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
my holy grail product for red and dark spots
You may have seen me rave about the Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel before, but that’s because they do things to my skin that I didn’t know were possible. These pictures are 9 days apart, and in between when they were taken, I used these peeling pads for three consecutive days. Only three days! These are pricey, so I’m only using them now because as you can see, I’m healing from a pretty bad breakout that left me with a lot of post-acne marks. I’m really hoping the meds I just started taking will prevent breakouts like this in the future, but in the meantime, these will always be the product I turn to for rapid improvement in acne and pigmentation.

My PM routine!
This is my basic nighttime routine. I’ll sometimes swap in a different mask or serum depending on my skin’s needs, but this is the core of it! My concerns are acne and post-acne red marks, and I’ve seen significant improvement over the past few months (note that some of this is definitely due to the oral meds I’m taking for acne). 1. First I remove my makeup with The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser . This is a great, less expensive first cleanse: it removes all my makeup and sunscreen, emulsifies well, and rinses clean. 2. Next, I cleanse with Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel . This isn’t a miracle product for me, but it’s a good second cleanse and it doesn’t leave my skin tight or dry. It seems a bit pricey, but you actually only need a very small amount because it lathers so easily. I won this in a giveaway and I don’t think I would purchase it once I’m done with this bottle. 3. Most nights I’ll use the PETER THOMAS ROTH - Therapeutic Sulfur Acne Masque as a spot treatment. This mask is great for big angry pimples, but it can be drying and the smell makes my eyes sting if I use it on my whole face. This tub will last me a long time as a spot treatment, though! 4. After removing the sulfur masque with water, I use the Dr Dennis Gross - Clinical Grade IPL Dark Spot Correcting Serum . This is a good serum for dark spots, with multiple powerful ingredients. However, I don’t think it’s worth the price tag of $92 for 1oz. 5. Last, I mix my prescription apostrophe cream (.05% tretinoin + 4% niacinamide) with the Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Repair Face Cream with Niacinamide . I really, really like this cream—it smells amazing and does a great job of soothing my redness, acne, and dryness from other products. Buffering my tret with this cream has been a game changer.
Stress repair face cream with niacinamide
I got the new Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Repair Face Cream with Niacinamide in a giveaway with the brand, where they sent me a routine customized for my skin’s needs. This cream has niacinamide, superfoods, adaptogens, and sweet almond oil, and it claims to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier and help correct/prevent signs of stress like redness, dryness, and dullness. This cream is suuuuper thick and luxurious. It feels deeply nourishing on my skin, and when I apply it there’s a very subtle cooling sensation—it feels very calming. I use this as my last step in my night routine, and it definitely helps soothe my redness. I’m pretty sure the niacinamide is helping calm my current breakout and reduce redness. Long story short, I really love this cream—like almost as much as the DDG peel pads. A little goes a long way.

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

Get Glowing Skin for Beginners ✨
So you’re getting into skincare and want to get the glow? For me, glowing skin is about overall skin health. Here are the top tips I have! I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. 💛Acne Attack My skin journey began with a lot of hormonal and cystic acne so I started figuring out what to do to deal with that. I currently give credit to the following for really making a difference: ✨Retinol/Retinal These increase skin cell turnover so they are essentially acne medication. I recommend starting very slowly with these at night with a heavier moisturizer because they can be drying. These heal my breakouts faster and prevent them in the first place. ✨Vitamin C I give this lots of credit for helping with any hyperpigmentation that happens after breakouts. So incredible for acne scars and overall brightening your skin! I love to use mine during the day to fight free radicals. ✨Sunscreen The true hero of skincare. If you’re not using this, nothing else matters. I recommend Krave - The Beet Shield which also has vitamin C. ✨Double cleansing at night. Buy a cleansing balm and gently massage your face for 10 minutes. Seriously you will feel the junk leaving your pores. This helps take off makeup, sunscreen, dirt and pollutants from the day. Always do this at night before a regular water-based cleanser like Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser 💛HYDRATION I always tell people when they start, find a good cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. This is the core of skincare health. Sure the actives are great for specific concerns, but the basics can take you far too. When I’m looking for a moisturizer, I want ceramides in it. I currently alternate between these two: #FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FiveStars] #CeraVe - Healing Ointment[products]#[FiveStars] The healing ointment is best for night because it is THICK and no joke but wow does it always hydrate my entire life. 💛Exfoliation Exfoliation is huge for glowing skin. I prefer chemical exfoliation because it is gentler than physical scrubs. You’ll want to look for anything with AHA, BHA or PHA. My favorite exfoliants are: FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications Honeymoon Glow has AHA as well as gentle flower acids. I find this literally does give me a glow the next morning and is great for breakouts. It can feel a bit strong so maybe start slow and work your way up. Other things that helped me: ✨I stopped drinking ✨I drink way more water now ✨Using Pink Clay masks removes impurities when needed ✨Niacinamide (I’ll use this for texture with Vitamin C and yes you can use them together safely- there’s an old belief that you can’t) ✨SUNSCREEN AGAIN 💚The key is consistency in your routine, using products that work for YOU and adjusting here and there for concerns. #CheriePartner
This is my 3 week progress !
I do a double cleanse once in the morning and once at night. I use GARNIER - Micellar Water Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin to remove oil, dirt and sebum. Next I use FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser which is super gentle for my sensitive skin. I felt it’s the only cleanser gentle enough to cleanse my face but not irritate it or dry it out. It has a nice and creamy texture that I love. I then follow up with Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications . I really like it as I feel it evens out my skin tone and I always heard that chemical exfoliators are a lot better for your skin than the other types. The only thing I don’t like is the price but compared to how how much I would pay if I were to get a skin care treatment done this is worth the price. I use this 5 time’s a week. As the other 2 time’s a week I am using a different peel and I don’t want to over exfoliate. After this I go in with the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% . I feel it’s good but because my skin has a lot of scaring I know it will take more than just 3 weeks. I will continue to use this product as I really like how it brightens and evens out my skin tone. It’s also helping to make my acne scaring go away. The price is also very attractive! I then use fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer this stuff is amazing ! I swear by it. I have used plenty of other moisturisers that break my skin out but this one makes my skin feel really nice and hydrated and still makes it feel hydrated in the morning. If it is day time then afterwards I will put a sunscreen. I use Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 . Personally I don’t like it. I feel it clogs up my pores and as I have dry skin I feel it doesn’t hydrate my skin as it should. During summer I was my son’s sunscreen and felt it did a better job so I might switch to it after. I’m only continuing to use this until it runs out but I won’t repurchase . Once per week (Monday nights after cleansing I use DARPHIN - Youth Resurfacing Peel my skincare feels really nice after I use this. It’s quite pricey but I feel it works to even out my skin tone and help with acne scars. Thursday nights I use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution . Overall my skin has had a massive outcome and I’m really happy with these products. I’m so excited to see how it will be in 2 months from now. I suffer from dry and sensitive skin, eczema, acne scarring and pigmentation. I watch Hyram on YouTube and many of these products are recommended by him. This is the best my skin has ever looked.

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
NEW🎉 MAKEUP REMOVER
Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Makeup Removing Meltaway Cleanser 💛 ⠀⠀ This is an oil free, hydrating makeup remover for all skin types👍 Also Cruelty Free & Vegan🐰🌿 ⠀⠀ For the test, I used nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, KISS Me Eyeliner, revlon Candid Concealer & elf Color Correcting Stick It removed all products (eyeliner needed a little bit more time so perhaps use eye makeup remover for eye area)💦 ⠀⠀ After wiping off, it felt hydrating and smelled sweet. I tried it on my face as well & results were similar. Very hydrating & creamy texture makes it easy to massage in. ⠀⠀ I have combination acne prone skin for a reference #CherieCreator

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 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.
Pores look less noticeable but...
Any products that get rid of the malasma (dark spots) on my upper lip? I hate that it makes me look like I have a mustache. Lol also looking for an eye cream... these mid 30s are for the birds. I will say I’m loving Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum at the moment. I can definitely see a difference in pore noticeability & skin texture.

Hormonal Acne Redness Reduced by Chemical Peel
I took the peel challenge! Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel I used this product for 7 days and I love what it did to my face! I believe that with longer and more consistent use my skin would be completely clear. I got this set in the mail for free to try I am not sure how it got sent to me but I am so glad that it did. The chemical peel comes in two steps. Both are wipes - super easy and fun to use. You open step one and apply it to your face. Step 1 is a chemical exfoliation - you can feel it working right away. It contains: ￼7 AHAs / BHAs ￼Vitamins ￼Antioxidants These ingredients work together to smooth & retexture your skin, Target pores and give you instant radiance! I felt “prettier” right away after using it - my skin just felt like all the nastiness was taken out - even after I already cleaned with a scrub I found that I felt much cleaner after using the wipe. Step 2 is an anti-aging neutralizer which contains retinol, resveratrol, and green tea extract. This wipe soothes, hydrates and repairs your skin. I noticed changes after only three days - the redness in my cheeks was greatly reduced. Even my mom told me that my skin looked SO GOOD. I have been suffering with redness and uneven skin ever since my baby was born. With this product I feel like there is hope to have clear skin. This product costs $88 for 30 applications or a month or so of use. You can get away with skipping a few days but i think the best results are when you use it every day. This product is expensive but I would make the purchase if I had a fancy event coming up.
🍊 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 Stress Serum
The serum that never fails to repair my skin 👍 . I’ve been using it almost everyday for the past three months, and it’s been one of the best additions to my skincare routine. With amazing ingredients such as niacinamide, ashwagandha and goji extract, this serum never fails to calm and nourish my skin. I use this almost everyday, but it’s especially helpful when my skin is freaking out, irritated, breaking out or all of the above. I use it at night, and the next day I wake up to a much more calm and clear skin. . I highly recommend this serum to anyone who struggles with irritated or breakout prone skin. Both ashwagandha and niacinamide do an amazing job at calming and keeping the skin clear, no matter your skin type! . . . . gifted
My favorite duos Dr. Dennis Gross - at first I didn’t think it was doing much. A week later, I started noticing the small fine lines in my forehead were reducing and so were my enlarged pores, which I have been suffering from for a very long time! I absolutely love to put this on almost every day after Paula’s Choice Peptide BoostDr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide Paula’s Choice Peptide Boost - has given me so much radiance and a true boost to my skin routine!

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 akin that has already experience damage from the sun and environmental conditions. This is an amazing ingredient of 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

Spf is an absolute must! These are my favorite so far. I always apply spf after my skincare and before primer. All of these make my skin glow.

Dr Dennis Gross-Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50
This was the first real product I’ve bought from Dr Dennis Gross and honestly I was blown away! I really enjoyed this cleanser and using it for the last 2 & a half months. Really wasn’t sure how the mini size would last but it’s still going! Didn’t bother or flare up my acne
Dr Dennis Gross-Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel
✨EYE CREAMS✨current favs …………………………………………………………………………………………… 💦 Dr. Dennis Gross “Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Gel”: has more of a lotion/gel texture & dries almost instantaneously. Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient so it provides good hydration & helps smooth away fine lines- also contains green caviar algae (boosts elasticity & smoothes fine lines), caffeine/carribean gorgonian extract/sarsaparilla root (reduces water retention under the skin surface to diminish puffiness & dark circles) & optical diffusers (brightens). When I use it before bed it helps prevent under eye puffiness (which I can get to the extreme). . 💕Saturday Skin “Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream”: contains date seed extract (brightens), Cha-7 es Complex (peptide complex to support the skin’s natural regeneration process), avocado protein extracts (firm & depuff) + hyaluronic acid (nourish & maximize hydration)-it has a lightweight gel/cream texture so it quickly absorbs into skin but it still provides good hydration! I really like the texture of this one, & it helps w/ my under eye puffiness! . 💦 Neocutis “Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream”: this is probably my favorite anti-aging eye cream of all time in terms of efficacy (& value at $97). I was first introduced to this eye cream at my local dermatologist’s office & have repurchased at least 7X now (even though a little goes a long way!). It contains Processed Skin Cell Proteins (an anti-aging blend of proteins/polypeptides that harnesses the power of human growth factors & other biological mediators to fight fine lines/wrinkles), caffeine (depuffs), hyaluronic acid (plumps & hydrates skin ) & bisabolol (primary component of essential oil extracted from chamomile that serves as a skin conditioning agent w/ anti-inflammatory & skin-healing effects to diminish dark circles, fight the appearance of fatigue & increase penetration of the other ingredients). It has a “true eye cream” texture but it absorbs into skin quickly & helps prevent & reduce my eye puffiness. ………………………………………………………………………………………… ****all purchased on my own = all honest opinions****
Dr Dennis Gross-Hyaluronic Marine Dew It Right Eye Gel
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 is a free sample from Sephora that I’m glad wasn’t a purchase. I was using it faithfully day and night because it’s a pretty good size sample. It doesn’t take the under eyes long to soak in the benefits of a eye cream so I saw no results after 2 weeks of use. I used a sample by Olay’s eye cream and immediately saw results. They listed this eye cream for $48. Why? It’s a waste of my precious time.Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Dew It Right Eye Gel
