What’s unique about Bobbi Brown Buffing Grains is that this product does not come in a cream. As you can see from the picture, these are literally grains. Instead of having to settle for the cream that comes along with the product, you can add this product to your favorite cleanser. This factor makes this product extremely versatile. Lately, I’ve been using Biotherm’s Purifying Pore Refining Crystal Gel as a cleanser and I love that I add this to my cleanser and skip a step. This was genius on Bobbi Brown’s part. Although loose grains can make this a little tricky to use at times, I think this product more than makes up for that. In addition, this product’s strength could show MAC’s a thing or two. I feel like I’m getting the job done with I use this.
