I've used it. There was a sample in my magazine. I liked it . . . I'm not sure exactly what microdermabrasion is supposed to do, but it made my face look nice. The only problem I really had was that my face felt kind of raw after I used it.

I'm really thinking about trying this. I saw it at the grocery store for only $20something and L'oreal is the only drugstore brand that has impressive products considering the price, imo.

I used it and it was okay. I felt as though I get the same results when I exfoliate.

i don't really know what the end result is supposed to be, but i really like this stuff. i have very bad skin, and after i use this stuff it makes it feel as soft as a baby's bottom. wish i could use it everyday, but the instructions say only twice a week

I have been using this product for over a month and I highly recommend it. It deeply exfoliates my skin and gives it a nice healthy glow.

ok what exactly is a microdermabrasion suppose to do anyway?
I know it scrubs away dead skin so ur skin will look less down n sallow

but does it also
minimizes pores? reduce oiliness (I hope)? reduce redness (also hopes)

well this is more than one mounth that i'm using "dermabrasion" of Loréal and it's just amazing,my skin is now very smooth like baby's skin,and you can see the difference only after the first using,it's doing more than only pelling,this is at laest what i feel about my skin,the pores are not dilated any more,and it's too fresh

Hi foxy, you are welcome.


Actually,i have a very sensitive and mixt skin,oily in the forheah,but very dry around the erbrows ,i had before some "acne" but not now anymore,i'm using "Diane35" a contraceptive medecine gaven by my dermathologue,which is against acné too.


In the beganning,i used "microdermabrasion" of Loréal twice a week,but i felt that my skin became a few dry,so now i'm using it only once a week,and it's perfect ,try to use it once a week if it's good,try twice and see the difference.


good luck

I have been using it for awhile now and I love it! It makes your skin so smooth. I have dry skin that is not very sensitive so I am not sure how it would work on other skin types. I use it 2-3 times a week.

Well i've been using it twice a week for about a month or so now...uhm i'm not sure if its helping or not because i've still got weird skin, I haven't had really dry skin for a while though so it must be doing something right. I was worried it might hurt my skin but it seems to be gentle. BUT ON FEET ITS AMAZING. Seriously use it on feet and elbows..its like a miracle worker.

I have "tough" or "insensitive" skin... usually. I can use Apricot Scrub, no problem. tea tree oil doesn't sting. But L'oreal Dermabrasion made my skin feel awful. It felt raw and it was red... it was kind of painful, too. I didn't really like it. I'll stick with baking soda and Cetaphil for exfoliation.
