It’s summertime and the living is easy; that is, until it’s time to bust out that extensive morning makeup routine. We say, let’s throw our usual spackle and paint out the window in favor of something lighter, brighter, and multitasking. Who’s with us?
Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repair SPF 25 Moisturizing Balm isn’t new to the market, but it is one of the line’s unsung heroes that certainly deserves a place in the sun—and on your vanity.
It must be noted that this isn’t your typical moisturizer. This is a balm, meaning it provides even more moisturizing and anti-aging benefits than a lighter-weight moisturizer.
When you first unscrew the top, you’ll be met with a subtle, fresh scent that’s almost spa like. You might be tempted to give that bottle a closer sniff, we won’t judge.
After you’ve gotten your fragrance fill and it’s time to apply, just remember that a little goes a long way. We suggest lightly dabbing your finger into the formula, rather than scooping. Swipe across the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, and even under the eyes. You can layer on more as needed, but don’t go too heavy-handed—you certainly don’t want to waste this stuff.
WATCH: Every Southern Girl Needs This Sweatproof Makeup Look
Blush and a coat or two of mascara are all you need to finish up your no-frills, fresh look. That being said, give your face a once-over with setting powder if you aren’t one for a dewy complexion. As for us? We’re all about embracing the inventible shine that Southern humidity brings—we won’t be fighting it.
