The New Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

The New Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

I'm back to trying cleansing brushes and newest on the block is the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush. I know what you are thinking, probably the exact same thoughts as I had "What makes this different from any of the other millions cleansing brush?". 

The New Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

Well for a start it is completely waterproof, you can leave in the shower on the side of the bath and it will be safe. It also comes with a USB charger option as well as your regular UK plug and being a Clinique product it has of course been dermatologist developed and tested. I kid you not when I say that Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush has the softest brush head I have ever tried out, the bristle heads are long, flexible and really soft on the skin. If you have sensitive skin like myself certain products and devices can be too abrasive well this is the cleansing brush option for you. Despite being super soft it does still cleanse effectively, the brush head vibrates in a circular motion removing any dirt, grime or make-up. What I personally like best is the fact the brush has an angled head which made getting into the contours of the face a lot easier and quicker may I add, it is apparently here where dirt likes to hide and become trapped. Lovely!

Clinique state that the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is to be used once a day, use in circular motions for 15 seconds on cheeks using white bristles then massage in up-and-down motion for 15 seconds on T-Zone using the green bristles. I'm more slap dash than that, I tend to just use it all over my face for the 30 seconds the timer has been programmed to deliver and call it a day. I do want to stress that you remove make-up before using the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, think of the brush step as the second cleansing stage in your routine, otherwise you will make a mess!

 Clinique state that the brush heads will last up to six months before needing replaced with is a plus - even with daily use. The brush head has been created with an angled tip which tilts deep into the T-Zone, the reason for this is because most people produce more oil in said area. By brushing the skin we draw out impurities to help create smooth, glowing skin and purified pores i.e they look smaller as clogged dirt/grime has been removed. Perhaps more importantly the bristles on the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing brush head feature anti-microbial technology which helps to keep the bristles clean and fresh. 


I have now used the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush twice and feel like the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is better suited to my sensitive skin than most cleansing brushes. It doesn't irritate my skin. leave it red, angry looking or feeling tender after use. I do have to point out that I don't use a foaming cleanser in conjunction with any brush, rather I use a cleansing oil - it feels more like a facial this way and my skin doesn't become stripped of moisture. So far I like how my face feels after each use - soft, deeply cleansed yet not uncomfortable after each use. I will continue to use for a full month (I am dreading the purge stage) and let you know how I get on but so far, so good.

  5. oooh a cleansing system by clinique and it seems to be quite good seeing that the bristles are very gentle and appropriate for sensitive skin girlies like me. Its such a shame that I have the clarisonic and i have been getting on well with it so I don't think i need to invest in a nother skin cleansing system. Maybe as a gift would be nice though :)

    Thanks for sharing, I hope you have a wonderful day! ^^

  9. I don't quite understand how you can recommend this cleansing brush after having used it twice. I hope you intend to write a review after actually using the product.

  10. Hey Adrienne X

    How much are the replacement brush heads? Looking forward to hearing more about this in the future ;) I've the Olay cleansing brush at the moment and I'm beginning to think the movement might be a little too rough on the skin.
