Bobbi Brown Extra Bright Advanced Moisture Lotion

A really good skincare regime is critical to showing up to the party later in life without looking like you just did battle. Over time our skin starts to show the ravages of our environment — you know the drill, so I won’t march you down to those frontlines once again.

Bobbi Brown Extra Bright Advanced Moisture Lotion is a new one for me, lovingly given to me by a friend at the company, and I have to say, I’m pretty into it for a couple of reasons.

First, this is something of a combination toner/serum, as opposed to a moisturizer. When it comes out of the bottle it looks almost like water, but it’s incredibly silky feeling. This glides over your skin like chiffon, and it functions as a toner to really prep your skin for anything else you may apply.

Loaded with licorice and and a proprietary SuperCitrys Complex, which is a brightening mix of vitamin C, citrus unshiu peel extract, and grapefruit and lime extracts, this lotion is really built from scratch tot help fight visible irritation and hyper-pigmentation

Now, like I said, I don’t really think this is much of a moisturizer, though it did leave my skin feeling silky smooth at first. If you don’t need moisturizer, this is kind of a good alternative to a toner/serum routine, thus saving you time with a one product application.
