MAXCLINIC CIRMAGE Lifting Stick Review

Last week, I have reviewed the MIRACLINIC Ampoule Dressing and Contouring Object by MAXCLINIC. Today, I'm reviewing another product from the brand called the CIRMAGE Lifting Stick.

It is a unique product that aims to diminish and prevent wrinkles, brighten and whiten the skin, improve skin elasticity, improve blood circulation and lift skin. The lifting stick is inspired by precise meridian lifting techniques which is basically facial acupressure. The form of the Lifting Stick is based off the Gua Sha Massage Instrument which focuses on activating pressure points of the face and neck to improve blood circulation thus reactivating protein and collagen synthesis and helps retain the skin's elasticity for a smoother and tighter skin.

This product is so concentrated that one CIRMAGE Lifting Stick is equivalent to 7 CIRMAGE Lifting Creams!

How to Use:
1.Using side B(or C) lift from the bottom of your neck to the chin 2~3 times and press the back of 
your ears
2.Using side B(or C) lift the fatty part of your chin to your ears 1~2 times
3.Using side B(or C) lift the facial skin from the chin to your temples 1~2 times
4.Using side B(or C) lift from the corner of your lips to the temples 1~2 times
5.Using side B(or C) lift from the side of your nose to the temples 1~2 times
6.Using a corner of side A to massage your eye brows from the inner corners, outwards, 1~2 times.
7.Using side B(or C) firm up the baggy area under your eyes from the inner corner of your eyes to the outer corner, 1~2 times
8.Use side A to lift up the skin on your forehead from the eyebrows to the hairline.
9.Using side A glide along the your hairline, starting from the center, down to temples and gently 
press your temples for as the last step of your massage.

I have tried out this product for a good, two weeks and I can say there are barely any visible results that I can see. A research was made by the KC Skin Research Center and there were individual results that were yielded after 2-4 weeks of use. Improvement of blood circulation was noted and reduction of facial swelling.

I really love this concept of facial acupressure and massage. I'm currently 26 years old right now and I feel like it's time for me to really take care of my skin and prevent all the wrinkles. I have written several blog posts and reviews about anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products and I've always said that I was not really concerned about wrinkles then. Recently, prior to receiving this lifting stick, I have noticed wrinkles on my forehead which is due to the many facial expressions that I make. My forehead is filled with lines and although I don't think it's ugly and is quite natural as we get older, I would like to continue looking younger and take steps to take care of my skin so that I age gracefully while still looking great. 

This lifting stick is fairly easy to use. You really don't have to know A, B and C sides, you can just try and fit the contours of your face to the curves of the stick and then roll it out for a good massage. There's no right or wrong thing in using this product. If there is one thing I would like to mention, it's the formula of the stick. It is hard and reminds me of a dried out glue stick. You need a good amount of strength to drag the stick on your face. Although this might be good to do pressure stimulation, I feel like they could do better by loosening up the product a little bit so that it would be easier for use when dragging along the contours of your face. One application and I can definitely feel the tightening effect of the product on my face. 

I'm 50/50 on this product because of the dry formula that I just mentioned above. It would be nicer if it was creamier that way I wouldn't find it hard to move it along my face. On the other hand, I really love the facial massage and acupressure and the overall concept of this product. 

What do you think about this product? Do you think you'll give the MAXCLINIC CIRMAGE Lifting Stick a go?

*This product was sent to me for review but as always, my reviews are honest and based on my own opinions and experience.
