Revisiting an Old Friend: Colbert MD Intensify Facial Disks

Five years ago I fell head-over-heels in love with Colbert MD skincare, and while I have loved many other brands since then, I keep returning to this wonderful line of dermatologist created products. From the first moment that I tried the Colbert MD Intensify Facial Disks, I was hooked– and that love persists unabated.

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 many years, and have to confess that my experience with Colbert MD Intensify Facial Disks was a real game changer for me all of those years ago. While most of the solution soaked exfoliating pads that I have used are thin and double sided, Colbert MD has reimagined its form and instead has 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. It's been a long time since I've used Colbert MD but boy did I love the brand. Someone impersonated my blog and was sent a lot of product from them; then they blamed us for not putting up any reviews. That was depressing. These exfoliating pads sound great.

    1. I have been trying to rotate some of my favorite brands, and I pulled out all of my Colbert MD products to use them again! I remember when that horrible thing happened to you! That was awful! These exfoliating pads are so different from the others that I have tried over the years. They are thick and textured, and the tab on the back makes them easy to hold and control. I had forgotten just how amazing they are!

  2. Those look so luxurious! I love exfoliating pads, they make it so easy.

    1. They really are quite luxurious, and they are incredibly effective. The design is ingenious, too! I love exfoliating pads too!
