Home Spa Night

Last night was home spa night at Casa de GlamMAN. Actually, to be more specific, it was Alford & Hoff Microdermabrasion night! A&H Microdermabrasion has become one of my favorite twice-weekly skin care treatments. After cleansing, while my face is still wet, I massage a nickel-size dab of the formula on my face and neck in a circular motion with very light pressure. Aside from feeling good, the visual effect is immediately noticeable – a brighter and smoother skin surface. This formulation contains mild diamond-shaped magnesium oxide crystals that polish away dead flaky cells without scratching or irritating the skin’s surface. It’s really wonderful and the crystals stay intact throughout the entire process until it is rinsed off. In this way it differs from most of the facial scrubs.

Alford & Hoff Microdermabrasion is available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and alfordandhoff.com.

Jim, this sounds awesome. A while back I purchased Origin's Modern Friction for its microabrasive traits. It worked for a bit but with time, it felt like it lost something. Now it feels like an ordinary scrub. I'd like to know how this Alford & Hoff holds up with time.

Yes, that's what I like about it too – it really holds up. A bit pricey but nice. Once or twice a week (at the most) does the trick for me - of course followed by a moisturizer. The scrubs usually have a cleanser in them and the beads dissolve. I've also used Modern Friction – I like it as a scrub too.
