Love: Kiehl’s Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion


I’m not a big fan of Micro-Dermabrasion per se – it makes my sensitive skin totally freak out and I’ve had more than one cosmetic surgeon tell me horror stories of its cons – but Kiehl’s key exfoliator with the popular process in its name is an absolute star.
The epidermal skin-texturizing treatment is an advanced formulation that has a highly effective abrading quality on skin's surface, but is also gentle enough for use on skin like mine. It gives an immediate skin-smoothing effect that leaves you with a feel akin to a baby’s proverbial, and with regular, tri-weekly use, helps to visibly minimize discolorations and small marks on face, hands, and décolleté. Over time, it’s promised that the look of facial lines will be reduced and skin texture significantly smoother and clearer, while the appearance of pore size is diminished. I like the fact that you can use it as little as you like if you have sensitive skin, but still feel its effects and facilitate the absorption of topical skin treatments to maximize their efficacy. The non-nonsense “polishing” cream 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, so any redness remaining afterwards doesn’t hang around for long. I used this at night before a hydrating mask with awesome results, but if you use it in the morning make sure you apply a decent sunblock before heading outside to protect your skin from even limited exposure to the sun.
