I’ve had a lot of spare time during quarantine, and I spent some of that doing a deep clean-out of my beauty products. Once I took the time to really learn about and understand some of the harmful ingredients that are hanging out in my makeup drawer, it became a lot easier to make the swap. My can’t-live-without Goldfaden MD products are the result of one of those switches!
A lot of times, people think that plant-based ingredients can’t be as effective as the traditional stuff but that’s just not true. Goldfaden MD products are dermatologist-tested with clinical-level results. Which is great for me, because sometimes at this age, you need a little extra help to feel your best. They’re free of parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, alcohol, synthetic fragrance, or any other icky things. Their Detoxifying Facial Cleanser is a great entry point for everyone, because it works for all skin types. Doctor’s Scrub is a gentle daily exfoliant that sloughs off dead cells while hydrating the fresh ones, thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid that keeps skin looking plump.
Sometimes you need special products for special areas. Your hands require different care than the rest of your face! The Brightening Hand Treatment is one of my secret weapons, because the moisturizing formula keeps my hands soft while targeting dark spots and fine lines. Their Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate gives my undereyes a little extra oomph when I haven’t gotten as much sleep as I should’ve, or I’ve had one too many margaritas. Speaking of needing a refresh, their Daily Nutrient Facial Mist is like taking a vitamin for your skin. I love using it when I get off the plane or whenever my skin is looking a little dull.
