* 6 effective alternatives to the Clarisonic Mia 2
* Devices for clearer skin and better product absorption
* Includes multi-attachment models at gentle prices
The Clarisonic face cleansing brush was inspired the Sonicare toothbrush, the top-seller of its category in 2001. Available since 2004, the Clarisonic brush utilizes much of the same technology as its forebearer, such as sonic vibrations and zero-damage brushes. These features help promote tighter pores and allow for better skincare absorption. The Clarisonic rose to popularity after Oprah featured it on her show, and top beauty publications lavished it with awards. To date, Clarisonic’s most popular model has been the Mia 2, a compact version of the original. As the device’s popularity crested, competitors began offering more affordable alternatives to the original.
Here, we’ve found 6 alternatives to the Clarisonic cleansing brush that are just as effective – and lighter on the wallet.
1. Roselle Microdermabrasion Facial Cleaning Exfoliating Brush
An amazing value at $10.99, this device comes with 4 different attachments for total body care. It comes with the classic brush option, but also a sponge attachment. A larger brush and pumice attachment work to slough away dead skin anywhere on your body and will tackle calloused feet.
2. EterBeauty Cleansing Brush
This complete face and body cleansing system comes equipped with a waterproof two-speed motor and 5 different brush attachments for a full range of exfoliation cleaning. The sponge and soft-brush options are ideal for a gentle wash, while a stiffer brush and pumice can be used for a deeper clean or rough skin removal.
3. Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System
You’ll find the most resemblance to the Clarisonic Mia 2 with Olay’s ProX brush- and at a fraction of the price. A 2-speed motor delivers deep-pore cleaning vibrations, and unlike the Clarisonic, this device uses double AA batteries instead of a corded charger.
4. Fancii 6-in-1 Electric Facial Cleansing Brush
Offering the most extensive range of attachments of our selections, Fancii’s electric cleansing brush gives you 6 ways to clean and exfoliate. There are 3 options for the face, including a silicone bristled brush and a nubby massager, plus choices of foam, pumice and body brush.
5. Glam Fields 3-in-1 Waterproof Skin Cleansing Brush
With a light weight and slim design, this rechargeable version is an ideal companion for travel. The bold pink and black design isn’t too hard on the eyes, either. It comes with 2 attachments and is equipped with a 2-speed setting.
6. OKACHI GLIYA Electric Rotating Facial Cleansing Brush
360-degree rotation delivers a deep clean that’s on par with more expensive models. It comes with 2 zero-damage brush heads – one for normal skin and one for sensitive skin. It’s a great option for those with combination skin, or when you just need a gentler clean.
