The Braun Face brush is my favourite alternative to the Clarisonic (mostly because I felt like the Clarisonic was sand blasting my face raw), I reviewed it a few months ago (link here) and have been using it continually since then. I really liked the device to remove my cleanser and makeup in the evenings and there is a new collection of replacement Beauty Brushes from Braun Face which enable you to use your face brush for more things, so why not review them too?
I needed new brush heads as you need to replace them after a while so they are sanitary so I got the Bonus Edition set of replacement brush heads which contains 4 Face Beauty Brushes in one pack - Exfoliation, Cleansing, Extra Sensitive, and the Beauty Sponge so I could try out the different types of heads and see which I liked the best.
Normal Brush (white)
I really like using this brush to remove my cleanser and makeup in the evening. Apparently it works 6 times better than manual cleansing. I definitely feel it gets my face much cleaner than using a flannel or muslin cloth alone.
Extra Sensitive (pink)
This head has longer and denser bristles with rounded tips, it is really soft and non irritating and would be great to use with a foaming cleanser (although I don’t personally use foaming products on my face). I have been using this only when my skin is red or has any irritation and it’s great for a more gentle cleanse.
Exfoliation (blue and white)
This brush has longer outer bristles and shorter inner bristles for a more intense cleansing. Perfect for using before applying a face mask to get rid of dead skin.
Beauty Sponge (white)
This is apparently for massaging creams and lotions into the skin or applying your foundation. This one, I do not like, I tried to apply my foundation and it didn't work at all and I would much rather massage in my moisturiser with my own hands. I wouldn't get these again.
I love the face brush as it is the perfect way for those that are a bit lazy or just always tired at the end of the day to make sure that they remove their makeup thoroughly. It's really helped me stop going to bed with my makeup on after a night out (the only time I do leave it on).
The face brush is the equivalent of an electric toothbrush for your skin. From the new brush head selection box I like the pink sensitive brush head and the blue exfoliating brush head, I can live without the beauty sponge!
All of the brush heads are really easy to wash and keep clean and also super easy to switch over on the face brush, they just click into place and can be removed by pressing a button on the head of the brush and they pop out.
If you want to buy the face brush the cheapest price seems to be on Amazon at around £44.00, you can also buy all of the different types of brush heads on amazon separately or in the mixed box, they are around £12.99 for two Braun replacement brush heads
