Magnitone Lucid

For the past couple of months I've really been suffering with my skin. None of my makeup was sitting right and it soon dawned on me that the problem was my skincare routine. It all comes down to skincare. 
Enter Magnitone.

 Given that my skin is sensitive and super easily irritated, I'd never taken the plunge on a cleansing brush purely because £69.99 isn't a price I could justify if I was only going to get a couple of uses out of it. When I heard Magnitone were taking part in the Bloggers Hub Twitter party I was excited. I didn't know what a 'Twitter party' entailed but I set an alarm so I was sure to be there on time and it turned out to be a chat between bloggers and brands. Bonus...brands were also giving away certain numbers of their products.
Magnitone very kindly sent me one of their Lucid exfoliating brushes to try out and I could not be more grateful. 

There are two modes to this brush - deep clean and sensitive. I was worried about the bristles being too harsh against my skin but that isn't the case at all. For the first couple of days I used the sensitive mode but I soon moved onto the deep clean setting and I haven't had any problems.

With claims of 'softer, brighter, smoother skin' in just 7 days I was skeptical. How much of a difference could just a week make. As it turns out....a lot!

Within two days of using this I noticed an improvement in my skin. I was so impressed that I was keen to post a review there and then. Obviously that isn't realistic when it comes to forming thoughts on skincare items so I held off until the end of the 7 days and I love it more everyday. I wouldn't say I'm getting fewer spots but they are definitely a lot less red and they aren't typically painful any more. My skintone is a lot more even since starting using this. I generally have quite a lot of redness but my skin has calmed down a lot and most of that damage has faded.

My sister commented after only a couple of days that my makeup looked a lot nicer than it usually does and the reason was that my skin was a lot calmer underneath. By the time I saw her, late afternoon, my makeup looked just as good as it had when I applied it 8 hours earlier. You know you're onto a good thing when other people are noticing a difference and commenting.

The Lucid is smaller than my hand and comes with a travel charger, perfectly compact for those of you who are lucky enough to travel a bit. 
It is also fully waterproof for those of you who like to do your skincare stuff in the shower. 
I honestly can't see an excuse not to give this a go.

I can't see myself ever going back to a routine that doesn't involve this handy device. If you fancy trying one out for yourself, the lovely lot at Magnitone are offering 20% off the Lucid cleansing and exfoliating brush with the code 'Nikki20' which is available here.

Have you tried a cleansing/exfoliating brush before? Are you a fan?

Whilst the Magitone Lucid was very kindly sent to me, my thoughts are 100% my own.
