Scrubs away dullness, spots, fine lines and all your skin worries!
Let’s start with the basics.
What the heck is micro-dermabrasion?
It’s a modern-day face scrub that made up of teeny tiny (micro) crystals that are as fine as grains of sand. These super tiny micro crystals literally lodge themselves into your skin to gently and evenly peel off the rough, dull and damaged layer of skin to reveal healthy, glowing, fairer skin that’s underneath.
Why should you be doing it?
Microdermabrasion improves the overall quality of your skin because it:
- Removes dullness
- Unclogs pores
- Fades old marks and spots
- Reduces pigmentation
- Evens out your skin tone
- Shrinks the size of your pores
- Reduces fine lines
Up until a few years ago, you needed to go to a professional to get microdermabrasion done. But now, you can do it all by yourself – in the comfort of your own bathroom. And it takes no more than 1 minute!
What makes Kiehl’s Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion so special?
It bought this product simply because I ran out of my regular face scrub. I was in the store figuring out which one to by when I spotted this product. I tried it on the back on my hand and fell in love almost instantly.
I couldn’t get over how gentle and gritty it was – all at once. I personally don’t like very gentle scrubs that feel as if they aren’t doing the job. At the same times, I know that harsh scrubs like apricot tear your skin and are actually do more harm than good.
Which is why I was simply amazed by this product. It felt as if there were a thousand beads in one tiny blob. It did a great job in scrubbing my skin, but it didnt feel as harsh as an apricot scrub. And when I washed it off, my skin felt insanely smooth. Like smoother than it has ever felt. Oooh!
This was 5 years ago. And I still use this product. Twice a week. I can’t describe how much it has helped my skin.
In summers, it helps unclog my pores and prevent sun spots from appearing.
In winters, it sloughs off the build-up of dry, dull skin and allows my other skincare products to absorb better.
I once went on a winter holiday, and left this at home. BIG MISTAKE!
I didn’t understand why my skin wasn’t glowing as before. It looked dull despite using my serum and moisturizer. That’s when I realized what an impact this stuff actually made on my skin. By removing all the dead skin cells that pile up on the top of your skin (thanks to the cold, dry weather), the other skincare products are able to go deeper into your skin, where they can have the maximum impact. Without it, my expensive serum and moisturizer were just ‘sitting’ on top of my skin – a real waste! I have been travelling with it ever since.
MY VERDICT: It’s a fantastic scrub that smoothens your skin in minutes, remove dark spots (this takes time, but you can see a real improvement within a few months), unclogs pores and even prevent fine lines! If you’re looking for a scrub that makes a real difference, you just found it!
