I am 54 and I refuse to show any signs of aging. Other than my memory that is…
So to that end, I am fanatical about a few steps in my personal skin care regimen—SPF, exfoliating and moisturizers with antioxidants. It’s not secret that I’m addicted to exfoliation, but not everyone has my masochistic side—I can get over-zealous with the mechanical scrubs.
So, it’s wonderful that some smart cosmetic formulators have made it easy for those of use who tend to over-do it as well as for those who are not so keen on scrubbing their upper layers of skin away.
Colbert MD has an ingenious product—Intensify Facial Discs—which take the guesswork out of exfoliation.
Here is the info on Colbert MD Intensify Facial Discs:

Bromelain A highly concentrated form of pineapple enzyme, eliminates dull skin and clears environmental toxins. Promotes long term healing while leaving skin fresh and luminous.
Lactic acid A gentle natural exfoliant, helps reduce fine lines, hyper- pigmentation and other signs of aging
Given that I’m a girl who loves to “feel the burn”, I was pleased with the gentle yet effective exfoliation from the discs that are saturated with the product—no need to measure or get your hands messy. I could immediately feel and see a difference in my skin; it was definitely smoother and brightened.
Over the course of three weeks, I saw continued improvement—pores appeared smaller and texture improved where I have a horrible habit of picking. The hyperpigmentation in that area was also slightly improved.
Pro: Gentle enough for delicate skin, yet effective. Double exfoliation with enzymes and
Con: Discs are a tad small for my big hands…
