Neutrogena Advanced Solutions At Home MicroDermabrasion System

This is an in-home MicroDermabrasion kit from Neutrogena.
As everyone knows, going for a MicroDermabrasion at a salon can be $$$.
Microdermabrasion is used to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. It also helps to combat sun damaged skin.
As I have a few light sun spots and minor scars, hey, this is what I need!
After conducting some research, Neutrogena is one of the better ones to use.
From the Neutrogena website, this is what it says:
The kit contains 2.5 oz. jar cream, system applicator, 2 sponge heads and 2 AA batteries.
The Jar cream which is the Advanced Solutions™ Micro-Oxide Crystallized Cream contains the same Aluminum-Oxide crystals used by dermatologists to promote surface cell renewal, revealing fresher, smoother skin.
The Advanced Solutions™ Soft Foam Sponge Head distributes the Micro-Oxide Crystallized Cream to gently and evenly retexturize skin for the perfect degree of skin resurfacing.
The Advanced Solutions™ System Applicator has two speeds, allowing you to control the intensity of your treatment for maximum results without discomfort.
The review from Paula Begoun indicates that this is definitely an option to consider and was one of the better reviews from her of similar brands who sells this product. Unfortunately, this isn't sold in Australia and I'll have to either buy online or overseas.
For those who have used it, do tell me your experience. In the meantime, this is staying on my wishlist and I'll definitely tell about my experience once I get my hands on it.

An extension of my original idea..

When I started this blog, it was just to chat about beauty related stuff.
However, I find that there are just way more fabulous and also not as fabulous stuff in this world to just constrict it to beauty.
Therefore, I decided that anything that is a diamond or dud find that might interest other people as well will be posted here.
Hopefully, you will have as much fun reading about my discoveries along the way as I am.

Paula Begoun


If there is the one thing that I would recommend to anyone, it would be this author, Paula Begoun. She currently has three books and I chanced upon her website a few years ago. This is one of the best starting points and I always refer back to her books/newsletters and website as a starting point whenever I find any new products or I want to know further about any existing products.

I find that reading her books helped to resolve a lot of questions about treating any skin problems and the best way to go about it. The best one to get if you are hesitant is “The Beauty Bible”, it has all the questions about pimples, scars, blackheads, cellulite etc.. that we all asks and the answers for those. I started out with “Don’t go to the cosmetics counters without me”, you will see me going to the bookstore every few days for hours on end to read that book before I finally bought it. It definitely helped me to save a lot of $$$. She will research on as much of the product as she can and will tell you whether it does what it claims to and will also list any ingredients in the product that could be irritating for your skin. Not only did I save on $$$ but a lot of problems that I had for years like those stubborn blackheads before are gone. My friends have been getting her books as presents from me ever since!

I usually don’t ever buy any skincare products or cosmetics without seeing if she has done any research on it. Obviously, she only reviews products that are available in the US.

I give her books the No. #1 place on my Diamonds Top 10 Listing. You can find out more about her on the US website or if in Australia

Luvs ~ the extensive research on most beauty products, treatments and ingredients.
Don't Luv ~ Nothing really, other than most of the products researched are US based.
