Skincare Review: Dr. Brandt Needles No More

How I dealt with being a teenager is really apparent on my face. At 35, I have no smile lines only pretty prominent frown lines on my forehead and between my brows. I am an angsty and moody teenager listening to death cab for cutie and Coldplay and these fine lines are payback.

I haven’t really addressed these lines, just being really faithful on hydrating and moisturizing but then Dr. Brandt sent over their Needles No More Wrinkle Smoothing Cream. It is formulated with a tri-blend wrinkle smoother, peptides, and minerals that promise to provide instant and long-term smoothing effect while visibly improving the look of expression lines. This product is also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

This cream is light and a bit creamy but dries quickly. I like applying this at night before my moisturizer. A week passed and didn’t see any difference. After a few weeks, though, I saw improvements especially on the lines across my forehead. However, since this product doesn’t exactly freeze the skin, a frown and a few furrowing of the brows and bring back the deep lines so, in my opinion, this might work for those who are only beginning to see a few shallow lines. My emo teenage self still wins over this one.
