I was a guest at a PR event. I’m not under obligation to review or comment. See my full disclaimer below.
I met Carrie Gross to learn about Dr Dennis Gross Skincare at a small event at Selfridges Birmingham. Dr Dennis Gross Skincare is an award-winning range for improving and maintaining healthy skin. It’s easier than ever to try this brand now that it’s available from the Beauty Workshop in Selfridges.
Carrie Gross is the CEO and co-founder of Dr Dennis Gross Skincare. Carrie has been a part of the development of this brand since its inception and is hugely passionate about skincare. Hearing Carrie talk about this range left me mentally writing out a shopping list for everything!
If you want the expertise of Dr Dennis Gross without visiting his New York clinic, then try his skincare range. Each product has the benefit Dr Dennis Gross’ 25 years as a dermatologist, many awards, and recognition in the field of skin cancer. The aim is for everyone to see skin improvements within 90 seconds and continued benefits with ongoing use of Dr Dennis Gross Skincare. Big promises but given the credentials of Dr Dennis Gross, I’d keep an open mind.
It is so pleasing that Dr Dennis Gross Skincare products don’t contain filler. These products are sulphate-free, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and packed with powerful ingredients with purpose. Dr Dennis Gross Skincare also prove their products’ efficacy and effects using clinical tests. This is assurance that these products deliver results and shows that using this range is an investment in your skin.
I admire the ongoing passion to develop products to target skin concerns – to use in Dr Dennis Gross’ New York clinic and in your own home. The range keeps growing from the iconic at home peel to include products to tackle modern skincare concerns. Stay tuned for the B3 Adaptive Superfoods range to treat skin ravaged by the effects of stress. I think it’s going to be a game-changer for so many people, myself included!
I was able to try some of the Dr Dennis Gross products during the event. My treatment began with a cleanser to remove any traces of SPF, makeup and grime.
Then we used the Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel. This is a two step peel – the first being acidic (with a slight tingle) then the second step is a neutraliser (stops any tingle). The peel gave me instantly smoother looking skin! This is a product that Carrie Gross uses day and night every day. I think this would be a brilliant addition to my skincare routine as I have such dry and dull skin.
The next step in the treatment involved a blue face mask. Mixing the two parts of the Hyaluronic Marine mask activates it just before application. The mask has a slightly jelly texture and feels cooling on the skin as it firms up. After a few minutes, the mask removes easily by peeling it away.
The next step was to use an LED face mask. This device has several settings to either treat skin for acne (blue light), to boost collagen production (red light) or to do both simultaneously. I chose to do both so I had this pretty purple hue to my LED mask. The mask has straps to hold it in place usually but for the purposes of this demonstration, I held it in place. The LED face mask switches off automatically once the treatment time has lapsed.
The use of LED therapy for skin conditions has been a reserve of clinics until recently. LED face masks are now available for home use. Though I am sceptical that home devices can have the same power and impact that clinical grade devices have. I think I need to do a lot more research into this area before committing to a purchase. LED treatment works well when used consistently, which is why a home device is of interest to me. The collagen boosting effect is exactly what I want in my life!
After the LED face mask, it was time to complete the skincare routine. As I want radiance and plumpness, we opted for a combination of C + Collagen and Hyaluronic Marine products. I like the mix and match approach with the Dr Dennis Gross skincare rather than needing to committing to a whole regime dedicated to one product line to see benefits. This shows confidence that each product delivers results.
I really did see improvement in my skin by the end of the treatment. It looked smoother and plumper. I need to do some reading up to see which Dr Dennis Gross Skincare products I can insert into my skincare routine for ongoing results. I think the Alpha Beta peel is promising as it will help other products in my routine work better,
I enjoyed hearing from Carrie Gross at this event. Her passion for great skin and her knowledge of the products was really inspiring. I should give myself more time to research skincare ingredients thoroughly and understand the technology behind products as I find it really interesting.
Having learned so much about the Dr Dennis Gross Skincare range, I’m really excited for the launch of the dark spot correcting serum. I get post inflammation hyper pigmentation so anything that helps fade old blemish marks is interesting to me. I think clearer skin is my quest.
I love the Dr Dennis Gross philosophy that the skin can be healthy without experiencing harm. Effective products don’t have irritate skin if you get the formulation right. Or if the clever people can develop them that way. I trust the experts to do that bit for me.
