Disillusioned with your daily pre-bedtime double cleanse? There’s got to be a faster way to remove the day’s makeup, oil and general grime from your face so that you can climb under the covers all the sooner – right?

Well thankfully, the answer is yes, and if you’re new to facial cleansing devices, then now’s the time to get familiar. Gone are the days when a quick swipe with a facial wipe will suffice, and no longer does it have to, as the Magnitone London Barefaced! Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush will outperform even your finest high-end cleanser. Intrigued? Then read on.

The Lowdown

The Magnitone cleansing system has been on the market for several years now, and has gained itself a cult following within the beauty world in a relatively short time. This latest offering uses a sonic vibration system, combining electromagnetic vibrations and sonic oscillations; in other words, it spins and vibrates. Or, to go slightly more technical with the detail, it sends rapid vibrations to the skin at a rate of 15,000 per minute.

The stunning new Precious Collection is available in a range of limited edition, stand-out colours, including Moonstone Grey, Gold, Amethyst Purple, Opal White and Pearl Pink.

Each brush comes with two different settings; Cleanse or PulseLift, with each lasting for 20 seconds per area before you’re prompted to move onto the next. Despite its vigorous motion, the Magnitone Barefaced feels surprisingly gentle on the skin, and results are apparent after just one use. Shifting dirt and sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal the brighter surface underneath, skin is instantly more radiant than before, and is left feeling smooth, refreshed and invigorated. The PulseLift option also offers a toning element, and is definitely worth using for an extra energising shot.

The best thing about the Magnitone Barefaced! is that it can be used with your favourite cleanser – just be aware that you’ll need to wash it thoroughly after each use to avoid harbouring any bacteria within the bristles, making sure to rinse away any residue from your products.

Once skin is freshly buffed, you can apply your usual toner, serum and moisturiser, and in my experience, it’ll drink it up. Without any dead skin cells confusing matters, product sinks rapidly into the skin, improving moisture levels and keeping hydration levels up for healthier skin all round.

The Verdict
There are few beauty gadgets that offer such instant results, and this is one that will transform your skin as well as your cleansing routine. You can’t argue with visible evidence – but be sure to keep it clean and dry between uses to avoid skin irritation. For best results, replace your brush head every 3 months.

The Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush is available online at Magnitone, priced at £70.
