No7 Cleansing Brush


Apologies for image quality, ISO was far too high. Todays review is on the Boots No7 Cleansing Brush which in some peoples eyes can be seen as a dupe for the Clarisonic Mia cleansing brush that is incredibly popular amongst Bloggers. My mum has a Mia and correct me if I'm wrong they're around £120? I got the No7 cleansing brush for a fraction of the cost at £15. The original price was £25 however there were so many left over from the Christmas period there are huge amounts being sold off for cheap. If you're local to Manchester the Trafford Centre has a huge huge amount of these stacked up on sale upstairs, and have done for quite some weeks.

I probably should have done a comparison between this and the Clarisonic come to think of it. On a verbal note I find that the bristles are pretty much the same in texture, the No7 ones are longer however. They are equally as abrasive. The No7 brush comes with two speed settings (not that I noticed until I'd been going at my chin on the high speed, sensitive skin ouch!) I like to apply a cream cleanser (Simple Cleansing Lotion is perf) with a little Soap and Glory Flake Away exfoliant on my nose and chin then go for an all in one method on the slowest setting, speeding it up only on the planes of the forehead where the skin isn't generally sensitive.

I wouldn't say this is too much of a rival for the Clarisonic from what I've seen, however it's a perfect buy for anyone that doesn't already have a Clarisonic and wants to try out a rotating cleansing brush for a fraction of the cost!
