Review: Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish (available at Ulta)
29 Jan 2015
When Neostrata asks if you’d like to try one of their new products, you say yes! 🙂 I swear, I’ve never tried a Neostrata product I didn’t like. Neostrata is sold online, at salons, dermatologists’ offices and you can also find it at Ulta and at Ulta.com. It’s a skin care line developed by dermatologists and is highly regarded by skin care experts around the world. I tried their products before and I especially love their Exuviance line, which is targeted at reducing lines and wrinkles, increasing firmness, smooth texture and even skin tone.
Lately, my main skin care goal is to improve my skin texture (my pores are very visible) and get rid of my acne scars. I have come a long way, but I would really love the texture of my skin to be smoother and even! Don’t we all?
Neostrata has recently come out with a new product in their Exuviance line: the Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish. This is described as a gentle polish, NOT a rough scrub. Like, I said: Exuviance has never disappointed me, I couldn’t wait to try this!
Exuviance’s Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish has a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzyme rejuvenators, which explains the ‘triple’ in its name.
â€‹â˜» Professional Grade Crystals smooth skin
â€‹â˜» Glycolic Acid and Papaya Enzyme help dissolve impurities, loosen dead skin cells
â€‹â˜» Polishes skin to a gorgeous, silky softness for a brighter complexion with a reduced appearance of pores and dark spots
I’ve been using it for two weeks now and I come to you today with my review. First, here’s the description as found on the website:
â€‹â€‹â€‹What it is:â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹ â€‹ â€‹

â€‹â€‹â€‹My thoughts:â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹ â€‹
I’ve been applying this Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish on my face twice a week, on Wednesday and on Sunday (I always set specific days for treatments, so I don’t forget!). I wash my face as usual and then I apply of thin layer. It’s a paste, it almost looks like tooth paste; there are no beads or anything. On the website it says to lightly massage it in a circular motion for 30 seconds, avoiding the eye area. I’ve been doing that and I leave it on my skin for 2 minutes. Then I rinse my face, dry it and continue with my serum.
â€‹I used way too much for this picture! You only need a third of this. â€‹â€‹
It’s super easy to use, because you don’t need to scrub or anything. Very quick to use. Just massage it in a little bit and leave it on for 2 minutes and your face feels super smooth like a baby’s bum! There’s no other way to say it..haha! Smooth, bright and fresh! The best thing about it is that you don’t have to scrub your face, it does it all for you, so it’s less time consuming. Just leave it on and do something else (floss your teeth, for example), while the product does its thing. It smells good too. 😉
I took some ‘before’ pics yesterday and in about 6 months I’ll write a full updated review showing you my progress. I’m already seeing a difference (after just 4 uses), so I’m excited to continue using this product!
â€‹â€‹â€‹Where to buy:â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹
You can find the Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish by Neostrata at Neostrata.com and at Ulta and Ulta.com. You can also find it at select dermatologists. On Neostrata’s website you can find a store locator, to make it easier. It retails for $72 (2.6 oz), which is a little expensive, but trust me…it’s worth every penny! Can’t wait to show you guys my before & after pics. 🙂
