Quality over quantity seems to be a common trend in up-and-coming skincare lines. As a beauty writer, Iâ€™ve noticed fewer products in a line replaced by multipurpose products and/or products with remarkable potency. The line by Dr. Goldfaden has seven products in its line-up and I tried three of them: Hands to Heart hand treatment, Vital Boost moisturizer, and Needle Less antiaging serum. Goldfaden is the eponymous family owned line by the Florida dermatologist with over 40 yearsâ€™ experience in the industry.
Hands to Heart Anti-Aging Plus Brightening Hand Treatment ($38, 3 oz.) is a rich yet quick absorbing hand cream. It hydrates the hands while working to remove age spots and plumps with the skin with CoQ10 and retinol as active agents. Using it daily for two weeks left my hands feeling like cashmere gloves. Vital Boost Even Skin Tone Daily Moisturizer (468, 1.7 oz.) corrects uneven skin tone. It contains vitamin D, gooseberry, red tea and hyaluronic acid. After two weeks, my skin was brighter and more firm and supple to the touch without feeling greasy. It also acted as a primer for makeup application. Needle Less Line Smoothing Concentrate ($115, 1 oz.) is made of 100% hyaluronic acid, seaweed, red tea, and acetyl-hexapeptide 3 to relax the intensity and frequency of facial muscle contractions. I used two pumps of the clear serum twice a day for two weeks and I looked about 5-8 years younger. This product is a great alternative to injectables.
Goldfadden MD is an incredibly powerful line of products. Even with such potency, they are all gentle and nurturing to the skin with organic ingredients. This is the line for people seriously concerned about anti-aging who want an effective alternative to cosmetic surgery.
