Advantages Dermalogica Exfoliating Face Brush, gentle on the skin, removes dirt and debris
|Does it dehydrate your skin?|
|Value for money|
A few weeks ago I finished a product testing trial on Dermalogica products. I was asked to use them for 4 weeks on a daily basis and record my thoughts, views, skin changes and a few other things to watch for alongside this. I always enjoy doing these sort of trials and have over the course of a few years been lucky to test some really fabulous products which I now use regularly and some really rubbish products which I will never use again, even if they do come for free!When it comes to using products on my face I am always quite careful as to what I do and do not agree to test. The main reason being that I do have sensitive skin and on my face particularly it reacts quite badly to certain ingredients, which over the years of product testing I have managed to work out what will and will not cause skin flare ups. However, when it comes to Dermalogica I have been quite lucky in that my skin has always ended up in a much better condition after using something than it was before I started, but I'm just too mean to part with the money to buy the products out of my own pocket most of the time.
Back in 2009 I bought the Neutrogena Wave which I liked a lot, the downside being it got quite shabby quickly and I had to replace it, the batteries and keep buying the pads and I also grew bored. But I liked the results it gave and over time I haven't managed to find anything to place it. Then I did this product test which gave me a facial cleansing wash called 'The Essential Cleanser' and a facial exfoliating brush which both arrived in a cardboard box in their original packaging with a print off which stated:"This ultra-gentle brush works with your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser or Clean Bar to gently exfoliate dulling surface debris and impurities for effective cleansing. The Dermalogica Exfoliating Face Brush is great for sensitive skin that still wants an exfoliating boost and contains no artificial fragrance or colour. It also comes in a convenient travel case".
The facial brush was tightly packaged in a plastic box which was totally see through and around the middle was a label detailing what the product was 'The face brush' and who the manufacturer was 'Dermalogica'. The lid of the box was simply one you pull of and that was really easy to do and in size the box was no bigger than a tube of toothpaste and the brush itself reminds me of a dish washing brush but half the size.The brush is the Dermalogica silver colour and it has bright white bristles which feel slightly smooth to the touch though harsh enough to exfoliate the skin, they are made of nylon which allows the bristles to dry quickly making them very hygienic.
The idea of the brush is to enhance exfoliation of the face and for this you have to be quite careful about which products you use and how you use them to avoid bright red skin and scratching the skin because the skin on your face is quite tender. My problem is that I have an oily t-zone (chin, nose and forehead) but dry cheeks and when the weather is changing from wet, to cold to warm like it has done over the weekend and today, I notice a change in my skin and have to moisturise and exfoliate more regularly otherwise my skin looks and feels terrible.
Whilst the bristles are working on your skin you can decide how much pressure you need to apply, but remember the more you press the harder the bristles will be to your skin. You can feel the bristles on your skin as they work their way around and it is the perfect size for getting to hard to reach places like between your eyebrows and just under your eye. Then once you have finished washing, cleansing and exfoliating your face you simply rinse the brush in tepid water and allow it to dry.
To purchase this brush it would cost you anywhere between £9 and £15 depending on where you shop and knowing what I know now having tried and tested it, I would happily purchase it for that price and highly recommend it.
