any really good (price around 20 - 35 dollars) exfoliators out there that remove flakiness? my skin tends to flake around the nose and the between the eybrows.

A very cheap and non abrasive (in the sense that it isn't like ground almond shells or something ) scrub is a combination of cetaphil or some mild moisturizing cleanser and some baking soda. Baking soda dissolves so it shouldn't cause tears in your skin but it has a pretty rough texture to help flake off dead skin. It is worth a try. I have been using it for a while and it helps get flakes off...

oh this reminds me of mixing sugar with a creamy cleanser, I heard it's good for dry skin because the sugar first exfoliates then melts and moisturize the skin. I've never tried it myself, though

I'm currently using Never A Dull Moment from Origins, it's quite nice and I love the smell, yummy
I also use Lancome Comforting Exfoliating Cream, it's very gently, but does the exfoliating work very well and leaves the skin silky smooth.

I think that the one in the jar has lanolin, not the one in the tube. That is why we never sell the jar one-ever.

Well, actually it is, practically is the closest you can get to an at home microdermabrasion. Because it is so intense, you wont need to use it that often, of course, it is suggested to be used once a week, even though not all skins can handle that much power. I suggest this because of personal experience and of course the good feedback from customers

I'm really interested in this one and want to try due to good reviews.
but at the same time I hear people saying that it makes their skins all red and everything, and I got kinda scared, you know.
I have clear & smooth skin, and I usually use exfoliators once a week, so I'm just thinking if using Micro D once a week as well would be too harsh on my skin.

I suggest you to go to Estee Lauder and ask for a sample of the product. It's better for you because you dont have to spend the 45 dollars on it, and you really see if its going to cause any allergy on your skin. HTH

Well, honestly, It won't perfect your skin 100%. You will see a really nice difference, like, a rosy glow, less flaky , patchy or rough skin. Of course if you use SPF and take good care of your skin, using also Idealist skin refinisher, you will achieve better results than using the MicroD alone. The microD will do what any other scrub will do, but faster, and rough. If you use the Idealist after, which will act as a desensitivizer ( I just invented another word) meaning that it will make skin stronger, it will reduce the redness, and will make skin less sensitive to products or free radicals on the air.

I really like LUSH's "Angels on Bare Skin" facial scrub. It's got ground almonds (the nut part, *not* the shell!) and lavendar oil and Kaolin clay for scrubbing, moisturizing, and blotting up excess oil, respectively. Plus lavendar is a mild antibiotic, which is important for those of us who are blackhead and pimple prone.

It is very mild, and not very expensive. A $6.50 tub of this stuff will last you 3-6 months, and if you don't like it, you're not out a whole lot.

Their other one, "Herbalism" is milder yet--excellent for very sensitive skins--but it has chunks of rose-petal in it and doesn't go on as smoothly, unless they've re-formulated it since the time I tried it. The scent is excellent, though. Kind of grassy and floral.
