|Day 1 Before|
I watched the associate use the tool three or four times, and I noticed that Dr. Dennis Gross products were near the top of the recommendations list each time. I didn't want to spend a lot on a product that I didn't know would work, so Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel 14 Day Challenge product seemed perfect to me. It was about half the price of the full-sized product I was interested in, the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution,A tiny (0.25 oz) sample of this product is included in the kit as the final step.
Here's my protocol for the challenge. I am using the kit in the evenings, after washing with my Clarisonic Mia 2 (with a Delicate brush head) and CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. I'll follow later with CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. In the morning, I'll just wash my face with my hands and the same cleanser and use a moisturizer with sunscreen. I'll report my results in 14 days, and maybe even check in midway if it seems like there is anything happening.
The facial kit includes 14 days worth of peel pads -- the first step is the peel and the second step supposedly neutralizes the peel ingredients. I got the regular version but there is also an Extra Strength version. The peel pads are about the size and texture of Wet-Naps. Some people have reported cutting them in half and stuffing them back in the packets and somehow resealing them to make them last longer. I am just using them as is, but I'm doing my neck and décolletage as well. I even might do the backs of my hands.
I noticed a tingling sensation when using the first peel pad, which was just short of unpleasant, but did make me feel like the product was working. I set a timer on my phone for the two minutes specified on the package directions before tearing into the second pad. It did seem to soothe that tingly feeling.
The next step was to smooth on some of this serum. It was hard to know how much to use but I tried a dropperful. I might try using a little less next time., as I had more than enough and I don't want to waste any.
Have you had any experience with this or a similar product?
