For those of you who regularly read my blog you will know that I have now become obsessed with skincare – Clinique skincare to be exact – and the newest addition to my skincare regime is Clinique’s Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush. The brush is dermatologically developed and uses sonic movements, with two different bristle types, to really reach those difficult areas and to give your face a thorough clean. This is something we really need in today’s environment which is filled with anti-oxidants, and its particularly essential for those of us who wear a full face of makeup every day.
I have been using this brush for the past month now and am really impressed by it. Before I was using face cloths and just splashing water on my face and while my skin has really improved, this brush has taken it to the next level by really removing every inch of makeup and dirt on my face. What’s more, it has really reduced the redness that I was getting from scrubbing with a face cloth as it is softer and more gentle on the skin.
Clinique recommends that you begin by using the brush for thirty seconds all over the face and gradually building up to one minute twice a day (both morning and evening). I remove my makeup before use and then apply my cleanser and dampen the brush with some warm water before turning it on and gently sweeping it across my face in circular motions across the cheeks and in upwards and downwards movements on the t-zone. You don’t need to apply any pressure when cleansing as the brush does all this for you, and if you do it can be too harsh for the skin.
As you can see from the above photo, the brush head has two different bristle types. The white are for all over usage, so you can cleanse the cheeks and forehead, while the green are a little harsher so that you can angle the brush to really dig into the areas that you usually miss when cleansing. I find them really beneficial for cleansing around the nose and those pesky spots I tend to get on my forehead and chin. I find this has really helped to reduce the pores on my nose and to combat those tiny blemishes also. It helps to let your moisturiser and products really seep into the skin and to give a gorgeous radiant finish.
I will say that my skin has really improved since using the Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush. It’s a lot clearer, there is reduced redness and my skin actually glows. It is soft to touch and your skin is left looking and feeling fabulous. I use twice daily, but not on the days I am exfoliating as I don’t want to overdo the skin and create excess oil, and I feel so fresh after usage. Admittedly, the brush is very pricey at £79.00, but I like to think of it as an investment. This is going to be so long lasting and will outrun face cloths and wipes as well as seriously benefiting my skin. I was concerned that it would be too harsh but I haven’t had any experiences like that. I simply buff over the skin and the results are outstanding.
Have you tried this product?
It’s another thumbs up for Clinique for me!
Lots of love,
