Remember when you were a kid and you used to create exfoliating treatments out of wet sand, and cover your whole body in it? No? Just me? Fine: imagine that sensation, minus the sand in your swimsuit, and apply it to your face. It's wondrous. At first, I was a little alarmed at how this product really puts the "abrasion" in "microdermabrasion," but after I used it, I loved the results, and felt like my (typically problematic) skin was much smoother. I wouldn't use the product any more than a couple times a week, but that's plenty. Love it!
How do I love this product? Let me count the ways (there's quite a few)! I use a prescription cream called Tazorac (it's like Retin-A). My doc just increased the strength and I've started peeling all over the place. But it only lasts until I use Dr. Michelle Copeland's Microdermabrasion Formula. It's like it gives me a whole new face! I go from peeling and mummified to smooth and soft. Like Movie Maven says, I wouldn't recommend it more than 3 times a week max, but boy what a difference it makes! It's been keeping me looking my best for the last 2 weeks and I don't really know how I could live without it. I've had professional microdermabrasion and it pales in comparison. This cream revealed supple skin I thought had flown south for the winter. Log on to Dr. Michelle Copeland's site and get some on the double (that goes double for those of you in cold climates).
I am a fan of The Copeland line. I have seen it in magazines and on entertainment tv.. I would compare this line to Kate Somerville & Sonia Dakar.. I love trying and using self starters who not only create for others but for themselves, to me it means that you will go the extra mile! This microdermabrasion is great to use.. It's a very this scrub that has a light menthol scent, I am sure this is to help tone your skin after a scrub.. This isn't like other kits I have tried, I found that the granules in the scrub aren't a fine as other lines, this isn't a good or bad thing, just different and worth mentioning. I use about 1/2 tsp. for my entire face, I go lightly on my nose and when close to my eyes.. I pretty much got over my face about about 90 seconds, when using this you don't need to apply heavy pressure.. I go over my face lightly and when I am done, the results are super soft skin without and sensitivity.. I do find my face looks pinkish but this is NORMAL, I think it if looking like the same before using I would be sloughing anything off.. I have been using this every other night.. When I am done I use a nice heavy night moisturizer and when I wake I am finding that my skin look bright and glowing.. I will continue to use and highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a little something extra for if you have an event coming up and no time for a facial, a week of this and your face will look great..
