"The highest level of retinol you can get over the counter, sans the irritation. This serum, which is intended for nighttime use, plumps up fine lines and wrinkles before they can settle into your skin, intending to stay a while. And for a product that’s usually associated with dryness, Dr. Sobel’s actually offers the opposite: an improvement in overall skin hydration and suppleness. Remember retinol is a powerful active ingredient, so it needs to be slowly introduced into your routine."
"This Sephora-exclusive brand just launched last month and its range is already making (good) noise. The lightweight lotion does pack a heavy punch with the retinol percentage, so tread lightly if it’s your first time playing with vitamin A."
"It's hard to know where to start with the Sobel Skin vitamin C face serum, mostly because of how effective the formulation is. With a high concentration of vitamin C (35%) in three different forms, skin will look noticeably brighter and bouncier in just 4 weeks time. Dark spots fade nearly overnight and skin tone is over all more even, in a snap. Plus, the packaging is recyclable which just cannot be overlooked these days."
"This multitasking lotion fits right into my very minimalist morning skincare routine (I commute 2+ hours to work everyday...so anything more than one step just isn't happening for me). A few pumps leave just the right amount of moisture so I look glowy but not greasy, protects from nasty free radicals thanks to antioxidants, and shields my face from UV rays with mineral SPF 30. I rub a nickel-size amount into dry skin, and that's it."
"From celebrity dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel’s new skincare line (his clients include Orlando Bloom, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer), this supercharged nighttime treatment contains a 15% concentration of niacinamide to minimizes the look of pores, increase elasticity and lock in moisture."
"These days, I've been trying to use Niacinamide, too," says Spruch-Feiner. Dermatologist Dr. Sobel's new skincare line is known for it's high concentrations of active ingredients delivered in products that meet the criteria for Sephora's clean seal of approval.
Niacinamide, AKA vitamin B3 or niacin, is fabulous for balancing, skin barrier function, moisture retention, and making pores look smaller. Due to its fortifying effect on barrier function, it is great for all skin types — from sensitive, to redness-prone, to normal, to acne-prone."
