A DEEPER CLEAN

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty Workshop -

face-cleansing gad­get can give your skin a thor­ough cleanse. Th­ese handy gad­gets help un­clog pores, gen­tly ex­fo­li­ate, and re­move oil, dirt and left­over makeup. Just mas­sage fa­cial cleanser over your skin and away you go! Si­mone Wu tries th­ese three:

Olay Re­gener­ist Ad­vanced Cleansing Sys­tem, $49.90; re­place­able brush head, $11.90. The brush head ro­tates 350 times a minute. It comes with Olay Re­gener­ist Skin Re­newal Cleanser.

VERDICT: The bris­tles on this wa­ter-re­sis­tant gad­get were less densely packed than on the other two de­vices, and felt slightly rough. How­ever, they were still gen­tle enough not to ir­ri­tate my eczema-prone skin. Black­heads are a per­pet­ual prob­lem for me, and this de­vice re­moved them af­ter one use. The most com­pact of the three, it’s the only one that uses bat­ter­ies – a boon as I didn’t have to charge it be­fore use. Philips Visapure, $229; re­place­able brush heads, $14-$21. It comes with dual speed set­tings, for gen­tle and deep cleansing. The wa­ter­proof cleansing tool has a Skin Zone timer to in­di­cate when it is time to move on to the next area. The brush head ro­tates while the bris­tles vi­brate to give your face a deeper cleanse. VERDICT: Al­though the ro­tary mo­tion tugged on my skin a lit­tle, it had the soft­est brush of the lot. My skin felt soft and smooth af­ter and black­heads were gone. I also ex­pe­ri­enced zero itch­i­ness and skin red­ness af­ter. Clar­isonic Mia2, $215; re­place­ment brush head, $35. It’s wa­ter­proof and has two speed modes, low and nor­mal. The brush moves from side to side, like a fan, 300 times a sec­ond. You only need one minute to cleanse your face – from fore­head to nose and chin, then cheeks. It beeps when it’s time to move on to the next area. VERDICT: This felt very com­fort­able. The rounded bris­tles vi­brate; they don’t spin, so the brush didn’t tug – it felt like it was sim­ply vi­brat­ing on my skin. Black­heads were re­moved, and my skin didn’t itch or turn red af­ter. The first thing I no­ticed was how in­cred­i­bly smooth my skin felt!
