Beauty Test Drive: A Personal Microderm Kit That Makes Skin So Soft

As I have mentioned before, I have a little bit of an adult acne situation. Even worse (and if you’re my mom, or squeamish, don’t read this part), I tend to pick at my acne, inciting red marks, scars and flaky skin.

The Personal Microderm, despite its generic name, allows you to give yourself a microdermabrasion treatment at home, which sloughs off the dead top layer of skin to reveal the soft, dewy stuff underneath. The easy-to-use tool comes with a variety of detachable heads so you can use on your face or your body with ease. After one use, I was hooked; my skin felt softer and my face seemed to actually glow. The biggest problem with the Personal Microderm? You’re going to want to use it five times a day (and you really, really shouldn’t). [$169.99, Dermstore] Keep reading »
