We just adore facial cleaning devices! Words like “sonic,” “oscillating” and “deep pore cleansing” get us all excited (in a Rated PG13 sort of way, no doubt)! We all have our favorites, or might just stick to our tried-and-true spinning head we got for our birthday that has sat on our sink counter for years.
So, our beauty editors narrowed down the latest and greatest in facial cleansing devices, which you can find all over from Sephora to your nearest drugstore. Read on to find out our picks! Maybe you’ll meet your next big gadget crush.
“Simply put: nothing says I am f*cking worth it like one of these high-end tools. I have tried other oscillating cleansing systems, but I really like the sexy, slightly phallic design of the Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System brush. It comes with a drying and charging pedestal (not a stand, a pedestal, because we are fancy). This is a surprisingly nice and useful touch that really does make a difference when it comes to remembering to charge your device. An ‘intelligent skin zone timer’ tells you when to move from T-zone to cheeks, because the robot apocalypse is real. The basic model also comes with 2 brush heads and a pretty travel pouch.
The Philips system is gentle enough to use up to twice a day with your daily cleanser. Personally, I have sensitive/combination skin and find that too intense. I use this brush once or twice a week in combination with a gentle exfoliating cleanser, like Philosophy The Microdelivery. This effectively sandblasts your face for spa-level exfoliation right at home. Highly recommended for those mornings when you were trying a little too hard to impress someone, slept in your makeup and need a clean slate.” — Beauty Editor, Mandie Williams
“I LIVE for anything sonic-powered, as I’ve already got more gadgets and gizmos than I know what to do with. But replacing brush heads and batteries can get super-annoying, and not to mention costly. Recently, the Foreo LUNA has changed my sonic skincare perceptions, as the rechargeable, non-brush head tool gently scrubs away dirt and grime without scratching your face.
Simply apply your cleanser like usual, turn on the tool (device has several settings!) and be amazed at how the T-Sonic pulsations remove dead skin cells and any lingering makeup you have on your face. And when you find yourself running low on juice, just charge and wipe down the device until your next use. Yup, darlings, it’s really that easy!” — Beauty Editor, Courtney Leiva
“I’m a huge fan of beauty gadgets. So I was very hopeful when I unboxed the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion Advanced Cleansing System. The set comes with 2 attachments to customize your routine. The first is a microdermabrasion foam head and the other is a bristled facial brush. I will admit, I was a little nervous to try the foam head because my skin has been breaking out lately, but I loved how gentle it was!
Typically when you hear ‘microdermabrasion’ you may think of a rough process that strips your skin. That was not the case with this foam brush at all. I used it on the lowest speed of the 3 options, just to make sure my skin adjusted to the device without irritation. The bristled brush head was very soft and also non-irritating. But, between the 2 brushes, my preference is for the foam head. It left my skin feeling very soft and was gentle enough for my acne-prone skin.” — Beauty Editor, Nicole Marie Melton
“What beauty-obsessed girl doesn’t like a good sonic cleansing? But, to tell you the truth, the one thing that deters me away from using a facial cleansing device daily is the clean-up — especially if you are a clean freak like me. In comes the Michael Todd True Organics SONICLEAR Antimicrobial Cleansing System — the world’s first built-in (and safe) antimicrobial protection brush head that is 99.9% effective at inhibiting the growth of odor- and stain-causing bacteria. Just think of all that dead skin, makeup and leftover gunk our poor brush heads have to endure.
With this one, you won’t have to change your brush head… like ever. Only if you want to, of course. LIFE Antimicrobial Product Protection is permanently built in to the brush using natural plant-based and EPA registered antimicrobial technologies. And with a brush speed at 300 times per second and micro-massage action, it’s ideally gentle and safe for even the most sensitive skin. It’s also fully water-proof too, so you can bring it into the shower or bath when you want to use the larger head to cleanse and exfoliate your body.” — Managing Editor, Theresa Romano
