DIY Spa Exfoliation

So I've seen all the ads and youtube reviews about Clarisonic brush tool and how amazing it is for exfoliation and general skin care. I really wanted to give it a try but wasn't ready for the over $200 price tag that was involved. The other night I was up late watching youtube video's and came across an amazing idea... use an electric toothbrush to aid in exfoliating the skin (disclaimer...I am not an expert on skin care and  advice I give is to be taken with a grain of salt and used with caution).

I tried this my using my normal exfoliator of Cetaphil and making soda then used the toothbrush to aid in those area's I find it hard to exfoliate such as around my nose and lightly all over the face as well. I was amazed with how smooth my face was after, much smoother then with my normal exfoliating techniques. My post treatments seemed to penetrate my skin much better leaving my skin feeling the best it had in quite a while. I have tried it with my normal cleanser as well and was still impressed with the grime that came from my skin! 

If you have used electric cleaning aids for you skin before give this one a try. It worked on my sensitive skin without a hitch! If you have never used something before you may want to get the advice of a skin care professional before starting a new routine.

@ Glitterish Allsorts- I have oily skin... yet I get dry patches, and this did wonders for making my skin feel even. If you try it let me know how you make out with it!!
