Review: Magnitone Lucid Cleansing Brush

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve become obsessed with skincare,  I’m constantly on the hunt for various products that will fix the multitude of problems I have with my skin. So when, a new ‘gadget’ made it’s way on to the scene, in the form of electric cleansing brushes and took the skincare market by storm, I knew I had to get my hands on one.

I originally bought a budget version of a cleansing brush, just to see how I got on with it and whether I liked the concept before shelling out money on a more expensive but higher quality version. I really enjoyed using the budget version so I knew I was going to upgrade, so imagine how happy I was when I was offered the chance to review a Magnitone Lucid* for you guys.

When I first picked up the Magnitone I was so surprised at how light it was, and how easily it fitted within my hand. For some reason I was expecting it to be quite weighty but this wasn’t the case at all, although it definitely doesn’t feel too light or cheap either.

The Magnitone is fully waterproof so it can be used in the bath or shower, which is really handy for me as I much prefer to wash my face in the shower than over the sink. I do find, that due to how fast this little device spins, if you have cleanser on your face and attempt to use over the sink, the first couple of seconds it will spray out and onto the mirror. As it’s fully waterproof, it has a snazzy wireless charger which can be used by clipping the magnetic ‘Clink’ charger onto the front of the brush handle at the base, and a red light appears. I love the fact that this is rechargeable, as my budget version ran from batteries, which is both a pain, and costly in the long run.

Before using the Magnitone for the first time, it is advised that it should be charged for 24 hours, but of course, I couldn’t wait this long. I let it to charge for about 10 hours before my first use, then popped it back on charge afterwards. A full charge takes 12 hours, but will last for 2 weeks worth of use, which definitely makes the Magnitone travel friendly.

The Magnitone Lucid has two different cleansing modes, deep clean and sensitive, so it can be used by those of you that have sensitive skin as well. Magnitone recommend using it on the sensitive mode for the first couple of days, so that your skin gets used to it, but since I had previously been using a cleansing brush, I just went straight into Deep Clean mode.

My favourite part of the Magnitone is the fact that it has an inbuilt facial cleansing timer. This beeps every 20 seconds to remind you to move onto the next section of your face, then automatically shuts off after 1 minute. I like to spend 20 seconds on each of my cheeks and my chin, then a further 20 seconds on my forehead,  and it will then switch off. I then turn my Magnitone back on and use the sensitive mode to spend 20 seconds on my nose. I switch to sensitive mode as I find the deep cleanse mode tickles my nose too much.

The Magnitone Lucid is powered by Active Electromagnetic Technology that pulsates, and sends rapid vibrations into the skin. This will then naturally unclog pores, and sweep away dead and dry skin cells, leaving a clearer complexion. It sends out over 10,000 movements per minute, so that your skin is better prepared to absorb all your skincare products. I love that you can use your Magnitone with any existing cleanser you own, just to make it work that bit harder for your skin. I’ve been using a variation of Nip + Fab’s Deep Cleansing Fix as well as Sebamed’s Clear Face Cleanser (review here) and I love what a difference my Magnitone makes.

When I first started using my Magnitone Lucid, I did break out around my chin area but Magnitone do warn that this may happen. They say;

“You may experience some adverse changes to your skin condition after the first few days of using Magnitone Lucid. This is completely normal as your skin adjusts to the new cleansing method. This happens because the Magnitone Lucid is slowly bringing up the deep-rooted oily impurities from your pores onto the surface of the skin”

I have acne prone skin, so it’s not unusual for me to break out at all, usually happening around the time of the month or when I change my skincare routine. Normally the angry spots and blemishes can last for about a week and a half before they disappear but I think my Magnitone has really influenced this in a great way.

After breaking out and using the Magnitone daily, my skin has improved so much and the spots and blemishes disappeared within about 4 days, which is incredible for me. Since the initial breakout, no further spots or blemishes have reared their ugly heads, and the quality of my skin is incredible. It feels softer, smoother and much brighter, which is exactly what Magnitone promise within 7 days. I honestly feel that the Magnitone lives up to it’s claims.

Overall, I’m really really impressed with my Magnitone and will definitely continue to use it on a daily basis in my skincare routine. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to switch up their skincare, has really problematic skin, or just wants to make their normal cleanser work that bit harder. If you fancy reading more about Magnitone, or even purchasing a cleansing brush for yourself, their range is here.

    • Yeah I’ve heard that some people with really sensitive skin still find the sensitive mode on here too much for their skin, so a manual brush sounds the best! x
