Product Description

Microdermabrasion is a skin refining technique used in the finest spas and dermatological offices in the world. It works by using specially treated Aluminum Oxide crystals to "sand" away the top layers of the epidermis using machine that blasts the crystals against your skin. By stripping away the dead and dull layers of your skin, smoother, more even toned skin is revealed, skin with a healthy glow and clear pores. Using these crystals also enhances the ability of the skin to absorb other skin care products you use more fully and evenly. Our Skin Obsession Microdermabrasion Crystals are the same crystals you would find in your dermatologist's office. Perfect for home use, these crystals are sold loose, and there is a very important reason for this. Many of the at home dermabrasion kits use heavy, lipid rich creams as the suspension base for the crystals. While this may be fine for someone with very dry tough skin, it can wreak havoc on sensitive, oily or acne prone skin! By shipping the crystals loose, each client can safely and easily add them to their favorite cleanser or cream, one for their specific skin type and one that they know works with their skin. This customizable format allows everyone to use this powerful skin resurfacing tool. The crystals can also be used with just water, to keep the system as simple and pure as possible! And as an added bonus, the crystals are not just for use on your face! They can be used on any part of the body where you need smoother, more even toned skin. Decollate, hands, elbows, knees, feet, legs, arms, anywhere where rough skin is a problem, skin that has been sun damaged and photo aged or just where you would like better absorption of product (Self Tanner, lotions, creams, peeling agents, etc). Your skin will feel like silk and we guarantee you will be thrilled! Item is sold by weight, packaging may vary.

I started using this product in Fall 2008. We are now a couple months away from Fall 2010.

Here are the pros and cons of this product:

Pros:
1) A little goes a long way. A bottle of this product can last a couple months!
2) It's just Aluminum Oxide crystals. I can't use a lot of products because of severe allergies, but this product does not irritate my skin at all.
3) I have had professional microderm treatments before, and I think this is pretty comparable in the way it makes my skin feel after I use it.
4) For the type of product you get and how long it lasts, it's pretty cheap.
5) I feel like it improves the appearance of my skin

Cons:
1) You are not getting the amount advertised. As noted in an earlier review, this is pretty dishonest. Of course, they may be looking at the overall shipping weight. But still, the manufacturers should advertise the amount of CRYSTALS in the bottle.

2) Did I say bottle in Con # 1? Yes, yes I did. You do not get the cute clear plastic container advertised. You get a plastic bottle: the type you'd put your favorite shampoo in while on vacation. As a result, you can't really get all of it out at the end.

So that's my review. Seriously, for as cheap as it is, just give it a try. I would be interested in knowing if someone finds a comparable product from a different vendor, and how much it costs.

I admit that these crystals are great. But they are simply 120 grit aluminum oxide crystals. I bought these for use after the 25% TCA peel (also by Skin Obsession), and they work fabulously. The part that irks me is that I normally find a cheaper, albeit same quality product before I buy. I didn't this time *le sigh*. If I had, I would have seen that right here on Amazon I could have gotten 5 lbs. of the same thing for just a few dollars more. To the home user, a gallon might seem unnecessary. Let me explain. Having used two other popular brands of microdermabrasion, while they left my face feeling somewhat fresher after use. they lacked oomph. With these crystal, you add water or your favorite face cleanser-in my case, CeraVe-at the amount you like. I prefer mine somewhat dense for that illusive "oomph" I mentioned. I like to do this 2-3 weekly. That fact alone will not make this worth it's cost. Now add other family members in my home who also use it. Catch my point? You would be better off ordering the 5 lb. jug even if you don't cleanse with it as much as I. Heck, repackage as gifts. Have spa parties.

Used the crystals with my Pretika Sonic dermabrasion brush, noticed improvement in nasty hyperpigmentation the very first time - looking forward to using it on a regular basis!

Seriously this is my holy grail of skin products. It does exactly what microdermabrasion does, ONLY SOMEHOW BETTER. It has left my skin with a wonderful texture and has gotten rid of a lot of acne in just a handful of uses! MAKE SURE TO KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED WHILE USING IT AND RINSE VERY VERY THOROUGHLY THOUGH BECAUSE IT CAN GET IN YOUR EYES AND IT'S VERY DANGEROUS. Haven't had a problem with that yet though. :)

I'm not going to mince words here: this is the best exfoliator I've ever tried. That's saying a lot since as a former makeup artist and recent skin care junky I've tried more exfoliating formulas than I can count and have always gone back to the same one (Clinique) for over 25 years.

The crystals are the perfect size and texture; I could not imagine them being effective by the looks - they are super fine, smaller than table salt grains yet, extremely effective. You just need a tiny bit and it works with just water!

After one use, the skin on my face felt totally transformed. Not exaggerating here; my health has been facing a bit of a challenge over the past several months and I was put back on cortico steriods which just ruin the skin. Dull complexion, breakouts, dryness, hyper-pigmentation and the list goes on. Over the past few months I had been re-trying ALL of my old five star standbys but had very little success at bringing my skin back to where it was prior to the change in prescription status. With just the first use of the crystals the difference was dramatic!

My face was a little red for about two hours after using the crystals so I'd suggest you don't use this just prior to going out. After the redness subsided, my pores looked smaller, my skin appeared less dull/more healthy, the dry patches were gone and my face felt softer than it has in months. And that's all after ONE use.

Such a tiny bottle - worth every penny and then some though; this size should last for months.

Well, my skin still has a ways to go before it's restored to a condition I'd call *glowing* but this is a HUGE first step in the right direction.

Will *definitely* purchase again and HIGHLY recommended.

I have the worst skin, and this product has helped soften my acne scars and seems to have improved my skin. I like that it's just the crystals I break out from all the harsh products. I follow up after use with a small dab of argon oil and my skin is much improved.
