I have been using Clinique products for over 8 years now, and they have become one of my favourite makeup and product brands. So when they launched their Sonic Purifying Cleansing Brush, I decided to get it and try it out!
I have never used any other kind of facial cleansing brush, so I do not have anything to compare it to, however I really love this cleansing brush.
How I use it: For over a month, every morning and night I cleanse my face with this cleansing brush for a little over a minute. The most important step is to have a cleansed face before you use this cleansing brush, especially making sure all eye makeup is removed. I think of using this brush to remove anything that gets left behind. This brush feels amazing on my skin, it is almost energizing! The white bristles are super soft and meant for your cheeks and the green bristles are meant to clean pores on the forehead, nose and chin. Some improvements I’ve noticed is the reduction of blackheads on my nose, also this brush gently removes flakes and gives my skin a healthy look.
Benefits: After washing my face with this cleansing brush, my skin feels so soft and clean. I’ve noticed that it also really helps any product absorb and work its wonders so much better as well. My skin glows now! The brush size is perfect to be able to cleanse the entire face. The brush is made so you can set it down flat and it won’t roll around! I absolutely love how the whole brush is waterproof, and I can take it into the shower! I find it really helpful that it only vibrates for 30 seconds, then stops. This way I can ensure I am not using it for too long and if it accidentally gets turned on it will not stay on and drain its battery!
Keep in Mind: For the first time using this brush, start with only using it for 30 seconds then work up to a minute. For the first week using this brush, I got a few tiny pimples on my face and my face got really dry. This is because before I only washed my face with my hands, and my face was adjusting to using the brush. Now my skin is used to the brush, and the brush actually really helps with clearing topical acne!
Maintenance: This brush is really easy to keep clean, after every use I remove the brush head and run it under water with a bit of mild tea tree soap and wipe it off and let the bristles air dry in the charging stand.
Price: The price of this product is fair, and it is a lot cheaper than other similar products on the market. However the quality and simplicity of this product really impress me. Replacement brush heads are also very affordable!
Along with the brush, I received a cute makeup bag with Clinique’s 3 Step Skin Care System, which I love using!
