Some of Bobbi Brown skin care items were eye opening experience for me at the time (7-9 years ago) just because back then Soothing balms, Facial oils were not so widely used as now(most lines now carry some type of facial oils, etc), at the time it was more like "eeeeekkk, putting oils on face are BAD",,, so to speak. Over the past,,,about a lil less than a decade or so, I tried most of her skincare lines and I am here to share what my experience was like with some of my Bobbi Brown's skincare to prep my skin.
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic. It is a toner and it does hydrate as it claims (not much of lasting power since it's a toner, but I didn't have to rush myself to put moisturizer on). It smells soothing, refreshing like lavender(it has lavender in it), not in a overpowering way. It did what I expected it to do. Great way to calm/refresh your skin especially in the morning. I wasn't crazy about the bottle opening, you can end up pouring out too much, so it's best to use a cotton pad to cover the opening to wet the pad then wipe your face. The bottle was light weight plastic material that was not too stiff, so I didn't have to worry about breaking it or my bathroom tile if I accidentally dropped it.
