Facial cleansing brushes have become pretty popular lately. Currently, the most popular facial cleansing brushes are the Clarisonic, Olay, Proactive Deep Cleaning Brush just to name a few. One of the reasons they became so popular is the results viewers were seeing from their favorite YouTubers. I know I witnessed one of my favorite YouTubers using a Clarisonic and how she raved about it. Soon I learned one of my closest friends owned a Clarisonic, but I didn’t see many benefits for her specifically. Nor did she rave about it to me, she did mention how expensive it was.
These facial cleansing brushes range between $5-$200. There are plenty of facial cleansing brushes for those of us like myself on a budget which you buy at many retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Ulta, and Amazon.
The pros of having a facial cleansing brush and incorporating it into your daily skin care routine are shrinking your pores, exfoliating, smoother skin, and brighter complexion. Personally, I have certainly seen a difference since using my facial cleansing brush. My skin is smoother, softer, clearer, and my pores are significantly smaller.
What is also contributing to your success?
The products you choose to use your facial cleansing brush with is one of the biggest contributors to the success of your brush. Although the brush is designed to help wash your face in a more productive way, it won’t help if you’re using the wrong product. I would highly suggest trying different face washes to see which one would give you the best result. Once you find the right product to support your facial cleansing brush then you can invest in an expensive facial brush if you desire too. For instance, I’ve been using mine with my charcoal soap daily and it has worked WONDERS. I can see a huge difference from how my skin looked before, and then before with using the charcoal soap on its own and then combining the soap with the facial brush.
My Personal Experience
I recently bought a simple facial cleansing brush at a grocery store for $5. I liked the design of the brush and the features that were advertised which was battery operated, different brushes for different settings, and different colors. I knew the brush would an everlasting effect on my skin because my skin is sensitive and very calm. I don’t break out often, almost hardly ever now that I’m in my 20’s. I tend to switch face washes often because I like trying new products and sometimes the products I use have a negative effect on my skin. Recently I’ve been using my charcoal soap more and more because it’s been working so well with my facial cleansing brush. However, I still my baking soda face wash about once a week.
The reason I’m sticking with the charcoal soap is that it has the best consistency to compliment the facial cleansing brush. I’ve tried using one of my scrubs initially, but since it is a scrub it doesn’t produce the best result in the end. I’ve also used my baking soda face wash which has little beads in it making it not the best choice to use with the facial brush as well because the beads create more conflict instead of benefits when washing my face with the facial cleanser brush.
Overall, I believe facial cleansing brushes are a good investment. I saw a few on Amazon which I might decide to purchase in the future. I think the only cons to my personal facial cleansing brush are it’s battery operated and not water resistant. Those are the only two features I’d like the next brush to have better quality on. For $5, my skin is looking much nicer this summer.
