The last few weeks I have been using the SENSSE Go! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush and ExfoliatorΒ to see if using a brush rather than just using my cleanser on my hands would make a difference.

SENSSE Go! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator

The Sensse go comes with two different heads: sensitive brush head or exfoliating brush head. I would advise using the sensitive one daily and then the exfoliating once or twice a week depending on how sensitive your skin is. I found this worked well for me πŸ™‚

The brush comes with a charger and each charge lasts approx 180 uses which is a lot! This means it is good to use at home or you can take it travelling if needed. As it is waterproof you can use it in the shower or bath if you prefer to wash your face in there rather than over the sink.

After using the brush for a week I really started to notice a difference. It makes your skin so much cleaner than you ever could by washing it just with your hands and your favourite cleanser as it pulsates and really helps get the product in to your pores and really cleans them out!

I found the design of the brush really easy to hold and to move around my face. I also really like the colour of the device.

I would really recommend one of these as they are only Β£39.99 which is really reasonable compared to other facial brushes out there. It is great to get into a routine of using this daily and using this with some of my new acne products I have really noticed a difference in the amount of breakouts I have and my skin is really starting to clear up.

My acne has been causing me all sorts of grief recently. I had it under control and cam off my acne medication and cut down on dairy in my diet and my skin was looking really good but then it just got really bad again. I am having so many make up free days now as I am trying to help it recover but I wasn’t even sure if that was working.Not matter what skincare I was using it either didn’t do anything or it was too harsh and made it worse. i decided to stop messing around trying lots of different things and gave the Goldfaden facial wash a go as well as the facial detox mask.

I have been using these two for a good few weeks now along with a couple of other products that I have always used, so these are the only things I have changed.

After using the facial wash for a few days I started to notice I wasn’t getting any new breakouts and my skin was feeling really soft and clean from using this just once a day. It feels really kind and gentle to your skin as often acne specific products can be really drying and harsh but this was just what I needed.

I also used the detox mask twice a week to give my face that extra deep cleanse. It really soothed my skin as well as getting deep into the pores to give my skin a good deep clean and to help get rid of dead skin cells and blocked pores.

I am so impressed by these products and so glad I found them as they really have helped with my skin.

I do love a good full body scrub now and again. It is important to get rid of any dead skin cells and to have an exfoliate at least once a week.

Hempz : Pomegranate sugar body scrub

My current scrub of choice is this beautiful smelling one from Hempz. It is harsh enough to give you a good ol’ scrubbing but not too harsh that it leaves your skin sore. In the past I have tried scrubs that just end up making you red and sore and you wish you hadn’t even bothered as your skin was better before but this one is just right. 

You feel so soft after using it it really does get rid of all the dead skin. I like the smell of this, it isn’t too overpowering and it leaves you smelling really good πŸ™‚

I have been struggling with my acne recently, so haven’t really been trying any different skincare products as I worried it may make it worse but I have started using a few bits from DHC so wanted to share my views with you.

DHC

The face wash powder I have been using has actually helped clear up my skin a bit. It is kind of strange to use at first as you mix the powder with water to create a foam. It helps to cleanse and exfoliate to get rid of any dirt and old skin cells. It is not drying to the skin which is great.

The eye bright I have been using day and night and it makes me look a lot more awake. Even though I get a good amount of seep, I always end up looking tired and have dark circles, so this has really helped, especially as I am trying to have more make up free days whilst I try to clear my acne.

For the days I do wear make up, I have been using velvet skin coat as primer. When you have acne, either current or scarring, it is often hard to cover it up with concealer or foundation and it can often end up looking worse. by using a primer it creates that barrier for easier, smoother application of any facial make up.

The lip cream is something I put on just before bed and I have noticed my lips look a lot better by morning and lipstick goes on a lot better if your lips are hydrated and not dry.

Really impressed with DHC and may need to try some other of their products!

For the last month or so I have been using this interesting contraption from NuSkin. It is meant to help you get your skin ready for summer and reduce the signs of ageing/cellulite and give you smooth looking skin that looks firmer and more toned. 

Even though it is called the Ageloc, it isn’t just for older people! I am 28 and I have skin concerns on my thighs, from where I have put on weight, I am worried about wrinkles on my face forming and all sorts. For me, it is more tackling the ageing process before it becomes too much of a problem.

NuSkin Ageloc

The Ageloc galvanic body spa machine is designed to be used with the Ageloc body shaping gel and in conjunction with this you can use the Ageloc dermatic effects daily moisturiser.

NuSkin Ageloc

 Ageloc body shaping gel helps stimulate cellular communication to help purify and refresh skin which in turn helps to reduce any signs of ageing and leaves your skin looking smooth and refreshed. It also helps your skin to be more firm.

Ageloc dermatic effects is a daily moisturiser (you don’t use this with the machine!). It increases cellular turnover to help renew your skin quicker and helps to smooth the appearance of cellulite.

I have been using all three products together to see how much of a difference it made. I am not going to show pictures ad the area I was targeting was my thighs and and my bum, and no one wants to see that on the internet! It is also very hard in pictures to often show any skin problems but to the naked eye you can really see a difference.

 I have also been using this on a scar at the top of my leg/bikini area where I had a mole removed when I was younger and it has really helped with the scarring. 

I am still self conscious about my cellulite/stretch marks caused by recent weight gain, which is another reason for not sharing any pictures, but in time and using this regularly I feel it will help with my confidence .

This system is quite pricey at Β£420.98 for the three products but can you really put a price on confidence and feeling happy with your skin?! 

It is so easy to use and comes with instructions. It basically uses pulsating technology and the conductive surface of the galvanic spa to ensure the body shaping gel works to the best of its ability. The current assists with delivering the key ingredients deeper into your skin. You only have to use it three times a week which I think is great πŸ™‚

You can read the instruction manual here if you wanted to find out about more about how it works/how to use it.
