Most of us would agree – devices are fabulous!
Can you imagine giving up your electric toothbrush? Or never again experiencing that ultra-clean feel you have after using your Sonic face brush?
Yet, for some reason, I was super skeptical about the DermaFlash.
I’m not sure why except its claim to exfoliate and remove peach fuzz struck me as a little lame.
I mean, isn’t that what BIC razors do??? At 1% of the price?
But I kept seeing it places and started to wonder if there wasn’t something to all this dermaplaning hype.
Three things convinced me to give it a try:
- The first being the Allure Magazine Best of Beauty Award. Those aficionados have never steered me wrong before, why would they start now?
- The second was the beauty advisor who helped me at Nordstrom. She raved about how much she loved hers, how great her skin looked afterward, and how many compliments she got after she used it. Her skin did look really good, so I couldn’t chock it all up to a savvy sales pitch.
- Last, are the new sunspots popping up on my cheeks every flippin’ morning. I’ve been relatively diligent about my discoloration regime. Yet lately I’ve seen zero to little improvement.
So, when my Nordstrom girl promised my treatment products would work oodles better, I was sold. You can check out this link for more details.
If you want to hear what the company has to say or watch a video of clients actually using it, here is the link.
Keep in mind, I didn’t read the directions. So, I’m pretty confident I did everything wrong.
But here it goes…
There are two speeds, working on the theory that more is better I cranked that puppy up.
On the first pass, I shaved off a big ole clump of peach fuzz.
The battery was still fully charged, so I made another pass. This time you could tell most of the debris was dead skin.
I was shocked by how much grunge the little guy removed. I mean, I exfoliate a lot; Sonic brush every morning followed by a manual scrub in the shower, exfoliating pads every night followed by a Retinol cream.
How could one dead skin cell survive all that? Let alone a cotton-ball sized pile?
One week in and here are the results…
My face felt super-duper soft. Like so silky, I spent the rest of the afternoon petting my face. (And possibly making others feel it too.)
I love Dr. Gross’s exfoliating pads, but I’ve been using them for a while, and they have long since stopped tingling. That night though was a whole different story… the tingle was back! In a big way.
And while logically I know that products work even if you don’t feel the active ingredients, I like it better when you can.
The next seven days:
My make-up looked amazing! I wear a full-coverage formula, and if I’m not careful, my foundation can look thick and little streaky. For the next seven days though, my foundation went on so smooth, so even, and so easy and wore so much better it looked ‘just applied’ all day long.
Consider me sold! DermaFlash is totally worth the price!
Anything that takes 5 minutes and the rewards last seven days is time and money well-spent.
Not enough time has passed to judge the effect it’ll have on my sun damage, but I’ll keep you posted.
