BOBBI BROWN MUST HAVE KIT – Product Review

As someone who’s been spending a lot of time on planes and traveling during the last year and a half {more than the average person thanks to my Eilat-Tel Aviv trips and random trips overseas 😉 }, I was very happy to receive a travel kit with mini products to review from BOBBI BROWN, that returned to the shelves for the second time in a limited edition.

One of the heaviest and bulkiest things I pack for every trip is my makeup bag, and it just keeps on growing from day to day…. So if there’s a product that can substitute this whole mess, I’ll be the first one to try it!

The kit is called “Mini Must Have Kit” and is said to include everything you need to enjoy a perfect look anywhere you are, and is basically a substitute for the clumsy makeup back when you’re away from home.

Does it really fulfill all of the promises? As far as I understood, the first time they launched this kit people snatched them off of the shelves, but I’m a bit skeptic that such a small kit could be a worthy substitute for my usual products.

Shall we begin this review?

The “Mini Must Have Kit” includes 6 products in a special size for traveling that come in a black classic makeup bag with a silver zipper and the company’s logo:

BB CREAM SPF35 – I tend to use a concealer on a daily basis in order to cover problematic areas, and when I go out in the evening, I like using MAC’s foundation.

Honestly, I’m not sure why BB Cream products never appealed to me so much despite all the hype there was around it when they first came out; maybe it’s because I’m so addicted to MAC’s concealer and foundation, and I just didn’t want to look for a replacement for them.

Anyway, I really liked BOBBI BROWN’S BB cream for a few reasons.

First of all, it has an amazing texture – it is super light-weight, it’s not oily at all and it’s very easy to apply on your face with your fingers.

Despite the thoughts I had about BB products, this cream gives medium coverage and helps conceal redness, so my skin looks relatively even after using it. If you don’t have scars or very noticeable pimples on your face, this amount of coverage should be enough for you.

Additionally, you don’t need to use a lot of this product to get complete coverage, so it creates a very natural look {doesn’t create the “cakey” effect we’re all so scared of}, and it leaves the skin feeling light and clean.

The shade that came in the kit was medium, and it blended in excellently with my skin tone, and even added a bright and glowing look to my face.

Another advantage of this product is that it contains SPF 35, while most competitors offer a level of protection of up to SPF 25, so it provides very high protection during summer days and sunny winter days.

The mini size is 15 ml.

LONG-WEAR CREAM SHADOW STICK – The eyeshadow that comes with the kit is the shade “Sand Dune”, a nude-brown shade that’s a little shimmery and that totally completes my natural-everyday look, and gently outlines the eye.

It has a pleasant creamy texture and you could blend the eyeshadow with your fingers to get the ombré look.

It’s long lasting, just like it says on the product – the eyeshadow sets in place, doesn’t smudge and it doesn’t get clumpy in the eyelid crease.

I really, really liked it… especially because I don’t like dealing with eyeshadow on a daily basis and applying this eyeshadow is very fast – it actually took me about half a minute to apply this product on both of my eyes!

SMOKEY EYE MASCARA – The mascara that comes in this kit completely does the job. It comes with a long soft brush that reaches all of the lashes, lengthens and thickens them and doesn’t create any lumps. I applied 2 layers to get the look I like.

The mini size of this product is 3 ml.

POT ROUGE Cream Blush – One of my favorite products in this kit was the blush/lip gloss. It came in the beautiful shade “PALE PINK” that gives you the perfect rosy cheeks and subtle rosy lips.

The texture is divine in my opinion. It’s very pleasant to touch and easy to apply and blend on your face – it’s simply magic. It really reminds me of SMASHBOX’s blush but the shade is a little more noticeable on the cheeks.

I don’t have anything else to add about this product – it’s perfect and I’m in love with it

The mini size of this product is 1.7 g.

LIP GLOSS CRYSTAL – I don’t have much to say about this product since I don’t really like lip glosses because of their sticky textures and the way they feel on my lips {especially on stormy days when my hair flies around and starts sticking to my lips…}.

It creates a very nice look when using it with the POT ROUGE, so if you don’t have a problem with lip glosses, you should definitely go for this.

The mini size of this product is 7 ml.

SOOTHING CLEANSING OIL – This is a facial skin cleanser based on oils and jasmine and has an amazing scent that gives you the feeling you’re in a spa treatment, exactly like BOBBI BROWN’S amazing face cream.

The truth is that I was a little worried about using oil to clean my face because my skin is quite sensitive and is prone to pimples if I don’t handle it the right way. My usual cleansing routine involves using micellar water to clean my skin and a biphasic makeup remover to remove the makeup from my eyes.

I decided to give the cleansing oil a chance because I read a lot of great reviews praising this product, so I assumed it couldn’t be bad.

In order to remove makeup with the oil, you have to press the pump 4-5 times to release the product onto your hands, and start by massaging your facial skin just with the oil. After that, wet your hands a little and continue massaging gently. Finally, wash your face well with warm water and wipe your face by patting it gently with a clean towel {of course}.

OK, I was very skeptic, and even more afraid to spread the oil all over my face, but the feeling of my skin after the cleansing was amazing!!

The skin stayed very soft, even before I applied the cream, and I didn’t feel a tingling sensation or discomfort that many other makeup removers cause.

In addition, this product is especially good for traveling because you don’t need cotton to remove your makeup – just your hands and water.

I highly recommend it!

The mini size of this product is 30 ml.

In my opinion this mini kit is fabulous – not only is it very convenient and comfortable for traveling, but it’s also a great way to try out new products without going broke {the price of the kit is only 200 shekels – totally worth it when considering the VFM}.

The only downside about this product is the absence of a small concealer for days you need extra coverage, after all, considering the fatigue that comes with the traveling and the weather changes, I think that concealer is a must-have in any traveling kit. What do you think?
