One of my New Year’s resolutions (insofar as I believe in those) is to start taking extra-good care of my skin. This past year I’ve done better than before, especially considering all the new products I’ve been testing- having an article due is a good reminder to actually USE all those shiny products sitting on your vanity table.
This Microdermabrasion Cream from LAVO seems like a good way to start the year. I like the idea of microdermabrasion treatments but some of the ones I’ve used in the past have been a little harsh on my sensitive skin. What I like about this one is that the grainy abrasion particles are suspended in a creamy base which includes calming Aloe Vera and Chamomile Extract- thus making the overall experience a little more skin-soothing.
The professional-quality cream contains super fine aluminum crystals to polish up your skin and actually make your skin lighter and brighter without the use of chemicals. It also contains moisturizers and fruit enzymes to keep your face hydrated.
I found that the crystals were indeed super-fine, sort of like rubbing soft beach sand on your skin at the ocean. Just a few minutes of rubbing helped clear away dull, dry, flaky winter skin and left my face feeling tingly, soft and clean.
I will definitely continue to use this and see what long-term effects it has on my skin.
