Skin Care Review: LOreal ReFinish MicroDermabrasion Kit

by Hope, Anchorage, AK USA


The key benefits are immediately smoother skin, and more even tone within three uses.

The key drawback is that it could be a little harsh on dry or sensitive skin.

I have pale, combination skin with lots of blackheads and a few acne scars and discolorations. I'm 37, but anti-aging wasn't my primary interest in a treatment -- I was looking for something to even and brighten my skin tone, so that I would look better when I go without make-up. I've used this product three times. I'm very happy with it and will continue to use it. I haven't had many dermatologist's treatments to compare it to, but I'm surprised a drug-store, over-the-counter product could do this much. I had a very expensive "pumpkin peel" at a spa recently, and this L'Oreal product has already done more than the spa treatment did. Step 1 is a grainy scrub you're supposed to use for 1-2 minutes. It feels more intense than other scrubs I've tried. Step 2 is a nice, thick soothing cream. I'm not one for heavy creams, but this one doesn't feel greasy or heavy -- it just feels very comfortable and protective. I've used the product three times now (in six days), and my skin feels a little smoother and definitely looks more even. I haven't noticed an improvement in my blackheads, but that isn't a claim that this product makes. Besides, I've never found ANYTHING that makes a dent in those!

I recommend it for smoother, brighter, more even skin.
