Ingredient Spotlight: Microdermabrasion Crystals

Posted on

Your smoothest complexion starts with microdermabrasion exfoliating. Have you met our Honey Love 3-in-1?    

You may not be familiar with corundum crystals, but you have probably heard of sapphires and rubies. These popular gemstones are made from corundum. Without the vibrant colors that are sought after by the royals, corundum crystals can be used for things like skincare!  We use these crystals in our Honey Love 3-in-1 Exfoliator. Her gorgeous formula will naturally settle into three beautiful layers. The corundum crystals at the base, a raw Hawaiian nectar infusion in the middle, and vibrant botanicals that have settled on top.

Stirring this beauty will help to activate the crystals, providing a perfectly balanced and gentle exfoliation with every use. The infusion of exfoliating crystals with brightening and tonifying ingredients such as raw Hawaiian honey, tropical hibiscus flowers, and wildcrafted super-fruits will allow the Honey Love to brighten and clear the complexion while deeply moisturizing. Unlike traditional exfoliators that over-strip the skin and leave the complexion feeling raw and sensitive, the Honey Love will help to nourish, soothe and balance your complexion while gently exfoliating for your softest and smoothest complexion yet!

Our corundum crystals are finely ground into a powder that is perfectly spherical, without the jagged edges that typical exfoliators have that can tear and damage the skin over time. Their unique structure makes them the perfect manual exfoliator to soften, smooth and refine your complexion. Corundum crystals have natural anti-bacterial properties that help to clear the complexion and prevent future breakouts (total bonus!), plus they will not absorb into your skin and they rinse off clean. The benefits of microdermabrasion exfoliating are:

  • Increased cellular turnover
  • Reduction in the appearance of scarring
  • A clearer complexion
  • A more even skin tone
  • Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin
  • Helping to unclog the pores
  • Allowing for deeper absorption of serums, elixirs and balms


Try this at-home massage technique to give yourself a DIY microdermabrasion facial with our holy grail exfoliator, the Honey Love:   Do a first cleanse with our Bless Beauty Balm to remove makeup and impurities. Scoop a small amount of Bless into your fingertips, emulsify and massage into damp skin, remove with a warm, wet cotton washcloth. Mix your pot of Honey Love really well, making sure to stir up and activate the crystals at the bottom of the jar. Scoop a good teaspoon into your fingertips and start to gently massage the surface of your skin in small circular motions. Continue for 1-2 minutes, focusing on areas where you may have congestion (around the nose and T-Zone) and give your lips a gentle scrub as well. Make sure not to press too hard, keep a soft touch. Do not rinse right away, let her sit pretty on your skin for 2-5 minutes to help calm inflammation, fight breakouts and deeply nourish your complexion. Rinse well with warm water and finish by splashing your face with cool water to boost circulation. Mist your face with one of our toning mists, and while your complexion is still damp, follow with your serum and elixir of choice. We recommend including Honey Love into your skincare ritual 1-2x per week. Pick a day when you have a little extra time to indulge, and melt into the moment. Your skin will thank you.
