7 Day Challenge to Better Skin: Magnitone Lucid

7 Day Challenge to Better Skin: Magnitone Lucid

May 19, 2015

A couple of weeks ago I took part in the Bloggers Hub #BHTWITTERPARTY and was luckily enough to be gifted with a Magnitone Lucid* in the colour Plush Pink. I didn’t have to wait long for delivery and when I got a message from my Boyfriend telling me that a package had arrived for me I was shocked at how quick it had come after my email confirmation. It was like Christmas opening up the huge package as I was so excited to try it.

The Magnitone Lucid is a facial cleansing and exfoliating brush that helps to make your skin feel alive. Magnitone kindly sent a detailed letter challenging me to try out the ‘7 Day Promise’ for better skin, saying that the Magnitone Lucid aims to give your clearer skin in just 7 days. I was really excited to see my results as lately I have been suffering from really dry and blotchy skin, so visible results in only 7 days seemed too good to be true.
Magnitone Lucid
I took a picture of my skin on day one and as you will see below it’s quite red and puffy, which is always something I have had to deal with. One of the great things about the Magnitone Lucid is that you can use any cleanser you want with it, so I decided to use my Deep Action 2 in 1 Face Mask and Wash as it’s super thick and creamy, making it easier to see what I was doing!
The first day that I used it I put the cleanser onto the brush itself, but after 60 seconds of not a lot happening at all I decided to apply my cleanser directly to my face first. It definitely worked a lot better although it does say you can do it both ways. There are two settings (deep clean and sensitive) and has a handy little timer that beeps every 20 seconds allowing you to focus on problem areas easily, which was really helpful as I have absolutely no sense of time at all. Straight after my first use, I felt refreshed and my skin felt amazingly soft, much better than after my normal bedtime routine.
The next day of using it started to sting a little bit, which I thought could be down to using it on deep clean straight away so I decided to try again using the sensitive setting the next day but it was no different. It was making my face really red and was almost an unbearable to use, which actually quite worried me. I know I have quite sensitive skin, but it’s nothing I have ever worried about this much before.
Day three and four saw a lot of break outs, which I a few other bloggers reassured me was a good thing and my skin would definitely get worse before it got better as the Magnitone as it was getting rid of all of the bad stuff that was clogging up my pores! Although I had quite a few spots I could feel a difference in my skin but at this point I was starting to find it really difficult to use and it was painful to touch my face, so I had to give myself a day break.
After one night of not using my Magnitone it was no less painful or easier to use and although after the redness had gone down I really felt as though my skin was improving. By day seven I was struggling to find the motivation to use it again, because you can imagine how frustrating it is to know that something that would do my skin some good was going to hurt me as much as it did.
As you can see from the picture the results are actually pretty good and my skin looks a lot smoother and clearer. I think even in the picture it’s easy to see that my usual puffiness has gone down. I haven’t come to a verdict as to whether I think it is worth the pain or not, but I think I might carry on using it 2-3 times a week to see if it is any easier or less painful.
I have read so many great reviews about the Magnitone Lucid and a lot of my friends have used it and not experienced any problems and absolutely love using it daily, so I know a lot of it is down to my sensitive skin. If you are interested in trying the Magnitone Lucid then I have an exclusive discount code for 20% off. Just enter GINGER20 at the checkout.
Have you tried the Magnitone? What did you think? Can you recommend anything for my sensitive skin?

    My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

    Together, we can change the way that travel looks today

    • AD | It’s been six months since I boarded the plane and made my way to New York for the beginning of my Trek America trip and even now, I can’t stop thinking about it. From sitting around the campfire making hot dogs and s’mores to line dancing in honky tonk bars in Nashville, it’s honestly one of the best trips I have EVER been on ❤️🇺🇸

    • If you told me two years ago that I will have spoken at TEN (!!) events before the end of 2019 I probably would have laughed. I’m shy, nervous and 90% of the time I can’t string a sentence together (especially under pressure) 🤭😂
•
•
Speaking was something I never imagined myself getting into but with each speaking engagement I find myself wanting more and more. With 3 international events and a panel at the world’s biggest travel event behind me, I feel like I can definitely call myself an international public speaker now, right? 🌍

Time to update the bio.... 👏🏻

    • Today has been a super productive day as I’ve spent the afternoon writing some of the content that has been on my to-do list for the last few months. I always find I have ideas much faster than I can write them, so more often than not I have a big backlog of posts to publish 🤭📝

Does this happen to anyone else? 🙋🏼‍♀️

    • I definitely do not look like this right now as I’m currently sat on my sofa in my new Christmas pyjamas, finishing off my client work for the week. Although I LOVE travelling and being on the go, I also love having the chance to get back to my day-to-day routine and do the work that usually piles up whilst I’m away. Does anyone else get like this? 🙌🏻🙋🏼‍♀️

In this photo, I’m actually sat in front of two of the Three Brothers in Riga (the yellow and the blue buildings). The three historical houses in Old Town Riga were built closely together, with legends saying they were given their name as they were constructed by three men of the same family. Not only that, but they are also the oldest medieval dwelling houses in Riga. 🏘🏡🏠 #riga #liveriga #rigaoldtown #rigailoveyou #riga🇱🇻 #rigainmycolours #rigalatvia #latvia #rigatraveltour #rigaofficial #threebrothers #rigainsta #rigastories #visitlatvia #latvia🇱🇻

    • AD | Gifted Tour 🇱🇻 Riga, you have stole my heart ❤️
•
•
Despite three days on my feet at WTM, yesterday I decided to brave a four hour walking tour of Riga in Latvia. Our guide was incredibly passionate about the city and honestly, it’s easy to see why. From the colourful mittens to the fascinating history behind some of the most stunning buildings, it’s safe to say Riga definitely has character 🧤🏘
•
•
The beautiful building behind me is known as the House Of The Blackheads, which was built in 1334. Originally a meeting place for meetings and events, the building was destroyed in the Second World War. Rebuilt in 1999, it is now known as the most photographed building in Riga 📸 #witsriga #wits #womenintravelsummit #riga #liveriga •

    • Hello from Riga ❤️🇱🇻
•
•
Okay, okay. I know this photo wasn’t taken in Riga but after a busy day exploring the city yesterday, I haven’t had a chance to go through any of the photos I took yesterday! I really need to put the insta back into Instagram 🙊📸
•

That’s cool Kirsty, but why are you in Riga? 🤭

I’m here for the first ever Women In Travel Summit Europe! In just under an hour I’ll be hosting and participating on a panel that shares how to achieve success on a global scale. We’ll be covering pitching to brands, asking for money and overcoming rejection. Hands up if you’re going to be there? 🙋🏼‍♀️ #WITS #WITSRiga
    • My first ever World Travel Market is over and I still can’t believe I was given the opportunity to share my narrative on stage at the worlds BIGGEST travel event. It has taken 40 years of WTM for diversity to be talked about on stage and honestly, to be there representing plus size travellers across the globe feels like my biggest achievement to date 🥰👏🏻
•
•
It was such and honour to be on the panel alongside @marty_sandiego @sassywyattofficial @philwaukee and @hownottotravellikeabasicbitch and I think that together, we challenged some of the stereotypes we face and the issues that surround diversity and inclusion 🙌🏻
•
•
Although I feel a sense of pride from what was achieved yesterday, it was so so heart breaking to look around the room to see that most of the people in the audience were there to support us, rather than the room being filled with people who actually needed to hear what we had to say. There were very few key players and decision makers there and honestly, they’re the ones that needed to show up 🤭
•
•
As big of an achievement as this it is still shows that we have a LONG LONG way to go.
•
•
Thank you so much to @marty_sandiego for the opportunity and thank you to @visitoakland for sponsoring the ‘Every Traveller Matters: One Perspective To Another’ panel ❤️🙌🏻 #wtm #wtmlondon #wtm2019 #ideasarrivehere #diversityandinclusion
