SENSSE Beauty: A Review

Anti-Ageing Cleansing Brush

According to their website, SENSSE Beauty believe their products represent “inTRUEtive beauty,” which boasts the idea that “beauty is more than skin deep; it is about showing the beauty in your soul.”   The innovators at SENSSE Beauty have culminated a group of electrical products to help you achieve inner and outer beauty.  These products range from an interesting Hot and Cool Facial Bar to a much-needed (for me, anyway) Deep Pore Suction Cleanser.

A few months ago, I was approached by SENSSE Beauty; they offered me the opportunity to try out their Anti-Ageing Cleansing Brush in exchange for a review.  That being said, I would like to clarify that I was sent this electronic cleansing brush for free, but all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.  I have been an enthused fan of electronic cleansing brushes for over 2 years; however, I will not discuss my trusted brand as I want to focus on SENSEE Beauty in this review.

Matching Charger!

The first thing I noticed about the Anti-Ageing Cleansing Brush is how aesthetically pleasing it is! When I began to see this product circulating through the Blogosphere, I immediately thought “woah!”  It is hands-down the most beautiful piece of beauty equipment I have seen! As you can see from the photos, the cleansing brush (and packaging) is chic with hints of rose gold. The brush comes with a matching rose gold charging base which would look impressive on anyone’s vanity; the charger is USB-compatible and does not come with a mains adapter.

Once I got over the impressively sleek appearance, I studied the specifications.  The brush needs to charge for approximately 18 hours before use, so be sure to charge it as soon as you get it!  Even though that may seem like a long time, you can get up to 60 uses between charges (based on 1-minute usages).  It adhere’s to the “smart” technology theme, as it has 3 intensity levels and beeps every 20 seconds to remind you to change areas.  Those with sensitive skin need not worry, for the brush has a “gentle cleansing” mode and SENSSE Beauty claim that the brush head is sensitive enough for all skin types. The manual states that this cleansing brush utilizes 7200 oscillations per minute, and while this sounds promising, my trusted brand promises 15,000.  However, one must remember the price difference between the two (£30 difference based on an Amazon search).

Up-close of the Brush Head

Once my gorgeous cleansing brush was fully-charged, I was excited to finally try it out with my favorite facial cleanser: Murad’s Blemish Control Clarifying Cleanser.  I rinsed the brush head under the water (yes, it is shower-proof!) and it felt incredibly soft; next, I covered the head with my cleanser and began to wash my face. This is when I discovered my least favorite part of the brush: the handle.  I feel as though this may not be an issue for others, but since I have been using another brand’s cleansing brush for a few years, I am used to that handle and I much prefer it to this one. I felt awkward while trying to wash my face with this brush.  On the plus side, I felt this brush head was comparable to the more expensive brush head from my trusted brand.

On a whole, I was impressed with the quality of SENSSE Beauty’s Anti-Ageing Cleansing Brush, especially considering the hefty price difference between this brand and other electrical beauty brands.  If you’ve been wanting to try an electrical cleansing brush, I would definitely suggest starting out with this one from SENSSE Beauty; you can even purchase this brush from Amazon with peace of mind due to their 60 day money-back satisfaction guarantee and 2-year warranty!  The only downside is that they do not offer replacement brush heads at the moment; according to Amazon, the seller stated that if someone wanted replacement brushes, they need to contact them at websales@mplhome.com.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  Have you used a product like this before?  Have you tried this one from SENSEE Beauty?  Tell me about your experiences below!!  image2 (1).JPG

The Blogger Crowd: Blogger Pack Review

Standard

image1

In July, The Bloggers Crowd released their first Blogger Pack, an organizational tool for bloggers.  I saw their advertisement on Insta Stories and jumped at the chance to check out their product for bloggers.  Luckily, Abbie sent it over quickly!  I was quite impressed with the PDF I was sent.  You could tell a lot of hard work went into designing this blogger pack. First, I will list what was included in the pack then I’ll share my thoughts.

The TBC Blogger Pack contained:

  • 2 prints
  • a daily planning page
  • blog post planner
  • 12 monthly planners which helps you organize
    events, birthdays, notes, and goals

Empowering Print!

As a part-time blogger who works 40-50 hours a week, I try to be as organized as possible.  I try to plan when I do blogging work as well as what I am going to post.  I am a newbie blogger who launched in May, so I haven’t really gotten into a routine yet.  I aim to post every week, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen; I am working on being more self-disciplined when it comes to blogging.  Due to my inability to stay on top of blogging tasks, I jumped at the chance to review this blogger pack.  I mean…who doesn’t want to be more organized???

Upon first opening the blogger pack, I was impressed with the quality of graphics .  I don’t know how people produce such adorable and fun prints!!  The title page (first photograph) immediately grabs your attention with the funky lettering and zigzags.  I absolutely love their logo!  The mix between cursive and all-caps is perfectly on trend.  The 2 prints I received (pictured above and below) are definitely empowering and motivating, which is a necessity!  My favorite is the “Get Shit Done” print because I routinely say this in my day-to-day life and because I LOVE me some coffee!  I plan on framing this and putting it by my laptop.  I think it will motivate me to stop procrastinating and give me the much-needed kick up the arse!

The blog post planner is so cute!  I am not typically a pink-loving person, but I adore the coral/pink colors used.  Again, I love the fonts used.  Layout-wise, this page works well.  There is a space for the title of the post at the top.  On the left, one can list photographs needed; on the right, one can ensure they include all the links needed.  A notes section is provided for any other information needed, and finally a space for when the post will be posted can be found at the bottom of the page.  I especially like the “going live” part because I think it would help me stick to a time frame if I write it down and continue to look while working towards completion.  This planning page aids bloggers in managing their blog posts.  As you can see, I already have started planning my next blog post; this will be a review of Which Beauty Box’s first curation.  I can’t wait to start ticking items off my to-do list!  This page is my favorite organizational tool from this blogger pack and I can see myself continuing to use it.

Next, I found a “What Am I Doing Today?” page.  Even though I am not so organized when it comes to blogging (yet), I am incredibly organized in my day-to-day life.   Therefore, I did not find this page particularly useful because I am obsessed with my daily Every Day Matters planner.  I believe that this planning page would be useful for someone who doesn’t routinely use a planner.  One can manage a to-do list, record their food/exercise, take notes, schedule blog posts, and keep themselves motivated with a “looking forward to” section.

Monthly planning pages

Next, I found 12 monthly overview pages; notice the different images in the top right corners.  I am a detail-oriented person and love small touches like that.  I filled mine out for August and it made me feel excited and organized, which are amazing feelings!  I find that when I write down everything I have going on, I am more motivated and better with time management.  I love the coral colors and layout.  I especially like how I can incorporate both my private, work, and blogging life into one planning tool.  I can see myself using these for the rest of the year.

I hope you enjoyed reading what I truly thought about The Blogger Crowd’s blogger pack. I thoroughly enjoyed receiving and reviewing this product, especially because it’s something I can use to increase my productivity.  I want to say thank you to TBC for giving me this opportunity and being patient with me.  I believe TBC will be releasing a finalized blogger pack, so be sure to follow them for updates.  Hint: they often post amazing opportunities on their Insta Stories so watch that space!!
