My skin and I have been in a love/hate relationship ever since I was a teenager. When it looks good, it looks really good. But when it starts to break out, it seems to just get worse and worse for weeks. It drives me crazy! So when ToiletTree Products, a company whose Fogless Shower Mirror and Toiletry Travel Bag I’ve featured on Mommy Kat and Kids in the past, contacted me about reviewing its new Professional Skin Care System, I knew I had to try it out.
I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of facial brushes. There are a few different brands on the market and the basic idea is that the gentle scrubbing will help stimulate cell regeneration while using the brush instead of hands will minimize the dirt and oil that is spread around the face and provide a deeper, more thorough clean. The ToiletTree Professional Skin Care System was unique in a few different ways. First of all, it actually included four different brush heads: a gentle facial brush for cleansing, a medium facial brush for exfoliating, a large soft brush for cleansing the body and a pumice attachment for feet and rough patches of skin on the body. It is powered by AA batteries and features a waterproof design making it perfect for use in the shower.
Initially, I only used the two facial brushes and I switched back and forth every day between the gentle and the medium attachment. I noticed the difference on my cheeks first. I have never really had problems with breakouts outside my T-zone before but for some reason, this winter has been especially hard on my skin and after talking to a few friends with acne-prone skin, I learned that seems to be a trend this year. After about a week of using the Professional Skincare System, I had managed to eliminate the breakouts from my cheeks and forehead. Even better, my skin tone was more even too!
After about another week, my chin, always the most troublesome spot for me, had cleared up significantly as well, so I decided to try some of the other attachments and see how they worked. I already use a body scrub regularly to remove dead skin cells and keep my skin soft and smooth, so I actually found the body brush attachment to be almost too soft for my skin. It’s something I would use occasionally but I didn’t feel the need to use it more than once a week or so. But the pumice attachment was another story. I’ve had issues with dry, rough feet for years now and even in the cold winter weather, using the pumice stone twice a week near the end of my shower has made a huge difference. I have a feeling I may just have my toes sandal-ready before the snow melts this year!
