New York dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD has made waves in the skin-care industry. He’s formulated the number-two best-selling skin-care product on sephora.com—Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Extra Strength Peel ($88)—his products are sold in many stores around the world and his brand new Ferulic Retinol Anti-Aging Moisturizer ($75) is available for this week’s installment of BeautyPass’s Free Gift Friday.

This product claims to visibly improve the appearance of aging through a time-released hydration formula. On top of that, the brand’s patented ECG Cellular Complex, which stands for “Elastin Collagen Growth,” claims to strengthen the skin’s regenerative abilities and increase its natural moisture and elasticity.

Ferulic acid is the main ingredient in this product, and it’s known for enhancing the stability of other antioxidants in the formula. Also included is retinol, which gently regenerates the skin and increases cell turnover, eradicating acne, adding a plump appearance to the skin and giving an overall glow. To quiet any irritation, Dr. Gross also enhanced the formula with arnica flower extract, an antibacterial and antiseptic plant-powered ingredient that soothes inflammation.


The reviews of this product showcase its efficacy. On lovelyskin.com, one user writes, “Love this moisturizer. It has just the right amount of retinol that it doesn’t tingle. I have noticed a slight decrease in my crow’s feet over the last several weeks.” Another one raves, “I use this over my serum as a part of my regular nightly routine. Wake up with moist skin and I have seen an improvement in my smile and lip lines. One of my keepers.”
