Dr. Dennis Gross has introduced a new anti-aging powerhouse that combines two of the best anti-aging skin care ingredients on the market: Ferulic Acid, a potent antioxidant and Retinol. Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution is the latest in cutting-edge skincare. Read on for more..
One of the first things I always do when I get a new skincare product is to read the ingredient list. When I saw the ingredients in Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution, I got excited. Up to this point, I’ve only seen Ferulic Acid (a powerful antioxidant especially effective for protecting skin from photodamage) in combination with Vitamin C. So I was intrigued when I saw the combination with Retinol. Was there a synergistic effect?
I posed the question (and a few others!) to Dr. Gross, who confirmed that, yes, there is a synergistic effect when Ferulic Acid and Retinol are combined. That means that the effect you get is greater in combination than using either compound alone.
I also asked what it was about this formula that allows you to use the product in the morning and at night, since retinol and other Vitamin A derivatives are typically applied at night. Dr. Gross replied that because of the “fast penetration in the delivery system and the conversion from the active form…that allows the product to not have any sun sensitivity and enables you to use it AM/PM”.
In terms of “bang for your buck” ingredients, the Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution has six different acids plus antioxidants. It’s a highly effective combination for a serum. I’ve been applying Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution twice daily for the past 4 weeks. In that entire time, I’ve experienced no irritation or any type of sensitivity. My skin isn’t dried out or itchy, as can sometimes be the case with retinols, probably due to the inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid, which helps to hold moisture in the skin. The best part? My skin looks and feels great.
Bottom line is that Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution is definitely a product that I would recommend in your anti-aging skincare regimen. You can find it at online at dgskincare.com, Sephora, Nordstrom.com and SkinCareRx.com, where the 1.0 oz. bottle retails at $85.
