Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula Reviews
Ordered this on the back of rave reviews here. I found these ok for reducing pores (mine arent that big anyway) and drying out oily skin but they didnt really make much difference for me. But you have to do a tried and tested and find what works for you. 2 steps daily is a faff and I did these steps until the pads had run out. Ill be going back to The Ordinairy peel as that had some effect, but again minimal. Might just have to bite the bullet and get something more extreme! If it works for you thats great, but its not for me. I did manage to persuade the bf to use this on his nose as he gets sweaty and oily from work and it cleared up his skin a treat!
Must not buy this!
When I bought this product, it must have been £99 (It should have been my first red flag). Let me tell you that I was not able to find any improvements in my skin. Any "skin issues" mentioned in the description, it does not tackle. So, please, do not waste your money on this product.
Before buying I read a lot of reviews and they mostly were positive, but again I didn't believe in this product amazing results, but anyway I decided to buy for my curiosity... My face was polluted and the texture of my skin was not smooth, and the color was not as I wanted matte and healthy because of black spots. When I started to use this product I realised that my skin became softer, smoother and tone of my skin became smooth and pink as baby's , I was surprised ! The result is as after expensive cosmetology procedures . I loved this product and still continue to use it, I hope my skin become better every day.
Finally a product that actually helps
I ordered these thinking, no way the quality would justify the price, but it really does. I've desperately tried so many acne-clearing products over the course of 2 years; a doctor prescribed retinoid treatment, sulfur-based products, zinc-based products, charcoal things, mild salicylic acid stuff and a lot more that I can't remember.
After 2 weeks of use, my skin is looking clearer and glowier than it has in over a year before my skin really started acting up due to hormonal reasons. I never realized how textured my skin was until this peel started doing its miracles on my skin. I have way fewer pimples now, my pores seem somehow cleaner, my skin is glowier but not oilier and dark spots are showing signs of fading.
I love that it has 2 steps to also soothe the skin afterward. Never before have I experienced such a visible difference using a single product. Because of this, I feel like the price is not as bad. (Not that I wouldn't mind paying less though) You don't have to use a thousand other skin-helping products because this one does so much, you can just use a simple cleanser (I use a regular micellar water) and your favorite moisturizer with it and you're good to go. I'm sure I will repurchase and perhaps in the future, I will try cutting the pads in half to get more for the money. I'm really excited to see if this keeps my skin as clear and bright in the future, as well.
I apply the peel overnight and then spray my Odacité mint + green tea/aloe vera spray on top and use an SPF of 30+ every morning/day.
To put it bluntly: I'm really excited that finally, a product is actually making a difference to my problematic skin. I'm eager to see the effects it will have in the long run. Definitely try this one out if you're interested in the promised effects, I can definitely say this product so far has done all that it's promised and a bit more.
I must say that this is one of the products that really made the difference in my skin routine. Just made my skin clearer and a lot of dark spots just disappeared and I must admit that it’s worth any penny!
Although it's a bit pricey , but it's worth every penny!
I had a series of environ peels at my facial center before trying these peels and I must say that the results of these pads are similar to the results of a £60 facial!!! I think in general, having those facials and using these pads have both contributed to improving my skin texture but these are just so amazing. I have a classic case of adult acne but I have not broken out in any big spots since using these! I always wake up with a baby like smooth skin the day after and I will definitely keep repurchasing these in the hope that they will help to fade my small indented scars. I've definitely noticed that my hyperpigmentation is beginning to fade slowly. Another bonus of these is that makeup goes on so smoothly after!
Skin like silk
This product has made my skin brighter and is fading darker batches. It also makes my skin feel like silk to the touch. I also use the Hyaluronic cushion moisturiser and the Ferlinghetti retinal eye cream. I've tried many skin care products, Dr Gross is in a different league.
Love it to bits
I usually take very good care of my skin but this product has pushed it to the next level. My skin's texture is completely changed from using this product. I usually try not to touch my face too much to prevent acne outbreaks but lately I've been noticing that my skin feels so so smooth, almost silk-like and this condition stays even after I've not used this product for one week or so (my repurchase is on the way).
This is my all time favourite exfoliant. Despite its name it's not too harsh on my skin and makes a noticeable difference to my skin with just one use. I run it over my lips too to keep them smooth - try not to lick your lips afterwards, doesn't taste too good (but then why would it!). Well worth the price. I like the individual packets for travelling. Buy some quickly!
I love these, I have only stopped as it was getting a bit pricey and my skin is so much better these days after adopting a great skin care routine. I would however reuse if any skin was aggravated or not looking its best as it definitely improves my skin.
I absolutely love these pads. I've used so many different liquid exfoliants/pads from all different price points but nothing beats these. They leave your skin feeling and looking so great. I really notice a difference in the brightness of my skin, it's clearer and definitely makes my skin feel softer. They're not cheap but they work so they're worth every penny!
Absolutely love this product! Say hello to a smooth, glowy, healthy skin even after couple of applications! I cut these into half thanks to another reviewers advice and it lasts for 2 months! My pores are less visible, my fine wrinkles and slowly disappearing and my pigmentation is fading away. All this after a week of using. I will be buying this until the end of my life!! Worth every penny!
Amazing product, makes my skin feel truly great.
Silky skin without drying/peeling
I was hooked the moment I received the original formula pads as a gift. These pads make a visible difference with one use, making skin brighter and smoother. The texture of my skin is almost silk-like. Using these made my skin clear of acne too, and the only acne I worry about now are those pesky hormonal spots that pop out once a month. Since they're on the expensive side and I'm just a student, I cut these into half following the suggestion of another reviewer (who actually recommended cutting into quarters, but that's too small for my face).
I actually go foundation-free these days after using this product. I'm so glad I found these!
I absolutely love these. I only came across them in the Goody Bag and they are my holy grail now. I will always buy them. They have cleared up my acne, made my blackheads less visible and made my skin clearer. I love them. They are a little drying so make sure to moisturise after. Thank you Cult.
The only acid pads I'll ever repurchase
I refused to believe in the hype. I thought this was way too expensive, and cheaper pads were equally good. I went through a bunch of pads - First Aid Beauty, Nip+Fab, Pixi, PTR (runner-up), Cane+Austin, Skyn Iceland, Bliss, Jack Black, and even the more expensive Zelens (gifted). Lesson learnt.
No other pads make as evident and visible a difference to the texture of my skin the way DDG pads do. My skin is smoother overnight, and the closed comedones disappear. Scars fade or fill faster. Even the amount of acne I get has reduced considerably.
I cut these into quarters using sanitised scissors; there's enough liquid to cover my face and ears. That way, one box gives me 120 uses.
The hype is real. If you want tangible results, DDG is the way to go. I'll only ever repurchase these from now.
Perfect daily skin smoother
This product has helped eradicate fine lines on my forehead and clear blocked pores and breakouts on my cheeks. My skin is noticeably less oily and my pores are less visible.
I'm currently on my third purchase and I use these alternating with the Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Pads, which I feel are slightly stronger at killIng hormonal breakouts. I was worried that they would dry out, being only held in a plastic tub. As of yet, I have had no issue with that.
This product is utterly incredible!!! I truly could not rate it higher. I am 43, and my key issue is sun spots/hyper-pigmentation patches. I tried virtually every premium and super premium product on the market, but still saw little if any improvement until I started doing these peels. Now for the first time in 10 years I do not need foundation to leave the house! My complexion is back to where it was 10-15 years ago, and my glow is what everyone comments on. My owning warning it: This product is addictive!
