Revlon Illuminate Skin Renewal System

Greetings everyone!  Let’s talk skin care this post. I have purchased a skin care device. It is made by Revlon and specifically called Illuminate Skin Renewal System . This review will discuss value, the device performance, and how I use this device.

Let’s jump right into value. This device comes with 5 attachments,the base device, plus batteries.  I got all that for $19.99 plus tax, at a local mart in my area. Here is a link to Replacements Sponge Heads. That is an awesome price point, since other major brands start at a price point of $120, and up! While au natural is moving in, skin care is going to be your ticket to EASY. This device would make an awesome gift to any college student. I can also see this as a great starter for someone who wants to get serious about skin care and would like to develop a serious routine. I actually feel really lucky to get this device at such an affordable price.  After seeing noticeable results with one use, we may purchase one for him!!!


My second discussion point is about device performance. Well I’d definitely say I got what I expected.  The Skin illumination device is battery-powered so the power behind the spin will change as the batteries loose juice, but pop in a new trio of double A, and viola! My device heads squeak a little when they turn but applying a little chap stick would probably fix that. I have 2 speed settings to choose from High and Low. The multi-speed options are awesome  functionality and I do use both speed variables when using this device which is Every Morning (see instagram just scroll down my page) and every night. There is an extraction attachment. I use it, but I rarely have pimples/ blemishes/ zits. Surprisingly I do find some body ash on the head after using it. This device extracts using suction. I am not sure if that is any more or less than a loop extractor, but it definitely increases circulation, and helps give that healthy glow. On to the bristles head. Yes it looks not as dense as other heads, but the way to use this attachment is for DRY brushing! And its amazing.

On to my Step by Step, How I use the Revlon Skin Illumination device.

My first tip is, to do this routine after a shower or bath. Or perhaps after a steam.

Step 1) wet your face,

Step2)Wet sponge

Step3)add your fav face wash to the sponge

Step4) turn that baby on, to low and allow device head to pass all over the surface of your face.

Tip: You do not need a lot of pressure.  Facial skin is delicate. Be nice to your collagen and let the device do the work.

Step5) Turn off device and wash off suds with tepid water. And pat your face dry

Step6) attach the brush head, and dry brush all over your face. This is amazing and gentle exfoliation.

Hair Colour Analysis

Do you have virgin hair? What is porosity? What types of hair colour are out there? These are just a few questions anyone would have before colouring their hair for the first time. Join me;as I help you navigate the massive, and often confusing world of hair colour. Know your options, know your hair, own your vision. This article will help prepare you to be your best advocate.

When you are ready to consider enhancing your hair style. An important first step is to own your vision, your expected results. Allow me to define a hair vision. A hair vision is a clear target. A clear vision of end results. I use target as a metaphor for vision,so that just like a target, you can gauge, where and what your expectations are. Hair colour is not an exact science. Hair colour is based on colorology, and that is why it is so important to know your options.

When drafting your hair vision having knowledge about the service offerings and product options will help you shape your final vision. Have you asked your self if you will colour your own hair or head to the salon? Where you plan to enhance your hair style will affect the product types available to you.

There are tons of hair colour product options. The brand list is at least a mile long. The following is a list of hair colour types you might use: permanent colour, semi permanent colour, demi permanent, temporary, lightner,or box color. Whether you will need to apply a combination of these products or just one, all depends on your desired results. Here is a list of service type options these products enable: Highlights, Lowlights, and all over colour. All of these services can be applied by various techniques such as: baliage, foiling, caps, baths,or partial and all over applications. Having a vision will help you or your stylist know what products, services, and techniques apply to you.

Once you have a feel for what you want your hair vision to be, and how your going to do it; you’ll need to choose products. Knowing your hair will have a huge impact on all areas of your hair vision. If you choose to head to a hair salon, your stylist will do this for you in a consultation. However you can help your self by knowing the following: your past service history if any, any allergies you might have, your hair texture and porosity. Wether at home or at the salon, to prevent any shocking results or allergic reactions a porosity and patch test need to be preformed.

Preparing for hair colour is intense, but it is worth the effort. Own your vision, knowing your options, and knowing your hair, will set you up for successful and realistic results. Applying these tips will empower you to be your own advocate at the salon or beauty supply store. You and your hair will be glad you spoke up.
