"Tune in and tone up your skin! Dr. Howard Sobel discusses his clean, clinical, transforming formulas including the QVC Customer Choice Beauty Award nominees Retinol Complex Night Treatment and Glycolic Peel Concentrate with host Shawn Killinger."
"Recommended for all skin types, this gentle yet potent cleanser from Sobel Skin works hard at removing makeup, dirt, and oils, while exfoliating skin for improved texture."
"This 15 percent niacinamide serum has a lightweight gel-like texture that instantly soaks into skin (no greasy or sticky residue) and leaves your face looking firm, smooth, and practically poreless."
"Howard Sobel, MD is the unofficial dermatologist of the Real Housewives of New York, helping Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Dorina Medley and Sonja Morgan keep their skin glowing."
The best in clean beauty:
"Consumers continue to show interest in understanding what ingredients will get them the results they want. While searchers for typical anti-aging claims have decreased, searchers for ingredients that fulfill those claims are on the rise." In fact, searchers for common skin care ingredients—such as hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, retinol, and so on—are up 44%, they note."
"The drier air can cause skin irritation, itchy skin or dryness, which can make skin appear dull or dehydrated,” Dr. Gigler says. “It can also cause less oil production in skin.... The Sobel Skin Rx Bio Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cream has a delivery system that helps repair the skin barrier, increase penetration and keep pollutants out. "
"This one is a supercharged at-home peel with 30% glycolic acid. Other ingredients include larch tree extract to increase and retain moisture plus chamomile and cucumber extracts to soothe irritation."
"Additionally, you can prevent sebaceous filaments through a consistent skin-care routine—that means every day and night, no matter how tired you feel. “To minimize sebaceous filaments (a much safer alternative to peel off masks, pore strips, and at-home extractions), use a good BHA or salicylic-acid product, practice oil cleansing, and use ingredients like niacinamide, zinc, sulfur, and pimple patches," says Joi Lin Tynes, NYS licensed aesthetician and wax specialist at Skin Delush Skin Studio."
"A powerful derm-formulated brand, this silky gel formula sinks into skin and gets to work. In addition to the namesake ingredient, it has allantoin and sigesbeckia orientalis (commonly called St. Paul's wort). The former is a popular K-beauty staple that softens skin and even acts as a gentle exfoliator. The latter helps firm and tighten."
"Developed by a dermatologist, you can rest assured that this high-potency vitamin C serum will actually brighten, firm and even out your skin tone like it claims. “I’ve been using this product for three weeks and I can see an improvement in the radiance of my skin. My discoloration is slowly starting to fade,” confirms one reviewer."
"After my treatment, I used a simple cocktail of Sobel Skin RX's Bio Hyaluronic Moisture Cream ($75) for nighttime, and a niacinamide serum during the day."
"Another solid retinol option is this high-percentage treatment from Sobel's line: "It reduces the amount of oil on the skin without getting rid of it completely," he says."
"If your skin can handle a more intense glycolic acid treatment, Sobel recommends this 30% at-home peel from his line. "It's able to the reverse the uneven appearance that acne scars leave behind," he says of the supercharged formula."
"Another niacinamide-rich option is this gel-like serum from Sobel's own line. It contains a whopping 15% of the ingredient to visually refine the overall tone and texture of skin."
"This cleanser might be the most concentrated one on the list with 27% glycolic acid. Even though it's powerful, it won't strip the skin dry. It also contains soothing allantoin, aloe, and chamomile extracts."
"This liquid chemical peel is packed with 30 percent glycolic acid to give you the soft, spot-free, baby-angel skin of your dreams. It's easy to use: Just saturate a cotton pad with the peel, wipe it on clean, dry skin, let it sit for two minutes, then rinse with cool water. Be warned though, this stuff is potent. Use it once a week if you have dry skin, twice a week if your skin is oily, and never (sry!) if your skin is sensitive or if you have rosacea."
"If you’re looking to do a peel at home, start off slow (once a week max) and then increase your frequency over time. Try not to layer acids, retinol, or benzoyl peroxide when using an at-home peel, otherwise you run the risk of irritation."
"Congested pores are the unfair side-effect of your “summer glow”. Try using this lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acid-powered mask once a week to help clear your pores and prevent unwanted skin texture."
"My Sobel Skin Rx 15% Niacinamide Gel Serum is powered by maximum-strength 15% niacinamide to minimize the look of pores, revitalize, firm, and smooth the skin," Sobel says. "The lightweight gel formula deeply penetrates the skin to strengthen and protect its epidermal-dermal barrier from environmental stressors, while visibly improving overall texture and tone. It also hydrates and locks in moisture for skin that is twice as supple, making it the anti-aging multi-tasker you've been missing, and a great product for minimizing rosacea"
"My Sobel Skin Rx 35% Vitamin C Serum has been clinically proven to increase skin brightness," Sobel says. "It works wonders on all types of skin concerns, from hyperpigmentation/dark spots and dullness to elasticity, and it protects skin from further damage by neutralizing aging free radicals. Over time, it helps stimulate collagen production and enhances clarity, radiance, and smoothness for skin that looks and acts like a younger version of itself."
"For the unacquainted, retinol not only helps with ageing, but also does wonders to eliminate acne by clearing out dead skin cells and unclogging pores. A quality retinol product, such as the Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment, which features the highest level of OTC Retinol concentration that deeply penetrates the skin without irritating or drying the skin out, would help cure acne while fading the stubborn acne scars, pigmentation that linger after breakouts. The treatment also contains a patent-pending delivery system Scientific Delivery SD-100, that mimics healthy, young skin structure, and ensures better absorption of active ingredients. ."

“Masks can cause breakouts due to a combination of friction of the mask and sweating and heat from wearing one for prolonged periods,” he says. “Our pores can also get clogged from wearing a mask because the dead skin cells are unable to shed and block our pores. Dr. Sobel likes Retinol for its ability to increase cell turnover and clear clogged pores. It’s just about finding the best formula that works for your skin, and using it an appropriate amount so as to not cause undue skin damage — try three nights a week and go from there.”
This Sobel Skin Rx 30% Glycolic Acid Peel ($46) can bring the results of an in-office peel right to your bathroom instead. The peel features a high level of glycolic acid to exfoliate and help shrink pores, and there's calming calendula, too.

" WOW. It’s so good. If you have very dry skin and need a really rich moisturizer, it’s excellent. I love that it also lifts and visibly firms the skin. It’s a new favorite. I’m going to write a longer post just about this cream, but wanted to share it here because of the sale. I really love this brand: their 30% glycolic acid peel is UNREAL (you will have no lines the next day – it’s temporary but amazing) and their retinol is my current favorite.
"It's hard to know where to start with the Sobel Skin vitamin C face serum, mostly because of how effective the formulation is.

Dark spots fade practically overnight and skin tone is overall more even, in a snap. Plus, the packaging is recyclable which cannot be overlooked these days. "

"Also known as Rhodophyta seaweed, red algae extract is rich in antioxidants, like beta-carotene, that can contribute to skin brightness, elasticity, and moisture retention. Dr. Sobel recommends his red-algae-infused Sobel Skin Rx 35% Vitamin C Face Serum, which treats dullness, wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines, and other skin issues."
"Fair warning, this option, another favorite of Xue’s, is best reserved for glycolic acid veterans who really want to up the ante. True to its name, it touts a whopping 27% concentration of glycolic acid for some mega-exfoliating, brightening, and skin-tone evening effects.

However, my goal for 2021 is to get into the habit of applying it every morning with the rest of my skin care products. To get a head start on my New Year's goal, I've been consistently using Sobel Skin Rx's 100% Mineral Based Broad Spectrum SPF 50 over the past few weeks, and I'm already loving the lightweight formula."
