Purasonic *

Lately, I've been really skincare-savvy…obsessed with perfecting my skin for #nofilter selfies. For those of you who have gotten to know me, you may already know that my skin is notoriously dry and flakey. Over the past year, I've been actively testing every known product under the sun to find products and a routine that works for me…and for my wallet.

The Purasonic is a facial cleansing device that uses sonic technology to deep clean the skin. It oscillates over 300 times per second and is fully rechargeable and completely waterproof, so yes, it's shower friendly! It's proven to be 9 times more effective than manual cleansing and claims to remove all dirt, oil, make up and grime. The Purasonic has 3 speeds and a built-in timer. The timer designates 20 seconds for the forehead, 20 seconds for the chin area and 10 seconds for each cheek before it automatically turns off.

For those who have not yet experienced the luxury of a sonic cleanser, I implore you to invest in one. to use this I normally lather on a facial cleanser and work the Purasonic in small, circular motions. This nifty device effectively exfoliates dead skin, stubborn dry patches and flakes. Not only does it leave the skin smooth and soft, it also removes dirt, blackheads, deep cleanse pores and removes make up residue left over (…even after throughly removing everything with a make up remover).

The look of the Purasonic device is sleek, almost identical to it's well-known competitor. It feels solid, durable and handles pretty well. I use it at least once every couple of days and every time I put this baby to work, I notice a dramatic difference. It rejuvenates and retexture the skin, and most impressively, penetrates deep within the pores to extract and buff away dirt and blackheads. I normally follow up with toner afterwards and apply an ample amount of serum and/or soothing moisturiser…and then I'm ready for make up.

The Purasonic pack includes a Purasonic cleansing device, a gentle brush head for sensitive skin, an everyday brush head for normal skin, a waterproof stand, a magna link charger a USB cord and a 100v-240v power pack. The everyday brush head was unfortunately too firm, dense and abrasive for my skin (dry, slightly sensitive), but the gentle brush head worked amazingly the bristles are shorter and  still quite dense but it felt a lot more gentle on the skin. The magna link charger was a little disappointing, unfortunately. It would weakly attach to the device and would often disconnect with with a slight bump.

There are 4 types of replacement brush heads for this device; deep cleanse brush head, everyday brush head, gentle brush head and a soft-silk brush head. It is recommended that you replace the brushes every 90 days.

Compared to it's other competitors, I'd say the Purasonic performs equally well and is a lot more desirable price-wise. It retails for $99 on their website or at Target, Priceline and and the replacement brush heads are available for $19.95 each.

  1. The colour of that is beautiful! I have the Magnitone and it makes such a difference to my skin.

  2. I have this one too and I find almost no difference in its performance compared to the Clarisonic.
    Love it! x

    1. Omg yes! They're almost, if not identical in performance and look but the purasonic definitely wins when it come to affordability. I also heard the brush heads could be fitted onto the clarisonic device and vice versa!
