This week Makeup Wars is about Beauty Tools that we love. I have quite a few that fit that category but I’m going to talk about one in particular: MiniMD by Trophy Skin. The MiniMD has won me over and I think it will win you once you see what this is and what it does.
MiniMD is the smaller version of Trophy Skin’s RejuvadermMD Dermabrasion System. The MiniMD is the mini handheld microdermabrasion system that you can easily use on yourself to have younger and more radiant skin at home. This is perfect for me since I hate going out for appointments especially in the winter. This is not only a time saver but it’s a skin saver. I’m crazy about this. This takes approximately 5 minutes to use which is nothing in the scheme of things.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Inside this box you’ll find the MiniMD apparatus, a Diamond Tip for exfoliation and a set of 30 Black Wool Filters. The apparatus comes complete with the Diamond Tip attached. There’s also one of the black wool filters inside. This system is so easy to use even if at first it looks difficult. The hardest thing for me was to figure out where the filters went. I didn’t realize that I had to unscrew the diamond tip in order to place the black wool filters. I feel silly for that but maybe now you won’t have that problem.
What makes the MiniMD unique is the 100% Crystal Free Natural Diamond Tip for exfoliation. This isn’t a crystal tip so it doesn’t cause irritation or undue redness. The Diamond Tip sloughs away dull skin cells and primes your skin for the products that you use and love. Trophy Skin sells an Argan Oil Anti-Aging Serum which I haven’t tried yet but I’ve been using my current skincare serum and it’s working just the way it should.
You can start using your MiniMD within minutes of receiving it. It’s powered by electricity so you plug it in, push the power button to turn it on and go. BUT I do advise reading the booklet first.
The number one thing you need to know is that you should start on Low for the first few times you use this. After your skin is used to the MiniMD then hit the power button a second time to adjust it to High. You can readjust the power for different parts of your skin too.
The second thing you need to know is that it takes a total of 5 minutes to do your entire face. Even after several weeks of using this I still don’t go over any area more than twice.
Number three is to only use this 2 – 3 times per week. I’ve been using it twice a week and I find it especially helpful on my nose and chin where I get flaky.
Keep the Diamond Tip flat on your face to keep the suction working. Whenever I stop I can feel it pulling on my skin. It’s inevitable that this happens to me several times when using this so it’s not a big deal – but it’s when you can really feel what the MiniMD is doing.
When I’ve done all the passes I want to on my face I turn it off and use the washcloth that I’ve used to cleanse with and go back over my skin. You’ll find that you need to remove all the dead skin that has been exfoliated. You can also do this with a toner but I prefer to wipe it off first with water, tone, then serum and moisturizer. My skin can feel a little dehydrated after using this but that’s all the better to soak up my skincare and make it more effective.
When finished replace the wool filter. The wool filter looks like it does nothing but it does two jobs. It keeps the motor clean so that dust etc doesn’t accumulate. And it picks up the dead skin so it doesn’t go back into the machine. You can purchase a set of 30 for $15, they’ll last you 3-4 months depending on how often you use your MimiMD.

I’m thrilled to be using this and I’m noticing a difference. One of my goals this year is to work on my pores and fine lines and the MiniMD is the way to go. Exfoliation at home for 5 minutes several times a week to help me with anti-aging? Color me happy. — Marcia
