Most Helpful Positive Review Love the PMD Clean
I'm 55 and have been using just wash clothes for years to clean my face. I heard this came out and had to try it. I've learned to really care for my skin in the last year and love how it gently cleanses my skin, but you can really feel the difference in how smooth it is. I'm a big fan of serums and so I love that I can use the back of the PMD Clean to really massage them in too. As a middle aged woman, I'm really happy with the results this product gives.
Most Helpful Critical Review I love this but there are HUGE flaws!!
I ordered this from ULTA & used it for a few weeks straight. I really love the idea of it and it really did clear up my skin. However, the silicone head with the nubs and massager part is not ONE piece. So there are gaps between the back of the head and the head where the silicone nubs are to clean your face. Therefore cleansers & water get in behind the head. Which means it will not dry properly and not drying properly will eventually bring mold. Then you are putting mold on your face. If you own one after cleaning your face push on the nubbed side of the head and you will see are the water and cleanser coming out of the sides of it. That is no sanitary in the least bit and actually will probably break down the brush sooner rather than later due to the fact that water is getting in behind the head and getting into the electronics. I really, really wanted to love this. However I just don't think the manufacturers thought of this issue. It would make more sense if the whole head was ONE piece so no water could get in.
Reviewed by 69 customers Gave me cystic acne
Ava from Virginia Beach
I typically only like to leave reviews that are positive but I feel compelled to share my experience with this device. I have dry/sensitive skin and have always been really into brush cleansers, sponges, etc. I was super excited to try this and did research on how it causes your skin to purge usually within the first week to fourth week of use. While my skin did feel clean, it left me with painful cystic acne all over my chin which did not go away into two months of using this device. I have been fortunate to never struggle with bad hormonal acne/cystic acne but this device really did a number on my skin. Since I've stopped using all the cysts have subsided and haven't returned even when its my time of the month. This might be useful for some but beware of the potential risks. As far as I'm concerned, its not at all worth the money. You're better off investing in a tried and true brush or buying a buf-puf each month.
Game changer, HIGHLY recommend!!!

I received this in a subscription beauty box and was SO excited. I've been wanting one of these since I lost the charger to my Clarisonic. I love this so much more than I ever loved my Clarisonic. I like that you can use the front side (with bristles) for face washes, and the back side (smooth with ridges) for massaging in serums and moisturizers. It does such a fantastic job and I can really feel a difference in my skin. Our hands are just not able to penetrate products into the skin the way tools like this do. The fact that this doesn't have to be plugged in or even charged is a MAJOR bonus! Plus you don't have to worry about buying replacement heads. You can even use this in the shower since it is waterproof! It is absolutely perfect, in my opinion.
Broke and disappeared
Casandra from San Jose, CA
I bought his less than a year ago. My device never turned back on after I replaced the original battery. Also, shortly after that the stem snapped. I loved it while it worked for all of like 3 to 4 months. Pretty expensive device for it to just stop working and break on you.
Love it! Fresh soft skin
Rach from So-Cal
I use this with my Kylie foaming face wash after I've removed my make up in the shower with tarts micelar water. When I get out of the shower my skin feels and looks great! Only down side is when people go into my bathroom and see it they think it's for something else and wonder why it's just openly chillin in my shower haha.
Cleanface 2020 from South Carolina
The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I don't use it for anything other than washing my face. You can use it to massage in serums but I prefer to use my rose quartz roller for that. I use it at least once a day and my face has never felt so clean and refreshed!
Love it, but it broke pretty quickly!
FlagBarbie from Flagstaff, AZ
I'm giving 3 stars because of the construction of product... not the overall usage because for that, I would give it 5! I LOVE everything about this, but within 2 months, I accidentally dropped it in the shower and the bottom broke. So now I can use it without the power but that's it. They should move forward with constructing this with a sturdier bottom cap to prevent this.
Omg my face has never felt this good!!
VixAnne from Maine
So worth the money!!
Not worth the money
T from Texas
Left residue on my face, really didn't see much of a difference. After a week I eventually returned it and got my money back which was the most exciting part.
Smarie from CA
I'm washing my face twice daily with this wand and follow up with serum or moisturizer using the back to massage in the product. It feels so good and after 6 uses, my skin is already showing improvment of less breakouts.
Supermomofeight from DeQuincy, La
I got this for my Mother's Day gift for myself. I travel a lot with the VFW Auxiliary and forgot my last little silicone brush because it was so small. This one I won't forget and it doubles as a face massager.
Tiffany from Chicago, IL
I spent the extra money on this face brush hoping it was going to be a good investment, was I wrong. Keep in mind I bought this brush 05/15/2020 and I'm writing this review 05/25/2020, 10 days later. The nice rose gold part at the bottom started peeling. The device started malfunctioning. It kept turning on on its own, then when I tried using it it wouldn't turn on.
OMG!! love this
Gem from NV
Wet my face, then apply a small amount of face wash to the middle of the PMD, I start washing my face in circular motion all around in the second setting, Then rinse. At night I apply my face serum and massage it into my face using the back PMD.
Cleans well but not built to last
Michelle from California
This is my second PMD brush. The first one I got used from a friend and after a few months I had to constantly change the batteries... like literally every couple days the device would act like it's dying even after just changing the batteries. I decided to buy a new one because I did like the way the product cleansed my face. Well this new device ended up lasting me about a year and the same thing happened, I'm changing the batteries every 2-3 days when the first few months I had to change them once every 3 months. I don't think this device is made to last unfortunately. It's too bad because I actually preferred this over my Clarisonic brush because I didn't have to constantly change out brush heads. However, I've had my Clarisonic brush for 7 years and have had absolutely zero issues where I've gone through 2 of these devices in about 1.5 year time span. This device is cheaper than Clarisonic but not cheap enough to justify the fact that you will need to buy a new brush every year.
I'm so glad I bought this one!
Sara from Dallas Texas
I got this due to not having to replace the cleaning head. The silicone head is gentle on the skin. Like most of these I don't believe it is to be used to clean off makeup. Clean off eye make up and face lightly before then use this as a cleanser for the face. It has made my skin on my face and neck glow within the first week.
It is splash proof not submerge proof. If you clean it off and don't set the base in water it will last you.
My face feels alot cleaner
Nathan from Palm springs ca
I use this twice a day, morning/night. I have sensitive skin and this doesnt irritate it at all! I wet my face with warm water and then apply my cleanser, making it foamy. I then wet the head and apply it to my face on the 2nd vibrating mode. I like to leave it a few seconds vibrating on my trouble areas (cheeks) and everywhere else I just use gentle circular motions, letting it do its job. Anytime an area of my skin acts up , I make sure to take extra time on it with this. Occasionally I use the other side to put my moisturizer on, gently massaging it in to my skin. I'm normally too lazy for the massaging side lol but I love that it has that option. Honestly my skin has definitely improved from using this. Skin is softer and soaks up my skincare better. Probably never go back to just using hands for cleansing.
JessieLynn from OR USA
I was so skeptical about using this when I received it in my BoxyCharm box.
I've been using it every day/ each time I use my moisturizer/serums and I've noticed dramatic changes in my skin, my fine lines I had are nearly all gone and my smile lines have reduced in appearance, I no longer have crows feet from smoking cigarettes (I use the 3rd pulse setting) haven't used it for face wash have a Clarisonic. Don't like that I gotta use batteries but it's not a deal breaker, if anything happens to mine I'm definitely buying another one or something just like it.
RBR from Atlanta
I love this! I can tell it takes my makeup off better than just regular washing because when I use my peel pads at night there is zero makeup residue on it. It's also helped with sinus headaches - I press the back up against my temples and next to my nose and massage and it's helped so much.
My Skin Feels So Clean
JMeow76 from Texas
After one use I noticed a huge difference. My skin feels smooth, clean and so soft. I purchased a foreo but it didn't do anything to my skin and was messy, water and soap dripping everywhere. I also have RA and found the foreo hard to grip in my hand, this is easier to grip for me.
Crys from OKC
Won't hold a charge. Get 1 use and it goes dead.
Gives me an immediate headache
Morgan from Lake Charles, LA
I'm not typically very sensitive and I don't get headaches often, but when I tell you this literally immediately causes one, I'm so not kidding. It only vibrates and it shakes so hard I can't even keep it on without it causing pain. I am nottt a fan at all. Glad I got it in a boxycharm and didn't spend my money on it.
Looks good but DOESN'T WORK
Tara from Pittsburgh
I bough mine a few months ago thinking it would clean up my skin but it just didn't work. It looks cool but doesn't work. I would definitely not recommend this tool to clean your face and take makeup off.
Be Careful of Water Leaking Into Battery!
Blue from Huntington Beach CA
My previous PMD stopped working because there was no more battery charge (even if the batteries were recently put in!). My best guess is water somehow got INSIDE the battery compartment. Not sure how because I screw it super tight and rarely open it, but just a note to yall:
- make sure lid is tight
- don't stack your PMD in its stand if it has any liquid or water in it!!
- shake the PMD dry (I even wipe it down now after usage)
I wrapped the compartment with a ton of waterproof tape so we'll see how it holds up. Not going to go through warranty and all that again if this one breaks. :/
That being said, I still really enjoy this product so I give it 4 stars. I may have received a flawed product.
I love this
Brenda from Dallas TX
I Love this! I feel like my products work better with it! My skin absorbs it better and I use less product cause i'm not rubbing it into the skin on my hands also! I couldn't be more happy!
Brenda from Oxnard
I received this in my BoxyLuxe I was not too excited but once I tried it I fell in love. Immediately felt a difference after my first use. My skin feels softer, cleaner and I noticed my pores are not as large as before. If there's something I would invest on it is this.
Waste of money
Jill from Roanoke VA
This device does not work. It is complete trash. It does not take my makeup off like my Clarisonic. I'm returning this and going back to using my Clarisonic.
