Sephora Sonic Pore Cleansing Brush Review

I have always had an interest in finding the best in skincare, whether it be a product or tool, so when I was browsing at Sephora with my friend and I saw this nifty device at $36 I thought I'd give it a try. This is the Sephora Sonic Pore Cleansing Brush.

Here's what Sephora has to say about the product:

What it is: 
A pulsating and massaging face brush that assists in improving the appearance and texture of skin. 

What it does: 
Most available facial cleansing brushes oscillate or spin, sometimes pulling the skin, and are not as suitable for more sensitive skin types. The Sonic Pore Cleansing Brush utilizes tiny sonic pulses at a rate of 8,000 strokes per minute to effectively remove impurities while the soft bristles remain gentle on the skin. Made with 150,000 extra-fine, densely packed, antibacterial bristles, it provides both deep cleansing and massage and is great for those with more sensitive skin. The pulsing action removes makeup and impurities much better than manual cleansing. 

What else you need to know: 
This tool is portable and travel friendly. It requires one AAA battery (not included).

As you can see in the pictures ,the bristles on the brush are very dense. The one good thing is that the bristles are SUPER soft. So soft to the point where I can run it over my eyelids and it isn't abrasive at all. I think the easiest way for me to describe this product is to do a PRO/CON list. 

- soft bristles
- reasonable price
- has a stand for your counter

- the plastic is rather cheap
- the pulsing action is very weak. You can barely feel it, so you won't feel that deep cleansing action you'd hope to feel with an electric face cleansing brush - especially for something called "sonic pore cleansing brush" you'd wish for it to have some power! some oomph!
- because the bristles are so densely packed, it is really hard for this brush to dry thoroughly, so it could be a breading ground for bacteria and mildew. 

Overall Thoughts:
I ended up returning this product as I'd rather save my $36 and either invest it in a Clarisonic or just stick to what's been working for me - which is to just use my hands ;) But hey! when I want some added exfoliation, I've been incorporating a muslin cloth to my face cleansing routine and it's worked wonders!

Until next time - XO, M.
