8 of the best facial cleansing brushes
As far gizmos and gadgets go, the cleansing brush is one of the best skin care inventions yet. I can’t live without mine (love you, my little Clarisonic Mia 2!), and I’m 132.87 per cent certain you’d find one in every single beauty editor’s bathroom. Yep, they truly are that good.
But why do we think they’re so darn wonderful? Well, they do a much better job of cleaning your skin than your fingers, which means a clearer, more radiant complexion. They also sweep away dead skin cells and help unblock your pores, while also preparing your skin for topical treatments. This means your anti-ageing lotions and potions are able to seep deeper into your skin, enabling them to work harder and faster, leaving you with healthy, youthful skin. Love.
Want to purchase one but don’t know which cleansing tool is right for you? Each of these eight devices will treat you – and your skin – exceptionally well. Promise.
This rechargeable gem is smaller than the original Clarisonic Plus, making it an exceptional choice for those who travel frequently or are lacking space in the shower caddy. Its tinier size doesn’t mean it’s tiny on benefits, though. It’ll still clean your skin six times deeper than manual washing thanks to its sonic technology and micro-massage motion. Win!
If you’ve got sensitive skin, you’ll love the two-speed setting on this sleek-looking rechargeable cleansing brush. It allows you to control the level of cleansing for a soft or milder cleanse, and the one-minute timer means you’ll never use it for too long. Another bonus: this tool has two different brush heads – one for normal skin and one for sensitive skin.
A great affordable option for those wanting to dabble in the cleansing brush arena before committing to a more expensive model, this battery-operated facial device is exceptional at ridding the skin of dirt and make-up.
Ditching grit and grime from deep down in your pores is made super easy with this handy tool. It features two strengths of bristles - the pale green shorter ones to deeply cleanser oil-prone areas like the T-zone, and the longer, softer white bristles to gently cleanse delicate areas like the cheeks.
Featuring two spin speeds to customise your cleanse, this whiz-bang brush reaches over 400 rotations per minute. Dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types, it features nylon bristles with polished tips and rounded ends so they feel super soft against your skin.
Available in two colours (blue and pink), this sleek, battery operated brush features densely packed, ultra-fine bristles for an extra-gentle cleanse. Its light, slim design makes it particularly easy to use. It also comes with a stand for neat storage!
Suitable for use on the face and body, this cleansing device aims to gently remove make-up, dirt and oil in 60 seconds flat. It also features four different speeds and unique body cleansing modes.
Featuring a 360-degree rotation, this brush is designed to give acne-prone skin a deeper clean. The soft, tapered bristles also work to improve the appearance of the décolleté, elbows, knees, hands and feet. How's that for multitasking?
