Ferulic + Retinol Brightening Solution Review

Written by Deanna P


I am always super excited to try a Dr. Dennis Gross product.   A couple of weeks ago, I received his ferric acid + retinol brightening solution to review.  Right on the box it promises to firm, smooth, & tighten.  These are all things I can definitely use to happen to my face. For those of you who don’t know who Dr. Gross is I found out he is a well known NYC dermatologist who specializes in cosmetic dermatology.  After years of treating clients & an elite group of famous clients, Dr. Gross created a product line that everyone could use in the comfort of their own homes.   His research has been included in Medical journals.  He also is a Board member to the Skin Care Foundation & a collaborating member of the American Cancer Center as well as being involved in a host of other noble organizations.  He is a frequent guest on the Dr. Oz Show, The Today Show, The Doctors, CBS, The Early Show, & CNN.  His resume also includes being mentioned in every major magazine including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and The NY Times Magazine.  In summary, Dr Dennis Gross appears to be the Superman of Dermatology & his product line gets rave reviews.  The ferric acid came in 1 oz/30 mL & retailed for $110.00.   It can be used on almost all skin types which include normal, oily, combination, dry, & sensitive

Two of the main ingredients that are in the title of the product are the key to making this product work so well The first one Ferulic Acid.  This provides sun damage protection; plant-based antioxidant that enhances properties of other vitamins for healthy-looking skin.   The other one Retinol will help smooth visible wrinkles and lines while increasing moisture and elasticity. The third one licorice root extract will help Lighten and act as an anti-inflammatory. To use you can put it on in the am & pm.  Apply all over a clean dry face.  It is recommended that you put a moisturizer from Dr. Dennis’s line over it.As most of his products, this product also does not contain sulfates, parabens, & phthalates along with it being vegan & cruelty-free.  I have used this product for the last 2 weeks & it really comes through with what it promises.   My skin appears firmer, smoother & tighter.  I also thought it looked noticeably brighter.   The price tag on it is a lot & I think it is very expensive.  I do think it will be worth it if I can shave five years off my looks & do it without invasive surgery.    Surgery as we know can begin in the thousands, so the hundreds does not seem so bad if you can accomplish the same results.   

This would be a great product to try a sample of & then buy if it works on your skin.
