Face and Body Massagers; Benefits and Review | Skincare

Some time ago I bought two types of massager. The first is this face massager from The Body Shop (rrp £6).

The second is this body brush from Boots Botanics range (rrp £6). Sadly I can no-longer find this on their website.

Boots Botanics Body Brush | Bodyshop Face Massager

How to use

Face massager
·         I use this once or twice a day after cleansing but before toning.
·         I use up and down movements across my cheeks, forehead, under my chin and neck.
·         I also use very fast, vigorous movements because I find this gives me more benefits (these are listed below).

Body brush
·         Starting from the feet and working upwards, I dry brush my whole body using firm upward strokes (towards the heart).

Benefits of massage
·         Improves blood circulation.
·         Improves the lymphatic system.

Improving both of these will;
·         Help firm the skin.
·         Help fine lines and wrinkles appear less noticeable.
·         Helps the skin look younger.
·         Relaxes the muscles.
·         Gives skin a healthy, natural glow.

·         In order to notice the benefits of both of these, they need to be used on a regular basis. I have been using them regularly for a few weeks now and I have noticed some improvements. My skin feels firmer and the fine ‘laughter’ lines I have look less noticeable. Also after I have finished using them I find my skin feels a little ‘tingly’ and more ‘plump’.

I will definitely continue using these and I also recommend them to everyone to help improve their skin overall.

What do you guys think? Have you tried these before? What have you heard about these types of D-I-Y massagers? Let me know...
