Today’s post is a review on Primark’s PS Facial Cleanse & Massage Brush that costs a shocking £1, *spoilers, I love it*.
I’ve never actually owned a facial cleansing brush or massager. In the past, if I’ve wanted a similar scrubbing effect, I’ve used a toothbrush (dedicated purely for that use). But for £1 I wanted to give this a go.
I’ve been really impressed with it, the cleanse side works brilliantly with everything I used along side it, whether that’s a creamy wash (such as Clean & Clear Wash or First Aid Beauty’s Deep Cleanser) or an exfoliator (such as First Aid Beauty’s Facial Radiance Polish). I love the results it gives, which is very clean and fresh feeling skin with any dead skin sloughed off. I find my face looks brighter the following day, and complexion overall improved. I think the bristle are soft enough that they wouldn’t agitate sensitive skin, but considering I don’t have sensitive skin you cannot hold me to my word there. And for those like me, who occasionally like the benefits from a bit of a rougher clean, using it in combination with an exfoliator does the job perfectly. I could personally use it on my skin everyday if I wanted to but this will differ from person to person.

As for the massage side, I am equally besotted with it. I am predominantly using it with my Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-Oil, but have also used it with my day-to-day moisturiser. Regular facial massage, as with any massage, encourages blood circulation and overall just feels lovely. I have been using it all over my face, along my jawline and under my chin (I read a lot about massagers helping to rid you of any double chins – so it’s worth a try). I’m careful around the eyes, but as long as you apply sightly less pressure there is no reason, in my opinion, why it cannot be used everywhere. I can do this from anywhere between a couple of minutes to ten minutes depending on what else I am doing. Afterwards my skin is slightly red but that fades quickly. I find my skin does look plumped and more youthful. As for the double chins – I’ve not been using it consistently enough, or long enough to see any changes there.
My overall opinion is that I’m really happy I picked it up, and knowing how well it works I would of happily paid more for it, so the fact it’s £1 — well, I don’t see where you could go wrong with it.
Have you tried any of the Primark beauty or skincare range? What have been your thoughts?
