Skincare | Magnitone Pulsar


The Clarisonic is a widely talked about and expensive electrical skincare tool. Ever since I read a couple of reviews in the infamous 'Mia', I've always wondered what difference using such a tool would make. Luckily, I've been trying out a similar tool for several weeks now; the Magnitone Pulsar*. It claims to do multiple things such as deep cleanse your skin, remove dirt & impurities, tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of pores & wrinkles. A very bold claim indeed.

The technique is simple, you first pick one of the four modes which are massage, exfoliate, sensitive and deep clean - Another multi-use product! You then pop your favourite cleanser on to the brush head, switch the tool on and gently circle your face spending 20 seconds on your forehead and t-zone, 10 seconds on each cheek and 10 seconds on your chin. After you simply wash any excess product off your face and voila, you're done. 

With it being a lot rougher on your skin than your hands are, I did at first break out a little bit after the first couple of uses, but that seemed to disappear after a week or so. I also got quite a bit of redness too as my skin wasn't used to the  tool. However, since beginning to use the Magnitone Pulsar, my skin is feeling a lot smoother and softer but I've seen no difference in the visibility of my pores just yet. When it comes down to it, I don't think this is a complete necessity in a skincare routine, but boy, it is a treat and a luxury to have!

So, what are your thoughts? Would you be willing to pay a hefty price tag for a tool like this? You can pick it up on lookfantastic.com, a lot cheaper than a Clarisonic! Make sure you let me know your opinions on a product like this in the comment below, thanks for reading!

  1. I like that this is cheaper than the Clarisonic but I still don't know if I am up for spending that much money. Great review though!

    1. I think if you use it with the right products it can make such a difference, it means I don't have to double cleanse sometimes too. xxx

  11. I would love to try this! I have sensitive skin so I'd be a little worried about going red but I'd still give it a whirl and hope my skin would get used to it.
