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.

i have found a lovely serum & moisturiser but yet to find a cleanser of any sort i like. would love to try this out now have read this 🙂
I would really love a a Visapure because I am trying to do everything to help my acne before I leave for university – when my skin is bad I find it so hard to talk to anyone as I feel like they can only see my skin. I really want to have the confidence to get to know people!
My Wife has been going on about these, I would deffo earn some points if I won one for her!
My skin never feels really clean. I suffer from large open pores around my nose and the occasional spot and would love to try this out!
Because I’d love my skin to feel young again
I’ve seen these and they sound amazing
I am just now (at 31) starting to discover a beauty regime/ i think I’ve found an exfoliator i like, and possibly a moisturiser, but nothing like this. i would love to try it.
Was interested to read this blog about the Phillips Visapure and i must say i am pleasantly surprised to hear it nearly lives up to the hype of the clarisonic. I myself own a clarisonic but have been severely let down by it as it has broken on me TWICE! The first time i managed to get a replacement sent to me by Clarisonic but when it broke on me again i was gutted. The clarisonic played such a huge role in my daily routine and i was hooked on it. I felt lost without it and my skin just wasnt the same. Now ive lost all confidence in the clarisonic because im now left with a broken one and cannot get it replaced again 🙁 it just stopped working on me and ive been trawling the internet for a similar device. I would LOVE to win your competition as i need to fill the void that the clarisonic left me in 🙂 i was fortunate enough to have the clarisonic gifted to me by my parents last christmas as these devices arent cheap. From your review i think i will love the visa pure!!! x
I DESPERATELY need it because my skin rubs off all over (it’s so weird!) if I don’t exfoliate it and give it a proper scrub so this would be amazing to have!
I really think I need one of these because at the ripe old age of 41, I feel great and I would look great if it wasn’t for my constant spots! They make me feel like a bliddy teenager! and I hate it!
I would love to win to get my skin in better condition!
Looks therapeutic 🙂
I need a Visapure because I like you, I was harsh in my skincare routine which has led to a lot of blotches, scarring and enlarged pores. Hopefully the Visapure will cleanse my way to good skin 🙂 xx
The Visapure is something I am really wanting to try, I’ve recently heard a lot of good things about it and would love to try it on my poor skin, it gets a lot of flack and I’m prone to spots.
I have really rubbish dry skin and don’t have a skin ‘routine’ per se. I’d love to give this a go and see how it leaves my skin feeling!
I’m 20 a second year university student and spots STILL terrorize me, and having this would be great to eliminate them and find some more confidence in myself.
I would love to win this because i would like to present it to my
fiance for every thing she is doing for me, two years ago i
lost my job due to redundancy and in a midlife crisis i decided to try
change my career and do an open university course, in all that time she has supported every thing i am doing, i would like to give her a little some thing to say thank you for every thing and i love her.
I love to try new things – never tried this before.
because my skin has been a bit neglected these past few years and also because my daughter is beautiful but has inherited my oily skin and is prone to spots so I want her to thoroughly cleanse her skin
I tend to not look after my skin but having hit my forties a skincare regime is long overdue.
Because my skin needs a good deep clean!
I am 61 and have always been keen to look after my skin and so far it has worked to a certain extent. With a Visapure added I believe I could be in win a better chance of keeping the wrinkles away without the need of very expensive products. Thanks 🙂
Because I’d love my skin to feel young again
To give my skin a glow 🙂
my skin has really been getting me down lately. im 37 years old and im really starting to notice how much my skin is showing its age. ive also been a bit spotty and got some brown age spots. i would be so happy to win this, hopefully it will give my skin and my confidence a much needed boost.
I have quite greasy skin so I’m prone to pimples, would love to try this out!
i have quite alot of blackheads and this may improve my skin
I suffer from acne and I’d be hopeful that this would help me!
I have just come back from Ibiza and my skin is dried out and in need of revitalisation by the Philips Visapure
I’ve been trying to get one of these on eBay for cheap for so long now but have yet to succeed! My skin is very dry so dead skin cells build up quite quickly and a mechanical cleansing method like this is exactly what my skin needs to scrub away the horrible dry bits and reveal soft smooth skin! I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to win a competition so much!!
My 8 year old daughter told me I didn’t have very nice skin, and she is right, although her honesty was a little crushing! I would like to try the Visapure and hopefully it would improve the appearance of my skin and also my daughter’s opinion of it.
I’d love to win this as, like you, I’ve always favoured products I can “feel working” and I really need to get into the habit of being more gentle with my skin – this sounds perfect!
Amazing giveaway, thank you!!
I would so love to win this! This would probably be the closest this to a spa experience. Plus i know my face would benefit from the visapure greatly!

I am pregnant and my skin has become sensitive and spotty! Its in desperate need of some tlc and id LOVE to be able to pamper it with visapure as i cant justify spending that amount of money on a product when shortly i’ll be needing to spend it on nappies!
I suffer from combination skin which means ugly blackheads and blemishes. I’m currently saving for a face cleansing brush in hope I will have flawless radiant skin for my wedding next September!
I need a visapure to try and clear up my persistent chin spots!
I would Love this as i am a Huge beauty Junkie however lately i am unable to spend time on my beauty regime due to illness this would be perfect as i can cleanse in such fast time and my skin will not suffer. It is very hard at the moment to do my full cleansing regime so winning this would be Perfect for me & my skin. This is such a great gadget would be perfect for everyone

I love that you can use it in the shower so it makes the morning routine really easy.
I been wanting something like this for ages. My skin gets so bad and sometimes I scrub too hard or use to much product. This would be perfect to use.
My nose is a breeding ground!
Parts of my cheek have broken out quite badly and this looks like it would perfect to help me.
I don’t keep very well and find it hard to find the energy to give my skin the proper tlc it deserves. This looks like it could make my life much easier.
My skin is a disaster from getting up at 4.30am every day for work. Help! Fantastic giveaway, thanks for the opportunity. 😉
I really would like something to try to revive my skin – too many late nights trying to catch up on things & too many days running round after 8 kids, is leaving my beauty routine really needing a bit of a boost & my skin needs reviving!
My aging skin could do with some care and attention!
As i’m getting older i’m finding my skin getting more congested, so every little helps 🙂
I’ve heard of this before and always wanted to try it x
I’m 22 and I’m quite insecure about my skin as it’s not really gotten any better since I was teen (and as we all know girls in school can be cruel). Now I have a daughter I’m trying to get savvy with feminine things so she doesn’t make the same mistakes as I did. I joined reddit skincareaddiction but it’s quite daunting and I seem to be missing the basic knowledge. I’ve grasped the fact that I need to exfoliate, but as I use a mitt I’m unsure of the amount of pressure I should be using. This would do some of the thinking for me and seems a nice little gadget. It’s definitely going on my wish list. So thank you for the review. It’s very helpful.
My skin is really congested.
I’m an acne sufferer too and have been since my teens (late 20s now) and I’ve tried everything from peroxide to changing my diet, so I’d love to give the Visapure a whirl too!
my skin is dull and lacks lustre and my pores need tightening too
Although I’m in my 30’s my skin is a mass of combinations. My cheeks are sensitive and ruddy, my nose is full of black heads and massive pores, and my chin is greasy and spot prone. It’s also starting to look very tired and dull! I’d love something that is ideal for all my face to tackle all my problems in one go!
My skin is getting a little older now and am finding my current microdermabrasion system a little harsh, so would love to try this out
5 children have taken their toll and im 40 next year! eek! Please help clean my skin thoroughly and take me from scummy mummy to yummy mummy!
Thanks for the chance to win xx
I would like to try it to see how it would improve my skin
I have medical conditions that cause a great deal of problems with my face skin, and I’ve struggled to find a cleanser that works, to haave this would really help and have my skin look more like that of someone my age rather than that of a teenager.
Hi, how do we know who won the Visapure Comp? Not that I’m desperate for it or anything haha.
I am 35 and my skin has gone awful over the last 4 years, which has destroyed my confidence. I am desperate to try this without having to spend the money x
Thanks Michelle, no problem xx
