I have spoken before about how tricky it has been to try and change my beauty regime to be both more ethical and environmentally friendly. I have been really trying to avoid exfoliators that have those little microbeads in that get washed out into our oceans and so finding another way to exfoliate was really important to me. Luckily, I was offered the opportunity to try out the ‘Go! Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush’ by Sensse Beauty and it has completely changed they way I look after my skin.
I ordered it from Amazon and since I have Prime it arrived the next day. First off, let’s take a second to talk about the packaging. White with rose gold detailing. The dream.
You could easily be fooled into thinking it had the latest iPad inside, it was so sophisticated. It would make such a great gift as it looks so high end. When I opened it up I wasn’t disappointed either.
You get two brush heads, one of which is more exfoliating and recommended for use only once or twice a week. They clip easily on and off the device and it is all very lightweight and sleek. You are advised to charge it before first use so it comes with a USB lead for that and I just left mine to charge overnight. Once charged you should get around 180 uses out of it. You press the button once for the brush head to spin fairly slowly, once more to speed it up and one more press turns the whole thing off.
It is completely cordless and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. Not only that, but it is shower proof too so its a great time saver for a busy mum like me who has about 3 minutes a day away from my 3 year old to clean myself. Also, full disclaimer, said 3 year old dropped it in the bath the other day and it is still working just fine… though I did rescue it pretty quickly.
I have been using mine everyday with a gel cleanser and then following it up with a facial oil and my skin feels amazing (check out my blogpost about my favourite cruelty free skincare products).
It just gives me a nice smooth base to apply make up on to which, as someone who only has a few minutes to spend applying make up, is a bonus. It also just looks beautiful in my bathroom, with its clean white lines and rose gold button it is just an Instagram dream. My only request would be some kind of travel bag, like you get with some of the other Sensse Beauty products. Though this is the perfect size for popping in your case when you are travelling, the bristles can retain a bit of moisture so if it had its own bag that would be quite nice.
I have been using this for about two weeks now, pretty much every day. So far so good, but of course if anything changes you will be the first to know.
