Brand Overview

Skin Reviver No 91 is an "antioxidant-rich ferment" (doesn't that sound enticing?) that contains several very good ingredients to benefit all skin types. Think of it as the equivalent of a green veggie smoothie for your skin—and something that can be an excellent boost to your regular moisturizer or serum.

Housed in clear glass bottle, Bobbi Brown's Skin Reviver No 91 is dispensed via a dropper applicator. Its lightweight, fragrance-free hydrating formula smooths easily over skin, setting to a minimally tacky finish that works well under your moisturizer (where you won't feel any residual tackiness).

There's antioxidants aplenty, including uncommon choices like kale, brussels sprouts, and spinach along with long-established antioxidants such as green tea and blueberry. In short, this is an excellent way to fortify skin with a group of ingredients it needs to look and feel its youthful best. It's not the complete picture—skin needs more than what this "reviver" provides; however, it's worthwhile if you're looking to supplement your routine when skin needs a little something extra.

Pros:
  • Rich yet lightweight source of numerous antioxidants.
  • Easy to apply, and works well under moisturizer.
  • Strengthens skin's environmental defenses.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • Clear glass bottle packaging must be kept from routine exposure to natural light.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: Yes

Bobbi Brown At-A-Glance

Strengths: A good cleanser and eye makeup removers; some impressive foundations, with options for all skin types and preferences; very good blushes and eyeshadows (powder and cream); several top-notch mascaras; mostly excellent brushes.

Weaknesses: Multiple moisturizers in jar packaging, otherwise great products hindered with irritating fragrant oils or fragrance components.

It all began with lipsticks. In 1991, New York based makeup artist Bobbi Brown debuted a collection of ten lipsticks at Bergdorf Goodman, expecting to sell about one hundred units in a month. She sold more than that the first day. From there, it's been mostly success after success, as Brown launched her classic foundation stick, wrote her first book, Bobbi Brown Beauty The Ultimate Beauty Resource, and enjoyed continued attention as an in-demand makeup artist and beauty educator.

Today, Bobbi Brown's makeup that continues to excel with superior foundations, true matte blushes and eyeshadows, and with all of the other basics that are essential to anyones makeup wardrobe. It isn't the least bit surprising that this makeup collection continues to do so well, because for many it's one-stop shopping that combines classic makeup application techniques with enough fun-yet-functional products to keep customer's interest piqued season to season.

Turning to the skincare collection, there are a few excellent formulas, but unfortunately, many are packaged in a jar, which means their beneficial ingredients are rendered useless due to air exposure (and bacterial contamination from spatulas or fingers). In addition, some suffer from the inclusion of potent fragrant essential oils. Those that should be avoided are noted in their respective reviews. That aside, color is without a doubt Bobbi Brown's strong pointbut you will find a few sleeper hits among the selection of skincare products.
