I’ve always wanted to try Clarisonic due to its raves on blogging community but the price is just too steep for me to go and actually buy one. Since price is the main reason that hinders me on purchasing a Clarisonic, therefore I decided to just purchase a more “budget friendly” cleansing brush instead. I asked my sister to buy a Cleansing Brush she can find in TAOBAO and she manage to get me the TWINBIRD 4 in 1 Face & Body Cleansing Set for only RMB98! (around USD13 or PHP 580)
I know TWINBIRD is far different from Clarisonic and it's not even close to be considered as dupe but I just wanted to try a device that works and functions quite similar to Clarisonic.
Anyhow, here goes my review on the TWINBIRD 4 in 1 Face & Body Cleansing Set:
1) Restore Soft and Smooth Skin
2) Exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal radiant and youthful skiin
3) Reduce fine lines and blackheads
4) Compact and Lightweight
a) Soft Sponge- Massages skin to increase skin elasticity
b) Soft brush- Deep clean and exfoliating purpose
c) Pumish- Exfoliate, polishes and removed rough callus skin on foot or elbow
d) Nail Polish- Smoothing and Buffing Nails
What the TWINBIRD claims to achieve:
1) Experience a much cleaner, softer and younger looking skin
2) Helps unclog pores and prevent blemishes
3) Promotes a healthy radiant skin
· Very handy, lightweight and user friendly device unit
· Easy to interchange different heads
· Affordable and nice sleek looking device
· NOT waterproof (although I’ve used this in the shower and have accidently soak into water and is still working fine)
· The 4 heads included are made with low quality materials:
a) Soft Sponge- not thick and smooth enough
b) Soft Brush- the bristles are a bit rough so if you intend to exfoliate using High speed it would hurt a bit
c) Pumish- it has the same quality of an ordinary pumish sold in sidewalks
d) Nail Polish- same as the Pumish
· No additional backup for the heads and I don’t think they sold heads separately
Even though there are much CONS compared to the PROS but I have to say that this really cleanses skin THOROUGHLY! I did an experiment comparing my face after washing it with bare hands versus washing it with the help of TWINBIRD and the results is very clear that TWINBIRD cleanses more compared to just using bare hands. It really digs deep and removes all those nasty dirt hiding beneath the pores.
I tone my face right after washing and you see clearly on the cotton pads the difference between using just bare hands versus using TWINBIRD Cleansing device.
I seldom turn the speed to high cuz’ it might be quite extreme on my skin thus I stick to just using the low speed and it works well on thorough cleansing. I usually just use the Soft Sponge and Brush Head as I really intended to just use this device on my face.
Overall, I’m pretty ok with the TWINBIRD cleansing set as it does cleanse my skin thoroughly.
