Bobbi Brown’s brightening collection is out! Combining moisturization with brightening benefits, with its exclusive SuperCitrus Complex.
Three innovative new products—Extra Bright Advanced Foaming Cleanser, Extra Bright Advanced Moisture Lotion and Extra Bright Advanced Serum. According to Bobbi, these products work together to help reduce the appearance of dark spots, discolorations and effectively hydrate skin.
How it works:
Brightens: Super Citrus Complex is vitamin-enriched with citrus ingredients – Unshiu Peel Extract (young orange extract), Grapefruit, Lime Extract and Vitamin C – that are said to prevent the appearance of new dark spots.
Resurfaces: Glucosamine,gently exfoliates to reveal smoother skin.
Hydrates: Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate, hydrate and plump the skin. It contains Pentavitin® and Cucumber which helps the skin regain a healthy appearance and a soft feel.
Step 1 : The Cleanser. It thoroughly removes makeup and impurities as it lightly exfoliates evening skin tone. It is a creamy- foamy texture that rinses off makeup quickly and easily. Doesn’t leave skin feeling tight as many cleansers seem to do. Contains vitamin E. SRP: $33
My take: As an avid user of waterproof makeup, this foaming cleanser did hold true to its claim of removing makeup quickly! Loved the feel and the scent too. Just a bit goes a long way too. No need to use a whole lot! It left my skin soft and clean. No dryness or irritation. Yep, great job!
Step 2: Extra Bright Advanced Moisture Lotion. It is a light soothing lotion for skin that becomes easily irritated. It is hydrating, yet light. Its formula gently removes dull surface cells to reveal a more even skin tone.
It contains Apple and Scutellaria Extracts, Licorice Extract, Gentian Root Extract and Algae Extract. All of which work together to even out skin, hydrate and comfort irritated skin. SRP: $55
My take: Loved the scent. It is a very soft lotion, and probably best to use in humid climates. My skin felt hydrated, but I still needed to follow with the serum.
Step 3: Extra Bright Advanced Serum.
This highly concentrated brightening serum helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness. It helps smooth skin and the appearance of wrinkles by boosting skin’s hydration. It contains Linoleic Acid and Cholesterol to moisturize skin, and Yeast Extract which helps lessen discoloration and dark spots on the skin. SRP: $108
My take: Again, the scent is amazing! It feels extremely soft to the touch and on the skin. I haven’t used it long enough to see any results pertaining diminishing discoloration, but I’m just happy with the way it hydrates my skin. On application I did notice it gives my skin a pearly shine, which is very welcome!
I agree that this is a super pampering experience, like a day at the spa! The containers are as usual elegant, which adds to the experience. If you can afford it, do try it! Or ask for it for Mother’s Day! If you happen to be a mom!
If I had to choose only one, I’d go for the serum, but that’s because I like concentrated stuff!
