Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush
 
As much as I love makeup, call me weird but I look forward to getting home and taking it off each evening. There's no nicer feeling than a clean face in my opinion! I always use a soft flannel or a Konjac sponge to wash my face and remove every trace of makeup, but lately I've been using the Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush* in my second cleanse. It's designed to help cleanse the skin, removing all traces of dirt and makeup which you can't always remove with a flannel.
 
This isn't a new concept in any way as cleansing brushes have been around a while thanks to the Clarisonic, but where the Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush does differ is that's affordable. At £35 this is one not to overlook. It comes with two brush heads which are really soft, so perfect for all skin types. The replacements are also only £8 for two. Bargainacious. Yes that really is a word, well one I always use anyway.
 
I was really pleased to see that it's battery operated so as soon as I took it out of the box it was ready to go. This was one of my bug bears with the Clarisonic which I also own. The Clarisonic needs to be charged for hours so if it runs out of juice mid cleanse it's game over.
 
The Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush has two speeds so you can start on the slower setting and work your way up. As the brush head is really soft I skipped straight to the second speed. Risk taker I know. The brush head is about a third smaller than that of the Clarisonic, but I really like that it's a bit smaller as it provides more precision around the contours of my nose and I don't end up with cleanser in my hair. The brush doesn't have a timer which I'd say is its only downfall as it feels so nice on the skin you could be tempted to overdo things. I try and time it myself and spend about 15 seconds on my forehead, chin and each side of my face.
 
I've been using the cleansing brush a few times a week now for the last fortnight or so and my skin feels nice and soft and most importantly clean after use. I don't find it too harsh on my sensitive skin and I haven't had any breakouts. My skin is super smooth and I've found that my skincare is absorbing better now and makeup is sitting a lot nicer. If you're in the market for a cleansing brush but are put off by the price of the Clarisonic, I'd highly recommend giving this one a look see.
 
Have you used a cleansing brush before and would you be tempted by this one?
