I did a post a while ago about finding less expensive version of the much talked about Clarisonic facial brush, the Pretika Sonic Dermabrasion Facial Brush. I finally got around to ordering it and wanted to share with ya'll!
Fist of all, I've never used the Clarisonic, so I can't really compare/contrast. However, I've been very please with the Pretika. I ordered mine from Drugstore.com for $41.50. Yes, that is $160 less than the Clarisonic. The brush seems to be kind of harsh, but I suppose it is supposed to.
The brush comes with a a charging station and an extra brush head. You have to charge it for 24 hours before using it, then they recommend you recharge after so many uses. I just keep mine on the charger and keep the brush heads in my medicine cabinet to keep them clean.
The brush has a built in timer that beeps every 20 seconds to indicate that it is time to move on to another area of your face. I didn't order the Pretika brand face wash etc. I actually ordered the Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser from Sephora...I had a gift card that I won from Bluegrass Love!!
After using it only a few times I could really see a difference in my pores. They are a lot more clear and not as noticeable. And, on my forehead I had a lot of little bumps that werern't really visible but could be felt. Using the Pretika cleared that right up! I would certainly recommend you give the Pretika a try! I saw that someone online said they purchased theirs for $30 at Rite Aid, so you might check there....
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!! I'll be back with some pics from mine :)
