Review // Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

clinique sonic system review
It's been some time now since different cleansing brushes hit the market and i think it's fair to say it's boomed as some brushes are quite swooned after, i think we all know what I'm on about. As a mother i always really question big spends like this however i finally bite the bullet and treated myself. I have now been using this in my skincare regime for over two months so now feel like i can give a true and honest review. 

The details

 The brush head has two types of bristles, the white being softer designed to be gentle on larger areas of the face and the green bristles are slightly  "harder" which are for oily and harder to clean areas such as the nose, chin and t-zone. The brush head is tilted and powered by sonic movements instead of the head rotating, this offers deep but gentle cleaning  and is the main reason i chose this brush as i didn't want it to be too harsh on my skin. It has one speed and an automatic shut off of 30 seconds so just a simple push of the button is all that's needed. It's sleek white design is completely waterproof so can be used in the shower if desired and has a stand to charge via usb or plug, it also comes with a brush cap which allows the brush to dry whilst still protecting it.
My thoughts
There has been some negative thoughts towards the way the brush vibrates and the fact it's the unit that sends sonic vibrations through the brush head and not the actual head itself that moves, personally i love this feature as i have rosacea and sensitive skin and have found this isn't harsh or to abrasive and i can alter the pressure i use on different areas. Since the first use i could immediately tell a difference in the cleanliness of my skin and make-up i thought i had thoroughly removed was on the brush head. With it removing so much hidden dirt i was concerned i might get a few break outs but it didn't even cause that...phew. 
 I like to use this once a day in the evening when I'm removing make-up so that i know my skin is completely clean and then will benefit even more from the serums and creams i use at night. You can use this twice a day if you desire however i just personally choose to do it this way and just use soap and water in the morning. Depending on how much make-up I've had on i will use this between 30 seconds to a minute to really cleanse my skin. Using a cream cleanser which i massage onto my face first, i then lightly dampen the brush and starting on either cheek i buff the product into my skin using circular motions. As this is so quick and easy i have also found i haven't been slacking on my skin care.
I was a bit of a sceptic as to weather a cleansing brush would make a big enough difference to my skin to pay that much money but this system has really changed my opinion. My skin has improved a lot. it's softer, smoother, brighter and my pours around my nose area are less visible. Yes it is slightly on the pricey side but it's less harsh than cheaper alternatives I've looked at and when used right works perfectly. I also believe this would be fantastic for travelling with it being small and sleek and as it has a very long battery life, i have only just needed to charge mine.
