If there’s been one hyped-up beauty product in recent years that has given me serious FOMO, it’s the facial cleansing brush. Designed to deep-clean, exfoliate and tone, it seemed like the product my skin was crying out for – and like a lot of women, it was top of my Christmas list (okay, maybe second after a puppy – that’s a dream I’m never giving up on, dammit).
So, you can imagine my absolute delight when the amazing Magnitone London Vibra-Sonic™ Facial Cleansing Brush* arrived at Casa de Claire, right in time to get my skin glowing for Christmas. In a stunning limited edition rose gold finish, the skincare tool instantly caught my attention – who wouldn’t want this pretty addition to their bathroom? But mainly I was excited to put the Magnitone to the test and see if these brushes are worth the hype.
The Vibra-Sonic Cleansing Brush from the limited edition Shimmer Collection comes complete with two brush heads, including the Vibra-Sonic Facial Brush, for every day use, and the Stimulator Brush Head, for addition toning and product absorption. The brush comes with some charge already in it, so I had a play straight away – and it was love at first brush. The rotating brush head helped to buff the cleanser into my skin without feeling at all abrasive, and the handy 20-second beep function tells you when to move on to the next part of your face.
After just my first go, my skin felt squeaky clean and smooth – and now after a few days I think I’m already noticing a difference in the appearance of my pores and blackheads. I have been warned that you can initially break out when you start using cleansing brushes, and to be honest I’m expecting to as this is such a big difference to my normal skincare regime (which lately has essentially been ‘waft a face wipe around for a bit and hope for the best’). However, so far so good and I’m excited to see how my skin improves in the coming weeks. As well as the two brush heads and USB charger, this particular Magnitone set also comes with a very cute travel bag and a 12 month warranty. With the two colour choices of Rose Gold and Serenity Blue, I think the Shimmer Collection in particular makes a lovely Christmas gift (though the sold out pastel green one would be a close second choice for me!)
If you’re looking to pick up a Magnitone London cleansing brush for a loved one or yourself, there are plenty of places to buy including Boots, Argos, Look Fantastic, Feel Unique, Amazon, and of course direct from Magnitone. They usually retail at £89.99, but in the run-up to Christmas there’s a huge 44% off so you can grab one for just £49.99!
