Product Details: Now you can enjoy the rejuvenating spa and dermatologist experiences at home – at a fraction of the cost. This Professional Skin Care System by ToiletTree Products is an advanced daily cleansing tool that helps polish away dull skin and gently exfoliates away impurities that traditional cleansing leaves behind. The result? Wonderfully cleaner, softer, radiant looking skin.
The Professional Skin Care System, along with a daily cleaning regimen, helps assist the following:
- Stimulates skin renewal.
- Improves overall skin clarity and appearance.
- Removes dead skin cells to expose healthier-looking skin.
- Energizes skin and leaves it sooth, soft and radiant.
- Cleans deep to help remove stubborn makeup.
- Enhances absorption of moisturizers.
The Professional Skin Care System by ToiletTree Products includes 2 face exfoliaters (1 soft for sensitive skin types & 1 medium for normal skin types), 1 body exfoliater and 1 pumice sphere. Available in pink, blue, and grey. Refills are also available.
Personal Experiences: I received my Professional Skin Care System very quickly. It was damaged by the post office in transit… the package nearly disintegrated by moisture… so I was concerned that the system would be damaged before I even had a chance to try it. Luckily, it’s water proof! I was able to pop in the batteries (it takes 2 AA; included) and try it out right away.
The system comes with two brushes for the face. One of them accommodates more sensitive skin while the other is for normal skin. I actually used the softer brush for a gentle cleanse in the morning and the firmer brush for washing away the day every evening. It improved upon the already great results I was getting using the Sibu products I had reviewed earlier. My skin was instantly softer after just the first use. The massaging action of the rotating brush left my face feeling pleasantly tingly afterward. It has left my skin looking brighter and healthier. I have also seen a great improvement on the size of the pores in the area around my nose… my definite problem spot.
There is a large round brush for use on the body. The waterproof unit can be taken in the shower and the benefits of the rotating brush can be used all over your body. I found the use of the larger body brush a bit cumbersome and the effects were not much different than what I get from my shower pouf. It remains to be seen if the massaging effect provides the same benefits to my body as it did to my face.
The pumice head was probably my favorite. I used it immediately following each shower. Since working in a factory and stuffing my feet into uncomfortable steel-toe boots for 8-12 hours a day, my feet have been gross. There’s just no other word for it. I have used pumice stones before with minimal success, but the rotating action made this considerably more effective. Even on areas I thought were not all that bad, the pumice took layers of dead skin off quickly and easily… leaving behind healthy, soft skin. My heels have not looked this great in years!
I have used other similar units for my facial skin in the past, but they didn’t allow for the changing of the heads. You were stuck with a one-size-fits-all brush and, when it needed replaced, the entire unit had to go in the trash. ToiletTree sells replacement heads. They snap on and off easily, but remain securely in place when in use.
I still use the face brushed daily and the pumice stone several times a week. I rarely use the body brush. When I do, it is mainly as a great buffer for my fingers and toes. It is well worth its $59.95 price tag. (You can get it on sale now for just $34.95.) The replacement heads sell for $12.95 for a package of two. (They are also on sale right now for just $9.95.) I will definitely continue to use this system for a long time to come!
Pros: Improves skin appearance. Cleans gently, but effectively. Replaceable heads. Reasonably priced compared to similar units. Waterproof and sturdy.
Cons: Replacing heads could get costly. I found using the body brush cumbersome.
Update on Mar. 4, 2015: It has now been exactly two years since I first reviewed this product and I still use it every day… twice a day. I start every day with the medium brush and end each day with the softer brush. It works well with whatever cleanser I am currently sampling. I still don’t use the body brush. Many other people that have reviewed this system swear by it, but I guess I’m a die-hard pouf fan. I need to get better about keeping up with the pumice. I let it go a bit in the winter, but that’s probably the time when I should most be using it to keep my heels sandal ready for summer!
I haven’t needed to replace the brush heads nearly as often as I expected. I replace them every two to three months for hygienic reasons and not because they are worn out. The price has been $9.95 for a set of two brushes every time I’ve gone to buy some. I’ve also recently noticed they added a carrying case for the unit that includes a full set of replacement heads. Guess what just got added to my wish list!
I have only had to replace the batteries twice in the past two years, so I would say that the Professional Skin Care System is easy on the batteries!
Due to my continued love of this product and its longevity, I’m updating my rating from a 4-star to a 5-star!
