Magnitone Lucid Daily Cleanser & Exfoliating Brush

A few weeks ago, you might have seen the hashtag #BHTWITTERPARTY with the lovely people of the bloggers hub, this is the second one I have taken part in and essentially it is an opportunity to tweet and become lucky to try some fabulous products. I was lucky enough to be sent the magnitone lucid* in this fabulous pink shade and having never used one before, despite buying one as a present for my goddaughter, I was excited to give it a go and see what all the fuss is about.

Despite being a blogger for years, I have never tried a cleansing brush before. This Magnitone brush claims to leave your skin not only feeling softer, brighter but also clearer skin in just seven days due to its ability to gently exfoliate and give those pores some deep cleaning, all of which is quite a bold statement to make.

In the box there is an adaptor plug, this is already a huge massive thumbs up from me because the number of products I have bought/been sent which don't have a UK plug with them is really annoying. Not only does it have the plug, but on the bottom of the brush handle is this magnetic plug point, which you can remove whilst using, to helpfully charge it and keep everything together, once fully charged it lasts for 2 weeks before you need to charge it again, so it is a great device for holidays.
Powered by what is referred to as 'Active Electromagnetic Technology™', the Magnitone Lucid uses enhanced electromagnetic pulsations which send rapid vibrations into skin. Sounds quite scary when you read that but what they actually are doing is unclogging those pores whilst sweeping away dry and dead skin cells. This is then said to leave you with that clearer complexion. As you use the brush, it is said that it does over 10,000 movements per minute (wow) and this allows your skin to absorb all those products you put onto it to keep it soft, smooth, wrinkle and line free much better because those lotions, potions, gels and serums don't have to fight their way through the skin, past all that dirt and grime to work their magic.
When it comes to using, the Magnitone Lucid could not be easier, though I would always recommend reading the manual which accompanies it for reference, you need to ensure your face is damp and then taking your cleanser of choice, ensure you have got some on the white brush, (not your face) choose your setting, be it normal or one for those with senstive skin and then once switched on, move it around your face in circular motions.  When I first used this I was quite surprised at how quiet it was compared to what I was expecting, though there is of course some buzzing as you use it.  The bristles on the brush are incredibly soft, so they are not overly abrasive and they don't scratch your skin but you can feel it on the skin.  As you move around your face, I tend to stick to problematic areas for around 20-30 seconds each time I use it, my cleanser, which is a foaming cleanser, gets to work its magic.

My skin is combination. I have an oily tzone with dry patches of skin on both cheeks. I don't have enlarged pores and I do double cleanse every night because living in London, all that pollution is not good for your skin, so to that end, my skin has adapted really well to the Magnitone, bearing in mind I was told not to use one. I don't use the brush every day as I don't feel my skin needs it, but I do use it three times a week currently and I absolutely love it. Like a twit, I deleted all my before photos when trying to free up memory space on my card, but my work colleagues have noticed a difference in my skin. Not only does it feel clean after using the brush, the kind of clean you feel after a really good facial, but it is so soft and smooth and probably in better condition than it has been since I moved to London 15 years ago, that is how impressed I am with this little device. 

The Magnitone Lucid is priced at just £69.99 but right now you can get 20% off, in the colour of your choice using my discount code BLOVE20 so be sure to go and snap one up here quick! (expires 31st July 2015)

Will you be getting yourself a Magnitone Lucid? What do you think of brush cleansers? Do you have a favourite one?

  1. I've never head of the Bloggers Hub. I'll look in to that - thanks for mentioning it :). I have the Clarisonic and love it. I used to use it every night, but have now dropped back to every other - like you, I don't need to cleanse so deeply all the time, and I also don't want to over stress my skin. I've read really good things about the Magnitone and you've clearly had great results with it too. It does look very similar to its rival - similar size, shape and brush head - though it's a heck of a lot cheaper! Tx

  9. This looks so similar to my Clarisonic! It's nice to see several different versions hitting the market though!

    Truth be told, I do neglect my Clarisonic, so I probably won't be getting into the brush trend too much, this sounds like it's a great product though!

  10. I really need to try one of these Magnitone cleansers, I've heard so many good things about them. I have similar cleanser but I don't use it as much as I probably should.

  12. I must be living under a rock because I didn't even know such a thing as an electric bush for your face existed. However, I am quite tempted to give one a try now!

  15. You have the same skin type as me, and strangely enough I have never used a cleansing brush either. They are so popular in the beauty world, so I'm thinking I need to give one a try!

  18. I'm so torn on products like this, I really want to try them for the claims of clearer, smoother skin, but I can't help thinking that they're just going to be too harsh to use on my face :/ I do love the pink colour though!!

  19. I have the worst skin especially on my face.
    Saying that - its actually looking much better since I cut down on fatty foods and sugar.
    This would help I think to get it looking even better.

    Thanks sugar

  22. Rachel, I never used one before as I was afraid a brush would be too abrasive and leave my skin damaged. The Magniton sounds like a lovely tool to have, especially if you live in highly polluted areas or you suffer from problematic skin. I would put one on my wish list for Christmas!xx

  23. I had a brush cleaner a while ago for my terribly clogged pores. I loved it. It got lost when we moved & I haven't got around to getting a new one. I love the look of these, it is definitely on my skin care wish list x
