Professional Skin Care System

The last time that I wrote about a product similar to this, I enjoyed it. However, the relationship wasn’t meant to last as that spin brush broke on me. I was  hoping that I would like this one better, and I do.. now.

The ToiletTree Skin Care System is very similar to the spin brush by Vitagoods. It comes with the same four heads.

  • Facial
  • Soft facial
  • Body
  • Pumice stone

In fact, the brushes use the same snap on system so you can swap them. The design of the base is a little different though. ToiletTree’s spin brush doesn’t have a 90-degree head. I find that I have to hold it at a slightly different angle, and would like the head to be angled more. However, this certainly isn’t a deal-breaker.

According to the website, the brush helps exfoliate, reduce blackheads, keep skin soft and radiant and remove makeup. I do think that you will likely want to remove makeup, especially eye makeup, separately from the brush. I have some mascara and eyeliner that’s especially stubborn and this brush just won’t cut it.

The button is also a bit different. Rather than being angled, it’s a single push to turn the brush on or off. This brush has a single speed setting. When I first received the ToiletTree skin care brush, it came with four AA batteries. I might have not quite inserted them correctly because the brush wasn’t spinning with much power at all. The brush would randomly shut off and couldn’t even keep spinning when I pressed it against my skin.

I thought it might have been the batteries that it came with so I swapped them out and it performed much better. I swapped the original batteries back in, and not it  works like a charm. I’m not sure what the issue was but I’m glad it’s sorted out now.

When it’s on full power, it’s a little loud but nothing that I mind once I’m in the shower. It performs well enough with any of the face or body scrubbing brushes. Like the Vitagoods brush, I’m not a fan of spinning pumice stones. You really need more power if you want effective callus or dead skin removal. This is fine, though.

The regular face and body brushes are similar texture. They’re not harsh on the skin at all, but this comes with a softer facial brush if your skin is sensitive. I find that the softer brush loses its shape more quickly so make sure it’s not touching anything as it dries.

The overall construction of this brush feels pretty secure. There’s a ‘lock’ on the battery cover that you need to turn to get the batteries in and out, which is nice. A coin will do the trick if your nails aren’t strong or thick enough. Also, there’s a loop through the end of the brush, which means you can slip it around your wrist to prevent you from dropping it, which is what killed my Vitagoods brush ultimately.

You can also choose from multiple colors when it comes to this professional skin care system. I got mine in grey because it’s neutral. Another benefit is that this brush cots a fraction of what Vitagoods is asking at just under $40. Based on price alone, ToiletTree’s brush is definitely the better option. You can purchase it at Amazon here.

    I hope this brush lasts much longer!

    Oooh, I think I need to get one of these. I used to have one made by Ponds I think, but this seems like it would work better, since this has actual brushes and that one only had these disposable pads.

    I’ve already dropped it and it’s still working — so it’s better than the last!

    I’ve been using it to help with my dry skin this winter, too.
