Daniella’s review – Dr Jeanette Graf MD Skin Perfect Microdermabrasion Kit
Today’s review is from Daniella aka Madame Gourmand. I love the way she describes herself on her blog and hopefully we’ll meet in person one day as I’m sure she’s loads of fun – so over to you sweetheart!
When contacted me to write a guest post for her I was thrilled, COPD is one of my favorite blogs and I feel honored to be writing for you all today.
The product I will be talking about is the Dr Jeannette Graf MD Skin Perfect Microdermabrasion Kit. I purchased this from Ideal World for £34.99 after reading great reviews. I suffer from dry sensitive skin with outbreaks of eczema and I often find that makeup sticks to my dry patches which look rather unsightly. I’ve been using this product for five weeks now which I feel has given me more than enough time to write an honest review.
If you have never heard of Microdermabrasion before it’s basically a technique that exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the skin. I do have some beauty training and I personally would not really recommend performing even no invasive techniques to the skin without basic training.
Microdermabrasion can decrease the appearance of photo-damage, wrinkles and shallow acne scars. The makers of this products claim it can temporarily reduce the appearance of dry skin, decrease the appearance of free radical damage, reduce the appearance of medium to deep lines and wrinkles, help condition and lock in moisture and help improve the tone, texture and radiance.
The kit contains 1x Facial cleaner 118ml, 1x crème peel 56ml, 1x Post Rinse 118ml and 1x Night Revive 47ml.
If I have been wearing heavy makeup I remove this prior to my microdermabrasion routine, I would also recommend you remove any eye makeup as the eyes are not touched during the cleansing process.
After I have removed my eye makeup I start by applying the stage 1 product Facial prep cleanser with Lactic Acid, this contains very fine gritty particles which cleanses the skin removing any excess oil, impurities and makeup. I moisten my skin before application and rub with my fingertips in a circular motion. I use this on my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin then rinse off with warm water, I find that you don’t need to use a wash cloth with this product as the particles are quite fine.
The next step is the Crème Peel with Lactic acid and BHA, this removes dead skin cells and gives the skin a deep clean, I would suggest that you do not rub too vigorously as the skin does start to go red and you only want to take off the stubborn areas and not cause damage to the skin. The product suggests you rub this in for three minutes but I would suggest if you need to stop sooner, do so. At this stage the skin does start to feel a great deal smoother.
Step 3 Before
Step 3 After
The next step involves removing the Crème Peel and to do this we use the Post Rinse with Lactic Acid and BHA, apply this to a muslin cloth, I have used a cotton pad to show the difference. The rinse ensures all remaining dead skin cells are removed and cleans the pores. I had cleansed my face prior to starting this process and you can see how much dirt was removed from my skin on the second pad.
The final step is the Night Revive Complex with Lactic Acid and BHA, this is a highly emollient formula and works while you sleep, when you apply this product to the skin it feels amazing, if you suffer from dry skin like myself you will never feel your face feeling so soft!
I started off by performing the routine every 3 days, after 2 weeks I reduced this to once a week and I can see results already, my skin is so much softer and brighter and I have a lot more radiance.
If you are considering microdermabrsion I would suggest you seek professional advice before doing this at home unless you have training in the procedure.
