Honest reviews


I’d love to endorse this but…

I was excited to try this kit out, then I remembered why I don’t have any Olay products. Their products are still tested on animals. Many other companies shun this practice and I have to support them instead. You suck, Olay. Stop testing on animals so that I can buy your crap and not feel twice as guilty about where my money’s going.

Nice product but not really microdermabrasion

To call this product microdermabrasion is misleading. It’s more like a nice scrub/exfoliant. Compared to professional dermatological microdermabrasion, this product is very mild/light.That said, it seems like a good product that will yield many applications out of the bottles. I like that you apply it with your fingertips and don’t need some kind of battery powered applicator like other home kits, which can be a bit dangerous to use.Although the granules are very fine and probably quite safe, you probably still don’t want to rub them into your skin that hard nor very often. Doing so may cause permanent damage to your skin (redness, etc). Sure, you want to exfoliate, but you do not want to do any damage so please use it gently.I think this product does a good job of exoliating your skin and can be considered a good product for that. But it should in no way be compared to professional level microdermabrasion which you get done in a dermatologist’s office; the effects of that will be much more noticeable and pronounced.

Give this a second try…

If you follow the instructions on the back of the box, this product will not work as well as it could. The instructions say to rub the microdermabrasion treatment on clean skin and then to follow with the peel activator serum. This is all fine advice if you want a mediocre peel.The second time I tried this product a few days later I washed my face and left my skin damp and then rubbed in about a teaspoon of the microdermabrasion that I first ran under a little water. Adding a little water and having your face moist seems to be key. I then added about a teaspoon of the peel activator serum and noticed that it was distributing itself far more thourally than without the additional water. The second time my skin was completely soft and there wasn’t a trace of dry skin. Do rub the products on your face for the full time – 1 minute for each product.You may also find you enjoy this as a hand treatment. I found it exfoliates the hands very well and will leave them smoother and softer just after one treatment.For maintenance (if you are only using the microdermabrasion once every two weeks) I’d recommend you useOlay Regenerist Thermal (warms up) Mini-peel, 6-Ouncesand Olay Regenerist Detoxifying Pore Scrub 6.5 fl oz (192 ml).~The Rebecca Review

The BEST facial care product I have EVER used.

I can’t really rave enough about this product. Why has it taken beauty manufacturers decades to put out a simply home use exfoliation product that really works??? We have scrubs that partially do the job, but there hasn’t been a product that will let you do a professional job at home available.Until now.The kit comes in two parts, one part a container with what looks like orange liquid sand, the other part a squeeze bottle with a very thick clear liquid. You simply scoop a little of the orange sand onto your fingers and rub it into your face WHILE DRY. Your face feels like it is 5-10 degrees hotter while you are applying the substance and then it goes away. After rubbing that into your face for a couple minutes, you then squeeze out enough of the thick clear liquid from the bottle to cover all the parts of your skin that you massaged earlier. It starts to foam up a little when the liquid meets the sand, and then I use the Pro-X machine to massage the whole mess into my face for a minute before I rinse.You will get about 12-20 uses out of each kit, depending on how much you use each time.I will guarantee to anyone that tries this out that if they take a picture of their face immediately before using it, and then immediately after your face is dry afterwards, you will notice a SIGNIFIGANT difference. A difference well worth Amazon’s $20.

Wonderful – 15x Facials for Half the Price of One!

As someone who is always on the look-out for new facial products, I have to say this particular peel kit is a good step above the rest. At a measly 20$ – this product does the full work of a standard facial, and there are a number of benefits that come along with it.First off the average facial runs anywhere from 40$ to 85$ in my experience, with the higher-end facials running on an hour at some of the more luxurious spas. If you don’t mind skipping the cucumber slices and some steam, the Olay Microdermabrasion kit does at >least< the work of a standard 40$ treatment. Multiply the number of times you can actually use this product if you’re careful and that could be saving you a ballpark figure of around 580$! (40 x 15 – 20). It doesn’t take a math major to know that’s a huge amount of savings. Secondly, the scent of this product is absolutely divine – no, really, I wish I could wear it as perfume! When I’m done using this product, my husband tells me I smell delicious (enough said). But more importantly, yes, yes, this product absolutely works – and after using it sparingly (4x a month) for about three months now, my skin feels and looks better than ever with enough in the bottle left over for another two treatments or maybe even three.Bottom line is you will not find something more affordable and reliable than this peeling kit. Even if it’s not what you’re looking for I would still recommend it, because the noticeable results and the cost offset anything wrong with it (and I have yet to have a single problem). Amazon ships it, so you know it will arrive prompt (got mine in a day with 2-day free shipping) and intact. Really, as far as I’m concerned, this kit really nailed it – Approved!

Olay Regenerist MicroDermabrasion – WOW!

The scent of the scrub was very pleasant, sort of an orange/citrus scent. The package says to use a quarter-size amount, but I just used the bit that was on the seal, and that was more than enough. The crystals are very rough, but I got used to the harshness fairly quickly. Interestingly, I kept waiting for the gel suspension to dry out (thus causing a mess when all the crystals fell off my face), but it never happened!The next step is to add the serum to your fingertips and then apply it over the crystals on your face. The serum is meant to dissolve the crystals and… do something. My fingertip immediately sizzled, and when I applied the serum to my face… whoa! Talk about a heat flash! It only lasted a second or two, but it was very hot!Rinsing my face took forever as the crystals just didn’t want to wash away. I used the lotion that came with the Pro-X Protocol… bad decision. I would suggest forgoing moisturizer or trying to find something that is very, very gentle; otherwise, your face will feel as if it is melting off.Overall, I am satisfied with the product. My skin feels very soft, and unless I am imagining it, my skin tone seems to be more even already. The package says you can use the product up to twice a week, but I think I will stick with once every 7-10 days.

It’s okay!

Any dull haze on my face is lifted. However, exfoliating can do the same thing. The unique point about this product is how soft my skin feels after using it.

Gets rid of flaky skin

I’ve only used this for three weeks now, but I can already tell a huge difference in the clarity and brightness of my skin. I almost didn’t buy it since I usually go by Paula Begoun’s reviews of products, and she basically said that this product is no more than baking soda. Well, baking soda or not, it really works to get rid of dead, flaky skin, and I will definitely re-purchase this as long as Olay continues to make it.I bought this product since I’ve used Retin-A once or twice a week (depending on the time of year) for the last two years, and the Retin-A causes extreme dry patches and flakiness on my face. During this time, I’ve tried both cheaper exfoliants (from Avon and several from Boots) and also higher-end ones (from Elemis and Ren), but nothing helped remove the flaky patches and smooth out my skin — until I used this Olay product. It leaves your skin so soft and bright, and removed all of the dry and flaky areas. In fact, I may even be brave enough to try mineral makeup, something I’ve always shied away from since it makes my dry patches look even worse!As far as wrinkle reduction, it could be the placebo effect, but my forehead wrinkles and crows’ feet really do seem to be less deep since I’ve started using this.Before buying this, I had read a lot of reviews, both on this site and others, and many people said that it is similar to Philosophy’s more expensive product. The orange smell is a bit strong, but, since you’re only using it for a few minutes, it’s nothing too terrible.Overall, I’m so glad that I bought this product!

Love it

This combo is awesome. My face is baby soft after I use it and feels great. I do recommend doing it at night before you go to bed since it did make my face slightly red for a while. You will also need a very light moisturizer after, it can be drying. I have very fair sensitive skin and had no issues with it.

Made me break out

Well. I suffer from cystic acne. I hadnt had any breakouts in a while and i wanted to try this because of all the great reviews. Unfortunately it was not for me. The first time I tried this, my face was red and blotchy, but that was expected. The next day, i woke up with white heads and cysts on my chin. I decided to give it a chance so I used it 2 more times. Each time I used it i would have small red blotches that would then turn into pimples the next day. Like I said, I have cystic acne so these cysts take forever to go away. I tried to give it a chance, but it really wasnt good for my skin at all. It did make mt skin soft, but That doesnt matter if my face is going to have painful cysts on it. I love olay products, this one…..not so much. Also, the 2nd step in the microdermabrasion never foamed like it claimed,

Ursula Columbia, NC


This works really well! There is no doubt that you get a smoother more even skin after using this. Im a guy who works outside a lot and this helps to clean and even my face, also has helped with mild acne

Not that impressed

I had high hopes after reading the reviews. I didn’t notice a difference in my skin at all. I have very oily skin so maybe that’s why. It’s not a miracle in a jar. Do not let the positive reviews fool you. This isn’t that great.

Pat Alexander, AR

What can I say? I love this product!

My dry, sensitive, acne prone skin as a teen became dry, sensitive acne scarred as an adult. Someone suggested that I try microdermabrasion but, unfortunately, my budget did not allow for regular spa visits. On a whim (and because I love the Olay brand) I decided to give this a try.Application is very easy and takes only a little more time than I would spend washing my face in the morning. Immediately, I noticed the smooth texture of my skin. With continual use, my acne scars have faded away and my worry lines are less noticeable. Overall my skin’s elasticity has improved along with chronically dry patches.

Olay Dermabrasion worked great for my normal/dry Face and Hands

• Olay Dermabrasion worked great for my normal/dry Face and Hands
• Would recommend to those that do not have sensitive skin
• This product will make your skin feel baby soft
• Just follow the instructions exactly to remove just the dead skin layer

Fay Elk River, MN

A Real Nightmare!!!

This stuff scraped the skin off my face and caused small sores that burned. The exfoliating scrub is far from gentle. It is like sand paper….. can NOT be healthy.This product made my skin worst. Horrible! I am now forced to wear make-up, And I NEVER wore foundation in my life.

Jannie Ewing, NE

Really excellent results.

This is my favorite of the mini-peel kits. It’s easy to use, strong enough to make a difference but not so strong that it hurts your skin. It’s two pieces – a medium-textured scrub and an activating solution that finishes the peel. There’s no pre-mixing. Just massage the scrub onto your face for a couple of minutes, then add the liquid peel activator. It foams a bit and you can really feel it working. You’ll have glowing soft skin immediately and smoother skin with a more even skin tone after a couple of weeks. Follow withOlay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum, Concentrated Amino-Peptide Complex, Fragrance Free – 1.7 fl ozfor really wonderful skin. I specifically recommend the serum because it’s very gentle and effective, and calms the skin.

Go for a TCA peel instead- Save your money

I have this, and honestly, it does nothing for me. Save your money for a TCA peel you can buy on here. They are sooo amazing! I was so glad I found them on Amazon! (Much less expensive than going to my aesthetician).The results of the Olay peel don’t even begin to compare to a TCA peel, which you can find on Amazon easily. Go for a very very low % TCA peel, and you WILL see results.I dooo LOVE:NOT SMOKING (kills your skin and tans it like leather). NOT TANNING. I can spot a smoker or tanner before they tell me they tan or smoke.Neutrogena SPF 100 ( ^^ sun damage is 90% )Olay Regenerist Serum (so awesome)Olay Scrubbing Brush (exfoliation is #2)Vitamin C application to dark spots (try Dr. Murad or Caudelie’s new dark spot thingy)I used to work at Sephora, and I’m sorry, we can sell you skin cream all day long, but if you smoke and tan, say hello to Early Aging. Bronzer is your friend. TRICK: If you look at your bottom in the mirror, that’s how good your skin could look if you didn’t tan.

Nice Exfoliation

Great product for exfoliation. Just enough granules to exfoliate without being to harsh on skin. The second step tingles a bit, but works to dissolve the granules and add that extra lactic acid exfoliation before rinsing. Skin feels great after using this product. Especially great for the nose and chin area that tends to be a bit oily, cleans out the pores. My sensitive combo skin loves a twice a week use. Have used for over two years and will continue to use.

Quality Olay product like the rest

I love this stuff. I like it better than their spin brush. The brush exfoliates and keeps your skin super clean and removes excess dead cells. This stuff leaves your skin baby smooth. Your skin is tight and fresh and clean and soft. I use it once a week. I have adult acne so I use 10% benzoyl peroxide day and night so my skin can get very flaky and dry looking, and although it’d be ideal to use this twice a week for super soft supple skin, I like to save it as I only really need it once a week. I wonder if twice a week would damage your skin in the long run as it is very exfoliating and works really really well. I prefer this over the brush allthough the brush is a one time purchase and this is not.

New User

I just got my Olay Microderm kit and used it last night. I do like it. I exfoliate my face every day anyway, but after using this stuff, it felt really really soft and smooth afterward. I did actually feel as if I just had a facial, and I work in a spa! I recommend this product. Its easy to use and makes your face feel ultra smooth. Glad I got it. Waking up this morning, my face feels really smooth and moisturized.

Carmella Camden, ME

JUST okay

I’m 20, fair complected, oily/acne prone skin, HUGE pores, with a few acne scars. I’ve never had a microdermabrasion treatment so I thought this kit would be a cheap alternative. I never noticed a reduction in pore size or acne scars. I LOVED the way my face felt after using this– super smooth and soft. I continued use for about 3 weeks before I stopped using. I won’t be repurchasing this item.

Rhoda Heiskell, TN

It Works

I had some scaly, patchy areas on my face that just would not go away following a sleep study where they stuck little "glue-ey" things on my face. Apparently, I was allergic to the gel that was used. After six months of trying "this and that," I fiinally decided to give this a try. I have only used it twice, and the scales are GONE! I followed it with some Retinol cream, and now I have my face back! It doesn’t take much, and I only use it once or twice a week, so this will probably last a good while, but I will definitely be replacing it when it’s gone!

Vicki Campbellsburg, KY

Breakaouts , bumps, cysts acne

Ive read lots of great revIews and have decided to give it a try . After using this product my skin feels so soft but the next day my face broke out with bumps and cysts acne . Oh no I’m so upset cause i feel i just waist my money. This is my first time buying this kind of product .

Nadia Walton, WV

I think I love this stuff

I wash my face with a Clarsonic brush every day, use an exfoliating mitt in the shower, and use a light glycolic pad peel weekly. So I thought I was pretty good at the whole exfoliating routine. But, my skin was looking lackluster lately, so I thought I would try this product due the the great reviews. The first time I used this it was like night and day – you could visibly tell that a layer of dead,gray, dry skin had been removed and my skin was soooo soft and smooth. The next day my skin was literally glowing and brighter.I have some hyperpigmentation, so I get microdermabrasion treatments at the spa all the time. The treatments I get are high level, so this does not replace it, but I do highly recommend this. This is the best exfoliating mask I have ever used and I’m going to incorporate this into my weekly routine.

New skin

I felt I looked younger after using this product twice. My skin looks smooth and clear. Very easy to apply. I let it sit on my face while I soaked in the tub. Awesome!

Lashonda Punta Santiago, PR

Fresh faced

The combination of these two items combine to provide you with a fresh, clean feeling face. Once the scrubbing action and activator are rinsed off your face, you’ll feel like you had a mini-peel or an expensive scrub. It feels like you get a fresh start with your skin. I do this after a long day and it leaves my face feeling great just in time for bed.

Edwina Tipton, IA

it’s okay.

Nothing special. Olay has good products. I just keep forgetting to use this as often as I should. If you get it on a sale, go for it.
