Have you been curious about investing in a facial cleansing brush? If you’ve been having issues with your skin, using just your hands and a cleanser might not be enough. A cleansing brush can definitely go places that your fingers can’t go, and they’ve been around for long enough that there’s now one for every skin type and budget.

At only $40 on Amazon, this cleansing brush will have your skin and your wallet thanking you.

Coming from Proactiv, this is a great brush if you have oily or acne-prone skin.

Which, by the way, Clarisonic can help you out with as it will connect you to an app that provides skincare routines! If you choose the smart option the brush will sync up to your chosen routine, if not there are two cleansing modes you can choose from. It also comes with a guided timer which will tell you exactly where to put the brush on your face. And it comes with a stand-up charger for clean and easy storage.
Cleansing Brush Tips
If you do buy a cleansing brush, make sure you’re giving it routine maintenance. It’s what’s best for your skin and the brush itself. Wash your brush after each use to keep it clean, and change out the brush head monthly. To make sure the bristles won’t be too rough on your face, test out your brush on another area with delicate skin, such as your inner forearm. If your skin turns red, the bristles are too stiff and you should find a gentler brush.
