BUY THIS NOW!!
on May 8, 2012
*Original review May 8th 2012* I am not the type of girl to tell people to go drop this much money on something to clean your face. But seriously, buy this thing now. My pores are smaller, my skin feels SO ridiculously clean I am staring at the mirror every five seconds in disbelief. You can't even see my pores on my nose, it looks like I just got airbrushed. This is the second day I have used this little guy but wow what a change! I didn't have perfect skin before this but it wasn't terrible. Just really combination skin, a lot of dry patches, oily around my nose, lot of black heads ETC. After two days of use my skin is like butter, make up goes on freakishly well. I was used to exfoliating my skin every other week and doing a mask roughly every week. To be honest I wasn't cleaning my skin after wearing make up, and I sucked at moisturizing. I am now moisturizing with a VERY SMALL amount of coconut oil, which I also really recommend. The one thing I wasn't happy with about this product is the fact the brush for normal skin (black ring in the center) had bent bristles. The brushes come with little plastic covers which are fantastic for storing them, they have holes so they drain well, I recommend twisting the brush in the plastic cover after putting it on to make sure the bristles are straight. The other brushes were fine. It comes with a sensitive skin brush, the pure white, and also a body buffing brush, the black outer ring one. Has a facial cleanser that smells so delicious I am probably going to buy the full size and a microdermabrasion cream which I didn't care much for. I got mine from Make me Heal from a groupon promotion but I wish I would've bought it off amazon because it took a full month to get it and then I had the brush issue. Another thing I thought was weird was in the instruction booklet it says it comes with a storage pouch but it wasn't included in mine, nor was it advertised on the groupon so I wasn't too upset. These are minor drawbacks and really not a big deal, but it did loose a star due to it. The device appears to be working perfectly, and I love the thing to pieces all ready. I will do an update after using it for a few weeks just to verify everything is working well.
*UPDATE July 12th, 2012* So I said I would do an update and this is it. The device is still working perfectly and I am amazed at how long the battery lasts. I don't use it everyday anymore because I noticed I was getting red splotchy skin (too much exfoliation). But I use it now every time I shower, specifically in the shower(every other day) because it doesn't matter if soap or water gets splattered everywhere and it's waterproof... Still gives my skin that healthy, clean, freakishly smooth glow. I found my favorite way of using it is with my favorite facial cleanser... organic milk. Sound crazy? Try it on those blackheads on your nose. Even the 2% stuff in your fridge works with a cotton ball but organic + this little beauty works the best. Just dip the bristles and rinse everything off after washing your face. My favorite brush head is by far the body buffer brush, I had breakouts every now and then on random areas on my body. I don't want to elaborate on them but they have completely stopped now. I've noticed that the body buffer brush bristles are starting to poke out a little further from the rest of the brush, but they don't come out and the brush still works just as when I got it. After a couple months of use, I still highly recommend it.
