Olay Microdermabrasion & Peel System (Regenerist kit)

Hi everyone! Today I want to write about two products that I have been loving for a while. They come in a kit because they work as a pair.
We all want our skin to look as flawless as possible. We are all makeup lovers and know how important it is to take good care of our skin. Applying makeup is much easier and it looks more natural. Unfortunately, busy way of living, the food we eat, lack of sleep, stress and years going by, don't really help us with that. That is why exfoliating is so important. By exfoliating your skin you remove dead skin cells from the top layer allowing new skin to shine through. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This is a two step treatment.

 First step is to apply micro-dermabrasion beauty treatment with derma crystals to a clean and dry face (about a quarter size). You will feel the crystals on your skin but it is not too rough. You should massage your face in circular motion for a minute and then go to the second step. Take the mini peeling activating serum (about half of a little spoon or quarter size) and put it on top of the dermabrasion treatment. This one is like a clear fluid. It changes the consistency of the treatment below and foams up a little bit. If you don't feel like it changed it, add some more. Massage that for another minute and then rinse off with warm water.
YOU WILL NOT BELIVE HOW SOFT AND SMOOTH YOUR FACE IS! I can not tell enough about this one.

It is recommended to use it twice a week (which I do) for best results and you have enough product for 8 weeks of use (at least, mine lasts even longer).

This is how the company describes it:
This microdermabrasion and peel system resurfaces skin and improves circulation. This two-step system diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and visibly improves skin tone. Contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids. For best results use twice a week. Kit includes 8 weeks of treatments.

Microdermabrasion Treatment with Derma-Crystals (Net wt 2.2oz/64g): Peg-8, Sodium Bicarbonate, Silica Silylate, Polysorbate 20, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Fragrance, Yellow 5, Red 40. Peel Activator Serum (2fl ox/59mL): Water, Sodium Lactate, Lactic Acid, Butylene Glycol, DMDM Hydantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Disodium EDTA.

Since this product contains alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which can increase skin's sensitivity to the sun, you should be careful. Use a sunscreen and don't overdo with sun bathing. Exposing your skin to the sun too much is not recommendable either way, with or without this treatment.

I bought this kit on Cheapsmells (click for link). It is not currently available but I think you can find it in the stores. I paid 10.25 Euros for it. I think that price is reasonable. Cheapsmells is a great online shop with reasonable shipping (starts at 2 Euros), very safe, with great customer service, offers PayPal and items come in two/max three weeks to Croatia. I am not affiliated in any way with them but wanted to let you know about them. They offer a huge choice of perfumes and when on sale, their prices are unbelivable.

So, my verdict is short and clear. This one is a keeper!

What do you say? Tried it? Want to try it? Any recommendations?

Love, beautyandbrains007
