Review: No7 Cleansing Brush

09/01/2016

Like the majority of the skincare-conscious world, I've been desperate to try the Clarisonic brushes since their very first rave reviews, but I wasn't so enchanted by the price tag. I was delighted, therefore, to find an affordable alternative in the form of the No7 Cleansing Brush!


At just £15,  and with a lot of good reviews across the internet, this brush was just too tempting to ignore. So, I did what any skint 22 year old would do, and dropped a heavy hint about it just before Christmas! Good old Santa didn't disappoint.

As Boot's own brand skincare and cosmetics range, I've always found No7 to be reliable and good quality. I think part of my trust for Boots comes from the knowledge that the company is heavily pharmaceutical based, and their products are backed up by science and research. I'm not sure how easy it is to get hold of No7 products outside of the UK, although Boots do say that they ship internationally.

Some sources recommend using the No7 Cleansing Brush nightly, but as my skin tends to be quite sensitive, I decided to try every other night. After the very use, I saw a noticeable difference! My skin felt much softer and I could tell that the brush had given my pores a good scrub, but my skin didn't feel raw or irritated like it has previously after using some exfoliants. 

Boots suggest you apply a foaming cleanser to your face before wetting the brush and using it, however I tend to avoid foaming cleansers as they dry out my skin. Instead I've been using my new favourite cleanser, Lush's Ultrabland (look out for a separate review on that soon!) and I find that it works very well with the brush. It's also important to clean the brush after every use to stop product build up and prevent the spread of germs - you don't want whatever's just come off your face going back on with the next use! It's also recommended that you change the head of your brush once every 3-4 months; Boots sell a pack of 2 replacement heads for £8.



The device itself is very simple and sleek, with just one button to switch between the two speeds that the brush offers. So far, I've only used it on the slower speed, as I try to avoid being too aggressive with my skin. This is more than enough to give my face a thorough cleanse, and I actually really like the feel of it on my face!

After just over 2 weeks of using the No7 Cleansing Brush, my skin feels so much healthier. It helps to keep dry the dry skin that I sometimes get around my nose in the winter at bay, but also combats blackheads and oily skin. All without causing any damage or irritation! I must say, I'm pretty damn impressed.

Not having tried any of the Clarisonic brushes, or the other alternatives on the market, I can't say how this compares - BUT I think if you're looking for value for money, you can't really go wrong here. It's a solid product that delivers good results, whilst being kind to your skin. 


Have you tried the No7 Cleansing Brush, or one from another brand? I'd love to know what you thought of it!

  2. I've never tried any of the pricier ones but I've had this brush for a while and think it's brilliant! I have sensitive skin too so tend to use it only 2-3 times per week, but still notice such a difference.
