As I’ve said many a time on here, I’m a bit of a skincare addict. I love a good pamper and I’m forever trying new products to keep my skin feeling happy and healthy. I’d been wanting to try a cleansing brush for a really long time, so when I was gifted one at Bloggers Fashion Week earlier this year I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I’ve been using it most days since then and thought it was finally time I shared a review of this fab beauty tool.
The idea behind the Magnitone, is to give a deeper cleanse and exfoliate than tradition cleansing methods. Not only does the vibrating brush head give your skin a good scrub (otherwise known as vibra-sonic technology), but it also sends gentle electromagnetic vibration deep under the surface of the skin. This process opens up blocked pores and naturally shakes out the impurities that cause breakouts and black heads.
You can use the brush with your normal cleanser or facewash and I’ve used it with a variety of skincare products, all with great results. Using the brush helps prepare the skin for better moisturiser absorbtion and creates the perfect base for applying make-up. If you’re a fan of fake tan it’s a great tool for getting your skin nice and smooth for an even application.
Using the brush takes about 1 minute a day, I use it in the morning as part of my regular skin care routine. It has the advantage of being waterproof so you can use it in the the bath or shower. There are two modes ‘deep clean’ and ‘sensitive’ so you can tailor your routine to your skin type. It also has a handy feature where it beeps when you need to change the area of your face you are cleansing.
The model I received is a limited edition collaboration with Pixie Lott, which comes in a lovely bright pink. The brush came boxed and the set includes instructions, a matching pink headband and the charger. The brush charges with a magnetic charger which is really handy.
I’ve always had very clear skin so I can’t really judge if it has reduced breakouts, however my skin has definitely felt really soft and glowy after using it and it absolutely feels smoother. I’ve found that my daily cleanse is a lot quicker when I use the brush. All in all I’m really happy with the quality of the product and the results. It’s definitely something I will continue to use.
Magnitone also have a selection of other products for different needs, some with interchangeable brushes and different features for your age and skin needs. You can find out more about their products on the Magnitone website.
The Magnitude Lucid retails at £69.99 although it is currently reduced to £45 on Amazon.
