CLINIQUE Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush
My purchase was made at Shoppers Drug Mart for around $100 and it came with some full size products, a cleanser, moisturizer and toning lotion. I thought it was a pretty good value. There are several different facial cleaning brushes on the market that are less expensive but I prefer to try to get a quality item, especially when it comes to something you will be using on your face regularly.
I like the design of the Clinique Sonic System and along with the charger, it has a smaller profile so it doesn’t take up too much space. As always with these electronic units there is an initial charge required, usually 24 hours. The charge does last a long time though. Usually about three weeks with use once a day.
When cleansing the face you would first wet the brush head with water then put a dab of your regular cleanser on the brush head. Turn on the unit and place it on your face. There is no need to apply any pressure just place it on your face and use a curricular motion. I normally would start on my forehead then move along to one side, then my chin then the other side of my face. The unit will shut off automatically after every 30 seconds. You can easily press the power button to have it come on again. This is a good reminder to move to the next area of your face, after all there is such a thing as over cleansing. After use then rinse off the brush head thoroughly so it will be ready for the next use and won’t dry with product still on the brush. Keep in mind that over time the brush head will have to be replaced.
My cosmetic doctor did mention that these electronic brush cleansing devices can thin the skin over time if over used. I have cut back to using the unit to about three times a week as I have sensitive/oily skin. I think the unit does do a great job of exfoliating your skin and works better then just a wash cloth. I like the way my skin feels after using the CLINIQUE Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush and I would recommend this product.
