By now, most people have heard about Clarisonic cleansing brushes. While they still seem to be the dominating the market and the company claims they are superior due to high oscillation speeds, they are pretty pricey. However, there are a lot of great quality, well-reviewed options that are a bit more affordable. This post aims to introduce you to some of the alternatives.

All skin cleansing brushes boast the same claims. Regular use improves tone, texture, elasticity, and firmness. They work by gently exfoliating as you cleanse, allowing for a deeper clean, are more efficient makeup removal, and improve blood flow to the skin. Because skin is cleaner, medications and products you apply after their use are more effective due to the fact that they are able to penetrate more deeply. In a two-week study that Lancome conducted using the Clarisonic brand, 50 women used a skin brush on one half of their face. All of the participants saw smaller pores and brighter skin on the side that was cleansed with the brush.

Some people experience breakouts after adding a skin brush to their routine. According to dermatologists, this is fairly common and should clear up in a couple weeks as dead skin cells are removed. In fact, skin brushes should improve acne over time and reduce blackheads and pore size.

Look for a skin cleansing brush with soft bristles to gently remove impurities and stick to using it no more than once a day. Overusing skin brushes can lead to redness and irritation. It is also advised to not use them with other manual or chemical exfoliants. Keep skin brushes clean my washing them with soap and water and periodically soaking them in rubbing alcohol to destroy bacteria.

I’ve included both electric and manual skin cleansing brushes in this product roundup. I compare these the way I would with toothbrushes. An electric version is best, but manual gets the job done and is still much better than doing nothing!
