Linden Leaves Rejuvenating Dermabrasion With Organic White Tea

Rejuvenating Dermabrasion with Organic White Tea is an exfoliator containing AHA (exfoliates and reduces skin dullness), tangerine (brightens and clears the skin from congestion and spots) and organic white tea (antioxidant and promotes cell regeneration).

Alpha hydroxy acids (often referred to as AHAs) are derived from fruit and milk. They work by removing the dead topmost layer of the skin allowing newer, healthier skin cells to show. The top layer of the epidermis, called the stratum corneum, is home to many minor skin imperfections e.g. age spots, skin discolourations, fine wrinkle lines, sun damage and blemishes.

A specialised skin brightening dermabrasion treatment to give you a gorgeous, youthful, glowing complexion when you really need results.

Natural AHA fruit extracts provide a gentle dermabrasion treatment to exfoliate and transform the skin, resulting in a visibly improved, smooth and glowing complexion. (Source:

Name: Linden Leaves Rejuvenating Dermabrasion with Organic White Tea
Price: RM 196 for 55 ml
Made in: New Zealand

This creamy, non-granular exfoliator is suitable for all skin types. While effective, be warned that it is very abrasive. It is something that should only be used once or twice a month (even though the instruction says it is safe to use every seven to fourteen days).

I massage it to cleansed skin and leave it on for two minutes. During that two minutes, I can really feel it working - the area around my mouth area tingles. It rinses easily and does not leave a residue. I follow with my usual skincare regimen afterwards.

I immediately notice the difference after each use. My skin ends up looking refreshed and bright. It really helps to unclog pores and my skin feels soft and baby smooth.

Following the procedure, it is important to use a good sunscreen and to avoid sun exposure for at least a week to avoid hyperpigmentation.

The 55 ml tube will last a long while and it is just as effective and way more economical than monthly spa visits with their astronomical price tags.

Sounds very interesting. I'll have one problem of trying to be out of the sun for a week since I'm out and about a lot for work. I did use a product once that sounds similar to this although it was meant to be used every day and night. Unfortunately the exposure to indirect sun caused me major skin irritation problems that I had to stop. I'm so happy for you that it works well on you.
To answer your question on the use of NeriumAD--I believe it's supposed to be used alone and using other products on top will counter act it's effectiveness. Yeah, I love the one step application since I can be pretty lazy at night too but the price and the fact that it didn't super impress me leaves me to think that I can find other products that are better.

Really wonder what ingredients other than Glycolic Acid is actually doing the exfoliating work, because if that's the only ingredient that really makes the difference here then I'm pretty sure that this product can be replaced by tons of other known products.. o:

wooo, it sounds very promising and amazing. I doubt if the effects are similar like the Cellnique
Advance Renewal Masque....
How are u lately?

Wow this stuff sounds really good. The texture, since its not granular, looks very gentle but it sounds like its actually very strong. I am currently using Dr. Brandt's product similar to this...maybe I'll try this next =)

I love dermabrasion at home instead of having it at a beauty salon! Currently using one from Kiehl's and it's nice :) I agree it'll be too abrasive for the skin, so I rub 30 seconds on the skin then rinse. The results is fantastic. Wearing sunscreen afterwards is a must (and everyday!)

Looking through, I'm assuming Glycolic Acid is the only ingredient sloughing off dead cells. What you said makes sense, I'm sure there a lot of alternatives to this exfoliator out there!

What is the name of the product that you're using from Kiehl's? Sounds like a great product to have around when I have emptied my tube!
