The 3 Facial Cleansing Tools You Need to Elevate Your Routine

While it can be a pain, nothing feels better than climbing into bed with a clean face that’s fresh from the day’s make up, dirt, and pollutants. And if you’re like most, you probably wash your face with your hands – but what if there was a better way to deep clean your face? Spoiler: there is!

Hold up, what are facial cleansing tools?
In short? The answer to a glowing, more radiant complexion! Facial cleansing tools refer to brushes, sponges or any other exciting devices that are incredibly effective at removing stubborn make up, dirt, pollution, and other impurities – this is especially important if you live in a bustling city, as micropollutants in polluted urban environments are able to penetrate the skin barrier, resulting in everything from inflammation and breakouts, to hyperpigmentation and even premature skin ageing (no thank you!). Cleansing tools ensure that you can thoroughly be rid of every last speck of dirt lurking in your pores, that you otherwise might have missed by using your hands.

So, which one is right for me?
The best thing with facial cleansing tools (apart from getting your face squeaky clean), is that there’s something for every skin type and need. The world is your oyster! But if you’re in need of inspiration, here are three that are guaranteed to clean your face of all the dirt and grime life throws your way.

Face Brush: Brush it off! This adorable little cleansing brush feels as great on your skin as it looks on your bathroom countertop and is designed to deep cleanse those stubborn areas, such as the creases of your nose and other contours of your face, where you always seem to find pesky make up residue no matter how much you scrub. Its deep-cleansing prowess is thanks to thousands of ultra-soft nylon bristles that effectively (yet tenderly) deep cleanse every corner of your face. Pro tip: it works its magic best when combined with foaming cleanser, creating a lovely lather that leaves your face feeling fresh, radiant, and ready for new adventures (or bedtime – totally up to you).


Charcoal Konjac Sponge: What’s this thingamajig, you might be asking yourself? You’re not alone, as this highly effective, all-natural and 100% biodegradable little sponge has somehow managed to fly under the beauty radar for quite some time. Made from the konjac root, a porous root vegetable most commonly found in Asia, the konjac sponge cleanses and gently exfoliates your skin at once, leaving you with a flawlessly radiant complexion. Because they’re gentler on the skin than scrubs, they’re perfect for daily use, even if you have dry or sensitive skin that gets irritated easily. Okay, you think to yourself, but will it get rid of my stubborn evening make up? To that we say: goodbye racoon eyes! Just soak the sponge in water for a few minutes, apply your favourite cleanser, and voila! A deeper cleanse and no more pillow streaks. Note that because konjac sponges are all-natural and super absorbent, it’s important to keep them clean and free of any residue.

SkinPro Sonic: Now for the days you feel you need some extra care and pampering, this 3-in-1 skin care device comes in handy! It’s equipped with 3 different heads: one for cleansing, one for exfoliating and one for massaging – all which will leave your skin spotless and radiant! You can incorporate it every day in your skin care routine or anytime you feel you need a little facial cleansing and de-stress - we think this is a device that's worth making time for!

In our quest for radiant, spotless skin, it’s nice to have some helping hands along the way!
