A facial that includes microdermabrasion is one of my favorites spa treatments. They can, however, get to be a bit pricey if done on a monthly basis. That’s why I love exfoliating at home. With weekly exfoliation, you can almost achieve salon-like benefits, depending on the product you use.
I was so fortunate to receive Dr. Jart+ PORE MEDIC Derma @ home peeling to review and let’s just say it’s just what the doctor ordered.
What it is formulated to do:
Transform rough, dull skin into baby-smooth radiance In just three minutes with this thermal crystal scrub and 60-second peel. First, the scrub releases thermal heat technology to open pores for deep exfoliation, while crystal beads remove dirt and debris. Then the peel instantly but gently dissolves impurities and dead skin cells with lactic and salicylic acids, leaving skin bright and soft. The result is skin that appears instantly brighter with a newly refined texture. Pores look diminished and clearer while dark spots and blemishes are visibly reduced.
Use one to two times per week.
Why I love it:
About my skin:
My skin type: Mature, dry, hyperpigmentation
My skin tone: Dark tan to medium deep with golden undertones
Let me start by saying that I have been dying to try out Dr. Jart+ products, as I have heard so much good about them. The products are formulated by dermatologist and are in the cutting edge of innovation. Love that.
About my results with Dr. Jart+ PORE MEDIC Derma @ home peeling:
After cleansing my skin, I applied Step 1, the Thermal Crystal Scrub to my face after patting dry. I massage this into my skin, with a little extra attention to my “trouble” spots—under my chin where I have hyperpigmentation, and on my forehead where I want to banish the thought of fine lines. I know that this should be a mild scrub, where I let the product do the work, but I’m rather out of control with it comes to using scrubs, so I work this scrub like mad into my skin. Please do not do this at home… (I have pretty strong skin—it’s been testd to the nth degree when I was a working esthetician.)
Step 2 is the 60 Second Bubbling Peel, and that’s just what it does – bubble. This gel is applied directly over the scrub and gently massaged for a “hot” minute. You can see a little fizzing action, bubbling, going on when you apply the gel.
After rinsing the peel off, my skin looks and feels ahhhhmazing. I mean, it’s so soft that I literally have had to keep my hands off of it.
I have used this peel a couple times a week over the course of about 30 days, and when I tell you my skin, which is already in pretty great shape, has seen significant improvement, I mean it. The texture under my chin (where I tweeze my pesky 50+ menopausal whiskers) has been refined. The darkness is diminished in the same area.
I have two enlarged pores that I detest, but they to have been minimized since using this home peel. Overall my skin is just fabulous. I have to stop myself from using this peel on a daily basis.
Also good to know is that this peeling system is not harsh. Although, if you are not accustomed to using peels, I would take it slow, with perhaps once a week to start.
Will you see salon results on the first go round? Well, that depends on the condition your skin is in when you begin using Dr. Jart+ PORE MEDIC Derma @ home peeling. The more you have to correct, the more results you will see from the first use and from cumulative usage.
I LOVE this peel and don’t ever want to be without it.
