Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Clinical Concentrate Hydration Booster Review

By Nishita P.

Greetings beautiful people,

I am a huge fan of skin care and I think one of the most important things for healthy skin is to keep it hydrated, no matter what skin type you have!! This post is going to be about Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Hydration Booster. Dr. Dennis Gross is a dermatologist based in New York City. He is a skin doctor for some of the celebrities in the fashion and beauty elite. After years and years of helping his clients achieve perfect skin, he decided to create his own line. These products are designed to help deliver same results at home and I am going to be reviewing a product from his line which has delivered great results on my dry skin.

$68 for 1oz/30 ml.

Product Description:
Replenish hydration with microdroplets of this weightless, greaseless serum containing hyaluronic acid, evening primrose oil, and coconut fruit juice to instantly hydrate and plump skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. NYC dermatologist, Dr. Dennis Gross, also included watermelon extract to protect against free radical damage from the environment.

My Experience with Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Clinical Concentrate Hydration Booster:

As we all know, rule #1 for healthy and hydrated skin is to drink a lot of that H2O 😛 I am going to be talking about the product which is going to help hydrate from the outside too.  Dr. Dennis Gross Hydration Booster has interesting mixture of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and collagen (my three favorites). Antioxidants help to fight the free radicals, scar treatment, repair sun damage and firms skin. Hyaluronic acid provides the hydration and collagen provide anti-aging and skin-healing benefits. During the winter months, my skin feels extremely dry and almost starts to peel slightly. Upon a lot of research, I came across the Hydration Booster Serum. The best part of the serum is that it can be used AM and/or PM or whenever the skin is in need of desperate hydration.

The serum comes in a dropper style bottle, which is perfect because the product has almost water kind of consistency, so helps with precise number of drops and in terms of hygiene too. I mix 3-4 drops of the serum with my daily moisturizer and apply it all over my face, neck and décolleté area. I could see the difference in my skin in just 2 days. My skin felt better and I could not see any peeling. My skin returned to normal mode. I used this for the whole winter and did not make my skin greasy or left any residue. I use the serum even during summer, except I don’t mix it with any moisturizer and apply it directly. If there are any dry patches on the face, I apply extra on the area.

OK.. Extra Tip: Add a few drops to your foundation, this will help the foundation go on smoothly and seal it to the skin. Your skin will thank you for the extra love 🙂

Yes, I would. This is a boon to all dry skin people! Again, the price might make you take a step back, but it also comes with the Dr Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Booster Kit (price $58) and also Dr Dennis Gross Hydration Heroes kit (price $58, limited edition).
