After mentioning on Twitter that I needed something to sort out my uneven skin I was told that a micro dermabrasion treatment might be the answer. As this is out of my price range at the moment I figured a home version was the first step.
I had another Boots No7 voucher burning a hole in my pocket and when I saw the No7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Face Exfoliator I thought I'd give it a go. And it was a bonus that I only had to pay £6 for it!
It claims to give you smoother, more radiant skin and helps to work against the appearance of dark areas and damaged skin. The aluminum-oxide micro crystals sweep away the dead skin cells leaving your skin really smooth. It doesn't feel too rough like a lot of exfoliators do but you can definitely feel it's doing its job. You only need a small amount to cover your face and there are instructions in the box on how to massage it into your face correctly for maximum effect.
I made the mistake of ignoring the instructions that said you should use it every other day and my skin seemed a bit dry so I left it a couple of days after that to recover. I think with me using the skin doctors gamma hydroxy at night it was a bit much for my skin so I'm cutting down to only using it 2 times a week.
After using it for 2 weeks I've definitely noticed a difference in my skin as it looks much more fresh and I look healthy without make up on which is a first! I'll definitely be repurchasing this.
