L’Oréal ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit

L'Oreal ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit

I bought this one about 11 months ago when I went inside a drugstore to buy something but then a silver box suddenly caught my eye. So I’m a sucker for packaging. Anyway, according to the L’Oreal website:

ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit polishes away uneven texture and tone to instantly reveal healthy, luminous skin.

The kit contains a Gentle Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator and a Post-Treatment Protective Moisturizer. So I followed the steps carefully on how to use the Micro-Dermabrasion Kit, hoping to reveal an ultra-smooth, glowing skin.

After using the Gentle Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator, it did reveal an ultra-smooth, glowing skin but the effects are temporary. Ultra-smooth meaning soft as a baby’s bum when you touch your face but it did not smoothen out those little bumps that you sometimes have. Glowing meaning like literally glowing because of the aluminium oxide micro crystals (also used in professional micro dermabrasion) that is contained in the product. It also did not even out my skin tone nor reduced my fine lines (although I’m just 26). I’ve come to the conclusion, after a few scrubs of this product on my face, that it is a bit harsh on my slightly sensitive skin so I stopped using it.

For the other half of the ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit, the Post-Treatment Protective Moisturizer, I didn’t liked that the main ingredient is vitamin E, which is not suitable for me because based on my experience, other products that contained vitamin E made my skin more oily. So I only used the moisturizer once to prove to myself once again that I shouldn’t use products containing vitamin E (it’s kinda weird but that’s the way my skin reacts to vitamin E).

The L’Oréal ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit is still on my bathroom shelf after 11 months, still half full. You might wanna give this product a try if you have normal skin, but I won’t recommend it to those who have sensitive skin and maybe oily skin too.
