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.
No 7 beautiful skin cleansing brush
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.
