User Review: JamieO Crystal Radiance Microdermabrasion System

When a box of JamieO skin care arrived on my desk, I couldn't open it at first. Y'see, the packaging is gorgeous. It's a dove-gray and pink box, tied up in a beautiful pink ribbon. Who wants to ruin that prettiness? Eventually, I opened it and found a beautiful glass jar and tube of product nestled inside.

GiggleSugar offered to try out the Crystal Radiance Microdermabrasion System ($75), so I sent her home with it. The next day, she was beaming. Check out her review:

The JamieO Microdermabrasion System came in two parts: a jar of "Crystal Radiance" exfoliator cream and a "Bioactivator" liquid you're supposed to put on top. Following the instructions, I lightly scrubbed the exfoliator cream onto my face for a minute, avoiding my eyes. It had a wonderful orange citrus smell and I loved the non-wimpy exfoliator crytstals—they were the right size and were in the right concentration for the cream. (I hate when an exfoliator is mostly cream and I can barely feel the grains.)

After a minute, I applied the Bioactivator liquid to the top of the grains, lightly rubbing it in until it foamed. The instructions said to wait for two minutes and then to rinse off. My skin felt so soft afterward, and the roughness I had felt around my jaw was gone. I've never used other microdermabrasion systems before (I've only done over-the-counter peels), but the result from a texture standpoint felt comparable. I would use this again; I felt like I was pampering myself, my skin felt smoother, and my makeup went on easier.

She's sold on it, and although I haven't tried it, I like the fact that it smells good. I've been using dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion in a Jar, and while it's all right, Mr. Bella is right when he says it reeks of Pledge. So there you go. Another product I've gotta put on my list—or at least one that I need to borrow from Giggle.

I've been using this product for the last few months and LOVE it. Have noticed a big difference in the texture and tone of my skin. And I agree I love the smell too. 5 stars!

I have tried the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel and have seen a difference in my skin. Its one of the best scrubs and acid peel in one that I have ever used.
