All about: the all new, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Extra Glow Collection

A product I never knew I needed and then tried and found I couldn’t live without, Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm is a creamy moisturising formula that is perfect for dry or older skins. It has a very fine, pearlised pale gold shimmer to give skin an illuminated, radiant, healthy effect, and it can be used as a highlighter or in any number of other ways depending on your skin type and desired end result.
The texture gives skin a bit of a hydration boost whenever its needed, and it makes mine feel so soft and supple too. I use the clever formula under my chosen foundation to add a subtle glow, and notice within minutes if I forget to apply it. If you have dry skin like me you can apply a full face under a thin layer of foundation for a your-skin-but-better look, or even to perk up a more mattifying base. Don’t forget your usual moisturiser though as this isn’t a substitute, just a little something extra! The subtle sheen almost tricks the eye into seeing healthy, radiant skin without seeing “shimmer” as such, so don’t be afraid to play with this if you’re usually averse to a little shine. Last up, I really like the packaging – and not just for its sleek, minimalist style. The pump twists up and is easy to control, so you can dispense just the right amount
Having said all of this, I was super excited to hear that Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has just introduced the Extra Glow Collection - a beauty dream team of products for creating fresh, glowing skin that includes my beloved Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm in new radiance-reviving shades! You can now get an illuminating pink and bronze glow with the same great moisturising, plumping and instant radiance benefits of the original, and I am thus far loving Golden Glow for a summery boost. They come with an RRP of $120 but a little definitely goes a long way (especially when the air is humid), and I pretty much guarantee you’ll fall in love with the formula from the get go.
As well as a highlighting powder and a handy, portable skincare palette that features Extra Face Oil, Remedies Skin Salve No. 57 and Extra Soothing Balm, the Extra Glow Collection also features a line up of Extra Lip Tint ultra-moisturising lip stains that have all the benefits of a balm. This season, the classic Bare Pink shade comes with a slight twist in the form of Bare Pink Sparkle - a limited edition pearl version that blends with the natural tone of your lips to enhance and offer an extra soft summer glow, creating the perfect just-for-you shade. With an RRP of $65 this is next on my wish list, and should be on yours too!
