9 Cleansing Brushes to Use Now That Clarisonic Is Going Out of Business
In light of recent news that the sonic brush cleansing brand Clarisonic is going out of business, fans are wondering what they're going to do when their current device kicks the bucket or it comes time to replace the brush head. With the brand's last-chance 50 percent off sale at all retailers, people have frantically bought replacement devices and heads, rending it impossible to find Clarisonic products for sale anywhere.
Luckily, Clarisonic isn't the only brand that sells smart cleansing devices and gadgets. There are a variety of options on the market that preform similar functions. The appeal of a cleansing brush, both automatic and manual, is that it helps you achieve a deeper clean and gently exfoliates the surface of your skin in the process; there's no denying the satisfaction you get from using a cleansing tool as opposed to just your hands.
From standard brushes with bristles to all-silicone options, and devices with a mix of both, we have no doubt that fans of Clarisonic will be able to find a replacement product to fill the void in their beauty routine in no time.
To help you discover the next best thing, we rounded up the best cleansing brushes for you to shop ahead.
Foreo Luna 2 for Combination Skin
Whether you have normal, oily, combination, or sensitive skin, Foreo has a cleansing brush specifically designed for you. The Foreo Luna 2 for Combination Skin ($169) helps deeply cleanse your skin while improving the appearance of pores and fine lines. Another bonus: the silicone brush doesn't harbor bacteria like your traditional bristles might, so it tends to be more hygienic.
Michael Todd Beauty Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush
The Michael Todd Beauty Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush ($89) is a close cousin to the Clarisonic device with three settings: cleansing, firming massage, and serum infusion.
