            Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

            I had been dying to get a clarsonic, but I was really nervous about investing over 100 dollars on one since I'm on an extremely tight budget and have sensitive skin that reacts with inflammation to any kind of rough treatment. Anyway I went to the ulta store to check it out, I looked at the differences between the ulta dual action cleansing system and the clarsonic Mia.... There is no timer and the brush is smaller on the ultra brand product, the brush bristles felt equally soft... So I decided to go agama and purchase with my $3.50 off coupon. My total was less than $25 including tax! I started using it that same night, after my skin was soooo soft and felt much cleaner than it usually does and I could see all of the dirt and makeup on the brush and feel very satisfied with my purchase! It does all of the things I expect for a reasonable price.

              Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

              I've been wanting one of these types of facial cleaners for awhile. Once I saw this one in an ULTA email, I knew that for the price it would be good to finally try one. I have never tried the more expensive battery operated cleaners, but this cleanser (for a quarter of the price) left my face feeling super clean and super soft. It has already exceeded my expectations and I hope that it will last a long time.

                Wanted to get a facial brush but did not want to spend a lot of money. Read the reviews on the product and decided to purchase it. I am very pleased with the brush and its performance. Skin felt clean and smooth. Brush was just right/ not too soft and not too abrasive. I highly recommend it.

                  I really wanted a clarisonic but I wasn't prepared to pay 150!! So I decided to get this and so far it's great. I am still interested in seeing what the clarisonic is like though.

                    Let me start off, I bought a new camera the new S5 Note and when I say it takes good pics, you can see everything!! With that being said I was shopping around for a good brush cleanser, because the hands don't do as well of a job. I purchased this gem after reading the reviews...I have been using for about 3 days, I use the Clearasil face scrub because I get occasional acne. Let me say I took a pic before use and after three days my skin texture is more smoother looking especially my pores. I took an upclose picture of my face and I was like wow...I could see the dramatic difference. I recommend for anyone to buy, I also purchase the nip and tuck glycolic peel that I use also.

                      Wish I had tried a product like this long ago. Not only thoroughly but gently cleanses and seems to soften the lines and light wrinkles.

                              Yes, you can certainly use the Professional Brush & Sponge Cleaner (Item #: 2240849) to clean and disinfect the brush head and sponge head. You can also use your facial cleanser to clean them by massaging into a lather and rinsing.

                              ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System brush does not have a stand. We recommend laying it on the bathroom counter to dry after each use. We recommend cleansing your brush head/sponge head weekly by removing it and lathering and rinsing it with your facial cleanser.

                              This cleansing device provides deep cleansing and light exfoliation to keep pores clear, which helps to prevent acne blemishes. It is not claimed to treat skin redness, but please note that by providing a deep clean, any treatment products (such as anti-redness treatments) applied after using the cleansing device are better able to penetrate the skin for improved efficacy.

                              ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System can be used on adult skin of any age! The light daily exfoliation that the rotating bristles provide helps to improve skin texture, remove debris, and prep skin to fully absorb any treatments applied after cleansing.

                              ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System brush does not have a stand. We recommend laying it on the bathroom counter to dry after each use.

                              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!).

                              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.
