Mistake

Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

I'm usually very happy with Ulta, so when I was looking to replace my brush cleanser this was on sale for ~$35 and I expected a good product, I ordered online and purchased with points, when it arrived I saw how cheaply it is made (Olay's version costs less and is better quality); next- to return something you purchased with points is tedious, so - I've learned I can't use points at the salon, when returning I may get a partial return of points sometimes like with this product, disappointed with both the product and service and Ulta overall after this experience.

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      I love this brush! I asked for this as a Christmas gift versus the Clarasonic, merely because of the price point. I've had this brush for about 3 weeks now, but I can already tell major differences in my skin. My skin not only feels and looks smoother, but it is producing less oil/shine, and my break outs have dramatically lessened. This brush really helps facial moisturizers absorb into your skin properly. I couldn't recommend this item more! I also read about other people's reviews stating that their brush head pops off. Mine has not done this at all. They might not be properly securing the brush head onto the device before using. Overall, love this and it's totally worth the price!

      Caution

      By Ashtaylor

      from Oklahoma

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      This brush does a great job helping to cleanse my face. My husband even uses it. But with that being said, we have bought 2 in the past 6 months because they completely die and won't recharge. Our second one just died over the weekend. So we are now on a mission to buy our third in 6 months. Although we loved how this product works and I like the price of the replacement pads compared to your competitors, we will not be replacing our broken one with another ultra brand product. Wish I would have just spent the money in the first place to get a product that would last.

      I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. Like everyone else the brush head popped off while using and would not stay on. Makes me so sad!

      Spend the extra $$ on something else

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      I've had a dermalogica face brush before so maybe that's what I'm used to, this brush head doesn't move in a circular motion, it just vibrates. And it's gigantic and electric which seems odd to me. I'll be spending the extra $$ for something battery operated and more compact. I think there's a reason they were offering a BOGO when I purchased. I did try it once to be fair but didn't feel like my skin got nearly as clean as my old dermalogica brush.

      Brush Falls Off

      I received this as a Christmas gift and really wish I had kept the box to return it. Like others have said, the brush continuously falls off during every use. Do not waste your money on this.

      The best thing my skin has experienced

      By Onlyinmydreams

      from Maryland

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      Im 45 mom of 5. My youngest are 3 year old twins. Since giving birth my skin and body have done a 360.
      I have always wanted to try a Clair Sonic but just too expensive. I was very excited to see that Ulta had a Sonic facial system!! So, I picked it up during their sale for Ulta products. I have used it several times already. OMG my face looks amazing!!! I have issues with combination skin..my nose has black heads/oily. My cheeks have large pores dry/red. My chin and forehead normal. Since using the brush I found that I only need to use it 2 or 3 times a week. I am currently using the brush it came equipped with and its doing wonders. The system is just like the expensive Clair Sonic system, built in timer, different brush heads for those times you need a more aggressive cleansing verse's those days when your face is having issues and anything can set it off they have softer brushes. I personally love it!! My skin is clearer. My pores on my faces are smaller. My nose (black heads) are less! I always rinse off the brush by removing it and running water over it before the next use. The unit itself is not waterproof. It charges on its own charging station and comes with the cord to plug in. Its just the right amount of weight in the hand. For the first time use I had to leave it charging about 6 hours. I cant say enough good things. I would recommend buying it when its on sale like I did. They had Ulta products buy 2 get 2 free.
      So, I purchased 4. That way I had my back-up's and replacements brushe's at a fraction of the price. Oh yeah!! I also used a 20 percent off so it was an amazing buy and Christmas present for myself. This would be great for teens with skin issues. My husband just told me my face looks like its glowing today.
      My make-up is going on better and looks more polished. I highly recommend it.

      I wouldn't want to be without this again

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      I've been using the Ulta Sonic Advanced Cleansing System for one month already. I didn't notice results in the first week, but by the second week, my skin was smoother and pores a little smaller. I don't have sensitive skin, but using the regular brush head on the deep cleaning speed was too harsh for my skin the first couple of uses. My skin became irritated, red, and itchy, but that was because I was doing too much too soon. So for the 1st week and a half I alternated between the silicone head and the sensitive skin/gentle head and used it on the slowest speed. The only immediate result I got was that my skin felt sooo clean. After the first week and a half, I felt like my skin was ready for the regular brush head. By the second and third week, I noticed my skin was a lot smoother and my pores have been minimized. I feel like my face is not clean when I don't use it! I use it with the over-hyped Purity 3 in 1 cleanser, but any gentle cleanser will do. After I cleanse my face with the Ulta Sonic cleanser, I apply Clinique Clarifying Lotion with a cotton ball and then I use moisturizer. At night, I've been using the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum after I cleanse and tone. The glycolic serum and the sonic cleanser together have done wonders on my skin. I will most definitely repurchase the Ulta Sonic Cleansing System!

          A:

          This is referring to the piece that the brush head attaches to (included). You should not have to do anything once your brush head is attached. We hope this helps!

          The unit is water-resistant, so it can be used in the shower, but we do not recommend fully submerging the unit in water.

          A:

          Everyone's skin is different, so the normal brush may work for some but not others depending on how sensitive your skin is, but we do include a brush specifically for sensitive skin. :-)

        Why is vibrating better over rotating when it comes to cleaning the face?

        1 answer

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          The high frequency sonic speed at which this tool vibrates works to loosen up and thoroughly and gently remove dirt, makeup, and pore clogging debris, so it deep cleans the skin better than manual cleansing or a rotating brush. :-)

        Does it spin or just vibrate?

          A:

          This facial cleansing brush features sonic technology, which means it vibrates at a high frequency speed to gently remove makeup and deep clean better than manual cleansing or a rotating brush.
