Magnitone Pulsar Review and 7 Day Challenge ...




Magnitone Pulsar**

After seeing everyone rave about cleansing systems recently, I became very intrigued. I love skincare and think a good skincare routine is the most important part to a beauty regime, without a smooth canvas you cannot paint a clear picture and although I often forget to take my makeup off and am not as strict as I would like to be with my skincare routines, a new product, or tool in this case, often gives me encouragement to carry out a routine, so I took to do some research of my own on the subject.

Although there are so many systems out there, including the Clarisonic and the No7 version, the system that actually most appealed to me was in fact the Magnitone Pulsar, it seemed to have the most positive reviews and fell into the middle price bracket of them all, which I think is always your best bet and every review I read had suggested that it was definitely worth it's price tag. A couple of weeks ago I realised that I had actually forgot to put this on my birthday list, yes I still do those, and found myself rather disappointed that I wouldn't be getting one for my birthday, however on the same day this came to my realisation, I received an email asking whether I would like to review the product and the best part, my mum got the chance to try one out too** of course it only took me seconds to reply to them and within a couple of days my cleansing systems were with me! A* for Delivery!

About the Magnitone Pulsar...

The Magnitone Pulsar is a 100% waterproof cleansing system designed for everyday use on the face and body and uses advanced pulsed electromagnetic technology to cleanse your face, remove impurities and help to refresh, cleanse and stimulate the skin to help achieve that youthful glow. Magnitone promises that you will start seeing results in just seven days. I aimed to complete the 7 day challenge immediately, however I came down with a virus which left me unable to eat let alone carry out a skincare routine or review it any way possible so I didn't get round to starting my challenge until last week when I finally started to pick up a little!

Brush Heads...





The Pulsar brush comes with two heads, one for your face and one for your body, they are easily distinguishable as they are different shapes and colours, see pictures, there are also sensitive heads available for those with super sensitive skin. 

Charging...


To charge the Pulsar, you place it back to front in the cradle, you will most likely insist that this is wrong as I too thought so, but trust me it's the right way round this way (see picture above). Before you use the Magnitone Pulsar for the first time, it is recommended that you charge it for at least 24 hours, so of course this was the first step I took, though it was hard to keep my hands off it for so long! There on after, you can give the Pulsar a full charge for 24 hours or a quick charge for just 75 minutes which will give you enough charge to use for that day, however it is recommended that if possible you charge the Pulsar for at least 12 hours to help maintain the battery life.

Modes...


The four modes:

Sensitive: This is for use on sensitive skin and sensitive areas such as the bikini line sfter hair removal which can help to reduce rashes or burns from the use of your razor.

PulseLift Massage: Using this mode can help to encourage better blood flow to your skin resulting in reduction of wrinkles, fine lines and helping to tone the skin.

Exfoliate: This mode is great to use on dry areas of skin such as legs, elbow and knees in order to prep for fake tan, just simply switch the mode to exfoliate and use on legs/arms for 20 seconds and elbows/knees for 30 seconds.

Deep Cleanse: This is the mode I usually opt for during both my facial and body routine as I feel it gives me a better cleanse all round.

My Experience:

As I wanted to ensure any results I received were entirely down to the Magnitone Pulsar, I ensured that I didn't change any part of my usual skincare routine, including the products I use. Magnitone recommend that you use the Pulsar for just one minute. twice a day for the first 3 days, which can then be increased to two minutes after.

When using the Pulsar on my face, I first remove my makeup with the Garnier micellar water, I then cleanse my face manually with my Liz Earle cleanser, followed by a sensitive cleanse with the Liz Earle Cleanser and the Magnitone pulsar.

I also incorporate the Pulsar into my body routine and use it to focus on dry areas such as my knees and elbows. I also get severe dry patches on the tops of my feet, which I have been using the Pulsar on to try and reduce the dryness and so far they have smoothed out so much! I'm so happy as they actually make me feel self conscious in summer and if after just a week I they have become this soft, I can't wait to see the results come summer!

The first time I used the Pulsar, I found it to be a very strange sensation on the skin, my face was a little sensitive and was quite red afterwards, this does die down after a few uses, so I ensured that I used the sensitive setting for the first couple of days. After a couple of days I did break out, however this isn't unusual for me and could actually have been down to my hormones at that time, it has now been seven days since I started using the Pulsar and I have to say I am amazed with the results! First of all the difference between a manual cleanse and a cleanse with the Pulsar is eye opening! I have always cleansed manually and once my cloth is clean, I assume that my skin is also clean, however when I follow with Pulsar, the brush head is shockingly stained with the remaining makeup that must be deep in my pores, which probably explains my breakouts. My face is also a lot clearer, my redness has dramatically reduced and my skin feels so much smoother and softer, I've even had compliments from clients at work about how clear they think my skin is, which is amazing for me! I cannot wait to see my skin in a couple of months time!

My mum will be receiving her Magnitone Pulsar on Mother's Day, so I will post about her review when she has completed her 7 day challenge.

The Magnitone Pulsar is available from Boots, Amazon, HQ Hair, Look Fantastic, Beauty Expert, The Hut, Superdrug and Current Body.

Have you tired the Magnitone Pulsar yet? What do you think?

Love



** Although I got a Magnitone Pulsar for myself and my mum at a heavily discounted price, I did pay for both, and my reviews are entirely my own.
