The Remington Facial Brush
This product is one of my favourite ever skincare products, and it’s quickly become a product I can’t live without. The Remington Facial Brush is an electronic cleansing brush which assists with getting the best facial cleanse possible. This brush claims to offer 10x better cleansing than a manual cleanse, as it penetrates deep into the skin to help dislodge stubborn oil, dirt, and makeup from deep within the pores. As it cleans, it both oscillates and vibrates, offering the ultimate deep cleanse.
This brush comes with three interchangeable heads – a normal one, one for sensitive skin, and a massage head which can be used to revitalize and re-invigorate the skin. This one feels a bit weird to begin with, but you do start to get used to it. While I do like the normal head, I’ve opted to use the sensitive ones as they are just a little gentler.
The brush itself is ergonomically designed, making it easy to get a good grip on. It’s actually quite a stylish looking brush, and I love the colour combo of the mint and the white. Both the brush and the charging stand are really compact and sleek, so they look nice sitting in the bathroom and don’t take up too much space. As well as the three heads and charging equipment, you also get a very cute white makeup bag, which is made of plastic so it can be wiped clean.
The Facial Brush is waterproof, so it can be used in the shower as part of your morning or evening routine. I like to use my brush at night with my cleanser and being able to use it in the shower makes life so much easier. After I’ve removed most of my makeup with a warm flannel, I rub a generous amount of my normal cleanser on to my face, and then use the Remington Facial Cleansing Brush. It has a one minute cycle, that is split into 3 x 20 second portions. This is an awesome way to ensure you are not over or under cleaning your face! I like to do 20 seconds on one side of my face, 20 seconds on the other side, and 20 on my forehead and nose. Sometimes I’ll also go back in for another few seconds on my chin as this is the part of my face I have the most troubles with.
I’ve been using this brush for well over a year now, and it’s really become an essential part of my skincare routine! I even take it away with me when I travel, as my skin just doesn’t feel as clean when I cleanse using just my fingers. I use the normal brush every morning and every night and I haven’t noticed that it has irritated or dried out my skin. I do go very lightly on my sensitive areas (around my nose and my cheeks) and tend to focus on the T-zone area.
The Remington Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush retails for $159 and is available at Harvey Norman, Noel Leemings, and other Remington stockists. The brush heads are a little trickier to find, and the only place I’ve spotted them is online at Briscoes
AFTER NOTE: About a month after I wrote this post, my beloved Remington Brush started having a few issues. It wouldn’t turn on properly, and then later on it started turning on itself. I tried charging it again and the battery only held a charge for about a day before it just wouldn’t work again. I did some research about getting a new brush, however it seems that they are almost phasing these brushes out as I couldn’t find them anywhere. The brush heads were also on clearance at Briscoes, so I think they must definitely be on the way out, which is such a shame. I’ve ended up buying a Clarisonic, so I’ll let you know how it goes in a blog post soon.
