Dr. Brandt Directions/Working
Use Dr. Brandt 2% Retinol Complex Serum together with your evening skin care routine, layering the product to be as close as possible to your skin. Work up frequency of product use to allow your skin to adjust to this product’s retinol content, and always use sunscreen during the day as retinol is photosensitizing.

- The formula is infused with anti-inflammatory properties that can help counter the skin irritation that can be expected from retinol.
- Brandt retinol serum reviews are practically absent to provide any information on product advantages.
Dr. Brandt Disadvantages
- This product contains well known skin irritating that include fragrance ingredients and menthol.
- This product uses phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin, as preservative.
- Most of this product’s beneficial ingredients are present in the formula in very low quantities we doubt will result to significant improvements for your skin.

Dr. Brandt 2% Retinol Complex Serum will bring benefits to your skin, thanks to its retinol content which, regardless of concentration, redounds to benefits any how. However, this product seriously fails at going beyond providing retinol to give your skin a more holistic rejuvenating treatment.
