Thanks to a work perk I got two Dr. Dennis Gross products a few months ago that I have been using nonstop. I know his products are pricey but I don’t feel like a total ass hole suggesting them after getting them for free because I continue to purchase the alpha beta peel pads and did buy the serum!
Catch up on my full thoughts on the peel pads, here, but all you need to know is that they are life changing! Also, cut them in half you don’t NEED the entire thing and it saves $$!
Ok so first up, Clinical Concentrate Hydration Booster. It is a moisturizing serum that I use as a moisturizer! My main thing with daytime moisturizers is I feel that my makeup looks heavy on top of them. Once the weather cools down I will probably add in a light one but for now, this has been perfect on its own!
This again is a serum that “Replenish hydration with microdroplets of this weightless, greaseless serum containing hyaluronic acid, evening primrose oil, and coconut fruit juice to instantly hydrate and plump skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles”. It never makes my makeup cakey, they even recommend mixing it with your foundation which I need to try. I have been using this almost daily and my makeup has been staying put and my skin doesn’t dry out sitting in blasting AC all day.
Now to his real moisturizer: C+ Collagen Deep Cream that “An intense concentration of nourishing oils extracted from camellia japonica seed, sunflower seed, and rice bran provide rich moisture to repair skin’s barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. Revive dry, lackluster, aging skin into a plumped, energized, and brighter complexion.” I use this one at night after beta peel pads and a few other things and wake up feeling refreshed and hydrated….never greasy! Note: I did use this today under my makeup because my skin was drier than normal. So far I am pleased with the results!
The C+ Collagen Serum is something I haven’t been able to tell what it is doing. I mentioned in a previous beauty post that I find it hard to notice serums change. Which is probably bad considering that they are priced higher and suppose to be more potent. I have a few skin issues I need to tackle before I think serums start revealing their true power on my skin. To be honest, I bought this because I was exchanging a mask I didn’t think was worth the quantity and wanted something new 🙂 eeek I am bad.
