Does Barbara Sturm own the fountain of youth?
Let's pretend you have never heard of Dr. Barbara Sturm before. Dr. Barbara Sturm has taken research to the level of creating a jar of skin cream consisting of your blood proteins, taken from your blood cells to activate rejuvenation and anti-inflammatory processes. There is no question she is the contemporary, ultimate guru, exclusive owner of some sort of well-hidden knowledge, producing the magical potion.
Dr. Barbara Sturm studied medicine and sports in Bochum, Essen, and Düsseldorf. Back then, she found herself interested enough in the field of orthopedics, where she pursued her doctorate on. What she did, was to translate the scientific discoveries in molecular orthopedics to dermatology and skin field, as it is widely accepted that cartilage and skin cells have a lot in common, including the way they function. She collaborated with scientists from Pittsburgh and Harvard to research, and eventually develop a cosmetic concept for skincare based on a medical approach. Dr. Barbara Sturm is now a globally renowned specialist in aesthetic medicine and specializes in rejuvenating, non-surgical, skin treatments, wrinkle treatments, and anti-aging. She is also the woman-pioneer behind the radical treatment "vampire facial" and "blood creams" that are celebrity-approved and one of the most famous talk of social media and beauty experts worldwide.
Science is the common starting point for the people working for Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics, as well as the belief that beauty comes from within, meaning we are capable of healing ourselves. The line's cutting-edge formulas and approach show that Dr. Barbara Sturm and her team maintain multiple practices in both the US and Europe. Expertise and knowledge, paired with their commitment to healthy skincare, are what Dr. Barbara Sturm and her team are all about. They stay faithful in creating uncomplicated yet highly effective products, based on the philosophy of eliminating all irritating, toxic, or otherwise damaging ingredients, protecting and purifying the skin to the highest possible level. In other words, the aesthetic medicine at its best, made in Germany.
Some of Dr. Barbara Sturm's strict borderlines can be found below.
"A doctor brand without underlying science is just marketing in a jar. I was only interested in science and inventing products that worked for my family, my friends, my patients, and myself. I believed in pure and clean ingredients of the highest quality only, whose ingredients had been widely clinically studied," says Dr. Barbara Sturm herself.
Natural, non-toxic ingredients
"I don't like perfume in my products, and fragrance is practically ubiquitous in skincare. I also don't like ingredients from outer space or the bottom of the ocean that are merely marketing gimmicks. The skin is our biggest organ and needs protection and care. Synthetic fragrances, parabens, and mineral oils are completely out of the game."
"The products are all unisex, and we have decided that we will take the Women out of the Face Cream Women and Face Cream Women Rich as men can use them as well as women. The primary difference between male and female skin is that men have thicker skin, and their skin faces both certain challenges and certain advantages as a consequence of shaving. The Face Cream Men, therefore, contains more disinfecting and calming ingredients après shave. Other than the face cream, all the products in my lines are unisex."
Glow Drops. The longed-for miracle.
What is it?
Apart from the shiny name, you may find yourself wondering. Is it a serum? Is it a primer? Eye drops? Actually, no. Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops are much more. It is a hybrid product, full of potent anti-aging compounds, providing deep hydration, fundamental nourishment, and pore refinement. Furthermore, numerous active ingredients regenerate, restore and heal damaged parts of the skin, giving the desirable natural shimmer at the same time—briefly, a multitasker.
Purslane is the star ingredient of Molecular Cosmetics, the so-called "fountain of youth," and not without reason. Purslane is an ancient, green-leaved herb that grows in mild climates. It has been used both in medicine and as a superfood all around the world for more than 2000 years. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, used it himself as a remedy against wounds and inflammation. When Purslane was put into clinical trials recently, the findings were remarkable. Dramatic anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties were revealed as well as the capacity to mediate and up-regulate the immortality enzyme telomerase, which stops the length of the telomere cap at the end of our DNA from shortening. In short, preventing the cells from dying and thus delaying the aging procedure. Vitamin C, copper, and Omega 3 Fatty Acids are charted into its chemistry as well. Last but not least, no other skincare line uses it.
The scientific name is Polygonum Bistorta Root but is widely known as "snakeweed," due to the twisted roots of the specific plant. Proved to have strong astringent properties alongside with anti-aging effect, it is the most suitable ingredient to naturally optimize your skin tone.
Rosa Canina fruit extract comes from a rose species native to some parts of Asia and Africa. Apart from containing a whole lot of vitamin C, it is wisely put into the composition to gift your complexion with a more even appearance since it refines pores and rushes.

Low and high weighted Hyaluronic Acid molecules are blended properly according to Dr. Sturm's innovative formulation, binding moisture, and replenishing internal molecular levels.

Deliberately leaving the best at the end, this is the luminous part, where the glam is hidden! After all the top quality remedies above, the shimmering optical pigments are going to, instantly but naturally, optimize your appearance giving you the coveted red-carpet-ready face as promised!
How to use it
As we previously said, it is a multitasker product we are talking about. Hence it offers certain alternatives.
If it is not a make-up day, no special protection needed, when at home for example, and you need your skin to be light just spread a few drops all over the face, after placing them on your hand, including eye area and neck, while gently patting it in. Not too heavy, not too light, quick-drying. You will instantly feel the joy. This is the basic procedure. The active ingredients will do the rest.
For a lit-from-within glow, you may apply it after your daily moisturizing regime. Try it with Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Rich or Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Light, depending on the type of your complexion, for outstanding results.
For the glimpse, the perfection touch at the top of a well-played make-up. The ever-slight highlight effect thanks to the mineral particles won't let you down.
You can mix the Glow Drops with your regular BB cream, or you can blend it with your moisturizer. You may experiment, enhancing your preferred skincare product, including foundation, without worrying for failure because Glow Drop's texture is blend-friendly.
When on special occasions, you might as well use it blended, after the great Dr. Barbara Sturm Lifting Serum. If you struggle with irritations, don't forget to put a few drops in your hydrating cream after Dr. Barbara Sturm Calming Serum.
Glow Drops primarily fights against dullness and uneven texture of the complexion. It eliminates the pores and the rushes when at the same time, soothes fine lines and wrinkles. It is beneficial for normal, dry, and oily skin as well.
Glow Drops is overall a fantastic multiple-function product as well as the rest of Dr. Barbara Sturm's skincare line. We, at the Project Garments, strongly recommend you to try it and see by yourself the results of true science formulas translated into pure beauty. But we also advise you never to neglect a dedicated daily skincare regimen, however nice a skincare product is. The ritual of caring is irreplaceable for the ones who want their faces to burst out of health!
