“With the right products, the skin’s ability to heal itself is amazing.”- Dr. David Colbert
I have friends that swear by this man! They go to him for their skincare needs and look up to him as a nutritional skin guru of sorts. My friend, Linda Rodin, Founder and Creator of Olio Lusso, first debuted her collection there years ago and I remember thinking, “Why haven’t I tried his products before?”
David Colbert, MD, (seen above) founder of New York Dermataology Group in Manhattan, introduces his debut skincare line: Colbert MD. This line is said to be extraordinary, as it features 3 core daily products that are needed for youthful, healthy, radiant skin.
I know that he is one of the most sought-after dermatologists, also being an accomplished author. My closest friends go to him for fillers, doing so with a natural touch. They never look like anything was “done” — they only look as if they are well-rested.
These signature products are intended for daily use. The Stimulate The Serum supposedly replicates the results one would get from a chemical peel and/or laser toning; Nutrify & Protect Day protects against environmental damage and Heal & Soothe Night reduces inflammation — when used all together it is known as the Triad Facial.
The Intensify Facial Discs are to be used in conjunction with this Triad Facial regimen 2-3 times a week. To me, these discs are amazing as they act as an exfoliant that mimics a microdermabrasion effect.
Apply discs to a clean, damp face and move them in a gentle, circular motion for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds. You then rinse immediately with warm water and follow with Stimulate The Serum. Use discs morning or night; you must rinse thoroughly with water and avoid your eye area. Never use these on damaged or irritated skin. For my sensitive skin, they work!
My skin did not get irritated or burn in any way, as the ingredients are less harsh than the glycolic pads I’ve tried in the past where my skin literally rubbed off after using them. Products that are too strong are not good for such sensitive skin such as my own.
Stimulate The Serum felt cool when applied on my cleansed skin after using the Intensify Facial Discs. It is said to instantly boost collagen reproduction by working deep within the skin to restore its vibrancy and youthful radiance. The Serum is patented with QuSome (TM) Technology to facilitate the regeneration of healthy, supple skin. You can apply it once a day, morning or night — and I saw immediate evenness in my skin’s coloration upon application.
Balance Purifying Cleanser has anti-aging benefits and gently removes oil and surface impurities, leaving behind soft, smooth and clean skin that is ready for the Colbert MD regimen. There is ginko biloba, lasctic acid, allanton and bisabolol — key ingredients all working together to exfoliate, purify, condition and act as anti-irritants for the skin. This cleanser can be applied in a circular motion to a damp face. Rinse well with warm water and pat (don’t scrub!) dry.
Finally, the ever-so-popular face oil among celebrities and skincare lovers alike: the Ilumino Face Oil. It’s intended to instantly soothe and improve skin’s overall tone, texture and glow. I can tell you that retinol and vitamin C esters work at the topical level to soothe the skin, while the patented QuSome (TM) Technology delivers the oil deep into the dermis for optimal results.
This is known as the “oils of oils”, and can be massaged into cleansed, damp skin for best results. Key ingredients include: yangu oil, borage seed oil, marula oil, passion fruit oil and argan oil to improve skin’s elasticity, aid in cell repair and improve skin’s overall tone and texture.
People who know me well know I have been using Olio Lusso for years, yet I do agree that this oil is wonderfully lightweight, evens out my skintone and certainly generates an overall glow. With that being said, I can see why people flock to his offices and buy his brand. He also seems like a lovely and charming doctor who takes interest in all of his patients… or so I’ve heard! Wink, wink — I won’t reveal names. I promise! Also available at www.ColbertMD.com.
