      Great product! It is nice because it has a timer that shuts it off once you have been in one spot for a while. It cleans your skin very nicely! I use either a scrub or exfoliator with it and it lasts me about a week. You will notice the difference when you put makeup on after, it smooths your skin out very nicely!

          I had to replace my previous facial cleansing brush, never knew it would be so traumatic! This one doesn't rotate, just vibrates at a low or high rate and also fluctuates. My skin is not as clear since I have had to use this brush.

            I love this better than the Mia. The reason this one the whole head rotates but the Mia the inner part only rotates or vibrates not sure what is does. The price is so much better on this product. According to Ulta brands they don't test on animals, but I can't find the bunny logo. It doesn't say finished product is not tested on animals it just says not tested on animals.

                Love this. I've had 2 of the more expensive brands and both failed on me so I decided to go for Ulta's much cheaper option. So far I don't see much of a difference. It's rechargeable, and has three great options for brush heads. Definitely recommend the sensitive skin brush ... It's great!

                  Battery charge doesn't last long, the handle feels awkward in my hand, the brush head (facial) frays quickly. I am returning product. I've used Prosonic spa and liked it very much. Is comfortable in my hand and does a great job. Will order another of those.

                    Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

                    I was surprised at how lightweight the unit is - I was a little concerned that it might not be substantial compared to the pricier options. But - it is effective, especially paired with the right cleansers for your skin type. It made quick work of washing my face (I run it 2x, based on it's 1 min auto-shut off), so it's like getting a mini-facial even when I'm in a hurry. So far have used the regular brush head, which is pretty gentle (though I don't have sensitive skin); it's about as loud as my Sonicare toothbrush and my skin is soft, smooth and ready for treatments, serums and moisturizers. While I've read that it can be used in the shower, I don't want to tempt it and I want to lengthen its life (even if it is less expensive than the brand name units). It does "spit" a little when running, so beware of your splash zone. You'll also want to adjust how much cleanser you dispense; this will actually make your product last a while (bonus!) since a little dab will do ya. When I'm next at Ulta, I'll check out the other units, but it's not likely I will have those in my budget for a while. Besides, this has a few more features (3 heads included x 3 speed settings = 9 different cleansing functions) and affordable brush head replacements, making this a quality budget intro into electronic cleaning tools.

                      Comments about ULTA Sonic Advanced Facial Cleansing System:

                      I use this product every night and when I shower. I tried the Clarisonic Mia 2 initially, found I did not need the option of 2 speeds , so I returned it and gave this a chance.

                      The brush heads work, but then sometimes they keep falling off (you can change which brush you use). Disgusting, because these brushes are cleaning your FACE. I'm returning this and getting the Clarisonic Mia 1 (because I always use the 1 regular speed - which is all most people need) when it is on sale.

                      These types of face cleaning products have done wonders for my skin though! I would highly recommend an electronic facial cleaning brush to everyone, along with proper removal of make up with wipes, moisturizer (I like Benefit's Total Moisture), and a Vitamin C oil (like Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum). Together these are a little pricey, but you'll have your skin for...the rest of your life. Well worth investing in.

                          Each of the brush heads is safe for twice daily use! For those with sensitive skin, use the Sensitive Brush. If you have tolerant skin (not sensitive), use the Normal Brush. The Silicone Brush is safe for sensitive skin, too, and can be alternated as frequently as desired to provide gentle, deep pore cleansing.

                          For best results, use with facial cleanser of your choice and water. The only type of cleanser that should NOT be used would be one that contains exfoliating particles, as the brush already provides gentle exfoliation. We hope this helps!

                          The technology of the Ulta Sonic brush is comparable to other similar items on the market, as it oscillates at sonic speeds for deep pore cleansing and exfoliation. Ulta has not performed clinical testing on this brush, so we cannot comment on the results versus other brands. However, we guarantee satisfaction on all of our products and believe this is a great value for an outstanding product!

                          The technology of the Ulta Sonic brush is comparable to other similar items on the market, as it oscillates at sonic speeds for deep pore cleansing and exfoliation. Ulta has not performed clinical testing on this brush, so we cannot comment on the results versus other brands. However, we guarantee satisfaction on all of our products and believe this is a great value for an outstanding product!
