I spotted this in the US a while back, but it’s not coming to the UK til September. However, I’ve had a little play with it and – it’s not bad at all! Before we make any comparisons to the obvious (Clarisonic) it’s not really claiming to be anything like it. It certainly doesn’t have any sonic element.
However, the brush (which just goes round and round (am sure there is a technical term for that!) as opposed to oscillating) is actually quite impactful and does dig away at grime and make-up. It also leaves skin feeling nicely smooth. It’s been tested against ‘other leading brush cleansers’ using UV light to check how clean skin is, and as I understand it, has performed better than others in the market.
Things you need to know: you can use it in the shower, it’s much smaller than others and less heavy so it’s more portable, and you can use it with any cleanser although it comes with a small tube of Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser (which I haven’t tried). The downside is that unless you’re using re-chargable batteries, it does require further outlay on batteries and I haven’t tested for battery longevity. It will cost around the £40 mark.
**sometime later, I realise the term for going round and round is rotating. more coffee please…
