A few years ago, cleansing brushes became an instant must-have for people on a quest for beyond-perfect skin. These types of tools offers what our fingertips cannot: a deep, powerful cleanse that removes more grease, grime, and makeup than usual. A modern miracle, basically. And if technology can revolutionize our beauty regimen, we’re all for it! The only downside is that most miracles don’t come cheap. The Beautique Spider Puff Cleanser is an alternative to pricy cleansing brushes—or so we were told when it was messengered over to the BeautyMNL office. It’s a facial puff mounted on a tube of cleansing solution, which you squeeze to saturate the puff. Considering how traditional face brushes can go up to high thousands, this one is pretty affordable at P1,299 a pop!
Better still, it boasts of a whopping seven functions—which, if accurate, would basically allow this one tool to rule out your entire skincare regimen. Observe: it supposedly removes makeup, cleanses the skin (so that’s your double-cleansing routine all done), and exfoliates dead cells while moisturizing the face. It also helps brighten your tone (attention, whitening lovers), contains anti-aging properties to fight the signs of passing time, and protects your skin against environmental aggressors. Whut.

Ever since I started using skincare, my fingers are the only tools I’ve used—but as a beauty junkie, I was instantly curious about the benefits of an all-in-one tool. Would this spell the difference between good skin and great skin? We shall see. Scroll down to see me test-drive this baby in GIFs!

STEP 1: TWIST COUNTERCLOCKWISE.

Once you pluck off the cap, twist the tube counterclockwise until you hear a satisfying click.

STEP 2: WET THE PUFF.

Saturate the magenta-pink puff with water.

STEP 3: SQUEEZE OUT THE PRODUCT.

To dispense the solution, squeeze the tube until small bubbles permeate the puff.

STEP 4: CLEANSE SKIN.

Dampen your face with a little water. Then press the puff against your skin and massage the cleanser in using upward, circular motions. Squeeze out more product as need.

STEP 5: RINSE OFF PRODUCT.

After cleansing, wash your face with water and pat dry.

STEP 6: TWIST CLOCKWISE.

Wet the puff under running water, then wait for it to dry. This time, twist the tube clockwise before putting the cap back on.

THE VERDICT


Well, that was easy! My skin felt silken to the touch after this demo. More often than not, people associate the taut, squeaky-clean feeling to well-cleansed skin, but what this really indicates is that you’ve been stripped of your natural moisture. In my one-time experience, the Spider Puff Cleanser dissolved all traces of dirt, oil, and day-old makeup without that tight, dry, overly “stretched” sensation.
Upon closer inspection, my pores were also visibly smaller. I also seemed to have this subtle glow, as though my skin had just been polished! I’m not sure if my eyes were just playing tricks on me, but I felt kind of like I got a facial so I’m just going to go with it.

In short, a cleansing tool can make a difference—you just have to use it often enough to see sustained results. I don’t know if this will replace my entire beauty routine, but if you’re looking to elevate yours without breaking the bank, consider this quirky puff!
