I was lucky to have the opportunity to test the alluring BRAD Biophotonic Ultra Elastin Lift ($210). It comes in a dark medicine-style bottle made of Miron glass that only allows violet light to get through, which keeps the product active, and also adds a whiff of mystery to it. Wow, does it look cool sitting on the counter, and very potent, like it will really get the job done. And it does.
The serum itself is completely clear, almost watery. I found that using the dropper to make a little pool on the back of my hand is the best way to apply it. I used it all over my face and neck, even around my eyes, smoothing then patting it in. It goes on quickly, evenly and I immediately felt a tightening sensation. That said, there is no tackiness or residual product on the skin.
I did find in the first few weeks of using BRAD Biophotonic Ultra Elastin Lift that I developed a few whiteheads around the nose and mouth area. I backed off, only using the serum at night, and this has cleared up. And who knows, it could be my 61-year-old-skin was having some last gasp of hormone action. In any case, the serum seems to bring a subtle but real smoothing to the lines that radiate down my outer-eye area, and vertically across my cheeks when I smile. The serum is softening, and although I haven’t noticed radical changes in one month, I am going to keep going.
I love the ease of BRAD Biophotonic Ultra Elastin Lift; no smell, just a good clean feeling on the skin, and that subtle easing of lines. I had recently purchased the BRAD Biophotonic Essential Elixir Multi-Peptide, which I also found to be an excellent product, leaving my skin feeling plump and smooth. I think this Ultra Elastin Lift might be the next step up from that, at more than twice the price. I would consider switching…but I’m giving it another month. I don’t think this serum can take the place of my beloved Your Best Face Correct eye cream, but with this added tightening under that, I feel my skin is lookin’ pretty good for my age. And it’s all quick n’ easy, which is the best part.
