I recently received a box of complimentary Dr. Brandt products to try out. I was really excited when this PR package came in as I had never tried Dr. Brandt products before, but had heard so many great things about them. Two of the stand out products I received were the Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask and the Magnetight Age-Defier Skin Recharging Magnet Mask.
Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask
The Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask is a mask for all skin types. You apply it to clean, dry skin before bedtime without rinsing it off and is best if used nightly. The box describes the product as:
A hydrating recovery sleeping mask powered by a Biotic Balancing Complex to balance skin’s naturally occurring flora. Soothing peptides along with a restorative blend of ceramides, fatty acids, and calming actives work in harmony to help soothe, nourish, and restore hydration to the skin.
- Deeply hydrates
- Moisturizes to reduce redness and signs of irritation
- Locks in moisture to prevent water loss
I found this mask to be extremely hydrating. A little product goes a long way. The day after application, your skin is left feeling soft and supple. I really love this mask. It is definitely something that needs to be worked into your winter skin care routine if you suffer from dry skin. If you don’t have super dry skin in the winter, I could definitely see how this mask could potentially be too hydrating for people with oily skin. I would describe mine as normal to dry and found this mask to be an amazing addition to my skin care routine. I should note that I don’t have redness or signs of irritation, so I can’t comment on these claims.
It’s hard to describe the fragrance. My best guess would be minty cucumber. I didn’t find the scent to be overpowering, but it is strong.
Magnetight Age-Defier Skin Recharging Magnet Mask
This could quite possibly be my favorite mask I have ever tried. I love it because of how unique the experience is. To apply, you use a little black spatula to spread a thin layer of product on your clean face, avoiding the eye area, and leave it on for approximately 5-10 minutes. I left it on for 10 minutes. To remove the mask, you wrap the provided magnet with a tissue and glide over face near the surface of your skin. You don’t even touch your skin, although there were times where I totally did. The magnet removes the mask so quickly – it’s insane! Once the product has been completely removed from your face, you massage in the remaining product. It feels like a serum has been applied to your skin. It made my skin feel SO GOOD!
The box says:
Powerful age-defying facial mask that dramatically transforms the look of your skin by harnessing the power of attraction. The magnetic properties of the iron based formula helps reduce signs of aging skin and lifts away the look of stressed skin. Look magnetically youthful and energized.
Use twice a week. Do not use water.
I happened to Instastory my first experience with the Magnetight Magnet Mask. My apologies for the low quality of this video. I didn’t intend for it to make it to YouTube, but hey – it gets all my points across! 🙂 Whatevs!
Have you tried either of these masks? If so, what did you think?! Drop me a comment below.
