I’ll just begin this beauty review by saying this is one of the most amazing skincare products I have ever used. I could probably just stop there, but I’ll go ahead and tell you why I am now an absolute fanatic when it comes to the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel and Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution. For the majority of my life, even in my teenage years, I never had an issue with acne. I would of course get the occasional pimple, but I’ve never had to wear any type of a concealer or foundation unless it was for a photoshoot. I use to consider myself very lucky in the complexion department, but this all changed last April when I moved to Los Angeles. All of a sudden my skin started breaking out and would not stop no matter what I tried. The breakout got so bad they were leaving acne scars on face and I was pretty traumatized about it. I really do not like taking medications of any kind, but was seriously considering going on prescription acne medication as a last resort. However, while visiting my family in Minneapolis, my sister suggested that I give her Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peels a try. My sister’s skin was smooth and glowing, looked poreless and was perfectly blemish-free so she was for sure onto something and I wanted to be on that thing too.
After just two days of trying the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel, I could see a difference in my skin. Even though I still had pimples, my skin was beginning to feel less rough and it looked brighter. Hopeful about the changes my skin had experienced in just two days, I headed to Sephora to purchase my very own supply of the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel and ended up getting the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare 14 Day Challenge With Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution In Extra Strength. I figured if my skin looked a lot better in 14 days I would return and get the full size of both products. The morning after using both the Peel and Solution together, I woke up to radiant skin, I still had pimples, but my skin was absolutely glowing. After about 4-5 days using the Peel and Solution, my pimples began to diminish. It was the best feeling in the world to wash my face and not feel a ton of bumps.
After 14 days of using the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare 14 Day Challenge With Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution, my skin more closely resembles the skin I had before moving to LA. It’s bright, glowing, smooth, soft and acne free! I still have a few noticeable scars from having broken out for like a year straight, but I do notice them fading as I continue to use the Alpha Beta Peels and Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution. After using the Alpha Beta Peels on my face, neck and décolleté, I will also apply them to the back of my hands and have definitely noticed a huge improvement in that area as well.
Not to sound all “acne commercial,” but I could never have guessed the negative impact that acne would have on my self esteem, at times I would get so angry and sad looking at my skin in a mirror and I felt so helpless when it seemed like nothing would help my acne. I definitely have a new level of respect for those who battle acne and am so extremely grateful that my amazing sister pointed me in the direction of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare. Have you tried it?
