Facial Cleansing Brush Reviews

By Alexandra D’Ambrosio

It seems that as I get older, I use more skin care and anti aging products than I ever imagined!

It makes sense, however, because as we age we always do more to try to look like we did in the past.  Younger, more supple skin, and less blemishes!

One item that’s been a hot skin care item the last few years is the facial cleansing brushes.  In case you haven’t heard of them, here’s how they work.

All products vary, but you get a handheld device that’s either powered by plugging into the wall with a chord, or you get a battery powered device.  I prefer battery powered devices personally.

Before you read the reviews, here’s why it’s so important to have one of these items these days if you are really trying to do proper skin care treatments.

One would THINK that it’s just the same to wash our faces using our hands, right?

Just lather up some soap, or maybe even a facial cleanser, and wash away all the dirt and dead skin cells?  It’s proper, right?

As I discussed this with many ladies at the health club who I consider “in the know” people, for lack of a better word, I was constantly given the quotes from Dermatologists, high-paid skin doctors, and all sorts of cosmetic surgeons who had weighed in on these devices.

“These products create more friction,” was one quote I heard.

“You need to deep exfoliate,” another one said.

“What better to get rid of dead skin than a penetrating brush,” was another comment.

I took to the web, as always, and looked for some deals.  Of course, there were so many brands to choose from!

The Mia Clarisonic, The Wave by Neutrogena, and products by Proactiv, SkinPro, and Olay.

So I put in some serious time, got personal demo’s from friends who owned different models, and this is what I came up with for my reviews of facial cleansing brushes.

Lastly, I did a comparison between the two, in case anyone was trying to decide which one to purchase.
