  • Is only required to use once per week to see results

 CONS

  • Each tip provides only 15 light uses
  • Suction is not as powerful as professional-grade products
  • May harm sensitive skin

VERDICT

Many customers love this product and swear by its effectiveness. A handful of sensitive-skinned customers found the heads too abrasive to work well. This machine is a good purchase for those with normal skin, seeking a budget-friendly, portable microdermabrasion machine, but may not be the best for someone with high-needs, sensitive skin.
