For a while now I have been using toothbrush to exfoliate. Although this technique is great it takes a while to cover your entire face. The toothbrush is perfect for small areas such as around your nose.
I decided that I needed to treat myself and step it up a notch. I was not going to shell out all of that dough for a Clarisonic (I'm a student afterall). When I am going to buy something I make sure I shop around for the best deal that suits my needs. In other words, I am not an impulse buyer. So after some hunting around on the internet I found and decided on this...
The brush side: The brush is what I call medium firmness. You may want to use it less often especially if you have sensitive skin. Maybe if you have normal skin every two days and every week if you have sensitive skin. Do what you feel your skin can handle. (That is always the key). Also a little product goes a long way; you only need a pea size amount to get crazy suds!
The silicone side: This is interesting. I can honestly say I haven't seen a silicone scrubber before. The claim of the pink side, is to "deeply invigorate" the skin. When you use this side it kind of feels like someone is rubbing your face with a latex glove. It does not really feel like there is any invigorating going on, but it may still be working. I feel that it is a bit cumbersome to put such a delicate scrubber on such a big tool. Unlike the bristles it can not contour around your face because it is basically flat. I think the pink side would work much better if it was detachable or separate.
The brush side is great for exfoliation.
The pink side may be great for those with super sensitive skin.
Comes with a cover for the brush bristles (to keep things sanitary).
Maximizes product usage (you don't need to use much product).
Cheaper than other alternatives.
Brush may be to harsh for some.
Pink side may be too delicate for some.
Cumbersome at times.
Overall: I think this is a great product for those of us on a budget. Although using the pink silicone side in small areas is difficult to impossible, the brush is great.
