Best known for understated products, Bobbi Brown is making it even easier to go au natural, if the run and go is your typical modus operandi. The brand recently put the power to their skin care game with the release of Bobbi Brown Remedies — "targeted solutions for every skin issue" from chapped skin to zit killers. I normally side-eye makeup brands venturing into skin territory, but all reviews report that Bobbi Brown's new skin care line is killing the game in the best way. Here's what to know.
The line focuses on customization, which is par for the course in today's DIY world (other examples include: Anastasia Beverly Hills' lip palette, this service that literally designs your perfect haircare regimen). Great news for people who only want to splurge on things made for their specific problem, which is probably everyone. The guide on their website walks you through the science behind your skin concern, and then explains how your specific Remedy will help. Transparency: great.
Take a breath, let's dive in.
The collection includes Skin Clarifier №75 for pores and acne, a combo of sea buckthorn oil, rosehip oil, saw palmetto oil, and manuka oil (!) to exfoliate and control sebum.
Skin Clarifier №91 tackles dullness with chlorella, "Energen Complex" and the extracts of fresh kale, spinach and brussels sprouts (belying its Power Greens name with a golden brown color), and dryness gets a boost with №86's hyaluronic acid.
No surprise in the inclusion of hyaluronic acid, but if it works, it works.
While №80 abates redness and irritation with three red algae derivates.
Lastly, Skin Salve №57 heals chap and cracks as a "skin bandage." Get back, winter. You're not wanted here.
Power-heavy do-it-all treatments are all well and good, but only if you need everything done. These guys are tailored to your needs — although I must warn you, it's a Pokemon situation. Gotta catch 'em all.
