Amy Antoinette - A Motherhood & Lifestyle Blog: Philips VisaPure Facial Cleansing Brush

Philips VisaPure Facial Cleansing Brush

The VisaPure Facial Cleansing Brush is the latest beauty gadget to be released by Philips. The rotating brush claims to cleanse 10 times more effectively than manual cleansing, whilst remaining just as gentle and helping improve skin tone and texture. Using this daily should lead to an improvement in the absorption of skin care products and dead skin cells are removed by exfoliation. I love the design of Philips VisaPure. The nude colour looks feminine yet unobtrusive, and the glossy, high shine finish gives it a touch of luxe. A very sleek and stylish gadget to keep in the bathroom!

I'm guilty of being very lazy when it comes to my skincare routine. Although I own a multitude of skin care products - some luxury, some budget - I seem to keep reverting back to the very basic regime of massaging Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion into my skin and then removing it with a baby wipe. As much as I love the results of the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, I just find it to be too time consuming and messy, so this one minute gadget appealed to me.

The VisaPure gives the same exfoliation and baby soft skin a hot cloth achieves without the fuss. I love how quick and easy using this is. I don't get water running down my arms, I don't need to run the tap to reach just the right temperature for repeated rinsing and cleansing - I simply apply cleanser to my face, wet the brush head and switch it on. There are two speed settings - one for normal cleansing, and a faster speed for deep cleansing. It features a one minute timer, pausing shortly every 20 seconds to indicate the need to move the brush to a new skin zone. When one minute has passed, the device automatically switches off to prevent over treatment. 
It's also waterproof, so it can be used in the shower - even better for time saving. 

Two brush heads are included with the VisaPure - one for normal skin, and one specifically designed for sensitive skins. They also offer an exfoliation brush which can be purchased separately, for when you need to target any problem areas. The VisaPure charges fully in 6 hours, giving 30 minutes of cordless use, so depending on how often you use it, it only needs to be charged one to two times per month. 

As a newly released facial cleansing brush, it's bound to draw comparisons with the Clarisonic. I haven't tried the Clarisonic myself, so I can't say if they give the same results, but in terms of price, Philips VisaPure is competitive. Both devices have a similar price point, but the VisaPure replacement brush heads cost £7 compared to Clarisonic's £21. Aesthetically, I prefer the VisaPure. It looks sleek and sophisticated whereas the Clarisonic looks a little clunky in comparison. I imagine the VisaPure would also be better for travelling as it would take up less space in a wash bag. 

I love this new addition to my skincare routine. My nose and chin in particular were problem areas for me, and could feel quite rough and 'bobbly' at times. Using the VisaPure daily leaves me with soft, smooth skin - so much better for applying makeup for a flawless finish. In terms of time, it's even quicker to use than my old cleansing routine. I'm a big fan!

Philips VisaPure Facial Cleansing Brush is priced at £150 and is available to buy from Boots

  1. Looks quite interesting! Great post!

    I'm hosting a giveaway, I'd love it if you checked it out! xo

  2. Looks lovely, much nicer than the Clarisonic, which I think looks quite childish almost. I'd love to try one of these, sounds amazing! xx

  3. Hi,
    Great post. I love this brush for its exfoliating effect. Thanks for sharing!

  4. That's a really nice way to take of your face :)

  5. I've never tried one before but I've been thinking about getting the Clarisonic for ages, but now that this one is out I might looking into getting this instead!

  6. Looks interesting, if you don't mind me asking, how does it handle? It looks a little cumbersome to work with?! xx

    1. No, not at all! It's very slender so easily fits in the palm of your hand, and it's at just the right angle to move around your face. Fool-proof and easy to use! xx

    2. Hi
      Would you say this is good for blocked pores and spot prone skin?

  7. Love the look of this, and the nude colour is gorgeous!

  8. This definitely isn't for me. I'm also lazy with my skincare, so I couldn't warrant a £150 spend - because if I didn't use it, I'd be constantly reminded of it. Interesting post though. x

  9. Thank you, I have recently been searching for info about this topic for a while and yours is the greatest I have came
    upon so far. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure about the

  10. This looks interesting but I had SUCH a bad experience with my Clarisonic that I'm afraid it would make me break out...

  11. This looks great. I have a clarosonic and I love it but its quite heavy and not very good for travelling.

    This one looks much lighter!


  12. Looks great, if not a little hard to handle! But sounds like it may be worth a try

  13. I guess that this is basically just another clarisonic? I personally don't understand how these help, but if I saw proof then I might :-) definitely worth a try though!


  14. Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a
    collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done
    a outstanding job!

    Here is my blog vapornine

  15. Really want to try this!

    Oh and I'm running a giveaway, if you want to pop over and have a nosey! Giveaway here

  16. i've heard a lot about the lately.. but i don't know, its kinda pricey =/

  17. I have the DermaNew which I do love, but this one really does look much more feminine and sleek, and so much less fuss! I think I'd be more worth the £150 price tag too since like you said it's easier to travel with than others available like the Clarasonic, so it'd get much more use!
    I'm very tempted just by your post, but I'll wait for a couple more to pop up then maybe I'll treat myself. It looks so much more appealing than my clunky DermaNew, and the price for replacement heads will save me a nice amount! :)

  18. I recently bought the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush so far so good. I don't have any complaints at the moment. It does have a 2 year warranty, if anything goes wrong I will be nipping back to Boots. lol
