Confession: I can be overly skeptical when it comes to popular skincare products—especially when they sound a bit too good to be true. Yes, I know there’s a good chance that some of these products live up to the hype, but even so, I’m way too protective of my skin to risk trying something that could actually worsen my breakouts.
This is why I tend to be dismissive of most beauty product ads, but I admit, when I stumbled upon Fancii’s Cora 7 Skin Care Kit ($30), my curiosity actually outweighed my skepticism.
After seeing that it had so many five-star ratings on Amazon, I carefully read through the product’s details and did a deep-dive into countless customer reviews. And before I knew it, I was convinced that my oily, acne-prone skin could benefit from this 7-in-1 exfoliating kit.
What is it, exactly? More or less a mini spa in a box. The product, which comes in three colors (green, dove and blush), includes a cordless and water-resistant electric brush with six unique brush heads. There’s a small face brush for daily cleansing, a body brush for deep scrubbing, a foam brush for exfoliation, a silicone face brush for sensitive skin, a pumice stone to remove dead skin cells and a massage brush to boost circulation. Plus, there’s the detachable handle for harder to reach areas and a travel pouch.
Overall, I was impressed with this tool, although I must admit that I struggled to stick with the full regimen for more than a week. I went from using four different brushes in my daily skin care routine to using just two semi-weekly. But even then, I continued to see a slight improvement after using the Cora 7 on my own schedule for a few weeks (the pic on the right was taken two months after I started using it).
