UPDATE 04/23/10: Recently I have been spending a lot of time and energy learning about ingredients that are often found in beauty products. As a result, I no longer endorse this particular product due to the fact that it contains parabens such as methylparaben and butylparaben as well as other chemicals.

I have to admit, I am not the biggest Kiehls fan. I have experienced only minimal success with most of their product line, however I absolutely love their Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion treatment.

See reviews on other natural beauty products at:

I have been using this product religiously (2-3 times a week) for a year. It leaves my skin super smooth without the raw irritated feeling I have experienced from other scrubs.

This polishing cream is formulated with crushed microshells derived from ocean sand in a shea butter base. There is no fragrance or added acids, which is probably why it doesnt irritate my skin like other scrubs.

Although this product is expensive, it is nowhere near as expensive (or time consuming) as spa/salon micro-dermabrasion treatments. As a result of this product combined with the rest of my beauty routine my complexion looks just as good (if not better) than when I used visit an esthetician monthly.

    absolutely outstanding product using this before any good quality serums and moisturisers gives whatever product your using a big boost! everything seems to work as it should and fully absorb into the skin. i use this three times a week and it has completely removed minor acne scarring from my teens, well worth the money good review!

    @kellytirman In 1984, 2003, and 2005 the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR), an industry-sponsored organization which reviews cosmetic ingredient safety and publishes its results in open, peer-reviewed literature, investigated the safety of parabens. All three times the CIR concluded that parabens were safe as long as they did not constitute more than 25% of a product’s content.

    @kellytirman Parabens are just preservatives and many products would need them to increase shelf-life (they are usually lower in concentration and in the bottom of the list of ingredients). Some concerns may be allergic reactions, contribution to breast cancer, and disrupt body's hormones. in regards to allergic reactions "natural" ingredients that act as a preservative are more likely to cause reactions such as Vitamin E, tea tree oil, thyme essential oil, and phenoxyethanol.
