The need for clearer, smoother and younger looking skin has always been amongst every woman’s top ten priorities in the world of beauty…ESPECIALLY as we age! Eventually as the years go by, that priority will become our number one point of concern!
Facial brushes has become exceedingly popular over the past few years, with brands making promises of clearer looking skin after every use, but does it really work? and more importantly, do our skin really need all of that extra ‘cleansing’ as it were?
I was given the opportunity to test this theory out on myself after Vitagoods contacted me asking whether or not I would be interested to try out one of their top selling facial brushes ‘Spin for Perfect Skin’. The name sounded promising enough so naturally I was more than intrigued to try it out. The shipping was nothing short of efficient, and I was impressed that within just a few days to one week I received my brushes!
There are altogether 4 different types of brush heads that came with the set (Click here for a more in depth look at each one!) and at first glance, the bristles were quite soft to the touch & I really liked that so many variety of brushes were provided to deep clean certain parts of your body. For the purpose of this review, I tested out primarily the main cleansing facial brush (the softest one) for a period of 3 weeks, therefore I didn’t really get a lot of time to properly test out the other brush heads.
My first initial experience with the cleansing brush was actually a pretty good one! I have never actually used a cleansing brush before therefore when I used it the first time I felt as though it did what it was meant to do..deep clean my face and ridding it of all traces of dirt and makeup grime. However, the problem was what I experienced the following morning. I found a tiny cluster of small pimples around the middle area of my brows and a slight one coming up on my right cheek, which frankly left me feeling quite puzzled. I assumed that since I have never really deep cleansed my skin that thoroughly before, the cleansing process from the night before pretty much stripped my skin off natural oils causing my skin to promptly react and break out a little due to irritation. After using it consecutively 3 nights in a row, I decided to give up since my skin was already starting feel quite raw from using it too much. My skin is naturally very dry and super thin, which may be the reason why I could not personally use the cleansing brushes on a daily basis as recommended, and although the bristles felt soft but spinning against my face it felt very abrasive and rather harsh 🙁 which was unfortunate because I was really prepared to like this product after seeing so many great reviews on it previously.
So…for me personally, I was not able to use this product on an everyday basis, however if I were to use it less regularly, say once every two weeks or even once a month, I am sure it would have served a better purpose. This product is best suited for ladies who are already quite familiar with facial brushes, since your skin would have gotten used to the bristles unlike mine. If you are a rookie at facial brushes like I am or if you have acne prone skin, look for something a little bit more gentle so that it won’t irritate or cause breakouts!
Bottom line, this may be better suited for others but for me I think I am just going to stick to using my hands for everyday cleansing lol… and maybe once in a while use these brushes for exfoliating purposes!
