I LOVE a good face massage, but what is the best face massager tool out there right now that does it all, because I want efficiency? I think there is something so nice about being able to take some time for yourself and focus on your skin. I mean you don’t have to take hours, we’re talking minutes here. And the reward is truly worth it. I used to just use my hands to massage my face and that works, but there is something so satisfying about having a tool just do it for you. The best face massager has to be my new BFF, yeah thats the name of it. Let’s get to why I love this new tool, how I use it and why it works so well.
If you want to get more acquainted with the specific tools I use for facial reflexology, check out this post where I talk in more detail about why these work.
But for today, I want to chat more about face massage and of course get to what I consider the best face massager. There are lots of tools and options out there to use from Clarisonic to others but they can be pricy and to be honest, I had a Clarisonic for years and didn’t find it as good as this one.
The Best Face Massager:
So what is this tool I am talking about, it is the BFF, or Best Face Friend. I’ve been using it for months and I have to say I was really surprised with how much I loved it. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with this tool but I did and I’ve since told all my friends about it. Not only does it take off your makeup and leave your skin feeling and looking clean and clear, but it truly is the best face massager tool that I’ve used because it does it all.
Why Do You Want to Massage Your Face?
Massages are amazing, right? I desperately need one right now as I feel it in my shoulders and back, and if you’ve ever had a massage you know how awesome they are. Well, they are also amazing for your face too and here is why:
Lymphatic Drainage: So what exactly is your lymphatic system? The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. “Stagnation or blockages in the nodes mess with the filtration process, which increases the amount of toxins in the blood and lymph system. An excess of these fluids can cause acne, increased sebum levels, and blockages in the pores.” Your lymphatic system has no pump, and so it requires and depends on things like exercise, inversion, breathing techniques and massage to keep it flowing. It’s also another reason I suggest dry skin brushing your body as well.
Of course you can book yourself a facial that focuses on lymphatic drainage and face massage. But, you can also use the BFF, which is the best face massager in my opinion. Regular massage with the BFF can help bring blood flow and fresh oxygen to the face due to its sonic vibrations, which is a natural form of anti aging in itself and also help your lymphatic system. I love the ease of which using this tool provides that massage and truly my skin never feels cleaner when I use it.
Puffiness No More: Because you are massaging your face and helping your lymphatic system, you will also help to reduce puffiness around the eyes as well. One of the biggest culprits of puffiness is that your lymphatic systems is not working as optimally as it should. When you take the time to massage your face (with the help of the BFF) you’ll notice a reduction in puffiness as well. In the past, I’ve used an ice roller (which you can read about here) and I use these tools daily (in the morning) as well. As much as I like the ice roller, I don’t find it does as great of a job as the BFF. Although in the morning I do still like to use the ice roller, which you can see pictured below.
Increased blood flow and collagen production: More blood flow equals more collagen production which will improve your skin’s elasticity leaving you with a healthy and natural glow. And I am all about that glow life and collagen.
It Does More than Massage:
Cleans Your Skin: The best thing about the BFF is not only how it massages your face and helps with lymphatic drainage but also how it cleans your skin. When I fail to use it at night, I feel the difference and my skin doesn’t look and feel as good. The tiny bristles really go to work and make your skin glow. There are two sides to the BFF, a smaller side of bristles for sensitive skin and a gentler cleanse. And then there is the larger bristle side for more oily skin. You can also use the tip of the BFF to get into hard to reach areas like the nose. More than just cleaning your skin, it is also able to exfoliate which is something that I find so many people don’t do enough of.
Actually Super Convenient: It’s also a breeze to clean, just a little soap and water as its made up of medical grade silicone that won’t hold on to dirt and bacteria. Plus because it is super small and lightweight it is also perfect fro traveling and it charges in under an hour and one charge lasts 400 uses! Oh and it comes with its own USB charger too.
How to Use the BFF:
I use it at night to really help clean my face and ensure all my makeup and everything else is off. It is a good idea to remove any heavy eye makeup first and then cleanser and use your BFF. I like using an oil cleanser first and then a cream cleanser along with the BFF. You can read more about which cleansers I like and how to double cleanse over here.
In the morning, you can also use it to give your face a massage, here is how I do it:
- Wash and tone your face (read more about toners here).
- Apply your serum, I like using Wildcraft oil with my Antioxidant dew from Kypris (seriously, I think I’ve gone through 3 bottles of this stuff, it is the ONE product I buy over and over again).
- Turn on your BFF and start on your forehead, tracing out the letter “M” back and forth for about 15-20 seconds.
- Use the tip of the BFF to apply pressure under your cheekbones while gently pushing upwards.
- Last, use the BFF to draw down your neck to ensure you are helping to drain your lymphatic system and flush out toxins.
Overall I think the BFF is the best face massager tool that I have tried and it is definitely comparable to others in the same category and in my opinion out performs them.
Right now, you can get 40% off your own BFF which is a pretty amazing deal! Definitely have a look at it and scoop one up at this discounted rate. It also makes a great gift too!
