dr. brandt review

I don’t know about you all but I am always on the look out for new skincare. I’ve always been into working to maintain healthy and happy skin… Maybe its because I`m terrified of getting older… (make it stop!!) But imagine my excitement when I received the dr. brandt voxbox complimentary from influenster. I have been trying some of the products for about two weeks now, I wanted to be sure I actually used the products more than once before I wrote my review 🙂

The voxbox came with 9 different products to try out. I have them listed below:

  • Detoxifying Antioxidant Water Booster
  • Magnetight Age-Defier mask
  • Needles No More cream
  • Needles No More 3-D volumizing Mask
  • Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator
  • HydroBiotic Recovery Sleeping Mask
  • Power Dose Vitamon C
  • XYY Face Cream
  • Pore No More Luminizer Primer

Below are my reviews on my top 3 of the voxbox.

Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask- I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mask! From the first time I used it I knew it was going to be my favorite one. It hydrated my skin so well without making it feel like I was overwhelming it with a super heavy cream. My favorite part of this mask is that it is supposed to balance the skin’s naturally occurring flora.. I know to some that may sound a bit icky but I`m all about that life! It makes me feel like its doing more for my skin then just making it feel good.

Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator- This exfoliator is no joke! I barely even applied any pressure to my skin while rubbing this miracle cream on my skin and I could feel the little bits of exfoliates doing their thing!  I’d be lying if I told you I have slacked in the past with exfoliating my skin, but after using this product from the voxbox I feel like I can tell when my face is due for its next round!

Magnetight Age-Defier mask- I was so excited to see this in my influenster package. I always see the short clips on instagram of people using these magnet masks and I felt like I was living out a previous unknown dream of mine… dramatic? I know… Anyways I have to say the removal part wasn’t as effortless as I always thought, I found myself fighting with the tissues you are supposed to use to cover the magnet, but aside from my non-coordinated clumsiness I LOVE THIS MASK. I don’t think I’ve ever used a mask that I could immediately notice a difference in my skin after its off of my face. My skin tone looked so even and it felt genuinely amazing.

DIY ACV Toner

Hello All,

I`m so excited to share with you possibly the easiest DIY skin care I’ve ever tried. I have a friend with the most beautiful skin. She is the girl that people annoyingly always talk about how great her skin is while I cry inside and wonder why that can’t be me!.. Finally, I broke down and asked her what her secret was…..

Apple Cider Vinegar. Now, If you are a pinterest fanatic like myself, this isn’t new news. ACV is all over the place as natural beauty life saver. It has benefits for weightloss, skincare, hair care and MORE. So I did a little more research on how I can use this stuff for my face and brace yourself… 1 part ACV… 2 parts filtered water.. Thats it.. I was equally excited as I was annoyed. Here I have been spending mega bucks on all of this skin care when the secret to my friends beautiful skin was a cheapo bottle of ACV. I died. but my bank account rejoiced.

Now I’ve been using this as a toner twice a day for about 2 weeks and I’ve noticed a change in my skin already. First of all, my skin feels amaze-balls afterwards. No tightness or greasiness, no weird stinging or tingling. just happy. My skin feels happy, like its thanking me for cutting the bullshit.  My skin feels softer and the texture and coloring of my skin has evened out significantly. During this time of year my skin always breaks out, and I get tons of itchy texture. This year was particularly bad and I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it. From putting tons of product on, to nothing at all and it just wasn’t clearing up. In less than a week of using the toner my face chilled the heck out.. Finally!

I was so happy to find something that was so natural and so inexpensive that I just NEEDED to share it with you. Below I’ve outlined some benefits of ACV for your skin that I found… just incase my personal praise wasn’t enough for you 🙂 I used Braggs ACV, it needs to be the organic stuff!

Benefits of ACV for your skin:

  • Fights Acne
  • Helps your skin adjust to hot and cold weather
  • Helps even out skin coloration
  • Balances the PH levels of your skin
  • Removes Toxins
  • Fights Wrinkles

So go ahead, give it a try! I hope it works the same for you as it does for me.. We all have different skin, and some of us may be more sensitive than others, so I did a little test patch first so I wouldn’t have a reaction!

Have you used ACV for your skin? What about for your hair? Tell me about it, I`m looking to see what else this little miracle has in store for me.
