Re: Microdermabrasion "home kits"?
Ok, I"ve used Lancone "Resurfacing" and also Susan Lucci "Youthful" I happen to like both. Susan's exfoliator is pretty rough and then you use the massager and massage it for a few minutes (it vibrates your eyeballs, so go gently)and I think that is what makes my skin look so fresh and youthful, the massager which vibrates all the cells and brings the blood to your face. Does make the skin look more fresh and rested. The Lancone is just prepare the face with a special pad, rinse it off, put on the glycolic lotion, rise off and then put on the moisturizer. Tonight is the first night I've used Ponds new 3 step Professional at home anti-wrinkle kit. I'm a little disappointed as my face still feel rather sticky and I don't like that feel. Lancones absorbs instantly no greasy or sticky feel. If I had to choose it would be Lancone's Resurfacing for about 30 bucks at Nordstrom or Macy. BUT what I really think is, you could probably get the same effect if you used Susan's massager (or one similar)with good hydrant moisturizer (one that you like to use)if you could stand the vibration for about 5 minutes twice a day! I'm not a believer in anti-wrinkle stuff, I think it is a scam, but I like to try the products within these kits, Lancone's moisturizer was really good. I am a Ponds userer from way back so I was a bit disappointed in this sticky feel, which is still sticky after 50 minutes, I'm not sure which of the products gave the sticky feel, the exfoliate, the glycolic pad or the moisturizer. I think I'll try just one different one each night to see which makes me feel sticky then I'll not use that portion of the kit. The Ponds was $19.88, Susan Lucci was $30 and the Lancone was $39. I've seen similar facial massagers like susan's in other microdermabrasions kits in the drug stores. I haven't tried them all yet but the Susan's massager with the removable sponge head to massage the exfoliate into the skin with does make the skin feel good afterwards. Just my experience so far.
