Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well? I have had the most stressful week at university packed full of exams! I have one more left to go next week and then i am officially finished, yay! I think everything has caught up to me from my dissertation and revision stress and i seem to have come down with a pretty nasty cold with the added bonus of hay fever…yay me! I know especially on days when i am not feeling too chirpy i like to revitalise my skin to make sure i get rid of any nasties that might cause breakouts. Lets face it university for me has taken a complete toll on my body the last few months so i cannot wait to finish and relax over the summer time! #StudentLife and all that jazz haha!
Something i am looking into doing once i finish university is booking a professional microdermabrasion treatment for my skin to revitalise and remove all the nasties before my vacations this summer. I kind of want it to be almost a fresh start for my skin, if that makes any sense at all. So, when i was contacted about the Resultime microdermabrasion scrub i literally jumped at the chance to give it a try and review it on my blog because it is a more affordable do it yourself treatment that you can do at home. I am still planning on having a microdermabrasion treatment done soon, however, it will be amazing to see how they compare…so keep an eye for that up coming post if you are interested!
Resultime was a completely new brand for me to give a try and i was excited see how it would work for my skin. My skincare routine is something i like to mix up every now and again because i find products can stop working on my skin…so weird i know! Resultime are one of the best kept beauty secrets and is a results-driven sophisticated skincare brand who offer a complete salon treatment range and homecare line. A focus on constant innovation allows them to offer a comprehensive array of high-performance treatments and products to give you the means to achieve better skin for life. They are in the process of creating patented active ingredients such as Vectorised Micro-Collagen, to offer treatments and products that correct and maintain your skin. Their mission is to offer the mean to achieve beautiful skin for life; through products and treatments and through education. I haven't heard much about the brand previously but doesn't the above sound pretty incredible?! Whilst doing some research i stumbled across some dermatologists who actually recommend using Resultime products…knowing that a professional is recommending them makes me want to try a load more!
This intense smoothing scrub is inspired by a microdermabrasion treatment as you can probably tell by the name. Something that really caught my eye was the fact that it uses Pink Quartz Micro-Particles, Bamboo Powder and Vitamin C to remove dead skin cells and enzymes to renew the skin. It leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and luminous. According to Resultime it is suitable for most skin types and is ideal for dull skin and those who like a 'scrub' sensation. I personally have a true combination skin type which is prone to the occasional breakout. I find if i over use exfoliating products on my skin it can dry it out and cause intense breakouts, so i prefer to use these types of products once or twice a week. On the Resultime website it mentions you can use it morning and evening, however, i preferred to use it only in the evenings to remove all of the left over residue from removing my makeup. I would apply a pea sized amount of the product over my damp face and let it sit and work into my skin for a few minutes before wetting my hands with warm water and gently massaging the scrub in small circular movements over my face and neck to emulsify the product. The formula has a super fine grain like texture that you can feel working your skin when massaging it in. As you can see from the swatches above you can see that it is a white consistency, I think because it has the Pink Quartz in the formula i would have liked to see a pink products haha!
The exfoliater uses innovative technology to offer a remarkable 'good-as-new skin' effect. It's Pink Quartz Microcrystals act like a microdermabrasion treatment that rids the epidermis of the dead skin cells that dull the complexion and smooths the skins surface texture. In support, an enzyme is used to complete the exfoliating action and the formula is enriched in Vitamin C to brighten the complexion. After using the exfoliater i did notice my skin felt completely different and was incredible smooth and soft to the touch, however, i did not notice the brightening effects straight away. It wasn't until i woke up the following morning that my skin looked different and more alive.
The Resultime Microdermabrasion Scrub is a product i don't incorporate into my skincare routine everyday but it is more of a special pampering product that i prefer to use at the end of the week to give my skin a little pick me up. For £27 i think it is a little on the pricey side, however, when you think of similar brands such as Elemis and Origins you are paying around the same amount and in the long run it is totally worth it because the product has longevity and does what it is going to do for your skin.
Overall, I have been really enjoying this special product and i would recommend it to anyone who wants to try something very pampering or an at home microdermabrasion treatment. If you have a specific skin concern then you can check out other products that Resultime have to offer here. I hope you all enjoyed this skincare post, i would love to know your thoughts on the Resultime Microdermabrasion Scrub.
