I was but a young college student when face-scrubbing brushes exploded onto the market. I desperately wanted a Clarisonic but couldn’t justify the price and sprung for the Vanity Planet dupe instead. It wasn’t long before it got gross, and everyone around me agreed that using the same oscillating, bacteria-trapping nylon brush head for months on end was less than hygienic. But that didn’t stop people from wanting to use something other than the palms of their hands to get their skin clean — and everyone switched over to hypoallergenic silicone bristles and never looked back.
One of our favorites in this category is the PMD cleansing device, which we named our favorite brush (after the more expensive Foreo). It operates at 7,000 vibrations per minute and breaks down oil and dirt. Normally it would run you $99, but right now it’s $69 — the cheapest we’ve seen it in a while.
