Lancome Resurface Microdermabrasion Body ($46.00) is my newest addition to my shower regimen. I love exfoliation; it just feels like I’m getting clean, my skin is always incredibly softer post-exfoliation/scurb, and if I could do it every day, I would.

For my body, while I do sugar scrubs once a week or so, I do find that they can be a little rough from time to time. Enter Lancome Resurface Microdermabrasion! They use aluminum oxide crystals and finely ground pumice stone as their exfoliators of choice, which is a very, very fine mixture that you smooth over your skin, massage into it, and come out with gorgeous looking skin.

It is such a fine/small exfoliant, so it is ideal for anyone who has sensitive skin, exfoliates regularly, or may be fair skinned and stronger exfoliants leave tell-tale redness behind. You get a pretty decent sized tube of the stuff for the price, and you really only need a pea-sized amount for each leg. Another thing I like about this is that unlike a lot of my sugar scrubs, this doesn’t have any oiliness to it, so I can use it right before I shave without getting film and residue in my razor afterwards. I’m so in love with this product, and it is the perfect addition to my body care–just in time for summer!

  3. I, too, am a big fan of exfoliation. With skin more sensitive than a baby’s, I have tried many products and ended up with baby rashes. I will pick up a tube of Lancome today. Thanks.

    I love body scrubs, my hubby kept stealing mine, but I guess I can’t complain, now he’s got skin as soft as me…well almost ;-P

    Interesting, but does it have oil in it? My husband always complains that my scrubs leave a slippery residue in the bath.

    • Hey Vicki!

      I don’t think so… nothing you would notice, though, because it washes off easily and doesn’t leave any residue on me. It seems to rinse down the drain quite fine.
