Do Cleansing Brushes Really Work?

Anything that makes your life easier and your skin healthier gets four stars around here—that’s why we like the Clarisonic cleansing brushes. The best part is that they’re programmed to operate for one full minute. This is the amount of time required to break down sebum, which Dr. Obagi calls “the enemy of healthy skin.”

Many ZO users like to use the Clarisonic with our Hydrating Cleanser. Used in combination, the two get 5 or 6x as much dirt, cosmetics, and oils off of your skin. For fighting acne, blackheads, whiteheads, and large pores, that’s powerful.

The Clarisonic is pricey—about $150-$225. If you want to save some money, make it a habit to cleanse with your fingertips for one full minute—both in the morning and at night. Be sure to rub your face vigorously as this works to stimulate the skin cells.

If sebum and dirt are the enemy of healthy skin, Clarisonic (or a self-timer) and our Hydrating Cleanser may very well be your best friends.
