Questions & Answers for Dr. Brandt Skincare microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

Question
How often are you to use the product? Do you use it after washing your face?

answer 1
Yes Dr. Brandt recommends you wash you face first, especially if you wear makeup and/or have an oily or problematic skin condition.

For normal skin no more than every 3-4 days or twice a week
For dry/sensitive skin once every 7-10 days
Very dry/sensitive/rosacea prone skin every 2 weeks.

Over-exfoliating can cause imbalances in your ph levels and lipids, which can result in excessive oil, dryness, breakouts and/or sensitivity.

Yes, I use it after washing with a mild cleanser. The package indicates to only use this product 1-2 times per week, leaving 3 days rest between treatments. I think once a week is sufficient for my sensitive skin.

Use it once weekly after you wash your face. Don't massage it in too hard, be gentle.

I use this stuff twice a week on a clean face and follow with a nice creamy cleanser and then my moisturizer. It makes my face feel so smooth and silky because it allows my cleanser to better penetrate my skin and absorbs my moisturizer better. I have found that I only need to use it twice a week and the results seem to last through the following couple days. If your skin gets extremely dry or flaky (like mine does in the winter) you could bump it up to three times a week. I have used it that often without any irritation. Try it out and see how it works for you!

I would use it often. But its not recommended for every day. Maybe 2 times a week. Its best used at night to help the cell renewal process.

You can use the product up to two times a week. With at least 3 days in between each to avoid rubbing your skin too raw. Use the product when your skin is clean.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion vs. Philosophy Microdelivery Peel?
I've been using Philosophy's Microdelivery Peel for years now and love it. I'm just wonder, for those of you that have tried both, which is better? What's the difference in results? Thanks!!

I have used both and Philosophy is WAY better. Dr. Brandt is drying and can sting a little. Philosophy has vitamin C in it, which is anti-aging and brightening. Dr. Brandt doesn't have that.

Not even a comparison. I've used philosophy and was NOT impressed years ago--not even a little. In fact, I didn't even use the whole bottle of the peel. This showed a difference in my skin right away--more than anything else I've tried.

I have tried both and think Brandt's is better. If you have any breakouts this one clears them up fast. I think my skin looks better for hours after as well. Both are great products-why not get a sample next time and try it before buying? That is how I tried it. I thought the salesgirl was exaggerating and I tried a sample. Now, the day I run out I buy more.

NOOOOO!!! You can not use this product near your eyes!!! definitly NOT on your eyelids. You "have" to avoid the whole eye area and use it in little circular motions slowly for 1 to 2 minutes and then rinse w/ water.

You should not use this on your eyelids at all. It may be your eye cream is too rich for you. I'd try another eye cream first but never use on your eyelids.

answer 3
No this should not go on the eyelids. This product would be highly irritating to your skin. If you have white bumps you do not need an exfoliator, you will need to see a dermatologist or perhaps consider changing the products you currently use on the area.

answer 4
Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion is to be used on the face but not the area surrounding the eyes, under eye area or eye lid. i think it would be best to not waste your money on this product since it is not ment to be used on the very sensitive eye area since it is a microdermabrasion, which are a bit evasive.

answer 4
i do not suggest this for really sensitive skin because you are removing dead skin cells-- which means roughing away skin from your sensitive face. It is a highly gentle exfoliater so if you do want to exfoliate i recommend this over others but i would not do it weekly but rather biweekly and do not rub in hard!

can I use for young skin (age 18)?

answer 1
Of course you can use this on young skin. i cant believe people are trying to tell you otherwise. this is not some peptide formula or an antiaging product. this is simply an exfoliator, and everyone no matter what age should exfoliate.
but it is more important to exfoliate when your older because your skin does not exfoliate naturally as fast as it would when your younger.

but im 19 and i just ordered it from dr b's website because i won 100$ from his mothers day facebook contest. although me and my mom are probably both gong to use it if she wants some.

and you should order whatever you think your skin needs.for example im 19, 20 in a few months, and after surfing for multiple years all day every day without sunscreen my skin has taken a beating. using dr perricones acel glutathine cream has helped restore my skins natural glow and plumpness.
its meant for older people and can be used as a preventative product, but if your skin has aged early then heck, why not try it. especially from sephora where you can return the product.
i wonder what happens to the products you return though, hopefully they dont get wasted

I think that depends on your skin's needs. If you have oily/combination or congested skin that would benefit from using it then yes. If you have normal skin that's in good shape, you probably don't need it just yet.

Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Cream gently yet thoroughly exfoliates the skin, which will help to promote even skin tone and texture, and stimulate cell turnover to fade discoloration and scarring.

Make sure to use a sunscreen daily to prevent future discoloration.

I would go with what the actual sample packet said. Usually products like this put just enough fragrance in to counteract the natural small of the ingredients which is usually not appealing.
