If it is possible to be 'in love' with a skin care brand, then I am head over heels with Dr.Brandt Skincare! About a month ago, I was given the opportunity to review some of the best skincare products I have ever tried! My skin has been extremely dry with the colder weather, and I thought it was because I was finally starting to look old! Thankfully, Dr, Brandt Skincare products saved my skin, just like a handsome Prince rescues a Princess, and made me look young again!
Okay, that might sound like a silly comparison, but I truly do feel like a beautiful, and I might add, "young" princess after using these miracle products. Here is a look at a few of my newest favorite products from Dr. Brandt – Radiance Resurfacing Foam, Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask, and Neck Sculpting Cream.
Radiance Resurfacing Foam
A cream-to-foam packed with alpha hydroxy acids and paired with a no-blade tool that, together, lift away dead skin cells to reveal a fresh, radiant, super-hydrated complexion. You simply apply the cream to your entire face, and then you use the no-blade tool, and glide in an upward motion with gentle pressure to lift away the layer of foam. You then rub the remaining cream into your skin.
Neck Sculpting Cream
Neck Sculpting Cream is a neck rejuvenation formula and application process that combines a luxurious cream with traditional Gua Sha technique from Eastern Chinese Medicine. Massaged into skin with the rose quartz tool, it leaves the neck and jaw area looking more toned, sculpted and smooth while increasing the feeling of firmness. Additionally, the product targets “tech neck”, which are the lines below the neck caused by constantly looking down at one’s electronic devices. With continued use, the results are dramatic: enjoy significantly reduced appearance of volume under the chin for a more sculpted looking neck and jawline that appears more youthful and rejuvenated.
Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask
A deeply hydrating recovery sleeping mask that balances skin’s naturally-occurring flora and locks in moisture overnight to hydrate, reduce redness, and soothe signs of irritation. This leave-on mask works through the night to reduce redness and signs of irritation while restoring hydration to dry skin in 24 hours. Skin wakes up with a natural glow, looking and feeling refresh, soothed, nourished, and hydrated
Here are the results, and I am loving them!
I have always loved Avon. My grandma was an Avon lady. My mother always used it, too. Avon is a brand that has my complete trust because I know that their products are made of only the highest quality of ingredients.
I was excited to find out that Avon’s newest skincare innovation, NutraEffects, has recently launched on Avon.com. I knew this was something I wanted to try out.
INTRODUCING AVON NUTRAEFFECTS
HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE SEED FOR ULTIMATE SKIN HEALTH
A seed is one of nature’s most powerful creations, it’s the source of life itself. Avon NutraEffects has harnessed this power into its breakthrough Active Seed Complex. The complex is made with Chia Seeds which are used as the hydrating base ingredient across all of the products within the range. The powerful hydration quality comes from the blend of Chia Seeds which can hold up to 12x their weight in water and are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. In addition to this, each NutraEffects formula is then blended with other nutrient rich seeds and skin loving antioxidants to target one of four skin care needs: hydration, balance, radiance, and signs of aging.
The combinations deliver healthier, more beautiful skin from day one. All products are suitable for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, and paraben- and dye-free. The collection includes:

Nectifirm by Revision Skincare is formulated for firming the neck and decolletage. Why have a saggy neck and wrinkly cleavage when there is a solution out there? Nectifirm is the only product out there designed to target those specific areas, using peptide and vitamins C and E.
My mother is 64 years old, and she is bothered by the loose skin she has on her neck. She calls it her 'turkey neck.' I suggested that she should give Nectifirm a try. That was three weeks ago. As of today, my mom reports that her skin on her neck has tightened, and is much firmer. I truly wish I had a before and after picture of my mom because the improvement is truly significant! If you scroll down you can see before and after pictures I have borrowed from Revision Skincare's website.
