Dr. Gross Ferulic Acid & Retinol Discovery Kit
I have been using Dr. Dennis Gross products for a little over a year now. I can honestly say they work & my skin looks & feels smoother, firmer & my complexion is better. I have a lot of redness/brown spots/ some freckles & my skin gets oily. I started with his alpha beta peels, then I started using the cleansing foam wash. I decided to buy the discovery kit of the retinol & moisturizer because I wanted to see if it would improve on my pores & oily skin. I noticed a difference the first time I used it. I'm hooked on his products. They can be a little pricy but worth it!!
I'll be 50 this year. European /Asian skin mix. I've been looking for a product for my eyes/lids and have used this for about 2 weeks. I love the immediate results I see when I put this around my eyes. They plump up and the dry, wrinkled skin is gone. I can't tell if my lines have reduced any, but will probably continue with the eye serum. I like the face serum and cream. Very nice feel to the face after use and the cream smell is pleasant, but again, can't tell if my lines have reduced. Overall I gave this a 5 because it provided the immediate results. I'm not sure any product will miraculously take all the wrinkles away. If there was, people wouldn't get plastic surgery.
love especially the moisturizer
I love the moisturizer it feels so light and smooth and my skin just absorbed it right away I felt so moisturized and it doesn't feel heavy at all it is super light. I have to buy the full size. As for other I think it has to be used for a while before seeing the effects. Gave five because of moisturizer
Not so good
I used this twice a day for a month. I did notice my skin looked alittle brighter but that's about it. I was really interested in the eye serum. It did nothing. I was very disappointed.
This product did not work for me. In addition one of the bottles in the kit arrived almost empty and could not be pumped. I returned the kit and complained to customer service. Had someone used it and returned it? Did the company package it in this condition? I'll never know b/c I won't purchase any more products with this doctor's label..
Great For The Price!
I purchased the Dr. Gross Ferulic Acid & Retinol Discovery Kit to try. As a Licensed Aesthetician I'm always on the search for new Dr.'s Board-Certified Dermatologists Surgeon's & their products, as I tend to refer clients to them! My 2 big disappointments are:
One is the fact that the products didn't have a seal on them for protection of contamination if the product would have been returned!
Second is the fact that the Pump for the Eye Serum didn't work at all. Didn't know if it was almost empty or not enough product in the bottle to pump it out. I do like the product so far but as a professional I do know that a small kit doesn't really give you the opportunity to actually tell you if the product works or not! Must be used longer for some results to appear!
Waste of Time
I don't like that there is not a "safety" seal on any of these products. How do I know its not a return item when there is product on the outside of the bottles and the pump for the eye serum either doesn't work or the vaseline like product is so low an amount that it cannot pump it out. Very disappointed, cannot say if it does or doesn't work. I also purchased the beta peel set with the same items except no serum which had seals on them. It is more expensive but I feel a much better value than one that isnt full and wont come out.....
Excellent Combo Reordering Another Set..!
42yrs Old. Light to Med skin. Start of minimal discoloration & premenopausal symptoms.
AMAZING results off the bat, first night. I had it with the changes in my skin. I started a new regimen the same day I started this line (courtesy of QVC!). Cleanser "Purity" by Philosophy utilizing my Clarisonic Mia 2. Unreal deep pore, exfoliating results. Followed by the Ferulic + Retinol line. Since I started doing this every day/night my skin looks AMAZING.. Trust me I am a researcher, i try everything and I'm so happy I was watching QVC that day. My new skincare approach completely changed the condition of my skin. My Makeup is smoother, even, doesn't cake. The retinol in these products is INVALUABLE. Dr. Gross hit a home run with this line & this combo. I wish it was a bit larger although you don't need a lot. Regardless, I'm REORDERING this set before it goes. THANK YOU
Love this product. I waited a few weeks till I wrote the review so I could see the minimization of fine lines. My skin looks amazing! I just wish the size was bigger. Very small amount in this kit so use sparingly.
Good for Traveling
It's got the Vit C component which you want in the morning and the retinol which you want in the evening in one bottle. Very convenient and he claims his retinol isn't de-activated by the sun. It inly lasted a week. I think I saw some brightening. The eye serum was enough to hold the results of my usual product so I guess it's OK. The moisturizer did its job. All you need to carry is SPF. I couldn't see any changes in a week.
I got the TAV with the alpha beta peel pads. Just out of curiosity, I wanted to se the difference in single products. I used those pads in the morning and just my usual antioxidant and SPF after. My skin glowed at night when I washed my face. So those pads are magic. I'll see with the TAV kit and more time with the serum if I get results.
Meantime this is the smallest and most complete travel kit. But it'll last only a week.
The eye serum does not measure up.
I love these ferulic acid and retinol products Dr.Gross came out with, however,the newer eye serum just doesn't measure up to his other products in getting positive results.
Happy I tried these small sizes before making a bigger purchase ...still $50 isn't cheap., products did nothing for my skin ...absolutely nothing and I used as directed, the serum had a funky smell to me. I realize not every product will work the same on everyone, that being said this did nothing for me ..I had every intention on sending back but those 30 days came and went ... lesson learned .
