Hello! I received a very exciting email a month or two ago, asking if I would like to try the new Magnitone Lucid Cleansing Brush. As I loved using the Pulsar, I quickly said yes. I have had the Lucid for a while now so my apologies for only blogging about it now – what am I like eh?
The Magnitone Lucid Facial Brush gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin to remove residues, impurities and dead skin cells using Active Electromagnetic Technology. Featuring two cleansing modes, the soft brush produces over 10000 fast-pulsing rotation-oscillations per minute to deeply and effectively clean and smooth your skin.
Suitable for sensitive and allergic skin types, it helps to purify your pores to reduce the occurrence of blackheads and breakouts, whilst allowing your skin to better absorb nutrients and moisture from your moisturisers, self-tans and SPF creams.
Completely waterproof, the brush can be used in the bath or shower with your favourite cleanser, whilst the handy ‘clink’ charger allows you to use it worldwide. Providing two weeks of use from a single charge, the Magnitone Lucid Facial Brush will allow you to see softer, brighter and smoother skin in as little as seven days. (Source – Look Fantastic)
As soon as I took it out of the packaging I could tell straight away the differences from the Pulsar. It’s lighter, smaller and has two modes of cleansing – sensitive and deep clean. The holster charger has gone and has been replaced by a magnetic charger that you can see in the bottom picture. I have learned my lesson from last time and charged the Lucid as fully as I could before use.
In terms of the actual technological workings of the Lucid, I have noticed and cherished the inbuilt timer – hallelujah! When I used to use the Pulsar, I often lost track of time and I think this led to several occasions of me overworking my skin. The timer is set for one minute, but it also beeps in 20 second intervals so you know when to move on to the next part of your face. Because of the timer, you also save on battery life (no more sudden cutting out mid cleanse!).
I have also noticed that the brush feels gentler on my skin. I haven’t had dramatic results that I saw after a few days usage like I did with the Pulsar, but I have noticed a gradual change in my skin with a few weeks of using the Lucid. I wasn’t sure whether the Lucid would match up to the Pulsar but at this moment, I prefer the Lucid to the Pulsar. I feel like Magnitone have really put a lot of thought into the development of the Lucid and targeted it towards younger skins like myself.
I’ll be back with a more detailed post in due course (and even a Lucid v Pulsar showdown in the future!) but I have to say the Lucid gets a big thumbs up from me at the moment.
