The Best Dupe for the Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Peel
Summer is finally here! For oily skin girls like me though, it means more sweat, more skin buildups, and bigger pores. Many swear by the Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Peel Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel ($150/60 pads) to exfoliate and reduce uneven skin texture and pores. The AHA and BHA combo is one of its kind in the market and is extremely effective in transforming the skin to be as smooth baby's bottom. This also means many with sensitive skin would find it too intense to use. Not to mention the steep price tag for a daily peel (we think it actually works better as a weekly peel).
If you are looking for a more affordable and more gentle daily exfoliating peel, we think the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads ($36/60 pads) is a great dupe. It's formulated with glycolic acid and lactic acid for chemical exfoliation. It also has aloe vera, cucumber, and Indian gooseberry extract to tone and calm the skin. Each pad has a rough side and a smooth side, you can choose which side to use depends on the intensity of the exfoliation you want. Unlike Dr. Dennis Gross's, it's safe and gentle enough to use daily, even on sensitive skin. One tub for $36 can also last you 2 months even if you use it every day.
Exfoliation pads are must-haves for us at beauty dupes during summertime for glowy skin, get one that suits your needs!
