I have been getting micro-needling treatments to remove lines in the forehead and a few scars and day 2 after the treatment my skin is a disaster. It flakes and is so so so dry. At first I was trying to remove all the dead skin with apricot scrubs -harsh and removed minimal dead skin. I didn’t know what to do and remembered I received this in a box and thought, why not? Omg. Any reviews you have read saying they are not sure if the little balls that form are skin -I assure you it is your skin! Literally ALL THE DEAD SKIN CAME RIGHT OFF! I have to admit the first time I used (on normal day not after MN treatment) I was a bit skeptical if the “balls” were actually my skin, it was so gentle it seemed hard to believe. But it is def your skin! Will be switching to this for my weekly exfoliating routine. Also note I suffer from redness, I don’t feel it irritated my redness.
