|Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30||
Any dermatologist will emphasize the importance of using a broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors. After all, damaging UVA and UVB rays can really do a number of your skin. Before you know it, wrinkles, age spots, and crow’s feet are a major concern. On the bright side, you can really reduce the impact sunlight has on your skin, simply by applying a daily sunscreen. This can reduce signs of aging from appearing. One product that was specifically formulated for the face is Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30. This formula is touted as “high protection.” It is available through the official website, and sells for $35 per one-ounce container.
According to the official website, you can get an instant glow when you use Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30. This is a tinted formula that helps fend off damaging UV rays. Specifically, this product protects the dermis from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which in turn reduces the pigmentation of skin. In other words, you are less likely to get age spots, brown patches, hyper pigmentation, and sun damage. Dry-touch technology is used in this formula to minimize shine. Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 is suitable for all skin types, and is hypoallergenic.
This sunscreen can be used on the face, neck and ears, and should be reapplied every two hours. Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 contains Helioguard 365, which naturally helps filter out UVA rays. Sepicalm VG is added to prevent photo aging and minimize skin pigmentation. Detoxophane, which is a Swiss Garden Cress Sprout, is used in this product to protect the skin from pollution and environmental aggressors. As with any sunscreen, it is helpful to apply this product at least 30 minutes prior to heading outdoors.

The Bottom Line
While it is refreshing to see that Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 is free of fragrances, this product does contain five different kinds of parabens, which will deter some women from using it. One thing we noticed about this “anti-aging” product is that it is more of a preventative measure, than anything else. After all, no key ingredients are used in Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 to address existing signs of aging. On a final note, one ounce of this formula costs $35, whereas many other face sunscreens sell for less money, but give you a lot more product.
