We’ve all had to live through those mornings where taking a look into the mirror is extremely regretted the second that decision is made. Who’s this new friend looking back at me? Now I have to think of a fitting name that describes the angry looking spot centred right in the middle of my forehead, which is screaming for attention. Maybe, Terry? or Ursula.. Eh, I’ll just call it Samantha and hope it feels privileged enough to vanish quickly. However, despite using a whole pot of Sudocrem, calling the new friend a sweet name and buying the whole stock of Collections’ lasting perfection concealer. It continues to be a daily reminder of life’s imperfections.If you know me, then you know one of my biggest insecurities is my skin. And how it copes with the harsh impacts of stress, applying makeup nearly every day and those odd indulgences in a McDonalds (nothing to be ashamed of, right?!). I’ve tried cleansers, toners, face washes, face masks and just everything in the existence of what we hope to be ‘spot defeaters’. 99.9% of those named do not and have not ever worked for me. Yes, maybe for a few days they make my face feel like a baby’s bottom. But, undoubtedly that effect doesn’t last long and returns to looking rough and unhealthy. This was however before I tried something extraordinary which cleared my skin up dramatically. Recently, I celebrated my birthday. Seventeen years I’ve been alive and I honestly don’t know how people have coped with me for that long, they most definitely deserve an award! For one of my birthday presents I received a 2-in-1 facial brush from one of my sisters. The brand Ti Style was launched in California, 2004 with the sole purpose to bring style, innovation and quality to top salons and homes all over the world. The brand was launched for the professionals only but has quickly become a brand that is popular with anybody that insists on quality. They put a huge emphasis on reliability and quality control which is shown throughout the range of products they sale. The moment I locked eyes on this brush, it felt like the angels had come down from above and granted me a moment of pure joy. This waterproof hand-held facial cleansing brush combines soft silicone touchpoints on one side and gentle cleansing bristles on the other to ensure thorough cleansing along with deep, gentle exfoliating. So how do I use this beautiful creation you may ask? Well, let me tell you! (It’s not that exciting, trust me) Firstly, I like to have a shower every morning. Yes I know, it’s not good for your hair. But when you’re someone like me who is a very unattractive sleeper then you know this is essential to look the slightest bit presentable for the public eye. Every other day I like to pull out the facial brush and give my face a GOOD clean. I begin by dampening my skin, in other words lean back and hope the water covers everything without drowning. I then pour a little bit of cleanser on the touch-points side, which is applied to my T-zone, cheeks, chin and nose in circular motions for roughly twenty seconds. The areas I tend to focus on more is my nose and the T-zone as this is where I feel attracts more spots, redness and dry patches. After that I then turn to the side which holds the cleansing bristles, I use this to go over every nook and cranny to ensure nothing is left uncleaned. This is when I usually get distracted by the softness and end up scrubbing for more than the time recommened! Lean back again, wash it all off and I’m done!
I’ve been using this product for four days now, and I’ve noticed a huge improvement with my skins appearance already! Not only is it smooth, but some of my most spot prone areas are slowly reducing the number of spots they produce. Which is such a relief, especially due to the fact that I don’t wear makeup as much as I used to do anymore and so don’t tend to use anything to correct the imperfections. I would undoubtedly recommend this to anyone who Is struggling to find a cleansing brush that is affordable and great in size! For just £8-£20 it can be yours. And I guarantee you will not regret the purchase.
See you in my next post lovelies! xo
