Beauty VIP of the Week: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads

According to my favorite Chicago weather guru Tom Skilling, this April is shaping up to be the least sunny on record. To say I need Vitamin D badly is an understatement. To help ease the pain of sun deprivation is Dr. Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Glow Pad, a.k.a. the eighth wonder of the world (or perhaps more realistically, this week’s Beauty VIP).

This is not just a self-tanning towelette, but rather an anti-aging exfoliating self-tanner with active Vitamin D. In just one Glow Pad, the Vitamin D, microencapsulated DHA and soy proteins deliver color deep into your skin and alpha & beta hydroxy acids exfoliate, tighten pores, eliminate blackheads and help even out your skin tone. It’s also completely odorless and streak-free. In short, you want in on these.

I don’t tan my face naturally, and often times it’s because many self-tanners just aren’t right for the face. The Alpha Beta Glow Pads are designed for your face and provides the most natural-looking radiance. I use these and find myself needing less face makeup – which sounds perfect for the summer I’m hoping shows up at some point.

My only complaint is that these aren’t available in body versions. Although, I think our good friends at Dr. Dennis Gross are on it…

You can get 20 applications of your Alpha Beta Glow on for $32. This wonder product is available at Sephora, but I purchased mine from Dr. Dennis Gross website where I also received some good samples at checkout.
