The Clarisonic cleansing brush has been a staple in my skincare routine for years. This magical beauty tool makes your cleansers work harder, pushing them up to six times deeper into your skin. Cleansing is the most important part of your skincare regime and Clarisonic’s brush just makes it all the more thorough. The oscillating brush not only cleanses but also helps exfoliate your skin, keeping it fresher-looking.

There are no magic creams that get rid of fine lines and wrinkles – exfoliating is the only thing that will reduce them – so a good cleansing routine and a Clarisonic really helps keep skin in good condition. When travelling I use Clinique’s brush instead, as it’s more compact and easier to pack. While not as powerful as Clarisonic, Clinique’s version is a fraction of the cost so would be a good introduction to the world of brush cleansers. The Clarisonic starts at €220 for the Mia FIT, and goes up to €315, so it’s an investment, but in my opinion totally worth it. Clinique’s brush starts at €89, but if you go online to Brown Thomas you will find one on sale for €59.63 right now.
