Vasanti® BrightenUp!® Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

Don't let fine lines, acne marks, or redness get you down. Brighten up your day and your skin with this powerful exfoliator. Papaya enzymes work to break down dead cells and even out skin tone while dermatologist-approved microderm crystals fade fine lines and acne scars. Finally, aloe vera, coconut, and vitamins B and E nourish freshly exfoliated skin to keep it free from redness or irritation, making it look like you just got a facial.

Not exactly a dupe for Microderm...
Sampled

As a licensed esthetician, I will have to disagree that the BrightenUp! from Vasanti is not a dupe or a "mimic" of results you get from microderm. I found this product irritating and to over exfoliate. Definitely avoid if you are post menopausal (skin thins as you age), are on any retinols, acne products containing salycyclic acid, or have rosacea. The double pow of the mechanical exfoliant (the crystals) and the "chemical" exfoliant from the papaya may be more than what some bargain for. The results will not be seen for those over 30 until you're three weeks to a month out, due to cell turnover time. Use caution. It made me red and burning and I had to use some very calming products for a week afterward. With microderm, your technician can control the amount and depth you have, while with this product you're getting an uneven amount that can be more harsh due to quantity, pressure used, and how often.

Unknown Ingrediant Caused Allergic Reaction
Sampled

As a Licensed Esthetician I look forward to receiving skin care products in my box. I received this as a sample in my box and was interested in trying it out. Naturally I tried it on the back of my hand and the inside of my elbow to see how it would and to see if I have an allergic reaction. The moment I washed off the cleanser my skin was RED. My skin was incredibly itchy, almost like it was on fire. I began to swell and then moments after I dried off my skin broke out in HIVES. It took two days for the reaction to go away. I will not be purchasing this product solely because of my allergic reaction.

This smells funny, doesn't do anything noticeable, and is not exciting and this is the second time i've received this ho-hum sample. Birch box fail.

I don't think we got the same product.

Do you want the abrasiveness of pumice and the healing benefits of olive oil? That's what this has. Your face even feels like you took your pumice stone dipped in oil and scraped it all over your face. I don't have overly sensitive skin by any means, but this makes my skin just raw and unclean. I've tried it three times over a few weeks, but ended up chucking it out of the shower in frustration this last time. This made me question the whole Birchbox subscription thing.

Strong fragrance
Sampled

I have sensitive skin and the fragrance of this product is way too strong for me! The physical exfoliation is also too harsh for my skin.

Not the greatest. Definitely have gotten other samples before that were similar to this product that I felt worked better
