* 5 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 skin care 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. 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.

2. 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.
