I've been wanting to incorporate a facial cleansing brush in to my daily skin care lineup for some time now. At 25 years old, I still deal with acne and after taking years to nail down the right cleansers, moisturizer, and makeup, it seems natural to want to add a deep cleaning brush to my daily routine.
The first and obvious choice was to go with a Clairsonic. I've been looking at purchasing the Mia 2 for years now, but could never bring myself to actually buy it. I've been told time and time again that that it's totally worth the price, but I'm terrified that my acne prone skin won't react well and I will end up spending upwards of $200 on a product that just isn't right for me. Of course I've tried several drug store cleansing brushes, but I've never found one that I wanted to keep using.
During one of my (frequent) trips to sephora.com, I noticed this little guy. A manual and extremely affordable facial cleansing brush.
I talked about receiving it in my 25th Birthday Haul post. I've been using it for a few months now, and here's my review:
What I Liked: In a nutshell, this brush is simple, effective, and extremely well priced. The bristles are very dense and well made, but also soft on the skin. I was worried that I would experience a scratchy feeling rather than a clean feeling, but that just isn't the case. I've been using the brush nightly to help take off my makeup, and I feel totally exfoilated and tingly when I finish using it.
What I Didn't Like: It would be nice if you could buy replacement heads for this brush instead of having to buy a whole new one, but for only $13 CAD I can't really complain.
Final Thoughts: I will definitely be purchasing this brush again. It works very well for my skin - even better than I thought it would. I also can't help loving that it's pink! Go buy this brush!
