I’ve always been asked why I layer A LOT of skincare products. The basic steps of skincare that we always hear: 1. Toner 2. Serum 3. Moisturizer. This does not mean we only need to use 3 products though. Not all serums or moisturizers are made the same. They do not just hydrate the skin, which most people think. Serums or moisturizers can also target specific skin problems. This means if you have dry skin, fine lines, dark spots, tired and dull skin, you can layer 4 kinds of serum – hydrating, anti-aging, spot-correcting, and revitalizing. Serums are potent formulas that are targeted for a specific purpose, which explains why I layer a number of products. Today, I’m going to talk about potent superblends and targeted solutions from Bobbi Brown Remedies, which I somehow shared in my 5 Tips to Get Glowing Skin.
Bobbi Brown has been known for its flawless makeup that looks real skin. But let’s face it, to get that perfect flawless makeup, one must have good skin too — which is why Bobbi made sure to have a skincare line. I’ve tried a couple and I must say, they are also good! Here are some reviews I posted, in case you missed them: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk and Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil.
Inspired by Bobbi’s holistic approach to beauty, Bobbi Brown Remedies is a collection of six treatments that target specific complexion concerns to enhance skin’s overall health. An apothecary of skin solutions, Remedies can be used individually or layered with skincare and foundation for fully customized skin solutions. Here are the Bobbi Brown Remedies:

Skin Fortifier N°93

This detoxifying, non-stripping formula helps to unclog pores and balance oil levels, while strengthening skin and stabilizing cell turnover for a smoother, healthier-looking complexion.
Skin Salve N°57
Nutrients: A wholesome combination of Shea Butter, Beeswax, Turmeric extract, and Licorice extract act as a breathable “skin bandage” to protect, soften, and restore.
This concentrated balm helps protect and nourish severely irritated, dry, or damaged skin. Skin Salve can be used alone or applied on top of other skincare solutions, including other Remedies, without disrupting their efficacy. Use at night for optimal healing.
Bobbi Brown Remedies Review
I was able to try 2 of the Remedies. Here are my reviews:
Bobbi Brown Skin Reviver Review
Bobbi Brown Skin Reviver’s consistency is quite thin, so when I first used it and squeezed the dropper, I got surprised and had my frist few drops of spills. So as a warning, you cannot just use one fingertip to apply.
The product has a very light scent that reminds me of soy sauce. Sounds odd but it is not really bothersome once applied on the face. It disappears instantly.
It has brownish color but it is actually transparent. It is easily absorbed by the skin and it does not feel sticky at all.
As for the results, I can say it is visible if your skin really looks dull and tired. I can see how brighter my skin is the next day when I use it overnight. But even if you don’t have unhealthy and tired looking skin, you can still benefit from the Skin Reviver as it protects skin from environmental aggressors — something we need for everyday.
Bobbi Brown Skin Moisture Solution Review
To be honest, I was hesitant at first to try this Skin Moisture Solution since it says “Intense Hydration”. I already have oily skin, so I save the heavy skincare products at night. But I was wrong. Well, it does give instant hydration to the skin, but it does not make it extra greasy. What I love about it is it gets absorbed by my skin easily so the sticky feeling disappears in a minute. It works great under makeup as well.
I also brought it with me when I went to New York and it helped in hydrating my skin despite the super cold weather. My skin did not feel dry at all. At the same time, it works even in our tropical humid weather here in Manila. It can work for normal to dry skin, but those with very very dry skin might need to layer a heavy moisturizer.
How to use Bobbi Brown Remedies
Apply 2-3 drops two times per day on clean skin, after toner. Layer different remedies or you can also spot-treat problem areas. N°57 is best applied where needed as the last step in the skincare routine.
Bobbi Brown Remedies are available in all Bobbi Brown counters at PHP 2,250 each.
