[REVIEW]:The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

Lets get to know what is MICRODERMABRASION then we will move further onto today's post.
Often called “microderm” for short, microdermabrasion is a procedure to help exfoliate or temporarily remove a few of the top layers of the skin called the stratum corneum. Much like brushing one's teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove skin “plaque” and skin debris.Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30 day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two - four weeks for continued improvement. It may also be performed at home using a variety of products which are designed to mechanically exfoliate the skin.(Source:Wikipedia)
Fine exfoliating micro particles and crushed garnet stones remove dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth
  • Gives skin a brighter, more radiant look
  • Improves skin texture and tone
    Can you spot the Big C for Vitamin C series
    The ingrediants
    I had lately been looking for a product that gives you a mini peel at home.Around Eid time I went to The body shop tp pick some gifts for bloggers swap and picked up their free magazine.I then read about the products available.This product somehow caught my eye & it went up on my wishlist.Around 2 weeks ago I bought this product.I have used it twice uptil now.
    Its mentioned on the tube that this microdermabrasion technique should be used once or twice weekly.As this is actually a harsh procedure and gives effective results with use over a period of time,i personally don't use it twice weekly.I think in 10 days I ll use it once.
    The packaging is really nice.75 ml of product comes in this tube with a flip up lid that is secure on closing.

    The product has a moisturizer type of consistency.It is quite creamy with small fine beads to help scrub the skin.It has a light citrusy smell & I love any citrusy scent.It freshens me up!
    ~HOW TO USE~
    As it is an exfoliator/scrub it is advised to wet the skin prior to use.I splashed my face with water.Squeeze some product onto your palm.A little product is enough for single use.With the help of index and middle finger rub the area around your cheeks,nose and chin in a light circular motion.Just like this

    And this...
    And this...
    Splash and rinse with water.

    The light massage should be applied no more than 2-3 minutes.
    The scrub totally cleanses my skin removing any dirt or dead skin.The pores feel smooth.Overall my skin becomes baby soft.I love the way how this product actually removes blackheads from my nose area.As my skin is oily so over the period of some days it becomes dull and oil accumulates around different zones.A busy mom like me can not often take time out to visit the spa for a mini peel so I am very satisfied with the results after using this product in the comfort of my home.As microdermabrasion improves skin texture and appearence with time so I am looking forward to use this product in the coming months as well.If you may have very senstive skin this might not be the product for you as it may cause some slight irritation and breakouts.
    This product is on my good products list.I love the soft and smooth skin it gives me at the end.Its actually a mini peel for me.
                                                        Doesn't it feel ALL CLEAR!
    I bought this product from THE BODY SHOP outlet in Centaurus Mall for Rs.2390/-
    You can find it at any TBS outlet nationwide or from their official website.
    I ll recommend this to those who love to invest in quality high end products.It may be heavier on your pocket but it certainly has good effects on your skin.I love the fact that instead of getting a mini peel at the spa,I can achieve somewhat same results at home in lesser money.The body shop has a big range of skin related products that you can choose from according to your skin type as well.
    For more details you can visit them on Facebook
    Have you used any other TBS skin product.
    I am also a big fan of their body butters.
    Thanks a lot for reading.
    Stay happy.Stay blessed.
