PMD Review and Giveaway


My sister-in-law is a pretty amazing esthetician. When you have an esthetician in the family who gets to look at your face across the dinner table every week, you get all sorts of discounted facial treatments. Not to mention your eyebrows always look amazing. Eyebrow waxing may or may not have been a family activity.  But when you move 1000 miles away, 1016 miles to be exact, you have to start taking care of your own skin. The washing and moisturizing is easy enough, I can even get my sister-in-law to send me great products to take care of that portion of my skin care ritual, but I am on my own for the rest of it. This week, as part of my participation in BlogHer and Best Buy's Inspiration to Fitness, Best Buy sent me a tool to help with the task of taking care of my skin. They sent me the PMD Home Microderm Abrasion Device.


It may look intimidating at first, but it comes with a short video that walks you through how to put it together, use it, and clean it. They even show you how to test your skin to find out your skin type and make sure you are using the correct disk. It is all really easy, and in a matter of minutes you have basically buffed away all of the dead skin cells on your face.

It's handy in the winter time when your skin tends to dry out, and it is going to come in very handy in the summer time when I spend a little too much time outside in the sun and my skin, even after repeatedly applying sunscreen, starts to look a little weathered. With repeated weekly use it can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots.

Dr. Oz even had this handy dandy device on his show as an inexpensive alternative to Botox. And it isn't just for your face. The microdermabrasion device features caps for your body too, so you can use it on your arms, hands, and even your elbows. I need to use it on my elbows!

Now that I have had a chance to use it, I want one of you to have a chance too.

Would you like to win a PMD Home Microderm Abraision Device for yourself? Leave a comment letting me know why you would like to own one, and you will be entered for a chance to win.

I'd like to own one because ever since I hit 40 (gasp!) my skin has really shown it. I want my beautiful youthful skin back! :)

I have started noticing as I am getting older, that my body is changing as well as my age. Sigh. I would love to try this product to help keep the aging process at bay for as long as possible!

Jason and Nikki said...

I totally have an appointment for botox next week. If this really does work I would love to own it. I never thought I was looking older until my 13 year old daughter told me ever so nice that I was OLD looking.

I would love to win this so that I can try to make my 60 year old skin look really pretty again and I love beauty products

Baye said...

This sounds better than just continually applying "stuff" to the skin. Every once in a while it's good a good scrub. This has to be much cheaper than the spa, too.

Keri said...

This is EXACTLY what I need for my face. When your face feels great your whole outlook of yourself feels better.

Cheralyn said...

Whoa. Whoa whoa whoa! This looks incredible. I've been going once a month for the past 3 months paying WAY too much to try to get rid of the spots on my face - the aging spots - from when I was in the sun in my 20's. I'd love to have this!
