Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

I got this item because I was trying out a less expensive alternative to the calrisonic. Omg this is awful! I don't like to write negative reviews. But it needs to be said. This design is ridiculous, the position you click the head into, if you even nudge your brush the opposite way it flies off. So disappointed! Regular brush is too rough. Silicon pad is cheap,

    Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

    The facial brush has a built-in timer that runs about 15 seconds less than I'd like, but I simply start and stop it again if I need a bit more time. Comes with three different kinds of heads; the silicone ones are wonderful!

    Broke after 5 months of using

    Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

    I used the device nearly everyday. I liked how it worked and how my face felt after I used it. I use makeup remover to take off my makeup every night, once I started using this I saw how much wasn't being taken off by my makeup remover. I didn't like that after having it only 5 months it totally died.I wouldn't give this any stars but the system won't let me do that.

      I only had this for about six months before it completely quit working. I never submerged it in water so it should have been fine. I did use it daily until it stopped working.

      Not what I expected

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      I love to use the facial brushes to make sure my face is clean. I bought this brush and was disappointed that it only vibrated. Although some people may like this I don't think the vibration gets the face as clean as the the rotating brush. Please make a brush that rotates with the three speeds and that is also rechargeable. Needless to say I returned this to the store the very next day.

      Bad! Terrible product!

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      DOES NOT DESERVE ANY STARS!!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PURCHASE. I BROKE MY CLARISONIC AND HAVE BEEN PUTTING OFF REPLACING IT.
      I PURCHASED THIS ITEM IN THE HOPES THAT IT WOULD BE SIMILAR AND THERE IS NO COMPARISON. THE ULTA BRAND WILL NOT HOLD A CHARGE FOR MORE THAN A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND YOU CAN BARELY FEEL THE BRISTLES MOVING.
      WHEN I TRYED TO RETURN IT (WITH THE RECEIPT) I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WOULD BE NO REFUNDS SINCE IT HAD BEEN OVER THE 60 DAYS....HUH?
      "EVEN THOUGH THIS IS DEFECTIVE?", I ASKED. "YES" IS WHAT THE GIRL TOLD ME. THE MANAGER WOULDNT EVEN COME OUT OF THE BACK TO TALK TO ME ABOUT THE PRODUCT.

      Read both good and negative reviews before you buy

      By GayleGalor

      from Florida

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

      I bought this today in the store because the second Ulta regular face brush I had died. Both used a lot of battery power and ended up dying with the battery section completely gunked up inside and corroded because the brush isn't waterproof. (Still better than the Olay brand.)
      I've wanted a sonic brush, but didn't want to spend so much on a Clarisonic. I was recently given a mini-facial by the Clarisonic ladies in store, using multiple attachments. It definitely was nice, but I wasn't 100% sold. I liked the attachments and the feel of the unit and will probably eventually break down and buy myself one, but I wanted to try the Ulta one first after reading the good reviews. I'm quite surprised at so many of the negative ones, because they sound like the reviewers are doing something wrong or being extremely picky. The brush head has kind of a strange and delicate way of putting it on, so I can see how people could easily do it incorrectly, which would make it fall off. I do agree that the charger feels a little flimsy. It's a plastic holder that has a hole on the bottom that you put the charger cord through and then stick the unit on. Not really impressive... The brush is also really lightweight and not as sturdy as I'd hoped.
      The operation of the brush, however, is pretty nice. It's much wider than the Olay or original Ulta brush, and oscillates back and forth instead of spinning. A lot of people seemed disappointed by this, but it actually is better for your skin, so - another plus. The normal brush felt great on my skin and was actually gentler than I expected. My skin felt wonderful after using it. The gentle brush is surprisingly good. The bristles are long and incredibly soft for sensitive skin. I haven't used the silicone brush yet, but the bristles are short and soft enough to be gentle but effective. Overall, I think if you want to try a sonic brush, but don't want to pay at least $130, this is a great brush to try. You can always return it if you hate it.

          Yes, it's safe to use from head to toe! Many use the Normal Brush Head for the body and the Sensitive and Silicone Brush Heads for the face and neck. We hope this helps! :-)

        • Staff Expert

          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!

          A:

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

        Can the normal brush that's for exfoliating be used on sensitive skin ?

        • Staff Expert

          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. :-)

      • Q:

        Why is vibrating better over rotating when it comes to cleaning the face?
        Asked on 10/30/2016 by Jackie from Colorado

        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. :-)
