I have been dying to share this new life-changing product, but was sworn to secrecy until it officially launched. Well it has launched! Introducing the NEW Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush – a dermatologist developed, Swiss engineered cleansing innovation that will transform your skin. In fact, it’s a skin changer.
Clinique (the first dermatologist developed skin care brand) specifically designed the cleansing brush to work synergistically with their custom-fit 3-Step Skin Care System. The Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush gently delivers a new kind of clean that helps remove the dirt and pollution that settles in to and damages the skin. The result is your cleanest, healthiest skin ever. Skin looks instantly smoother and more radiant, pores are purified.
Like all Clinique skin care, the Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush was developed with the expertise of our guiding dermatologists. Their recommendations—tilted head, two types of bristles (35,000 tufted bristles)—were Swiss engineered to create a precision instrument (10,000 sonic movements per minute) that is a pleasure to use.
For more than 40 years, the 3-Step Skin Care System developed by Clinique’s founding dermatologist Dr. Norman Orentreich remains a cornerstone of the brand. Who else has a memory of buying this, their first skincare regimen with their mother? Well it all begins with the first step – cleansing. Skin is better prepared to repair itself when it is cleansed of dirt, oil and pollution. Clean skin is less likely to produce clogged pores, meaning less frequency and severity of breakouts and blemishes. And clean skin means a stronger, healthier skin barrier that looks more radiant with fewer visible dry lines because it is able to accept moisture more effectively. Therefore this brush is the safe and gentle answer for all skin types – both young and aging skin.
The Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush has a unique brush design. The oval-shaped brush head was specifically designed to allow targeted cleansing in the hard-to-reach, contoured areas of the face including around the nose, hairline and chin. Two strengths of rounded bristles deliver a gentle, custom cleansing experience. The pale green, angled tip consists of firmer, shorter bristles that allow for easier and more efficient cleansing of areas prone to more oil production and clogging, like the t-zone. The white bristles on the body of the brush are softer and less firm, designed to target the larger more delicate areas of the face like the cheeks where there are less oil glands. The sonic vibrations combined with the unique brush configuration gently massages skin, loosening stubborn dirt and oil more effectively than hand washing, improving the overall health and condition of skin.
The compact design makes the brush portable and easy to use, while the waterproof design allows for use in the shower or at the sink. The ergonomic handle is easy to grip, while also allowing the brush to lay flat to dry. The automatic timer turns the brush off after 30 seconds, the appropriate amount of usage time for most skin types to begin using the Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush. When comfortable, build up to 1 minute of use, twice daily. The brush comes with a small charger where a single charge has a 3 hour battery life, lasting for an extended period of time without recharging (which makes it perfect for travel too). The LED indicator on handle indicates when battery is low.
I have been using the cleansing brush for a few weeks now, but I honestly felt and saw a huge difference in my skin after just one use! It was truly amazing. The Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is clinically proven to deliver skin that is smoother and more radiant, with fewer clogged pores. Skin can better breathe and is more receptive to skin care treatments to follow, allowing treatment products to better absorb into the skin and perform better. Also be sure to use it on your neck (which is usually overlooked) and don’t use it with cleansing oils, balms or exfoliants. It’s meant to be used with a cleanser.
The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is currently only available at Clinique.com. It will launch nationally at Clinique counters August 15, 2014. The cost is $89.50 for the brush with charger and $26 for replacement brush heads (which should be replaced every 3 months).
Get this brush! It’s better than any other brush on the market today. I promise…it really is a skin changer. Oh and be on the lookout for upcoming holiday gift sets for Holiday 2014. I can’t think of a better gift for your BFF’s. They will love you forever!
