Review: Neutrogena Pure Glow Home Microdermabrasion System - Home Kit


As some of you will know from my Project: Face Sudocrem Facemask post, I used to be blessed with amazing skin. However, life and acne and my previous ignorance to having a good skincare routine got in the way and ruined it. Waah. Due to this, I’m always on the lookout for things that will help get rid of scars and blemishes and prevent them from appearing in the future. 

I’m a complete Groupon NUT and although there are always deals for microdermabrasion procedures, I was a little dubious as I was under the misconception it would hurt. Queue Neutrogena Pure Glow Home Microdermabrasion System – mouthful and a half!


What Neutrogena say: Reveal your skin's healthy, radiant glow with the Neutrogena PureGlow MicroDermabrasion System. Cosmetic professional level microdermabrasion effects from the comfort of your own home with clinically proven skin benefits in just four weeks. The system has three components, which work in unison to create dramatic effects on the skin's texture and glow. From day one, it enhances surface cell turnover for smoother, softer skin. From the end of the first week, it boosts skin clarity for visibly brighter skin that glows with health. From the fourth week, it diminishes the appearance of pores and fine lines. 

What I say: When I first used the system I may have gone a bit mad with it and applied it with a lot more pressure that I should have. Whilst the formula is very gritty (it has the same texture of blended caster sugar and butter when you make a cake!), it almost feels exactly the same as exfoliating. However, the results make exfoliating look like child’s play. After the first time my skin instantly looked brighter and felt so smooth.

After using it 3-4times a week for a few weeks, my blemishes and scars have reduced quite dramatically and my skin is definitely looking a lot more radiant. Now I’m not going to put it all down to the Pure Glow system, I’m sure it’s a combination of my improved skincare regime and using this system regularly. 

My only issues with it are that after I use it I find that it does take a fair amount of rinsing to get the crystals off completely, which is doubly annoying since there’s a slight residue left behind that the crystals somewhat cling to! And also the fact that some of the crystal cream works its way to the edge of the foam head whilst you’re using it, so you have to make sure you wipe the edge every 30 seconds or so. The results of the system really outweigh these minor downsides though, so I’ll take the good with the bad!

 You can currently buy this in Boots for £25.52, however I managed to get mine on eBay – a steal at £12 with free P&P.
