PMD Personal MicroDerm System

A couple of months ago, I received this Personal Microdermabrasion system to test out.

I’ve had microdermabrasion sessions in the past and they were amazing and I felt and saw and instant change n my skin. However, they can become pricey over time. So, to know that there is now an system that you use at home is pretty amazing.

The PMD Personal Microderm System is a handheld microdermabrasion tool to help smooth away the signs of aging. The results are definitely on a professional level.

After the first use, I instantly felt and saw results in the smoothness of my skin and the overall look.

The kit comes with the microdermabrasion handheld tool, 2 caps(small and large), 2 green pads, 4 blue pads, and a DVD that you should definitely before using. The DVD thoroughly explains how to use the system and techniques and which pads work for you.

With this uber-hot summer weather and my desire to need smoother skin to feel comfortable enough to wear minimal makeup, this microdermabrasion kit is a summer skin necessity for me.

I HIGHLY recommend you add one of these systems to your beauty regimen.

L’Oreal Go 360 Clean Anti-Breakout Cleanser

When it comes to my acne-prone skin, it let’s me know pretty much instantly if it likes whatever product I’m using on it. For the past week, I’ve been using L’Oreal’s Go 360 Clean Anti-breakout cleanser and it’s been amazing!

I love the little scrub that comes with it, because it’s uber soft and really cleans the makeup and dirt that washing alone doesn’t always remove. It works just as good as a face brush, but less abrasive.

Go 360 Clean is a line of deep pore-by-pore cleansers. There are five different formulas from which to choose. Every 360 Clean cleanser is designed with the innovative super soft Sublet to help you reach deep into every last pore for the cleanest clean.

Crabtree & Evelyn’s Citron Bath and Body Care

A little while ago, Crabtree & Evelyn sent me a box of products from their new Citron range that features honey and coriander.

Since I’m about to practically hit pan on everything and the scent is perfect for spring, I feel it’s definitely time I point these products out to you. Keep reading for more!

I love the scent of coriander and lemon on their own, so I was not surprised that I instantly fell in love this collection.  The combination of citron, coriander, and honey gives a lovely cool, crisp and clean scent with feminine undertones thanks to honey, I presume.

Now, on to the products! The cleansing bath and shower gel is a typical body wash that suds up nice and soapy and rinses off easily and with not residue. FYI, if you hate residue left off from body wash, then switch to gel body washes. They rinse and slide off easily with water!

The skin quenching body lotion is just that, a light in texture lotion that moisturizes just enough. I keep this on my desk at work for when I return from the bathroom, because the antibacterial soap in the ladies room dries my skin like no other!

The body souffle is a heavy cream that will be a godsend for those of you with dry skin and the love of soft citrus scents. It practically melts into your skin on first touch and gives you soft skin for hours without a greasy feel. I love it!

I haven’t used the body bars, yet, but I’m looking forward to taking more baths rather than showers this summer and I have a feeling that these are going to be great to use and smell while soaking. I’ll let you know!

Now, on to my favorite product from the skin smoothing body scrub. The consistency and texture of this scrub is unlike any other scrub I’ve ever used. It feels more like a heavy body cream with a little grit, but that grit works! After using this scrub, I was left with skin that is equally smooth and moisturized. I loved it so much, I’ve order a couple of more!

I wish that there was a body spray in the collection, because I’m a firm believer in the 1-2-3 punch aka body wash-lotion-body spray. Hopefully, they will offer it the future. *fingers crossed*

So, if you love citrus scents and good body care products, then you should definitely try out this collection from Crabtree & Evelyn.

I’m serious about that body scrub!

Review: My Clean & Clear skin care regimen

Every skin care line has a three-step skincare regimen that usually includes a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. Although, I believe that Clean & Clear has a three-step skincare kit, I decided to “create” my own using different products from Clean & Clear.

So, keep reading to read my review and what frustrated me to try something new.

About a month ago, after being a hardcore believer that Cetaphil was the cleanser for me and my acne prone combo skin, my skin did not feel clean after using it. Maybe it was my oil skin, but I started to want to rework my skin care regimen

The Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser is  a cream cleanser which I thought would work for my slowly drying skin.

The Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning astringent for sensitive skin has salicylic acid which I thought would be good for my sensitive acne skin.

Finally, the Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer combines oil-free moisture for oily skin and salicylic acid to prevent breakouts which tends to follow oily skin like mine.

The first item I bought was the moisturizer a couple of months ago when it was still too hot outside for my skin to be anything BUT oily. I bought this to lightly moisturize my skin while preventing breakouts and it did. Well, it did until the weather calmed as well as the oiliness of my skin. After that, my skin just laughed at me thinking that this moisturizer could do anything for my drying skin.

The next item I bought a couple of weeks after the moisturizer was the astringent. I wanted to try something a little stronger than the witch hazel I’d been using for months. Although I try to only use one item in my skin regimen with salicylic acid to avoid overdrying of the skin, I thought this wouldn’t be too bad because it’s for sensitive skin.

This astringent was a little strong for a sensitive formula and it helped in the drying of my skin, oily and normal skin. So, I was  not feeling this. AT. ALL.

The final thing I bought a couple of weeks ago is the cream cleanser, because  Cetaphil and I needed a break. This cleanser is creamy and gentle and did a fairly decent job cleaning my skin without leaving any residue.

FINAL OPINION:

  • The moisturizer was good for my skin when it was oily. So, I might buy this again in the spring and summer when my skin is at its oiliest. Grade: B+
  • The astringent was too harsh, especially for sensitive skin and I didn’t notice any difference except that it made my skin feel super tight and dry, even when it was oily. Grade: D-
  • The cleanser was nice, but not for me. It did a fairly good job washing my face and was refreshing. However, I would have preferred it better if would lather or foam. Grade: B
