I like it

By Sarah the oompa loompa

from Ridgefield wa

Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

I bought this thinking it was a spin brush. it's not, it vibrates. however, that vibrating sure does something! my acne has been reduced even more since using this. I like the auto off feature too. really my only gripe is the brush head pops off as I wash my face if I'm pressing ever so slightly too hard in the "open" direction. however I'll learn not to do that and it's not nearly a big enough issue to make me return it.

Best Uses

    Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

    I bought this for my daughter to help with cleaning her face and to encourage a daily regimine, as I had been experiencing a hard time getting her to start one. The brush was simple to use and worked well for her and in no time I got her cleaning her face daily. It cleaned thoroughly and wasn't too rough on her sensitive skin.

    I wouldn't recommend this product

    Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

    I used this product for about acouple wks daily and loved it. Than the head started popping off when I would try to use it. It would pop when I turned it on! After reading the reviews and talking to customer service it sounded like a on going issue with the product. I loved the price tag on it but wasn't worth the headache. Luckily I was able to return it and get the MIA 2 which I should've bought the first time.

        Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

        I bought this on sale as spending over $100 on a name brand is out of the question for my budget. I have been very satisfied. It is very easy to use, the pieces attach and detach easily, it is easy to clean, and easy to charge. My skin is much brighter, more evenly toned, and really smooth after using this product daily.

            Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

            It did the job the first two try's but then it stoped working afterwards. The pressure decreased even on the strongest level. And it would work for like 3 seconds then turn off while it was fully charged. I would return if I could but I'm pretty sure I can't after it's been used sadly. I'm not exaggerating, it really only worked the first 2 try's.

            Great

            Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

            You can get the brushes everywhere, and they're cheap, and most of the time they're on some kind of sale on top of that. No worrying about whether or not the Ulta near you is going to have your supplies if you're traveling or something. The brush heads are really easy to change out, too.

            I prefer to use the sensitive skin brush on the second setting, or the normal skin brush on the first one, depending on how delicate my face is feeling. I haven't really ever used the third setting, and I'm honestly not sure what good it does. The silicone brush is what I use for removing masks--you really don't need any extra mechanical exfoliation than using a brush every day will give you.

            It holds a heck of a charge, too. I traveled for a couple weeks over Christmas, and I never had to plug it in. The stand is a little flimsy, but it works. I just sometimes have to waggle the base of the unit into the stand to get the power cord to connect properly. Not often, though.

            I can't say how this compares to one of the really expensive brush systems, since I've never used one. I thought I'd start here and if it worked for me, move up to a Clarisonic or something, but I've never felt any need to upgrade. It's just a good unit, and it suits my needs perfectly.

            Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

            I used it once and had to return it. It was so powerful, it felt like it was vibrating my brain. It seemed to clean well and the brush didn't fall off like it did for others, but I couldn't put up with the vibrations.

                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.

                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. :-)

              • 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. :-)
