I bought this product due to all the great reviews here on MUA. I was so excited because I thought this may be able to clear up all the black heads around my nose and chin that for I've had for about 4 years.
My forehead also used to be covered in little pimples, but cleared up about a year ago. My chin was also absolutely terrible for quite some time with giant pimples (and blackheads) when I started washing my face with honey, my face started to clear up a lot (Blackheads were still there, but pimples were all gone!) And my skin looked the best it had in years. Then I started using the facial buffer. I used it for about 2 weeks straight. I used it almost everyday (just like a lot of other people here on MUA) My chin started to have a MAJOR freak out, my cheeks started to break out (which hardly ever get acne) and my forehead started to get little pimples on it everywhere. Which haven't happened for almost a year! And my skin is not the sensitive type. So, what I'm trying to say, is DONT buy this product please!
I got this from a body shop store yesterday! It is just WOW! I cannot recommend this enough! I don't think I will ever need any of those scrubs anymore! Even if I do, I would only use the scrub once in a week, bcoz just using this buffer with a normal facewash, works wonders! My face has never felt cleaner - not even after looong facial care regime! I have used from the normal to those high end products, including clinique and estee lauder, they are good in their own rights, but when you have this buffer, their is no need for those high end scrubs and cleansers and face wash etc..No need to waste so much money on those products! Because it removes even the slightest trace of dirt and dead skin from your face. I know to some, it might feel as if it's too harsh on your skin but I feel that really depends on how hard you rub it against your skin! Just 2-3 rounds of rub across the face does it for me! So how you use it and with what pressure is really up to you, but, I can vouch for this product, that it's just amazing! It's great for travel too, I can put it in my travel makeup kit and off we go! I was always concerned of carrying that extra bottle of scrub and those products, but with this - I can easily ditch the scrub! Atleast for my travels! Otherwise, once in a week, scrubing the face is now enough for me, when previously, I would scrub atleast three times.
Also I would like to mention that some people might alternately wanna use this buffer once or twice a week, becoz you may feel, it's too harsh - well it's not, its actually cleaning off the grime off of your face, and you control how hard you rub it on your face, so I dont think that should ever be an issue! Infact, you will love how your skin breathes after you try this buffer, even if just once! I personally like to use it daily, becoz now not only is my face clean, but there are no blackheads on my nose anymore - something which would only go, if I maintained scrubbing daily. But now even if I use this buffer for a day, and then skip it for two days, and travel out - then also my nose is sparkling clean :P
Like I said, I could go on and on about this - but take my word for this - for this price - you can't get such an AWESOME PRODUCT! TRY IT! YOU WILL just LOVE IT :)
I love this little face buffer. I have only used it twice and already it leaves my skin feeling really soft, softer than with other expensive exfoliators I use. I use it with my foaming cleanser at night. It feels quite rough on first use, but leaves skin glowing.
Wow. I am VERY impressed with this buffer. It has actually cleared up my acne. I honestly cannot believe it. I have been using the Skintactix regimen for about a year and my skin has improved significantly, but I would still have between 3-6 zits on my face at any given time (which was a HUGE improvement from before) or some redness or irritation. I started using this buffer about a month ago. At first I used it 3 times a week. Now I use it daily (which is probably too much). My skin is amazingly soft. I have no actual zits on my face and the redness has calmed down.
This buffer + Skintactix have given me the clearest skin I have had for over 5 years!!
I feel like I need to go stock up on these just in case!
OMG! I love this stuff this is my CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT.
My acne is almost gone because of this buffer.
I use this with my Clarins shea butter cleanser (I have dry skin) and use the buffer for about 3-4 min. After that I rinse my face with water..
And my face is so so soft and smooth and bright.. ! I just love this!!
And it is so cheap !
I DON'T think I need a clarasonic because this stuff is amazing!
You have nothing to loose if you buy this :D
AmAzing facial buffer like a face sponge I can use this with a gentle clanser really softens face I cant beleive I did not find this sooner instead of wasting money on exfoliators hats dont agree with my skin - can see product working v v good can be washed- well recommended and worth it. leaves skin feeling clean can be used dry (with creeam cleanser) or damp I think better when face it damp/wet- v v good.
I was skeptical at first when using this due to my sensitive skin- better than any other product I can use my own cleanser without worrying about any harsh chamicals /breakouts in exfoliators- THE KEY IS TO USE LIGHTLY
I bought this a few days ago after the raving reviews left on here. I've been looking for a product or item to use on my skin which will make a difference. I exfoliate my face when I remember but I needed something a bit more intense. I've only used it once and the next morning when I woke up my skin was bright and fresh. I will use it again tonight. I don't have particularly sensitive skin but I noticed some people said this can be harsh on sensitive skin due to the texture. It's actually not as corse as I expected so I can go a bit heavier with my hand. I will definitely repurchase once this becomes grubby and worn.
more people have to know about this item its amazing after i used it i felt my skin was sooooo bright and glowing and its dirt cheap to i would highly recomend it
wow, bought this because of the reviews on MUA and even after the FIRST day my skin looks a lot better. its the third and my skin looks so luminous with out makeup, i already have a better complexion i cant imagine what it will be like a couple months from now.
i used to want a clairsonic but now i don't see the point if my skin is already becoming flawless without it.
With the amount of products I'm using on my face, I wanted to eliminate one. I was worried with all of the stuff I was using, they might be cancelling out the effects of another product. Plus I usually find regular scrubs in a tube are either too rough or to gentle or too drying, etc. So I figured with this, you could control the pressure you apply to your face, and which parts of the face to focus on, and obviously you won't be drying it out, plus thats one less product to use on my face. I'm glad I switched to this product. I need to scrub my face 3x weekly. Having oily skin means that it's regenerating at a faster rate, and when you get dead skin left on your face, that leads to more clogged pores and acne. Also, I'm using other chemical exfoliants for my acne and scarring (glycolic acid, retinol), and it's peeling my skin off at a faster rate, so once a week just doesn't cut it. I use it with Avene Cleanance Soapless Gel Cleanser while I'm in the shower. I put the cleanser on my face first and lather it up, and while it's still on my face I scrub it in. These things last a long time, I'm still on my first one that I bought last November, and it's still doing great. I bought 5 because they had some deal at The Body Shop, but if I ever get through all of those, I'll definitely be going back for another 5 :).
