Exfoliating scrub and home microdermabrasion cream?

Does anyone know the difference between the two? Can I achieve similar results with either one of them? If not why not? Thanks.

Re: Exfoliating scrub and home microdermabrasion cream?

An exfoliating scrub usually contains larger particles & is rougher on the skin. Microdermabrasion cream contains corundum crystals which are very, very fine - so they are easier on the skin, yet they do exfoliate.

Microdermabrasion cream will do a more even exfoliation just because the particles are tinier (they are fine like the fine sand you see in hourglasses).

I prefer microdermabrasion cream.
