Firstly, couple of apologies; I’ve had this brush for absolutely ages, but I wanted to do a review with a competition which I couldn’t do until I’d done all the other competitions I had lined up and go them all sorted and closed, which took longer than expected! Secondly, sorry I haven’t launched another competition sooner, but I’m hoping to make it up to you guys this month by launching two *amazing* competitions, the first of which is this one…but before we get there, let’s have a look at my thoughts and review of the Philips Visapure.
The Visapure is a Facial Cleansing Brush aimed at improving the effectiveness of our cleansing routine. Obviously the “C” word needs to get a mention (Clarisonic! What is WRONG with you??) as the obvious comparisons are going to occur, so I thought I’d jump right in and say that it’s a kind of gentle, more beautifully presented take on the Clarisonic, but that isn’t to say it’s any better or worse, just different enough to warrant its own market.
As I said, it’s a stunner to look at, managing to be both function and technical looking, whilst still maintaining a feminine prettiness. It stands easily which I personally really like as I find the Clarisonic a bit clunky to store between uses, and it lasts for 30 uses between charges.
It’s very gentle which to me makes me ever so slightly favour the Clarisonic as I really like to feel like my skin is being treated. I’ve come a long way as I use to be quite brutal in my approach to skincare which is quite typical of acne sufferers – we want to feel things working so we favour harsh products and densely granulated manual exfoliators – as now I only use chemical exfoliators and I’m quite careful with what I use, but I still need to feel that slight buffing sensation from a cleansing brush.
However, I can say safely that I’m in the minority with the desire for the aforementioned sensation, as most people would prefer the feeling of skin that has been gently yet very effectively cleansed, and if that’s the case then the Visapure is definitely a product to give a shot, especially as the one HUGE plus over the Clarisonic is that the replacement brush heads (available in Normal, Sensitive and Exfoliating) are priced between £8 and £12, making them considerably cheaper than the replacement heads for the Clarisonic. This is, without a doubt, the best rival to the Clarisonic available on the market today, and in some ways it betters the Clarisonic – certainly aesthetically and, after the initial outlay of £150, economically – but I still find myself reaching for the Clarisonic over the Visapure when performing my skincare routine.
