I don’t know about you, but my beloved Clarisonic is languishing, unloved, in my bathroom cupboard. I was absolutely welded to it – I loved the cleanse it gave, used it daily and then, for no particular reason, stopped and went back to a manual cleanse. Perhaps because suddenly the market gave us about a million cleansers to choose from and they became more exciting than the method (so easy to just do a micellar cleanse from the comfort of your sofa) or maybe the charging felt like a hassle – I don’t quite remember.
When the new Sonic Foundation Brush popped through my door, I wondered if I could really be bothered to apply foundation with it, when I’ve no complaints about the oval brushes or the Clinique brush I use at the moment. I think we all know the Clarisonic drill – 18,000 oscillations per minute, etc, etc, but the moment I did, I could instantly see the difference. Being clear, we are talking tiny degrees of difference, but if you’re particular about your base application, you will see it. The term ‘air-brushed’ is over-used but I could happily use it here to describe the finish of a Clarisonic applied base. I used the new Clarins foundation which I’m obsessed with anyway and got a completely seamless, fresh skin, perfected look. Using the oscillating brush does, without a doubt, give a meticulous result that’s better than by brush alone.
If you need reason to resurrect your device, the foundation brush is it. I’d even use to apply liquid or creme blush or highlighter as well although personally, I’d find adding a contour element a challenge. The bristles are made purposely non-porous so as not to absorb your foundation, so theoretically, you reduce wastage – everything you put on the brush ends up on your face. It’s £34 HERE and fits with all Clarisonic devices.
