What are the best Dr Dennis Gross skincare 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.

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

Best For The Eye Area: Dr Dennis Gross 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

Best For Anti-Aging: Dr Dennis Gross 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?

Best For Sun Protection: Dr Dennis Gross 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.

Best For Brightening Skin: Dr Dennis Gross 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, the serum 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.

Best For Hydrating Skin: Dr Dennis Gross 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.
