With the stress of my PIP tribunal, my skincare routine has taken a backseat. If you’ve read my Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence Review, you’ll know just how much I loved this product. So when I got the chance to try the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device * I was delighted! It couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device is a deep an gentle cleansing device that’s used in combination with your cleanser to remove impurities and dirt. The sonic pulses gently penetrate deeper than a standard cleanser would, to leave your skin feeling soft and looking glowing. With three different silicon bristle areas to choose from and different speed options, you’re sure to find a setting to suit your skin. The device is also waterproof. So, if you cleanse your face as part of your shower routine, you can continue to do so.
I’m really lucky that I don’t get spots often. When I do, they’re hormonal and only one or two. So I can’t comment on how well the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device works to reduce breakouts. What I did notice was that, as well as leaving my skin feeling softer and smoother than with just my regular cleanser, the redness in my cheeks was reduced. I suspect this is due to the massaging effect the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device gives. It’s a great way to wind down before bed.
Now, there is a very big but coming. However, I’m going to preface this by saying that for the majority of people this isn’t going to be noticeable.
The Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device has a bright blue light in it’s base. This lights up when charging and flashes when any of the buttons on the device are pressed. So turning it on, changing the speeds, etc. will cause this light to flash. With the way my photosensitivity affects my basilar type and hemiplegic migraine this was really problematic for me. I had to cover the device with a black bag before charging it to hide the blue light.
To turn the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device on I had to hold it behind my back, so that the flashing wasn’t visible. I also had to make sure that my husband was in our bedroom (we have an ensuite) so that if I were to accidentally see the flashing, he would be there to make sure I was safe. Photosensitivity isn’t a common occurrence, but I know that some people visit my blog because they also have issues with various lighting so I felt it was important to mention this.
I really enjoyed the way the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device made my skin feel, and also the relaxing effect it had. So I’m going to try and put masking tape round the light to block it out, so that I’m able to keep using it.
The Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device is £49 and can be purchased from kathleennatural.co.uk. Now, £49 isn’t cheap, but when you consider that the Foreo Luna 2 designs cost £119-£169, the Kathleen Facial Sonic Cleansing Device is an affordable option. I’d highly recommend checking it out (if you aren’t photosensitive).
