Facial cleansing brush review

Once in a while I to try out new skin care gadgets mostly the ones used for facial cleansing. I have tried in the past facial, brushes, cloths and sponges. Several months ago I tried the facial scrubblet that comes along with the L'oreal 360 go clean facial wash, which I really liked (gadget) unfortunately I lost it. I decided to buy a different one this time and found this economic facial cleansing pad at

Brand: BDS
Price:$4.95 usd 
Color: Blue
Size: 8cm long/ 6cm wide


1) Removes superficial pore clogging debris

2) Exfoliates skin lightly in a non abrasive way

3) Gives a facial massage as it cleans

4) Can be used with any facial wash you choose

5) Affordable price

6) Convenient opening to handle, and hang gadget 
(as seen in picture below)

Even though the instructions came in another language I was able to understand with the pictures what the small opening on the bottom of the cleansing pad was for. It mainly serves two functions as the pictures show. The second function of the small opening serves is my favorite one as it is very functional.


1) Bristle tips are round, not pointy enough which would work 
better for deeper cleansing of the pores.
(See picture below)

Final word
Overall I can say this product does cleanse the skins surface, not as much as I expected though. It can be used daily as it is not abrasive to the skin which is an excelent option for those with sensitive skin. I would recommend this cleansing pad for those with sensitive skin, but if you want a deeper cleansing the this is not the cleansing pad to choose.

Fashion trends 2012

Every season new fashion trends are born, what is in today will be out of the scene tomorrow. It seems that for this 2012 what is ruling the runways is pleated dresses, shirts and skirts. Walking thru a few stores at my local mall all I notice is clothes with pleats, similar to the ones below.

A color that is dominating this year seems to be minty green. This fresh color which is a subtle hue of green is taking the center stage as one of the predominating color for this season. Any accessory in mint green looks fabulous with any outfit and there are many options at the stores to choose from. Jewelry, purses, shoes you name it any wardrobe piece can be found nowadays in mint green.

Affordable wardrobe pieces and accessories can be found at various local, and consignment shops. The second option is a great idea for those who like to search for original vintage pieces in mint green that no one else has. These are just a few ideas and looks you can try to create an outfit.

Thanks for stopping by
