Birchbox Breakdown

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but rubies have definitely earned a place in our inner circle. In recent years, ruby laser procedures have gained popularity in dermatology offices for their ability to brighten dull, uneven complexions. The micronized ruby crystals in this special moisturizer enable us to accomplish the same feat at home. We smooth it on regularly for revitalized, luminous skin.

How to Use

Wash face and pat dry; then gently apply a thin layer of product. After it’s absorbed, follow up with sunblock with UV protection (retinol can make skin especially sensitive to sunlight). Note: Never use this with other exfoliating products.

I think it actually makes a difference!
Purchased

I have tried so many face creams that I've definitely lost count. Some seem to make a difference, but I'm never really sure if it really is or if I've imagined it. I bought this one in full size and I swear I see results. My skin is softer. Wrinkles and creases are less apparent. I honestly think I look younger. Highly recommended.

Love this brand

I truely love this brand. Not only do the products have a great scent, I can really see and feel results when I am using them. The only issue I have with them is the price, however with the results, the price is worth it!

A little drying!
Purchased

I'm 23 and trying to get ahead of the game. I use this very sparingly, meaning 1-2x a month, if that. I had planned for once a week, but after seeing the drying effects it had along with the fact that after use I suddenly acquired blackheads on my forehead (plus the good, expected effects), I've cut down significantly. I also bought a new face sunscreen since I read about needing to do so once you start to use retinol. I suppose if your foundation has high enough SPF you could get away with that too. I suspect that had a lot to do with the dryness.

dr brandt glows

My favorite thing about this face cream is the subtle sheen it has. It really does give me a kind of glow. I don't feel like it's done a whole lot more than that. I don't think it has great benefits of tightening and reducing signs of aging except when it is on, and that is more of a reflective sheen that makes me look a bit more youthful without looking oily or greasy. I also wish the smell were different. It is kind of musky and not super pleasant to wear on your face. Overall I would recommend trying this product out in a sample size and going from there. I tried a couple sample sizes before I committed to buying the full size and I'm happy I did it that way. I did know what to expect and appreciate it for the money more.
