Review on Kiehls products -Part 1 ~Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion

Hello there. I was away recently and didn't manage to update as much as I wanted to.
Anyway, I will be putting up a few separate post on the recent Kiehls products that I have purchased  in stages.

I am not an expert or pro in this as the others, but I am always delighted to share new stuff that I have tried that works for me (or those that doesn't) with you all. Do give me feedback if you have any opinions or tips on the reviewed products.

So, I was in Kiehl's the other day and I was looking at their facial scrub range. The SA tried 2 different scrub range on me, one on my left hand (Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub) and the other on the right (Epidermal Re-Texturizing-Mircro Dermabrasion, gosh, it's such a mouthful to even type it. Shall call it Derma.)

I ended buying Derma because even though it is much smaller in size and more exp, I find that it makes my hand whiter, firmer and smoother looking then. Also, as you know I am pretty lazy in this scrubbing/mask thingy hence, I won't be doing it often.
Also, Derma are part of the Dermatologist Solutions range, relying on phamaceutical expertise and botanical knowledge, which is targated to visibly help improve the healthy appearance of the skin.
(dermatologist..... perhaps it's safer for my sensitive skin then, I figured upon purchase)

What does it do?
Well, in a nutshell, it claims to :-
1) Give immediate skin-smoothing effect
2) Helps to visibly minimize discolorations and small marks
3) Over time, the look of facial lines is reduced and skin texture is significantly smoother and clearer
4) Appearance of pore size is diminished.

I have been using it for like 4-5 times already and yes, it does really gives me the skin smoothing effect. You know, like after you went for a great facial, your face felt so soft and smooth like baby skin, and felt like keep on touching it?

My pores really did appear smaller (not diminished though), but I find it's easier to remove my white head thereafter and it does not reappear as fast. No other scrubs have assist in removing my white heads before, so thumbs up for this.

As for the discoloration and facial lines, I have yet to notice any difference .

But do take note that your skin might get a bit reddish or sensitive after using the scrub, hence it is stated even in the box to use suncreen to protect your skin as the scrub might be able rougher then your normal scrubs    -remember to be gentle, unless you have mega thick skin :p
(I personally use it at night once a week or twice, so that my skin can better absorp and maximise my application of other skin products efficiently).

#Derma is formulated with "diatomatious earth"– crushed microshells derived from ocean sand – as well as a powerful ingredient used by dermatologists to perform micro-dermabrasion procedures. The formula further helps to soothe skin with a blend of Willow Herb and nurturing sea algaenates.#

The tube comes in 75ml size and that will take me like more then a year to finish it, hence it is quite value for money actually.

What facial scrubs are your current HG?
