Facial cleansing brush

What is a Facial Cleansing Brush?

Facial cleansing brushes spin or vibrate across the surface of your skin to exfoliate and give you a really deep clean. And a deep clean is definitely what you need if you’re trying to get rid of blackheads. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit any budget, but a general rule of thumb would be that the more expensive the face brush, the more effective the clean you are going to get and the better the build quality. Spend a bit more and you’l find it easier to buy a range of replacement brush heads to suit your skin and the longer it will last.

Why should you buy a face brush?

Most of us have breakouts of blackheads, acne or other blemishes from time to time that we’d rather not have, and washing with hands or a washrag and using soap and water will not get rid of all the impurities and oils left on your skin. Cue the face brush for a truly effective facial cleansing. There really is no better way to keep your face cleaner, no better way to remove all the grime that builds up on your skin than using one of these. Using one regularly will start to clear your blackheads and blemishes, leaving you with clearer, more radiant skin to show off to the world!

Clarisonic Mia 2 given top rating in top 10 facial cleansing brushes

1. Clarisonic Mia 2

The Clarisonic Mia 2 scores highly whichever criteria you use to differentiate it from its peers. Using gentle massage movements to cleanse and exfoliate your skin you’ll soon find the surface feeling incredibly fresh, clean and soft to touch. The Clarisonic Mia 2 combines top quality build quality with efficacy that simply can’t be beaten at this price. The beauty of this face brush, is that there is absolutely no need to press it against your face – just hold it against your skin and use circular movements to cover the surface whilst the Mia 2 glides over your face doing what it needs to do. It works within skin’s natural elasticity to sweep away dirt, oil, and makeup to unclog pores, while fluid forces allow the water on the device to flush pores clean. If you want long term blackhead removal at home, then this is the brush for you.

This is a facial cleansing brush that is designed for both men and women. The Clarisonic Mia 2 has the edge of the previous Clarisonic Mia 1 (which is still a great quality facial cleansing brush) because it offers you two speeds: Low for sensitive skin and then a universal speed for a deeper clean. It feels comfortable to hold and doesn’t slip out of your hand. The massage movements that happen every second feel good against the skin, and immediately after using it, the skin feels incredibly smooth. It works within skin’s natural elasticity to sweep away dirt, oil, and makeup to unclog pores, while fluid forces allow the water on the device to flush pores clean.

Brush heads:


PROs: Exceptional results, good variety of replacement brushes to suit all skin types, superb build quality, two speeds, range of colours.
