I got this Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 in a very funny way. Last month, I went to their store to get a moisturizer for my dry skin. I liked all the other moisturizers, but this extra repair moisturizing balm stood out.

I chose this Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm, and I was ready to purchase it. My jaws dropped when I was told the price. It would have been the most embarrassing moment if I had not bought it because of the other customers there and also after trying out so many different moisturizers. I’m sure you can feel me.

Anyway, this is how I got it. I was praying that it’ll work on me, but after a month I came to terms with the price tag.

I use it daily before I head out. I also use it under my foundation on night outs and CC cream as well. It is light, so it goes on smoothly on my skin. My skin has not drastically changed, but I do notice a visible improvement in the texture and smoothness. I have dry skin so the moisture it provides me with is also the right amount which does not feel heavy at all.

Overall, I am happy that it worked for me though I wish it came at a lower price.

is greasy and expensive
2/5

PROS

Mild fragrance

Thick consistency

CONS

Expensive

Unhygienic packaging

Does not soak in entirely

Leaves a film layer

Can be greasy


I am not so certain if this cream was worth the money I spent. It is nice and thick, but it doesn’t get absorbed, it just sits on top of my skin like a film layer. Having dry skin, I do like those moisturizers that give me a glowy finish, but the layer this cream provides feels greasy. I'll finish the jar but won't be purchasing it again.

Absolutely worth it!!

PROS

Rejuvenates the skin

Paraben-free

Has SPF

None

Gives a radiant finish

Lightens marks and dark spots

CONS

None


This Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 has made such a difference not only in the way my skin looks but has also lightened my skin tone. I have been using it religiously for the past two years even during the summer season. It is a big investment, but the benefits are worth it.

Over the years, my skin looks radiant, smooth and lighter. When I first started using this balm, I had acne scars. Now those scars are nowhere to be seen. It does take time to show results regarding scars and marks, but eventually, it does.

Moisturizes and soothes my skin – awesome!

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 is the best moisturizer for dry skin! Period! During winter season, my skin becomes very dry and I get dry patches on my cheeks. This balm has turned out to be my savior.

I love how well it moisturizes my skin. It soothes my skin, and it stays hydrated throughout the day. Definitely, a must try moisturizer for dry to very dry skin.

CONS

Very expensive

Average product


I still don’t understand the fuss about this balm. I tried using it but it’s just like any other moisturizer. Well, the only difference will be it has an expensive brand tag. I honestly feel it is just another average product. I don’t dislike it, nor do I love it.
