Bobbi Brown has launched a new facial moisturizer for Summer, Oil Control Lotion SPF 15 ($45). This milky, oil-free, lightweight moisturizer contains seaweed to soothe the skin and lavender to control redness, inflammation, and irritation.
It's hydrating, calming, and it leaves your complexion soft, supple, and best of all — during the muggy summertime months — matte. It is recommended especially for those with oily skin to normal skin, but it's fine for combination skin, too.
I love that my face is left feeling velvety and smooth — it's as though I've just applied a primer under my makeup. The only slight drawback is the scent. With all of that lavender you'd think it would mask the smell of sunscreen, but no such luck. It's not a deal breaker, but nonetheless, I thought I'd mention it.
