Product Being Reviewed

Today I am doing a product review of Elba n.5 - Microdermabrasion cream.

Review Disclosure 

I was given a free sample of this product in exchange for an honest review.

What is microdermabrasion?

According to WebMD, "microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed on the skin. It works best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots." These treatments are done by a dermatologist.

However, you can do at-home microdermabrasion using a cream or kits. Elba n.5 - Microdermabrasion Cream is an at-home treatment.

Why Use Microdermabrasion?

I have to say that I don't exfoliate my face as often as I should. I use makeup remover wipes in the evening and follow with moisturizer and call it good most evenings. In the morning I wash my face while bathing or showering and follow up with a moisturizer with sunscreen. But I have to admit this doesn't do a good job of removing the dead skin cells or help much with clogged pores. I was also anxious to see if an at-home microdermabrasion cream would help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so I was happy to give the Elba n.5 - Microdermabrasion cream a try.

Product Packaging

Ok, now for the review. Let me start with packaging. The cream came sealed in clear plastic with no outer box other than the box it was shipped in. I am ok with this, less cardboard in the landfills. The instructions for use are included on the label and are easy enough to read. I noticed on the label that the product is made in the U.S.A.

Ease of Use

I used the microdermabrasion cream in the morning after cleansing my face. I applied it, as directed, to my moist face in circling motions. It felt gritty, as I expected it to, but it wasn't painful. I didn't need to use much of the cream to get good coverage, and it rinsed away easily. After the cream was rinsed off my face, I dried my face with a towel.

Results

Right away my face felt much softer and smoother. And my skin didn't feel tight after using the microdermabrasion cream.

I can't say that I saw a noticeable difference in the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles. However I think that as an exfoliater it works very well which I am sure affects the appearance of wrinkles over time.
