Don't we all crave for silky smooth, healthy glowing skin? Well, the first step to a healthy skin is always a good cleansing routine. A proper face cleansing helps get rid of dead skin cells and unclog pores of dirt or sebum from the skin. Hence, it's important to exfoliate regularly, however, using facial scrub can be a bit harsh for the skin and not to mention, strip your skin of its natural oils.
Luckily I was introduced to the ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber recently. One of the renowned professional beauty brands, ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber is a sleek handheld device that offer safe infusion exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, impurities and get rid of blackheads/whiteheads painlessly. The device also features ultrasonic vibrations to deep clean the skin while prepping it to better absorb serum/essence and EMS massager for lifting and firming, you can literally give yourself a mini facial in the comfort of your home.
The device comes with a carry bag, user manual and USB charging cable. You will need to charge for at least 2 hours before first use. It is available in 3 colours which are pink, white and green.
The spatula is made of durable stainless steel which works as a cleanser to remove impurities and dead skin cells when used in downward direction. Meanwhile, if the spatula is hold flat against the skin, it can helps penetrate skincare deeper into the skin.
There are 4 modes available, Ultrasonic, EMS, Ion+ and Ion-.
It is recommended to use the device 1 to 2 times a day for no more than 15 minutes each time. Also, it's important to note that you will need to wait for at least 6 hours before treating the same part of your face.
First step : Ultrasonic (Daily clean)
Remove your make up. Wet your face and gently glide the spatula in downward motion for about 2-3 minutes to cleanse the skin of dirt and impurities. Keep your skin moist throughout the treatment.
Second step : Ion+ (Exfoliate)
Press the on/off button to switch mode. Make sure your skin is moist, gently glide the spatula from the edge of the nose toward the center and repeat on the other side of the nose to slough away dead skin for deep cleansing and exfoliating. Always ensure your skin wet throughout the treatment to prevent any discomfort.
Third step : Ion- (Deep absorption)
Apply your serum/essence and gently glide the spatula in an upwards motion to maximize skincare absorption.
Fourth step : EMS (Lifting massage)
Hold the ion conducting bar with fingers to form a current loop which will produce EMS micro-current that boost skin regeneration, restore elasticity as well as stimulating collagen production to combat fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer and more lifted skin.
Direction of the Spatula
Wipe the spatula with cotton pad or rinse with water before use. Do not wash it with water directly.
Switch mode by pressing the On/Off button. After using, long press the On/Off button for 3-5 seconds to turn off the device.
Wipe off any liquid or essence remaining on the device. Do not soak the device in water.
Clean the spatula with water or cotton pad and cover with the protective cap when it's dry.
Do not use it around the delicate eyes area and eyelids.
You should not use the device when you're having menstruation period or pregnant.

I've tried using the ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber for about 3 weeks during my PM skincare routine and noticed my skin texture feeling smoother and look clearer than ever. I do experience purging during the first week, which I suppose is pretty common due to the increasing skin cell turnover. However, the following weeks was fine, my skin go back to normal. The device truly works wonders for skin rejuvenation as well as firm and tighten up my skin.
Overall, personally I think the ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber is a great device and gives excellent results. The best part is, I don't have to endure the painful blackheads extraction at the beauty salon anymore. One downside of this device though, is the annoying high frequency sound waves.
The ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber is lightweight, USB rechargeable and travel friendly. It's totally worth investing in the ANLAN Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber to help you achieve that gorgeous, glowing skin you're hoping for! For more information or to purchase, kindly log on www.anlan.co
