If you haven’t already heard much about facial cleansing brushes then your bridal beauty regime is about to be transformed.


What Is a Facial Cleansing Brush?

A facial cleansing brush uses bristles or silicone to get into your pores, to massage your much loved products into your skin and to remove every scrap of makeup at the end of the day. It is a hand-held device with silicone or fibre bristles that can offer a deeper clean than simply using your hands.

Take a look at our favourite facial cleansing brushes – there’s something for every skin need and every budget. If you still have questions about cleansing brushes then skip to the end where you can swot up on all the knowledge you need.

Facial Cleansing Brushes – Your Questions Answered

If you are new to the facial cleansing brush world then take a look through some of the most frequently asked questions about these magic little devices.

Which Facial Cleansing Brush Is Best?

This will depend on your skin needs. If you have sensitive skin then the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Cleansing Device is our favourite, for a deep cleanse we recommend the PMD Facial Cleansing Device or for salon-quality go for the Magnitone BareFaced Facial Cleansing Brush.

Is It Good to Use a Facial Cleansing Brush?

Yes, using a facial cleansing brush is good for a variety of skin problems. If you suffer with oily skin and breakouts then the brush will allow your chosen cleanser to get deeper into your pores. If you are concerned about dull skin then the brush will polish your skin and remove dead cells. If ageing is your worry then a brush also increases the blood flow to your skin and can improve elasticity.

How Often Should You Use a Facial Cleansing Brush?

An everyday cleansing brush is gentle enough to use once a day. If you have stronger settings on your brush then we recommend using those every 3-5 days. If you have sensitive skin then start by using the cleansing brush once daily and see how your skin feels. If you do decide to use the brush once a day, we recommend saving it until the evening so you can remove makeup, dirt and grime from the day.
