When a friend tells you to buy an amazing product, you probably believe it a lot more than when you a salesperson tells you to buy a product.
Well, this is definitely true for me. I am much more likely to reach out to the blog world or my peers when I want to find a new beauty product to try out. I have to admit, I love trying things. I'll try anything once! Well, of course I had to try out some BeautiControl products when a JMU friend (who also happened to be in my Harry Potter class with me!) recommended it. I had never heard of it and was definitely interested. She works for BeautiControl and gave me the 411 about the company. She also sent me some things to try out.
I was totally shocked by how much BeautiControl offers. From something as simple as body creme to something as complex as a tri-peptide complex, BeautiControl has something for any age and any skin type (wait till I do the makeup post.. such fun colors!!). I'm going to do a few posts about the products she sent me because this first product deserves its' very own post... It is INCREDIBLE. Seriously... I have never in my life seen so much result from one product.
What is this magic product I speak of?!
It's the Spa Resurface line and is the Microderm Abrasion for Face. The description says: "Professional grade crystals deeply exfoliate the skin's surface to dramatically increase skin firmness and restore clarity.".... Clarity is right. I've never had terrible skin, but I do have some acne scars and some pop up pimples here and there. I also think I have huge pores.
What do you do with this stuff?
It's a pretty thick, white creamy substance with tiny little particles. You apply it with your fingers over your entire face and then you take a spinning brush and go over your entire face (you do this once a week before you go to bed). It's a little bit like exfoliating but the particles are teeny tiny and there are a lot more compared to an exfoliating cleanser.
I've done it for the past two weeks and I am not kidding you, my face is incredibly soft, clear and actually pretty. I honestly don't mind not wearing makeup because of the clarity of my skin.
The above picture is highly embarrassing of me because it was midnight, post-shower and I was exhausted and ready for bed, but I just had to show you all how clear and smooth my face looked after I did the microderm abrasion treatment.
The product is a little bit pricey for me because I usually purchase drugstore face cleansers and makeup removers. It is $56, but it is worth every penny. I think this is one of those products that would be in my answer to the infamous question "if you could only bring 5 things to a deserted island with you, what would they be".
Right now through Friday, BeautiControl is having a deal where you can buy a set of 6 of the spa resurface products for a total of $163.. I haven't tried the other products in this line yet, but my next purchase is probably going to be the face creme... if you have wrinkles, this line is definitely for you.
