PSA: There are now brushes that help you apply your skin care products

Next Generation Skin Care Brushes

They’re like makeup brushes, but for skin care

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / October 07 2019

While we’re all well-acquainted with makeup brushes, have you ever heard of skin care brushes used specifically for applying your serums, moisturisers and oils? Because they’re a thing and we had no idea until now.

American brand Anisa Beauty recently released an entire range of next-gen skin care tools, designed to optimise your skin care routine so you get the most of your skin care products.

And they’re everything we never knew we needed.

There’s a Detail Treatment Brush designed for application of treatment oils and acids; a Spot Treatment Brush for those ‘on the spot’ application needs (think acne treatments etc.); a gentle Eye Treatment Brush designed for the delicate application of eye gels, creams and serums; and an All Over Treatment Brush for facial serums, oils, retinol and moisturiser application.

Yep, there’s literally a brush for every step of your skin care routine.

Some of the brushes even come with a little built-in silicone reservoir - you basically drop, pump or squeeze the recommended dosage of your product into the reservoir so you use the perfect amount of product every time- no more, no less. You then go ahead and apply the skin care formula by pressing or massaging the brush into your skin. Every brush is also PETA Certified Cruelty-Free and sustainably made.

Check them out below:

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably wondering if youreallyneed skin care brushes when you have perfectly good digits on the ends of your hands that can do the same thing, for free. In all honestly, skin care brushes aren’t wildly necessary, but hey - we’re never one to back down from a new beauty trend (hello, beauty fridges!).
