    Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

    Love this! It doesn't take away my blackheads, but minimizes them (and my pores). It feels great. Be careful around the corners of your nose because that area (on me at least) is more sensitive and gets raw easier. And if you only use 1 moisturizer, apply a 2nd coat on sensitive/drier areas. Yes, you can expect pimples as anytime you change your routine. I apply a sacylic acid on the areas to minimize this effect.
    Please note, anytime you have an electronic item that takes batteries, you will have a surge of power when the batteries are new and they will slowly fade off. If you want the same power, you have to swap batteries out more often.

      Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

      I like the way it makes my skin feels and it is so easy to use. The only complaint I have is that I was suppose to receive free pkg. of wipes. They told me at the store they did not receive any to give away with their product. I still would like to have had the wipes and asked for a rain check. I was told that they probably would not receive any more.

        Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

        I absolutely love this product. I use it every other day to exfoliate at night with my cetaphil cleanser and sometimes I alternate and use my neutrogena visibly even cleanser. I love how it makes my skin feel so soft and that I'm noticing much less acne breakouts. I also believe it's helping my products I use for discoloration work more effectively :)

              I purchased this product on sale and it came with cleansing cloths, which was a great bonus. I have found that this cleansing machine lifts the dead skin easily from my face. After a couple of weeks of use, my skin looks much better. I wish this machine had two speeds, as I've seen with other brands. I am happy with this purchase, and plan to buy one for my mother.

                  Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

                  I needed something to get rid of rough dry patches on my skin due to the winter wind but also give a deeper cleanse because I wear full coverage foundation. This did both.

                  The device is a bit on the heavy side but I'd say no heavier than a small hammer. It is no louder than a mechanical toothbrush. The bristles are a bit rough so I do not plan on using this during the summer when my skin tends to get more oily but as long as you do not put too much pressure on it (this will also cause the device to stall) then it shouldn't irritate your skin. Wet the brush head, attach it to the device, pour a bit of your cleanser on the bristles, and let the roataing head do the work for you. Move counter clockwise around any patches where you need some extra exfoliation. The foam pad isn't that great for an all over serum but isn't too bad for a night cream. I wouldn't recommend it for a day cream as it doesn't buff the cream into your skin, it just layers it on top. Just dot your cream on your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin then use the foam head to massage it in. Whatever keep you from touching your face with your hands right?

                  The first night I used it I noticed an immediate difference in the texture of my skin. My skin also felt much cleaner. Dry patches were almost completely gone and my skin actually felt sqeeky clean in other areas. I used the foam head to apply my night cream and when I woke up my skin felt very soft. Much better than using my hands alone.

                  After using the next morning my rough patches completely disappeared and I could tell my acne wasn't as inflamed. My daytime serum really sunk into my skin instead of saying on top, giving me an oily sheen, and my moisturizer actually moisturized instead of just sitting on top of my serum. My pores have been thirsty I'm sure!

                  I hope this lasts a while. I traded out the cheap batteries that Ulta supplies with the device for better batteries and now it doesn't sound like it will die at any moment. Even if I do have to replace this device twice a year I'll still end up saving a bundle in comparison to the Clarisonic. I just wish there were different brush options, like for sensitive skin or body, but maybe Ulta will come out with more in the future.

                    In what ways could this be better than the Olay Pro-X Cleansing system?

                      A:

                      ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System is very similar to Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. Both devices feature a rotating brush head movement that gently and effectively cleanses the skin as well as provides light exfoliation. Olay's brush features two speeds, while ULTA's brush features one universal speed. Olay's brush is water-resistant for safe use in the shower, while ULTA's is not and is recommended to be used outside of the shower. Olay's brush includes one brush head, while ULTA's brush includes one brush head and one sponge head. We hope that highlighting these similarities and differences helps! We also recommend to read the ratings and reviews of each product at ULTA.com. Both are rated very highly (currently 4.4 out of 5 stars!).

                      This device is safe to use twice daily. If you have sensitive skin, you may wish to only use it once daily. We recommend experimenting to see what frequency works best for your skin!

                  • 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.
