When I clean my face it takes me about ten seconds – splash it with water, rub a bit of token product in for a few seconds, then wash it off, right? Nope, apparently I’m doing it wrong. A lot of us are. It takes time to clean your face properly, you need to work the product in and give it a chance to do it’s thing. I’ve made two changes to my skincare routine that make it take a bit longer, but it makes my skin feel so much nicer!
The first thing I’m doing differently is double cleansing my skin. I only do this in the evening, it’s a great way to remove my makeup (or just the general pollutants of the day, if I’m not wearing makeup) before washing my face. If you’ve never heard of double cleansing before, I wrote this post about it recently – go have a read to find out more (it might make some of the comments in this video make more sense!).
The second thing I’m doing differently (and I’ve been doing this for a while now because I wanted to make sure I thoroughly tested it before writing this post) is using the Remington Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush to wash my face. I saw a lot of people talking about these a while back and I decided to buy one so I could try it out and see if they really do clean my skin better than when I wash my face with my hands.
MY VERDICT: I like the Remington Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush because it makes me wash my face more thoroughly. I always thought I was doing a pretty good job when I was washing my face before, but even though I might have been putting cleanser all over my face I wasn’t really working it in or giving it a chance to properly clean my skin. I love how easy the brush is to use, charge and travel with, and it’s gentle on my sensitive skin (using the regular brush head).
SHOP IT: I purchased my brush on sale, but they usually retail for around $100. Currently available from Noel Leeming for $97 (at full price), otherwise you can find your local NZ stockist by calling 0800 736 776.
