Why I needed a product like this?
I purchased the facial cleansing brush at CVS and have been using it for about one month now. I needed to switch up my routine because exfoliating with a facial scrub was not doing what I needed. So I tried a silicone brush and it still did not satisfy my needs or meet my expectations. So I saw this brush set at CVS and made the purchase and I’ve been very happy so far. I have noticed a difference in my skin tone overall and my pores around my nose, chin and lips have become practically non-existent.
The Uspicy facial brush comes with four different brushes, which make it accessible to everyone. Whether you have sensitive, oily or dry skin. The four different brushes consist of a Standard, a one firm Cuticle Brush, one Latex Sponge pad, and one Massage Roller. I have dry skin so I didn’t know right away which would be the best for me. So I tried all of the attachments out of curiosity but after my round of experiments I started to only use the Standard Brush with the exfoliating cleanser.
To me, if feels like the sponge pad would be beneficial to those who have more sensitive skin because the bristles on the brush were a bit softer. I became a huge fan of the Massage Roller, it definitely improved skin tone and blood circulation.
This brush set was a great way to get the ball rolling on finding a fix for my blackheads and also a great in between facial routine to maintain the improvements. I’d say this is a multipurpose Facial Cleaning Brush made for smooth, clear, clean and soft skin.
Uses and effects
It’s great for both oily and dry skin, as it comes with a two-speed control; one button is to turn on and the other is to change the speed. Once you remove your make up with a make-up remover, get your face wet and find a good cleanser to use, get your face wet and lather it up with the cleaners and use the brush. You don’t need to put much effort once it gets going as the bristles circulate and cleanse your skin.
I kept it on each section of my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead for about 20 seconds in each spot. The instructions state to use it for 20 seconds on the forehead, 20 seconds on the nose bridge, 10 seconds on each cheek, and 20 seconds on the chin. I kind of disregarded the 10 second rule and my cheeks were just fine.
Once I was done I splashed my face a couple of times to wipe off any of the cleanser remaining and then used the massage roller after to get blood circulation going. After you are done place the brush in the stand. It literally stands upwards to prevent moisture build-up and the hard plastic holder that has a nice large vent hole great for drying the brush. It’s totally portable and easy to travel with.
Formulation / Main Ingredients / Packaging
Comes with Four Brushes that all have great uses and benefits. Every brush set has its standard brush, kind of like the go-to. That’s what the Soft Facial Brush is. It cleanses pores, minimizes residual bacteria, acne, acne scarring and, prevents blackheads, you can use daily massage roller …my favorite is used to firm the skin and get better skin elastic. Its 360-degree range promote blood circulation, so it leaves you with a glow after. It comes with the latex sponge that is great to massage liquids and allow products to absorb in afterwards.
The lotion ball pad is used to apply lotion and gently massage the face firm the skin as benefits the skin by helping skin firmness. I liked using this as an all over massager/lotion applicator on arms, legs and back. It does get oily so you have to be careful and possibly might have to clean up after. When I’m done, I rinse it well under luke warm water and pat dry.
The brush system comes with a cuticle brush that is great for exfoliating and removing dead skin cells, I wouldn’t over use this one, I would definitely stick to the suggested use of twice a week. The cuticle brush is best used after the shower (for me) when my cuticles are soft and ready for pushing back, it’s like a little mini manicure system at home.
What I Like about USpicy Facial Cleansing Brush Set
The facial brush great for travel, it is cordless and its lightweight and portability make it convenient. I also liked that it is completely waterproof, so it’s perfect o use in the shower or bath. Batteries are also included so you can start using right away without having to dig around for batteries.
Another thing I really liked about the brush is that you get dual use out of it. My boyfriend uses the attachments I don’t use and he has become fan as well.
What I Don’t Like about USpicy Facial Cleansing Brush Set
The downside is that the battery compartment is a challenge to yank open when you need it, but it just takes some patience and a screwdriver. The other downside is that the battery lasts about 3-5 days, so you might need to have a stack of batteries handy. I hope that they can improve and come out with a rechargeable version.
My Final Verdict
I would highly recommend the USpicy Facial Cleansing Brush to a family or friend, which I have and I have also purchased this as a Christmas present for my mom. I would also recommend that you choose the right facial wash/cleanser to compliment the brush set. I used Olay or Neutrogena with a hydrator afterwards whether you decide to use it at night or day or perhaps both, you definitely need a good cleanser and hydrator.
My skin always feels soft and refreshed after using the standard brush in the mornings. It got my face ready for make-up application and nice natural glow.
