Skin Care Review: Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel (Original Strength)

by S Spencer


Fast results, anti-aging, evens complexion, gentle


This daily "face peel" is touted as an anti-aging treatment to help diminish lines/wrinkles, unevenness and other complexion issues. It comes in the form of two towelettes that are pre-soaked in a solution containing a mixture of hydroxy acids and retinol (as such, it's not a traditional mask or peel.). I was hesitant to try these as I have very sensitive skin but went ahead and bought a pack of 14 to try out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had no adverse reaction or even redness after applying them. The second day of use (I used them 14 days in a row) I noticed that the lines on my forehead were diminished and that my skin seemed to retain moisture better, without getting as oily (as it tends to do in the middle of the day). By the fourth day my skin seemed more even and brighter. I did notice, however, that I broke out a bit after starting this treatment but this did not continue after the first few days. I also note that since running out of these peels (I haven't re-stocked yet, although I NEED to!) my skin is returning to it's dull old self. As such, I'm yet to know of the long-term benefits, and, given their price, if this treatment does require ongoing, almost-daily use, I would only recommend these to the very wealthy!

Love the product & recommend for all skin types
