"Your face needs brushing, too." I have heard this line too many times, and I decided to try it. I was talking to a friend about aging gracefully, and how I would want my skin to not have wrinkles for as long as it takes.
For years, I have been using Clean & Clear's Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub. I love how it leaves a cool feeling on my face. I use it daily, and so far, I have no problems with it. I started dreading wrinkles and I felt I'm not doing enough. Yes, I put a little moisturizer now and then when my face feels tight. I use Olay Total Effects.
Then, I was contemplating to buy Clarisonic. I was hesitant though because I wasn't sure how my skin will react to face brushing (for lack of a better term), and $100+ to shell out for a product that I might hate is not something I had in mind. I wanted to try Pro-X, since our family uses Olay all the time. I figured that for a fraction of Clarisonic's price, it is a good start.
A good friend No, scratch that -- a great friend gifted me with Olay's Pro-X. She's been raving about it. She said it was better than Neutrogena's Wave.
I tried it, and I am liking it! The box comes with the Pro-X cleansing system, a starter Pro-X exfoliating renewal cleanser, and get this -- batteries! Don't you just love how battery-operated things come with free, ready-to-use batteries already? Although, I had a hard time opening the cover to put the batteries in. I had to ask my husband to take the cover off. I guess that's good because the thing is water-resistant -- and that means you can use it in the shower.
The Pro-X system also comes with this replaceable cleansing brush. I love how the bristles of the brush is soft on my face. The brush rotates, and you choose from 2 speeds. The cleanser has some kind of microbeads that's similar to the texture of iodized salt. I like it too.
