Magnitone Lucid* | 7 Day First Impressions


Clear skin is my ultimate goal, so I jumped at the chance to try the Magnitone Lucid Cleansing Brush*.  You've all heard me bang on about how amazing the No7 version is, so I thought I would try this one to see how they compared and delve deeper into the world of electronic facial devices....or just cleansing brushes really! I was kindly sent this by Magnitone and was able to choose the colour of my device.  As you can tell from the picture above, I chose 'plush pink' but it is also available in mint green, blue and yellow.  I don't know about you, but having things in pretty colours always makes me more inclined to use it, plus it matches my bathroom perfectly so I don't have to hide it away!

This product claims to leave your skin clearer, softer and brighter skin within 7 days.  I have only been using it once a day, and I am still at what you call the 'purging stage'.  I'm not sure whether this is because I'm only using it once a day or whether exam stress is just getting to me and its nothing to do with the product.  I have noticed softer and brighter skin though! My makeup goes on a lot more smoothly and I have had a huge boost of radiance since using this.  I don't find that it strips or overdries my skin either, as it seems to be slightly more gentle than my No7 one.

This product has 2 modes, Daily clean which gives you a deep clean and sensitive mode which is very gentle and as the name would suggest, targeted more toward sensitive and easily irritated skin. It also has a 'beeping system' if you will.  You start with your forehead and brow area until the first beep, and then your cheeks until the second beep, and then your nose and chin area until it automatically turns off.  I find this helps me to make sure that my whole face gets an equal amount of cleansing and I then know when enough is enough! Over cleansing dries my skin out massively and it's just all a hot mess!  I personally prefer the Daily Clean mode which gives me the perfect amount of cleansing action! It gets rid of any residual makeup and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean! I have also been using this product in conjunction with my Sebamed clear skin kit* which I will have a review of up soon.  It allows me to go to bed knowing that my face is completely clean which makes me feel a lot more comfortable!

It is very compact and travel friendly, also coming with multiple adapters for the charger! It also comes with a cover to go over the brush so you can toss it in your bag with no fear of it getting damaged or caked in bacteria.   It is also 101% waterproof, so it is perfect for use in the shower to save time! It's charge lasts 2 weeks which I think is amazing and is highly convenient for those of you with a busy lifestyle! If only they made phones like that!

Overall, I think this is a fantastic product and is definitely a worth investment.  If you would like to purchase one of these, you can use the code 'EmilyR20' for 20% off and I will also have a referral link in my Affiliate Links Page above (I am not affiliated my Magnitone in any way).
