What i claims to do:

This exclusive formula combines the minerals of the Dead Sea with the benefits of microdermabrasion allowing you to get professional results without machines, discomfort or expensive office visits.

Visible results after one treatment: clarity and skin tone are renewed skin will look smoother and brighter enlarged pores will appear smaller surface blemishes and discolorations are smoothed away fine lines & wrinkles are gradually diminished make-up goes on effortlessly and looks flawless
This is definitely one of the quite abrasive scrubs - the "beads" are hard and kinda scratchy. Microdermabrasions are procedures where your skin's top layer is polished away. Does this do it? Well, of course this can't do it like a machine at the dermatologists office - this will only scratch your skin. I don't really like the idea of people doing harsh treatments of their skin at home - it can turn out pretty bad if you're not very sure about what you're doing
First off: I'm very pro exfoliation - I believe almost all people can benefit from it if they find the right product, BUT: I think everyone should know that if you do it wrong you can end up with breakouts from hurting the skin and letting bacteria get into it, ruin your skin by unbalancing it (it can change your skintype) and also: PIGMENTATION! If you hurt your skin enough, you can end up with a darker, pigmented look all over your face - the skin scars all over and become darker overall, not necessarily in patches. I promise you: it is not a good look! If you exfoliate the wrong way, you can also end up with your skin feeling rough and look dull.
This product is quite harsh: the beads are hard and not round. This can create tiny rips in your skin, doing exactly what I described over. It may be hard to believe if you've gone "exfoliating-crazy" (like I once was), but: less is often more & go to a dermatologist with more serious problems - don't try to fix them yourself - it may cause you bad skin for many months.
So to sum up: be careful with such abrasive treatments, and if you really want to do it, get a proper disinfectant and some lightening cream or something to avoid pigmentation after the treatment... Oh, and I don't like the layer of... something this leaves on the skin. And: this isn't directly drying, but your skin may dry out anyway because it takes so much off it. Use this only is your skin can handle really harsh treatments. If you want a real microdermabrasion at home, there are kits out there (only the vacuum ones are as good as those in the salons), but you should know what you're doing.
