Rated 4.65 out of 5 stars
Although this is expensive, it is by far the best microdermabrasion cream I have tried. I have lupus and get deep lesions that don't heal when I'm in a flare up leaving scabs that peel and crate deep scarring craters. The gentle cleaning cream helps to heal the lesions then once healed, the microdermabrasion cream gently takes away the dead, dark and flaky skin that is left. I apply the face moisturizer after for really soft, smooth skin. Really helps to smooth out my skin without leaving redness and peeling for the next few weeks. I've spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars over the past 6 months on prescription medications my dermatologist and rheumatologist have prescribed yet this is by far the best stuff I've bought hands down. I've only been using the stuff 2 weeks and the results are incredible. It's pretty amazing that after months of treatment for my lesions I've just about cleared them up with these products in about 2 weeks. Recommend to anyone that has the same issues!!!
I definitely preferred it to the deep AHA cleanser from Exuviance and I felt like I did see a bit of brightness of my face. Granted I do use other products that are a part of my skincare regime such as my serums and ampoules. I did stop using vitamin C and retinol, which I believe are more conducive to giving you clearer skin or 'a glow' because I wanted to see the results from this product.
Like I said, I did enjoy and used it the recommended two times a week in the shower. I used a bit more than a dime sized amount and applied to my wet face without harsh scrubbing. It wasn't overly harsh on my face and I didn't feel anything burning or tingling sensation. Note: I have sensitive, reactive, eczema prone skin so I am always hesitant when trying new skincare products and I sometimes don't always do a patch test. I know! Terrible! Awful! All that stuff, but who really ALWAYS do the patch test? Especially when you're excited about trying a new product? Exactly.
The polish was easy to use. I had no issues squeezing it out of the tube, there was no struggle to grip or anything of that nature. i liked that it was a kind of deep hued pink with small granules inside. I didn't really smell any fragrance, as I did for the cleanser. It could be that there is a faint scent, but I didn't detect one. (I did lose my sense of smell to COVID, so there's that) If you smelt something, you can let me know, I guess. The packaging was great for me. I have always preferred a 'less is more' approach when it comes to my skincare products. Clean minimalist looks have always been more enticing for me to buy a product. So this worked well for me aesthetic wise.
I must say, even though I did see a brightness in my face, or 'a glow' I am not sure it was attested entirely to this microdermabrasion polish. Like I said, I still incorporated other skincare products in my regimen. What I will say however, is that I don't feel like this trudged off the dead skin off my face well. It feels like it tried to because when I rinsed this off my face, I did see where it would leave the dead skin that it, I guess, lifted and I would have to 'scrape' them off with my cotton pad to remove them completely. My skin didn't feel any softer or smoother than before after using it.
Overall, it was an OK product. Would buy it outside out this free sample? Hmm, no. For the price I think I can pick up several other scrubs that work just the same or even better. Right now, I will stick to my chemical exfoliators as they are getting the job done. If you have the money to splurge and you want to treat yourself, go ahead, but this was just an ok polish to me.

this used to wonderful. a very gritty paste, plus the chemical exfoliators. now it's just the chemical (acids). this is in no way a "scrub" anymore. it's like rubbing lotion on your face. the Winky Lux Vitamin C scrub is what this used to be, plus it's 1/5 the price.

I have used this product for years! I have to admit I have bought cheaper versions but nothing compares to this one! The granules are perfectly sized and the tingle is perfect for knowing it's working! My skin has always felt smooth every time!
Priscilla from Charleston, SC
Amazing. My skin loves the combo of chemical and manual exfoliation here! Don't need a lot of product, plus you can customize how long you leave it on your skin to reach your preferred level of resurfacing. Will purchase again and again!!!!!!

This significantly improved the texture of my skin. It does tingle a bit but I don't mind it. You're not supposed to keep it on for long anyway. I leave it on a for 1-2min than rinse right off.

Worked but was a bit drying to my skin. The renewal cream helped with that though. I would definitely recommend it. My skin was firmer after just 2 weeks of application.

The peel pads are incredibly effective, the product does what it says it will. The activator pad is very gentle and my skin looks amazing after using the neutralizer pad.

I do like this it made my face feel smooth, brighter and luminous. My skin is super sensitive and I did feel the tingle but it was not extreme and it did not turn my face red!! Definitely a necessity in your skin care routine

I really like the idea of this product. There are two face wipes covered with different magic ingredients. You use one as the peel and follow up 10 min later with the second one as a calming agent. They even give you an extra set of pads to test on a small part of your skin to make sure you don't have a bad reaction. I did not and was able to use this no problem. Unfortunately, I did not see any changes. Maybe I didn't use it long enough. Maybe it didn't work on me.

Makes me skin so smooth! Love it

I'm normally sensitive to scrubs but this one just transformed my skin. Worth the price tag, you will not be disappointed.

I love this stuff! I feel immediate results. It is wonderful! My face feels so rejuvenated after I rinse it off. Thank you to Jackie for helping me select this product! That's what customer service is about.....helping the customer!

A lovely microdermabrasion product. I typically go for something more abrasive but scrubbing isn't necessary with this product. Smells lovely and leaves the skin plump and moisturized.
Heather from New York
I know it's pricey, but this is my FAVORITE physical exfoliator for the face. My skin benefits from a lot of exfoliation, so I typically use the Tatcha rice powder exfoliant on the daily (another excellent product). The Tatcha one is very gentle, so this Exuviance polish is fantastic for a really good scrub once or twice a week. Physical exfoliants like these used in combination with 3-4x weekly lactic acid has really helped to fade my acne scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation!

In general I have a very sensitive skin,I always missed exfoliate of my skin care routine.I was told to use 2-3 times per week but the product worked so well for me I decided to use only once.My skin changed drastically.Looks cleaner,younger and smoother.It's very gentle so if you have a sensitive skin this is for you.In general I'm very satisfied with this brand.I'm using their other products as well

Just bought this on a 21 days of beauty sale and now I wish I had gotten two!
I was having an issue with texture, skin tone and dullness. (I'm 41 ) Tried a few different exfoliating products. (Dermalogica microfoliant, jack black face buff) Nothing compares to this! I used as directed… massaging just a thin layer of product into my skin and left on for 2 minutes. Followed with hydrating essence and moisturizer. My skin had a bit of tightness to it, similar to after a peel. The next morning my skin was noticeably brighter and texture more refined. The large pores on my nose and cheeks were smaller. I was very surprised at the immediate results. It's pricey but you don't need much. So excited to find something that actually works!!

I can't afford to go to a spa so when I received this as a sample and after using it one time, I was sold. I can say I noticed a difference after one use. my face was buttery smooth. I looks bright and tight. I use it 2x a week and leave it on for 2 mins following up with a high end moisturizer. I only do it at night. I love this product and hope you will too.
Heather from Denver, CO
I got a sample of this and tossed it in my vacation bag without much thought. It's a nice physical exfoliator with some good scrub to it and it left my face feeling smooth. At the end of my trip, there wasn't much left so I tossed it. Only after returning did I actually look up the product. This is supposed to be a premium product with a premium price tag?! It's not worth it. It's a nice scrub, but it's on par with drugstore brands. There's really nothing special here. Splurge on something else.

I absolutely love this product I noticed a difference on day 1 and my fine lines and wrinkles that I was starting to have have slowly faded! Loved how simple it was to use too!

I received this free from Exuviance and Influenster for my honest review. If you want an amazing at home peel for your face this one is absolutely amazing!!! Instructions are super easy and the results are awesome. I also love how it comes in individual packages.

I enjoyed the peel, I feel it helped with the texture in my skin and made my skin very soft after use. I used it about twice a week and didn't notice a big difference in my acne scars which I was really hoping for. It also stung a bit. I would definitely have a heavy moisturizer afterwards as it was drying at least for me. I would recommend to someone if they wanted a softer texture and to help minimize pores.
Tabby from Scottsdale, Arizona
So I'm going to start off saying that this is an exfoliator meant to resurface your skin. It's not meant to get rid of makeup. It's only to be used 2-3x weekly and it helps improve fine lines and uneven skin texture; along with blackheads and acne. I struggle with blackheads on my nose and I used this for one week and they were gone! It even helped minimize my fine lines in my forehead; making my skin look tighter and more bright. My skin is so soft and radiant now which I struggle with having dry skin in Arizona during the winter. I will say that you need A LOT of moisturizer/face cream after using this as it is an exfoliator. Make sure to use a serum as well! And SPF if using in morning
Donna from Oklahoma
This may be expensive, but you get what you pay for. This product is extremely wonderful. It does what it says it will do. My skin is so much better. I see a big difference and I have not used it a month yet. I always give a product at leat a month to see results.
Brittany from Missouri
First and foremost, yes, it's pricy. When I received my bottle, at first, I was so disappointed at how little the bottle was...
... HOWEVER, I quickly realized that just a little bit of this goes a long way. I haven't used it long enough to say whether or not it helps with fine lines, but I can say it has almost instantly minimized my pores and has left my face feeling clean, soft, and without residue.
I highly recommend this. Again, a little goes a long way. I normally use Dermalogica products, and this has become a new favorite alongside those. I will buy this again.
Christina from Morristown
Has a physical and chemical exfoliation. So it helps your skin from within. Wet face, rub on, let set for few mins and rinse.
