The doctor is in the Birchbox house! Meet celebrity dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt, the man responsible Hollywood’s for most covetable complexions (Gwyneth Paltrow’s glowing visage, for one). We grilled the legendary doc on the one product he’d take to a desert island, the biggest skincare mistake people make, and much more in this month’s Innovator-in-Chief feature.
Want to know more? Join us today, October 16, at 7 p.m. ET for a Twitter chat with Dr. Brandt. He’ll be answering all your burning (well, we hope not literally) skincare questions. To participate, tweet your questions with #AskDrBrandt and follow @birchbox and @drfredricbrandt to keep up with the conversation.
Plus, six lucky participants will be selected to win one of Dr. Brandt’s most buzzed-about products. Don’t be shy! We want to hear from you.
Designed to mimic in-office treatments, dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant gently buffs away dead skin cells, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath.
Chris Salgardo, President of Kiehl’s
Have you tried Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution? The Birchbox community is raving. Some of our members have even written to us to say that the product has helped to fade dark spots and scars they thought would be with them forever. Given all the praise, we thought we should host a live Twitter chat with Kiehl’s president, Chris Salgardo. This will be your chance to ask any and all questions about Clearly Corrective and Kiehl’s. Plus, participating will enter you to win a bottle of the solution!

Last week, we teamed up with AHAVA to throw a two-day Twitter contest. We asked you for your most vexing skin and body questions and we got tons of great entries. Here are the two winning Tweeters and their questions - each will win a $300 prize pack and get their question answered by AHAVA skin expert Dawn Diorio.
@kzarr: @Birchbox #AHAVAReborn What @AHAVA_US product can you use to cure your cracked heels? I NEED to know!
To get feet sandal-ready and to prevent cracked heels and rough soles, start by using AHAVA’S Softening Butter Salt Scrub. Apply to dry feet and calves and perform a gentle exfoliation to stimulate cellular renewal and remove calluses. Exfoliate at least twice a week during the summer months. Apply Mineral Foot Cream morning and evening to clean, dry feet. This light cream is rich in Dead Sea minerals, natural plant derivatives, and tea tree oil. It renews rough skin, repairs splits and cracks, and prevents dryness.
@martiferg: @birchbox @ahava_us I am a busy mom of 2 and don’t always have that much time for myself. What are some quick and easy products?
Pick time-saving, skin-friendly products to use morning and evening to keep skin performing at its best. AHAVA’s All In One Toning Cleanser is three products in one: it removes eye and face makeup, dirt, and impurities, and also tones the skin. It can be used with or without water! Hydrate the skin with Essential Day Moisturizer — it provides long lasting hydration and protection against environmental damage. Protect the delicate skin around the eyes with our Gentle Eye Cream—it’s rich in Dead Sea minerals, selected botanical essences and skin-healthy vitamins to visibly reduce sign of fatigue and increase hydration.

We’re kicking off our AHAVA Twitter contest today! All you have to do to enter is follow @birchbox and @ahava_us and — all today and tomorrow — tweet us your most vexing body and skincare questions with the hashtag #AHAVAreborn. We’ll pick two winners who will get $300 worth of products and have their questions answered by AHAVA’s skincare expert.

Ever since we discovered AHAVA, we’ve had our skin on a steady diet of Dead Sea minerals. It’s paid off — our hands and feet made it through winter crack-free, and our complexions are noticeably clearer thanks to their purifying mud mask. And, with the brand’s recent relaunch, the products just keep getting better and better. Now it’s your turn to reap the benefits.
Next week, we’re teaming up with AHAVA to give you skincare advice and the chance to win awesome prizes. All day Wednesday and Thursday, hop on over to Twitter and tweet us your most vexing skincare and bodycare questions with the hashtag #AHAVAreborn. Everyone who participates using #AHAVAreborn will be entered. On Friday, we’ll select two winners to have their questions answered by AHAVA expert Dawn Diorio — and they’ll also each receive $300 worth of AHAVA products.
What, exactly, might be included in each of these $300 grand prizes? A bounty of AHAVA’s best sellers, that’s what, including their Rich Cleansing Cream, Dermud Intensive Hand Cream, Dermud Intensive Foot Cream, Softening Butter Salt Scrub, Sun Anti-Aging Moisturizing Spray, and more!
Stay tuned next week for an exclusive interview with AHAVA’s CEO about their relaunch, the magic of minerals, and more!
