Thanks to being a part of the BeautyDirectory Expert Panel I was lucky to be given the PuraSonic Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush for trial. Here are my thoughts; 

What They Say:

The PuraSonic device is a facial cleansing brush that deeply cleanses skin. Using oscillating technology, the device has over 300 movements per second and is proven to be up to nine times better than manual cleansing when used with a cleanser*. The device is fully rechargeable, waterproof and safe to use in the shower. It features three speeds and a built-in timer, which designates 20 seconds for both the forehead and chin, and ten seconds for each cheek. The PuraSonic also has three built-in speeds that allow users to customize their cleanse. The device comes with a Gentle brush head for sensitive skin and an Everyday brush head for normal skin, as well as a magna-link charger, USB cord and waterproof stand. Available in four colours: Artic White/Pink Button, Arctic White/Grey Button, Perfectly Pink and Lovely Lilac.

RRP: $99 – Available from Priceline, Target, Ry and Purasonic

What I Say:

I have to be completely honest and admit that cleansing brushes are not new to me. I’ve trialled several different ones, and frequently use my Clairsonic Mia 2 which I purchase several years ago, and still love dearly.

The PuraSonic Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush is very similar to the ClairSonic. In fact so similar that the actual brush looks more or less identical. But they are no affiliated (as also stated on the PuraSonic box!).

Like the Clairsonic, the PuraSonic has 300 oscillating movements per second where the inner bristles of the brush oscillate a little to make it feel like it is vibrating to clean deep down every single pore to rid the skin or any excess oil, dirt and makeup. And I have to agree with the claim that the brush clean the skin so much better than cleansing the old fashioned way with your hands, you can simply see and feel it on your skin afterwards. I have also always been prone to breakouts, but using the brush regularly I definitely feels that I get less breakouts, and those that I do get, are considerable smaller and also seems to fade quicker too, than when I’m not using the brush.

The PuraSonic is waterproof so you can take it with you in the shower, which I really like. It comes with a stand that is also used as the charger, and once fully charged, it can last a month before needing to be charged again.

The brush has 3 different speeds, and a built-in 1 minute timer that helps you cleanse your face in the most optimal way without over-cleansing, as it allows 20m seconds to cleanse the forehead 20 seconds for the chin and nose area, and 10 seconds for each cheek – so hence allowing a little more time for the t-zone area that generally needs it more than the cheeks.

After using the PuraSonic for several weeks my skin is definitely clearer and my skin seems to be less greasy and I consequently have less breakouts, and my pores also seems to be smaller and my skin more refined – and therefore I also find that my makeup applies more evenly, and also stays put for longer. Unfortunately, as claimed, any lines and wrinkles on my face don’t seem to have changed or minimised one bit, but I have noticed that any serums and creams that I use absorb into the skin quicker, and that my skin in general has a healthier glow. Here it is again important to keep in mind that I am a regular user of a ClairSonic, and these results are the same as what I’d see with the Clairsonic when I start using it again after not using it for a while.

Overall I really like the PuraSonic Cleansing brush as it is an easy-to-use cleansing brush that cleans deep down every pore, making my skin softer and smoother and with a more radiant and healthy glow - and in general I couldn’t live without a cleansing brush, as it has just done wonders to my skin since I started using one. The PuraSonic retails at $99, which, while still not cheap, is still considerably cheaper than the ClairSonic Mia 2 which retails for around $190. While the oscillating movements are supposed to be the same on the two brushes, it for some reason seems as if my (several years old) ClairSonic is still a touch more powerful – in saying that, if I didn’t already own a Clairsonic, I wouldn’t hesitate purchasing a PuraSonic, especially if I was on a budget, as this difference is still only minor so the PuraSonic is a great alternative if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, yet still wants a good deep cleanse of your skin.

Have you tried a sonic cleansing brush? Or do you prefer simply using hands?
