I’ve been using my Clarisonic Mia2 religiously since December 2013 and my skin has never been better, but when I couldn’t get my hands on my regular brush head (you have to replace the head every 3-4 months) I ended up ordering the deep pore cleansing brush head on a whim instead. It wasn’t one I’d heard much about but my current brush head was way over due a replacement – desperate times folks!
The deep pore cleansing brush head is very different from the regular sensitive brush head that comes as standard with the Clarisonic. For starters, it’s bristles are super soft and so gentle, they glide so smoothly across the skin. I’ve never found the sensitive brush head to be harsh but compared to this one it might as well be a wire brush.
The bristles themselves seem tighter and more compact compared to the sensitive brush head. This surprised me as what came through my post box looked more like a sensitive brush had in a different colour, compared with the image on the feel unique website! I was expecting something looser, fuzzier looking.
The deep pore cleansing brush head is specifically designed for oily skin and large pores, skin that needs a thorough deep down clean. Now, my skin always felt and looked pretty clean but since using this particular brush head it’s looked that bit clearer. Nothing too noticeable, but I think that’s more to do with the fact my skin was in pretty good shape before I started using this one anyway!
I’ve been battling a huge acne breakout over the last week or so and using this brush head has really helped get that minimized and cleared up. I’ve also found this particular brush head cleans those harder to reach areas, like the sides of my nose, much better.
It retails for £21 which is pretty steep, but I managed to pick it up for £18 in the sale. Keep your eyes out because there seems to be sales all the time including the Clarisonic brush heads. If you buy the multi-packs they do work out better value but you need the extra money upfront which isn’t always available for me! I actually think it would be great if you could select which brush head you want to start with when you buy your base unit but that’s just me putting my ideas out there!

Until next time,
