Spin For Perfect Skin Review3:27 PM
I must start off by saying I've never used a Clarisonic before so I have no idea how it compares. When it comes to skin care I'll admit I've always been very lazy. The most I would do daily is use makeup remover wipes. If I was feeling especially froggy I would use face cleanser and apply with my hands. Well, after experimenting with some bad vitamins that made my face freak out, I decided to finally develop my own skin care routine. I wanted something better than just my hands and purchased this brush. There are so many places to purchase this item, but the cheapest I have found is on Brookstone website. There are several coupon codes online if you search for them. You should never spend more than $30 on this brush or you are getting ripped off!
What it comes with:
- cleansing face brush
- exfoliating facial brush
- pumise stone
- body brush
The exfoliating facial brush was a bust for me. It was too rough and I was not a fan. After attempting to use it a couple times I just set it aside and left it alone.
The pumice stone was one aspect of this I was super excited about. I had read some reviews and watched some videos on this product and the majority of people said this was excellent for your feet. I have rough heels and wanted to give this a go. Big thumbs down. It didn't seem to do a damn thing, pardon my french. I was so disappointed. I tried it dry, I tried it wet and I tried various combinations to get this brush to work. Yes my heel did feel a bit smoother but my skin still looked rough and dry. It appeared as if I didn't use anything on it at all. Honestly, the foot scrubbers from the dollar store worked better than this thing did. Thus far only 1 of the 4 brushes has worked for me.
Lastly the body brush which is basically a large version of the cleaning brush. It worked nicely. Again, it wasn't a miracle worker however it was an enjoyable way to exfoliate. I know some products are too rough or harsh on your skin and can actually hurt. This was a gentle buffing sensation and I did notice my skin was a tiny bit softer. I think the main goal of these brushes is to remove that layer of dead skin so the products you choose can work better.
Overall I think for roughly $30 it's not a bad rotating brush. I hate I can't compare it to the all famous Clarisonic that everyone and their mother raves about. I'm sure you can find comparative reviews online if you google them. I must say it was sad that half of the brushes I all but threw away. But the improvement to my face would make even the 1 brush worth it! This has now become a part of my daily routine at night. I first use makeup remover wipes to remove the majority of my makeup, then I use a cleanser along with the brush. I finish with some moisturizer and I must say I am glad I decided to purchase this brush and I'm glad I decided to finally develop my own skin care routine.
Have you tried this brush before? Or do you have a Clarisonic? How does it work for you?
