I use the Oil of Olay Microdermabrasion kit (scrub+peel serum) and I love it! I have the same hyperpigmentation issues from acne scars and they have lightened up so much due to bi-weekly use of this kit.
Im wondering how this would work on already uuber sensative skin.. =^.^=
frankly, that sounds scary. that is the kind of thing that should only be handled by a pro. i can imagine some people going overboard and scouring their faces down.
I haven’t used anything like but my favorite exfoliator is an apriot scrub from CVS pharmacy. I had really bad acne, and after using this, my acne legit went away in a week. It’s also rough, and I remember hearing you say that you like rough exfoliators. You should try it!:)
I have read/watched reviews and I hear the apricot scrubs are TERRIBLE for your skin… you may not be able to see or feel a difference, but they have done tests and when magnified it literally tears up your skin… I always heard great things about the apricot scrubs here and there but I watched a video from smokeypinkleopard on youtube and her dermatologist strongly recommended against it! Just a little FYI :)
I’ve never tried a mircoderm product. I use something called P50 lotion by Biologique Recherche. It’s a liquid chemical exfoliant. I’ve also used DDF Acne Pumice Scrub, which I really loved in the summer, but my skin is too sensitive for these days. Do you recommend the Clarisonic?
It sounds like the IZOLAZ treatments that can run up to be over a thousand dollars! When you said the vacuum thing, because thats what it does too. So in comparison it is much cheaper. How do you clean this though? I see the machine has this little box type of thing, is there like a place where are the icky stuff from your face goes? Gross to picture in my head X-( But a good question!
I love getting a good microderm because I have rather large pores that get clogged easily. (Before I loved out of my parent’s house I would get them done for free at my dad’s place of work) But I most deff recommend going to a pro to get this done, because as she described in her post she applied a bit more pressure and went over areas twice and her skin became chapped and dry. That is most deff a no-no. I’m afraid people would go over board and scrub all the skin off their faces and have to get skin grafts x.x not cool.
If you have the extra cash, or know someone that will do it for free I recommend you go to a pro. If not be REALLY careful when using this, your skin is the biggest and most sensitive organ in/on your body. You don’t want to mess it up!!! x.x
Oops. I put ‘loved out of my parents house’ I meant ‘moved’ lol XD
