Magnitone Lucid Daily Cleansing & Exfoliation Brush Review


I first heard about face cleansing brushes years ago when everyone went mad for the Clarisonic. However, because of its high price tag, it was something I never felt I needed or wanted to try. I have a pretty sensitive skin
due to my acne, and I always thought this kind of tool would only make it worse, so I didn't want to take the risk. But when I heard about Magnitone and its much more affordable price tag, I was pretty intrigued to give it a try.

Magnitone offers different types of face brushes and I was gifted the Lucid face brush to review. Magnitone brand themselves with a ''7 day promise’' - the promise that your skin will look softer, brighter and clearer in only 7 days of use. As always with any beauty product or tool that offers such big claims, I was skeptical about it. Can this brush really aid your cleansing routine?

Before I get into what this product actually does for my skin and how it works, let’s talk about the packaging. The first thing that I love about it is that it is pink. Yes, call me a typical girl but it looks so pretty in my bathroom! Another thing is that it’s exceptionally lightweight, fits into the hand nicely and comes with a wireless travel charger so you can take your Magnitone away with you and charge it with ease. The wireless charger is magnetic and simply attaches to the bottom of the Magnitone.


I also love that the Magnitone has simple features, there's just one button which is used to turn the device on and off and to change the settings. You simply press the button once for the Deep Clean mode or twice for the Sensitive mode. I personally prefer using a mix of those settings depending on which area of my face I'm working on. I find my forehead and chin can handle the deep clean but I have to use the sensitive setting on my cheeks as they're slightly more delicate.

So you're probably wondering how the Magnitone actually works and how it benefits my skin? Well the general idea behind it is to cleanse the skin way more efficiently than the hands alone. When using our hands, although we're removing makeup from our face, we're not cleaning deep into the pores and removing all the dirt from them which can then lead to blocked pores and blackheads or spots. Due to the 10,000 pulsed oscillations (vibrations) offered per minute by the Magnitone, it provides a deep cleanse ensuring every ounce of dirt is removed from the skin and the pores are clear of any dirt. It can be used with your regular cleanser too, so you don't have to buy any special cleansing solutions to use with it which is another big plus point. I also found out that I can be quite messy when it comes to washing my face, so being able to take the brush into my shower (since the Magnitone is waterproof) makes the whole process a lot more convenient.

The Magnitone comes with a built in timer of one minute so when you turn it on it will do five 20 second bursts and then stop for a second to enable you to move on to a different area of your face. I must admit, I don't always follow this or use it as advised, I just use it for longer on the areas I feel I need it (i.e - my nose or chin). It’s pretty self explanatory really and you know your skin better than anyone else so just do what works for you.

Now let's get on to the good stuff - the results. My skin type is acne/combination so I can get dry patches on my cheek but I also have an oily t-zone - not ideal! I was concerned the Magnitone would be too harsh for me and I'm not going to lie, when I first used it I was a bit scared the vibrating sensation would damage my skin. However I was clearly being silly as I was literally blown away but the results from the first use. After seven days of continued use my skin is looking smoother, clearer and brighter, just as Magnitone promised. I feel like it's one of those ‘'where have you been all my life'' products as it’s literally revolutionized my skincare routine. Thank you Magnitone
