Hello everyone 🙂
I have been gone for long! Well, 3 days is too long for me 😛 Work got a wee bit hectic this week.
Today I’m reviewing a product that has been due since a really long time now. It’s the Votre Microdermabrasion Gel. Now you’ll say “What is this Microdermabrasion Gel?” just like how reacted when I got this in my Fab Bag.So here’s what a Microdermabrasion Gel does…
Microdermabrasion is a light, non-surgical procedure that physically exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells from your epidermis. It helps with tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne and acne scarring. The treatment leaves your skin instantly smoother. By gently exfoliating the epidermis, microdermabrasion increases cellular turnover, along with improving the appearance of sun damage.

My take on Votre Microdermabrasion Gel
When this came along in my Fab Bag, I was clueless as to what it was. 😛 But a little research made me really happy! A gel that helps reduce spots or acne scars. Wow. ♥
Packaging: This comes in a plastic tub that is sheer so you can actually see how much product is left. I feel the light plastic material could have been replaced with a better one for the price tag it has. 😐 Travel friendly as I haven’t faced any leakage of product during travels.But the only downside being since it’s a tub, you need to dip your hand inside which is really unhygeinic. 😐 I usually sanitize my hands before I use any products which come in tub-like packaging.
Texture: The texture of this Votre Microdermabrasion Gel is slimey and gel like in texture. It smells a little soapy and has tiny granules that help in exfoliation. The granules aren’t harsh at all. They are very mild and exfoliate well. All you have to do is take some amount of the gel and gently rub it in circular motions all over your face for a few minutes.
Results: This Votre Microdermabrasion Gel is my HG( Holy Grail) product for exfoliation! ♥ For reference, I have combination sensitive skin. I have used many exfoliation packs but this beauty is just extraordinary! It makes my skin super soft after exfoliation and my skin feels like an infant’s skin after using this one 😛 No kidding! As for its claims, I have been using it for 2 months now and I love how it has gulped up all my scars. I wouldn’t say all of it but yes,my skin feels much better and clearer now. Please note that it might not be only because of this as I use my CTM routine products as well. I use this twice a week since I have sensitive skin and it works fine for me. If you have whiteheads, it would scrub it all off after exfoliation. Blackheads, not to a great extent. But I get that squeaky clean feeling when I use this on my face. I love LOVE this product and I cannot ever part with this ♥
