Brevena announced its skincare line which includes Macro B Complex, said to guard, protect, and heal cells. The company claims that Macro B Complex evolved from their work in helping to heal acute burns. The result is 5 skincare products aimed at tackling some of the most common skincare problems. Here is a rundown of the current Brevena Skincare line.
Daily Hydration Moisturizer
This is an anti-aging moisturizer which leaves skin feeling silky smooth. In addition to moisturizing, it also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves overall skin tone. One con is the lack of SPF which seems to be a glaring oversight.
Restore & Hydrate Overnight Cream
This overnight cream also includes Vitamins E and C, plus Hyaluronic Acid. It goes on easily and absorbs deeply into the skin. After a few uses of this, you will feel a difference in your skin. When used in tandem with the daily hydration moisturizer, the results can be dramatic.
Restorative Skin Balm
This product is meant to repair and sooth damaged or chronically irritated skin. Good for eczema and other skin issues. It works much the same way that the other products above do, by providing intense hydration to allow the skin a chance to heal. Awarded a “Seal of Acceptance” by the National Eczema Association.
Intensive Foot & Heel Repair
Designed to hydrate and moisturize. Designed to improve dry, chapped skin by moisturizing and hydrating.
Hand & Cuticle Therapy Balm
Aimed at those with dry, rough, and flaky skin, this balm softens and soothes compromised skin on the hands.
Customer reviews and our own in-house analysis shows an overall high satisfaction rate with all of the Brevena products, with two caveats. First, when reading the descriptions and evaluating the labels, there seems to be little marked difference among the various products, as they all contain the same primary ingredient of Macro B Complex. It would be easy for consumers to believe that these are essentially interchangeable products with different price tags. Second, the lack of an SPF in the daily moisturizer is somewhat disappointing.
Brevena is more expensive than many competing products, although its corner of the market on Macro B Complex could make the higher price worthwhile.
Overall, Brevena’s results are impressive, regardless of which product you choose. Macro B Complex seems to be the real deal.
