Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil {Review & Giveaway - 3 winners!}

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, brittney house, Adele and won!}

I vaguely remember applying sunscreen when I was a child. I'm pretty sure that it was part of our outdoor routine when we were heading to the pool or the lake... and possibly a few other all-day outings. Looking back it seems that, along with car seats, sunscreen just wasn't a safety big thing to worry about.

Things have changed just a little bit, haven't they?

While it is obviously much safer and healthier to avoid too many of the sun's rays and put on sunscreen daily, there are also downfalls to being overly protected. Dr. Dennis Gross, renowned practicing dermatologist and board certified dermatological surgeon, observed the majority of his patients were experiencing Vitamin D deficiencies because they were overtly careful about exposing themselves to UV rays and using high levels of sunscreen.

It seems like you just can't win, right?

Actually, thanks to Dr. Gross himself, you can. His innovative and advanced Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil makes it possible to reap the benefits of the sun's Vitamin D while keeping your skin (and health) protected from the harmful rays.

Active Vitamin D Serum OilWith Vitamin D deficiency on the rise, Dr. Dennis Gross' Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil is the first-ever product to include active Vitamin D to help with symptoms of deficiency. As a large added bonus, Vitamin D also has cosmetic benefits such as skin hydration, skin radiance, anti-aging, and helps hyperpigmentation.

However, in order for the body to synthesize Vitamin D, it must be converted from UVB sun exposure or through supplementation/diet. Therefore, this product is truly the first and only skincare serum-oil that provides sufficient levels of Vitamin D to skin through topical application. In short, your skin receives all the sun's "good" without any of the "bad!"

Although I'm no doctor or scientist, I was looking forward to seeing for myself just what Dr. Gross and his bottled Vitamin D could do for my skin.

Active Vitamin D Serum Oil reviewAlthough the 1-ounce bottle initially intimidated me (making me think that it would run out immediately), seeing that the directions indicated that you only apply a few drops in the morning and/or evening cleared up that thought.

Opening it up and using the dropper to apply 2-3 drops to my face and neck, I then started to wonder what the oily serum would do to my complexion. How could this not cause breakouts?

Dr. Dennis Gross Active Vitamin D Serum Oil reviewAgain proven wrong by this golden liquid, I found that the Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil absorbed quickly and made my skin feel hydrated and soft. The description claimed that it would reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing radiance and luminosity and, after having used this now for a few weeks, I have to agree!

There is no need for any sort of moisturizer with this oil, as it has continued to alleviate areas of dryness and I truly have felt as though my skin has felt healthy without being greasy. Although I am not enough of an expert to say for sure that Dr. Gross has helped reverse past damage, boosted elasticity, or corrected the appearance of hyperpigmentation, I do believe that this serum has had a positive effect on my skin... and that's what matters!

The only issue that I have had since I began using this product is that the glass bottle has had me worried to travel with it and any possible breakage. However, it has since been packed and unpacked a few times and has thankfully had no problems, so I have plans Active Vitamin D Serum Oilto continue to use and bring this serum-oil with me wherever I go — this is by far my new favorite product!

If the idea of receiving the nourishing benefits of Vitamin D without the harmful effects of sun exposure sounds like something that your skin could use, the Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil from Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare just might be exactly what you're looking for.

Great for all ages and skin types, this innovative and one-of-a-kind product retails for $65 (on their website as well as on Amazon), which may seem high at first, but I do believe that the one bottle will last for an incredibly long time.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, three people are going to get to try out this amazing product and see how much it benefits their skin as well, because...

Three lucky people will win a bottle of Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil!
