Have you heard of the term “no makeup makeup”? No makeup makeup is pretty much self-explanatory but for those who is new to makeup, here’s my interpretation of the term no makeup makeup 😛 . No makeup makeup is where the makeup you applied on appear invisible or flawless and yet still flaunt your features and natural beauty. Usually a no makeup makeup look uses less product with mostly natural and light shades. As a matter of fact, I’ve been doing the no makeup makeup look daily for the past two weeks just for fun. Okay, now that you know what is no makeup makeup, this brings me to the product that I want to talk about today – a “no scrub scrub” Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush.
Let’s face it. Not everyone is born with smooth, flawless skin. I certainly don’t. But I don’t sit and blame for what’s already given to me. I like to search for ways and products to turn things for the better. Skin care had helped me with my skin a lot over the past few years, 3-years to be exact. My pores are easily congest with dirt, sebum/oil, makeup residue and even air pollutant too will cause blockage to the pores. I personally feel sebum and makeup residue is the biggest contributor to my clogged pores. That is why I like to use facial scrub and clay mask A LOT to get rid of congested skin problems such as blackheads and whiteheads.
I used to scrub my face three times in a week because my skin was that bad and I do see a difference when I do keep up with the routine. However as time goes by I notice that my skin is getting oilier. At my age, this can only mean one thing. I over-scrub my face! Holy moly Mother of God. So since end of 2013, I would only use facial scrub once every two weeks but of course that means I will see more blackheads and whiteheads. Then this came along 😀
Introducing the NEW Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush. It looked like a shaving brush to me at first LOL. But nope. The bristles are thinner than hair and each brush consists of a whopping 350,000 of 0.045mm superfine fibres!
Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush comes in a palm-fit size, made from a smooth antibacterial hardwood for the handle which is shaped like a slanted tear drop shape with aluminium (I assume) ferrules that holds all the 350,000 superfine fibres bristles. The brush doesn’t came in such a fluffy shape actually. It’s more condensely shaped but once I’ve used it and dries it, the bristles are now in such a cute and fluffy shape. At the tip of the wooden handle, there is a rope for you to hang to dry after use.
I couldn’t stop touching and running my fingers across all the ultra-soft bristles the minute I took out the brush from its original box. I showed it to my mum and dad and both of them literally shocked with the softness that they keep asking me what is it for and why is it so soft 😀 .
The reason why the bristles are this superfine is to ensure each bristle are able to cleanse deep into pores effectively to eliminate dirt, makeup residues, blackheads and impurities. The softness of it will also enable a cleaner and silky smooth skin as well as to help reduce pore size. While the bristles lift up all the dirt and so on from deep inside the pores, it is also removing dead skin cells to revive the natural radiance of the skin.
I must admit, it took me quite a few usage to really get the grip of using the Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush to cleanse my face. I’m too used to conventional scrubbing that I wasn’t used to no scrub scrub face cleansing. I kept thinking maybe the cleanser is not enough or there wasn’t any cleanser on my face because I couldn’t feel anything at all. I’m not kidding. It is so soft that it feels like I wasn’t washing my own face. Cleanser foams up effortlessly with the use of this brush and the foams are smoother and finer too. Just one note, there’s no need to use too much cleanser. You’ll spend more time rinsing the brush clean later on 😛
Here’s how I use it. Usually it’s on the whole face but for this review I’m going to just concentrate on the middle of my face because that’s where I have the most blackheads. Plus, the Before and After comparison would be more prominent 🙂 . For this I would suggest to pair with Yadah Anti-Trouble Bubble Cleanser as it’s a pH-balanced cleanser to maintain the natural acidity and moisture level of the skin while fighting acne break-outs by cleaning deep into the pores and it contain natural salicylic acid from wintergreen leaves to regulate sebum/oil levels and to draw out impurities from pores. If you don’t have any, just pair with any anti-blackhead or deep cleansing cleanser will do.
Please ignore the eczema red patch on my right eyebrow. It’s itchy and I’ve been scratching non-stop lol.
And here’s the Before and After using Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush for just three times with a week gap between first and second use with third use. I hang the brush to dry in my room that why I’ve forgotten about it.
Notice how much clearer my nose is? Especially the middle part. I must have kept swirling the brush non-stop there 😀
Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush would be a perfect alternative for dry skin to sensitive skin users that didn’t have the privilege to deep cleansing their skin before this. I do know quite a number of people who doesn’t like to use facial scrub or clay mask with the reason it’s too harsh or it’s too drying for their skin. This brush is a 2-in-1 brush that help to cleanse face as normal and to deep cleansing all the impurities from inside the pores. It is nothing like Clarisonic or Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System or even the latest gadget from Mary Kay. This one uses manual hand movement (good for biceps), mild on the skin and most importantly it works just as claimed. I did went gaga over this brush when I first lay my eyes on it because (1) I’ve never seen any pore cleansing brush before and (2) it’s uber cute.
What do you think about this Yadah Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush? I would love to hear your thoughts on it 😀
