Birchbox Breakdown

When we notice pesky red spots, hyperpigmentation, or a dull cast to our complexions, we don’ t get mad—we get even. Our weapon of choice? This correcting and perfecting CC cream from celebrity dermatologist Dr. Brandt. The product not only minimizes imperfections and evens tone, but offers six other antiaging benefits: It illuminates, primes, smooths, lightly hydrates, and rejuvenates. Furthermore, it offers SPF 30 protection and works well for light-to-medium skin tones. Revenge has never been so sweet (nor has our complexion ever been so clear).

How it Works

This daily all-in-one cream contains dr. brandt®’s signature Ruby Crystal Complex to balance and illuminate your skin. A soft-focus powder helps blur imperfections, pearl and gold pigments work to neutralize redness, and ruby crystals diffuse light for a trifecta of radiance. It’s also infused with vitamin C to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and diminish age spots. Patience has never been our strong suit, so we love that one application leaves our skin feeling soft and supple, and that adding concealer and foundation is optional.

How to Use

Shake well before use. Apply evenly over clean face in the morning. Use alone, or as a primer underneath foundation for more coverage.

dr. brandt® CC glow with signature RUBY CRYSTAL
Purchased

This is a great product. It is very light and moisturizes you skin wonderfully. It did even my tones out on my skin without looking strange as some similar products might. I really like this product for a quick fix on the weekends before going to the grocery. Very nice and I would fully recommend.

Sensitive skin beware

I have a mild acrylate allergy from years of fake nails. I usually don't have much of a problem, but this stuff has so much methyl methacrylate that it literally burned my face. Can't be good for skin of any kind!

Cc cream
Purchased

The only thing I do not like about this cc cream is that it separates . You have to be sure to shake it every time you use it . It is a goo product but I wish it had a better consistancy

Love it!

The first few times I used it I didn't shake it up enough and thought it was a hot mess. It came out oily and chunky. Then, I really gave it a good shake and now it is my favorite foundation/moisturizer/illuminator. I'm not even sure what to call it. I no longer need to apply a moisturizer and a concealer. This does the job of both and leaves my damaged skin looking radiant. If you catch it in just the right light there is even a glittery shimmer to it (very subtle.) I'm going to bite the bullet and get this as my new daily skincare product.

I'll keep looking
Purchased

I was looking for something that was moisturizing, gave me minimal coverage with a shimmer, and possibly some antiaging benifits. I agree with the other reviews here. It itsn't very moisturizing, seperates, I have to really work to spread it over my face, I can't really wear it under my mineral foundation because it is just too much coverage. It's okay by itself, I won't be purchasing it again given how much it costs in addition.

LOVE this product

I love this product from Dr. Brandt. I wish it were more affordable. It gives my skin a nice tinted glow. The only thing is you have to make sure you shake it really well before applying because the ingredients separate and comes out oily.

Nice bb with SPF
Purchased

I bought this because I loved the retinol glow product. This is supposed to have the same glow effect but it didn't. It also was too dark for my fair skin. And not moisturizing. All in all it's ok and I'm using it up because it has SPF.

dr. brandt® CC glow with signature RUBY CRYSTAL
Purchased

I love the way this cream gives my skin a beautiful warm glow. It's a bit heavy going on, but applying it lightly and blending it well helped with the heaviness of it. I like to use it with my concealer to get better coverage. It doesn't cover very well on its own, in my opinion. Overall, I think this is a great product!

Great alone - horrible with other products
Purchased

I LOVE this product and HATE it at the same time. As soon as I put it on, it makes me glow, covers up all of the imperfections, and does everything it says it would. As soon as I add any other products over or under it (moisturizer, foundation, even a light dusting of powder) it immediately starts to separate and makes me look like my face is melting off.

Go for it if you're wearing this by itself - you'll adore it!

Light wieght and shimmery
Purchased

I suffer from blemishes at 25 and I'm always looking for products to cover it up, but heal my skin at the same time. I really like this cream, however you really have to shake it or else its separated and liquidy.
