Terra Firma Cosmetics Micropolish is a fine powder that can be mixed with a small amount of water or a cleanser to exfoliate the skin. I purchased my first bottle years ago, used it a few times, but didn’t care for it. At the time, my skin wasn’t clear and I didn’t like using this on acne. The product becomes milky when mixed with a little bit of water, but there are still tiny granules to rub against the skin to remove dead skin cells.
Terra Firma describes this product as a facial exfoliate that is activated when it comes into contact with water. A unique blend of microdermabrasion and natural particles, combined with fruit acids and red wine vinegar, act to gently remove dead skin build up, accelerate cell renewal, and balance the ph of your skin. Gentle enough to be used daily by even the most sensitive of skin.
I know the importance of exfoliating and had typically depended on chemical exfoliation and my Konjac sponge. I still use them, but I wanted to do more. So, I started using this product again in early spring 2018. I loved it. I used it in the morning at least three days a week, skipping a day in between. It made my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth and helped fade my old acne spots faster. I loved it so much, I finished my first bottle. The original bottle I purchased years ago was glass. I’m not sure when Terra Firma switched over to the plastic bottle pictured here. This product would’ve made my GoodBuy 2018 list, but the powder in the new bottle isn’t as fine as the old one I had. It’s unfortunate, but the product isn’t unusable. It may be due to one ingredient that is causing the problem. Every time I use it, there is always one or two particles that are too large for a facial exfoliator. I have to pick it off and continue with my routine. It’s annoying. I inquired with the company if the formula had changed. They claim it had not, but perhaps some particles from another product got mixed in accidently. I can’t confirm if the ingredients changed because the label on my old bottle had rubbed off. If I can’t find a suitable replacement, I’ll probably repurchase because I love how this makes my skin feel. I just hope the next bottle is better. This product can be purchased on TerraFirmaCosmetics.com and retails for $21.99.
