Bobbi Brown EXTRA Skincare to Go Set

Nordstrom is offering an exclusive Bobbi Brown EXTRA Skincare to Go Set ($70) for travelers. Bobbi put together the ultimate skin care set to comfort your skin whether you're on the plane, skiing, or trekking through the desert.

The set includes Balm Rinse (1 oz), Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 (0.5 oz), Eye Balm (0.2 oz), Soothing Balm (0.2 oz), and Face Oil (0.1 oz), plus an empty jar (0.5 oz) that you can custom fill with your favorite Bobbi Brown moisturizer - or anything else you want to take along.

I have used all of these products, always turning to them during the winter. They are seriously moisturizing. To my younger readers: I wouldn't recommend these to women (or men) who don't need a serious moisture boost.

EXTRAs are balm-based products formulated with natural plant extracts, such as pure orange, rosemary, and olive oil. The EXTRA Moisturizing Balm, Bobbi's most luxurious face cream, provides ultimate hydration for extremely dry or dehydrated skin. EXTRA Moisturizing Balm is formulated with petrolatum and shea butter to intensively hydrate skin, aloe and cucumber to calm and soothe stressed skin, and vitamin A and carrot extract to firm skin and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It has an "herby" scent from the essential oil blend of rosemary, geranium, ylang ylang, and moroccan chamomile.

The EXTRA Eye Balm is an ideal night treatment for the skin around the eyes. I use it every winter because it's a super-rich, concentrated, hydrating eye balm that helps counteract the effects of fatigue and dryness. EXTRA Eye Balm helps fight puffiness; reduces the look of fine, dry lines; and soothes and protects skin. It's ophthalmologist tested, so you can be sure it's safe.

The EXTRA Balm Rinse removes all traces of makeup and impurities quickly and completely. It leaves skin with a smooth, cushiony finish and instantly refreshed. You can use it daily for dry skin or as a night treatment when your skin needs more hydration.

The EXTRA Face Oil comforts very dry skin. The lightweight formula absorbs easily and immediately moisturizes, softens, and conditions skin with an oil blend of sesame, sweet almond, olive, and jojoba. Vitamin E is included to protect the skin from environmental damage. With continued use, EXTRA Face Oil helps keep skin soft and supple. It's also fragranced with a blend of natural essential oils, including neroli, patchouli, lavender, and sandalwood.

The EXTRA Soothing Balm is a dense, concentrated balm with exotic plant extracts, such as avocado, geranium, and rosemary oils, can be used anywhere extra hydration is needed - on lips, cuticles, and heels. EXTRA Soothing Balm can also be applied lightly over makeup to give cheeks that desired, healthy glow. Bobbi says a little goes a long way, and I can second that! This is my favorite product of the set.

Of course, it's a better deal to purchase these products in full sizes, and you can do that wherever Bobbi Brown products are sold. The travel set is made for traveling - or for those who want to try the EXTRAs without making a full commitment. You can find the set at or in Nordstrom stores.
