Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Daily Face Peel

I recently tried out Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel as part of my participation in the Bloom.com Ambassadors program. The face peel is a two step process, you wipe your face with the step 1 cloth until it feels dry, wait two minutes, and then repeat with the step 2 cloth. The peel is meant to firm skin, reduce pore size, reduce oiliness, and eliminate dullness. 
I was hesitant to try the peel, as I was afraid it would be harsh or irritating. I used the peel daily for 5 days, and while I experienced a little bit of tingling, it wasn't uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the peel delivered results on my skin that were quite the opposite of what was promised. I broke out terribly, with blemishes on my chin and forehead. I noticed that my skin was considerably oilier than usual, and my pores much larger. I was incredibly unhappy with this product- it really made my skin look terrible! 
My skin is usually quite normal, not oily or dry, and I haven't gotten bad breakouts since I was a teenager. The Daily Face peel really knocked my skin out of whack. Perhaps this would have better results on someone with a different skin type, but it unfortunately did not work for me. 
Do you ever do at-home face treatments like this? What were your results?
Thank you so much for reading! 
All the best, 
Jessica
