RIP Dr Brandt

Rest in peace to one of the most inspiring doctors ever in the skin care industry. We truly lost a legend and it breaks me heart to have to type this.  Before this tragedy happened, I was writing a post about Dr Brandt's No More Needles, which is in my own words, "Botox in a bottle". If you don't want to try botox, or maybe you're afraid of needles this is the closest to getting that frozen appearance. And the best part is? If you don't like it it's not an injection so you don't have to ever use it again. But I doubt it.
Dr Brandt released the No More Needles to essentially "mimic" anti wrinkle treatments that smooth out and even fine lines and wrinkles.  When first applied, it does feel like you're "freezing" your wrinkles because of the tightening feeling and peppermint smell. At first I was hoping this wasn't a jinx like those lip plumpers that FEEL as if they are working, but really are doing nothing at all.  The essential purpose of this product is clearly this; "to  smooth out fine lines and wrinkles." It targets on the main wrinkle areas that botox also focuses on.  (Forehead, between the eyebrows and crow's feet)
So does it work?  The verdict is in.  Taken from the Sephora website:
Research results:In a 4-week in-vivo clinical test conducted on 25 volunteers; results after use of product AM and PM for 60 minutes:
After 60 minutes:
- 96% reported skin looked smoother
- 100% reported skin around the eyes has a more lifted appearance

After 4 weeks:
- 100% reported wrinkles on the crow’s feet area looked smoother
- 100% reported lines on forehead look smoother
- 100% reported the appearance of lines and wrinkles has diminished
- 100% reported to like this product
Ok I don't know if these are exactly what I experienced.  BUT I will say out of all the wrinkle creams and eye creams I have used, this MIGHT be the best one. I honestly have ever never seen such fast acting results in such a small bottle. But don't get too excited, it's not  a miracle. I used this twice a day for 2 weeks and slowly but surely I did notice my crow's feet, (which is  my main trouble site) slowly start to smooth out. Honestly, no cream ever will work as well as botox.  No cream will ever work as well as an actual injection with a needle into the face. But as far as skin creams and moisturizers go, this Is the best.  But hold up, not everything is peaches and cream.  The downside is one of the most expensive wrinkle creams  I've seen at Sephora.
Take into consideration the size of the bottle I tried out, (.85 ounces 2.5 grams) If you're up  on your weight, it's probably the smallest bottle I've ever used. One bottle will last about 3 times.  Wow The .85 bottle sells for around $30.  Right now at Sephora a  .5 ounce bottle sells for $89.00 Probably a little less then a month's supply if used daily.  Technically for ME, this would last me about 2 weeks using it daily.
But when compared to the expensive $10 a unit  botox, it might be worth it. So if you're looking for something that will kick the wrinkles fast and don't want to go for the needle I highly recommend Dr Brandt's "Needles No More" This is available at Sephora, and Dr Brandt's website.
And a big RIP To Dr Dennis Brandt. We will never know what other amazing products were to come... he was taken way too soon.
(Wish it was a TAD bit cheaper)
