I was able to attend the Silk’n bloggers launch party in London recently, where they announced the launch of their latest device – Silhouette. This is an at-home device to be used for skin tightening and cellulite reduction.
Amy Childs attended and was also announced as the face for Silk’n. It was great to learn about all the products that Silk’n has – from facial cleansing devices to IPL to home microdermabrasion, there is something for everyone!
My star pick from Silk’n? The Revit Microdermabrasion kit. It’s a handheld device that comes with three attachments: course, fine and precision that allows for targeted microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is an intensive exfoliation that aims to reduce fine lines, age spots and acne scars on the face.
I have had a three course treatment of microdermabrasion in the past so was anxious to see how the Revit system compared to the professional treatment I had received previously.
The great thing about Revit is that you can use it at home so you can let your skin calm down if there is any redness or sensitivity. Diamond peel exfoliation removes the outer layer of skin, which promotes the growth of new healthy cells.
The product is really easy to use – just clean your face and go for it! It only takes 5-10 minutes and you can use it every 3-4 days. I would recommend starting with your cheeks and then working your way to the nose, corners of the eyes and forehead. As the outer layer of skin will be exfoliated away – it’s best to follow the treatment with a really good serum or moisturiser so it can really penetrate deeply into the skin.
Revit also allows you to use various strength levels depending on how intense an exfoliation you need. Low level is best for sensitive skin types.
After using Revit at home I didn’t feel any sensitivity but this depends on your skin type. I thought my skin looked fresh, smooth and almost shiny with a kind of ‘scrubbed look’. My make-up went on more smoothly than usual and I always say that in order for make-up to look good you must have a good canvas! I will be using this in the coming weeks for sure!
