Brighten Winter Skin with Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant from Birchbox

As I get older I’m starting to get fine lines & skin discolorations on my face.  I know there are many products out there that claim they can help, but I have sensitive skin.  Sadly that means I have no skin care routine.  At all.  So when Birchbox asked me to review Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant it was a true leap of faith.

Here’s what Birchbox says about Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant:

Anyone who’s suffered from chapped cheeks or painful redness after using a rough facial scrub knows that not all exfoliators are created equal. This powerful microdermabrasion treatment instantly brightens all skin types by gently buffing away dead skin cells, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath. Over time, it even reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and discoloration.

In the interest of science (and because I was hoping for a solution to a problem he had) my hubby tested it on his face too.  I liked how the cream made my skin feel silky smooth.  But, the real story is how much it helped my husband’s nose!

He works outdoors.  Last summer, he forgot to apply sunscreen and his nose was badly sunburned.  Since then, the tip of his nose would blister and peel intermittently.  Our doctor told us it wasn’t cancer and that it would eventually heal on its own.  But fast-forward a year and it still had not healed.  After the first application of Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, his nose was a little shiny but didn’t seem any different.  After the 2nd application, it started to lose the redness that earned him the nickname “Rudolph” at work.  Now, after 3 applications, his nose looks normal again!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant is something I would consider an investment product because it’s not cheap.  But, after seeing the way it helped my husband, I’m sold on it.  If you want to try it for yourself, head over to Birchbox and order some. They’ll even cover the shipping.

    Hi. Lisa. I have dry, sensitive skin. My doctor calls it ‘acute dry skin’. It left my skin feeling smooth…not flaky and dry like it usually is. I’m really happy with the results.
