I was sent the Sensse Anti-Ageing Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator to review.
I’ve always had nice skin but the truth is, I haven’t looked after it very well. I’m afraid to admit that I will remove make-up with a baby wipe.
I don’t wear make up frequently which probably helps my skin, I like my face to feel natural. I often just wash with a little soapy water and then apply a moisturiser. It doesn’t matter which type of moisturiser so long as it absorbs quickly, feels good and has a SPF of at least 20.
The thing that attracted me to the Sensse Cleansing Brush was the promise;
AGE DEFYING RESULTS- See amazing, age defying results with consistent daily use.
Yes, I’m aware that I’m getting older and I am consistently looking for ‘age defying’ products.
I’ve been trying the brush for a couple of weeks now so here is my review.
I do love to receive something well packaged and the Sensse Cleansing brush comes in a lovely white box with a simple rose gold logo. The brush itself looks elegant, I love the touch of rose gold. In the box you get the brush with a clear plastic lid and the charger which is USB. You do not get a USB adaptor but it works with most phone chargers.
Before using the brush you need to charge it first and it has three lights at the front which tell you when it’s fully charged. Then you will get 60 uses of the brush as each use is timed by 60 seconds.
When charged you use the brush with your chosen cleanser and you are given 20 second timing beeps for you to do different sections of your face. The timing beeper is a great addition although you are given 20 seconds to do both cheeks so you have to make sure they get 10 seconds each.
The brush itself is incredibly soft and lovely to use. I has three speeds and each speed is activated by the one switch, you hold it down for it come on and then click through to second and third speeds. It stops automatically after 60 seconds but you have to hold down the switch to turn it off. It will turn itself off after two minutes inactivity to save the battery.
Using the Cleanser
I find using the cleanser really simple and I love that it’s not time consuming, just 60 seconds and you’re done. You can even use it in the shower. I just use a simple cleanser and and brush it in finishing off with a quick swill with cold water.
The brush is really soft and it feels lovely on your skin. It oscillates quickly giving you a deep and cleansing experience. The slowest speed is good for sensitive skin and the faster speeds are good for exfoliation and anti ageing treatment.
The brush slots off easily for cleaning under the tap after each use. You then pop it back on and leave it for next use.
The brush is supposed to turn back your beauty clock by stimulating collagen and elastin production to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It promises age defying results with consistent daily use. It comes with a 60 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.
Having used the brush for just over two weeks I’m thinking that perhaps it’s too early for miraculous results and nobody has told me I look any younger yet. However, I’m loving using the brush, not only is it really simple to use but it makes my skin feel so fresh and clean in such a short amount of time. After use I’m left a little red in the face but only for a few moments, this tells me that the brush is stimulating my blood vessels and encouraging my skin to shine with cleanliness. Before using the brush my skin would feel desperate for moisturiser after cleansing, but now it doesn’t. Although I still apply it. My skin feels fresher and cleaner like I’ve spent ages on a cleansing routine, when in fact I’ve just used this brush for 60 seconds. To be honest, I’d like to use it for more than 60 seconds as it feels so good. I tend to turn it on again just to do my throat area.
I do not have a lot of wrinkles despite my age, but I will continue to use this brush in the hope that my skin will remain wrinkle free in the future. My skin is definitely feeling firmer and looking brighter.
Would I Recommend the Sensse Facial Cleansing Brush to Family and Friends?
Yes, I would. It’s a great cleansing tool and although I’ve not had many facials in a professional salon (only two and I didn’t really enjoy them,) I’d say this would be a great alternative to expensive treatments. It’s a little pricey at £59.99 but still cheaper than facial treatments and much quicker and easier. In fact, I’d be happy to try the other Sensse products and already have my eye on the Sensse Facial Toner Face Massager and Derma Roller. I may not have many wrinkles but I do have saggy jowls. (Now, there is a confession!)
If I were to change anything about the cleansing brush it would be to have 20 seconds each cheek rather than having to share the 20 seconds between your cheeks. Then maybe another 20 seconds for the jaw area. So I’m asking for a total of 100 seconds rather than 60, but I think it’s worth it, it’s still less than two minutes.
