Pros: Wonderful. Resurfaces my skin for instant gratification.
Cons: Not like the professional treatments in my opinion.
I used so many at home contraptions that are suppose to be like the oil of olay microdermabrasion. I have also gone to my skin doctor (dermatologist) to have these treatments done. Since it first came out on the market 4 years ago, I have been pleased and quit impressed with the Olay Regenerist products and have tried most of the line they offer. From a drug store like Walgreens, this is a wonderful product which really fulfills most of their promises. I used the really expensive skin care too like Chanel, Shiseido, Estee and more. Oil of Olay products seem just as good to me as the higher priced skin care.
I was anxious to use the Oil of Olay Microdermabrasion when I first saw it advertised in my favorite magazine. My skin type is normal to a bit oily but I don’t deal with other skin issues like acne. Once in awhile my skin gets a little sensitive. I was thrilled to see Oil of Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion at my local drug store.
This Olay Regenerist Kit is a 2 step process: Step #1: Wash and remove all make-up from your face. You don’t want to massage make-up into your skin. Step #2: The fresh orange fragrance micro gel. The Oil Olay micro gel crystals was applied to my skin and then I massaged it gently with a circle type motion all over my face and neck avoiding the sensitive eye area of course. Step #3: Pat your face gently with a towel and then I then massage the derma crystals gel into my face. The directions on the Oil of Olay Regenerist says to use a quarter size dollop. I felt that was the correct amount too. To be frugal, I have also used a smaller amount and that seemed to work just as well. For less than a minute (45 seconds or so), gently massage into your clean face and neck. If you feel you need a more agressive treatment, go longer, just be cautious the first few times until you see how your skin reacts to this particular Oil of Olay product. I like to do this proceed for around 2 minutes to be sure all the derma crystals are evenly distributed all over my complexion to get a really smooth polish feel and look. LOVE IT!
