Okay, so I’m a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to using a sonic brush. It wasn’t until late last year that I started using one and let me tell you that I am on a Kim K level of obsessed.
Admittedly when it comes to beauty, I’ve always been the can’t-be-bothered type. Sure, I’ll try and follow a skin care routine, but only to fall out of it after coming home at 3am, tired, sleepy, and extremely lazy. However, despite being super groggy, I always, ALWAYS, make sure that I hit the shower and clean my face. Washing is an obsession and nothing feels more refreshing than having squeaky clean skin. But even as I lather my face with an icy cool men’s facial wash, I still can’t help but feel like I’m not getting that super clean feeling after a bath.
Enter the sonic brush.

At first try I immediately felt the difference as my skin felt smoother but after a few days my forehead began to break out. Gasp! But then I came across this article on Allure saying that it’s normal for skin to break out at the beginning as the dead skin cells being sloughed tend to jam your pores. You see, with frequent use, your pores become more open and there will also be less dead skin cells to exfoliate, causing breakouts to lessen and eventually leaving you with clearer and smoother skin.
Overall, I would say that it’s a good investment and a quick way to pamper yourself, too. Now I wash my face with it twice a day and my skin has never felt cleaner. The breakouts cleared up and my skin feels tighter. It’s like getting a facial sans the spending!
