Epione Clear Touch Matrix Review and Giveaway



When the Epione ClearTouch Matrix showed up at my door I was impressed just by the box. Even the packaging looks like it came directly from a spa. The ClearTouch Matrix is a spinning facial brush. The circular motion helps remove your makeup as well as daily impurities like oil and dirt. The massaging motion is supposed to help with the appearance of fine lines as well. In addition to the facial brush and sponge, there is also a body brush and a pumice stone to help keep your feet smooth.

I was most excited about the pumice stone. I have terribly dry and calloused feet because I have my shoes off whenever possible. In the summertime I pay more attention to how they look because I am usually in sandals or flip-flops when I am in public, but in the wintertime I am much lazier. If I don't take a pumice stone to my feet every day, they look pretty terrible. I actually took a picture but decided to spare you. The spinning action really takes all of the work out of scrubbing with the pumice stone. I just used soap and water and that wasn't enough to completely eliminate the thick calluses on my heels, but it did a beautiful job on the rest of my foot. If I were to start using the pumice attachment on my feet right after a pedicure I have no doubt it would help maintain pretty, soft feet with a lot less effort than my current routine. I look forward to using it more in the summertime, when my heels are visible to the general public.

I am notoriously lazy about my face washing routine and don't worry as much as some women about fine lines, but I was surprised by how much I loved the facial brush. Epione offers skincare products to use with the brush, but I used my regular facial cleanser. Honestly my face felt cleaner. I can't say after just a few days of use if the massaging will help with the appearance of fine lines, but it felt amazing. I felt like I had just had a really great facial where they massage your face and you try not to fall asleep on the table. That feeling alone will make me more prone to washing my face day and night, something I rarely do now.

The Epione is battery operated and waterproof, so you can take it into the shower with you to use the body attachment. It is great for exfoliating dry skin in the winter and will come in handy this summer when I have layers of sunscreen to wash off every day. And again, it just makes your skin feel massaged and clean. It feels pretty fabulous.

  1. Ooh!! This looks awesome! I love that it's a pumice stone too! I'm pretty bad about cleaning my face at night but in the morning, I usually wash my face twice...once with a make up remover cleanser followed by either a scrub or an acne face wash. Then I'll use an astringent toner and my clinique facial lotion. Wow..that sounds pretty high maintenance when I think about it.

  2. I really need get better about cleansing my face every day. Lately, it's been a quick dash of toner and moisturizer.

  3. I don't do anything special when it comes to cleansing my face. I just use a microdermabrasion cloth and water, followed by moisturizer.

  4. I wash my face with a mild cleanser morning and night, followed by some lotion. Nothing too complicated there!

  6. I wash my face every morning and night with some cleanser I bought from Walmart that I love. I use a toner by Burts Bees. Then my daily moisturizer is a tinted one with SPF by Lucrece. Then at night I wash my face, use toner, use Mary Kay eye cream, and Burt's Bees night cream.

  7. My habits suck! What more can I say. I used to take better care of my face. And my feet which are now horrid beyond belief. Now, what with raising 2 teen grandkids, and being the full time care giver to hubby who had a stroke in September, my regimne is standing under the shower, wash my face with bar soap, and slater on Oil of Olay after....That pumice looks over the top awesome. Would love to win!

  12. I wash my face morning and night, but alternate between Clean and Clear facial scrub, the premoistened facial wipes, and toner on a cotton ball - usually what's on sale...but I am trying to get more consistent. This brush would be great!

  15. I'm always good at washing my face in the morning- cleanser and moisturizer but my nightime routine needs improvement!!!

  16. So I'm not normally one to get into crazy beauty routines...I'm just too lazy. But this sounds easy, and so great! I'd LOVE to try this out and tell everyone how wonderful it is!

  17. I mainly use the oil cleansing method, but the exfoliating with this thing would be great! The pumice stone would be wonderful, too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wish I had a skin care routine. Right now it consists of using baby wipes to remove sugary kiss residue, and if I'm lucky then a quick wash with my Mary Kay velocity face wash in the evening. I would probably use the pumice stone more, but the face bruch just may inspire me to take better care of my skin!

  19. My facial cleansing habits - mild cleanser and that's about it.

  30. I'm not the best at cleaning my face - usually just in the morning in the shower. I do swipe toner and moisturizer on each day as well. I buy face masks but don't use them as often as I would like. One reason is time and the other - don't tell anyone I told you - but my super manly husband steals them.

  36. I wash my face at night and moisturize with an aveda moisturizer - but it could definitely do with a littl more attention. Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. I have horribly dry skin, obviously worse in the winter, but throughout the year I get painful dry patches on my cheeks that I haven't found a cure for. I went to a dermatologist and he suggested a facewash I've already tried and a moisturizer that's hundreds of dollars for a small bottle. I would love the opportunity to try this and see if it works on my skin!

  41. I am turning 32 this year and for the first 30 years… I did nothing. I was never a girly girl so I have a lot of catching up to do. Now I have a few cleansers, moisturizers, and toners. ^^ I am moving on up in the world :P If I win, I will be giving one to my mom for getting on to me for not using skin care products after getting wind burnt. I have learned my lesson. ^^

  42. My facial cleansing habits include washing my face every morning and night. I just use my hands and whatever cleanser I found on sale. I'm over 40 now {yikes!} and can see it in my skin. I really need to bring something new into my routine to keep my skin young and healthy! Thanks for the chance!

  43. I really need to change my face cleansing regimen. I only use oatmeal soap and water to clean my face. But I would love to try Epione.
