It's been nearly 2 weeks since I attended This Morning Live Show with Panasonic Beauty. It was a blast and if you follow me on Instagram, you've seen how much fun (and prosecco... oops!) we've had. After the facial at the hands of a beauty therapist, I was gifted Panasonic EH-XC10 3-in-1 Micro-Foaming Facial Cleansing Brush* which is the one tool you need to update your double cleansing routine. 

Double cleansing: makeup removal

It's important to adjust your cleansing routine to your skin personal needs. I am a firm believer that every skin type needs an effective double cleansing regime. The first cleanse should be about makeup removal. Here, I recommend cleansing oils. Oils dissolve even waterproof makeup fast and also are proven to remove high SPF more thoroughly. Currently, I'm loving Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil (POST), Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil and DHC Cleansing Oil*, all of which work brilliantly at removing makeup and are gentle enough to be used around the eyes without any discomfort or stinging. I apply a generous amount of oil and warm it a little in my hands before giving my face a massage. I remove eye makeup first, giving myself a sexy Panda look. I then pick up a warming tool of my Panasonic EH-XC10 3-in-1 Micro-Foaming Facial Cleansing Brushon higher temperature setting and proceed with my massage. The feeling is super luxurious as the tool moves alongside my face and warms up the oil. You just have to take me by my word, but there's no feeling like it! I remove the remainder of oil and all the makeup with a cotton towel soaked in warm water.

Double cleansing: second cleanse

Second cleanse is about making sure all the makeup and SPF film is gone, your pores aren't blocked and your skin thoroughly cleansed. I adore the second step and rotate the products I use and love every 2-4 weeks. Usually it's a cleansing balm and I've been loving Burts Bees Deep Cleansing Balm lately. However, my new Panasonic EH-XC10 3-in-1 Micro-Foaming Facial Cleansing Brushmade me fell in love with foaming cleansers once more. I have been gifted some samples of Urban Veda Daily Reviving Facial Wash* during the event and I've been using it religiously in the morning as first cleanse or in the evening as a second cleanse. I pour a little of foaming cleanser into the brush (check out my step by step instructions below). I attach the soft brush to the device and pour a little luke-warm water into it. I set it on normal speed as I prefer it this way and go around the face in the circular motions. The brush is gentle enough to go around the eyes too! I was worried given how sensitive my eyes are but both the cleanser and the brush seems to be working well and I haven't experienced any discomfort! Ultra soft brush gives my skin very delicate wash and exfoliation and feels divine! I then remove the brush head and flush the brush with water to remove the remainder of the foaming cleanser, then attach the smaller and firmer head. I give my chin and around the nose a deeper cleanse and I find this to be helping with my hormonal spots around the chin and blackheads around the nose area. 

Before & after care:

  • After the initial charge, I've been using a brush for more than 10 days now and the battery is holding well. I wonder how long it'll hold in the end and I'll report on it later. 

  • Before use, I always soak both brush heads in hot water to ensure their clean. 

  • After use, I place both brush heads in the hot water and let them soak to ensure no bacteria has a chance of survival (LOL!) 

My final thoughts

I really enjoyed using this brush and will continue to do so. My cleansing routine has always been good and I won't be replacing my balms with the brush completely, but I really enjoy using it and I think I'll mostly use it in the morning as I find that to be a great tool to wake up my skin and give it a good cleanse! I love using the warming plate part, I find the feeling so luxurious and relaxing. If you love your cleansing oils, I recommend you trying warming in up and giving yourself a face massage with it. It really is divine! Panasonic EH-XC10 3-in-1 Micro-Foaming Facial Cleansing Brushis definitely a great tool for double cleansing. It's not only effective but also creates almost facial like experience at home. It's not the cheapest tool out there, given its £150.00 price point but I think it would make a great gift to any skincare enthusiast, be that a friend or to treat yourself. It makes double-cleansing fun! I'd recommend it to anyone who's unsure if their cleansing routine leaves their skin thoroughly cleansed. My skin is cleansed but not irritated or stripped of moisture so I highly recommend you try it! I'm tempted by the other device used on me during a facial at Panasonic Beauty and I'll most probably treat myself to Panasonic EH-XT20 3-in-1 Micro-Current Facial Enhancer once it goes on sale!
