My Skin: Magnitone Review

Magnitone Brush Review

Since I started blogging, I have had some amazing comments and feedback on my posts (thanks y'all!!) and especially on my instagram. One thing that surprised me is that I'm often asked which foundation I use or get comments saying that my skin looks good. Which to me is CRAZY!! I've never thought that my skin was great. I mean, it could be a lot worse and I know that I'm lucky really, but I've always had oily-combination skin. I totally did NOT wake up like this, if you know what I'm saying! So this week, I'll be talking about the products that I have been trialling in my quest for perfect skin...

A couple of years ago, I was suffering from a bit of a breakout, so I invested in a Clarisonic. Well, Millie Mackintosh had mentioned that she used one and her skin always looked amazing, so I was like, THAT'S IT! That will be my miracle cure!! Sadly, it wasn't to be! I think I overused the brush and my sensitive-oily-combination skin just couldn't handle it :-/ I have since spoken to one of my blogger buddies about this and when I told her that I had used my Clarisonic twice a day, she looked at me in disbelief. (Yeah, apparently this is a big no-no?! Who knew.) So, the Clarisonic ended up on eBay and I continued on with my aim to find those unicorn-like products that would shrink my pores, erase fine lines and above all stop those pesky break outs!!

Enter the Magnitone!

Magnitone Brush Review

I recently took part in a Twitter chat with Bloggers Love Hub and as a result was extreeeemely lucky to be gifted my very own magical Magnitone brush*! If you haven't heard of a Magnitone brush before, the aim is to give your skin a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation. Over 7 days you should see brighter, smoother skin. Sounds good, right?

I have to admit, that after my experience with Clarisonic, I was a bit nervous about experiencing the same problem with the Magnitone. But, there is actually a "Sensitive skin" setting on the handle, so I opted for this and used the brush combined with the gentle, Sebamed Clear Face Soap that I am currently using. When in use, the brush vibrates for a total of 1 minute, but beeps every 20 seconds so that you can move this onto the different areas of your face.

Rock On Holly Review Magnitone

The Results:

Magnitone do pre-warn you that as you are doing a "deep cleanse" some breakouts are to be expected during the first 7 days, and I did suffer from this. (Funnily enough, the spots that developed were in exactly the same places as they were with the Clarisonic - but luckily not as extreme!) If you do have a special occasion or big event coming up, then I would recommend giving yourself at least 10 days before to use this and whilst your skin adjusts...

I am currently using my Magnitone once a day, in the evening and it really does do a brilliant job of exfoliating / cleansing. I do think that with oily skin, the main cause of breakouts is a build up of dead skin cells / make up not being removed properly etc, so a good cleanse and exfoliation really makes a difference to me.

I have just come to the end of my first 10 days so the breakout that developed during my initial deep cleansing period is now clearing up and I am starting to see the benefits of the Magnitone deep cleanse! :-) I am happy to say that this has now become a regular part of my beauty regime! I think that the Magnitone combined with my Sebamed cleanser is a good combination as the Sebamed clear range is quite gentle on your skin.

FYI: Part 2 of my skin care will be ging live this Friday lunchtime (1pm) with more info on the Sebamed skincare range that I have been using.
