Taking care of my face is something that is really important to me. It's the first thing people see when they look at you, so I always try to make sure my skin looks its best. My skin has always been really dry, especially the forehead area, and my nose. I have combination skin, which also means it's dry AND oily in some areas.
I saw a product that I wanted to try. It's an ultrasonic skin scrubber. I was skeptical, but I'm always open to try new beauty products. I usually like to use Biore Pore Strips, but what I hate about those is the residue, and it sometimes makes me break out. Despite that, it cleans the hell out of my pores. However, I wanted to try something different. So I bought a GUGUG Skin Scrubber, I don't know it there is an official brand, but this is the one I decided to go with.
It has four settings, cleaning, lifting, Ion+ and Ion-.
Cleaning mode cleanses your skin with deep, high vibrations. Use it on your skin dry or with a facial cleanser/soap. Lifting mode Is supposed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. I don't have those yet so I think I need to use that mode just yet lol. But I did try it to see how it feels. Ion+ mode helps remove black heads and dead skin. So far, I've used Ion+ the most. It most definitely removed a lot of impurities and dead skin from my face.
(yuck! This is just from my chin, how gross is that? lol)
Ion- is supposed to lift your skin and help it absorb nutrients. So this mode is probably great to use if you have some moisturizer on your face after cleansing. Here are some tips:
Don't stay on one area of your face for too long. The constant vibration may irritate your skin and make it sore. I have one spot on my chin that's a tiny bit sore because I kept going over that area multiple times while playing around with the scrubber. Also, don't press down on the spatula too hard. It won't take much for it to work. Let the vibration do it's thing. Use it at a slight angle, it will help lift and remove the impurities. It works better after steaming your face. It helps the scrubber remove impurities better when your pores are open.
Overall, I give GUGUG Skin Scrubber 4 stars. It's a keeper.
