Most Helpful Positive Review Simply the best (besides going to a pro)
I have been using this many years now. I love how it works. Do not let the price scare you, this lasts a good year if used sparingly.
I am a 47 year old woman who is in the great outdoors a good deal of the time. My skin tends to have some dry patches where exposed and then the rest of my skin is combination. It works well on all areas. I've never experienced breakouts from usage and I have somewhat sensitive skin. I can't even use products with acids in them.
After usage, your skin will feel like you went to the spa.....for a fraction of the cost. Be careful not to rub too hard, the granules are very fine. I start with a clean face that I have steamed. It works even better that way, clearing pores, removing dead skin and leaving my skin feeling balanced with a hint of moisture. It has a little bit of creamy texture so it massages in very easily. It also has a cooling ingredient that you can feel as you massage.
Only downfall is that is is pricey. It is a luxury product with a price tag to match. This is THE top item in my beauty routine, and I will never give it up!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not What I Expected, But Still Like It
I bought the product because the brand of face wash I used discontinued their exfoliant wash that I would use every day. I saw this was on sale in the 21 days of beauty so I thought I might as well try it! When it arrived, I realized it cannot be used every day so it was not really what I needed for my daily skin care routine. I use it as directed, but still had to purchase another every day exfoliant wash. I most likely won't buy it again.

This microdermabrasion is very gentle and leaves my skin so smooth. I really like that this microdermabrasion is also scent free which I really appreciate.
Best Physical Exfoliant I Have Tried
Kelsi from Seattle,WA
I received this product complimentary from the brand. I am not usually much of a fan of physical exfoliants, but I have really enjoyed using this one! The granules are quite small and remind me of sand almost. This scrub leaves my skin feeling and looking smooth and soft. My only complaint about this product is that I find it somewhat difficult to wash all of the granules away. For that reason, I prefer to use this in the shower so I can be sure to thoroughly wash away all of the granules.
Makes skin super soft.
Jasmine from Nashville, Tennessee
It's a great product, but the only thing I don't like, is that afterwards when applying my other products, it stings because of how slightly rough it is. So be mindful of that. Because of that I've stopped using it on my face, & use it on my legs that have kp, & it's been great for that!
Spa treatment at home!
WeirdSkin from Florida
If you have gone to aesthetician or spa and tried the microdermabrasion you'll relate to the feeling of using this exfoliator 👌🏽
With a creamy texture with gentle texture (light rubbing ofc), my skin feels so smooth after it, I use it once a week with 3 days between application (as instructed)
It's so important to follow the instructions so we don't over-exfoliate our skin
the best microdermabrasion!
alaurenb22 from culloden, wv
the status that comes with a Dr Brandt product is so high and I have yet to be disappointed by any product I've tried. this microdermabrasion skin exfoliant is truly one of the best exfoliants I have ever used. the texture is so incredible and feels like you're dermaplaning your face when you gently massage it in. the minty scent is sense-awakening heaven and leaves this cool feeling lingering behind on the skin. this isn't a product you would want to use everyday, but when you're skin is feeling a little rough this is definitely the one I would reach for!
This is a must for every skincare routine
Caitlyn from Pittsburgh PA
I use this every 3 days after I remove my makeup and wash my face. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, clean, and smooth as a baby's bottom.
Great for my dry skin!
Jordan from Riverside, CA
With the dry spots I commonly get, using a physical exfoliator once in a while is necessary. I love how fine the grain is in this scrub! It leaves my skin feeling so smooth without being too abrasive or causing irritation.
Gentle but effective
whatdabeck from Los Angeles, CA
This product instantly delivers baby smooth skin. However with consistent (1-2 weekly) long term use I also am seeing long term improvements of my skin as it is helping brighten and smooth out my texture and dark spots
Sakobe from Orange, CA
Okay I'll say it. I LOVE this product! It's seriously magic. I have combo skin and this product is perfect for giving me a clean and healthy glow. My skin is also sensitive but this exfoliant does not bother my skin at all. This product is seriously a facial inside a bottle! My face did surge a little the first time I used it, but it calmed down within days and I am so happy with the results. I love love the deep clean it provides! I use it in the shower twice a week and that's the perfect amount. It smells like peppermint and feels nice, not too rough, when you rub it on your skin. One of the best exfoliants I have used!
Leaves my skin so smooth

I don't use physical exfoliants a lot on my face, but I love to use this every couple weeks. It is so gentle on my skin and makes my face super smooth!

Very gentle and effective
Katie from Minnesota
I'm not a huge fan of using physical exfoliants on my face, but this product is so gentle. I use this once every couple weeks to get nicely smooth skin.
Great effective exfoliant!
Ashley from Irvine, CA
I've enjoyed using the physical exfoliant! The scrub is very miniscule and polishes the skin surface very well and I always get a smooth, bright complexion afterwards. I know some people have their concerns with physical exfoliants, but so long you don't overdo it, it's really not bad at all. This is one of the more gentle exfoliants that I have tried.
umama from Los Angeles CA
This is an amazing exfoliant is very gentle doesn't feel too abrasive on my skin. Evertime i use this i love the results they are amazing my skin feels super smooth and clear.
Great if you actually get any product
KT from US
Just received this after purchasing during 21 days of beauty. Took the foil seal off and the tube immediately deflated. Only about 1/4 full which is super disappointing. Have used before and loved it, however, not sure it is worth the price for how little is now actually in the tube!

Feels great on my skin!
Best Physical Exfoliator
Wendy C from New York, NY
A really good physical exfoliator.
I only use this once a week and it's enough for me! This physical exfoliator gets rid of dead skin cells giving me gorgeous glowing skin after one use! My face feels so fresh and clean as well.
First Use and I'm hooked
Ashley from Colorado
I tried this for the first time and already see results! It is creamy with tiny crystals to gently exfoliant. Instantly smoother skin, less noticeable pores, and does not dry out. Plus, it smells great with a slight citrus scent. I will be using this twice a week. I'm always skeptical about buying more expensive products (only because there are other brands that are just as good for less) but this is worth the price! Can't wait to see results in a month or two!
love this exfoliator!
courtcurro from New Jersey
This exfoliator is really gentle on my skin! I tend to break out easily from exfoliators, but I haven't had an issue using this one. My skin looks clear and smooth after using it, it doesn't leave my skin too tried out afterwards. I like to use this one a week for my skin type and concerns.
Love this exfoliator
Shils from Portland
This microdermabrasion scrub is gentle, effective and simply amazing.
What makes this exfoliant unique is that it's a combination of both chemical and physical exfoliators. It has lactic acid and aluminum oxide crystals which exfoliate without damaging the skin. It also has soothing, calming and moisturizing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile and jojoba oil.
This is a great treatment to fight dullness, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. This product does deep exfoliation, so I like to use this once a week. It leaves my skin soft, bright and fresh looking. This does have a light citrus smell, which I found to be pleasant and not overbearing.
Good, fine-texture physical exfoliant
Tai from Washington DC
This was a pretty good physical exfoliator. I normally chemically exfoliate to avoid irritating my skin, but this formula has very fine particles that I can work with so long as I'm gentle. I liked the renewed skin feeling it left me. I'll reach for this every once in a while to get a fresh feeling.
StephC from Seattle, WA
This product contails professional grade crystals + Lactic acid that gently buff away dead skin cells to reveal brighter, more even skin. I found that it can be a bit harsh on my sensitive skin so I simply lessen the pressure to apply and it works well. I also like to use it on the backs of my arms when they get a little bumpy.
An excellent physical-chemical exfoliator for baby soft skin
Neelofar from NY
I absolutely love this and am pleasantly surprised by its efficacy!
An age defying exfoliator with uber fine crystals, this cream based skin polishers contains crystals are so fine, you dont feel it as you smooth out the creamy exfoliant on your damp skin. It's only when you start to massage, do you feel the minute powder like crystals. Dr Brandt's Microdermabrasion is far from gritty. It's one of the most gentle yet effective exfoliators I've used. I LOVE the inclusion of Lactic Acid and right after the first use, my skin was baby soft to touch. I also ended up using it on my arms and shoulders. It does contain a pleasant citrus fragrance however, it doesn't last for long. I'd definitely repurchase this!
Facial at home
Tintin from Florida
I used this once a week and I ensure that I will not apply too much pressure while massaging this cream as it can be too abrasive for my sensitive skin. I like how it gives me soft and brighter every after use.
Acne scar discoloration
Petite tammie from San Francisco
I love this exfoliator. It has very fine crystala to buff off dead skin and leave my skin smooth and feeling so good. I actually see my acne scar did fade off a bit faster than usual.
Cult-favorite Exfoliator for Radiant Skin!
Kate from Park City, Utah
*Kindly gifted from Dr. Brandt
If you love physical exfoliating then you will absolutely fall head over heels for this pro-level microdermabrasion exfoliator! It's a lightweight cream which targets texture, lines & wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. This cult-favorite exfoliator combines pro-grade aluminum oxide crystals + lactic acid to polish, remove dead skin cells and soften skin!
Since this offers such a deep exfoliating formula, I recommend (especially for sensitive skin) that you use no more than 1x per week on damp skin using a very cautiously gentle, methodically slow massage. After each use, I've definitely experienced impressively radiant skin that's truly baby soft. I follow up this treatment with an array of gentle, soothing & calming products but no acids or Retinols, etc
