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.
