Review: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

So I received the Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel pads to review as part of the Bloom Ambassador's program. We were advised to use the pads for 5 days and take pictures on the first day and the 5th. I've used the Dennis Gross Alpha Beta pads before but I never used them every day and I have always used the regular strength version. I found using the extra strength version everyday was simply too harsh on my skin. The one morning that my skin looked great I had used the peel and then approximately 20 minutes later slathered on Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.

I took pictures on Day 1 and Day 5 but honestly, my skin probably looks better on Day 1! But for your viewing pleasure: me trying to pay attention while taking photographs = horrible photos!

For the love of all things, please do not enlarge them!

Anyway, even though the lighting is slightly different, I don't know if you can see that my skin is more uneven in the second picture. I will continue to use the Dennis Gross Alpha Beta pads every so often when I receive them with Bloom or Sephora orders but I don't think I'll be using them everyday like I did for this testing! These might be fine for girls with less sensitive skin but mine was (is!) not happy at the moment.

Disclosure: I received 5 wipes for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
