The Alpha Beta Body Peel is a new addition to the range at Dr. Dennis Gross (though a version of this existed YEEEEARS ago!) and I am so excited by it.
I love the Alpha Beta range, especially the facial peels- it’s how I first discovered the brand and they completely transformed my skin, combined with the fact that I tend not to test out as many new body products as I do for skincare, haircare and makeup this had my attention straight away.
It is effectively a larger towelette drenched in a body friendly exfoliating and hydrating solution thanks to the addition of squalane, glycerin and aloe leaf juice. And yes, that does mean it’s a one step body care routine- no need for a separate scrub or moisturiser. So technically… it’s saving me time and money, that more than justifies a repurchase, right?
It banishes dry skin, leaving behind the signature DDG glow, as well as treating breakouts, keratosis pilaris (also known as strawberry or chicken skin) and addresses any self tan mishaps. I can’t help but think how many brides would love a product like this in the run up to their wedding- it just takes tired skin and makes it look expensive.
How to use:
On freshly cleaned and dry skin, work the towelette in upwards motions across the body to exfoliate and hydrate simultaneously.
