If you’ve been following me for a while now on both the blog and Instagram, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of British health and beauty brand proto-col. More importantly, you’ll know that my favourite exfoliator of all time is one of their hero products, the Microdermabrasion.
Across the next few days, the brand are launching a campaign all about exfoliating and prepping the skin ready for spring, aptly named “Shed your skin”. To celebrate the campaign and the Microdermabrasion exfoliator, I have teamed up with the brand to provide you with the chance to win the miracle product for yourself. Simply head over to my Instagram to enter!
You may remember that I’ve already raved about the Microdermabrasion in my proto-col Mineral Makeup and Collagen Skincare review, but I really just wanted to focus on the Microdermabrasion product itself in this post and reiterate my love for it. I’ve had actual microdermabrasion treatments done before in professional salons and I can honestly say that none of them have made my skin feel quite as deeply cleansed and glowy as the proto-col Microdermabrasion exfoliator does.
I like to use an exfoliator at least twice a week due to the fact my skin is very combination and prone to congestion and oil. I love using an exfoliator to get a really deep clean and scrub away any impurities. The proto-col Microdermabrasion uses Glycolic Acid (AHA’s fruit acids) to gently lift away dead skin cells, whilst combining moisturising jojoba oil, beeswax as well as vitamins C and E to help soothe and soften skin. Once the dead skin cells have been removed coral seaweed, silk protein and plant-derived collagen boost the skin renewal process and help reduce the appearance of fine lines, overall helping to renew and revitalise the skin. As soon as I step out of the shower, my skin instantly feels invigorated and looks brand new. Literally, it glows.
But that isn’t the best part about the Microdermabrasion. For me, it has to be the formula of crushed diamonds and pearls which, alongside helping to exfoliate deeply and lift away dead skin, gives the product a gorgeous pearlescent sheen to it and makes the whole experience of using an exfoliator so much more luxurious.
If you’re looking for a new exfoliator, I would 100% recommend you give the proto-col Microdermabrasion a go. Even if just for the fact it contains crushed diamonds!
