What are the best Dr Dennis Gross products?

I have a soft spot for this brand. They use stuff like vitamin C and retinol that really helps keep those pesky wrinkles off your face.

But… everything costs an arm and a leg, doesn’t it? I don’t mind too much IF it works but every skincare brand has its duds. You don’t want to splurge on those.

So what’s worth the splurge then? Here are the best Dr Dennis Gross products for every skin type and need:

Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum ($65.00)

I don’t use a separate product for the eye area, but if I did, I’d go with Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Serum. It contains everything you need to keep crow’s feet off your face. Retinol boosts collagen production to firm skin, while ferulic acid, quercetin and other antioxidants keep new wrinkles from forming in the first place. Plus, it has arbutin and licorice extract to lighten dark spots due to hyperpigmentation and too much sun exposure. The texture’s lightweight and works well under makeup.

Available at: Cult Beauty, Dermstore, Net-A-Porter, Nordstrom and Sephora

Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution ($88.00)

Sensing  a theme here? I can’t help it. Ferulic acid and retinol are two of the best antiaging ingredients out there so any product that uses both gets a thumbs up from me. Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution is no exception. Ferulic acid destroys 3 types of free radicals while retinol boosts collagen, speeds up the skin’s natural exfoliating process and… it fights free radicals too. Bye bye, wrinkles! But the serum doesn’t stop here. It also has licorice, arubutin, and mulberry to lighten discolorations and brighten skin. What more can you ask for?

Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($42.00)

Dr Dennis Gross Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a mineral sunscreen for normal and dry skin. It’s quite easy to blend but it can leave a white cast on darker skin tones. If you’re willing to give it a go, you’ll like the formula. It provides excellent protection from all UV rays, is loaded with natural oils that keep your skin moisturised for hours and has its fair share of antioxidants to prevent wrinkles too. The only downside? It has a couple of citrus extracts that could irritate sensitive skin, but for most skin types, they’re not a problem.

C+ Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum ($78.00)

Dr Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum contains 3 forms of vitamin C, including the pure and most effective type Ascorbic Acid and the deepest-penetrating type Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. They fight free radicals, boost collagen and brighten the skintone. Plus, it has a huge dollop of niacinamide, a multitasking superstar that hydrates skin, fights wrinkles, soothes irritations, fades away dark spots and even helps with acne. It’s true it has alcohol too, but you can counteract its drying effects by following up with moisturizer.

Hydration Super Serum Clinical Concentrate Booster ($68.00)

You know how products for dry skin tend to be thick and greasy? Dr Dennis Gross Hydration Super Serum Clinical Concentrate Booster isn’t but it still packs a hydrating punch. Its secret? It’s low in oils and high in humectants, like sodium hyaluronate, that can attract and bind water to the skin. Plus, ceramides to repair the skin’s protective barrier so it doesn’t get dry again. The best part? Antioxidants and retinol to fight wrinkles. The only problem is the packaging. It’s almost transparent, so you need to keep it away from light or it will spoil. A dark drawer will do fine.

I’ve thought of a decent solution to the jar problem!;) Put it in the fridge after opening and only take it out when you’re going to put some of the product on. 🙂

Hannah, that would help indeed. Goof thinking there! But I still wish all cosmetics came in tubes. Would make life so much easier.

Totally agree. Life throws us us enough lemons so why can the cosmetics companies make life easier for us by putting things in more appropriate containers? LOL!

I’ve thought of another thing. You could probably buy an airtight vacuum sealing packaging machine. You know? The ones meant for food. Every time then you’re done using your product, you could throw the container in a bag, have the machine suck the air out and seal it,and then for extra security you can pop it into the fridge to preserve ingredients, shelf life and slow down bacteria growth. 🙂 You know to keep germs out of your creams each time you use them, you could get a clean spoon to get product out. 😉

Hannah, because consumers love jars. Very few know how bad they are, but we all think they’re pretty. *sighs*

Those are all great ideas. But they make using the product an inconvenience, so most people won’t really bother. We humans can be very lazy ahem…

Well.. you could probably take the product of the jar and could put it into an empty container from a product you’ve run out of.

That’s a great idea. 🙂
