Magnitone Lucid Cleansing Brush

I’d been thinking about investing in a facial cleansing brush for a while, so when Magnitone asked if I’d like to review their Lucid Daily Cleansing & Exfoliation Brush* I jumped at the chance! It’s available in 4 bright colours and I chose Sunshine Yellow.
The aim of the Magnitone Lucid brush is to help deep cleanse your skin in just 1 minute a day, by using Active Electromagnetic Technology™ whereby tiny pulsations send vibrations into the skin helping to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells.
The Magnitone Lucid comes conveniently packaged in a box with everything you need to get started. There’s a handy travel charger (plus a two-pin adapter if you need it) and an instruction leaflet.
The charger cleverly attaches to the brush via a magnet so there’s no hole or plug where water can get in.
Magnitone claim the Lucid cleansing brush can give you softer, clearer and brighter skin in just 7 days… so how did I get on? I’ve been using the brush for exactly a week now, making it part of my cleansing process at night before I go to bed. I’ve been using it with Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish which is the cleanser that I’ve been using since Christmas. I simply smear the cleanser all over my face using my hands, then switch on the Magnitone Lucid brush and gently move the bristles all over my face for a minute until the whole surface of my face has been covered.
The brush only powers itself for a minute before switching off, and it beeps every 20 seconds so you know where you are in the process. I’ve been concentrating on my forehead and nose for 20 seconds, each cheek for 10 seconds and then finally my chin and upper neck for 20 seconds. The time seems to go really quickly! Once the brush has switched itself off you just rinse off your cleanser as normal.
I had expected that the brush would be really spinny and a bit scratchy, but it sort of oscillates and vibrates rather than spins and feels quite gentle on the skin. It does make me want to sneeze when I use it on my nose though!
The brush has 2 cleansing modes – Deep Clean and Sensitive – to be honest I can’t really feel much difference between the 2 modes but I suspect the Sensitive mode must be slightly gentler. Plus the Magnitone Lucid is fully waterproof so you can use it in the bath or shower if you want.
So what results have I seen after a week? Well my skin does feel smoother and brighter, and I’ve definitely got less blocked pores. I’m actually really surprised and pleased with the results so far, 1 minute a day doesn’t seem very long but it certainly seems to be working.
There are a couple of minor downsides though…. the first is the instruction booklet. It’s quite a thick booklet, with directions in lots of different languages, and you have to flick through quite a lot to find the relevant information you’re looking for in English. It would be easier if all of the English instructions were gathered together, rather than interspersed throughout the booklet.
The other negative point is the cleanliness of the brush. Magnitone recommend you clean the brush head after each use, this will remove cleanser and grime, however it’s quite difficult to get the brush looking clean particularly if you’ve been wearing make-up when you use the brush. You can buy replacement brush heads, Magnitone say it’s best to change your brush head every 8 weeks but I suspect my brush will be pretty yukky by then and I don’t want to be reapplying last night’s grime to my skin….
Overall I really like the Magnitone Lucid, and provided you keep the brush clean I’d definitely recommend it. I’m really pleased I’ve tried it, it’s going to become part of my everyday cleansing routine now.
Magnitone Lucid is priced at £69.99 from Magnitone. Replacement brush heads are available at £15.99 for 2.
