I have been improving my skincare routine over the last couple of months; religiously trying to clear my skin from breakouts and pimples. Cleansing, moisturising and just all round taking care of my skin because it is vital to show some love to your skin which keeps you feeling fresh while helping to reduce the chance of wrinkles appearing earlier than you want them too! So when an email arrived in my inbox about reviewing some new products that have been realised from a brand called SENSSE; I just had to jump at the chance to review these electronic beauty products.
I was actually intrigued to find out more about the Hot and Cool Facial Bar because it sounds like something you would find in a spa, used my the professionals so of course I just had to test it out myself!
About the Hot and Cool Facial Bar?
When the package arrived in the mail, the facial bar was in a lovely white box with the ‘SENSSE’ writing in gold which made the item look that much more professional. There was a plastic cover over the facial bar I guess for safety/ hygiene; so it was a little difficult to avoid plastic with this item, but I was fine with that I just took it to the recycling centre to be recycled. Inside the box you get the device of course, a charger and a instruction manual.
So onto what the facial bar actually is, because I’m sure you are just dying to know! Well it is a device that energises and brightens your skin by using the different heat settings available, you can use it as an instant refresh or keep using it every 2-3 days for a lasting glow.
The hot mode temperature is set at 42°C which is great for increasing your blood circulation, reactivating cell growth and to help soften your facial muscles, the cold mode temperature is set at 6°C and is used to soothe your muscles which helps to reduce redness and swelling of the face aiding the chance of having bright and beautiful skin with only a few uses. While the hot and cold facial bar has these two modes it also has a vibrating setting which can be used on both hot and cold modes, these vibrations on your skin increases absorption of your moisturiser, closing up of your pores and preventing any grime build up. How amazing does it sounds?!
Ok so it’s all well and good knowing what the device does for your skin, but you need to know how to use it, or else it is pretty pointless. Firstly I would wash my face after a long day, to remove any dirt build up. Then I would activate the hot mode by pressing the power button and holding for a few seconds, I then use the hot mode over my whole face to open up my pores and add my favourite night moisturiser (Nilotic Lemon crème; if you want to try your own use the code NILOFRUIT84 for 20% off any crème at www.nilotic.us ) Now that the moisturiser is added I then press the power button again to active the hot mode with vibrations this setting like I mentioned above helps to increase absorption, massaging my whole face with the device and finally I end my routine by using the cool mode again simply pressing the power button once more and the device instantly goes from 42°C to 6°C which is incredible, this mode is to soothe the skin from the heat it also closes the pores which aids to reduce the visibly of them. To then turn the device off you simply hold the power button in for about 4-5seconds and it shuts off or it will automatically switch off after 2 minutes.
My Final Thoughts
Like I mentioned I was so intrigued by this product, that I had to get my hands on it and I can say it didn’t disappoint. Since using this device for about just over 5 weeks it has done a lot for my skin in terms of brightness and smoothness. It is advised that you use this device every 2-3 days as using it any more than that, it can become too much for your skin. I only use it on Tuesdays and Sundays as I feel it is enough to do it twice a week, my skin is quite sensitive and adding a lot of product and heat etc to it can actually make me break out in spots. I have reduced the amount of pimples I had on my forehead since using this device so it has been great for that & improving my tired looking skin.
I have loved using this item & would recommend it to anyone wanting to step up their skincare routine, to give your skin an instant refresh, energise your facial muscles and promote the smoothing of wrinkles while simulating the elasticity of your skin use this awesome device you can get yours here: Hot and Cool Facial Bar
