No 7 cleansing brush - a Clarisonic dupe?

Ever since Clarisonic launched a few years ago, face brushes have become big news. Surprisingly, there has yet to be a high street dupe, so when I found out that No 7 was launching a new cleansing brush, I couldn't wait to put it to the test:

No 7 cleansing brush arrived in a basic blue box, and inside you'll find an electronic brush, a pre attached brush head and 2 AA batteries. I'm terrible with charging things, so I like the fact that the brush is battery operated, although it does mean that the handle isn't waterproof. The brush has 2 rotating speeds, which you can control using the little button on the handle.

To use the No 7 cleansing brush, you simply apply cleanser as normal, then wet the brush head and gently massage into your forehead, cheeks and chin. I found the brush easy enough to use, and afterwards my skin always felt super soft and smooth. A word of caution though, the brush head can be a little harsh so make sure you don't press too hard or go over the same area twice. I did this the first couple of times and it was far too abrasive for my skin.

From what I've read online, Clarisonic has an oscillating rather than rotating action, so No 7 cleansing brush isn't an exact dupe.  I personally wouldn't use this on a daily basis, but if you like strong face scrubs, then this would work well as a weekly deep cleanse/exfoliator. I'm also hoping that in time, No 7 will bring out a range of brush heads, as I'd love to see a softer one for more sensitive skin.

No 7 Cleansing brush, RRP £25, available instores and online at Boots.com

Are you a fan of the Clarisonic? What do you think about the new No 7 cleansing brush?

  1. Ooooh looks interesting! I have the Sigma version but found it to be rather harsh on my skin :( The bristles on the 'soft' brush head were sratchy :( Really want to try the Clarisonic but nice to know there is another alternative out there :) xx

    1. Same, I really want to try a Clarisonic too, I've heard so many good things, and it would be interesting to compare any differences between the two. This did feel a little harsh at times, but as long as you don't press too hard it should be ok x

  7. This is a much more friendly price than a Clarisonic! I tried one last year but didn't really notice any results so I sent it back for a refund as for that price I expected a lot more. I'll certainly give this one a go when it appears in the shops xx
