Today we are going to talk about face brushes? You must be asking yourself do you really need a device to clean your face. And the answer to that question is yes and no.
Facial Cleansing Brushes
Many people think that face brushes aren’t necessary for a daily routine but the fact is they provide thorough and deep clean. Depending on the brand, some brushes:
- provide sonic technology for deep clean
- combine both (spin and sonic technology).
Nowadays we are surrounded by pollution and other external environmental factors. Besides that, we women use a lot of makeup. By the end of the day, our skin is screaming for some help.
Using hands to wash your face in some cases can be enough, but if you are struggling with congestion, large pores, blackheads then investing in the facial brush can actually be a good thing.
Best facial cleansing brushes
There are so many facial brushes nowadays on the market. Sometimes it’s too overwhelming to decide which one to choose. The most popular brands on the market are Clarisonic and Foreo.
Clarisonic facial brush (Mia)
Clarisonic provides 6x better clean than hands. It’s waterproof so you can use it under the shower. It comes with different brush heads that have to be replaced every 3 months.
The device comes with charger and a normal brush head. New editions include USB charger.
Since I have mine for a few years it came with a wall adapter.
How to use Clarisonic?
If your skin isn’t too sensitive you can use it twice a day for 1 minute.
Clarisonic Mia Review
Since the beginning of face brushes “revolution” I have tried different brands.
Firstly I started with Clarisonic. Since I have problematic and extremely sensitive skin prone to congestion and pimples I’ve found that Clarisonic was too aggressive.
I’ve used it for a year trying different ways, but unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me.
It caused huge, painful pimples alongside my jaw after every use. I know people say that pimples can be a result of purging phase but that wasn’t the case. So I decided to stop using it and switch to something more suitable for me.
At first, I decided to try foreo “to go “, it was cheap and a good way to test the product before buying a full size.
I was so pleased with the results of “Foreo To Go” that I decided to buy Foreo Luna Mini.
I have to say this was the best investment so far.
Advantages of Foreo luna mini :
- long battery life – one charge lasted me almost 8-9 month
- it gentle
- doesn’t cause breakouts
- prevents blackhead on my problematic areas
- palm-sized and travel-friendly
- resistant to bacteria build up
- doesn’t need brush changes like Clarisonic (no additional investment)
I have to say I’m very pleased with my buy, I would highly recommend it to everyone that has sensitive skin but still wants deep clean.
How to use Foreo Luna Mini
I use it once a day, during my nightime routine, as a part of my second cleanse. I have found that twice a day as the brand recommended was a little too much for my sensitive skin.
You can’t use it with oil or solid balm cleanser or to remove the make up (as you can with Clarisonic).
Foreo Luna Mini what do you get?
In the box, you get the silicone facial brush and USB charger.
