Clarisonic has ceased operations in 2020 – and some loyal fans are still mourning the loss of its popular facial cleansing brush. Although previously purchased Clarisonic devices will continue to operate, you will no longer be able to purchase new brush heads, and if your current Clarisonic device becomes unusable, you will not be able to replace it.
Fortunately, LovelySkin offers a range of comparable facial cleansers that not only offer the benefits of great Clarisonic cleansing, but also offer additional benefits such as anti-aging, massage and gentler exfoliation. If you are still looking for the right replacement for your beloved Clarisonic facial cleansing brush, we can help answer questions such as:
What are the benefits of using a face cleansing brush?
Clarisonic facial cleansers have revolutionized the skin care industry by offering the first system of facial cleansing brushes. The design of their cleansing brush included nylon brushes powered by patented sonic vibration to clean the skin up to six times better than just using your hands. Nowadays, there are many options of facial cleansers to choose from and it should come as no surprise that they are considered to be one of the best skin care devices at home and a favorite of LovelySkin customers. For best results, face cleaning brushes can be combined with your favorite make-up remover to remove dirt, debris and makeup more easily and efficiently than ever before.
These devices also serve as some of the best facial exfoliation tools. Like Clarisonic exfoliating brushes, facial cleansers help remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and clog your skin. Here are some of the benefits of a face cleansing brush that you may experience the first time you use it with regular use:
- The skin appears instantly purified with the appearance of a finer, brighter and brighter complexion.
- Increased absorption of favorite serums and facial moisturizers.
- Large pores and fine lines appear small.
As skin care research has progressed, facial cleansing brushes have come with additional anti-aging benefits. “One of the things I love most about newer facial cleansing brushes is that many are made of more hygienic silicone,” says board-certified dermatologist and LovelySkin founder Dr. Joel Schlessinger. “Silicone is not only softer than brushes with potentially abrasive nylon bristles, but it’s also easier to clean and keep bacteria out of your face.”
If you are looking for a Clarisonic replacement, FOREO Luna 3 is one of our favorite face cleansing brushes, as it uses enhanced T-Sonic pulses to thoroughly cleanse your skin. You can also turn it over and give the skin a firm massage, which is temporarily high and full. Because it’s made of silicone, you don’t have to worry about replacing brush heads, as you did with previous Clarisonic products. This silicone facial brush is also considered to be 35 times more hygienic than a traditional facial cleansing brush. What does this mean for the skin? It means a really clear complexion, without clogging the pores and impure bacteria.
Who should use a face scrub brush?
In short – everyone! Yes, this is also true for people with sensitive skin. Newer and more advanced exfoliating and facial cleansing brushes are designed to be gentler on the skin. In addition, they do much more than cleanse the skin, providing skin-friendly benefits that all skin types will appreciate. Many of today’s facial cleansers come with a more compact design, such as the FOREO Luna Mini 3 facial cleansing brush, making them easy to take with you when you travel. Similar to larger FOREO devices, this cleansing brush uses T-Sonic pulses and hygienic silicone to thoroughly cleanse the skin, while minimizing the appearance of dilated pores and providing a gentle exfoliation. An update to your beloved Clarisonic, this device uses Bluetooth technology and advanced 24k gold skin sensors to measure your skin’s moisture level, allowing you to truly customize your cleansing routine to create a sophisticated type of your skin.
Another option is the Nion Beauty Opus Luxe facial cleanser, which has a soft, short-brushed silicone brush head and is similar in size and shape to the popular Clarisonic facial brushes. Suitable for all skin types, it offers three different speed options for a more personalized cleansing. Thinner silicone brushes, which extend over most of the brush head, are suitable for sensitive skin types, while thicker brushes at the top of the brush head can be used for deeper cleaning.
PMD Clean Pro Gold is another great option for Clarisonic alternatives. It is an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin or those looking for more anti-aging benefits. This premium face cleansing brush, made of ultra-hygienic silicone, harnesses the power of 7,000 pulses per minute to cleanse the skin, while helping to lift, tone and firm the skin. Features SonicGlow ™ and ActiveWarmth ™ heat therapy to warm the skin to increase serum absorption and anti-aging treatments. A 24k gold-plated metal massage device offers skin anti-inflammatory benefits that also increase skin elasticity.
