HOLLYWOOD A-lister Brad Pitt has released his very own skincare line called ‘le Domaine.’
The collection of beauty products includes a cleanser, a serum, and several types of moisturizing cream.
With full-size gift sets starting at $545, I opted for 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.
DISCOVERING LE DOMAINE
Upon checking out the le Domaine website, I found that the price range was typical of a high-end luxury beauty line.
The price tags look similar to celebrity favorites like la Mer or Augustinus Bader.
I went with what I thought would be the most bang for my buck — the $33 le Domaine discovery set.
My initial impression of the product was that it arrived on time and in adequate packaging. None of my products arrived damaged.
However, as soon as I opened the package, I noted the very small size. For $33, the discovery set resembled a free sample set from Sephora.
As someone with combination skin that is acne-prone at 32 years old, I tread carefully with anti-aging products as they tend to break me out.

After washing my face and toning with food-grade rose water, I applied the serum to my skin and pressed it in with an amethyst facial roller.
The smoothing effect I felt from the product on my skin was immediate.
I followed up in order of thickness, applying the fluid cream and finally the regular cream.
My face, neck, and décolleté instantly felt smoother and my skin appreciated the hypoallergenic formulation.
IS IT WORTH IT?
Although the product seemed to work well, $33 for a minuscule discovery set is a bit steep.
Even brands in similar price points, like la Mer, occasionally offer free samples for sizes that are so small.
I also felt the pumps on the serum and fluid cream were a bit faulty to get the tiny amount of product out.
While I appreciated the brand being hypoallergenic and the serum in particular being fragrance-free, nothing else about the product touted “gender neutral.”
Skincare is something that is tailored to individual taste, so to advertise it as “genderless” seems redundant.
I did appreciate the eco-friendly and sturdy packaging on the cream, but hope they can fix issues with the pump on the serum and fluid cream.
In all, I wasn’t too sure what to expect from a skincare brand by 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 set, I can’t confidently predict what the product will do for my skin enough for me to shell out for the hefty price tags of the line’s mainstays.
However, I did notice an immediate improvement in the softness and texture of my skin, which had me sold on that alone.
For $209 for the fluid cream and $242 for the signature cream, miniature samples with potentially difficult packaging may not be convincing enough for skincare junkies to make the investment.
