Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster Review

Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster

I started using Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster recently soon after it launched earlier in the New Year.

I have drier, duller skin in the Winter (it isn’t nearly as bad in the Summer thankfully) so I’m always looking for quick fixes to lighten up the dullness as well as products that will provide moisture as keeping my skin hydrate seems to keep dullness at bay.

Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster originally came in a trio set but I decided to purchase the full size when it became available recently.

Let’s take a look!

I’ll be honest I’m a Philosophy Miracle Worker Skincare girl but recently I started using more and more of Dr Gross’s Skincare Collection and one of the only products that disappointed me in his line is the Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster.

This has gotten some raving reviews but I honestly didn’t see any visible changes in my skin to rave it as much.

Apparently this is a time released serum which visibly gives skin the appearance of radiant and youth with a refreshing finish.

It contains three types of acids to resurface and firm skin. It can be mixed with makeup, a moisturizer or applied all its own. I didn’t bother adding it to my moisturizer or foundation and merely applied it daily from the bottle. It has a dropper for application so you can drop a small amount into your hands and apply it directly to skin in the AM and PM prior to any other products. It’s a thicker consistency with a quick to absorb formula that has a subtle fresh floral scent.

I actually have a few drops yet so I’m almost done with the 1 oz bottle at this point. I can’t say I seen any visible improvement in my skin. I expected it to work as a gentle leave on exfoliating serum but I still have drier cheeks. I also expected my skin to look brighter with my dullness eased a bit but my dullness remains. This formula doesn’t hydrated nor does it dry skin out.

Unfortunately I can’t see myself repurchasing Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster because I simply did not see the visible results it promised. At $68 I’d recommend purchasing Dr Gross’s Alpha Beta Peel Pads as at least those not only exfoliate skin but also reveal brighter, smoother skin!

Anyone try it?

Do share your thoughts!

I purchased this item.

    I bought the trio set but haven’t really used them enough to form an impression. Well, beyond how much I like the colored bottles 🙂

    I’m one of the ones who’ve raved about this. I got a deluxe sample and was lucky enough to notice a brightening effect within about a week. I’ve been using this ever since. I also just use it “straight up” rather than mixing it with anything.
