Proactiv Cleansing Brush

It is not often that I give anything I review a 5/5. With this Proactiv Cleansing Brush, I just must. Let's start at the beginning, shall we?


Skin Type: Acne Prone, Oily Skin. I have a lot of redness & hyper-pigmentation.


Quick description about Proactiv's 3 Steps. The Cleanser, The Toner & Repairing Treatment. I started using Proactiv when I was 19. My skin was really bad. When I started using it, my skin cleared up dramatically. I am 25 now and still use Proactiv on and off till this day. When I am on with it, it for the most part clears up my skin. But the more important note about it is how soft & calmed my skin look. It cleans the skin very well. When I am off, my skin does start to break out again. Not as bad as I used to be but nonetheless, it breaks out.

I really love Proactiv for the fact that you can buy the 3 Steps (small size) for $25, and they usually throw in something new to try. This last time I received a full size of the Dark Spot Corrector (review to come later). These items are at no extra charge. This cleansing brush was the best freebie I have ever gotten to date.

When I first started using the Cleansing Brush, I was so exited I was using it twice a day. My skin was not happy about that. You are only supposed to use it once a day for a minute each day. So I quit using it a couple of days and then started using it again...anywhere from 1-2 times a day. I know, I am not good with directions but after a while I think I was getting a deeper clean using it twice a day. To start off, I would use it once a day as recommended. A side note: I love exfoliators. I usually do not like to buy a cleanser without them- just an fyi. Proactiv's Step One has exfoliators


How I use it:
Wash my face with Step 1 with my hands for a little less then one minute
add a little but more cleanser (Step 1) to my face
Turn on the Cleansing Brush and slowly go over my whole face lightly for 1 minute.


So I really love the cleansing brush! I do use proactiv and that is the only cleanser I use with it. Do I think that is the only cleanser you could possibly get a deeper clean with using it hand in hand with the cleansing brush? No. If you have a cleanser you prefer, try it with the brush. If you want to try it out without buying the Proactiv 3 Steps, it is somewhere around $20-$30. Please don't. Your getting a way better deal when you buy said package.


Pros:
Free with purchase
Comfortable to use
Water-Proof
Battery Operated
Batteries Included
New Brush Heads are $12
It Works!- It helped my skin a great deal and I got an even deeper clean when I use this baby.

Cons:
There is only one brush head for the cleansing brush
Only one speed. I don't think I need another speed, but some other people may like that.


So for me I can say that this is a 5/5. I really love everything about it. Especially the price! The saying does not hold true that "you get what you pay for" with the cleansing brush. It really is something that I think they could get away with charging much more (let's not let them know that!) If you have never tried Proactiv now is your time to get 4 products and a brush for $30! Just Google "Proactiv brush" and I betcha it will pop up!


I hope I helped you guys making your decision and I hope you try this brush before making a huge investment on a Clairsonic. It's worth it. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below and I will get back to you!

I always meant to get a brush like that! It makes the skin so soft and it's great for deep cleaning and exfoliating skin. I wouldn't even need the proactive :)
