Personal Microderm Device – My experience

pmd-personal-microderm-device

It’s been 3 weeks since I started using a Personal Microderm Device. I remember when I first heard about it after one of the seasons of The Bachelor ended (yes, back in the day I used to watch that show), and thought to myself – Wow! That’s a neat product. I am so excited to actually own it and share my thoughts and experience with you. And as you may have guessed, this is a sponsored post, but I wouldn’t be sharing it, if I didn’t think you’d find this review useful, and as always – all opinions are my own!

So what is PMD Personal Microderm device?

“PMD is an amazing device that helps women uncover their most vibrant, radiant complexion through an easy series of treatments. It replicates the treatment given by professionals by using the same Aluminum Oxide crystals on the patented spinning discs. The hand-held tool uses vacuum action to gently pull skin towards the disc for optimum exfoliation. Once it removes the dead skin cells and reveals a clear, healthy complexion, your skin is able to absorb products much more effectively. It works will all skin types and unclogs pores, smooths, evens tone, reduces blemishes and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” 

How do you use it?

This is a very helpful video that talks about the device. It covers everything from plugging it in, to cleaning it, to avoiding the eye area. It talks about the do’s and don’ts and helps you find your way to a clear complexion.

How do I use it?

I use my device once a week, usually on Saturday night, before bed. I like using my device at night, because it allows me not to worry whether I am wearing enough sunscreen or not. Plus I use a thicker, richer cream at night time, and I want that to absorb quickly.
The first time I used the device was a little funny and awkward, it almost felt like I was vacuuming my face. But I got the hang of it soon enough. And no, it doesn’t hurt at all!
I am still on my white training disk and am loving it. I will probably replace it after one more treatment and switch to the green one.
I have only tried PMD Personal Microderm Device on my face, with an exception of testing it out on my arm. I am kind of nervous and excited to try it on my elbows or heels.

Have I noticed any results?

Absolutely! I noticed that my skin is a lot smoother, especially on my cheeks (that’s always been my problem area). My acne scars heal faster, and if I pop a pimple (let’s be honest here! Who doesn’t do that?) it goes away faster too.
I am paying special attention to my nose when I treat my skin, I am really hoping it will help with black heads!

Skincare with PMD

As interesting as it’s going to sound, PMD offers a 3 step skin care system along with the device. Having worked in cosmetics, I am a huge fan of a 3 step system. So that definitely earned them some points with me!

Special Offer 

Not only am I sharing my experience and review with you today, but I am also excited to share this discount code! It’s good through the end of May and will help you save on your own PMD Personal Microderm Device. Just enter pmdbeauty25 at checkout!

I am definitely planning on using my device for a couple more weeks, and then taking a break. I want to make sure I do what’s best for my skin. I will probably cut back on the microdermabrasion during the summer, since I spend a lot of time outside.

Overall the device is easy to use, it’s effective and extremely helpful. I can see it becoming an important part of my weekly skincare routine.

Estee’ Lauder Idealist

I did it, I fell a victim to the spell of EL and the Idealist, but I didn’t get the Even Skin Tone Illuminator, I got the Pore Minimizing one instead! It looks like this:

So, what does it do?

This fast-acting serum delivers our most dramatic skin resurfacing benefits-more efficiently than ever before.

With Idealist, your skin looks and feels like your ideal skin:

Virtually poreless.

  • Pores appear 1/3 smaller-instantly.
  • See a 69% reduction in the look of pores in just 4 weeks.

Unbelievably soft and smooth.

  • Repairs the look of uneven skin texture,

flakiness and roughness.

  • Smooth it on and instantly enjoy that soft, seamless, silky feeling you love.

Incredibly clear and even-toned.

  • See more clarity and luminosity.
  • Gives skin an overall more even tone.

(description from EL website – there is a description in Russian below which is more detailed and explanatory – and I personally like it more, if you can read Russian go see for yourself 🙂 )

Now I have tried this one on many times while bored at work 😉 and decided to splurge on a product that I knew worked and that I needed, especially with summer right around the corner!

And thanks to my Macy’s discount I got the large one for the price of small one! I  can’t pick mine up until tomorrow, but the post just couldn’t wait!

Have you splurged on anything lately?

Cheers,

Я пала жертвой Эсте Лаудер и заказала себе Идеалист! Правда я не стала заказывать себе тот, который выравнивает цвет лица, я заказала тот, который сужает поры! Выглядит он немного по-другому (см. фото выше).

Что же делает это средство?

Сыворотка Idealist выравнивает тон кожи, уменьшает видимость черных точек, закупоренных пор и “микротеней”. Кожа светится здоровьем и выглядит помолодевшей и сияющей.

Всего через 4 недели самые передовые и быстродействующие ингредиенты обеспечивают великолепный результат, значительно уменьшая видимость пор и даря ощущение мягкости и гладкости – кожа выглядит здоровой и ухоженной.

  • Улучшает текстуру кожи, исчезают шелушение, краснота, неровности. Заметно улучшает цвет лица, со временем кожа приобретает безупречный, ухоженный вид.
  • Тройное содержание глюкозамина и эксклюзивный экстракт каштана мягкого действия помогают коже избавиться от сухих, тусклых, омертвевших клеток. Глюкозамин – производное сахара, обладающий уникальными отшелушивающими свойствами. Этот компонент ослабляет межклеточные связи, помогая коже естественным образом избавляться от омертвевших клеток.
  • Уникальный разглаживающий полимер мгновенно делает незаметными несовершенства поверхности кожи – морщинки и огрубевшие участки. Легкая текстура позволяет сделать поры совершенно незаметными, при этом не забивая их.
  • Экстракты морской водоросли и карликовой пальмы контролируют выделение жира на поверхности кожи.
  • Запатентованная технология Bubbles TechnologyTM создает необыкновенное ощущение при нанесении: Idealist скользит по коже и обеспечивает ей ощущение свежести по мере того, как микропузырьки преобразуются в воздушно-бархатистую текстуру.
(Русское описание взято с русского сайта компании Estee’ Lauder – как вы можете понять – оно отличается от английского, более детальное и понятное!)
Я несколько раз пробовала это средство на работе (от скуки) – и в конце концов решила на него раскошелиться!

Ну и ко всему прочему, с моей скидкой и специальной акцией в Macy’s я купила большой флакон этого средства по цене маленького! Ну и моя подруга как обычно добавила мне пробников, но о них в другом посте!

А на что вы раскошелились в этом месяце?

Всем отличного дня!
