Skin Care Review: Neutrogena At Home MicroDermabrasion system

by marta

Adverse Effects

No benefits for me.

Led to breakout, 3 different attempts.

To be clear, the Advnaced Solution systems uses Micro-Oxide Crystallized Cream and includes a little hand buffer with instructions to buff 1-2 minutes per forehead area, left and right cheek, chin area. The first week of treatment requires daily evening regiment, then to drop back to two or three per week thereafter. I never got throught the first week.

Within 2 or 3 days, I got a pimple (I am 55 and don't usually get these!).. I stopped after a couple of days. That "pimple" took quite a while to heal. A month later, I attempted again, with a pimple appearing in a different location after one or two days of usage. Again, a month after that, it happened for the third time, with the "pimple" in a third different location so I got my money back from Neutrogena.

My skin is not of the type that is sensitive to products or reacting with a breakout of any sort. I have fair skin, eastern European type skin.

I now stick with a commercial manual exfoliant. May try professional microdermabrasion that can boast a better quality crystal and perhaps that combined with good vacuuming of the crystals as is done may bring me success.

I do not recommend this product.
