I have the weirdest skin… It's sensitive in one respect in that I often get breakouts from products, but not at all sensitive in the way that it needs serious sand blaster levels of exfoliation on a regular basis. I blame the weather here in the UK because when I lived in a tropical climate, I had completely opposite skin traits.
I had the opportunity to try out the Rodan + Fields Enhancement Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and it's been working wonders on my skin. Let me first say, this product doesn't mess around… It means business! It's not recommended for sensitive skin, however I've had no problems using it at all.
The knack to the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is in the application. It's recommended to apply the paste directly to dry skin and massage in circular motions for 60 seconds followed by rinsing with water. For a gentler approach, the product can be applied to damp skin. I've tried the product both ways and found different results. Applying the product to dry skin meant I had to scrub very gently to avoid irritation and I had very smooth results, however when I applied it to damp skin I was able to scrub a bit more rigorously and got even smoother results. I prefer applying the micro-dermabrasion paste to damp skin and I'm very pleased with fresh, smooth skin that lasts for days afterwards. I like to follow up with a serum and moisturizer to keep my skin from getting too dry.
I definitely recommend Rodan + Fields Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste for anyone who has regularly dry, flaky skin and wants a smooth, glowing complexion. This product is saving my face this winter!
Rodan + Fields Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste retails for $78 and is available online via Rodan + Fields.
