A simple way to up your skin-care game: Give your face a proper cleanse before moisturizing. That quick morning splash won't cut it. So what is the best way to clean your lovely face and keep it looking glowing and youthful? For a deep yet gentle cleanse, more and more people are trading in their wash rags for brushes, but they can come with a hefty price tag — sometimes upwards of $100. Luckily, we've found the mega-popular Facial Cleansing Brush by Olay Regenerist on sale for just $20 (was $27) at Amazon. And over 19,000 five-star fans are hooked. "Be prepared to say wow," advises one.
Glowing reviews, literally
Amazon's No. 1 bestselling cleansing brush has two speeds: one for daily deep cleaning and another for gentle exfoliation. Just dampen your face and the brush head, apply your fave cleanser to your face, run it for 60 seconds and rinse away dirt, makeup, blackheads, rough spots, etc., to reveal a happier, glowier reflection.
Even shoppers with sensitive skin are loving the results. "This brush is a complete game changer!" raved a five-star fan. "As I’ve gotten older my skin has lacked that glow within and I’ve noticed the bags under my eyes are getting darker. I was skeptical....but I am beyond ecstatic I bought it! My skin looks revived! There’s a natural glow, and my skin is so soft!
Another shopper agreed: "I have used this product for years and I love it. I was in a fire and had some scarring on my face. After six weeks in a coma I was finally able to go home and get my Olay products again. Within two weeks my face was back to normal. I’ll never use anything else on my face. At age 73 I still have the skin of a 35-year-old."
Another happy reviewer wrote, "The brush has really made a positive difference in my skin. I am over 50, and in recent years my skin had started having tiny rough spots and eruptions with flaky tougher skin and actual acne at times. Using this brush on low (due to sensitive skin) once a week with my face wash has greatly reduced all of these problems!"
After cleansing, your skin will be ultra-prepped for your moisturizing routine. "I feel like my moisturizer goes on better after I use this," agreed a fan. "It just feels so good."
Save money, save face
This dermatologist-designed tool rivals those expensive brands, shoppers say.
"Perfect dupe for Clarisonic," declared another devotee. "I'm obsessed with this spin brush and use it everyday!!" Another adds: "After buying more expensive face scrubbers that end up failing after six months, I am so happy to have found...this one. It’s just as effective and only about a third of what I have paid for others."
This battery-operated (with two AA cells) cleansing device is water-resistant and comes with two brush heads. Olay recommends switching out the brush head every three months for optimal performance, though shoppers say they last much longer. (Additional replacement brushes cost just 5 bucks a pop.)
