Great Microdermabrasion from Skin Nutrition with Phytomins Refining Face Polish

Just like the skin care gadgets, I am always on the hunt for great microdermabrasion-type of products. I have a feeling if I actually went and got a microdermabrasion treatment at the dermatologist, I would be in for a much different treatment, but so far I am good, and the home products suit me fine. What makes a good microdermabrasion cream, to me, are the texture and the density of the grains that abrade your face – I like them very fine and very plentiful. If there are too few and they are too big, I categorize it as more of a classic exfoliator – does that make sense? To me an exfoliator is more creamy and less grainy than a microdermabrasion cream.

This is the Skin Nutrition with Phytomins Refining Face Polish. It is a balance between a microdermabrasion cream and an exfoliator, leaning more towards microdermabrasion. The grains are very fine, which I love, and they are suspended in a sort of a combination between a gel and a cream, with a scent that is very vaguely citrus, not unpleasantly citrus at all (not a big fan of citrus). When you are done, you feel like you have had a good scrubbing, which is absolutely the important part, eh? Here is what they say:

Skin Nutrition with Phytomins Refining Face Polish is a non-irritating professional-style polish that can be used daily for professional micro-dermabrasion type results. It contains Derma-Sphere scrub particles, hollow, round sponges, that simply lift and remove pore-clogging impurities and dead cells. Their smooth surfaces never tear or abrade skin. Skin Nutrition with Phytomins Refining Face Polish contains L-Carnosine, an extra potent peptide that prevents collagen cross-linking which leads to the loss of elasticity that causes wrinkles. Vitamin C in the formula boosts skin brightness. Rosewood essential oil, a natural antiseptic and bactericide, is useful in treating acne and can be used on even the most sensitive skin. It helps stimulate cell regeneration and diminish wrinkles.

I guess the Vitamin C is what I feel smells slightly citrus-y. Good stuff – and the best part is that it is not expensive, which is unusual in the microdermabrasion arena, where you can easily spend $50 and up on a product. This is a whopping $7.99 and can be purchased at Have you tried it? What do you think?

Skin Nutrition with Phytomins some other great looking products in their very affordable line, some that have caught my eye are the BotanicaLift Face Serum ($18.99), and the Firming Eye Cream ($16.99). Check ‘em out. :)

      I use the face polish several times a week and love the results! It is not overly abrasive but has enough scrubbing action leaving my skin feeling smooth but not dry. And the price, well it is quite a deal.
      You also want to check out the Skin Nutrition Recovery Serum. I use it every morning and evening. I am in the sun quite a bit (I do wear 30 spf) and it really keeps my skin soft, smooth, and hydrated. Its one of my favorite things in my bathroom! It is also great to put on after using the face polish or any other microderm treatment.

      Thanks for the recommendation, Janet – I sure will look into it. You are exactly right about the face polish – I don’t mind *overly* abrasive myself, but I hate it when they aren’t abrasive enough – and this one is. Its a great deal for the price, especially when you compare it to other microdermabrasion creams. Thanks so much for the feedback, Janet!

      I have used this for over a year and recently stopped because of some weird reason(unknown to me). My face was flawless with no blemishes, evenly toned and smoothe from this skin care wash. I used it even everyday. Now that I’m not using it my face is breaking out horrible and just feels a mess. I’m going to stock up on this so I dont run out and get lazy with ordering it online. Back to being beautiful:)
