Like a few others, I bought this after wanting to try a cleansing brush without shelling out tons for the Clarisonic. I didn't bother to use the shine minimizing cleanser, but used it with my existing facial cleanser. The brush vibrates instead of spins, and even after taking off my makeup and then cleaning you realize how much this little brush still gets out of your pores! You need to clean the little rubber bristles after each use (I use just soap and water and swirl it around in my palm) so you don't put the gunk back into your skin next time you use it.
I've been using it for a few days now twice a day and with a gentle hand, it has worked really well for me. My pores seem smaller and my skin is definitely smoother. I notice it especially when I look at my makeup at the end of the day and it's still smooth and not settled into my pores as much. Also the little white bumps around my nose and under my eyes have diminished.
i like the electric brush idea, it really deep cleans, i use it 1-2 times a week. i see a difference i. vibrancy of my skin as it does well in brightening uo my complexion. but it does have product buildup as someone said before, you can really tell especially after using bb cream/foundation. you can try to wash it with makeup brush cleaner or shampoo, but the color might stay there. id rather stick to neutrogena wave since u can switch the pads to keep bacteria away
THROW THIS AWAY NOW! this thing harbors acne causing bacteria in it's brissles. I couldn't figure out why I was breaking out so bad. If you look deep into the brissles you can see built up product. Once I stopped using this my acne cleared.
I really enjoy using this product i really like how i can feel it deeeeep cleansing my pores i dont use this with the matching cleanser but i have tried it a few times with the mini one it comes with and i like it alot but i need a more heavy duty cleanser for acne. I also really like the triangulare shape because it helps me reach into places that contour my face and i really like that it just vibrates and not spins because im scared that the spin brushes will give me wrinkels but thats not exactly a scientific fact but i would rather be safe then sorry!
i really like this product i cant live without it! i dont recomend it to people with sensitive skin because it may irritate it but i recomend it to anyone else!
I really wanted to love this product. We all think if a face cleanser lathers up that it's getting all the bacteria and acne causing agents to go away and the power bristle wand made me think I would be getting a deep in clean. WRONG. I tried this product for 2 weeks and the first couple days I loved it, but after those first couple days, it made my acne worse!!! I decided to talk to my pharmacist about it and she said the worst thing you can do if you're trying to get rid of acne or keep acne away is using a foaming/lathering cleanser. It the cleanser foams/lathers it's taking away all of your natural skin barrier making it easier for bacteria and acne causing agents to creep in. Also, the power bristle brush that we all think is working magic and giving us a deep clean- It's creating little scratches in our skin, making it even easier for bacteria and acne to begin. If your suffering from mild acne like I was, or any type of acne, do not use this! Save your money and talk to a pharmacist because they know what their talking about and can help you find something that will work for your skin problems. I got Spectro Jel and it seriously is my holy grail cleanser.
I kept reading so many great reviews on this and decided to get it even though it was 14 or 15 dollars. Spendy in my opinion. It worked nice the first few times then started going REALLY slow. So I changed the battery which expired last year and I just bought it. The battery barely helped its still really slow and I have to keep my hand on the on button when I wash my hand gets tired! I still use it but wouldn't get again.
I don't know what everyone is talking about I love this!! It's helped so much for my oily skin. I only use it in the mornings to keep my oil at bay through the day and it really helps, but not too the point it's over drying. I'm about to finish the small tube of cleanser it comes with and I'm definitely going to purchase the larger bottle, can't get enough.
I bought this product because I've always had dirt and minimal oil stuck in my pores so I was hoping this would help, but nope. I used it before bed and when I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom my face was so oily that it felt like I had been outside in 100 degree heat all day. I'm so disappointed.
The brush itself is great, if you're looking for a knockoff sort of Clarisonic product. The cleanser itself made my breakout with little bumps all over my t-zone, as soon as i stopped using it my skin went back to normal. Dissapointed because I was really excited about the shine minimizing feature and the clay! Oh well, I say give it a go, but if you're breaking out, it's the product.
Honestly, I originally bought this product because I had never had a face cleansing brush before. When I used it the first time it did leave the skin around my nose and lips pretty raw. I tried it again the next night & fell in love. You definitely need to use a light hand with this brush. If you don't I can see where you would think that it's too harsh.
All in all, it's a pretty great product. I have acne prone skin so sometimes I use a different cleanser with it. But the cleanser is great as well. I've been pretty sick the past few days & when I finally do get up the energy to get out of bed and wash my face. I use the brush and the cleanser and I feel loads better.
Definitely going to repurchase. (:
