Pamper Yourself with At-Home Microdermabrasion


By now, y'all probably know that I'm a skin care junkie.  Most nights, I use four serums on my skin.  It may sounds a little excessive, but I like to focus on good skin care so that I don't have to wear as much make up.



I recently had the opportunity to try three Exuviance products - the Purifying Cleansing Gel, Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish, and the Collagen Triple Boost Serum.  I love the idea of being able to do an at home microdermabrasion treatment on myself!

I start out by using the Purifying Cleansing Gel.  Have you ever put a product on your fingers to apply it and immediately feel like it's going to be an amazing product?  That's the feeling I had when I tried this cleanser for the first time.  It makes my oily skin feel so clean!  It's described as an "anti aging face cleanser... to soothe and improve the skin's texture," and that it does.

After cleansing, I go on to use the Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish.  For a face polish, it was much more gentle than I was expecting.  You massage a small amount of the product on to your face for 30 seconds, and then leave it for up to two minutes.  (It's recommended to only use it for one minute if you have sensitive skin, and I agree.  My skin is very sensitive, but I insisted on using it for two minutes the first time... and my skin was red the next day.)  I expected really dramatic results the first time I used this, but after using it multiple times, I've come to realize that it really does work best when you use it twice a week.  I've used it a few times now, and my pores look sooo much better!  (I wish I had taken before and after photos... that's how much better they look!)

My last step in my Exuviance trio is the Collagen Triple Boost Serum.  Your skin stops making collagen before you're even old enough to understand how important collage is to having youthful looking skin, so I love that this product helps to stimulate new collagen!  This serum is unlike any other serum that I've used.  It feels like an oil while applying it, but it sets up on your skin like a gel.  I definitely got a little carried away when applying it the first time, so be sure to remember that a little bit goes a long way.

I follow up using my regular moisturizer.  It's can get a little gunky when applying over the serum, so keep that in mind.

Have y'all ever tried a microdermabrasion product before?  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a fun makeup post :) Happy Tuesday!

  1. Fun! I hadn't heard of this brand before.

    A tip to avoid the gunky feeling when applying moisturizer after a serum: let the serum sink in. As in, multiple minutes worth of waiting. Your moisturizer will apply better and you'll also probably feel the benefits of the moisturizer a bit more too. You should also wait a good length of time before applying a primer after your moisturizer, and again after your primer before applying whatever base makeup you use. The time makes such a huge difference for me!

  4. I love getting facials at the spa but they can get really expensive, this seems like a great alternative to really keep my face clear and moisturized.

  5. I am just as obsessed with skin care products! The more time you spend on skincare when you're younger, the less wrinkles you will have when you're older. That's my philosophy!! I am dying to try those products now. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I have never tried any microdermabrasion products before. But your skin looks great, so clearly something is working very well for you! I'll have to check it out sometime soon :)

    btw: I wrote a few questions on a post and I would love it it if you would take the time to answer! I think it would be great to tell me a little bit more about you.

  12. This is the first I'm hearing of this brand. The products sound amazing! So many benefits. Glad you did this review. Skincare is so important. If your skin doesn't look good, makeup will not lay right.

  13. I used to have an at home microdermabrasion and also a salon one when I was in my teens because my skin looked horrible due to exam stress and not keeping up with skincare! Now that I'm in my twenties, my skin is so much healthier that I use a simple scrub - I definitely think these make a big difference to your skin and maintain it for the future!
