The Best Facial Cleansing Brushes To Invest In Right Now

By  | 

If you’ve never heard about the Clarisonic System, then you’ve been hiding under a rock and need to emerge into the real world asap. Every beauty blogger worth her salt will tell you that the Clarisonic cleansing brushes are THE best facial cleansing brushes out there. If you don’t know what a cleansing brush is or how to use one, here’s the deal.

Facial cleansing brushes are small handheld machines that give your face a powerful deep cleanse, and help unclog pores and exfoliate dead skin cells better than any make-up remover or face wash can. These cleansing devices usually have a rotating brush head (some have pulsating ones) that gently scrub your facial skin and give you a bright, squeaky clean complexion after each use. What’s more, they even improve blood circulation by purging your skin of toxins and give you visibly healthier skin.

While the Clarisonic System uses transdermal sonic pulsations and high oscillation speeds to deep clean your skin, this superstar  tool comes at a pretty price. But that doesn’t mean your skin should be deprived of a wonder product. There are some great alternatives out there, and I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for you at every budget.


Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System_Hauterfly

1. Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System (Rs 2,750)

The Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System has often been compared to the Clarisonic Mia 2. It spins all the way around instead of spinning back and forth. It is lightweight since it is battery-operated — unlike the Clarisonic which has rechargeable batteries —  making it ideal for travel. It comes with two speed settings and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Apart from the standard face brush, you also get a face sponge — which is great as it enables deeper penetration of your skincare products — a large body brush, and a pumice stone for your feet.


Proactiv Deep Cleansing Brush_Hauterfly

3. Proactiv Deep Cleansing Brush (Rs 1,400)

Although there are no speed options in the Proactive Deep Cleansing Brush, it does a good job of deep cleansing the skin. It is lightweight and portable, and the bristles are neither too hard nor too soft.


Dermalogica Exfoliating Facial Brush_Hauterfly

There are three speed settings that let you opt for either gentle cleansing, deep cleansing, or microdermabrasion according to your skin’s needs.
