Ion Boosted Skincare? Panasonic Skincare Tools (video)

This video is sponsored by Panasonic. I’ve been really curious about all the microcurrent devices for skincare that have been popping up on the market recently. So when Panasonic approached me to try theirs out and make a video on the science behind it, of course I jumped at the opportunity (those devices aren’t cheap!). I talk about two different …

Foreo Luna Play Plus Cleansing Tool Review

Foreo Luna Play Plus Cleansing Tool Review

I’ve been asked about Foreo’s sonic cleansing devices more times than I can count, so I’m glad to say I finally have the Foreo Luna Play Plus ($75 AUD) in my hot little hands!

I’ve been trying out the Foreo Luna Play Plus in my cleansing routine for the past few weeks. Unlike other vibration-based cleansing brushes, the Foreo tools use little silicone knobs. On the Luna Play Plus, the knobs come in two sizes: there are larger ones at the tip which are meant to be used on the T-zone, and smaller ones around the rest of the tool that are meant for the rest of the face. The Foreo Luna Play Plus comes in 7 colours, and I have the fuchsia model.

It’s much smaller than I expected, smaller than the palm of my hand, so it’s super purse-friendly and travel-friendly (the exact dimensions are 64 x 60 x 28 mm, and it weighs 60 g). But don’t let the small size fool you – it’s very efficient at cleaning!

I talk about five products I’ve actually managed to finish, so they’re the cream of the crop when it comes to favourites. I try out a stupid amount of products for reviewing (way more than what actually turns up on …

Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher Tool Review

Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher Tool Review

Total Refresher by Michael Todd Beauty is a new tool that attempts to replicate the spa experience at home. I was very lucky to have it in my hot little hands before its official launch next week!

Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher Tool Review

The nifty Total Refresher combines 3 things in the one lightweight handheld tool: dermabrasion, comedone extraction and misting.

Dermabrasion

Total Refresher comes with 4 heads, one of which is a diamond tipped dermabrasion head. To exfoliate your skin, you glide the tip over taut skin without pressure. It’s recommended that you use it on clean, dry skin after applying a hot towel for 3-5 minutes. The instructions say to use it for a maximum of 5 minutes a week if you have dry skin, or 5 minutes twice a week for normal or oily skin. The tool has 3 speeds so you can adjust the intensity.

Dermabrasion is my favourite function of the tool. The suction automatically presses the diamond-coated tip against your skin so you don’t need to worry too much about how hard (or not-hard) to push. I’ve heard that other people end up red for an hour or two afterwards, but my skin seems to be resilient enough that I had no redness (although I’ve had aestheticians surprised by how little redness I get with in-clinic peels as well – I think my skin is deceptively resilient!).
