Dr Dennis Gross 20th Anniversary Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula

I was incredibly lucky to meet the amazing Dr Dennis Gross* recently as he launched the new  B₃Adaptive SuperFoods™ Complex range, which will be coming to this blog shortly and he was just incredible to listen too with his passion and infectious energy for skincare. The chance to be able to listen to and question someone such as Dr Dennis was an incredible opportunity and I got to try out and play with some pretty amazing skincare too.

One product which is insanely popular on my social media is the Alpha-Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula* and I had tried them once, via a Beauty Box a long time ago, so it was so nice to learn more about them, their history, why Dr Dennis invented them and perhaps more importantly how to get the best use out of them.  I was very kindly given a box of the Pads to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
Twenty years on from his industry-shaking development of a daily peel to boost radiance, lift away impurities and consolidate texture and tone, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare has blessed the world of beauty with limited-edition releases of his iconic Alpha Beta Peel range. 
These Alpha-Beta Peels are described as being perfect for anyone who might have used many other anti-ageing products and treatments but has had limited success with them. They are also for those who have a complexion that is perhaps scarred, uneven and a bit lacklustre. 

If you have not seen this product before and have no idea what it is, it is best described as being a two-step anti-ageing facial peel which works to quickly address fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, blemishes, dark spots and redness, whilst at the same time fortifying the skin’s fabric with free radical-fighting antioxidants.

This Extra Strength Formula is, I am told, the only peel on the market to combine five alpha and beta-hydroxy acids with potent, wrinkle-wrestling antioxidants - including retinol (vitamin A), ubiquinone and resveratrol. Together, those ingredients work to simultaneously smooth, refine and protect your skin in double-quick time. I was told that with regular use, I would quickly see a difference in the visibility of pores, redness and uneven skin tone and because these pads are suitable for all skin types and don’t cause any discomfort, irritation or unsightly skin-shedding.

As with most products, the advice is to always do a patch test behind your ear before using any glycolic acid-based products. Once you have done that, then you apply Step 1 to clean, dry skin and you should do so using circular motions, working from the forehead to neck. Then having done that, you wait for two minutes before applying Step 2 and for this, you should use the same technique as Step 1 with the circular motions and you keep doing this until pad feels dry. Once these two steps are complete, you should not rinse afterwards or use products containing alcohol.

After I had used these pads, I had expected some reaction but I didn't have a single tingle, no excess redness, no itching, no flare-up - I had absolutely no reaction whatsoever, instead, what I did experience was a soothing of my redness, it feels as though that dullness has gone entirely along with dead skin cells that had been hanging around far too long has gone and my complexion, as my colleagues commented, looked so much brighter. So what I am trying to say is that these pads are absolutely brilliant, they live up to their hype and I have an order of more somewhere in the postal system on their way to me because, after this lockdown, I can imagine my skin will need a lot of TLC!

These Alpha Beta Peel Pads can be found via sites such as Cult Beauty*, SpaceNK*, Selfridges, Harrods* and Lookfantastic with prices ranging from £19 up to £89 for the Red Anniversary Tin.
