Love That Red

Everything You Need to Know

LeWinn Me

Dr Lewinns is one of Australia’s most popular skin care brands and is bought by women not only from all over the country but from all over the globe. But is it really worth splashing the extra cash? As a pharmacy sold product it is pretty pricey (in comparison to the other shelved products including Nivea, L’Oreal etc) so are we wasting our hard earned cash on the same thing found in a liter bottle of sorbolene or is it actually worth it? I’ve tried and tested the majority of the range so I’m here to dish the truth and nothing but……

THE HISTORY

Dr. LeWinn was one of the world’s most distinguished plastic surgeons.

As the founder of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Philadelphia, the Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Hershey Medical Centre Pennsylvania and the Director of Plastic Surgery Institute, Palm Springs USA, Dr. LeWinn was respected and renowned in his profession.

His expert advice was sought by celebrity clients who wanted recommendations on how to improve their skin’s appearance. His response was to develop his own skincare range capable of delivering remarkable results against the visible signs of ageing.

The results were indeed remarkable, but in order to ensure his range of skincare products was the best on earth, he decided to continue testing his products in the harshest climate on earth, Australia. The success of this experiment is embodied in the fact that Dr. LeWinn’s has been named as the Top Performing Premium Skincare brand in Australia for the last unprecedented 11 years.”

  • Line Smoothing Complex

I do really like this formula and think that I definitely have a more hydrated, line free complexion the morning after using it however I probably wouldn’t recommend splashing over $100 on the stuff as it doesn’t last very long and I have used products that are just as good for less than half the price.
