A few weeks ago I was in talks with Magnitone, and they kindly sent over one of their new Magnitone BareFaced! I had never tried one of their famous devices which is plastered all over the bloggersphere, so I was extrememly excited to be given the chance. I was given two weeks to give it a go, so I will definitely update you all in a few months to see the long term effects. Firstly, I am in love with the colour! They've bought out 3 shades, pastel green, pastel yellow and this gorgeous shade - pastel pink. I love that they're catching onto the pastel trend, they look super cute! I really love the presentation of this in the box, it really makes something that could be quite scary into something that is very easy to use. This isn't something that you need to take your time with getting used to - It's so simple and pretty much fool proof!
As you can see, the instructions are all on the packaging. There is a little manual on the inside that I recommend you read before using, just to reassure yourself! To get this baby up and running they recommend you pop it on charge for 8 hours. The charger is really easy to use - It's a USB cable so just pop it into a USB plug and then you're away. This little magnetic pad really fascinates me - just pop it onto the bottom and it holds in place. The light pops on to show that it's getting juice!
You press the button once to cleanse. It beeps every 20 seconds for easy cleansing for your T-Zone, then your neck and then your cheeks! I love this feature as you know exactly when to change and how long to use without over doing it. I wet my brush (It's 100% waterproof - yay for cleaning faces in showers!) and pop a teeny bit on cleanser or face wash on the brush. I only use a small bit as the vibrations creates a foam quite quickly, and you don't want an overly foamy face! Let the vibrations do it for you. Don't scrub or rub your face with it, just let it glide over your face and let it do the work. The second setting on the Magnitone is a toning workout for your face. It pulses on the face giving you a lovely soft glow. I love using this setting, and secretly my boyfriend does too. Every time I use it he's hovering around the bathroom waiting for his turn. The bristles are super soft so don't worry about any potential scratching - that wont happen! You can buy a variety of different brushes on their website at different prices if you wish to personalise your skin care routine further, which is an added bonus and something I would look into. I'd love to see if they made a difference!
My verdict? Honesty, I'm in love. I adore washing my face now, and it's something I really look forward too (So easily pleased). When I use it I can really tell the difference, and my skin feels amazing straight afterwards. I've used it for two weeks, and the first few days I had some teeny tiny spots appear, but it said in the manual that it's completely normal for a break out as your face is just adjusting to the pulses. They cleared after a few days, and the following week I had no spots at all. None! I used the brush every morning and night, taking my makeup off first and then going in for a deep clean with this bad boy. It's something that I - and the boyfriend - will continue to use for a long time to come. I'm so happy with this and it really has changed my skin care routine for the better. I can't imagine not using this now! If you're looking for a change in your routine, something new or you're wanting a deeper clean, I would recommend picking one of these up. Again, I will update everyone in the next few months about the difference it has made in the long run.
