Dr. Brandt skincare – the way to start a new you for a new year

dr brand logoAs the year ends and we start making our resolutions for 2016 the Beauty Info Zone bloggers talked about using only the best skin care for the year. We noticed (when looking at our driver’s licenses, not the mirror) that we are getting older. We don’t want anyone to look at us and realize it so we made a promise to each other to learn about new skincare and use what works best. Dr. Brandt skin care fits smack dab in that category and we’re so happy to have received some products for review. Dr. Brandt Skincare really doesn’t need an introduction since it’s long been used and trusted. He was a pioneer in his field and not only practiced as a dermatologist but developed his skincare line to repair the signs of skin damage, combat the signs of advancing age gracefully, and maintain the most youthful skin possible. We agree with that philosophy are look forward to introducing you to some newer products that you may not know about.

One of the newer skincare lines at Dr. Brandt is XYY otherwise known as Xtend Your Youth. This line is meant for age defense, anti-stress, and as an anti-oxidant. Just the group (XYY) calls to me.

Dr. Brandt Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water is a double duty product. It’s a cleanser as well as a makeup remover. It’s safe for all skin types and has been both dermatology tested and opthamology tested. What makes Dual Fusion Water unique among the micellar waters that you’ve read so much about, is that this is also a toner.

The Dual Fusion Water gently removes all makeup, even your eye makeup, without any stinging. All you need is some cotton squares (like the ones Shiseido or DHC sell) and this bottle of magic.

  • removes oil, impurities & make-up residue
  • gently & effectively removes even waterproof make-up
  • may help support skin’s natural defense system against free radicals & external aggressors
  • leaves skin purified & revitalized

    If you know me from reviews, you know I don’t like fragranced products and choose fragrance free when at all possible. I was thrilled to find that XXY Dual Fusion Water has no fragrance. I use it at different times of the day. In the morning if I have cleansed well the night before then I just squeeze some of the Dual Fusion Water on my cotton pad and refresh my face before adding any skincare. I’ve been using this every evening too in one of two ways – 1) to remove my makeup when I’m too tired to wash my face and 2) as a toner on the nights I do my proper cleansing

This micellar water does it all for me – it traps oil, removes impurities and makeup residues. It’s not sticky and it doesn’t interfere with any of the skincare I chose to use. My skin never feels stripped either. I learned that the PH range of this micellar water is between five and six to promote a healthy PH balance. This has been a great find for me and getting a lot of love.


You know how sometimes you look in the mirror and realize your skin just looks tired? Or perhaps you were out too late the night before, or had one too many cocktails, and your skin is totally telling on you. The Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask ($69) is the perfect antidote to sad looking skin.

The packaging is pretty cool – it looks like a big pill, but the bottom is flat so it stands up fine by itself. The facial mask is a lotion that you spread in a thin layer over cleansed skin. Whatever you do, don’t rub it in! That ruins the effect. Just lightly spread it on and watch in wonder while it bubbles up as the oxygen activates. It’s very cooling and soothing, and after about three minutes the bubbles start to dissipate.

That’s when you know it’s time to wash it off with warm water. After, apply your regular serum and moisturizer. You won’t believe how awesome your skin looks right away – hydrated and refreshed and just plain healthy. Just check out the clinical test results:

Research results:
In a clinical test conducted on 25 volunteers over 2 weeks:
Instant results after the first application:
– 96% reported that skin looks rested and fresh
– 92% reported that skin looks more radiant and luminous

Results after using twice daily for 2 weeks:
– 100% reported that product purifies asphyxiated and fatigued skin
– 100% reported that skin feels supple and smooth
– 96% reported that skin feels more hydrated and clarified

The Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask  is a winner all around. The packaging is super cool, the mask is fascinating to use, and the effect on skin is wonderful. It’s  a great way to start off the new year!!
