That’s the question of the day: can the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick Line Smoother really smooth wrinkles? The short answer is yes, it can. But since I don’t expect you to be satisfied with a simple ‘yes’ here’s the full story. Take a look!
The Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick (51 CHF) is described by the brand as a “magic eraser” that “instantly blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more lineless look” and can be used under as well as over make-up and can be reapplied whenever necessary.
Not surprisingly the formula is chock-full of silicones which do a wonderful job smoothing and blurring the skin by filling in lines and softening the skin’s overall texture.
Ingredients: Dimethicone, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Triethylhexyl Trimellitate, Polysilicone-11, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Hydroxystearic Acid, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Nylon-12, C30-45 Olefin, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton), Ceramide NG, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Tribehenin, PEG-10 Phytosterol, Silica.
Confession time! I already received the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick several months ago for review, but I pretty much chucked it on my not-suitable-for-review pile right away because, well, in order to test a wrinkle-smoothing product you actually need to have a wrinkles. And I don’t. It’s like a 21-year old reviewing a product line for mature skin or a Victoria’s Secret model testing a slimming health shake: it just doesn’t make sense. So in the handout box the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick went, until I read about it again on Beautypedia and saw the 5 star rating it received. Five freakin’ stars! So maybe the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick was worth trying after all… Perhaps people needed to know about this product. Maybe I needed to write about it after all. And that brings us to this review. Like I said, due to my lack of wrinkles – hah! – I wasn’t able to test the product on my face, so tried it on my hands. My hands suffer a lot and I’m pretty sure that my abused pawes look older than those of your average 29-year old. Look:

Pretty amazing, huh?? I didn’t edit my skin in the after pic – obviously – and just look how much smoother my fingers look! The Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick fills in the lines on my fingers beautifully and does a fantastic job blurring my skin’s texture. My camera even had trouble focusing in the after shot since there was so little texture to focus on, can you imagine?
So the bottom line is that yes, the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick really can smooth wrinkles and I can see this working beautifully on crow’s feet, mouth lines and superficial wrinkles. Color me impressed! Fingers crossed that this little miracle worker will still be around in a few years when I need it.
Are you bothered by fine lines and wrinkles? Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick yet?
