Ever wondered why your current skincare regime is good but not quite as good as the labels say that it should be? Or have you ever wondered why your trusty favourite moisturisers and serums work really well but you can’t help feeling that they’re just shy of reaching that top level performance? Then the Panasonic 3 in 1 Facial Enhancer from Panasonic can help without you needing to buy all new products for your regime…
We’ve all got a bathroom shelf full of skincare products haven’t we? And if you’re anything like me then you’ve also got drawers full of face masks, extra bits and pieces and those products you’ve tried but not really connected with and will maybe revisit one day. And this skincare obsession only grows as you get older with the introduction of things like fine lines and wrinkles. When you reach the age where you notice signs of ageing on your skin, skincare products become more of an investment and not just a daily nicety. Basically as you get older, skincare becomes essential. And that’s exactly the stage of life I’m now at.
I’m only 31 but I’ve noticed fine lines around my eyes and I’ve always had very prominent lines on my forehead which really bug me and make me feel self conscious. So I’ve become a lot more invested in my skincare regime in recent years – my skin is what’s coming with me into older age after all. Along the way I’ve discovered some great skincare products – both budget friendly version and premium brands. It’s been a real journey of discovery and something I’ve tried recently from Panasonic has made me look at my daily products differently, in a really positive way.
The Panasonic 3 in 1 Facial Enhancer is a tool for those of us who truly believe in the benefits of a good skincare regime. While I can’t get to a spa daily, weekly or sometimes even monthly, the Facial Enhancer has allowed me to try out an increased performance level regime at home. It works to increase the way your current skincare products perform – so if you’ve got some great bits on your shelf, now is the time to get them out and really put them through their paces!
The way the Facial Enhancer works is in three parts, but effectively it encourages your products to distribute into the skin more deeply and precisely. Which means you can expect to see better results from the products you use as it encourages skin into a state of optimum absorbancey and uses methods that apply them better than the norm. And while it’s a considered purchase for sure, it’s one of those tools that’s going to take your skincare to the next level and for me that’s an investment worth making.
The three modes of the Panasonic 3 in 1 Facial Enhancer are as follows:
This first stage of using the device is designed to remove traces of all build up on the skin – think of it as the initial ‘cleaning’ part of the process. I used an everyday toner on a cotton pad that is put in place at the head of the device. This then heats up to a warm temperature (maximum 43 degrees) and the heat combined with the toner draws out more from the pores. The result is that my usual toning skincare step feels a lot more thorough and my skin feels a lot cleaner and clearer. It’s a really nice way to thoroughly clear the skin and Panasonic say you can remove 60% more dirt and build up using the Facial Enhancer, which doesn’t surprise me now I’ve tried it and felt how clean my skin feels.
This is my favourite use of the device. I use this with my serums and sometimes a night cream, but usually a good hydrating serum is my preferred. Applied to the skin, you glide the device over and it uses and electrical flow that carries moisture deeper into the skin. Using a firm pressure and applying in upward motions, the flow penetrates the pores and the skincare you’re using then gets carried much deeper down. As a result you’ll notice better results, improved hydration levels and if you use targeted skincare you should see it work even better than before. I noticed that my skin felt a lot more hydrated after using my serums and night moisturisers with this. And this is where it can really help combat wrinkles and lines by carrying your products deeper within them to plump and fill them.
The most relaxing stage of using the device is after using all the products, you cool the settings and the titanium head gets very cold. You then glide over the skin and the cool temperate closes the pores and tightens the skin which locks in the skincare products you’ve applied. I find the sensation really relaxing and luxurious – I’m a sucker for cooling stages in skincare and like to keep face masks etc in the fridge, so this is a really nice part of my regime. I particularly find this stage useful around my eyes where I can get dark bags and look puffy when I’m tired and the cooling sensation helps to depuff the area.
Altogether using the device is only a slightly extended amount of time on your skincare, so for that I like it a lot. It doesn’t add a huge amount of time which is good because my skincare is the last thing I do at night and I usually just want to jump straight into bed! But the extra few minutes each time is worthwhile because of how much better your skincare products work for you. It’s like getting your proper moneys worth from all those expensive products you’ve purchased over the years. I’ve found that even my favourites had room to work better when I used the Facial Enhancer and ultimately that’s all I want from my skincare.
So while the Panasonic 3 in 1 Facial Enhancer is absolutely a considered purchase it’s something I’d recommend if you take your skincare seriously. I’m really excited to see how much more beneficial this can be with long term use and I have high hopes for seeing my skin quality increase overall as my moisturisers penetrate the skin much deeper down, increase hydration levels and plump my fine lines a little more.
