Questions & Answers for Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Glow Pad™ For Body With Active Vitamin D

On a scale of 1-10 how dark does this really get you?
1 being white, pale and 10 being you look like a different nationality when applied.

I'm just so sick of buying tanning stuff that everybody says is soooo dark and then when I put it on it's just a minor change. I am pitch white.

answer 1
For my skin tone (I'm light/olive skinned), this product was as dark as I had hoped, which did not make me look like a different person, but definitely took me from winter to deep summer tan. It was a close to a natural color as any of the 3 other products I've tried!

I would say it's a 3-4. Definitely not going to make you another ethnicity, but it is a noticeable difference. I am also pretty shockingly pale these days, but when I use this stuff, my husband starts talking about how nice and tan my skin looks - and he has no idea why :)

These are not going to give you a "Jersey Shore" tan. More like a 2 or 3 on a scale of 1-10.

answer 4
I'd say it's about a 6 in terms of color. I don't look like a different nationality, but it makes me look like I have a medium to dark tan for my fair skin tone.

After this product is dry, does it rub off/ transfer onto clothing?
Also will it come off if you go swimming in a pool?

No, not in my case. But I let it dry, then apply moisturizer and go to bed. Take a shower the next morning. It hasn't rubbed off on my sheets either though.

answer 2
I have never had it rub off on clothing. I have white sheets on my bed and the first time I used it I fully expected to see streaks on the bed (I'm a hot sleeper & tend to sweat at night- I know, gross!) but I had none and it has never come off on anything I have ever worn- which is a lot of white.

Hi Hoosiegirl18

Once the product dries, it should not transfer or rub off on clothing!

Has anyone experienced a reduction of stretch marks on breasts or thighs with use of this product?

This is a tanning product that just happens to incorporate exfoliation benefits, I think just by wiping the towel over the skin. I would definitely NOT recommend it to treat stretch marks because its main purpose is to deposit color (therefore would make them darker), not exfoliate them.

Is it possible to reduce or reverse the self-tanning color, which, in my case, is way too orange?

Lots of scrubbing with exfoliant and a loofah might lessen the effect -
it might end up looking uneven afterwards though...
probably best to let it fade gradually on it's own :)

Will it treat a vitamin D deficiency?
This is probably a question for the good Dr. Gross. I have been diagnosed as Vitamin D deficient now that I no longer spend time in the sun, tanning. Is the Vitamin D in this product enough to treat it, or help treat it? Is it enough to quit , or decrease, the supplements I am taking? Thanks!
