Reviva Labs Microdermabrasion Pomegranate Scrub -- pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

My Skincare Challenge includes masks and peels one to four times a week (depending on which product I use). One of those scrubs that I've most recently discovered is Reviva Labs Microdermabrasion Pomegranate Scrub.

Reviva Labs Microdermabrasion Pomegranate Scrub Review:
This is a really gentle scrub, but it still leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. I haven't been using it long enough to see long term benefits, but so far I'm loving this scrub. You don't need to use a lot either, so this 2 ounce size will give you a good amount of uses.

I used this on both myself and my husband. I like to do scrubs, peels and masks on him because that's really the only way I can get him to use skincare. He has sensitive skin, and my skin is acne-prone, so we're good test subjects when it comes to this kind of thing. We both had no issues using this scrub.

To use this I just washed my face as normal (Clarisonic Mia with some sort of cleanser), then apply this in circular motions to my face, gently scrubbing my face for about 3 minutes. I then left it sit for another minute before washing it off. I'm sure that's not necessary, but it's what I did. You could even keep this jar in the shower and do a quick microdermabrasion to your face while you let your conditioner sit on your hair.

It's a quick and easy way to get microdermabrasion into your skincare routine. If you buy this I would suggest using it once a week. If you have extra dry skin (which happens to a lot of us in the winter), use twice a week.

Now let me know what you think...

  1. Thanks for the review! :)

    This is indeed very helpful. My Aunt is a user of it.

  2. I am all about the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. Which, okay, I don't use daily, but still. Awesome stuff, and it's a chemical exfoliant rather than a physical one (no little scrubby grains to damage skin). Plus it comes as a *powder* which you mix with a little water in the palms of your hands, and I find that unreasonably entertaining. Really does smooth and brighten skin, when I can actually be bothered to use it. Plus I dig Dermalogica's sleek, clean packaging -- I refuse to spend big $ on unattractive things!

  3. @ collier: I've never tried the Dermalogica one (yet). Sounds fun though! I have one peel that comes as a powder, in capsules, from Philosophy (The Oxygen Peel). I find it fun to use too because of the process, which involves putting a powder in a little container with some hot water, shake it up, wait a minute, and then apply the gloopy gel. I too find it unreasonably entertaining, lol. Although I do admit that I don't really have a preference on packaging; I used to buy things (years and years ago) based on what looked prettiest but have been let down a lot. So now I don't judge a beauty product by its cover (packaging), but it is an added bonus when something looks pretty.
