Why You're Probably Not Getting Your Face Really Clean
I had some friends over the weekend of the 4th of July and one commented on, “that harsh brush thing for cleaning the face,” that was in my bathroom. And a few of the others in the room chimed in with agreement that they just looked like they would hurt. Unless you’ve tried one of these like the Clarisonic, then you too probably think that, but it’s so not true!
Take this PHILIPS PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System ($99 @ amazon.com). Like the aforementioned, it’s made to use on the face so it’s not going to be harsh and I think most of think our skin is more delicate than it is. This mechanism uses Sonic technology plus Advanced Dual Motion, which are rotations of the brush head, to clean the skin from makeup and dirt, much more effectively than from just manually cleaning your face and all it takes is 60 seconds. I mean, I have no way to tell if I've removed all the day's dirt and makeup when I use my trusty washcloth but with this one, I know I pretty much have.
Their cleansing system breaks the face up into three areas – each cheek and the forehead, so you spend 20 seconds on each section with the brush. And it’s easy-peasy - turn the device on, add your cleanser to the bristles, and just work it around each area. A slight pause of the brushes activity will interrupt the brushes work when it’s time to move to the next area of the face. And you can choose from 2 different speed settings – speed one for gentle and speed 2 for deep cleansing.
For $99 you get the mechanism, a charger, two brush heads, a drying stand and a sleek cloth case for when you are not using it or if you are traveling with it. They recommend replacing the brush heads every 6 months and each is $17.99 or $19.99. ne is that the soft bristles are longer than other brushes I have used and this one combines sonic cleansing pulses and a rotating brush, so my face really feels like it’s getting deep down clean, and I don’t mean squeaky clean. I tend to push on the brush while using it on each area, so that’s something I have to get used to not doing. I never really took to the one mentioned at the beginning of this post, but this one I seem to be!
And did I mention the exfoliating benefits of this? And I also give a “session” of cleansing with this to my neck and décolletage area too. Why not? And overall big recommendation and hopefully my friends will begin to catch on.
