As you may know by now, I am very passionate about the topic of skincare and spend a lot of my free time researching and trying different products that can improve the condition of your skin. One product that seemed to pop up regularly was face cleansing brushes. You’ll find many conflicting reviews on different face brushes online, some saying that they are a waste of money and others claiming that they are a ‘life saver’. I wanted to try one for myself so that I could form my own opinion on the product.
I looked into a lot of different brands and decided that I would try the Vanity Planet ‘Spin For Perfect Skin’ as it was highly rated by a bunch of beauty bloggers. I purchased the product at the beginning of May 2017 and have been using it every day for the past 4 months. I bought the brush in the hopes that it would help to clear my breakouts and removed dead skin cells.
Here’s my experience with the product.
The Spin Brush comes with four detachable heads for both the face and body. These include a daily cleansing brush, an exfoliating facial brush, a body brush and a pumice stone. You can choose from a range of 6 different coloured handles (of course I chose pink). One reason I was drawn to the brush is that it is 100% cruelty free. It also runs on batteries which I liked as I can be very forgetful and wouldn’t remember to charge the product after each use.
What It Does
The product claims to do the following:
- Reduce pore size
- Cleanse and exfoliate to reveal radiant skin
- Remove bacteria from the skin
- Remove dead skin cells
After One Month
I started by using the daily cleansing brush twice a day in conjunction with my usual cleanser. I would first wet the brush with warm water, add some product and use the brush for about a minute on my skin. Twice a week I used the exfoliating brush head to target dry flaky skin and blackheads.
In the first week I didn’t notice a huge difference other than a reduction in the amount of dry skin on my face. I still had many blemishes and blackheads in my t-zone. However, I continued to incorporate the brush into my daily skincare routine in the hopes that it would live up to my expectations.
I loved using the body brush in the shower as it wasn’t very harsh and found pumice stone to work efficiently.
After using the ‘Spin for Perfect Skin’ for four weeks I noticed a big improvement in the texture and appearance of my skin. Not only had my dry patches completely disappeared but there was also a huge reduction in the amount of blemishes and blackheads. I also noticed that my pores had shrunken slightly.
After Four Months
I still use the ‘Spin for Perfect Skin’ on a daily basis. I use the cleansing brush head once a day before I go to bed. I have found that once a day is enough to use the product as my skin doesn’t need to be thoroughly cleaned after waking up. I use the exfoliating brush once a week in the shower as I find that this is when any dry skin on my face has softened and I don’t need to concentrate the brush on one area for longer than a few seconds.
There is now a glow to my skin that I have never had before and I’ve managed to clear up the majority of the breakouts around my t-zone. I have also noticed a significant reduction in the amount of oil that my skin produces on a daily basis. My acne has not disappeared completely but I am aware that a lot of my blemishes are due to an imbalance in my hormones, something that can’t be helped by topical skincare.
I can honestly say that the Vanity Planet ‘Spin for Perfect Skin’ does exactly what is promised. I accidentally left my spin brush behind after leaving home for a few days and experienced a huge breakout. Upon returning, I was able to clear up the blemishes in no time once I incorporated the brush back into my skincare routine. I never found the product to be too harsh and I have not yet replaced my brush heads as they are still in perfect condition. I would 100% recommend this product to anybody who is looking to improve the condition of their skin.
I hope that this review can be of help to anybody who is looking into purchasing the ‘Spin for Perfect Skin’!
Until next time,
