I tried Brad Pitt’s skincare line – the $33 set looked more like a free gift & the ‘gender neutral’ concept feels off
HOLLYWOOD-A-Lister Brad Pitt has launched his very own skincare line called le Domaine.
The collection of beauty products includes a cleanser, a serum and different types of moisturizers.
With full size gift sets starting at $545, I settled on the $33 sample set.
I gave Brad Pitt’s skincare line a shot to see if the gender-neutral brand lived up to my expectations.
DISCOVER LE DOMAINE
When I checked out le Domaine’s website, I realized that the price range was typical for a high-end luxury beauty line.
The price tags resemble prominent favorites such as la Mer or Augustinus Bader.
I settled on what I thought was the best value—the $33 Le Domaine Discovery set.
My first impression of the product was that it arrived on time and in appropriate packaging. None of my products arrived damaged.
However, as soon as I opened the packaging, I noticed how small it was. For $33, the discovery kit resembled a free sample kit from Sephora.
As someone with combination skin prone to acne at 32, I’m wary of anti-aging products as they tend to break me out.

The discovery set contains the serum, the liquid cream and the signature cream from le Domaine.
After washing my face and toning it with food grade rose water, I applied the serum to my skin and pressed it in with an amethyst face roller.
I immediately felt the smoothing effect of the product on my skin.
I followed in order of thickness, applying the liquid cream and finally the regular cream.
My face, neck and décolleté instantly felt smoother and my skin appreciated the hypoallergenic formula.
IS IT WORTH IT?
While the product seemed to work well, $33 is a bit steep for a tiny discovery kit.
Even similarly priced brands like la Mer occasionally offer free samples for such small sizes.
I also felt that the serum and liquid cream pumps were a bit flawed in getting the tiny amount of product out.
While I appreciated that the brand was hypoallergenic and the serum in particular was fragrance-free, nothing else about the product was touted as “gender neutral.”
Skincare is something that is tailored to individual tastes, so promoting it as “genderless” seems redundant.
I appreciated the eco-friendly and sturdy packaging of the cream but hope they can fix problems with the serum and liquid cream pump.
Overall, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a skin care brand from Brad Pitt himself.
Would it make me look ageless like Louis de Pointe du Lac? Or start a fight club with my pores?
With such a miniature discovery kit, I can’t confidently predict what the product will do for my skin to make me choose the hefty price tags of the line’s mainstays.
However, I noticed an immediate improvement in my skin’s softness and texture, which in itself was enough to convince me.
At $209 for the liquid cream and $242 for the signature cream, miniature samples with potentially difficult packaging may not be enough for skincare junkies to make the investment.
