I’ve recently been trying out one of the best skincare products (devices?) I’ve used in a long time, the Magnitone Lucid. If you haven’t heard of Magnitone, they offer the Pulsar and the Lucid, both are deep cleansing and exfoliating facial brushes, with the Lucid being Pulsar’s more fashionable, lightweight and travel friendly little sister!
The Lucid comes in a range of bright colours, it’s ergonomic, easy to use and light weight. I can’t compare it to the Pulsar as I don’t have this one but I can tell you the Lucid does everything it says on the tin! The Lucid is small enough to slip into your holiday washbag, it comes equipped with the exclusive Magnitone Active Clean brush head, has a choice of two skin settings (deep clean and sensitive), also a daily facial cleansing timer, which times 20 seconds for each facial ‘zone’, plus a handy wireless travel charger. Oh and did I mention it’s waterproof so you can use it in the shower too? Handy!
It really couldn’t be easier to use, after charging I applied one of my regular cleansers which happened to be Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish to my face, and simply dipped the Lucid in hot water and massaged it over my skin. I was slightly concerned initially that the bristles might upset my dry and sensitive skin, but I needn’t have worried, the bristles were soft – but not too soft – and flexible, making the experience very comfortable and not abrasive at all.
After rinsing my face it was slightly redder than usual but my skin felt completely fine and probably the cleanest it’s ever felt! After using this the first time I decided to double cleanse from then on, meaning I removed the majority of my makeup with a wipe before cleansing with the Lucid, I found this much quicker and easier than putting it straight on a face full of makeup!
As recommended by Magnitone I tried their #7daychallenge where I used the Lucid every day for seven days. By the end of the week I could really see the difference with my skin, as I already mentioned my skin really has never felt cleaner! My complexion was definitely more even and brighter, and my problem areas with dry skin were noticeably improved, this is definitely a winner all round for me!
The Magnitone Lucid is usually £69.99 but can currently be purchased from Lookfantastic for £49.99.
Have you tried the Magnitone Lucid? I’d love to hear your thoughts! I hope you enjoyed my review xx
