I got this treatment in hopes that it would help fade my acne scars.. Sadly, it didn't:( Well, it did just a little but nothing drastic. But what I loved about this was how soft my face felt after I used it! I love the smell, too! It is so gentle that I used it about 3 times a week (at night). I will re-buy because I love how it makes my face soft. Hopefully, the more I use it, it will help fade my scars;)
Olay's comes with 2 items: an exfoliator scrub and a gel activator. The scrub comes in a sealed jar and it smells like juicy Tang orange drink. The scrub has tendency to settle so if you left it standing for awhile, you need to give it a stir. The gel activator is clear gel packaged in flip top bottle; this one has no scent at all. I usually do a very gentle scrub for 1-minute, followed by application of the gel activator, which feels warm (but not as hot as say, Biore Warming Mask) and makes the scrub turns into little foams. Then I massage gently for another minute and finally rinse it out. Even with sensitive skin, I can safely do this procedure every other day and that makes my skin very fresh and glowy looking. I think when it comes to exfoliation, frequency is better than potency of the chemical.
I think the scrub could have been formulated better so that the scrub does not settle down, eliminating the need to stir it prior to using. I also find the jar packaging a bit less hygienic; I think I would have prefer a squeeze tube. 1 lippie deduction for packaging.
Prior to this, I have tried Roc Resurfacing Facial Peel and Neutrogena Advanced Solutions Facial Peel. I like Olay's the best as it is the most suitable for sensitive skin of all the 3 I tried. Both of these usually left me red and irritated even when I followed the instruction closely. I will continue to buy Olay's unless if I find a better one out there.
So i wanted a peel and this came with that and a microdermabrasion scrub, so i got it. The scrub doesn't really get my skin so soft, I've used better ones. And then you have to apply the peel that weirdly foams up. I was expecting my skin to be nice and soft but it didn't do anything amazing for me. And i also think it may have made me break out. Not a lot, but always the next day after using it i would have a brand new pimple.
LOVE the way this makes my face feel when Im done. When you put the serum on over the crystals, my skin actually tingles so much that I freaked out the first time I used it. Now, I just dont massage it for the full 1 to 2 min ... My skin is really smooth after I use this.. Not sure if I will buy again cause its on the pricey side, but I do notice an improvement on my skin after I use it.
I LOve this and will buy it again. It makes my skin soft but I don't think it really got rid of my past acne scars which I thought it was supposed to do. Even if it didn't im impressed in the way my skin feels after using it. I'll recommend that you no scrub too hard if you have sensitive skin.
This works really well. I try to use it about once a week and my skin is looking better than ever. My skin is already really clear but it tends to look pretty dull because it gets dry. This peel changes all that. My skin looks soft, smooth, and glowing after I use it and my moisturizer sinks in much better. Plus it smells amazing. You can get a pack of 2 at Sam's for cheaper.
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.
