Feels like facial-brush wars this Fall! A Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush and a Philips Pure Radiance Sonic Facial Cleansing System are going head-to-head with Clarisonic for space on your bathroom counter. And both are waving at your wallet with competitive price tags up to $150. Let's see about the Philips Pure Radiance brush first.

Yep, again, I know what you're thinking! Go ahead, say it! Philips already knows exactly what we think of the shape of the Philips Pure Radiance Sonic Facial Cleansing System. *grin*

For the short video below, I asked Jennifer Ingram from Philips Canada to tell us about the Pure Radiance cleansing brush. She threw in a demo on a raw egg. Btw, the unit is known as VisaPure in Europe -- "visa" as in visage, rather than "VISA card."

philips pure radiance sonic facial cleansing system: why

Can't watch the video right now? The Philips Pure Radiance why-buy-this info is as follows:

  • cleansing 10 times more effective than just washing your face with your hands (use with any gel or cream cleanser)
  • smoother, clearer, more radiant skin with once-daily use
  • the mechanics combine sonic vibration with a brush that rotates (the Clarisonic brush oscillates rather than rotates)
  • two speeds: gentle cleansing and deep cleansing
  • a one-minute cycle with mini-pauses to indicate time to move to the next facial zone
  • 30 one-minute sessions with one charge
  • a drying stand/charging station into which the brush fits bristles down, no plastic cap required
  • three brush options include one for normal skin, one for sensitive (pink centre), and one for exfoliation (grey centre stripe)
  • the brushes are quite soft, with bristles cut straight across (the Clarisonic brush bristles have rounded tips)
  • a plastic travel cap and soft zippered case for just the unit

Come September in Canada, you'll find the Philips Pure Radiance Sonic Facial Cleansing System ($149.99) wherever Philips products (such as the insane DiamondClean power toothbrush) are sold; replacement brushes are $19.99 each. Only the pink unit will be here at first; a pale blue just launched in the US, so we'll see it in Spring. Visit philips.com for more info.

So, whatcha think so far?
