First Beautifan Review and Giveaway

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for a review purpose, but the opinions are my own based on my experience.]

Hi again, my dear bumblebees! So if you've read my previous post, you'd probably know that I've been selected to be the part of Beautifan team, a cosmetic review website that was published for providing unbiased and honest review to people. Please note that all of the products that I'll be reviewing for Beautifan were provided by Ibuybeauti. You can actually read my review below on their website, here's the original post, I hope that in the future you'll check their website frequently because there are so many other lovely beauty bloggers who will share their own product reviews. It's really interesting to finally be able to join the team and meet new friends from different parts of the world :D

So here is the first product from them that I'm going to share with all of you ^^ It's from my favorite Korean beauty brand, Etude House, and their wonderful skincare collection, Wonder Pore.

Etude House Wonder Pore Brush.

I have been using Wonder Pore products (the toner and facial foam) since the beginning of 2014, and I've been wanting to try the other Wonder Pore products since that time. Back then my skin was sensitive, because I just got through a doctor prescribed medication to heal my acne. However, my skin type has changed now, it's not that sensitive anymore, I have stopped taking the antibiotics as my skin has become better. I've learned that the key to have a smoother skin is to cleanse it properly too, you don't want those clogged pores to stay on your skin, right? Clean the clogged pores and your skin will thank you. Using a facial brush is one of the method to exfoliate it.

The directions on how to use and dry the brush.

Even though there's no English explanation on how to use this brush, I think the illustration is well described. If not, let me quote the translated directions from Ibuybeauti:
  1. Wet the brush
  2. Make enough bubble onto the palm
  3. Gently apply it to the face like drawing circles
I was confused with the bottom right illustration, but it turned out to be the effective way to dry the brush.

The brush packaging.

There's no doubt Etude House is my favorite when they always managed to package everything as cute as possible. Even it's only a facial brush. It's made of hard plastics and the bristles are white and synthetic, which I think it can turn into whatever your facial wash color if you use it long enough and it can change color into yellow-ish as well if you use it for cleansing makeup base such as BB cream or foundation. I myself, double cleanse my face everyday, so I only tested this to cleanse the BB cream due to the review purpose. When I found out the BB cream turned the bristles yellow-ish, I immediately washed the brush again so yea, it's still white until now.

The bristles from above.

I was a bit skeptical with the quality of the brush at first glance, the bristle looks similar to the toothbrush. Well, seeing the picture of this product, it doesn't look that soft, don't you agree?

In fact, it is very, extremely soft! I was shocked too when I touched it for the first time. It's really unfortunate for me being not to be able to compare it with other facial brushes because this is my only facial brush. However, it doesn't feel like toothbrush at all.

Dry and wet.
Kindly click on the picture to zoom in, dear bumblebees!

The bristles are super soft, gentle to the skin and it can create bubbles too when I tried using it with my mom's facial gel. Although this brush isn’t helpful in removing waterproof makeup, I’m amazed by how it can cleanse the BB cream thoroughly (I am using Wonder Pore Whipping Foam) when I tested it on my hand. I like the brush holder too, it is designed perfectly for a steady grip.

I dropped the brush accidentally a couple of times, and there’s no scratch whatsoever found on the surface. The packaging is also very travel-friendly, and I’m glad that there’s some holes on the container so that the excess water can drip and/or the wet brush can dry out more quickly.

Why I think the brush is worth it:
  • Cute and convenient packaging
  • Durable
  • Soft bristles, gentle to the skin
  • Effective in cleansing makeup base residue
  • Affordable price considering its durability
Tips: Because the bristles are white, I recommend you to cleanse the point makeup and base makeup first with cleansing oil or water before using this as I noticed that the bristles can change color. Unless you're okay with yellow bristles later, then it's fine.

Price: USD 6.99

  4. I'm kinda afraid to use this kind of brush to clean my face because I have a very sensitive skin. Is it like... really really soft and there's no sticky hair brush that makes itchy feeling?

    1. Ah, though I'm not really sure if the brush will suit a very sensitive skin despite its extremely soft bristles, I think it'll be okay as long as you don't brush it too hard on the skin.. Yes. It is very very soft, however because it's my first facial brush, I'm not able to compare it with another one that might probably suit a very sensitive skin better. It can tickle a bit when it reaches the nose part at first, but now I am used to it so I don't mind with that feeling anymore.
      Just for a comparison, my skin is slightly sensitive and thin (that's what my beautician said hehe), but I don't find any trouble with this brush up until now ^^

    2. Hehehe ok thank you. I think I should search for a softest one ;D

  15. Haha I dislike Etude House for the exact same reason you like it! The cutesy cutesy packaging is a little too much for me. I think adding in another product to my already very full skincare regime would just make me get up at a very unreasonable hour every morning. Lovely review, though! Rosemary x

  16. Oh this looks gorgeous and I love how I always see new products that we don't have over here - it's so lovely to see different brands!!

    I love facial brushes as I think they helps cleanse the skin a lot more and in turn reduce breakouts and just generally make skin look smooth so thank you for your posts!! :)

    1. Hi Diane! My skin is kinda prone to acne (blackheads and whiteheads to be exact), but it does a good job at reducing the whiteheads because it can cleanse the base makeup residue so well.
