Two weeks ago, Brevena Skincare sent me a few of their products to try out.
I was sent products from the Brevena Basics Pack which includes:
- Daily Hydration Moisturizer
- Restore & Hydrate Overnight Cream
- Intensive Foot & Heel Repair (travel size)
For reference, I have combination oily skin but I’ve been experiencing seasonal facial dryness from the change in the weather and acne treatment products. To help reduce this dryness, I decided to test Brevena Basics to bring you a review.
Where to Buy
About Brevena Basics
I first found out about Brevena when they reached out to me. I got interested in the product because I was experiencing dry skin and the product promised to be hydrating. I’ve used many hydrating formulas but many of them feel too heavy on the skin. So I typically do not apply moisturizers on my face. With my new skincare routine, I needed a moisturizer.
Brevena contains macro B complex technology, which has beneficial hydrating effects. I definitely felt more confident using this product on my face when I learned that the company perfected the process of extracting and refining Oat Beta Glucan (Macro B Complex®) to a purity level unrivaled in the health care industry over 20 years ago.
This powerful Macro B Complex technology effortlessly repairs dry, aging and environmentally damaged skin.
From face to foot, BREVENA products are dermatologist tested and provide all skin types with essential hydration for soft, smooth, radiant and healthy skin. There is also a meaning of the name. “BREVENA” is a combination of “brennen,” the German word for “burn,” and “Avena,” the genus name for oats.

BREVENA’s Intensive Foot & Heel Repair with Macro B Complex® is highly concentrated and specially formulated to nourish and soften dry cracked heels and callused feet. Prone to rubbing and friction, the skin on the feet is thicker and can easily form painful calluses.
Intensive Foot & Heel Repair softens calluses and helps repair painful fissures and cracks by intensely moisturizing severely damaged skin. Macro B Complex provides an invisible and occlusive seal to deeply moisturize and protect your skin, reducing skin discomfort, irritation, and dryness.
I’ve been using this product for two weeks now and I’ve noticed visible changes in how hydrated my skin feels. I’ve also noticed some improvements in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For skin care products, the full effect of the product is seen after 30 days of consistent use. Can’t wait to see the difference after using Brevena for 4 weeks and after I’ve finished the full jar.
Both the daily and night time creams are thicker but they feel lightweight on the skin. There is also a faint herbal scent that is not is bothersome. Since this product is fragrance-free, I presume the scent comes from the ingredients.
I’ve also worn Brevena under makeup a few times and haven’t had any issues with it. I can’t really speak to Brevena’s effect on firmness/lift since my current signs of aging are some (mild) fine lines around my eyes and forehead.
Although I wished this product contained SPF, I really like Brevena hydrating moisturizer and can’t wait to see how it stacks up after more prolonged use.
