Product Line: Dr. DENESE NEW YORK

Nice to meet you Dr. Denese! I have to say, I was blown away with these three products. Advancements in skin care were ever present, which leads me to believe all of Dr. Denese’s products must be awesome!


Glow Younger Self Tanner: A Clear Self Tanner … with peptides? Yes. It feels like a serum going on, smooth and silky. The processing smell isn’t too bad at the end of the day, but it’s present. The color is realistic and gradual. As with all self tanners, be careful around your feet. For the first time, I used this self tanner on my face. It provided just a hint of color, which was perfect. The only drawback to it being clear is that you can’t see where you have applied the product — can be tricky if you are a newby to self tanners.

SPF 30 Defense Day Cream: The Day Cream rocks. I love that the tinted moisturizer contains zinc oxide … makes me all giddy inside knowing that I am multi-tasking in one product. The formula is matte, so it’s excellent for summer. Oily skin folks, you can probably use this all year long. It was a bit drying for me, so I had to mix in a moisturizer.

Firming Facial Light Resurfacing Peel: The Resurfacing Peel is amazing. Not only does it smell incredible (and I love the orange color), it provides lasting results. I have become a bit obsessed with this product … counting the days to the next application. It makes your skin super smooth, radiant and firm.
