I have been eyeing up the Clarasonic for quite some time now. With amazing reviews it seemed like something that is a must have for everybody. But if you are like me, the £175.00 price tag is rather off putting. And that is when I discovered the incredible No7 cleansing brush, which is a high street dupe for the Clarasonic. And even better, I bought this on sale at £15.00 rather than £25.00 from Boots.
For those of you who are looking for the next best things, this is it. It is incredible, affordable and leaves great results. It is packed nicely, and has a plain white case with the No7 logo on the back of the brush head, giving a contemporary and timeless feel to the product. Unlike the Clarisonic which is charged electronically via a plug, this product is battery operated. Two AA batteries are supplied with the product for £15.00. The product has removable brush heads which are simple to clean and swap when necessary.
The Cleansing brush has two speeds. Medium and Fast. We find the first medium setting is the best for our skin, as the faster setting feels rather 'scratchy' against out skin, and for those of you with sensitive skin this would not be a good feeling. The first setting after cleansing leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, and more clean than it ever has been. We were rather sceptical about how much product it would remove and how great our skin would feel afterwards, but it is a fantastic product which in time will be reflected in the condition of our skin. It minimises the appearance of blackheads and large open pores, as well as reducing oil levels too.

The No7 advisor informed us to use a foaming cleanser with this as it is most suitable for our combination skin type. Click here for a separate review on the no7 foaming cleanser review.

As we have never owned a Clarasonic I cannot directly compare results. The only disadvantage to the No7 Cleansing Brush is that it is battery operated, and the brush head could be softer to enable the faster setting to be used. These are features that may be more refined in the Clarasonic, but for those of you on a budget looking for the next best thing....look no further than the boots no7 counter for the cleansing brush is which is currently on  offer for £10 pounds less than the normal retail price.
