Review & Swatches: Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Cleanser & Microderm


Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Cleanser & Microderm

Availability: Sephora
Price: $24.00 (Cleanser) / $34.00 (Microderm)

Company’s Description

Cleanser: Gently cleanses the skin—removing surface oils, make up, dirt and grime—its whipped texture transforms into a soothing foam when blended with water. Skin feels fresh, hydrated and smooth instantly.

Microderm: Combines micro-exfoliants, natural extracts and high-grade micronized magnesium-oxide crystals to smooth, refine and polish skin’s texture. Instantly exfoliate and renew devitalized, dull and flaky skin.

This is for Miracle Skin Transformer’s two cleansing products: their Cleanser and Microderm. The cleanser is said to remove makeup and dirt from the face gently while the Microderm exfoliates the skin to refine its texture. Keep reading for my thoughts on these two skincare items!

Both of these products come in plastic squeeze tubes with twist-off caps.

The cleanser has a medium-thick, cream consistency. It lathers well once it’s mixed with water, so you don’t need much more than a pea-sized amount or two to cover the face. The cleanser does remove dirt and makeup pretty well, but won’t completely remove eye makeup. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, but it does strip the moisture from the skin, so I always need to apply moisturizer soon after I’ve dried off my face.

The Microderm is intended to be used as an exfoliator. It has a similar cream consistency as the cleanser does, but also contains a medium level of spheres that work to scrub the skin. The exfoliating particles are smooth and won’t scrape at your skin’s surface. My skin feels smooth after using this exfoliator, though I personally would like it to contain more spherical particles.

Both of these items have a scent, with the Microderm having a more noticeable citrus-like smell to it. Don’t be fooled by the company stating that there are no “synthetic” fragrances. Natural fragrances (like citrus oils) are irritating to the skin, just like synthetic fragrances are. Both these products would be better if they didn’t contain a fragrance.

I don’t think either of these items is worth the amount of money they cost. You can buy drugstore equivalents for much less money. And these two items from Miracle Skin Transformer don’t contain any special ingredients to justify the price. Even if they did, cleansers stay on your skin for such a short amount of time that any good ingredients they may contain won’t have enough time to work.
