Not too long ago the lovely folks of Trophy Skin reached out to us because they had a few fun and new products on the market.
If you’ve been around for any length of time then you know we’re big fans of their Microderm MD home microdermabrasion kit. With a price tag of $299, it’s not exactly budget friendly and it seems they got the memo. Because Trophy Skin wants to extend their reach, they have developed a mini version of their Microderm MD with a price tag to match.

Can you think of something that’s worse than an acne breakout?
I can – Stretch Marks.
Similar to acne, stretch marks can make us super self conscious and really wear down our self worth. Unfortunately, we don’t often have control over them.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was no such thing as cellulite?

Are you ready to say goodbye to embarrassing acne once and for all?
Of course you are!
Acne is incredibly frustrating. It makes us self conscious and hide our face when we should be going out boldly and confidently, without a care in the world.
