A friend of mine had a real spa microdermabrasion session and was thrilled with the results, so I thought I'd try an at-home kit. I don't like using "daily" scrubs because I think they're too harsh on my skin, so this seemed like a good weekly or bi-weekly solution. The way this works is a little strange but I was super pleased! The actual scrub is pretty strong but the granules are very fine and do a thorough job scrubbing - you can control how much of a scrub you want by scrubbing with more or less pressure and by starting with a damp or dry face. The second step is a light serum that seems to melt the little crystals into a light foam. I would recommend hopping in the shower to get everything completely off though, especially if you're scrubbing your neck area, as the scrub gets everywhere.
