Colbert MD Intensity Facial Discs – A Wake Up Call For Skin!

As I get older I realize the importance of exfoliating my skin on a regular basis.  I can tell that my skin doesn’t heal as fast as it used to—if I get a scrape or blemish, the redness takes much longer to go away these days. Lazy cells. Tuuuurn over! To add to the problem, my skin is getting thinner thereby becoming more sensitive. I need to exfoliate and get those dead skin cells off to reveal the new skin beneath. Oh, and there’s one more problem. I’m……lazy. I don’t want to have to go through three to five steps to accomplish some buffing, know what I mean?

Good thing I found ColbertMD Intensify Facial Discs. These little magic enzyme soaked discs provide a convenient and effective way to perform an at-home microdermabrasion treatment. Developed by David Colbert, MD, founder of New York Dermatology Group in Manhattan, each product in the line delivers active plant-based nutrients to the dermis, with high concentrations of key antioxidants.

As I said, I’m basically lazy and not willing to add a lot of extra time to my skincare routine, so these discs score big for their convenience and ease of use. The discs exfoliate with these key ingredients:

  • Bromelian– a concentrated form of pineapple enzyme, which eliminates dry skin and improves skin texture
  • Lactic acid-a gentle, natural exfoliant that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Glucosamine– which maximizes hydration, helping skin to look plumper

The discs are a joy to use– they come with a backing designed to be peeled back halfway so you have a small handle to use–genius! Simply take a disc out of the jar and apply to a damp face after cleansing–they foam slightly and are so, so gentle. Easy peasy!  Colbert MD recommends massaging over your face in a circular motion for 30-60 seconds and then rinsing off. I’ve been using them twice a week for about three weeks and have experienced no stinging, burning or irritation. That’s why I love them–they are gentle on my increasingly sensitive skin but still effective as a good exfoliation treatment leaving my skin fresh and radiant. My success with the intensify discs makes me anxious to try other products in the line.

ColbertMD Intensify Facial Discs retail at $52.00 for a jar of 20 pads and are available at select Barney’s stores and P.S.-the frosted jar looks elegant on my vanity!
