    Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

    I really wanted a Clarisonic, but couldn't afford to buy the refill brush heads. While a Clarisonic brush head costs $27 to replace, an Ulta brush head costs just $4, and if you go at the right time, as low as $1.50. I've been using this brush for almost a year now, and it has helped clear up breakouts and make my skin less oily.

    Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

    Initially I was impressed when I turned the unit on. It had power, didn't feel like it'd quit working on me in a week (like some other systems I've tried.) However, the bristles on the brush head were harsh and scratchy on my face. If I could've found a replacement head w\softer bristles, I believe I'd be using it daily.

    Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

    I was so excited to try this. Especially because I have always wanted a clarisonic. I didn't expect it to be as good as the name brand or last as long, but I did expect that it would be reliable at least for a while. I got it yesterday. First use went great. Loved it. The second use was a little worse. I was really disappointed because I turned it on and it wouldn't start, then I tipped it and it started. I couldn't figure out which angle it actually worked at so I gave up. The next morning, I thought I would try again. Same problem The starting and stopping is just so annoying I am going to have to take it back. I was truly disappointed because almost ever ulta product I have tried has been a success and the reviews were so good. Maybe I got a bad one, I don't know, but I am going to be holding out for a real Clarisonic.

        I used to have whiteheads around my nose. I used this product weekly for 2 minutes - after maybe 1 or 2 months, they have disappeared never to return again. I have had it for almost 2 years and love it! I am giving it to all my friends this year for Christmas. One Thing - put moisturizer on immediately after use - your face will thank you!

          Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

          I bought this product hoping for it to be similar to a Soniclear or Clarisonic brush (albeit slightly lower quality than these other brands). It is NOT! This brush has brush heads which are abrasive and harsh on your skin, and it is not capable of cleaning your skin without hurting it. After I use it, my face is extremely red and irritated, EVERY time! I do not even have very sensitive skin, so this surprised me very much. I cannot use the bristle brush head at all without my skin literally being rubbed raw, and can barely use the foam brush head without the same result. I have used it three times now, in accordance to the package directions, and what the Ulta how-to video on YouTube said to do, and have gotten these results. I know it's an inexpensive alternative to other facial cleansing brushes, but trust me, you will be very sorry to have spent this money. I would have much rather just saved my money a bit more and bought a more expensive brush that I could actually use without hurting my skin.

            Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

            I purchased this brush instead of a clarisonic. I must say that this brush worked great, my face felt silky clean afterwards. But about 2 months later, the brush gave out completely. It wouldn't come on, I replaced the batteries with new batteries and it still wouldn't work. I just returned it and now I have ordered a clarisonic mia 1.

                    • Q:

                      My dermatologist recommended the Clarisonic brush but it's a little out of my price range, unfortunately. How does this product compare and would it be a decent replacement to the clarisonic?

                        A:

                        There is a difference in the movement. ULTA Dual Action Cleansing device features a rotating brush head rather than Clarisonic's sonic oscillating brush head. Clarisonic devices have also been in many clinical and consumer studies and have proven results, while ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System has not undergone any clinical or consumer studies and does not have any clinically proven results. The benefits of ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System are that it provides gentle cleansing and light exfoliation to improve skin texture and moisture absorption. We hope this info helps!

                      Hello this brush seems really useful, but is the brush head antibacterial so it doesn't absorb all the bacteria on your skin and then when using next just put all that bacteria back on your skin. If not do they make antibacterial brush heads that is compatible with the brush.

                        The brush heads are not currently treated to be antimicrobial and are not made of antimicrobial material, but by washing your brush heads regularly (we recommend at least once weekly) and by replacing them every 3 months, you can keep them clean and safe for your skin.

                        This brush is gentle enough to use twice daily. You may prefer the super gentle sponge attachment to the brush attachment. If you experience any sensitivity, reduce frequency of use to just once daily.
