I have just used it for the first time, but I am already very happy. I just keep touching my face (bad, i Know!) because it feels so smooth. I always have trouble with clogged pores and rough skin on my nose, but now my skin texture is very smooth. I know I won't see a reduction in fine lines after one use, but I hope with continued use these will fade some as well, we will see. I followed the directions exactly since it was the first time, but since I really didn't feel any warming (and definetly no burning), I think I will leave it on for a little bit longer the next time. One thing I was surprised about is that so many of the reviews complimented the citrus scent, but I think it stinks!
Two weeks ago I finished off the I-Skin home microdermabrasion and I was going to purchase the refill at Ulta. I was also kinda shopping around when I one of the SA stopped to find out if I needed help and we got to the subject of microdermabrasion and she mentioned that it always good to take a break from these about 2 to 3 weeks. So, I decided to forgo the purchase. While I was rearranging the cabinet under my bathroom sink, I came across this kit. I remember that this was the first home microdermabrasion I had purchased and used it for two weeks. I had great results but I later found I-Skin.
Anyway, I'm back on this kit this week and I have to say for the money it's matches the results I achieved with i-skin. This kit was about $13 less. My face needs the home microdermasion to resurface texture and activate surface cell renewal. The older I get the more help I need in getting rid of dead cells on a regular basis. I don't think that I could see myself spending money for a professional salon to do the microdermabrasion and have heard horror stories. The home one is just fine by me. Between this and my normal skin care regiment, I'm very happy withe result. After this runs out, I may check out other ones but I know that this is good if the ones I try later will not work. This will be my go-to product.
I've been using this on and off for almost a year. Sometimes I'll use it once or twice a week, sometimes I'll forget and use it once every three weeks. I've had this for almost a year and I still have 1/4 of the product remanining, even though the box says it should only last about 2 months. A little goes a long way.
First off, I looooove the heavenly orange smell. It makes me happy using it. This scrub is amazing - you can tell it has a lot of scrubbing beads in it, and it's very thick and coarse, yet it feels gentle on the skin (make sure your skin is damp/wet before you use it though). I don't know how to describe it, but when you use it, you feel like you've never truly used an exfloliant before this one because it's that good. The peel comes in a small bottle, and I thought it wouldn't last long, but I have around half the bottle left. Once again, you only need to use a little bit. It burns a tiny bit if I use too much, but other than that, I have no complaints. It doesn't have an offense smell or anything.
I immediately notice that my skin is baby smooth right after using this and it seems a bit softer and brighter, but I could be imagining it. My skin absorbs creams better as well. However, I don't really notice anything different about my skin the next day or in the long run - my scars don't disappear faster, my skin doesn't glow more, my pores aren't smaller, etc. However, I will continue to use it just for the effects of normal exfoliation because this really is a very good scrub.
My skin feels soft and radiant after I use this product. You will notice the difference immediately-deep cleanses and removes buildup. I have been using it for over a year. It helps reduce breakouts and evens out my skin.
How much do I love this product? Lots. This is my favorite skin treatment. This product leaves my smooth and radiant. And, the effect lasts for days. I typically do the scrub/peel once a week. I just can't be without this product. Wish it were a little bit cheaper, but, oh well.
My skin felt very smooth after using this product, but unfortunately I get several big painful cystic acne the next day which took forever to get rid of.
I heard about how great this product was, so I decided to give it a try. I've had problems with acne for most of my life and the scars on my face show it. My face was already clearing up with another product that i was using, so I thought that by using this product, it would help my face more. Instead, my face started breaking out in cysts and they've been hard to get rid of. I haven't used the product in two weeks and now my face is finally starting to clear up. I guess this product isn't meant for everyone. Wish I had read the other reviews of how it made other ppl break out.
Well, I learned my lesson... if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I'm still haven't really made my mind up about this product since I've only been using it for about 3 weeks...
I've always had acne prone skin no matter what face wash, moisturizer, or pill I take - I've taken and used just about everything besides accutane and nothing really works. That being said, I have a lot of scars especially as of recently I've had deep cystic acne... the kind that stays on your face as big redish purplish bumps for weeks at a time and never surfaces and then just turns into a dark purple scar.
I was hoping this would fade some of those scars. So far, haven't seen any results, if anything, I think I might be breaking out worse than before. Now I'm getting breakouts all over my cheeks...
The first step kind of hurts, it's very rough and I felt as though there isn't enough of the peel activating serem... you have to use a lot of it to make the crystals dissolve/foam. It smells great and your skin feels amazingly soft and fresh when you're done. I've been using twice a week for almost a month now and not many results other than that for me. So not quite sure if it's worth the $25 I spend on it yet.
Love this. My skin is so soft and radiant after using it. I feel it really helps with my hyperpigmentation. Great product for the price you pay.
Awesome stuff for $22. I started using this to lighten the acne marks. I have had acne for last 15 years and some of the marks go back as long as 5-10 years. They have become a part of my face. I tried L'Oreal microdermabrasion kit, and thought it made my face smoother, it did not help the marks.
I spent $50 on the Murad post-acne treatment and it did not help. I tried the alpha hyrox stuff, and it gave me bumps. I got a Rx strength Retinol and that did not make much difference.
But this stuff is magic. I have used it only twice so far and am seeing noticeable difference in those old acne marks. I am so happy I could just hug the box rigt now :)
