I have never booked myself a spa day for a facial. While it sounds lovely, it's just not something I want to spend the money on - especially since I have a boatload of my own skincare items to use! When offered the chance to test out Mia Mariu's Microdermabrasion set, I happily obliged as it's a little taste of the spa in my own home.
If you're new to the world of microdermabrasions, they're basically very focused and intense exfoliation. There are a number of reasons why to get one - they sweep away dead surface cells, remove signs of sun damage and/or discoloration, and they make the skin smooth and soft. The Mia Mariu RestauraCel-C set has key ingredients of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, and AHA's.
This RestauraCel-C Thermal Microdermabrasion Set claims to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scars and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's paraben, oil and fragrance free, which is great if you have sensitive skin... however, this product is suitable for all skin types (according to the packaging).
Use is simple - start with a fine application of the Refinisher Cream (pictured above). It's a gritty paste-like substance that serves as the exfoliation agent. Next, take a small amount of the Thermal Activator and massage it in to the skin, over top of the Refinisher Cream, careful not to massage any one area too much. You'll feel the exfoliation and slight warmth as you scrub away the dead skin cells. It's a really nice feeling and it leaves my skin feeling super soft. The next day I can see a difference in the appearance of my skin, especially in my pores which appear tighter, as well as the tone of my face.
This set can be used once or twice a week if you have normal or oily skin, but if you have more mature or sensitive skin, it's recommended you use it every other week.
I REALLY enjoy using this product and highly recommend adding something like this in to your skincare routine. If you're interested in trying this out, one lucky winner has the chance to receive a RestauraCel-C set for themselves! Sorry, this contest is open to US residents only.
