I am in my mid thirties. 35 to be exact and I am beginning to concede that certain things in my life need a bit more consideration. Things which previously I hadn’t really seen as much more than a bit of a fuss. Things like a skincare regime. I have had a facial or 2 on the odd sneaky spa day but every day?
I would love to tell you that I cleanse, tone and moisturise
Sadly, I am not a liar so I can’t make that claim. If I am baring all then you should probably know that a quick face wash with some Aldi cleanser is about as good as it gets – most of the time I use baby wipes. Baby wipes have been a loyal and most useful friend.
Receiving an invitation to review the SENSSE ULTRASONIC FACIAL BAR whilst pondering my now impending wrinkles seemed rather serendipitous so of course I agreed.
What’s in the box?
I was pleasantly surprised when my Facial Bar arrived. It comes elegantly packaged in a high quality white cardboard box. The SENSSE ULTRASONIC FACIAL BAR itself is something to behold. You would be forgiven for thinking it might be a microphone (as my 2 year old, Moose, did and does) or something a little more… adult. What it is however, is a white wand measuring 6.5″ tall with rose gold detailing and a power button and 3 LED’s.
What does it do?
Well apparently quite a lot! The SENSSE ULTRASONIC FACIAL BAR claims to;
- ENERGISE AND BRIGHTEN YOUR SKIN – Hot and cool face massager gives your skin an instant refresh that relieves skin fatigue and energises your facial muscles for a lasting, radiant glow.
- SOFTEN AND RELAX FACIAL MUSCLES – The 42°C temperature in hot mode is optimal for increasing blood circulation, relaxing your facial muscles, smoothing wrinkles, and activating cell regrowth.
- REDUCE REDNESS AND SWELLING – Uses optimal 6°C temperature to soothe sore facial muscles, and relieve skin fatigue; Also reduces redness and puffiness to make your skin look bright and beautiful.
- INCREASE MOISTURISER ABSORPTION – Ultrasonic vibrations increase absorption of your moisturiser while cool mode closes pores, locking in your skin care product and preventing dirt and grime buildup.
It looks complicated. How does it work?
It is really not as complicated as it looks at all. Firstly, remove your make up and then press the power button once to activate the “hot mode” and glide the wand all over your face to open your pores.
Next you should grab some moisturiser and either put it on the wand or dot it onto your face and then press the power button twice to switch to “hot mode with vibration”. The ultrasonic vibration is supposed to aid the absorption of your moisturiser.
Lastly, press the power button again to activate “cool mode” and close your pores. Yes you could just put moisturiser onto your hands and rub it into your face but this makes your skin feel so good that you won’t want to go back to your primitive moisturising ways ever again (probably).
Did it work?
In a word. Yes. It worked in that it made me take 5 minutes out of my day to concentrate on myself (which any busy parent knows is something in itself)
It’s too soon to say whether it has made a big difference to my skin but it certainly feels better and I will continue to use it so watch this space!
