If you want exfoliation..better than a peel imo get a dermaflannel!

Amazing , i've been using glycolic home peel occassionally and glycolic serum but this , used once has really made a difference!

I used it last night and this am i have a few teeny whiteheads between my brows that have obviously been lurking under the skin .

I got it for blackheads and blocked pores and you're meant to use it nightly for that, says it takes a few times to really see the difference.

Thought I'd share my new wonder flannel, looks like a normal flannel but when you use it it feels very different.

Can you not lance the whiteheads with a sterilised needle and a hot flannel? grin

I might get one for ds actually as he's getting all hormonal.

Sounds really good. where can you buy from and how much......

EmpressMaud Sat 02-Mar-13 13:48:35

Ooh, from Bravura too.
I'm tempted to have a try, as I've fallen out of the habit of the GA peels recently.

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 13:49:11

no these were not whiteheads but bumps under the skin
impossible to squeeze ..i tried

from the link in my OP..did it work?

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 13:50:04

the reviews are very good

MrsMeow Sat 02-Mar-13 14:07:27

Ooh thanks v much, I've actually been googling for info on peels this morning but have been quite put off by some of the 'after' pics!

Does it not do just the same as a muslin or similar would do?

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 14:09:37

much better than a muslin or flannel ,both of which i use regularly to wash my face
the feeling of it on your skin is very different, it comes with directions and warnings not to be too vigorous
my skin was very shiny last night
and slightly peeling in some areas this am

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 14:11:26

on the blurb about it don't forget to click on the words 'learn more' at the end
very easy to miss and ther's loads of info there

MrsMeow Sat 02-Mar-13 14:22:13

Thanks ggirl, very tempted!

OddBoots Sat 02-Mar-13 14:50:28

Thank you, I've ordered one. I look forward to seeing the results. smile

spanishring Sat 02-Mar-13 16:04:54

I want one! Do you think it's the same as the microfibre cleansing cloths you get in the pound shop?!

cerealqueen Sat 02-Mar-13 16:36:24

I bought a cheap version off Ebay and was not that impressed, this has good reviews!

perplexedpirate Sat 02-Mar-13 16:48:53

Every time I click on S&B I end up buying something.
Every. Time. hmm

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 17:07:17

god i feel a responsibilty now..hope you all like it
spanishring feels different to the normal microfibre stuff , alhtough I have only ever rubbed my face with a dry microfibre towel
have a go with a pound shop one and see
this one is quite strange feeling and makes your skin red initially

duende Sat 02-Mar-13 17:15:41

Thanks ggirl , I've ordered one. I used bravura's glicolic acid before and was pleased with the results. I'm now pregnant and my skin is absolutely horrendous with bad acne and there is very little I can use. I have high hopes for this!

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 17:20:07

your welcome , hope it helps

spanishring Sat 02-Mar-13 18:59:16

No way ggirl, I want the expensive one! I bought a more expensive microbiotic or something cloth from waitrose and it is Infinitely better than the pound shop cheapy ones so there you go. I will let you know how I get on!

Charliefox Sat 02-Mar-13 19:05:55

Companies must wonder why they suddenly get a rush of orders on a product!

knitknack Sat 02-Mar-13 19:24:10

Baa baa

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 20:39:05

Charliefox I know , maybe I should email them and ask for a discount grin

TerraNotSoFirma Sat 02-Mar-13 20:50:45

How coincidental, I ordered one on Thursday and it arrived today smile
I'm a bit scared of it tbh, do you just use it with your normal face wash?

ggirl Sat 02-Mar-13 21:01:04

I washed my face first then used it , the instructions are quite good.

TerraNotSoFirma Sat 02-Mar-13 21:06:00

Haven't opened it properly yet to have a good nosy.
Will find out in a bit when I go to wash my face, also bought a glycolic face wash, toner, night treatment and the chem peel.
