A few years back when Bobbi Brown introduced her “Extra” line, my skin was going through an extremely dry phase and the Extra line was a lifesaver. My skin couldn’t get enough moisture and so many things I tried irritated my skin and it never felt moisturized enough or like it would heal. I gave several of the Bobbi Brown Extra skincare products a try and it was like a miracle to my skin. Finally, it felt like it was moisturized enough and it wasn’t irritated by pore clogging products and the scent was clean and soothing and I was in love.
I rarely need that much intensity to my moisturizers any longer, but I know when I may need it again what really works. Recently I was testing a skincare line that caused me major irritation – red dry patches all over my face and neck and it even hurt! That’s when I remembered the Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil. I slathered my face and neck (well, no need to slather as a little goes a long, long way) with Extra Face Oil and immediately it started calming my skin and within 2 days my skin did a complete 180° turnaround. I no longer felt like I wanted to scratch my skin off and the red dry patches healed up very quickly. I also used this when a zit appears. For my skin it makes a zit disappear faster than any anti-acne cream I’ve ever tried. Just dab a bit on the zit and the next day it’s gone.
It’s made with Vitamin E and a blend of sesame, sweet almond, olive and jojoba oils. For me, it’s a skin healer.
