Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Review - Does it work?
Working as a model is not easy on your skin.. running between castings gets you tired, long photoshoots in front of harsh hot lights dries out your skin, catwalk shows where they use same makeup brush on everyone in the line.. I could go on and on!
I have tried so many skincare products, but hardly anything surprises me these days. I usually struggle to stick to skincare routine, because I get bored of the products, and I just don't see any results until Dr. Dennis Gross products got in my hands!

Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion
Delivered in a unique water-break gel-cream, this enriched formula features Japanese marine algae and hyaluronic acid chromospheres to lock in moisture and keep skin looking dewy, supple, and plump all day. When I apply it on my skin, it feels just amazing! So soft, refreshing and moist! Just after few seconds of massaging in into my skin, it disappears in my pores leaving nothing behind! No stickiness... No oil.. just soft moisturised skin! I use it everyday before my makeup routine. I found that it makes my foundation 'sit' better on my skin. This cream is perfect for you if you have fine lines and wrinkles, your skin looks a little dull, is sensitive, a little red and dry, or oily. I have been using it for a month and I can see great improvement in my skin. I used to have redness around my nose dry skin on my T area. Now, my skin tone looks much more even and it feels really moisturised and healthy. I would rate it 5 out of 5!!! ★★★★★
C + Collagen Perfect Skin Set & Refresh Mist
This antioxidant-rich treatment and setting mist works triple duty to boost your natural radiance and healthy-looking complexion. From morning to night, the spray protects, hydrates, and refreshes your skin, so your makeup works better for you.
Honestly this spray has a special place in my handbag! Nothing feels better after a long day shooting, than wiping your makeup off and refreshing your skin with this product! It gives that quick rehydration your skin was craving all day! It works amazingly as a makeup set spray. It gives your skin that great dewy, youthful look and I would say, keeps your makeup looking fresh for longer. I would rate this product 4 out of 5, just because.. I could survive without it, but at the same time, since it is in my handbag, and it has been there since the day one.. I don't want it to finish! :) ★★★★
Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel
Dr. Dennis Gross’ iconic original formula, a daily peel formulated to treat three common signs of ageing: uneven tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores, with five acids – without causing irritation.
So this is my SKINCARE PRODUCT FIND OF THE YEAR!!!
I have never used a home peel before, I was a little reluctant to be honest. Knowing that it has acids in it made me a little nervous. I set my timer on to make sure it didn't burn my skin, but to my surprise it was nothing like that! It comes in double package. Wipe No.1 exfoliates & smoothes the skin. The wipe is very moist and has kinda rough feeling about it, but definitely not uncomfortable. You need to use the wipe on your face until it gets dry and wait for 2 minutes, after that, use wipe No.2 and do exactly the same. No need to wash off.
I had quite rough nose. Not so much blackheads, just skin tone bumps that would become more visible when makeup was applied. I have tried all those black masks, steaming, exfoliating, but there were no results. This peel left my skin feeling so smooth, I couldn't believe it! I thought, ok.. feels good, but probably its just some kind of layer that will wash off and the roughness will come through again, but it wasn't a case! My skin stayed super smooth. I have done a two week course of daily peels and cannot be more happy! I will give this product 6 out of 5! I am telling all my girlfriends about it! ★★★★★★
