In my makeup kit…Bobbi Brown Soothing Balm

Posted by on Sep 27, 2011

I’m using Bobbi Brown’s EXTRA Soothing Balm ( It’s one of those exceptional products that fit the category of a skincare and makeup item because it works equally well OVER and UNDER makeup.

What I love about it and things you should know:

  1. The texture is dense and a little goes a long way. Scrape a small amount out of the pot and warm it up in your fingertips before applying to your face or body.
  2. It’s perfect for people who have very dry, cracked or flaky skin. It soothes and flattens the skin, and works well as a base under makeup.
  3. If your makeup is looking a little tired, matte or cake-y this will refresh it instantly. Simply pat it on your face to give your skin a subtle sheen without a greasy residue.
  4. The geranium and rosemary oils give the balm an interesting scent. If your skin or nose is sensitive, you should check this out before buying it.
