I was the tester for Dr. Dennis Gross’ most cult product, the Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel . I went for the extra strength ones because I’ve used glycolic acid before and my skin was fine with it.
These glycolic-based pads work in a two-step process, the Step1 pad is the only one on the market to combine all five skin improving acids (Glycolic, Lactic, Malic, Citric and Salicylic), the Step2 pad is soaked in antioxidants (including Retinol, Ubiquinone & Resveratrol). Combined one after the other hey promise to “combat fine lines, enlarged pores, blemishes, dark spots and redness, helping uneven, scarred or lack-lustre skin, while fortifying with free-radical fighting ingredients.”
I used them every day for two weeks and you can see the results above (I took the pictures in the morning standing by the same window and tried to pull my best ‘Passport Photo’ face). The treatment reduced the overall redness of my skin and made it much more luminous, it was over the time of the month and I didn’t get the usual one cystic spot on my chin AND the wrinkles around my eye are definitely looking more shallow. Very happy with this one.
