Alpha-Beta Peel Pads - Original Formula

$ 88

"These peel pads exfoliate effectively without being too harsh on the skin. Exfoliating 1-2 times a week is essential for keeping skin glowing and bright!"

Dr. Dennis Gross’ original iconic, renewing peel, an easy and safe for at-home use version of peels he uses for patients at his NYC practice. Step 1 is packed with rejuvenating, powerful yet gentle, exfoliating acids, and step 2 controls the alpha hydroxy acid activity and delivers anti-aging actives, helping to nourish skin, keeping it balanced, smooth, and radiant. This universal formula contains a combination of five acids, ideal for first-time peel users and those of all skin types.

Size: 30 packets

How to Use

Apply step 1 pad to clean, dry skin, using circular motions. Wait one minutes on first use and work your way up to 2 minutes or more. Follow with pad in step 2 using the same technique as step 1. Do not rinse after either step or use products containing alcohol. Use 1-2 times a week after cleansing before your moisturizer.  Do not use retinol or any other AHA products on the same night. Avoid contact with eyes. Make sure to use sunscreen daily to help prevent photo-aging. 

For people with sensitive skin, Shani recommends using them less frequently and only at night so you can sleep through any initial irritation. Not tested on animals.

Key Ingredients

Alpha & Beta Hydroxy Acids:

Exfoliating acids that weaken the connection between dead skin cells, speeding up the normal shedding process, improving skin texture and unclogging pores


Potent antioxidant and antiaging polyphenol that helps protect from free-radical damage


I recommend only using this peel 1-2 nights per week depending on your skin type to avoid over-drying the skin, especially when combined with other active products.
