I am a woman 53 years old with sensitive skin and was very excited to try another product by Dr. Dennis Gross. I already use the Triple C Firming Peptide oil ($ 62 in store) and Alpha Beta Peel ($ 88 in Store) Dr. Dennis Gross, thanks to the previous recommendations of Marta.
Pulling the Dr. Dennis Gross firming milk peptide ($ 65) out of the box, I noticed that you have a very unique delivery system. You twist the lid and the product leaves much like a syringe. It is milky and slightly sticky to the touch, but milk remains smooth and easy. I have incorporated in my diet, I use in the morning and evening.
The brand claims that you can feel an immediate difference in the first use. My skin felt tighter, but in my opinion not look noticeably different until it had been using continuously for two weeks. It was then that I realized also one of the lines on the forehead appeared to be less noticeable and my skin was very thin and soft glow. I was impressed!
It is also important to note that the formula does not irritate sensitive skin. Ingredients include tetrapeptide-21 anti-agers, amino acids, vitamin C and retinol. It is also packed with antioxidants like cucumber extract and coconut water. The ingredient is worrying is phenoxyethanol , which is a chemical used as a preservative instead of parabens. Studies have shown that it can be toxic in high concentrations. However, it is not clear if the amount used in skin care is harmful to humans. So that’s definitely something to consider before choosing this product.
Overall, I found it was not irritating, reduces some fine lines, brightened my complexion and firming over time. I was very pleased with the results and I’m happy to report that the peptide Firming Milk is a good addition to my anti-aging regime.
