This review is from: Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System (Health and Beauty)
About six months ago I stopped using ProActiv, a system I'd been using since I was fifteen. It had done wonders for my adolescent skin at the time, but five years later, I was sick of buying it every two months and sick of the fact that if I went as much as two days without all three steps, I'd break out. The thing about ProActiv is that after frequent use, your skin gets a bit addicted. So, while the breakouts that came after I stopped using it were bearable, my skin was still in the worst condition it had been in since I was a fifteen and I desperately wanted that to change. I tried everything (seriously. I'm a bit of a product junkie...) and NOTHING helped. Nothing.
Enter the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion device! After two uses, my skin better than it has ever been. All the small bumps and clogged pores that came about in the past few months have pretty much gone away, and while I always had a few clogged pores on my nose even with the ProActiv, those have gone away too! No new blemishes are popping up, and my skin is softer, smoother and less "tired" looking than normal, even with the added stress of end of the year exams! Definitely a great product, and one I will continue to use!

Great to see a review from another young person. I'm 24 and looking around for a good product to clear up those pesky blackheads and light acne. I've been using philosophy facial cleansers but I wanted to add a product like this to give my routine a boost. I thought leaving the teenage years behind me would mean no more acne... guess I was wrong!

Thanks! I use proactiv and am going to use this in concert for a while but I would love to be able to ditch the uber-expensive proactiv system! I bought this and tried it today and it was amazing! My skin felt so soft, I couldn't believe it ... looking forward to those clogged pores on MY nose to go away too :)
