Poor Man's Clarisonic

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

In this recent post, we mentioned that we were on that fabled quest to achieve perfect skin. This is quest is almost as windy as a trip to Mordor but hey ho!

We promised to review a little brush that has made huge changes to the texture of our skin and banished all spots except the one mother nature sends every month, you cannot have it all!


The little brush in all its glory!

This round brush can be used with cleansers, facial washes and exfoliators.
  • Enhances cleansing
  • Shaped to follow facial contours
What we think

We love this brush! This brush get all the gunk out ( as a girl living in Nairobi, you cannot escape the pollution and dust) and leaves your face feeling oh so smooth! We have craters for pores and this brush gets right in there and pulls everything out. So far Winning!

How do we use it?The brush works well with both soap bars and liquid facial washes, we use the ones below i.e. Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleaning Facial Wash and the super cheap and efficient Dove Beauty Bar. You basically pour some facial wash onto the brush or rub the brush on the soap, wet your face then rub the brush in circles on your face. You should gently rub it around your face for about two minutes. Once you are done, rinse your face and the brush then apply your moisturiser of choice. We use the brush 2-3 times a week, using it too often can be overkill!



If you would like a video showing how we use the brush..just leave a comment in the box! What skincare products or tips are you guys using to get the fabled perfect skin?
