I want to talk to you guys about the Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel. I have tried this before and is currently my favorite product to purchase at Sephora. I've been asked many times via my blog and Instagram, other various social media sites what the BEST thing for aging worn skin is, and I always respond with Dr Dennis Gross Beta Peel Pads.
This peel is an extra-strength version of Dr. Dennis Gross' patented #1-selling Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel on pre-soaked cotton towelettes. Higher concentrations of Alpha Beta Acids plus newly added anti-aging boosters, including Mandelic Acid and Willow Bark Extract, deliver a stronger peel without risk of irritation or recovery time. Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel diminishes lines, wrinkles, pore size and helps to treat breakouts. This extra strength version is best suited for stubborn skin conditions that have not responded favorably to other anti-aging treatments.
What does it fight?
•Aging – it smoothes the appearance of fine lines and instantly firms.
•Acne and oil - problem skin is sent running by controlling excess oil, minimizing enlarged pores and lessening scars.
•Dullness – It brightens by removing dead skin cells; improving clarity and eliminating dullness.
•Redness and Sensitivity – As powerful as it is, it also helps calm and soothe any skin irritation you might have
The box contains 30 packets of both Step 1 and 2. Two moist packages you rub on your face to get fast results. First you take Step 1, (which smells like an alcohol pad or wet wipe) and rub it all over your face in circular motions. Then you take the 2nd pad and do the same thing. Right away you feel the tightening and tingling, (always a good sign for me) My skin is extra sensitive so I was worried because the words "Extra Strength" can sometimes mean irritation, but not with this product.
My skin has been very "dull" lately, and just today my boyfriend noticed a new line on my face. (Gee thanks!) So as soon as I got home, I used the Extra Strength Peel, and immediatly I saw results. My skin was automatically brightened and the oily spot around my forehead was corrected. I see this being an effective product for acne prone skin and oily skin tones.
Even the best of skin types could benefit from the Alpha Beta Peel. Everyone can use a little brightening, and I noticed my forehead felt much tighter after using the peel. If you have large pores, you MUST try this product. Nothing will work better and harder on a clogged face.
The Dr Gross Extra Strength Peel is Paraben, Sulfate and Phthalate free as well as vegan and cruelty free. I should also mention that in studies 96% of users reported that their skin looked more youthful and glowing. I have not read one bad review about the pads, and I will be purchasing these when mine are gone. I rarely say that!
Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Peel: 10 Individual Packettes /$35 or 30 Applications/$85 available at http://www.dgskincare.com and Sephora.com I consider this a MUST HAVE for anyone with aging skin, so basically ANYONE over the age of 30.
