Glow by Dr. Brandt.
A little history — I’m 22 and I’ve struggled with acne since around age 13. I’d describe my acne as mild, with occasional breakouts (that make me want to crawl into a cave and hide). Typically, I deal with many small, but stubborn, bumps. Other than that, my skin is on the oily side. That being said, I’ve tried soooo many different skin care products. I don’t even bother with most drug store brands anymore. Honestly, I’d be terrified to add up my total purchases in high-end skin care. There’s almost no amount I wouldn’t spend for results! Ok, now that the air is clear …
After speaking with my lovely mother who has recently become an estitician, I decided I should use retinol. Salicylic, BP, etc… I see those ingredients as a waste of my time, to be frank. Been there done that. A few years back I used Retin-A-Micro, and while i thought it was helpful, it didn’t completely clear my skin, just helped it be “not so bad.” Anyways, I have only used Glow by Dr. Brandt for one week today after picking up the kit from Sephora for $65. You use the gray bottle at night after cleansing and toning, and the pink bottle in the morning after cleansing and toning as a moisturizer. So far the results are remarkable considering it’s been one week, and you should give your products 4 weeks to see results. One side of my face was really broken out and embarassing and these products aren’t only improving the texture of my nasty side, they are evening out my entire face, softening my skin, providing a natural radiance, and restoring my confidence (not to be too cheesy but it’s true). The last few days I have done something I haven’t done since middle school. I have been going all day without any kind of foundation. I have the Skin79 hot pink BB cream, but lately, I haven’t even needed to use that. I’ve just been using an Origins concealer to touch up on spots that are still red, as the skin heals from nasties. It’s hard to believe that in one week, I already have been complimented on my skin. The full sized products are a bit pricy ($85 for the overnight retinol resurfacing and $65 for moisturizer) but I’d reccommend at least tring the $65 kit for acne or uneven, dull skin, or really just to look famous. Seriously.
