Over the past few weeks I have read a lot about electric facial cleansing brushes. Particularly the Clarisonic, unfortunately this brush is on the rather high end of the market priced between £179 and £115. As I wasn't sure how my skin would respond to the use of the facial brush I didn't want to splash out. I did a fair bit of research on cheaper alternatives and decided to go for the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush. Priced at only £24.95 it seemed like a great bargain.
I spent a while talking to the lovely ladies on the No7 counter and they gave me some great advice on what cleansers would work best with the device and for my skin type. I ended up purchasing the Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush, the replacement heads and the Beautiful Skin Cleansing Balm for Dry to Very Dry Skin. There is currently a 3 for 2 offer on all No7 products so the replacement heads actually came through for free!
The brush runs off two AA batteries which are provided. The brush is lightweight and fits comfortably in your hand.
The brush has two speeds which are controlled simply through a central button.
I have used the brush about 5 times now, once every other day and I can see great results already. My skin looks fresher and glowing. The brush gently removes all the unnecessary particles and dead skin off your face. I suffer from patches of dry skin and using the brush, with the dry skin cleanser has almost eradicated these dry skin patches.
Using the brush is very simple. All you need to do is remove all makeup or moisturisers from skin, before applying a layer of cleanser to your face. You want it to be a thin, yet visible layer across your whole face (don't rub the cleanser in). Wet the head of the brush with warm water. Turn on and move all over the skin. I work in circular motions to make the most of the brush rotation. The brush will work with your cleanser to get deep into your pores. Focus problem areas to make the most of your cleansing treatment (I focus on my chin as I have a lot of dry skin here). You only need use the brush for a couple of minutes and your skin will start to feel fresh and revitalised. Once you've finished with the brush get a warm/hot water soaked facial clothes and wipe off the excess cleanser. This feels lovely so I repeat a few times. Dry off your face and then finish off with your usual moisturiser. I saw results from my first use and with continued use I'm sure my skin will improve further.
I would defiantly recommend giving this brush a try if you are looking to purchase an electric facial brush. Its a great brush and I don't think the extra £100 is worth spending with this being such good quality.
