There are so many electronic facial cleansing devices around at the moment, but did you know you can also get them for the body? Welcome, the pmd Clean Body Smart Body Cleansing Device* (£145.00) which I have been super lucky to have been trying out recently.
Now, more than ever antibacterial properties are big news when it comes to taking care of our skin. Loofah sponges and other body care products can harbour such things as dead skin cells, fungus, bacteria and even mould when not cleaned and replaced regularly. Regular sponges and washcloths which you can wash regularly are great for cleansing the skin but not exfoliating it and ridding it of dead skin cells.
The pmd Clean Body comes in a variety of colours to choose from and I went for the navy blue and gold option as I love anything blue - the colours obviously don't have any effect on the product itself, but it is always nice to have a choice. This device uses 7,000 vibrations per minute and breaks down dirt and oils on the skin, whilst also lifting, toning and firming the skin. It is made from silicone and is therefore odour-resistant, antibacterial, hypoallergenic and waterproof.
There are four modes on the device: Mode 1 gives a gentle vibration, Mode 2 gives an intense vibration, Mode 3 gives a gentle pulsation and Mode 4 gives an intense pulsation, so you can really change things up depending on your skin type and area of the body you are using it on. The pmd Clean Body is rechargeable and so you don't have to worry about batteries going flat or anything like that and it also features a travel lock that you enable or disable by holding the power button for three seconds.
The length of the brush means that you can reach behind you to cleanse and scrub your back and there is also a handle at the base of the device to be able to hang it up in your bathroom or shower. The Clean Body comes with three different attachments - the Silverscrub, Polish and Relax heads. The Silverscrub is a small loofah that contains silver, making it antibacterial and is gentle but exfoliates well, staying nice and firm even when wet. The Polish is an aluminium oxide exfoliator that gently buffs away dry skin and dead skin cells to leave the skin feeling super soft and smooth and I found this great to use on the dry skin of my feet too. Thirdly, the Relax attachment is the body massager and due to the vibrations and pulsations of the device, you can massage yourself with it, which is amazing for the top of the back, neck and shoulders especially.
Yes, the pmd Clean Body is expensive, there is no getting away from that, but in comparison with other electronic devices of this nature, it isn't unfairly priced whatsoever and this has honestly made such a difference to the way I take care of my skin and how much better it looks and feels now.
