**REVIEW** Etereauty Trave-Sized Facial Cleansing Brush

(This is for those vendors who have been sending me their products unsolicited: I will NOT review your items on Amazon because of that site's most recent review policies. However, because some of you are so persistent, I will post reviews of your product(s) here on the blog. That said, this post is a review of one another of those products.)

So, as always, when I get one of these unsolicited items in the mail to review, I wanted to ignore it.

Then, I kept looking at it on the day when I was going to be doing my weekly facial. Normally, that only involves using a really gentle homemade mask of oatmeal, honey, and coconut oil. I let this mixture sit on my face for about 5 minutes before I wet my fingertips in a bowl of water and massaged everything in, and then I rinse and moisturize.

That's it. Simple. But I noticed that this cleansing tool comes with a silicone brush. It looks soft. I took it out of the case. It is soft. Okay.

So I decided that this would be one of those items I would review here. I still won't post anything on Amazon because that's against the rules. However, here is the product link. Now, let's do this.

  • It is compact enough to tuck into the corner or a suitcase (or even stow in a backpack).
  • With fresh batteries, it's really powerful.
  • The silicone head feels wonderful as a facial massager
  • Easy on-off switch
  • Ergonomic and easy to grip
  • Does require batteries (that are not included)
  • Easy to run down batteries. I think I got full-power use for about an hour and a half's use (spread over a week's time).
  • The pumice is too much, IMO, for use on elbows and knees, and not strong enough for foot calluses or heels.
  • The price (again, IMO) is a bit high. There are too many similar devices with good reviews that are cheaper.
Despite the negatives - which really aren't awful - this is a decent facial device. Even for people who don't travel, it's useful. Having a plug-in option would be awesome.

Thank you, Etereauty, for letting me try this.
