Suggestions for gentle exfoliation

I'm noticing some dead skin just hanging around on my face. It's especially obvious when applying foundation. I'd like to scrub this off, but my skin is quite sensitive and prior exfoliation attempts (St. Ives, Clean & Clear) have been irritating. Can you suggest any products or methods that would make for a really gentle exfoliation? Thanks!

Home Microdermabrasion

Has anyone ever used a home microdermabrasion kit? I'm on Retin-A, it's wintertime, and I exfoliate a ton. I need something to help slough it all off a few times a week. Via Froogle, I stumbled on a few handheld units that help exfoliate with a little rotating brush, but don't seem to simultaneously vaccuum away the dead skin like the machines in the dermatologist's office--sorry so graphic! Just wondering if anyone's had the pleasure/displeasure of doing this from home.
