Are Facial Cleansing Brushes a Necessity? | Magnitone London


To answer the question in the title of this post, yes. Facial cleansing brushes are now a necessity in my skincare routine and that's all thanks to Magnitone* for kindly sending me their limited edition Rose Quartz.

Here over on Chapters of Kat, I talk about make up... Food... Anything that takes my fancy really, but one thing I've never touched upon is beauty tools. That's because to be frank, most of them do what they say on the tin (or box in this case), but the Magnitone Barefaced* Brush is definitely worth the mention. Lemme tell you why...

Most of you reading this have more than likely heard of the Clarisonic, and if you haven't I'll just give you a quick overview of what these electric cleansing brushes actually do - Otherwise this post might be like a foreign language.


The job of the Magnitone Barefaced is to lift all the dirt and bacteria from your face, sounds gross right? It bloody works though. In comparison to a basic cleansing brush I already own, the Magnitone has much better features. For instance, it comes with two different power modes - One for an everyday cleanse, and the other is for toning. I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the toning mode but saying that it definitely does the job.

Another thing I love about the Magnitone is the built in timer. The brush beeps every 20 seconds to tell you it's time to move onto the next section... Pretty cool right? Maybe it's just the small things that make me happy.

After using this dreamy brush for a couple of months now, I can safely say there's been a vast improvement in my complexion. Not only does it cleanse my skin, I've noticed one I've used it, it brings all the tiny red spots to the surface... So yeah, I've broken out for a couple of days but then it clears right up. I actually don't know what I did before I owned a Magnitone as I couldn't imagine my skincare routine without it. It's an actual skin-saver.


The bit you're probably all waiting for, the price. Well, the Magnitone Barefaced brush retails at £70 which I think is pretty affordable for a top quality product and brand. I look at these types of beauty tools as more of an investment as skincare isn't something that should be taken lightly... My skin isn't gonna stay wrinkle free forever.

It's advised to change the brush head every 3 months for hygiene reasons but these can be repurchased through the Magnitone website and are actually pretty darn affordable... Think of it like buying new blades for your razor every couple of months.

To round off this post all I have to say is, god bless Magnitone for making my skin look super glowy and feel super healthy once again. This brush fo' sho' isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Have you tried a facial cleansing brush? Which is your fave?

  1. This sounds so interesting. First off, the brush is gorgeous in that colour! I´m really trying to up my skincare games as I really can´t stand all my spots anymore so I´ll definitely take a deeper look into it. Maybe another thing to put on my Christmas wish list

    1. It's done wonders for all the little bumps I had on my face! Fab for my hormonal breakouts too, they're basically non existent anymore. x

  3. I have a Clarisonic (which I bought almost 4 years ago now!) but I haven't used it for ages. I did really like it though, so perhaps I'll try it out again soon - this post has reminded me of it!

  4. This sounds amazing! I've just always used my hands to wash my face and I never feel as if I'm doing enough, the 20 second feature is what attracts me to it the most because I never know how long I should actually spend scrubbing my face! Great review Kat 😘

  5. I loved my Magnitone Barefaced but it broke! *sobs* It literally used to be so amazing in my skincare routine and everything you said is spot on! I'll definitely have to try and get another one when I have the money!

  10. I'm actually really partial to the Foreo Luna. I think it is so much easier to maintain and works better. :)
