'This is your holy grail': Shoppers are aglow over this $10 microneedling tool

What is it?

Dewy, flawless skin was once reserved for celebrities. Big-screen-worthy faces. Faces free from wrinkles and acne scars (and pretty much any imperfections that come one's way between puberty and perimenopause). And sure, for those with the dough and the time, microdermabrasion appointments might be a drop in the bucket. But for ordinary folks, they add up — averaging about $167 a pop, according to a 2020 stat from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Well, we've got big news: Now you can reap similar results at home for just $10 with the exfoliating Sdara Skincare Derma Roller.

With hundreds of tiny needles, this roller promises to renew and rejuvenate dull-looking skin with just a few strokes.

Why is it a good deal?

When you consider how much professional skin-care treatments can cost (in the thousands!), paying $10 for such a highly rated at-home device is a steal. We also haven't seen this roller's price dip any lower than it currently is all year, so if you're thinking of getting it, making moves now would be wise.

Why do I need this?

Using 540 teensy 0.25mm titanium microneedles, the Sdara Skincare Derma Roller gently exfoliates to promote a healthy glow and reduce fine lines and scarring. Beginners, fear not; it's simple to use: Just clean the roller and your face, roll three times in one direction and then the other, and moisturize.

This merciful little roller is much gentler on the face and the wallet than in-office treatments, and the shorter needles are great for beginners. Some users claim that this exfoliation tool has shown miraculous healing powers on their damaged, scarred skin. "Sunken/atrophic scars cured!" one shopper rejoiced. "I tried for almost three years [but] the atrophic scars seemed impossible to get rid of. Then I find this. The first time I used it ... I didn’t use enough pressure. The second time ... I was much more ambitious with the pressure. Afterward, I put on the vitamin C serum, then went to bed. I woke up the next day and oh my God. I was completely floored by how different my skin looked. My sunken scars were 70 percent gone. In one night, I had seen more progress than I had in three years. This is your holy grail."

What reviewers say

Don’t just take our word for it. Look to the megafans who've given it more than 19,000 five-star ratings. There's a reason this gadget's getting so much buzz.

Rolls away fine lines

It "actually makes a difference!" said one five-star reviewer. "My skin is looking younger and more 'full' or smooth. ... The roller is super easy to use, and the results are fantastic. ... My favorite time to use this is just before bed, after I've cleaned my face and prior to using a nighttime serum for rejuvenating the skin. This allows the skin time to heal overnight and is the best time for skin to absorb nutrients from skin-care products while also building collagen."

Another user wondered, "How did I live so long without one of these?... I can see fine lines are disappearing and my pores are much more clear. My chin always breaks out at 'that time of the month,' but no breakouts after incorporating this little gadget in my routine."

Saves money (and grief)

"Just so you know, I had the microneedling done [professionally] at $300 a pop with three-inch needles. I bled through this procedure ... it was really hard to take," shared one convert. "For three to four days my face was full of red spots [and] I vowed I'd never go through that again. When I saw a video on this product my first thought: With a 0.25mm I could do this myself. This is my new glam product and I can definitely see a difference in three weeks. ... No blood, no red spots and whatever redness happens, it's gone in a few hours. So I do it every Sunday evening. I love this product."

Another pleased weekly user added: "I first ordered this roller after having a professional microneedling treatment. I was happy with the results, but the treatments were quite expensive. This roller is very easy to use. ... The theory is that the tiny wounds caused by the needles encourage your body to produce collagen in that area. My skin seems more firm and hydrated. I am also seeing some reduction in fine lines and wrinkles."

With all this love from customers and the deep discount from Amazon, this deal is too sweet to roll past.

More than 19,000 five-star reviewers sing the praises of this skin-care tool for the transformative effect it has on acne scars, uneven texture and tone, and even wrinkles.
