As you guys already know, I am somewhat of a skincare junkie. In the long and difficult quest for a perfect complexion, I absolutely love finding an exciting new product or tool to test out on my face. Which is why I was super excited when skincare brand TOUCHBeauty contacted me about reviewing one of their latest devices!
When it comes to beauty devices, I’ve done my fair share of Googling and reading about them, however I must admit, the product that I am reviewing for you today was something I had never heard of before! TOUCHBeauty’s Ultrasonic Skin Exfoliating Device is part of one of the latest trends to sweep the at-home skincare market. Rather than resembling a typical facial cleanser with a wide surface area, instead this device is more like a spatula, with a thin metal head with a curved edge that glides along the skin.
Naturally, I was intrigued when I saw the image of this product. How does it work? Does it really do anything? What are the benefits? I was extremely excited to get stuck in and find out!
First things first, the packaging and all round look of this product is so stylish and professional. It arrived in a box that came with the device, the charger, a travel bag, a cleansing cloth (for the device) and detailed instructions. So far, so good.
Upon opening the box, I saw the super sleek scrubber itself. The thin, curved, design fits perfectly in your hand, and the mirrored finish makes for a stylish, almost futuristic look. Alongside this, it also comes with a matching wireless charger in the same slick, mirrored design. This means that the device actually looks really nice on your bathroom shelf, and the charger doesn’t constantly need to be plugged in, so there are no ugly wires clogging up space!
All it takes is a simple double tap to awaken the device (how fancy), and the touch screen allows you to adjust the intensity of the ultrasonic vibrations to a strength that suits you and your skin! As far as controls go then, it’s extremely simple to use and to adjust to your own preferences, and the device has 5 intensity levels to suit different skin types and cleansing needs!
It is recommended only apply the scrubber on to wet skin so as to keep it protected and help it glide over the skin more easily! There are two different ways you can use the device. One side can be used to exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, bacteria and blackheads (it is recommended to only do this 1-2 times a week), whilst the other side can be used as a daily massage function to help the absorption of creams and other skincare products.
So, does it work?
When I first tried this product over on my YouTube channel, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Was I going to extract loads of gunk out of my skin? Was it going to do anything at all? I used the device on a wet face, at a 30 degree angle, and moving in upwards motions as the instructions suggest. I started on my cheeks, before making my way to my nose and my forehead. Admittedly, I think I was hoping for that super satisfying moment of the spatula visibly removing loads of blackheads, but after consistent use, I now realise that this isn’t the end goal of this device.
Rather than pushing super hard on your skin to try and force out every little thing in your pores, instead you need to let the device do the work for you! The scrubber uses ultrasonic vibrations which are more than enough to exfoliate your skin without applying excess pressure. With consistent use this way, the scrubber promotes an overall boosted complexion, with fewer blocked pores or blackheads, without having to squeeze the living daylights out of your face!
As for the massage function, this is a relaxing little boost for your skin that can be done every day after cleansing. I like to do this as I feel like it wakes my skin up in the morning and leaves it feeling soft!
Now that I have stopped trying to attack my face, I am really starting to get to grips with the way this device is meant to work…and I’m really liking it! Having used a vibrating cleanser for the last year or so, I’m no stranger to the benefits it has for your skin, however I think this is a completely different feeling, as the vibrations are so much more concentrated, so it feels as if they are doing more than the typical cleanser does! I’m looking forward to seeing how it benefits my skin over time, as I’ve heard the long term results can be great. I use this device in conjunction with my other skincare products and so far, it hasn’t left my skin feeling unusually sensitive.
As far as devices go, this is definitely on the pricier end of the scale, coming in $299.99, however, I do feel that the design and quality of the product live up to expectations. If that price is still making you wince, then you can also use my code ‘Alice Macfarlane‘ at the checkout for 15% off!
I want to thank TOUCHBeauty for kindly gifting me this device! As a skincare fanatic, I love being able to try out new trends, and I think this one could do wonders for my skin.
