At-home microdermabrasion kits can be a little hit or miss. On the one hand, you can’t expect the same results you would as a microdermabrasion performed at a skincare professional’s office. But on the other hand, for the moderately steep price investment that they usually are, you want to see some results.
I started using Hydroxatone Revitalizing Microdermabrasion in search of something to get my skin in tip-top shape for my wedding. I was a bit worried that the formula may be too intense, dry out or irritate my skin like other at-home microdermabrasion products and peels that I’ve tried. But that wasn’t the case with this product. In fact, the more I use the product, the more I love it.
The Hydroxatone Revitalizing Microdermabrasion Kit comes with the formula as well as a Microsonic Facial Brush used to apply it. There are two speed settings and two brush options: One which is foam padded and the other with bristle brushes that gives a deeper exfoliation. For your first time using the product, I would recommend trying out the padded brush on the low setting to see how your skin reacts. The formula itself will still exfoliate your skin. I typically use the exfoliating brush to apply the microdermabrasion formula and reserve the sponge-like applicator with my cleanser at night, but this will vary depending upon the sensitivity of your skin.
The formula itself is rich and creamy and contains small scrubbing beads that gently scratch the face. You may notice a tad bit of sting when applied. If it bothers you, use the padded brush on the low setting. Some of the active ingredients include magnesium oxide, which helps polish the skin; sesame seed oil, which purportedly helps smooth away fine lines and botanical extracts to help improve your skin’s radiance.
What I love most about this product is my skin looks instantly better after just one use. Whether my skin is feeling a little dull and dry or I am a bit on the oily side and could use some balancing, my skin always looks more refreshed, rejuvenated and tighter after using. It gives me instant radiance, which I absolutely love. I use Hydroxatone Microdermabrasion every other day as directed and am sure to follow up with serum and a rich moisturizer at night. I would definitely recommend this product to any bride-to-be or other women looking to improve their skin’s texture and radiance.
