Remember back when I reviewed Bioelement's Pumice Peel? I stated that I had yet to find a scrub that I felt was both effective and gentle enough for the face, with small and even grit that was appropriate for facial skin. The grit of the Pumice Peel was small and even and I loved the product, I called it a Holy Grail product. Well, I have now found a second product that is definitely worthy of being mentioned in the same post as the Bioelements Pumice Peel. In the interest of full disclosure, I honestly have to say that I do not have a preference for the Pumice Peel or the Microdermabrasion. However, both products are fantastic and the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion is also worthy of being named a Holy Grail Scrub!
Dr. Brandt's Microdermabrasion is everything you want a great scrub to be. It has very small even grit, it has a faint citrus smell, rinses easily without residue and only a small amount is all you need. The instructions state how long to leave on the product and how long to "scrub" with it. They are based on your type of skin- longer for those with oily, acne prone skin, shorter for those with sensitive skin. I think by following the instructions this scrub is made appropriate for every skin type, and it is likely the better choice for those with sensitive skin given this and the smaller grit size. After using this scrub my skin is left smooth (so smooth I can't stop touching my face!), glowing and radiant!
• aloe vera: healing emollient that soothes irritation and prevents scarring.
• chamomile (anthemis nobilis flower oil): calms, soothes and reduces irritation.
• green tea (camellia sinensis): anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant that boosts the sunscreen action to protect against free radical damage. green tea has been clinically proven to prevent cellular damage caused by exposure to UV rays.
• Magnesium Oxide Crystals: These diamond shaped crystals are the "grit" in this scrub.
