I wanted to like this kit...However, now my skin is oily after using it 2x a week for a period of 4 weeks.
I've used this product maybe 3 times and I'm really liking it so far. Really seems to smooth my skin and remove buildup. I'm acne prone and this has not broken me out, and it even seems to help with red marks left from recent breakout, which is great and not something I was expecting. I do have an issue with the price, it's $32 in Canada at Walmart, which seems ridiculous after you actually get the product out of it's ridiculously large packaging. It's just 2 little things of product. But we will see how long it lasts. I think the crystals and the serum are definitely out of proportion - I'm sure I will run out of serum before running out of the crystals - BUT I think the crystals can still be used effectively as a scrub on it's own. So all in all - LOVE the product, hate the packaging/value for your money.
The BEST microdermabrasion I've tried yet. Nothing beats this and the price is not too expensive either. I've tried other high end microdermabrasion kits and nothing works as good as this one. Even my facialist compliments my skin each time she sees me! I use this once a week and it makes my skin SUPER smooth, I can't stop touching it!! Brightens my skin and my pores looks smaller and smaller each time I use it. I'm on my 2nd kit and will continue using it forever and ever! Another added plus? Absolutely helped A LOT with acne, no more zits for me, only a tiny pimple sometimes, even during my period!!
Mmmmm. Smells heavenly. Like tangerines. This is a nice little product. Definitely not as effective as a professional microdermabrasion treatment, but I suppose that goes without saying. Love the way the activator makes the scrub foam up... feels great. This product makes my greasy, zit-prone skin smooth and squeaky clean. I use it as a treat on the weekends. Have repurchased twice so far.
For home microderm kits I've tried this one, Loreal's ReFinish, Physician's Formula for sensitive skin, and this one is definitely my favourite. It does give you a bit of a glow and make your skin softer and smoother. It also seems to increase the effects of other products you might use. I'm using it in conjunction with (alternating) Avene Diacneal or Neutrogena acne mark fade mask at night, and Avalon organics Vit C serum during the day, and my skin has been far clearer with scars from acne fading much more quickly than usual. I really think it's some kind of synergy between all the products, because when I only use 1, the effect is non-existent. Anyway, I've been able to go off birth control, which I used to control my skin, and it's better than ever! The one thing you might notice is that freckles seem a bit more prominent, even with using excellent sunscreen. Not sure if this effect will diminishes with time as it has with the acne marks.
UPDATE: I don't think this product was ideal for my skin after all. It's irritating and a little drying for sensitive types. Taking off a lippie.
I used this once and honestly - rubbing my face with comet would've felt better. the scrub is not very emollient and therfore feels like sand. When I added the serum or whatever it is . . . it felt worse. And it didn't exfoliate any better than a regular scrub.
This product is great. It makes my skin so smooth and gives it a natural pink glow. Try it, you will not tbe dissapointed!
I really like this product. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and softens lines temporarily. I uses it about once a week and it gets rid of flakiness and dull skin. I will buy it again for sure.
Terrific product. However, I should mention that when I use the system, I take longer than the recommended time AND I use it every other day to see the best results (package says max. 2x per week). Using every other day (I don't have sensitive skin at all), my skin was glowing, fresh, and radiant within 3-4 uses. The results lasted for several days after the treatment. I actually used it right before my wedding and I was very impressed.
This product does not do anything. I used it for a month and the only thing i can say is it made my face soft right after use...but that is it! the packaging is very inconvenient because you have to apply the scrubby paste first and then before rinsing you are supposed to apply the peel serum...but you have to squeeze the bottle with your paste covered hands (you are supposed to apply and keep dry)...it doesnt seem to hygenic and then you have to wash the bottle after you use it. anyway...it was a waste of $30 and I don't recommend it.
