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.

These do the trick!

I started using this peel a long time ago during my first deployment. I LOVE it! Definitely has an initial tingle but I have never had it be uncomfortable. I wouldn't use this daily but a few times a week will certainly leave you with radiant skin!

Love. This.

I have been getting endless compliments about my skin, since I have been using the Alpha Beta Peel! My face is smooth, soft and luminous! I'm a fan for life!

Best acne product I've ever used
Purchased

The Dr. Gross peel pack is the first product in YEARS that has made a significant improvement on my chin acne - even visits to the dermatologist and facialist didn't work. In 30 days, my chin went from bumpy, red and swollen (and hideous) to smooth and tight. I even started going out without make-up. Love it!

Better than my glycolic peels
Purchased

I have oily skin and because I'm half white and black I get dark brown scars that take forever to go away. This product is great because I can use it every day and get immediate effects. My skin is way smoother and after I moisturize and prime my pores look noticeably smaller, even with foundation. I haven't broken out once since using these and they only tingle on my skin (no burning). I have not noticed a lot of fading on the spots but I have a raised scar that seems to be getting flatter. I bet after a couple more weeks the scars will have faded too. I LOVE THIS BEST of all my skincare products.

Good, but need to use a couple times to see results.
Purchased

I received one of these in a Birchbox a couple months ago and then received a sample at another store. I finally decided to purchase the whole pack. I didn't notice much of a difference after using it the first time (I have combination skin, pretty low maintenance, no major breakouts or pore issues) however, after using 2-3 of them over the last few weeks, I have noticed my skin is smoother and more radiant.

Love!!!!!!

I received these when I bought the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Facial Steamer. It came with 10 of these packs, and after one week of using them I noticed a dramatic change in my skin! I am now obsessed and now they are a must have in my daily skin-care routine!!!

I'm a big fan of chemical peels and this this a great no down time alternative when I need a pick me up. I use retin-a daily and used my first peel tonight. A little redness on my face went away after 15 minutes. Seriously, in live with these.

Not great for sensitive skin

Although I do feel like my skin looked a bit better the next morning, I can't deal with the sting. I have ultra sensitive skin, this peel is not for me. I've tried others that don't make my face feel like it's on fire, but have the same effect.

I absolutely love these! I wasn't sure that they would do much, but boy was I wrong! My skin looked incredible the morning after.

good gift for the GF
Purchased

I received this in my birchbox, but the GF stole it before i could use it. She uses them 2-3 times a week because they are pretty pricy, but she loves how her skin feels afterwards.
