My skincare regime is completely variable. When I’m busy and stressed, I eat badly and forget to look after my skin. When I have time, I can spend hours (and a lot of money) on my face – here’s my routine on a good day.
One of my main issues is with my pores, no matter what I try I can never get them to clear out and minimise. Living in the city means pollution and dirt build up on my face and clogs the pores (that’s why I always get out into the country when I can). If I don’t look after my skin, the spots come quite quickly.
I was sent three items from the SENSSE Beauty range to try out: the SENSSE Deep Pore Suction Cleaner and Blackhead Remover, SENSSE Go! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator and the SENSSE Facial Toner Face Massager & Derma Roller.
They all come in lovely rose gold and white. They also have protective covers for their heads and the roller came with its own little pouch to store it in. (Anybody else think they look slightly dodgy?!)
I decided to give my face a much-needed makeover and pamper.
SENSSE Deep Pore Suction Cleaner and Blackhead Remover
Not the catchiest of names but this machine aims to instantly remove pore-clogging dead skin cells, excess oil, and other impurities from your face and nose. The suction draws out blackheads and whiteheads to clear your skin.
Before using it, you need to charge it for SIX HOURS in a handy USB dock. When ready, fill it up with water which creates a mist to help with the suction. It’s also water resistant so you can use it in the shower or bath, where the hot water also opens pores.
Then, you’re off! It has three speeds and feels quite strange as it sucks on your pores. You also have three different suckers – big, small and blackhead – depending on which areas you want to target.
I think it definitely brought some dirt up to the surface but I’m not entirely convinced it eliminated my blackheads.
SENSSE Go! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator
Again, this needs to charge via USB to work. It comes with two brush heads, one for daily cleansing and another for weekly exfoliating.
You wet your face and the brush, adding some cleanser or exfoliator and the brush spins round. The cleanser gently exfoliates with over 600 oscillations per minute to deeply cleanse your skin and remove blackheads and other impurities.
It buffs away all dirt and dry skin making your face feel super soft! This also has two speeds depending on how sensitive your skin is.
I loved this product, it’s so easy to incorporate into your daily routine with a cleanser and my skin felt so smooth afterwards.
SENSSE Facial Toner Face Massager & Derma Roller
I thought this product was going to be identical to my jade roller (see this post) but it feels totally different, and in my opinion more effective.
The tool massages and relaxes your muscles, enhancing the elasticity of skin and stimulating blood circulation. Rolling it in upward motions from the chin, it can feel uncomfortable and painful but afterwards, you are left with a rejuvenated (and slightly pink) face.
VERDICT: Very simple to use but I’m not totally convinced of its benefits.
All of the SENSSE products were of very high quality, easy to use and pretty to look at. I would definitely consider buying from the range again as, after using the products my skin felt silky smooth. Of course, don’t forget to moisturise after!
Let’s hope I can continue to take regular care of my skin, rather than letting my pores get out of hand!
