Product Praise ft. The Body Shop [Facial Brush with Lid]

I have been longing to buy the Clarisonic cleansing system for the longest time, but sadly the price tag that comes along with it is too hefty for my liking (ranges from £125 – £155). Due to this reason, I have been on the lookout for a similar gadget that doesn’t come with a heart wrenching price tag. My sad tale continued because, even the products that were similar in size, shape and performance was considerably too expensive for my liking.  So, for a while I gave up this quest to find one until, I stumbled across the Facial Brush from Body Shop. I remember reading great reviews from the world of blogosphere and decided to give it a try. Additionally, Body Shop offered a 40% discount which I couldn’t resist and had to put an order! I justified this purchase because I was able save quite a bit of money from the 40% discount. Ka-ching! 🙂

Initially I was surprised by how small the brush is, because on the website it looked to be of a decent size. Nevertheless, this did not put me off and I remained positive to give it go. Honestly, I was quite amazed by how effective this little gadget turned out to be. The size on this occasion was not a problem for me. No pun intended! I use it as part of my morning skincare routine along with the Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash. It literally scrubs away the entire gunk from the skin and reveals a smoother and fresher skin. The bristles are quite soft and the main benefit of this is that I can control how gentle or hard I would like to scrub my face.

Additionally, the facial brush comes with a handy lid which is perfect as it can be stored away cleanly and safely. It is also very handy to take on holidays and it is fuss free! The full price of this gadget is £4 and it is definitely money well spent! I’m glad I didn’t jump the gun and get myself a Clarisonic or a Foreo LUNA™ mini skincare device. If you are looking for a great exfoliant tool without spending shed loads of money, this Facial Brush from Body Shop is the one.

    Wow! That’s quite a bit cheaper than the clarisonic one! I have super sensitive skin so I don’t want to waste my money on something that may irritate it. However, that’s a great deal!

      Definitely a great deal when you compare the price! 🙂 Let me know how this works out for you!

    I’ve used the Konjac Sponge. It’s quite effective. You might like to try it 🙂

    Well I am SO glad to read this. I have clarisonic on my Christmas list because I wanted one so badly and didn’t want to spend the money, either.. So I may just pop on over to body shop and snag one of these.. Thank you!

        Its not bad! So far so good, but the face wash I use always sticks to the bottom of the brush that’s the only flaw it has LOl


  7. pixistics June 17, 2015 / 9:06 pm

    I’ve used exfoliating pads. I’ve never used a brush before, I’d definitely love to try this one tjougg


    • withtinu June 26, 2015 / 9:06 am

      That sounds good! Let me know how this brush works out for you! 🙂

    Nice! I have something similar from Sephora. It’s a great alternative skin care tool to use in place of the Clarisonic


    • withtinu June 26, 2015 / 9:07 am

      Thanks! Definitely is a brilliant alternative 🙂

    I have the same problem with Clarisonic. As with most beauty products in Dubai, the Clarisonic is grossly over priced ! I bought the Olay cleansing system for about 1/7 of the price and it works amazingly well. It has helped a lot with my acne scars. I am planning a post on it and will let you know once done !


    • withtinu June 26, 2015 / 9:08 am

      Ooh, I haven’t heard about the Olay Cleansing System, but it sounds great! Sure, looking forward to reading all about it 😀

    Well I guess you can call it a dupe . I am a bit worried to use a brush on my fickle skin . I mostly use chemical exfoliator.

    hi, thank you so much for liking my post. i just started my blog and was wondering, is there any tips and tricks you have for growing my blog?

    I bought the clarisonic system last year as a reward to myself for my job. I must say that it’s really changed my skincare routine. my face just doesn’t feel as clean when I don’t use it now. hopefully you’ll be able to give it a try sometime (maybe a great sale or as a holiday present). buuut, this little brush sounds interesting! I will say this about the clarisonic device – it’s a pain to travel with. it’s bulky and since it’s expensive, there’s the worry of losing it during travel too. now I want to try out this brush to see if it would be the perfect substitute for when I’m on the go. thanks for your post!
