The Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment is a tone step towel, which is different to the facial versions as they’re two step towelettes. I was also very surprised by the price of the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment, as they’re $58 for eight one use towels. Yes, really.
The claims sound amazing, and the before and after photos look very impressive, but skin conditions like keratosis pilaris don’t just go away once you’ve used a one use towel. It’s a skin condition which requires constant exfoliation and treatments, so the thought of these towels being $58 for just eight uses, is crazy.
Especially as whenever you use a facial acid pad on the body, it dries up insanely fast, so I can’t imagine one of these towels remaining wet enough to be able to treat multiple parts of the body. I think it would have been better to see Dr Dennis Gross launch a liquid version, so people can apply it themselves to their problem areas as an ongoing treatment plan.
I just could never justify paying $7.25 for a single use acid soaked wipe which I’d need to use every week as a minimum to keep keratosis pilaris at bay.
