You guys have been BEGGING for more beauty favorites… all things makeup, skincare and anti-aging and today I am super excited to share some newness with you, all courtesy of Dr. Brandt!
Dr Brandt Products:
I’ve been using their No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel for YEARS and I know you’ve heard me talk about my affection for this product via Instagram — the love for this runs deep I assure you, especially if you’re wanting to combat those dark under eye circles and puffy eyes that come along with age AND being a mom ;).
Having said that, I’ve also had the opportunity to dive in a bit deeper into more from the Dr. Brandt Skincare line over the past month and am checking in today to give you an overview of some new products that I’ve added into my skincare regimen!
First up, for anyone in my age range trying to combat the lines, listen up– let’s get down to the nitty gritty with my #1 must-have from their latest and greatest, the Needles No More Wrinkle Smoothing Cream. This genie in a bottle is a topical cream you apply directly to your face to help target those pesky fine lines that just won’t go away.
What I love is that it has visibly improved the look of expression lines [something that has always been a HUGE issue for me], especially at my crow’s feet and upper forehead lines that are my two target areas that always seem to stand out to me in pictures. I use the tri-blend Wrinkle Smoothing Cream in the morning AND night after I was my face and apply it to my concerning areas that I mentioned above. If you do have a small crease/indention, it’s best to smooth into those lines and apply a tiny sized drop for each expression line area and voila, let this miracle work its magic.
Want to check it out this peptide and mineral packed solution for yourself?? It’s just $89 for a 15mL bottle BUT use code RS25 to get 25% off your order of regularly priced Dr. Brandt Skincare!
Next up, let’s talk creams and serums… two of their nutrient-packed essentials are the Neck Sculpting Cream and 2% Retinol Complex Serum. Based on other beauty buys that I have tested out in this same category, I’ve absolutely loved the work these two have done on my skin.
With the Neck Sculpting Cream, this skin-surface cream is inspired by Kybella, without having to go through the surgical filler situation. No one wants a double chin, but most of us don’t want to go the invasive route either… that’s where this cream comes to the rescue. This luminious neck cream helps to contour the chin and reduces neck “fullness”. To get a little more technical, the added dose of a glycerin and hyaluronic acid provide suppleness and extra hydration to the skin. And even better is that when you purchase this cream it comes with a rose quartz application tool, too.
As for the Retinol Complex Serum, this overnight serum is one that will help you wake up to more youthful skin and that dewy glow we want each morning! I apply a thin layer each night [usually 3/4 times a week] after I wash my face and then hit the hay. Retinol is one of the best things you can do to reverse the signs of aging and this is a must-have in my medicine cabinet… it also helps to smooth your skin’s texture, soften appearance of fine lines + wrinkles, and helps protect against dryness and redness.
Another newbie to the lineup includes their Needles No More 3D Lip Plumpfix. Inspired by lip injectables, this two-sided serum features a primer on one end that primes by day and then nourishes and restores at night. I’ve used a number of lip masks and serums and this one has most certainly helped to smooth my lip lines and keeping them hydrated. Included in the breakdown of ingredients are shea and moringa butter + a blend of coconut, macadamia, grape Seed, pomace, olive, jojoba and sunflower oils to moisturize this mama’s chapped lippies, especially during these colder months.
Finally, let’s talk about a two-in-one product known as the Pores No More Refiner Primer. Not only does it act as a primer for photo-ready makeup, it’s a quick fix for flawless looking skin throughout the day! I love that this primer has a matte finish [no shiny skin here!] and it also acts as a pore refiner to help your face act as the perfect palette for easy, quick and simple makeup application.
I’ve noticed a visible difference in the endurance of my day-in-and-day-out face makeup after using this goody for a few weeks, especially in how it minimizes the size of pores and hides my skin’s imperfections–and the $45 pricetag is much less than some of the other professional primers I’ve purchased before!
