Give Your Skin A Smooth Microdermabrasion-like Scrub With Derma E

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub

Thanks to exfoliating toners and serums, I find myself using physical scrubs less and less. Chemical exfoliants do a much better job anyway and they’re less abrasive on the skin. Having said that, I must admit that once in a while, I do like give my skin a gentle scrub-down using cleansers with scrubby bits. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed ever since I started using skincare donkey years ago and it’s a habit I can’t seem to shake for good. πŸ˜›

The last time I discovered a really good, almost microdermabrasion-like scrub was the HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish and Plump. I’ve since discovered another good one that doesn’t require two steps (and a hefty price tag) like the HydroPeptide. The Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub delivers the same results too!

This salon-grade, award-winning formula contains Dead Sea Salt and volcanic sand to effectively buff away dry, aged cells and reveal plump, glowing skin. Natural citrus extracts impart a delightfully fresh, sorbet-like scent.

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub Ingredients

What is it with fancy “microdermabrasion-ish” scrubs that they have to come in jars, eh? As luxe-looking as they are in their heavy glass jars, give them to me in easy-to-use squeezy tubes any time! Jars are fiddly to use in a shower, especially when you use a standalone shower and it doesn’t have shelves or shower caddies. Here’s a tip, beauty brands: there’s nothing wrong with a simple, squeezy tube. πŸ˜‰

The scrub has minute beads that feel like extra-fine sand. Dead Sea salt and volcanic sand? Fancy! πŸ˜› Thankfully, it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. I don’t press on my skin when I’m applying a scrub; a very gentle, slow and light massage of the skin will do. When I rinse my skin with water, it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry nor tight. What’s left after the scrubbing is very smooth skin, which I love.

Even though this doesn’t feel like an abrasive scrub, I’d still recommend that it only be used once a week, if you’re still into using a physical scrub like me. On days that you’re using an exfoliating toner or serum, please give this a miss. You don’t want to over-exfoliate your skin! (Paris B has a great post on what to do if you do over-exfoliate your skin.)

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub

All in all, this is a very decent scrub. It’s a lot cheaper than the HydroPeptide one too and it gave me similar results.

Derma E’s Microdermabrasion Scrub retails at AUS$29.95 and is available at Priceline pharmacies nationwide.

What I like about it: Smells deliciously citrus-y, very fine beads that don’t feel abrasive on the skin (only if one doesn’t go to town with all that scrubbing!), leaves skin feeling oh so smooth.

What I do not like about it: Not a fan of scrubs that come in jars. God forbid if I either drop this heavy jar on my foot in the slippery shower and it smashes into pieces when it meets the floor!
