Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™

Birchbox Breakdown

If the word peel scares you, don’t worry: this skin-saving treatment won’t leave you with an angry tomato face. More than just an exfoliator, it actually improves the texture of your skin, minimize pores, lighten darks spots, and add moisture. You’ll see an immediate difference: smoother skin and fewer breakouts.

How it Works

Each application includes two pre-soaked pads. First, lightly rub your face with the Step 1 pad, which has been soaked in a cocktail of glycolic, lactic, malic, and citric acids, plus healing chamomile and green tea extracts. This sloughs away dead cells to create an even, healthy complexion. The second pad balances and boosts skin with anti-aging ingredients such as retinol and resveratrol, plus antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E.

How to Use

Once a day, apply Step 1 pad to clean, dry skin, using small circles to cover the entire face and neck. Don’t press too hard and stop when the pad starts to feel dry. Wait two minutes and apply a Step 2 pad in the same way. Do not rinse or use products containing alcohol after either step. Your skin may tingle a bit but it goes away fairly quickly. Follow with a protective moisturizer and SPF.

Can't live without!

I was a little nervous about these at first - but now that I've been using them everyday, I definitely can tell when I don't use them! I apply them every night, right before bed. Yes, my skin does seem to be a little oilier in the morning (I've always assumed that's because I've stripped off the old skin overnight) - but after washing and prepping my face for the next day, I don't get that oiliness. My skin feels cleaner and looks brighter!

Love these peels
Purchased

I've been a fan of these peels for several years. I started getting so many compliments on my skin after using these. I really feel like it brightens my skin and gives me a more even skin tone. I

amazing!

I have been using these for a year now and love them. I have sensitive skin and they work really well to control break outs. I use them 1-2 times a week and they work great.

Want Smooth Skin?
Purchased

I read about this from a skin care to the celebs and splurged. But after using for a week, I realized how I don't need to use 30 days in a row. One week and I cannot believe how smooth my skin is already. I am going to use every few days and see if that stills works. I will buy again either way, my makeup feels totally different and I love how my skin feels and looks bare. Awesome and super convenient packaging.

saved my skin

Battled for years with moderate acne all over my face. I use these peels about once or twice a week and my skin has cleared, become more even-toned, slight scarring has gone away, my skin feels less oily, basically a huge turnaround! I live in a super dry climate so make sure to not use any drying products afterward (i.e. acne lotions) which can cause peeling and dryness. Otherwise, excellent results! Even on a limited beauty budget I can justify spending this much every few months it's so good...

Amazing Product

I love these pads! I do not use them daily but a few times a week an anytime I feel my skin is going to break out tht clear it up very quickly. I have combination skin and under skin bumps and this helps give me a smoother skin! Love this!

Amazing!

These peels are amazing. After one use my skin looked more fresh and was incredibly soft. I only use these twice a week -- so they last quite awhile. I have recommended these to at least three of my friends since they work so well!

Visible Improvement

I used these every day for a month and witnessed actual improvement in the tone and evenness of my skin. With a lot of products, you simply have to have faith that it's doing something, but I had definite results from these wipes, especially along the orbital bone. Cleared up a lot of redness. I bought another pack and now use them one-twice a week to keep things fresh.

After 5 days??

I got a five pack of these and though I've read lots of great reviews, I really saw no difference. There was redness and burning as I applied but after a few minutes the pain went away and by morning the redness was gone. My skin did feel softer, but none of the red spots from acne or white bumps or black heads have been removed. All still the same, I had no peeling either. Don't know, guess they just didn't work on my skin. Bummer

my go to for glow

no angry tomato face indeed. I did a full 30 day cycle with the Dr. Gross pads, and now do a few days every week or two to 'maintain'. It's helping to keep my melasma at bey, even during the summer months where the sun really is a challenge.
