After scouring the Internet for a product that would effectively combat my facial skin issues (majorily texture issues caused by past acne marks and etc) I came across the Dr. Dennis Gross line. I will admit I was hesitant in purchasing at first due to the price tag, but almost every single review I read promised it was worth the price tag. After months of waiting and watching prices I finally decided to bite the bullet at Christmas as a gift to myself and I am so glad that I did!!
I have been using this product for approx. 2 weeks (using the product every second or third day as recommended for those with more sensitive or temperamental skin) and the difference im already seeing is tremendous.
As someone who struggled with severe acne as a a young girl into my teen years and early adulthood, I know a lot of us can relate to reliving those same embarrassed, self conscious moments in our adult lives due to the marks and spots and scarring left behind by our once arch nemesis. This was the issue I was living with. I no longer had acne but my skins texture was so bad I felt I may as well have...This product has begun to bring my skin back to life!! My face is more even in tone, texture is improving tremendously, the few break outs I was experiencing have been next to non-existent since starting use.
Again I was hesitant, mostly due to the price tag but also as there are two version available-the original formula and the extra strength. I'm always one to lean more towards the "go big or go home" mentality, and was concerned if they came out with an extra strength formula it was because people perhaps weren't satisfied with the original formulas results. I can tell you first hand, I bought the original formula as I do suffer from psoriasis and didn't want to dry my skin out too much, this product is not drying but soothing, it doesn't make the skin feel tight, waxy or stripped of natural oils.
Definitely glad I opted to try it out, this is now a staple in my skincare regimen, no ifs, ands or buts!!
I got a pack of these pads to try and I really like them!!!! They are super easy to use and give my face a nice glow the next day. This also really helps with any minor breakouts or congestion I'm experiencing (probably due to the ssalicylic acid). Since they are individually packaged, they are perfect for travelling and you don't have to worry about the product trying out and losing effectiveness. I definitely plan to purchase this product when I'm done with my samples!! Be sure to use a good quality sunscreen afterwards since this will increase photosensitivity.
I use this peel once or twice a month throughout the winter only. As you should restrict time in the sun for a week after use. I find it compliments my régime. It's a two step system and I love it. I only purchase in the individual travel packets.
