A few months ago, I received an email from Klout that I was eligible for the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush as a perk. I have been using the Clarisonic Mia for a couple of years and I was very curious how this compared. Given the mass popularity of the Clarisonic, I felt it would be impossible to not compare the two.
The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush claims that it works with your cleanser to "create the greatest skin ever" (according to the website).
The packaging comes with the system, a standard brush head and a charger. The charger is a stand up and the charge lasts forever. I think I've only charged it once since I've had it.
There's only one brush head available and Clinique claims it's for all skin types. The green part is to be used on "hard to reach" places like your nose or chin. You just use the tip to cleanse those areas. The movement of the brush is up and down. The cycle lasts 30 seconds. If you want to build up to a minute (which is what Clinque recommends) you just press the button again after your 30 is up.
Out of the Clarisonic alternatives I have tried, I will say Clinique's is the best available. Especially if you find the Clarisonic hard on your skin. This one is far more gentle.
Since I have a ton of Blackheads, I found this wasn't nearly as effective on them. You can read my full Clarisonic review here, to see my results. I did think it was fantastic for exfoliation, removing dead skin and makeup, though. If you're acne prone, a good cleaning brush really can help your woes.
I now use this in the shower in the AM as an exfoliator. I still use the Clarisonic in the evening, as I need to keep blackheads at bay. I'm really on the fence about this and a lot of it has to do with the fact that it is 90 bucks and doesn't work quite as well as the Clarisonic.
A decent cleaning brush. Gentle on skin. If you're going to spending that much, I recommend forking over the $10 extra for the Clarisonic Mia, though. If you found the Clarisonic too harsh, you may prefer Clinique's version.
Very gentle on skin
Love the 30 second intervals for a quick clean
Charge lasts quite a long time
Cost is a bit high
Doesn't deep clean as well as the Clarisonic; those with lots of blackheads probably won't like this as well
What's your favorite cleansing brush?
