The result of all this is a nongreasy, fragrance-free eye cream that suits all skin types (even sensitive) and helps combat dark circles, fine lines and upper eyelid drooping. Yes, you can and should use it on your eyelids.
The lightweight primer doesn’t feel like a heavy base but is both hydrating and mattifying at the same time. I apply a small amount all over clean skin, and it instantly gives a blurring effect — so much so, I barely need foundation and have been using less concealer, too. The formula not only smooths out my skin complexion to hide my hyperpigmentation, but it also reduces pore size and actively works to improve skin texture.
The gel is formulated to produce similar results as in-office cosmetic procedures, including tightening saggy skin, smoothing fine lines, reducing puffy bags, and brightening dark circles. After using a face moisturizer, I took a small amount and warmed it up between my fingers for five seconds, as advised by the brand, then gently dabbed it across each of my under-eye circles. The area appeared red at first, but after a minute, I felt it drying and noticed the circles had lightened, and the skin felt physically tighter and smooth to the touch once it was fully dry.
Are machines and tools intimidating for you? Then get this microdermabrasion treatment. It is a lightweight, age-defying exfoliator that buffs away all the dead skin cells. It has skin brightening and smoothing properties that helps the skin feel rejuvenated and nourished. In addition, the formula is infused with pharmaceutical-grade crystals that help to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer is another favorite of Lovello's, thanks to its smooth matte finish that helps minimize the appearance of large pores. The hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic formula is spiked with red clover flower extract, which can "heal inflamed skin," according to King, without clogging your pores. It's even infused with a derivative of salicylic acid (known as capryloyl salicylic acid) to gently sweep dead skin cells.
If you're looking for a good scrub, Dr. Brandt's is a solid choice. "That one is actually a combination of a physical and a chemical exfoliant," says Dr. Garshick. It helps even out your skin texture, minimizing bumps, and will give your skin a glow. Reviewers say their skin is genuinely so much softer after usage!
