One of these pots contains 35, indivicually wrapped exfoliating 'finger mitts'. They are eached soaked in a chemical exfoliant (AHAs and BHAs) designed to provide the amount required.
I used to use these all the time, and I have to say that I did really like them, they seemed to be effective at exfoliating my skin, but also left it feeling slightly moisturised. Being individually wrapped, they were extremely convenient for taking to the gym (for use afterwards!), or on holiday.
I don't, however, use them any more - mostly because I find them too expensive. And as nice as the little pot is that it comes in there are only so many you can put to other uses - so the overall packaging does seem exessive.
The other cautionary note I would say about these is that they are quite harsh, they feel like they are scrubbing away at your skin - which is fine if your skin is not too sensitive (and is afterall what we would expect from an exfoliator), however the chemicals are also pretty harsh - so probably not for very sensitive skin.
I used to use these Dermalogica resurfacers they come in a pack of 35 now i use St.Ives which i find much more effective-and worth the cost!I know you cant compare Dermalogica and St.Ives but ive started to feel that dermalogica is only useful for a period of time and uour skin starts getting used to it!i normally use Dermalogica for like a month when i have uncontrollable break outs then i would go to some less srtong brands such as biotherm and Shishido.
Anyways, i found these resurfacers very strong though and they contain applications of alpha and beta hydroxy acids and enzymes.
Hydroxy acid is beneficial to wrinkles the signs of aging, and improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
If you have very dry and sensitive skin i really dont recommend this product!i have normal combination skin and i already find that once after using this product i have to immediately put on moisturizer!With no doubt it really does do what it says it cleanses your skin very well and clean leaving you refreshed and it feels like a old layer of skin has been taken off.
The smell is very strong too, immediately taking it out the pack you already feel that it has a lot of components and chemical in it-very concentrated!IT also has the ability to brighten the complex of skin and whitening use.
I know it is a daily professional skin cleanser but i recommend not to use this product every day 2-3 times a week is more then enough, not because of its price but because its very harsh, i know it might not seem it because you actually see the pouch exfoliating your skin work and it leaves dirt on the white material really works-but it is the long runs that matters!
What you do-Using your index and middle fingers inside the pouch, you gently rub/apply in circular motion, by touching the applicator to the face.
I did see difference when i first used it my skin was more spotless and refreshing but now that i have finished one tube of 35 i dont really want to buy this a gain because i truly did find it too strong!it is a good treatment for breakouts and it really works for acne skin-but please dont use this too much it will harm your skin like bleach-------its amazing how its so strong because it contains no artificial fragrance or color. However, do read the ingredients before buying as it may contain irritating ingredients that react to you!and you wouldnt really know if its you scrubbing too hard or the ingredients thats making the redness!

Although expensive, this daily treatment has been the one thing to clear my problem skin. Having been relatively acne-free over the years, turning thirty seemed to trigger a change in skin type and I suffered from continuous breakouts. Everyday 'antibacterial' treatments seemed to make no difference, and it wasn't until I tried the Dermalogica range that I noticed any improvement.
This product is expensive, but in my opinion is definitely worth it. It consists of 35 small exfoliating 'finger mitts' soaked in a chemical exfoliant (AHAs and BHAs) - no rough bits! They are separately packed, so deliver the amount you need with no wastage. I initially used the product daily, and had excellent results - my spots cleared up and my skin was brighter. Now I just use the resurfacer every other day, and the results have been maintained. I really cannot recommend Dermalogica more highly for 'adult acne' as it addresses both problem skin and wrinkles.
This product is amazing, my sister recomended it to me and I am so glad she did!! It is really for anti-aging I think but works a treat for problem skin also. you can even notice a difference overnight!!
You apply this product at night after washing your face but before moisturising, it recomends daily but i do it about twice a week to save money as it is quite expensive!! They come in little individualy sealed pouches and they are now a finger pouch you place over your index finger and gently wipe over your face avoiding the delecate eye area since it is an exfoliating product. you let this dry and then moisturize. even after one use i noticed a remarkable improvement in my skin, the next morning it was softer, smoother, clearer and revitalised! I was very impressed, if i could afford it i would use this daily but i have to spread out my use of it. I bought mine from ebay which was cheaper, you get 35 in a box and it costs about £56 in the shops but on ebay you can get it from about £35.
