Colbert MD Intensify Facial Disks | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

One of the key components to healthy luminous skin is the requisite amount of exfoliation. Too little and skin looks dull and listless, too much and skin becomes damaged and traumatized. Ideally, using an effective exfoliator on a weekly basis and judiciously using (and reapplying) an SPF 30 or higher will go a long way to maintaining healthy skin and the highly sought after youthful radiance.

I have regularly used various types of facial exfoliating pads for quite some time, and have to confess that my experience with Colbert MD Intensify Facial Disks was a real game changer for me. While most of the solution soaked exfoliating pads that I have used are thin and double sided, Colbert MD has broken this mold and instead opted for a very plush and thick single sided pad. The generously saturated pre-moistened disks include a small tab on the back that makes holding the disk easy, and allows one to maintain effortless control.

The combination of the mild microdermabrasion action from the surface of the pad coupled with the enzyme action of the solution immediately and effectively encourages cell turnover that aids in the promotion of collagen production. Skin, unobstructed by a proliferation of dead skin cells, is then able to effortlessly and effectively absorb skincare products. The end result is unbelievably soft, smooth, supple and luminous skin.
According to Colbert MD,

Plush, pre-moistened exfoliating discs encourage cell renewal and enhance the effectiveness of Colbert MD’s daily products.

With gentle microdermabrasion, Intensify Facial Discs assist in skin’s natural repair process by removing dead cells and providing a fresh new luminosity.

Apply to a clean, damp face in a gentle, circular motion, continuing for 30 to 60 seconds. Rinse immediately with water. Follow with Stimulate The Serum. Use morning or night, one to three times a week, as recommended for skin type.

*Intensify Facial Discs have been specially formulated for use one to three times a week, depending on skin type. Delicate skin use once a week or bi-weekly, as tolerated.

  1. These single-sided microdermabrasion pads sound wonderful. I was just talking with someone about lactic acid in skincare. Gotta remember these

    1. Hi Allison, Not only are they single-sided, but they are so much thicker and juicier than anything else that I have tried! These are really remarkable! Definitely put them on your list to try when you are in need! You can probably get a sample from SpaceNK or Barneys next time you go into Boston!

  3. How would you compare them with the Radical pads as far as effectiveness? (I understand they are physically a bit different.) Did either work better than the other? Do you have a preference of one vs. the other brand? Thanks!

    1. They are really so different. In fact, I would say that they differ markedly from all of the thin double sided pads. The texture of the surface has a bit more grit, but it's not rough on the skin. The pad itself is also very thick and very plush comparatively, and each pad is soaked with a remarkable amount of the exfoliating serum. Once you apply it to your damp skin it produces a nearly foam-like substance. The tab on the back lends itself to a greater level of control over the disk, and makes it very easy to use. This is really like getting microdermabrasion. I love the Radical pads as well, but those would be better compared to flat double sided disks. I can personally use the Radical pads everyday, whereas I would only use the Colbert MD Facial Disks 2-3 times a week. These are definitely worth trying. My skin feels unbelievably silky smooth after I use them. It definitely feels as though I went and got a professional treatment afterward!
