I'm Angela!

Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. Make sure to check back every Friday for a new style tip. Our goal is to help you go from, I have nothing to wear to having a closet packed with items you love that fit and flatter.

No, I’m not going to say something horrifying, like drink more water, or eat your body weight in fruit, or God forbid, go to the gym.

Nope! This one thing is something I actually do. And that is to use Dr. Gross’s Peel Pads every night.

Now, I’ve been using them for a while (maybe a year). And for some reason, never considered writing about these powerful peel pads. But then this month, two of my girlfriends both texted to ask me which exfoliation pads I used. Now, either because I raved about them so much or because the last time they saw me, I looked amazing. I’m not sure which, but I’m going with the second.

They had a few questions, so I thought I share my experience with the rest of my friends.

First Though, Why So Much Talk of Exfoliation?

I feel passionate about exfoliation. Mostly, because like drinking water and eating salad, it’s something we don’t do enough. And it’s strange because every single skin type can benefit from more.

For dry skin – contrary to popular belief, it does not dry your skin out. In fact, it helps all your treatments, serums, and moisturizers absorb into your skin and actually do their job.

For oily skin – it removes all the goo on the surface and helps cut down on breakouts, clogged pores, and rough texture.

Sounds great, right!

Why Dr. Gross?

A couple days before Christmas, I went back to yoga for the first time in six months. And the next day, I could barely walk. Every muscle required to sit, stand, walk, and talk ached like I was 100 years old. Yet, when I jumped on the scale, I hadn’t lost any weight, and when I looked in the mirror, my tight-as-a-rock abs were still hidden beneath a year’s worth of over-indulgence.

My rambling point is… instant gratification.

While apparently, it takes more than one hot yoga class to have a body like Kiera Knightly, one use of these peel pads and your skin immediately looks and feels better.

We don’t have enough instant gratification in our life to walk away from something that truly makes a difference overnight.

They Are Super-Duper Easy!

Most nights, I get home, collapse on the couch, and swipe the pads (they are two-step – step one, wait 3 minutes and then follow with the second pad) around my face while watching the latest Shark Tank marathon. No mirror or sink or waiting for a mask to dry. I hesitate to admit this, but most of the time, that’s my PM skincare routine. No moisturizer, no eye cream, just passing out after hearing Mr. Wonderful’s, ‘You’re dead to me.’

Good To Know:

A couple things I didn’t find out until months later…

You’re supposed to swipe your face with them until the pad dries out. Meaning it takes more than one pass. (This applies for both steps.) Oops. I’m mourning all those underutilized pads I tossed away.

Another side note, after I finished my first box, I decided to step up to the Extra Strength version. I have to be honest, I didn’t notice any difference between them and the original ones, so I went back.

So, that’s it! The one-step that’ll give you prettier skin right away. I know! Easy Peasy. And you won’t be running to the bathroom to pee every hour because of all the water you drank.
