Bobbi Brown Hydrate & Glow Skincare Set*

As much as I absolutely adore Bobbi Brown’s makeup, I feel like their skincare is sometimes a little forgotten about. Their Rich Face Base is one of my dry skin must-haves, and I’ve had a bottle of their Beach Fragrance in my collection for as long as I can remember, so when the new Hydrate & Glow set appeared through the letterbox, I was absolutely delighted!

Designed to combat winter dryness and dullness, the Hydrate & Glow set is a trio of must-haves which will have you shining well into 2020! Rather incredibly, the set contains to full-sized products, as well as a very generously sized eye cream (can more come packaged like this please? I’m obsessed) and the trio is the perfect foundation products to create a naturally glowy look which can take you from day to night.

First up is the Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm in Golden Glow – a perfect moisturiser substitute if you’ve got oily skin, but if you’re dry like me, this is a perfect moisture addition to be patted on over your regular moisturiser. If you’re heading out for the evening, and want even more glow, you can even pat a little of the balm into shoulders and collar bones, so they glisten in low light!

For day I like to pat the balm onto the high points of my face, and blend well with my fingertips. The balm is lightly tined, and it’s perfect to achieve a flawless base. It allows my foundations or tinted moisturiser of choice to slide only easily too – and I’ve noticed that on days when I’m wearing the balm, that not only does my skin look better, but my makeup wears for longer too!

Next up in the trio is the travel-sized Hydrating Eye Cream, which comes packaged like a concealer or lip gloss. Honestly, I’m obsessed with this eye cream – I’ve bought countless pots of the stuff before, but this miniature version has gone¬†straight into my travel bag.

Applying the moisturiser with the doe foot applicator is incredibly easy, and I just dot a little of the formula around the orbital bone, then pat in. Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Eye Cream always feels super nourishing without being overwhelming – even for day use. It sinks easily in to skin, so you’re not left with a greasy under eye area.

Last up is probably my most reached-for product from the trio, the Extra Lip Tint, which gives lips a beautiful golden-flecked sheen. I fell in love with these balms earlier in the year (post here) as they are just the easiest and most comfortable way to add a little moisture and colour into your makeup during the day.

You can’t seem to buy this exact shade of Extra Lip Tint outside of this set, and it’s a great one for everyday use. I always feel like a bright lip is a little much for daytime, and I much prefer a gorgeous neutral, so having a balm like this to hand makes mornings so much easier.

There’s no overwhelming scent or fragrance with the Lip Tints, and they positively glide on, leaving lips feeling nicely hydrated. The Tint gives lips a beautiful rosiness, and the golden flecks shine in the light.

This set is so perfectly thought out – I’ve been using all three of the products pretty much daily since I received it, and I can’t think of a better way to get your skin prep sorted before the the New Year!

Bobbi Brown Hydrate & Glow Kit is priced at £50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
