The Proactiv Deep Cleansing Brush allows you to get a deep clean daily with the brush and a daily cleanser. It works your selected cleanser into the skin to wash off accumulated sweat and makeup from the day.
The facial cleansing brush is designed for daily use but is not recommended for more than once a day. It features two speeds, high and low, to allow to you to control how deeply your skin is cleansed and adjust it for your skin type. This setting is controlled by the on/off switch. The face cleansing brush has no other settings but the two available settings offer a customized approach to your skincare. This brush is not designed to be used around your eyes. The brush rotates 360 degrees continuously to wash your face. However, since the bristles are fairly durable, it can be used to brush your face, knees and elbows.
Like the Sirius Sonic, this electric face brush runs off of two AA batteries. This helps when you need to replenish its power source quickly but adds to the overall cost in the long run. Since it is battery-operated, no cord is used, which adds to the overall mobility of the device. It is water resistant, allowing you to use it in the shower or bathtub. However, it is not waterproof and is not designed to be fully submersed in water; otherwise, the motor damage will be permanently damaged.
Along with the main unit, the set includes user instructions and the first set of batteries. The face cleansing brush is replaceable as it experiences normal wear and tear over time, and Proactiv recommends changing the brush head every 30 days. After that, you can purchase new brush heads. When using your normal skincare product, apply it to your face first and not the brush. Maintaining the brush head with this model requires a little bit of work, with it needing to be detached, rinsed, and air dried between uses. The rest of the device only needs to be wiped down with a damp cloth.
Instead of a warranty, the facial cleansing brush comes with an unconditional money-back guarantee. The manufacturer promises results or you will receive a refund if you are dissatisfied. The Proactiv brand stipulates that the money-back guarantee on its products is a maximum of 60 days.
The Proactiv Deep Cleansing Brush is designed for use with Proactiv's cleansers and is delicate enough to be used daily in a variety of trouble areas, even skin prone to acne. The requirement for AA batteries increases the overall cost over time and there is a bit more maintenance to do with the brush head than other facial brushes.
