What is microdermabrasion? Basically, it’s just a skin exfoliating treatment. It’s meant to remove dead skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve the skin’s appearance and in some cases help reduce acne scars.
Truth – I’m addicted to exfoliating my face and my body. It’s a healthy addiction, I don’t go overboard (just twoish times a week).
Smooth, soft skin is where it’s at.
Truth – this winter has been hell on our precious skin. I found myself flaking away no matter how much exfoliating and moisturizing I did. Better days lie ahead for our skin. Thank God!
So, here’s what I’ve been scrubbing with this past winter, and they’ve done a real good job. Both of these scrubs are very effective and are very abundant in exfoliating particles. What I’m saying is, if you like a light buff, these aren’t for you. I love a good heavy duty scrub.
Revision Finishing Touch ($35 for 1.7 oz)
microdermabrasion scrub for polished skin
Polynesian volcanic black sand and ultra fine pumice exfoliate and remove dead skin cells and leave your skin smooth and polished. Freshwater silt hydrates and nourishes and absorbs impurities. The best part about this scrub is that it doesn’t leave your skin feeling super tight and screaming for moisture. It really does rejuvenate the skin and brighten up the dull.

Derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub ($29.99 for 2 oz)
Another great exfoliator at a good price point. The consistency of this one is almost identical to that of the Revision Finishing Touch. A blend of sea salt and volcanic sand buff away the dead skin. Lemon and Lime peel brighten up the skin and grape seed oil and vitamin e help to hydrate. I do feel like I need to hydrate immediately after, but that’s what you do after you wash your face anyway. This scrub is also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.
