Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel Review!
I have another Bloom Ambassador box review for you today! This one I was very hesitant to use, because it is a Face Peel, and I think we have all heard or seen bad things as a result to facial peels. I didn’t want to head into work looking like my skin was peeling off my skull. Luckily Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel was nothing like that! This peel provides higher concentrations of Alpha Beta® Acids, plus new anti-aging boosters, including mandelic acid and willow bark extract without added irritation or recovery time.
I was given a 5 day supply to test out. I took a picture on Day 1 right before I applied my first application. Each application has a 2 step application process. Each are in convenient wipe form! After a nightly cleanse, dry your face and take out the Step 1 cloth and in a circular motion, wipe the cloth all around your face until the cloth becomes fairly dry. Toss the cloth and wait 2 minutes. My first application for the Step 1 cloth made my face sting just a little. It was mild, but noticeable.
Once Step 1 was completed and the 2 minutes were up, I applied Step 2! Step 2 was applied in the same fashion, in a circular motion all around my face and neck area until the cloth started to feel dried out. Step 2 didn’t sting at all, instead it felt like a million tiny bubbles bursting all over my face. It actually made me feel really clean!
On Day 5, I snapped a photo as well for the Before/After effect. Visually, I don’t see a huge difference. I did notice my pores were a little smaller, but the biggest difference was in the feel of my skin. It was so incredibly smooth and my normally dry skin wasn’t an issue. No itching or flakies at all (thank goodness!) and I didn’t experience any bad effects from the Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel! No peeling, no redness and no breakouts. Breakouts are NOT uncommon though! Sometimes the use of a new product can cause your face to “Purge” and bring any impurities to the surface. If that happens, just continue use for a bit longer and it should clear up. If it doesn’t – the product just may not be for you.
Ready for some Before/After shots? Be nice! No makeup on in these (except I did apply mascara… I do have some issues with makeupless photos lol)
Difference isn’t huge, but like I said, the feel was so worth it! My skin hasn’t felt this good in awhile! Glad I decided to give this a shot, even though I was scared at first!
Just for fun, this pic was taken after Day 5 as well. This is me and my son yesterday… I actually went out all day with only a little face powder on and some mascara. Didn’t need concealer or my face primer and I was ok with it!
Price for Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel: $85.00 for 30 applications
Would I repurchase?: Sadly, I will probably pass. Pricewise, it is out of my range. If the price was lower, I would.
