Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub

Size: 8.0 oz (237 ml)

Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub is a gentle yet effective daily exfoliant formulated for both face and body, to renew skin's texture, remove impurities and provide skin with a fresh, healthy glow. This scrub uses aloe vera and green tea leaf extract to brighten and energize skin, while removing dull, dead cells, which also allow for maximum absorption and efficiency of other products in your regimen. In order to make sure this product provides the efficacy and results it promises, the Truth In Aging community has tested and reviewed Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub, to ensure that you get a powerful cleanser that will smooth and replenish your skin.

Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub uses grapeseed extract, which not only possesses anti-inflammatory qualities, but also contains malic acid, furthering the gentle exfoliation. One of the most interesting components of this product is its inclusion of diatomaceous earth, a fine powder made from crunbled pieces of soft, natural sedimentary rock. This boosts the exfoliating and smoothing process, while Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate works to deeply clean and refine the skin.

TIA Review by Nisha:
I just used the Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub and the stuff is the bomb!

I was genuinely surprised at how well this gentle scrub left my skin looking and feeling after just one use. I had only lightly massaged the scrub, which also formed a nice lather, onto moist skin. My pores appeared to be noticeably cleaner and my skin felt incredibly smooth; the way it looks and feels post-chemical peel. Upon closer examination of Stemulation Micro Derm Scrubs formulation, I found the majority of the ingredients to be natural and relatively mild.

The second ingredient is aloe, which is known for its soothing properties. There are several skin-beneficial extracts including green tea, bilberry and ginko biloba. An intriguing ingredient in the formulation is diatomaceous earth, a naturally occurring, soft siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine powder and is very light as a result of its high porosity. Vitis vinifera or grape seed extract not only serves as an anti-inflammatory and a natural preservative, but also contains malic acid, aiding in exfoliation. Sodium lactate, a natural salt derived from lactic acid, plays double duty as a preservative and an exfoliant. There is also sodium lauroyl methyl isethionate, which Marta found to be benign and gentle. Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate serves to clean skin by mixing with oil and dirt and enabling them to be rinsed away. It is Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) approved when used in rinse-off products. Potassium sorbate is a mild, natural paraben alternative.

A little of this Stemulation Micro Derm Scrub goes a long way, and I have found myself using it every night during the current heat wave in New York City. I use the tiniest amount to lather up on moist skin, always rinsing off with cool water. My skin feels refreshed and looks radiant after each use. For a superior product, it is a generous sized tube for the price and I imagine that the tube will easily last for several months so I think it is definitely a good buy. A final housekeeping note, the formula is a bit runny so I keep the tube upside down (with the cap side upright); otherwise, I find that the product can accumulate and dry out in the lid and I do not want to waste a drop of this lovely potion!

Our Take

by Nisha Sometimes a product turns out to be awesome when you least expect it to be. I had only just heard of the Stemulation skincare line after reading Marta’s review of the Rescue Repair Hand and Body Treatment ($96 in the shop). I’ve tried a ton of scrubs over the years and while some... read more

    I bought this product because it had good reviews, but I am not too crazy about it. I think is a rough on your skin. It doesn't feel smooth after you use it, the scrub feels rough on your skin not leaving it smooth . I wont use it every day , it makes it dry. I also thought it was more exclusive of TIA website products and I found it at Walmart website cheaper, It was very disappointing . I would look for a better product next time.

    Wow! I'm 64 with dry and dehydrated skin and had taken myself "off" exfoliation, acid and scrub products for a year because my skin was not reacting well - becoming increasingly sensitive and prone to irritation and more dryness afterwards. However, the cumulative effects of Not exfoliating were increasingly obvious - my skin didn't feel good (certainly not smooth), did not look healthy or radiant or glowing and clearly I wasn't getting the benefits of my serums and treatments.

    I selected this Stemulation scrub based on reviews and ingredients to help kickstart my skin's health again. SO GLAD I did! This scrub is marvelous and from the very first use my skin felt and looked so very much better. (Instant gratification is so nice...) I use it once a day and find it to be a perfect choice for my somewhat sensitive skin because It is not drying or irritating at all. Very very happy to have found Stemulation's scrub!

    I used the scrub on my face and it left my face very dry. My forehead and nose was so dry it started to peel and left dark spots on my forehead. Definitely wouldn't recommend if you have sensitive skin.

    Hi Anne, the scrub effect comes from the Diatomaceous Earth listed in the ingredients. We would never curate a product that contains plastic microbeads. FYI, the composition of microbeads can include polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polymethlyl methacrylate (PMMA) or nylon, so you can look out for those names when looking through ingredients lists to ensure the product does not include microbeads, which are now banned in the US.

    Does anyone know what is the exfoliating substance? Is it the small plastic that is so dangerous to fish?

    I think is a good exfoliant, but mainly for body, not face. It's too rough to use on your face, and I won't even think about using it daily. Weekly should be fine, but being very gently on the face.

    I live in tropical northern Australia - hot and humid. The Stemulation Mirco Derm Scrub keeps my face clean and glowing, it smells beautiful and is so easy to use! My usage depends on what I have been doing - if I have been busy in the garden or we are away camping (or out bush) it gets used every day, however when I am in the office I use the scrub a couple of times a week in the shower in place of my usual cleanser. Thank you Marta for introducing this product to me in my Discovery package!

    Excellent scrub. It's a huge tube and lasts a long while. I also have started using it with my facial cleaning brush and that works miracles. I like that it has smaller scrub particles and it doesn't feel like it's tearing my skin, but after scrubbing my skin feels insanely smooth.

    This goes on my short list of great exfoliating cleansers. It does an excellent job of cleansing, without stripping, and rinses easily with no residue. Gets an A+ from me!

    Smells good, gentle & effective. Generous size. I did not notice any irritation or any miraculous changes. It is a good every third day cleanser for me.

    I am really impressed with this scrub. I use it on my face and neck several times a week. After rinsing off it makes your skin feel so soft and smooth. Really nice product. It's comparable to the after effects of Philosophy's Microdelivery Peel duo but it's quicker. Got this in the Discover with Marta and will be purchasing again in the future. Probably next year since it comes in a huge tube. It's really a good value for only $28.

    I was surprised by the large full size tube included with my Discover package.

    This product does an amazing job of cleansing and exfoliating the skin. I had a couple of pimples when I 1st started using it and within 2 days my skin was completely clear. My skin feels extremely clean after I use this scrub in my morning shower and is gentle enough for daily use. Just love it.

    Thank you Marta for including such an incredible product in the package.

    I use this as a body exfoliator after getting some in my eye and scratching my cornea! Use with caution around the eye area...

    Love it!!!! As a medical esthetician for 20 years I NEVER come across product working so well so fast.
    Using serum, boost cream -I found out they work better together. Just started Body lotion with lactic acid.Skin feels fabulous.
    I am in my 60th..My skin never felt smoother and tighter.
    I am just about to try the cleanser and scrub.

    I've tried a number of different serums, many of them due to the great reviews on TIA. I'd love to try this on my agng skin that never seems to know if it's dry or sensitive or breaking out, and share the results with the TIA community!

    Hello Again.. Im aware that I commented above but after researching the Stemulation line alittle further , Id also love to test the Stemulation Serum. As a woman with a history of acne in the past (and the scars to prove it) I'm always looking for a product that helps!! From everything I've read so far I'm truly excited about this line and especially these two products!! I've done all the research, all I need now is a chance to try the products and form my own opinion.

    Please consider me for the serum; I would very much like to try it and compare it to the other Top 5 serums that I have been using. Thank you!

    As a baby boomer who's fairly knowledgeable
    about anti aging products, and who has reasonably good skin I would welcome the opportunity to try this.

    I would like to be a tester of the serum. I've been using the AQ serum and would like to do a comparison. It would be interesting to compare how both of these two great products size up to each other!

    Hi Nisha,

    I'd love to try the scrub. I think it could be an excellent product for me to try as I actually scrub lightly twice a day, if you can believe it. I could test again my experience for that, which I've done for the last 20 years or more.

    Also, I've always had oily, acne-prone skin, even into my 40s and have had to keep my skin scrupulously clean to avoid breakouts even now. So it would be interesting to see if this scrub could clean, clear and calm the skin, which it seems to intend to do.

    Would love to try it. Thanks!

    All the best, Nancy

    I would truly LOVE to try the Stemulation serum. I have read that Demi Moore is a huge fan of this product, and she always looks fabulous! I use serums every day as part of my skincare regime, and feel that a serum is a must-have beauty essential.

    Amazing!!! This is the first time I've heard of the Stemulation line and I would "LOVE" the privilege of being a tester for a couple of reasons.. First I have sensitive skin and I have a hard time finding scrubs/exfoliants that aren't to abrasive for my skin. Second ALOE!!! I've been reading a lot about the use of aloe in skincare products and it's amazing moisturizing and healing/soothing properties and I'm quite intrigued.. Finally im ALWAYS looking for quality products to add to my regimen.. I've tried TONS of microderabrasion scrubs and honestly haven't had much luck with finding a "quality" product...Perhaps Stemulation is the one??? Please Please consider me to test this product!!!!
    Thank You
