Just use warm water and soap. Any kind of soap will do, but if you have sensitive skin you can clean the brush with the same cleaner you use on your face. Otherwise, warm water will get most of the dirt, though none of the bacteria, out.

Make sure to rinse the brush thoroughly after each use, and hang it upside-down to dry. I leave mine hanging in the shower, and have never had a problem with bacteria. The hanging allows the excess water to drip off without pooling anywhere, and doesn't compromise the bristles.

I wash mine with soap and water after using it periodically and then spritz some isopropyl alcohol (or you can use Purelle too) on it as well to help break up any oily make-up residue. This has kept mine clean and free of build-up. Soaking it in soap and water may help too if you have stubborn residue.

I use this in the shower and just rinse it out with remaining face wash or a little body wash when I'm done. Make sure to gently spread the bristles apart with your fingertips or the palm of your hand to wash the bristles all the way to the bottom. For disinfecting, you could rinse it in a solution of water and rubbing alcohol, but I would be sure to really give it a good rinse with pure water afterward lest you ruin the brush.

It depends on the amount of exfoliation your skin needs. You can use it everyday or every other day.

answer 2
I have extremely sensitive skin, too. I just use a light amount of pressure with a light, circular motion. The bristles are very soft, so it's honestly soothing. The brush allows your face wash to really get into your skin...deeply cleansing. As long as you control the pressure and how much scrubbing you choose to do, your skin will be fine. However, I do not use the brush if my skin is particularly dry or sensitive. Allow your skin to return to "normal" before you use the brush again.

I use this once a day, at the end of the day when I'm removing my makeup. There isn't much need to use this twice a day - too much exfoliation can irritate your skin. End of the day is best, because thats when makeup has settled into your pores and you really need a deeper cleaning.

I use mine every time I wash my face (at least twice a day), and I have sensitive skin, too. I have not experiences any irritation, and it has done a nice enough job exfoliating my skin without tugging on it (like a washcloth might). I usually have a difficult time exfoliating my skin well enough, and this has helped without being too harsh since the bristles are soft.

How does this compare to Clarisonic
I realize the this brush is manual vs the "sonic" technology of the Clarisconic I tried the Clarisonic Mia and did not like the way my face was red afterwards or the vibration on my face. Reminded me of going to the dentist. My face was smoother, I did not really notice a difference in pore size or cleaner pores. I did notice my face was much redder, have extremely sensitive skin and flushing of the rosacea. Wondering if this would really help clean the pores and not aggrevate my skin. Thanks.

It will help to clean the pores and certainly will be much more gentle than the clairsonic. I am just not sure if it will be intense enough. I find that if I want more exfoliation I scrub for a longer period of time (about two minutes per facial area). You may be able to tailor the degree of exfoliation to your liking if you experiment a little. Find a period of time of scrubbing that meets that middle ground of effective results yet not irritating.

I use this brush on my husband when we have "spa days" and he has very sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin too, but his gets red very easily. This brush did not irritate his skin at all. In fact, he really loves it!

I too don't get any redness from using this brush. You control how much pressure and the motions, so if you notice your face getting red you can go a little softer.

For $5 you really can't beat this! I want the Clarisonic, but honestly after using this super inexpensive brush I don't see a reason to spend so much money when this product is doing an excellent job!

My skin has never felt better, and my products seem to work better because ever since using this brush my face has finally started to clear up. And my skin is so much softer, so my makeup goes on better too.

if your have dry skin i beleive it would exfoliate your skin and take the layer off that was dry or flakey so i think this product would be benifitial to you. It leaves your skin feelings really tight and clean and then you could put on a moisterizer to put the moisture back into your skin.

i would say put on a thick creamy kind of moisturizer and let is soak in for a few minutes and then use the brush to scrub the flaky skin away. Wash your face with a cream cleanser and them put a nice moisturizer on after that. I think that would really make your skin nice and help with the flakiness and dryness.

It works great on dry skin, but you might want to change your cleanser and/or moisturizer too!

I have moderate skin, sometimes oily, sometimes dry but for the most part I would describe my skin more dry than it is oily. It definitely leaves the face feeling clean and I use less moisturizer now after using this brush than I did before. I think with the brush it just helps give that extra exfoliation that scrubs away the dry skin.

I think it does! I use it 3 or 4 times a week just so I don't iratate my skin, it really helps get your cleanser deeper into your pores and has improved my skin! Plus it's 5 bucks, it's a great buy. :)

i think this would help greatly with your skin. the bristles are soft and do a great job of getting the dirt and oil out of your pores. this brush will work great with many of the acne cleansers out there, but not as well with the cream ones. my fav cleanser is the clarifying cleanser by murad...it feels sooo good, doesn't sting your eyes at all if it happens to get in there, plus your skin feels super clean afterward without being overly dry. perfect with this brush!

yes it should. this brush is gentle enough to use both morning and night, but it does it's job. when you exfoliate your face, the face wash product you use goes into your pores instead of sitting on your face on top of the layer of dry skin. This means that your face wash can dig deep and do it's job. I've seen my skin clear up 100% and my face wash doesn't even have acne medicine in it. Another plus is that it is easy to clean, all you do it run it through the water, pop the cap on and it's sterile. No bacteria will build like it does on towels and stuff.

If you have oily skin, its a good exfoliator. My skin is normal and it did a good job of cleaning it. The bristles are too rough for me to use everyday.

If you already have a good cleanser i can see the face brush working it into your skin more to help clear up acne but using it alone wont help.

I highly doubt it. The bristles are pretty soft. I would look into a clarisonic - Actually if you go to the Sephora search bar and paste in "Mia™ - Blue with New Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head and Dr. Brandt" there's one especially for acne/blackhead prone skin!

I don't know that a brush like this would be appropriate for active acne. skin suffering from acne is usually very irritated, and doesn't benefit from exfoliation. Generally, gentle cleansing with anti microbial and oil reducing topicals like salicylic acid etc are effective. Murad, proactiv, and Mario Badescu all have products I've personally seen work. I keep my mild adult onset breakouts under control with neutrogena oil free acne wash, which has 2% salicylic acid. My whole family uses this product successfully. Good luck!

I noticed that the brush helped to even out my skin. It did not overly irritate the dry areas and helped to clear up the oily/acne prone areas.

If you have whiteheads, then yes it will clear up your acne. Any type of exfoliating will clear up white head acne. However, do not use it if you have cystic acne because it will make you break out even more.

This won't clear up your acne on it's own. I use it with the Clinique 3 step acne line. I saw great improvement in my skin when I switched to Clinique, and then even more improvement when I added in the brush. In the morning I just use the clinique cleanser and my hands, but at night I use the brush. I have dry skin also so I don't want to over do it.

I don't know if it'll help clear up acne, but for the price its a good value to try. I suffer from break out prone skin and I find the bristles are gentle enough to use without being too harsh on the skin.
