) are Fresh, Ole Henricksen, and Biossance.
