Every year, we try to give you something extra special around the new year. This year, we thought it’d be fun to highlight something that will make your skin care routine more sensory experience, while also increasing the effectiveness of our products. So we'd like to introduce to you, our signature Lotus Wood Exfoliating Brush.
What is a Face Brush Used for?
Face brushes have soft bristles and are used to clean your skin. It’s different from dry brushing, which is done all over on, obviously, dry skin.
Over the past few years, Clarisonic brushes have become quite popular. These brushes vibrate and help you get a deep clean when you wash your face. A few of us around the office have used them, and we like them. But you can get a similar (if not the same) effect from a simple and more eco-friendly face brush. Clarisonic brushes have to be charged, and are also pretty expensive.
Face brushing lightly exfoliates your skin and helps you really massage your cleanser in, giving your pores a thorough clean. They’re also helpful for rinsing off facial masks, like our Coconut Honey Mask.

How to Use a Face Brush
So how to use an exfoliating brush? It’s simple. You can pump your organic cleanser directly onto your face brush, add a little bit of water, then use it to massage the product into your skin. Alternatively, you can put the product onto your skin instead of directly onto the brush.
Instead of your fingers, use the soft bristles of the brush to clean your pores. Then rinse off your cleanser as normal.
With some moisturizing face masks, like our Coconut Honey Mask and Purifying Mud Mask, a face brush can be helpful for removing it. Once the mask has done its duties, use the face brush to gently slough it off.
Our Signature Face Brush
The nylon bristles on our face brushes are gentle as well as cruelty-free. Over time, as you use your brush, you'll notice that the bristles will get even softer.
The handle is bamboo, which is not only beautiful but very fast-growing, making it a sustainable choice.
These brushes are a limited special gift for the holidays! Unfortunately, we will not be selling them on our site.
How to Clean Your Face Brush
Each time you use your face brush, you’ll want to wash it with hot water. Once or twice a week, you can clean it with a stronger cleaning solution of your choice.
