{Tested} Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel

——————————————————————————————————————————————

In the early 90s, celeb dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross, MD, launched his first at-home product, the Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel, designed to bring his signature, skin perfecting formula to the rest of us. More recently, he’s launched a new Extra Strength version (retail value: $88 for 30 applications). The two-step peel comes in the form of two containers of pre-soaked towelettes (similar to makeup remover pads.) Step one contains a proprietary blend of five different acids, including Alpha and Beta Hydroxy that Dr. Dennis Gross promises will minimize the appearance of pores, wrinkles and fine lines, and leave you with firmer, brighter, more even skin. Step two contains retinol, natural antioxidants (such as Resveratrol and green tea extract), and Genistien, an ingredient in soy extract that boosts collagen production and soothes the skin. Sounds apeeling but did it actually work? We sent it to 6 FOFs to test. Read on for their reviews.

M. DIANE GIBSON – San Marcos, NY

Was this product easy to use?
Yes, very easy. The entire procedure took only minutes, and I could feel it working immediately.

Did you see a difference in your skin?
The texture felt softer.  I liked it.

Did the product diminish wrinkles, and reduce pore size and dark spots?
I never had much of a problem with my pores.  However, I have dark patches near my temples.  The product hasn’t done much for this particular problem, which is disappointing.

Did it improve your skin’s tone and texture?
Definitely yes. It’s much softer and moister.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
Yes, especially if it starts working on those brown patches. Even still, I like the softer texture it gives my skin.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Of course.

Please rate this product from 1 (Ugh. This was the worst) to 5 (Loved it!):

CHRISTINE NORMAN – Boise, ID

Was this product easy to use?
Yes, very easy. I used it every morning.

Did you see a difference in your skin?
No, my skin actually broke out in irritating small bumps at one point, which I treated with another product.

Did the product diminish wrinkles, reduce pore size and dark spots?
No.

Did it improve your skin’s tone and texture?
No.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
No, because I did not see any improvement in the skin on my face. I felt I can get better and much less expensive results with cotton balls and a bottle of astringent and a daily moisturizer.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
No.

MARLA RUDONI – Santa Rosa, CA

Was this product easy to use?
Yes, extremely easy. The presoaked towelettes/pads are a great and easy way to distribute the product.

Did you see a difference in your skin?
Yes, a very slight difference in my skin’s texture.

Did the product diminish wrinkles, reduce pore size and dark spots?
I think some of my light wrinkles look a bit better and my pores appear less visible. I have melasma and this product did not decrease the color or lighten the pigmentation.

Did it improve your skin’s tone and texture?
The texture was slightly improved but there was no improvement in my skin’s tone. My skin got a bit red and peeled slightly around the folds of the nose area. Nothing a good moisturizer or Clarisonic couldn’t take care of…Other than that, my skin tolerated the product very well.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
I will not continue to use them. Even though it states the product is ‘best suited for stubborn skin conditions that have not responded favorably to other anti-aging treatments,’ it might not have been strong enough for me to see results.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes, because everyone’s skin is different.

CELESTE M. CRAGO – Bluffton, SC

Was this product easy to use?
Yes, very easy. It is a two-step procedure, two jars of product used two minutes apart. The pads are very thin, but hold a lot of  liquid. There is enough product in one pad to cover my face, neck, decollete and hands, which was impressive. I actually look forward to using the product. It makes my face feel fresh.

Did you see a difference in your skin?
I used it on my face, neck, decollete and hands. I was a beach babe in my youth and now my skin is doing all kinds of weird things.  I was impressed to notice a difference in only 5 days, and by day 7, I knew I wasn’t imagining it.

Did the product diminish wrinkles, reduce pore size and dark spots?
My dark spots on my hands have noticeably improved.  Lines around my mouth and eyes are more smooth, and my pores are tighter.

Did it improve your skin’s tone and texture?
Most definitely!

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
I will definitely  want to use this product, at least three to four more months. I still have discoloration that I would like to fade or hopefully, erase. I think using this product, I am likely to get these results.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Definitely, but I think you’ll have to use it for several months to see if it will work for you.

BERTI KATZ – Suffern, NY

Was this product easy to use?
Yes.

Did you see a difference in your skin?
Yes.

Did the product diminish wrinkles, reduce pore size and dark spots?
It reduced pore size noticeably, reduced dark spots very slightly, however, it did not diminish wrinkles.

Did it improve your skin’s tone and texture?
Yes, a little.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
No, because I do think that it was effective enough to warrant the price.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes, if they are willing to pay that much for it.
