the body shop facial brush

Many of you would know the importance of facial brushes in skincare, they are available in two types- Automatic and Manual. While automatic ones are priced steep, manual ones make the best pick for those who are tight on budget or don’t want to spend a hefty sum on such a small thing. I picked this facial brush on an impulse while I was exploring the skincare section at The Body Shop store; I was not even familiar with the benefits of facial brushes when I bought this. And guess what? I totally forgot I own this until I spotted it in one of my organizers (which wasn’t organized at all 😛 ). I have tried no other facial brush before, so I won’t be able to compare it and pen down how high or low it stands when contrasted with others. In today’s post, I will be talking about my overall experience using The Body Shop Facial Brush; keep reading to know how it fared 🙂 –Price- INR 265/-

About- This round brush can be used with cleansers, facial washes and exfoliators.
• Enhances cleansing
• Shaped to follow facial contours

Directions- Apply cleansing product. Gently massage into skin with the Facial Brush using small, circular movements. Rinse off with warm water. For extra exfoliation, use with a facial polisher. My Take on The Body Shop Facial Brush With Lid- The Body Shop Facial Brush with Lid is made up of acrylic and came inside a plastic cover as far as I can remember 😛 (it’s been long since I purchased this). It had a sticker on the brush handle which had product and pricing information.  It’s a very tiny product and fits into even the smallest of space 😛 , this brush comes with a well-fitted lid which prevents bacteria build-up and makes it travel-friendly too.The product brief reads out that it can be used with face washes, cleansers, and exfoliators. I prefer to apply exfoliators/scrubs with my fingers, so I use this facial brush with face washes and cleansers only. I am currently using it 2 times a week. I wet my face, apply face wash and create rich lather first; then I moisten this facial brush and start massaging gently in small circular movements around the face and neck. I do the massage for like 3-4 minutes with gentle pressure and wash off with normal water; it effectively pulls out the impurities from the skin which face washes can’t do alone. It does the work of a scrub without having to use one. The bristles are little harsh so I would suggest you go light-handed while using this, because if you’ll massage with pressure you are sure to end up with redness and scratches on your skin(which I am sure you’re not buying it for).And yes! I use it especially on days I am wearing heavy base makeup and want to clean every trace of it from my skin; I use this brush right after using a makeup remover to pull out the remnants of make-up that still lie on the skin surface. It’s my go-to beauty tool for deep clean, it effectively unclogs pores and brushes away the dead skin cells from the skin.

Do you use a facial brush too? Did you know The Body Shop has this cute-little-effective thing in their product catalogue?
