Falling in love with: Dr. Dennis Gross skincare

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be amongst the lucky few to have experienced a Dr. Dennis Gross professional peel outside of New York City, and at the very talented hands of David Fainer.
Incredibly charming, David is the Director of Sales & Special Events for Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare (formerly MD Skincare), which is in store exclusively in this part of the world at Mecca Cosmetica. Personally trained by Dr. Dennis Gross, brand founder and formulator, David has worked side by side with him for the past six years to conduct skin evaluations and perform cosmetic facial treatments for clients across the US, and now the world. The Chicago resident was loving his chance to travel Down Under, and told me that the brand’s skincare approach was definitely in line with repairing the damage that the sun has wrecked on so many New Zealand and Australian skins.
The hero of the take home range is the legendary Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel, a multi-award winner and “must have” for pretty much everyone who tries it. Naturally milder than the professional peel that Dennis performed on me (he recommends that patients only ever have three or four a year), it is famous for a reason. The beauty of this product is that it tackles pretty much every skin woe, whilst caring for the skin all along the way.
It’s also a little marvel in that it gives visible results instantly. Honestly; results with just one use. Plus, its two-step process takes only two minutes a day! So, how do you use it, I hear you ask?
Step one is the powerhouse, a combination of five Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids (each chosen to provide specific benefits) along with more soothing, yet powerful ingredients like Green Tea extract.
Step two neutralises all of the hard work that was being done in the previous step. Coming in at just the right time too, so that even though the product is strong, it’s just strong enough. Plus, it leaves behind some good ingredients that will continue to help and soothe your skin. And despite my sensitive skin, I’ve experienced very little redness- as powerful as it is, it also helps calm and soothe any skin irritation you might have. My skin quite literally glows after every use. And for an added “just been on holiday” glow, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare also have on offer the Alpha Beta Glow Pad – an anti-aging exfoliating self-tanner with active Vitamin D. Yep, you heard right - an anti-aging self tanner that takes the form of a single step pre-soaked towelette containing Active Vitamin D, Microencapsulated DHA and Soy Proteins. It delivers the colour deep into skin to prevent fading through surface exfoliation.
I’ve only used one of these babies but am definitely going back for more, especially as it’s so simple yet effective. Apply the towellete to face, neck and décolleté in circular motions, blending evenly AM or PM. To customise the colour, increase the number of repetitions to achieve a deeper glow. Perfection!
