dr. brandt® skincare

Birchbox Breakdown

Welcome to the new age of multipurpose moisturizers. Sure, dr. brandt light years away® whitening cream hydrates, but the formula also works to neutralize free radicals and inhibit melanin production, targeting discoloration and hyperpigmentation. Oh, and did we mention it also visibly minimizes fine lines, helps skin retain moisture, and imparts a luminous glow?

How it Works

Enriched with dr. brandt’s exclusive Active Marine C Complex, the cream harnesses the power of vitamin C and marine botanicals, including Abyssine®657, astaxanthin and Lightoceane®, to defend skin against environmental stressors and regulate melanin production. The blend of powerful ingredients goes far beyond hydrating skin to actually fade existing discoloration and promote a brighter, more uniform skin tone.

Apply to face and neck in the mornings and at night as part of the dr. brandt light years away® skincare system.

Too Small

Would have needed a larger sample in order to give a review of the product. The sample was way too small to use long enough to test

Smells Good

These smelled really nice and felt good on. The sample sizes are really small and it takes quite awhile to see effectiveness, so I can't really comment on whether it works well or not. I already use a similar product that is more cost effective, so I likely won't purchase.

good texture

it was very easy to apply and was lightweight enough to use under my foundation. I did not see any long term effects with a sample so small.

Okay

This product was a very small sample and I couldn't tell what it did. Maybe if the product was larger I would've seen results.

It worked for me

This product seemed to do the trick for my skin. Unfortunately the sample was not enough to fully test. I am willing to purchase this product when I accumulate enough points.

Too harsh

too harsh on my sensitive skin. I do not want to receive skin products, I signed up for birchbox to get makeup samples.

Too small of sample to really tell

I received a tiny sample of this product. It was hard to tell from the two uses I got out of the sample whether it worked or not. I had no objections to this cream.

Sample size too small

Who knows if this product is effective based on the sample size. It did not lighten or improve my complexion in two uses, and thats about all I got in the sample. Maybe after more it would have worked wonders, but too little to tell.

Sample size was TEENY, but loved it regardless.

I'm in love. The moisturizer left my skin really soft and maybe it was my brain because it says it does this but I felt like my hyper pigmentation has faded… who knows. The sample size is tiny. I might just need to buy the full-size.

Great product

This product left my face feeling very clean and smooth. I also noticed that my skin was brighter after one use. I like the creamy formula- very hydrating.
