Hi gorgeous people, I have been dying to post this review for you ever since last Thursday but I just HAD to make sure this product wasn’t a one hit wonder!
So last Wednesday, I went into work to find the Clinique girls from Boots were there with a pop up shop. It’s safe to say, I pretty much ran to the stall! Now if you have read some of my previous posts, you will know I rate Clinique highly so I was pretty excited to get some treats in before Christmas.
Amongst the toners, cleansers and moisturisers, I saw the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Brush. For those who do not know what this is, it’s a sonic moving, gentle bristle brush which targets all of those contoured, hard to reach areas that dirt likes to clog up and hide in. I had previously read a lot about these brushes and all of the great reviews that come along with them so I splurged a little and £79.00 later, the brush was mine.
I know what you’re thinking, £79.00 for a brush BUT, it came in a set which included a full size Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Wash, Clinique Makeup Remover and a Clinique Gel Moisturiser. Those products alone cost roughly £45.00 and are what I would usually purchase anyway so to me, this was actually a bargain.
How to use?
- Use once daily for 30 seconds.
- Apply foaming wash to moistened skin or the brush head.
- Massage in a circular motion for 15 seconds on your cheeks using the white bristles.
- Massage in up-and-down motion for 15 seconds on your T-Zone using the green bristles.
- Rinse and pat dry.
- Rinse brush head after each use.
- Apply toner and moisturiser.
Below I have added a photo, the first on the left is my face after just a standard make up wipe and hand wash. The second photo on the right is my face after using the sonic brush! It looks clearer, cleaner a smoother. My skin honestly has never felt so clean and dirt free.
The brush literally gets into every wrinkle, line, fold and pore. It completely rids the days dirt and oil leaving your complexion glowing.
If you don’t believe me, see for yourself. This photo was taken AFTER I had already used a make-up wipe to remove my day makeup and then hand washed my face using the foaming wash. Your makeup and dirt literally hides everywhere!!
I love so many things about this product, I really do. I love the look, it’s clean-looking and sleek, it’s waterproof (thank god) and it looks clinical. The brush comes with a stand up charger and plug, it only needs 1 or 2 hours charge for 8 hours of use. I know I have said it already but the way it makes my skin look and feel is incredible, I don’t think my skin has ever looked this healthy, not in my 25 years of existence. For once in my life, I enjoy being barefaced. No oily, greasy shine beaming from my forehead and even better, no clogged pores!
I appreciate £79.00 is steep and you can purchase similar brushes for less but in my opinion; you get what you pay for. If you’re contemplating getting the Clinique Sonic System brush but unsure, maybe invest in a cheaper brush first and see how you find the results and think it’s worth investment. Boots No7 have a Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush which is £25.00. Give yourself the gift of beautiful skin.
I will put both the Clinique brush and the No7 brush for you on my products page along with websites and purchase links so you can have a browse.
Do you have this brush or one similar? Let me know what you think, how it’s benefited you, your skin and if you think it’s worth the money! If you have any questions at all, drop me a comment or an email!
Thanks for taking the time to read this review.
Until next time..
All my love, Levi-Maria.
