Honest Feedback: 3 In 1 Interchangeable Derma Roller Kit by Puruskin
Hey, I’m Wisdom Tucker Harris, and I try stuff out for you so you’ll never have to wonder what is garbage and what is Gold. Some items are purchased, and others are given to me in exchange for my trusted feedback. I promise to always keep it real.
I was offered a 3 In 1 Interchangeable Derma Roller Kit by Puruskin for my honest feedback and review, and if you know anything about me, you know I will give you nothing less than the truth. Today, I’m going to share my review of this Derma Roller Kit and my experience with it. First off, you might wonder, what the heck is dermarolling? It’s a valid question. I asked the same thing, but upon a bit of research, I found it to be quite curious. In a nutshell, Derma Rollers are hand-rolling tools with a bunch of titanium needles all over them that you use to poke tiny holes all over your skin. Why would you want to poke holes all over your skin? Dermatologists and Estheticians swear by this technique saying that when done properly, this process stimulates the growth of new skin and the production of collagen to heal and create new skin. This is ideal to treat acne scars, pitted scars, scaly skin, damaged skin and even hair loss. Who wouldn’t be pumped after a pitch like that?
Well hold your proverbial horses. There’s more to derma-rolling than just “roll and go”. There are several different types, sizes and grades of derm needling, and the professional type used by physicians starts at 1.5mm. I jumped at the chance to try this for myself in the comfort of my own home avoiding the hundreds of dollars associated with it. And I was super excited to receive my first derma roller kit from Puruskin in exchange for my honest and trusted feedback. The first thing I learned during my research was why and how derm-rolling is effective. It seems counter-intuitive to damage your skin in order to repair it, right? But think about a vaccine. When you get a flu shot, you’re actually being injected with the flu in order to train your body to fight off the infection and send healing antibodies to save the day. Another good analogy is when you see a tiller being rolled across freshly laid dirt and sod. The roller pokes a bunch of holes all over the soil to aerate the ground and make it more receptive to the seeds. Same with a derma roller. You poke a bazillion holes all over your skin (I’m exaggerating) in order to stimulate repair without damaging it enough to leave scars and also making your skin accept 98% of the product you place on top of it. This is great news for cellulite and stretch mark sufferers! But don’t feel you have to go out and buy a bunch of products. People see amazing results with Shea Butter, Olive Oil and even Jergen’s lotion.
On to my personal experience with the Puruskin 3 In 1 Interchangeable Derma Roller Kit. I opened my box and removed 3 very neatly sealed rollers of varying sizes — yellow for face at 0.5mm, teal for body at 1.00mm, and pink for larger coverage of the body at 1.5mm, one inside a hard case, fully assembled to the handle already. I read the instructions thoroughly and reviewed the included cards as well. The packaging and presentation gave my confidence this was a good company that stood behind its product. I filled a freshly cleaned glass jar with 3 parts alcohol and 1 part water, as suggested, and sterilized each piece for 30 minutes. Once sterile, I carefully removed them to a plate where they were allowed to fully dry. It is best to use a hair dryer to speed the process, but the sink was directly over a heat vent, so they dried pretty quickly. Do not use a towel or anything with lint. You will never get it clean again.
Upon first handling the rollers to assemble them, I was probably a little careless and pricked my fingers several times. It’s easy to do if you aren’t careful. Upon even closer inspection, I realized this little device looked like something from a torture scene, but I decided it couldn’t be that bad. Boy was I wrong! I had seen videos of people rolling their faces, tummies, legs, thighs, arms, breasts all with serious veracity… I decided I’d start with my inner thighs. I read you are supposed to roll:
- up-down, up-down, up-down;
- left-right, left-right, left-right;
- criss-cross, criss-cross, criss-cross;
- criss-cross the other way, criss-cross the other way, criss-cross the other way several times.
I’ve seen that:
- turning red is expected.
- puncture holes are expected.
- even bleeding is expected.
But you are not trying to turn yourself into hamburger meat either. There is a line. I have also read that there may be some discomfort. This is the part I had found to be misleading. I am a pretty tough chick, and I can handle more pain than most. This downright hurt like crazy. I wanted to cry. And what’s worse, I had track marks all over my inner thighs and abdomen for days. Lotion burned. Sweat stung. Even soap hurt. But my abdomen healed up within a few days and seemed tighter after one rolling session. My thighs took longer to heal (still healing in some spots), and I’m sure I probably didn’t do it correctly, but I wouldn’t do that again without numbing cream. I used a combination of the pink 1.5mm roller and the teal 1.0mm roller. What I liked about the 1.5mm roller was how wide across it was compared to others I’d seen. It is intended to cover more surface without having to roll for a longer period of time, which is nice.
All-in-all, I’ve seen some amazing results from others and would definitely try to make this a once a week or once every two weeks thing, but I wouldn’t suggest it without numbing cream. I could always be much less aggressive with my rolling, but I don’t know that it would be nearly as effective. I haven’t tried the smallest one made for your face (0.5mm), but I don’t have many facial issues. I do see this being helpful for stretch marks and cellulite, however, and even other skin issues. Puruskin guarantees results in 10 uses. I haven’t made it there yet, but I will keep you posted, with pictures, as time goes on. To rehydrate my clean, rolled skin, I used a mixture of shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil and essential oils I whipped into a butter and it felt heavenly. If you do try derma rolling, be sure to get yours from a reputable company such as Puruskin, don’t ever share yours, disinfect properly, and often, and toss it after 6 months (the needles will get dull on you).
