The product

If you’re over the mountain of skin care products marketed for oily skin, and finding loose sheets of blotting paper lying in the bottom of your handbag, you’re going to love this duo.

The Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand and the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil Absorber have been designed with oily and combination skin in mind. Their purpose? Well, the Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand helps to effectively cleanse skin of oil, dirt, makeup and dead skin, while the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil Absorber can be used to absorb oil on the face (yep, even when you’re wearing makeup) to help minimise shine throughout the day.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about these handy skin tools. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand and the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil Absorber to a panel of women aged 18 to 45 with oily or combination skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand and the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil Absorber.

They liked how hygienic they were: Members really liked how hygienic both of the products were, with many saying they were easy to clean. Bonus: reviewers loved the fact they could reuse the products, therefore cutting down on waste in their routines. 

They effectively minimised the appearance of shine: The reviewers on this trial all identify as having combination or oily skin, so they were especially happy to receive products that helped to diminish the appearance of shine throughout the day. 

They’re easy to transport: A number of Review Crew® members mentioned that they really appreciated how lightweight and small the cleansing wand and volcanic roller were. They were able to transport both items in their makeup bags or handbags without too much fuss.

The verdict

“Loved [the Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand]! I’m always very dubious of using brushes (including silicone) on my face as I am scared of bacteria growing but this wand was not only very hygienic but convenient and thoroughly removed all makeup and dead skin from my face. Enjoyed how portable and nifty the product is as well. Will continue using this as opposed to foreo and Clarisonics as it is a lot more affordable and clean. Would definitely recommend it to my friends and family, especially those who have a more simple skincare routine.”

“[The Manicare Precision Cleansing Wand] is absolutely amazing! First try and it does wonders on my skin! Immediately, my skin feels smoother and cleaner and overall feels silky to touch! I was a little skeptical at first as I wasn't sure whether it would work or not but so pleased that I tried it because it’s not only amazing but it’s also multi-purpose! What more could you want! If i was to add a little minor negative feedback, it would be that it requires some sort of a hook/holder to hang it somewhere in the bathroom! Other than that, highly recommended!”

“I didn't know I needed [the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil] until I used it for the first time! I used to reapply powder foundation in the middle of the day to combat my oily skin but this is such a better alternative that works just as well! Now I save on makeup which is a massive plus. I also like how it comes with a spare roller. I only use the ball once, replace it with the spare and then clean them both after 2 days. My only issue was struggling to find somewhere to put the spare ball! But I put it into a little jewelry pouch and found this is super easy. Couldn't recommend more for oily skin!”

“Though I didn't have high hopes initially, [the Manicare Volcanic Stone Roller Oil Absorber] has really stunned me! It really does work like magic on your skin to absorb oil. While I generally have normal skin, sometimes during the day my skin does become a little shiny and oily especially if I am wearing makeup. This product did not ruin any makeup and absorbed the oil effortlessly. Although it looks chunky, it is easy to use and carry as well. Best part is that you also receive an extra stone as part of the packaging.”
