        horrible smell

        By crystal

        from Austin, Texas

        Comments about Glow by Dr. Brandt Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme:

        Honestly can't get over how horrible the smell is. The product seemed to do what it claims but I had to hold my breath every time I put it on. The price is steep and not sure if it was worth it.

        Disappointed as it smells too bad to wear

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Glow by Dr. Brandt Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme:

        Was really excited to try out Dr.B's Crystal Retinol Hydracreme, as I love his "Needles No More". Tried a sample of the hydracreme in the store on my hand and didn't notice anything unusual about it. After I took the product home and washed my face, I applied the product as instructed. Within seconds, the smell was so strong that it was just overwhelming! I ended up washing my face for a second time as I just couldn't handle that smell. Promptly returned it the next day for a refund. Dr. B's "Needles No More" smells like mint, and I will stick with it from now on.

        Amazing product

        By CC

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about Glow by Dr. Brandt Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme:

        Love this product. Get compliments on my skin all the time. It makes my skin glow and look younger and healthier. I where it under Philosophy Miracle in a Jar w/ SPF (SPF use recommended with this product) and then dust a light powder foundation over top to minimize some of the shine. Looks beautiful!
