How’s your daily routine going? I would guess that if you’re like most men you don’t think twice about how you wash your face–maybe you don’t even wash regularly at all. But did you know that there are specialized high-tech tools for your face? There is even a growing market for facial cleansing tools just for men! For those of you who use products on your face, these tools ensure that what you’re paying for will penetrate your skin more deeply and help your lotion, serums or whatever work more effectively. They also have massaging and anti-aging settings. If you’re a man or woman whose interested in a more specialized skin care routine, check out our list of the 3 best new cleansing brushes and devices that could be a part of your new routine. My favorite might surprise you!
Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush for Men and Women
Along with specialized brush heads for women and acne, Clinique has developed a brush specifically for men’s skin that cleans more effectively than ordinary hand washing. There are two bristle types that work the separate areas of the face and it also preps your skin for a more comfortable shave. Clinique also boasts that it will make your skin look more energized but that could be open to interpretation! They encourage replacing the brush head every 3 months and at $26 each that could create some sticker shock for those who don’t normally use anything but a bar of soap on their face (or less!).
LUNA has an existing brush for men and women individually called the LUNA 2 but the play is a new introduction in their line. The LUNA play is another ‘sonic’ skin cleanser that comes in 7 colors and unlike the LUNA 2 which is the size of a small donut, play is macaroon sized or slightly wider than a quarter. This means you’re getting a device with the same features and abilities for a fraction of the price. This soft, silicone brush has two zones for the differing areas of the face. An added bonus of LUNA devices is that they don’t require replacing any parts and they have rechargeable batteries which last up to 6 weeks.
Clarisonic Alpha and Mia FIT
Clarisonic has long been a leader in the facial cleansing tool department and their two new introductions are worth a try. Alpha Fit for men and Mia FIT for women are both smaller and more travel friendly than the original Mia and Mia 2 which have retained their popularity for years. The Alpha is specially designed for men’s skin, beard cleaning and enabling closer shaves. Clarisonic’s patented technology ensures that your Alpha produces more than 300 movements per second! It is also rechargeable and waterproof. Alpha’s brush heads are close in price to the Clinique brand at $27 and they are also recommending you replace them every 3 months. With all this technology, you may never want to touch your face with bare hands again!
Oh yes, if you’re still wondering, my favorite is the LUNA!
