Face Cleansing Brush Reviews: Clarisonic, Olay Pro-X, Spa Sonic

Face Brush Faceoff: Which Is Best For You?

Those who are seriously into skin care know all about face brushes (or face robots, as we like to call them). These electronic gizmos promise to remove more dirt, gently exfoliate, and pave the path to better skin. Which one will suit you best? We've tested three, so read on for our rundown.

For the multi-tasker:
The seven-piece Spa Sonic ($65) set includes a rotating brush with four interchangeable brush heads. A large brush exfoliates the body, while its smaller counterpart gently whisks dirt out of facial pores. We didn't get drastic results from the soft facial buffer, but the pumice stone buffed away roughness on our feet amazingly well.

For the frequent traveler:
Mia ($119) is the smallest version of the cult-favorite Clarisonic cleansers, and it's the only one of these three to use sonic technology. Like its larger brethren, Mia uses micro-vibrations to massage the dirt out of your skin. Use it once and you'll be shocked by how much cleaner your face will be.

For the budget-conscious:
Want to take a baby step into more powerful cleansing? Try the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System ($30), whose rotating brush lifts dirt and makeup away quickly. Read our full review for more details.
