Too small to decide . . .
Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel I received these as a sample after making a purchase at Sephora on Black Friday. However, there was only 3 treatments in the sample and it’s just not enough to tell if it really did anything. I use the treatments every other day for 6 days as my skin tend to be sensitive and I had never used a chemical peel before. By the third use, I noticed a lot of tingling and even a small burning sensation even when following the directions exactly. My final verdict is still out though, because even though this product can be bought in as small as a 5 pack, I’m just not sure if that is enough time to see results or if it is worth investing in the product.
the secret to flawless base makeup
There’s a lot of brands nowadays that are emphasizing the importance of caring for your skin first instead of trying to simply cover flaws with makeup. Of course makeup is a lot more than that; it’s a creative outlet for many, but I appreciate the efforts to highlight skin health nonetheless. All that to say that makeup and skincare are inextricably related in a lot of ways, including what I want to talk about in this post: using chemical exfoliants to ensure a smooth base for makeup. While this isn’t something I was always aware of, the experts know: in fact, Dr. Dennis Gross actually recommends using his cult favorite Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel in the mornings before makeup because it ensures a smooth, even surface, making makeup apply better. Many people think acids should be used only at night, but that is absolutely NOT true—as long as you wear adequate sun protection, there is no problem with using them in the morning. It’s important to use exfoliants to keep your skin clear of dead skin cells, which can cause makeup to appear uneven or to not stay well throughout the day. It’s also important to stay consistent with them to see lasting results, though those with more sensitive skin may not be able to use them every day. Listen to your skin and find the frequency that’s right for you. So here are just a few chemical exfoliants, though there are nearly endless options out there! The Dr. Dennis Gross pads are the best exfoliant I’ve ever tried—they’re amazing at lightening dark spots and smoothing texture, and I notice a definite difference in my makeup when I use them in the mornings. Sadly, they are very pricey, which is why I don’t use them every day and I always keep other options on hand. I also love the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator as a gentle everyday exfoliant. The salicylic acid has been amazing at helping reduce my acne and texture, and although the oilier texture put me off at first, now it feels moisturizing (maybe due to the green tea extract?), which I really appreciate given that it’s an exfoliant. This is a much more affordable option, at $29.50 for 4oz. I’ve used both the tarte - Knockout Tingling Treatment Tonerand the pixi - Glow Tonicin the past, though I haven’t had a chance to crack open these particular bottles. The glow tonic uses glycolic acid as its main exfoliant, while the knockout toner has a hefty blend of acids and is *very* strong—like, I use acids frequently and even I couldn’t use this every day. Last, I haven’t tried the REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toneryet, but I’m interested to see how the lactic acid works for me since I haven’t used many lactic acid products. Does anyone else notice a difference in their makeup when they forget to exfoliate? #CheriePartner

Dr.Dennis Gross alpha beta universal pads
This product is ❤️! Omg this product is amazing! I’ve only used this twice so far but after the first time I used this, my skin was so smooth! So much smoother than it’s ever been!😊 I bought a box of 5 applications but they do come in a box of 30 and 60!
If you are dealing with acne scarring, maybe this post will help! Acne scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it. During the healing process, the body produces collagen—a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, you will see a scar. Who is at risk for acne scarring? When a person ￼￼￼Has inflammatory (swollen, reddish, and painful) acne. These often include acne cysts and nodules. This type of acne tends to penetrate deep into the skin, which damages the skin. ￼￼￼Delays or does not treat inflammatory acne The longer a person has inflammatory acne, the greater the risk of scarring. ￼￼￼Picks, squeezes, or pops acne This increases inflammation, which increases the risk of scarring. ￼￼￼Has a blood relative who developed acne scars Genes play a large role. Products that are recommended by dermatologists: ￼￼￼SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum ￼￼￼SHANI DARDEN SKIN CARE - Retinol Reform ￼￼￼Murad - Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment ￼￼￼OLE HENRIKSEN - Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner ￼￼￼Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications If you have tried over the counter products and still aren’t seeing any results, your best bet is to see a good dermatologist. They use the following treatments: ￼￼￼Laser skin resurfacing ￼￼￼Chemical peeling ￼￼￼Dermabrasion ￼￼￼Microdermabrasion (differs from kits bought for at-home use) Resurfacing works well for treating acne scars that are nearly flat (not too deep). Even dermabrasion, which removes the top layers of skin and some of the middle layers, cannot effectively treat deep acne scars. For deeper scarring, they sometimes use fillers. A dermatologist may fill acne scars with collagen, the patient’s own fat, or another substance. Many fillers give temporary results, which last between 6 and 18 months. Some fillers are permanent. Collagen -induction therapy, skin tightening, electrodesication, and even scar surgery are also used. The takeaway is don’t think that you don’t have options! Definitely give the products I listed a good try. It can take months and months to really start seeing results so you definitely need to be patient. If those do not work for you, your dermatologist has a ton of options ❤️ Remember that no matter your skin, you are beautiful!!!

Compring skincare ft. Acne & oily skin cleanser
I recently emptied my Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel and started using my BIODERMA - Sebium Foaming Gel Pump . They are both gel cleansers and both foam up slightly- nothing crazy- and are both second cleanses. Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel contains both AHA’s and BHA’s while BIODERMA - Sebium Foaming Gel Pump contains BHA’s and has some oil controlling properties and mattifies. While both are good acne cleansers, I found the Alpha Beta did a better job at unclogging my pores, thus making them appear smaller, which is probably more due to the AHA’s (if you’ve seen my unfiltered skin lately, the pores are pretty gynormous). I actually fo prefer an AHA product over a BHA product because of my pore issue, so it makes sense I liked Alpha Beta more. I do like the oil controlling effect in the Sebium cleanser, but I if I were to choose between an anti-oil product and an anti-pore product- I’d go for the anti-pore product, personally, for my skin concerns. @drdennisgross Alpha Beta retails at 50$ CAD for 225ml while @biodermacanada Sebium goes for 24.90$ CAD for 500ml- a HUGE difference so really it depends on your skin concerns. I’m also seeing many exfoliating cleansers lately too, so there may actually be a good dupe for Alpha Beta that I havnt discovered yet, and should maybe look for, because 50$ for a cleanser is really a lot and I always said I wouldnt pay that much again. The upside is it lasted me a really long time (used one pump per night) and it worked really well for me so 🤷♀️ Conclusion is I’ll try to find a cheaper option for Alpha Beta, but if I dont, I’d buy it again (on sale 😅). Now, acids in cleansers- necessary or pointless? Depends on your skin concerns. If your biggest concern is to clear up breakouts fast, an exfoliating cleanser isnt going to clear that up right away, and your probably better off with an exfoliating toner, serum or moisturizer. However, if your concerns are less urgent- like small acne bumps, pores, acne-scarring, AHAs and BHAs will certainly help with that over time. I feel like repeated daily helped me in the long run, but not best for quick results. #cheriepartner

New favorite Chemical exfoliant!! It works 😍❤️
My new favorite Chemical exfoliant!! ❤️✨ @drdennisgross Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining serum Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum This serum is amazing! I have been using this for long enough to make a firm decision and I think I love how it performs on skin! As the name suggests it's a chemical exfoliant with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid). AHAs are water soluble and BHAs are Oil soluble, that is the main reason they do different tasks on skin. AHAs have several acids under the term These all AHAs are derived from many different plant or fruit extracts but BHA is solely Salicylic acid. It's derived from Willow Bark extract. 🌿Highlights of this product: 🏵️ This serum particularly is formulated to target Pores and blackheads! 🏵️ However, it also helps with skin texture and hyperpigmentation. 🏵️ Formulated with Ingredients: - Agarikon Mushroom Extract: Helps reduce shine without drying skin and firms skin making pores appear smaller and tighter. - Adipic Acid: Smooths the look of skin by filling in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. - Glycolic acid - Lactic acid - Salicylic Acid + Farnesol: Fights pore blockage. 🌿 My experience: 🏵️ Reduced the look of large pores dramatically. 🏵️ Takes about 6 weeks to start seeing any visible difference 🏵️ Smoothened out skin texture and look of fine lines. 🏵️ Slightly evened out skin tone 🏵️ Feels lightweight on skin and absorbs quicker 🏵️ Works amazing with Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin and Azelaic acid 🏵️ Slightly brightens skin. 🏵️ I used it every other day to prevent irritation. Overall I found this a great AHA BHA serum! 😍 The price of this is a little steep 65$ for 1 fl.oz but all Dennis Gross products are expensive and this serum is the same quality as their Alpha Beta Peels! Would you like to try this? 🏵️🌿
Favorites in AHAs for Fall ready glow ✨
I am huge a fan of Alpha hydroxy acids. If you know me I have been reaching for AHAs since the start of my skincare journey. I believe they have helped me a lot with my bumpy texture, closed comedones and hyperpigmentation. AHAs are amazing in skincare as they do a lot of things. If there's one thing I would choose from all the skincare ingredients is AHAs. For people who need a little more introduction to AHAs. They're A- hydroxy acids - a class of chemical compounds that can be either naturally occurring or synthetic. Many are derived from organic sugars, with glycolic acid (from sugar cane) and lactic acid (from milk) the best-known and best-researched of the bunch. In over-the-counter products, AHAs offer chemical exfoliation as an alternative to manual exfoliation, working primarily by dissolving the bonds between skin cells to allow the removal of dead cells and a subsequently smoother skin surface. AHAs benefit skin in many ways and they target specific skin concerns while chemically exfoliating skin. The major benefits are : ✨ Exfoliate skin ✨ Help getting rid of Acne scars/dark spots/Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation/melasma ✨ Reduce irregular/bumpy texture ✨ Smoothens skin surface (resurface) ✨ Reduce the look of pores ✨ Brighten and tighten skin ✨ Can be pretty gentle to potent depending on the type of AHA it is There are many Acids that fall under AHA category. Like : ✨ Glycolic acid - The most potent, smaller molecular size, pentrate deeper into skin, can be harsh for sensitive skin types. ✨ Lactic acid - Less potent than Glycolic acid, a little larger molecular size, doesn't irritate skin as it doesn't penetrate deeper. Better for sensitive skin. These two are mainly used in skincare formulations but there are more acids which can be beneficial based on personal issues. The full list of AHAs: ✨ Glycolic acid ✨ Lactic acid ✨ Malic acid ✨ Citric acid ✨ Tartaric acid ✨ Mandelic acid These are some of my favorite AHA products. I picked these as they're my staples, I like some other products too that I'll include in some other post. 1. @theordinary Glycolic acid 7% toning solution The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 2. @sundayriley Good genes All-in-one Lactic acid treatment SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment 3. @drdennisgross Alpha Beta Pore perfecting and refining serum Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum 4. @glowrecipe Watermelon Glow sleeping mask GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 5. @tula Pro-glycolic 10% resurfacing gel TULA SKINCARE - Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner These all work great if you want results. They gave me results within a week and with consistent use, I see improvements in my skin.

Irritation? Don't know her. 💁🏻♀️
Peels have been key products in my skin care routine, so when the Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel wasn't working for me anymore I was devastated af. I also tried the Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment and it would make my skin burn too. I also find the smell to be horrible and the gritty stuff made it burn more. I heard good things about the NEOGENLAB - Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon and I've been loving K-beauty this year, so I gave it a try. This is my new favorite product. I saw instant results and it makes my skin glow. One thing people get wrong about peels is that a burning sensation means that it's working. A slight tingling is fine, but if it feels like it's burning, you might want to use another product! Weekly peels should not burn. I had no bad reaction with this product. It contains lactic acid, glycolic acid, and lemon, orange, and papaya extracts. It helped SO MUCH with texture and my hyperpigmentation so far. It combines gentle physical exfoliation with chemical exfoliation, as one side is a gauze and the other is a quilted pad with softer texture. If you have sensitive skin like me, I'm pretty sure this would work for you too. They also have the wine and green tea options to target other skin concerns. I use this once a week and have been using it for about a month now.
Breaking up 💔
Ok, I gotta talk about Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel This product used to be my holy grail for almost two years. After winning a battle against cystic acne that lasted about 5 months, I was left with scars on my cheeks and some hyperpigmentation. It did a good job at smoothing out my skin and fading stubborn hyperpigmentation. The 2nd wipe with retinol used to make my skin feel so soft and healthy. HOWEVER, it's been two months now that I absolutely cannot use this anymore. My skin randomly got sensitive a few months ago. It makes my skin burn (especially my cheeks) and makes my face turn red. The first wipe is so irritating that the second wipe feels like sandpaper. I think the insanely-high amount of denatured alcohol has to do with the irritation. I have to make it clear that I really don't think this product was the cause of my sensitive skin though. I turned 25 and have gone through many body changes in the last year, but this product is really not suitable for my skin anymore. I also decided not to use so many actives everyday (this is a daily peel) to make sure to protect my skin barrier. I will unfortunately be parting ways with this product and will find another chemical exfoliator that won't make my skin feel like I'm pouring alcohol on an open wound. It did work for me for a while, but I don't think you should use this if your skin is sensitive. The price is also kind of ridiculous and the single-use wipes in individual wrapping is not super eco-friendly.

Top Cleansers of 2020!
Starting off with my top first cleanses because it’s important to double cleanse!!! Top Oil Cleanse: TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser This cleanser is one that I won’t stop talking about. It’s a great texture that emulsifies easily and doesn’t leave a film on my skin at all. It’s pricey, but it’s an experience. Top Cleansing Balm: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm I picked this up while travelling (sigh... early 2020...) and I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. I’m very much one to not buy into the hype of products, but now I understand why there is so much hype! It’s a sorbet texture that emulsifies and doesn’t leave a film on the skin! Top Misc. First Cleanse: Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Makeup Removing Meltaway Cleanser (📍) This is a new find from me, but none the less, it’s amazing. This cleanser is very unique, because it’s one that you don’t have to rinse... let me explain. So this as a milky cleanser that melts away face and eye makeup or SPF, but can we wiped away with a face cloth, like a Makeup Eraser. I honestly didn’t think that this would work, but I’m actually very surprised by this. I was sent this product by the DDG team and am featured in a video on the @ddgcanadateam instagram using this cleanser, go check it out to learn more! And now with the second cleanses. New Favourite: skinfix - Barrier+ Foaming Oil Cleanser This was actually more of a new find because I began using this in September. At first, I was confused because of the “foaming oil cleanser” title. I went to use this as my first cleanse one night and it went horribly. Now that I know that this is a second cleanse, I use it almost every night. This and my FOREO - LUNA fofo (📍) pair amazing together. OG Favourite: comfort zone - comfort zone Essential Cleansing Milk I got a facial done around May, and the aesthetician used this product, I instantly fell in love. This does have a smell to it, but it’s so lovely. This is gentle and hydrating so I don’t have to worry about my skin being dry, red and irritated. Love this stuff!
Not the usual makeup remover
I have been testing out 𝘋𝘳. 𝘋𝘦𝘯𝘯𝘪𝘴 𝘎𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴 𝘏𝘺𝘢𝘭𝘶𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘤 𝘔𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘔𝘦𝘭𝘵𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘊𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘳 from few weeks now. So what is this product basically and what does it do? This is an oil-free, nourishing cleanser that completely dissolves waterproof makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping the moisture barrier. Hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive skin. Loaded with hyaluronic acid, sea grapes, kiwi, and aloe, this hydrating, lightweight formula melts away the day’s impurities and stubborn, waterproof eye makeup while preventing moisture loss. My Experience with it: I use it as my first cleanse cleanser. It has been great at removing makeup and spf without stripping my skin off natural oils. Sometimes with nourishing cleansers my skin doesn’t feel clean but that’s not the case with this one, it removes all the makeup & dirt. It hasn’t broken me out. You don’t need rinse after this cleanser, just wipe it away. It has a jelly/pudding type texture and a sweet faint scent to it. The thing I love the most about it is the packaging, it’s so convenient. I love the tube packaging over jars any day! Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Makeup Removing Meltaway Cleanser

Recently I’ve gone through a lot of products and emptied a couple favourites, so I’ve changed up some products in my routine and thought I would do an updated day time routine. My first step is always cleansing, I haven’t gone through my comfort zone - comfort zone Essential Cleansing Milk but I’m pretty close to done, over half way, but it should last me at least another month. Next I spray my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha and immediately put on the Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍). I’ve only been using this Youth to the People spay for a month, but I’ve already seen it make a huge difference in my glowiness and hydration through the day. The serum has also improved my skin a lot as my skin is sensitive to vitamin c, this has the brightening (niacinamide) and the antioxidant protection (goji fruit) that a vitamin c serum would have, without the irritation. Next I put on my The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (📍) eye cream/serum, this helps to de puff my under eyes in the morning. My last three steps are to moisturizer with the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Moisturizer (📍), apply my current SPF which is the THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream and moisturizer my lips with the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom . I also want to start a new system in my posts, products with a 📍behind it on my posts, I received for free, as I’m trying to be more conscious of that. I’ve gone back on past posts and utilized this system. Thanks for reading! 📍= product was sent to me for free
Top Serums of 2020!
I like all these serums for different reasons. For exfoliating: SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment This has been my go too this whole year, so creamy and hydrating, but still gently exfoliates. One of the best serums I’ve tried to get rid of blemishes and texture. For brightening: CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution (📍) I’m very sensitive to Vitamin C, so this has been my go too for four years for brightening sun spots and hyperpigmentation. It also hydrates my skin which is an added bonus. For summer: THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum This is a recent find, I found this gem in March while my skin was really breaking out. During the summer, this serum was really lightweight, but a great niacinamide serum for more combo-dry skin as it contains hyaluronic acid. For winter: Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍) This serum is so creamy and beautiful in texture. It hydrates, but still has that niacinamide to help even the skin tone. This also has goji which is a great antioxidant! 📍= product was sent to me for free

Amazing moisturizer for winter ❤️❤️
I got this recommended from Mecca and I love it so much because now it’s winter and this moisturizer have made my face improve better from dry and which is easier for me to apply makeup on. Also it so hydrating and oil free which is so good for combination type . I love it when we apply it on our face it so cool and fresh. I didn’t give a five because I don’t like how they didn’t give us anything to scoop the product so we have to use our hand and take the product out which is not hygiene. That all I didn’t like but for the product it just amazing ❤️Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion
Affordable Lightweight Moisture
These two products are very similar, but at very different price points. Both the Moisture Cushion and the Water Gel are lightweight, oil free dimethicone based moisturisers with hyaluronic acid/sodium hylaluronate. They have a very similar feeling when applied to the skin and both sit under makeup effortlessly, with fast absorption. Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion This product is a dimethicone based moisturiser with sodium hyaluronate (the salt form of hyaluronic acid) which attracts moisture from the air into the skin. It contains Marine Algae which is high in amino acids and vitamin B, to keep the skin balanced and moisturised. This product also contains AHAs in a low concentration, both glycolic and lactic, in order to gently exfoliate dead skin cells leaving the skin more radiant. This is perfect for those with skin on the oilier side or normal skin during summer months. This product leaves the skin hydrated and bright without leaving the skin greasy or disturbing makeup. At $106NZD for 50ml this product is $2.12/ml Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel This product is very similar to the DDG in that it is dimethicone based and has a very lightweight feel. This product also contains sodium hyaluronate to suck in the moisture from the air and boost the skins hydration. It uses glycerin as it’s primary humectant which is hydrating as well as antimicrobial making this product good for those who may be more prone to breakouts. It is non-comedogenic, and oil free so great for oilier skin types. This product doesn’t contain the amino acids or vitamins of the Marine Cushion so it is primarily a hydrating cream rather than restorative or balancing. This product is great for teens and young adults who are looking to hydrate their skin without the need of anti ageing or restorative hydration. Unfortunately this product contains fragrance and blue colorant which could be potential irritants for those with sensitive skin. It retails for $32NZD for 50ml meaning it is $0.64/ml, though you can often get it on special from a drugstore/supermarket. Neither of these products will be all that useful for those with true dry skin- they are most beneficial towards those with oily/combo/normal skin who are looking to avoid dehydration in the skin. Their ingredients lists and purposes are very similar, and I would definitely consider the Hydro Boost an affordable dupe for the Marine Cushion

Skincare Alphabet - F is for Ferulic Acid
Yay! Finally time for one of my favorite and, to me, must have ingredients: Ferulic Acid! Ferulic acid is an antioxidant found in the cell walls of certain plants (rice, oats, apples seeds, etc) and serves the purpose of protection and preservation of the cell. This acts as other antioxidants do, slowing down the aging process and by reducing free radical damage on the skin. It has also been shown to greatly improve skin that has already experience damage from the sun and environmental conditions. This is an amazing ingredient if you are looking to combat signs of aging early, and in my opinion, the sooner you start the better. Ferulic acid is often paired with other antioxidants like Vitamin C and E to enhance their effects and provide more stability to unstable ingredients, like vitamin C. My favorite products that include Ferulic acid: Dr Dennis Gross - Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum MAELOVE - Glow Maker SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum
Milia under eyes
I have been using Murad - Vitamin C Dark Circle Correcting Eye Serum Dr Dennis Gross - Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum for milia under the eyes and it is not helping at all. Any other suggestions please It bothers me a lot Thank you

- Face Serum/
- Face Cream/

Overall honestly I did not like this product because I didn’t see anything happening after multiple uses. It made no difference to my pores, but did somewhat help with brighting. $17 for 5 and generally this product is $80+ at Sephora for 60 pads. Wouldn’t recommend
Dr Dennis Gross-Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel
🍊 This peel looks pretty a-peel-ing!
Dr dennis gross is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their award winning at-home peels and they kindly gifted me a box of the Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peels. This is an easy 2-step treatment that will help to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, pores, and prevent frequent breakouts. The process works by gently exfoliating, smoothing, then neautralizing your skin with a blend of glycolic, salicylic, lactic, mandelic acids and also retinol. Whenever I use this peel, my skin definitely looks more even toned, radiant, youthful, and overall, just healthier. And I really love how quick, simple, and effective they are. I chose to try the Extra Strength version because my skin is used to stronger acids but, depending on your skin, they come available in 3 different strength levels (Ultra Gentle, Universal, and Extra Strength) to suit each skin type. Have you tried this yet? If not, you can find this product at sephora, just in time for their upcoming sale.
Dr Dennis Gross-Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel
⭐️ Dr. Dennis Gross Eye Serum ⭐️
When I received this sample I was so excited to try it mainly because the full sized had a high price tag. Pricier skincare means better results right? Well I was wrong. Initially I used this by dabbing a tiny dot on my ring fingers and massaging around my eye area including the under eyes and lips. Then I discovered I was applying eye serums wrong and then started lightly massaging it around my orbital bone as I was told to do. Either way, I did not see any results which is technically a good thing for my wallet 😜
Dr Dennis Gross-Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum
Pore perfecting serum
I had to be honest about this product. I Had really high standards about this one. I bought this in sephora in December, I’ve been using this since then, I haven’t seen many differences but i like the product. I wouldn’t purchase it again. It’s not a bad product, but it doesn’t make miracles on my skin. That’s why i give 5 stars, i know it is a good product but it doesn’t do it in mine. I have read many reviews about this one so, you can give it a try
