this stuff is great! i use it every night after cleansing and it makes my skin sooooo smooth. it is not too harsh to use every night, which i really like. i broke out a little after i started using it but i figure it was old dirt trying to get out - this stuff only gets better with each use!!
My skin has never looked better. I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and my pores have diminished, by skin looks mega clean, i have no spots and I even look younger (in fact I got asked for ID the other day when buying alcohol - I'm 27!). It doesnt heat up a great deal although the more you put on the more it heats. But who cares when the results are this good. At £8 its a bit more expensive than your usual Olay but again, so worth it, and can normally be found on special offer.
Like another reviewer, I've even stopped wearing foundation / tinted moisturiser in the day.
- This is not for removing make up - I use this in the morning and a make up removing wash or cleanser in the evening. Only once a day usage is recommended.
I've been using this product for about a week now and I have noticed that my skin does feel smoother the more I use it. Of course, I noticed results right after the first use but even after subsequent washes, i felt that my face became smoother and smoother after each wash.
Although, I do not think that what it says in the instructions is true. I tried to re-wet my face, but the thing just doesn't heat up again. The initial heat though is really good but I would've liked more heat (just like what it says in the back).
Overall, I would recommend this product. I have yet to see what effect it has on my blackheads! I'll keep you guys posted :)
This made me break out HORRIBLY. I have very acne prone skin and hoped this would calm that down a bit, but instead it did the exact opposite and made me break out ten times worse. The only reason I gave this a 2 instead of a 1 was because it really did make my skintone very even and take away some of the redness on my face. If only it didn't break me out because it would have been great.
Love it! Makes my skin feel super smooth & gets rid of all the dull skin without being too harsh. I notice a big difference quickly. Like the smell too. continued >>
This stuff makes my skin feel super smooth and gets rid of a lot of the dry flaky skin. It does feel a lot like the Biore self heating mask, but I like this better. I use it in the shower after cleansing. I will buy this again. The packaging feels crinkly wierd, kind of like a toothpaste tube with liquid in it, but it is effective.
This scrub is surprisingly gentle and pleasant to use. It's also less drying than other glycolic acid products I've used. I really think you might be able to use this every day, but I've only been using it once every couple of days.
I don't notice the scent very much. I sort of wonder whether the warming sensation actually does something or is just for entertainment because it doesn't last long, but I find this product to be effective at exfoliating.
I like it that it isn't a face cleanser, it is a treatment that you use after your cleanser. That way, it isn't mixed in with unnecessary detergent ingredients, which can be very drying. I also like it that it isn't a mask, because they can be hard to wash off once they dry.
I think I prefer this to the Olay Microderm and Peel, because it's cheaper and less messy. If you want heavy duty exfoliation, then the Microderm and Peel is definitely stronger, but I think it's a little too strong for me, whereas this has a more gentle effect over time. They both came out around the same time last year, and I remember I didn't know which one to try, but I eventually wound up getting both. I actually recommend trying both of them to see which one suits you better, because they are both quality products.
UPDATE: There is one thing I don't like about this and that is the packaging. It's pretty on the outside, but once you get about halfway through the tube, it starts to get really difficult to get the product out. When I can't get any more out, I cut it open and scoop it out into a jar. I have found there's a lot left in there that would be wasted otherwise. I wish they'd improve the packaging. continued >>
Wow, I am insulted by the bad reviews here. I saw a friend of mine who is an esthician and she told me that I had a lot of small white heads and that I have to go for a full treatment (which would cost about $700) to get my skin cleaned. That said, I looked at the mirror and she was right, I had many of them. I went to the first drugstore and saw this product along with the trio pack that includes the serum, enhancing lotion and perfecting lotion. Voila, the problem is solved. My skin is so clean that I skip applying foundation. Yeah, that good.
I generally love Olay products but I don't know about this one. It did nice things for my face but I think daily exfoliation does the same thing. It did dry my face and hands some. Plus the thing I hated and the reason I stopped using it is that it was ruining my nail polish! It took a few days and then I realized that right after I used it my polish was white looking in places and peeling in others. So I won't be using this on a daily basis because I don't want to re-do my nails on a daily basis. I'll use the rest when my nails aren't done but I won't repurchase.
Love this! Day # 4 of using this. Love the warming sensation and gentle exfoliating microbeads. My pores appear diminished and my skin looks radiant. Can't ask for more! I will definitely repurchase.
