Question
Better buy - Pore Pad or Complexion Brush?
Which is a better buy for $5 the Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad or the Sephora Face Complexion Brush? Or should I invest in both?

I wear mineral makeup daily and need something gentle enough on my face to remove buildup and keep my skin clear.

I have and use both regularly. I use the pad in the morning when I need a refresher type clean, and the brush at night when I remove my makeup.

I find this really gentle... too gentle. But I have pretty resilient skin. If you have sensitive skin, the pad would be better for you, I'm sure.

I have used both - the brush for years, and now the pad for a month or so. Prior to using this, my complaint was that the brushes would break quite easily, and if in a humid environment (I like to travel to warm places, some of which automatically turn off the air when you leave the room) would not dry out completely between uses. Initially, I thought the pad was very rough and harsh compared to the brush. Now that I've been using it more, i do agree it is better at exfoliation, and my skin is smoother afterwards. It doesn't feel as harsh now, so I think your skin does get used to it. Also, I've noticed a very minimal, but real, decrease in size of my pores. I bought this on a whim to get free shipping and glad I bought this. I have not used my brush since receiving this. If you're on the fence, I think $5 is worth a try.

I was wondering the same thing, but I ended up opting for the Precision Pore Cleansing Pad. And I love it!! It never makes my skin feel dry (even though I use it daily), and it's soft/ flexible enough that it's really gentle while still giving you an awesome clean. I haven't tried the brush, but the cleansing pad is definitely a worthwhile purchase!

Having used both, I'm partial to the Cleansing Pad.It's gentle, easy to keep clean, and provides exfoliation and deep cleansing.

The complexion brush is nice, but I've noticed that it gets dirty pretty easily especially if you use the brush to remove your makeup. (The makeup builds up on the brush bristles which could cause you to break out more often..)

But, since there isn't a price difference in either, I'd say try them both out and see which one you end up liking the most. Both are good and will thoroughly cleanse your face but one's more prone to getting dirty than the other...

It's a personal choice. I don't like the complexion brushes at Sephora. I think they are too soft. The pad is soft but gives a little more scrubbing action. I would suggest you first use a makeup remover pad or makeup remover oil to just remove the makeup and then use the pad w/ your cleanser to wash your face. The pad nor the brush is designed to be a one shot all in one makeup remover and cleanser, it will be a two step process w/ either one

They both work well, but the pad is considerably more gentle than the brush. I found the brush scratched my face a little bit. So, both tools being effective, it depends on how sensitive your skin is and how vigourously you want to exfoliate.

I wear mineral makeup as well. Start with an exfoliating cleanser like Philosophy Micro Exfoliating Cleanser. Massage with your hands. Then use the pad with your normal cleanser. Face should be wet and only a small amount of cleanser will do.

Specifically call both the JCP store and your Sephora stores. Both stores should carry it in their tools section but always be sure by calling ahead. Sometimes when I went to the main Sephora store I didn't find any of these brushes, but it was because they did not restock them yet. So also remember to ask one of the employees in case they just ran out in the front.

you'll still get pimples so long as you sweat, wear makeup etc but with this it WILL clean out your pores. I wash my face twice a day using this each time and i have yet to have a break out. I've only been using it a week and I can tell a huge difference. Just remember to wash with warm water, rinse with cold water. My pores clog in the worst hard to reach place, my nose and around my nose. Everything I used couldn't bend to gently reach the area to clean it instead of inflaming it. If you use the small area of this cleaner with those bigger "bumps" it's a little more solid and abbrassive so just be mindful that using that end may irritate after scrubbing too hard.

I don't have problems with acne but I do have periodic breakouts, and oily skin. I've only used this product for a week or so, and I've seen that the one pimple I have on my face now has cleared up a lot faster than normal since I've been using the pad. I think those nubs help to stimulate the skin, bring better circulation to the face, and it can really get into those tough to reach spots(corner of the nose) and clear out the pores. I also use less cleanser and my complexion is a lot brighter. Good luck, and I hope I answered your question!

After reading all comments from all three pages I was wondering which would be a better buy but I'm still skeptical as to what choice to make because I need a product that would help me clean my face other than using a cleanser and water...buying the brush separately with the pad does save money compared to buying the dual face brush...but which one would actually work better?

I would recommend this cleansing pad over any other. It's incredibly easy to clean and the handle is actually a suction cup, making it perfect for the shower or facing up near your sink ( I hate the idea of something like this potentially laying face down on a shelf in the shower or on a counter). It also cleans better than any other product I've ever used.

If you have a chance, check out the dual brush in the store. I was going to buy it until I actually saw it (I had read the reviews, but now I know what they mean) - it is thick! I can't imagine using it on my face. I didn't measure it, but I would guess that it's an inch thick, not including the bristles. Once I saw it in the stores, I bought the pad (I was already using the brush). From an ease of use and value standpoint, I would definitely go with the separate brush and pad.

I'm a stage performer, so I have to wear A LOT of make up. Washing my face with just cleanser and water never does the trick, I can still see traces of foundation left on my skin when I dry my face. However, once I started using this cleaning pad, it's the first time I've ever seen my face completely clean. You'll still have to use a make up remover for your eyes, but this does an amazing job of taking all your make up off with just the pad and cleanser.

answer 9
The pad contains two sections, one with the short bristles, the bottom with bead type bumps. The bumps I initially thought were for massaging use but do not cover enough area to be of significance. Therefore, the bumps aren't meant to actually do much but to add convenience when you wash your face. You hold the suction cup between two fingers then you can also place your thumb on the bump section. This makes things much easier to clean so you can get deeper down into your pores with more control.

There is only one length to the bristles; they are there to cleanse the pores. On the bottom part of the cleansing pad is a group of circular textured dots, there are there as a grip for the thumb so that you will not drop the pad as more soap foams up.

Question
uses
can this be used before applying self tanner to exfoliate? I was thinking of using this instead of just exfoliating with a scrub.

I would say no. It's very soft and I would think you would want something a little stiffer to exfoliate with. This pad is more of a massager and pore cleanser, not an exfoliator.

It's a pretty good exfoliater but nothing beats using a facial scrub. However, I think it's good enough to use before using a self-tanner.

It would clean all the pore bits, but this is not exfoliating at all for "the big grits". I would still exfoliate to ensure even results. You can never be too careful with self tanners!

It is not scrubby enough to be effective as an exfoliator before self-tanning. It is only lightly exfoliating on the face, and would hardly make a difference on the arms or legs. Even a washcloth would exfoliate better. I really think a sugar & oil scrub is ideal for your purposes.

I wouldn't use it for that. I don't think it's strong enough. Besides it's pretty small and gets super slippery when soaped up. Better stick to a buff puff.

It seems to do a pretty good job of exfoliating my face. I'd think you could use it before applying self-tanner, yes.

I personally would not use this as an exfoliator. This pads bristles are not firm enough to be used as an exfoliator...

I did a VersaSpa spray tan recently and used this to exfoliate my face, but I also used this with a scrub instead of a usual cleanser for extra-exfoliating power. Worked great!

i personally use this with my cleanser as a scrub and, in my opinion, it works great. i've not ever used this befoe putting on a self tanner though but it should help it go on better. either way, for $5 what do you have to use.

Question
Is is okay to use this twice a day, every day?
I bought this and it helped dry up clogged pores BUT is it ok to use in the morning and at night every single day. I thought it might be too abrasive?
I've used it twice in a day already but maybe in long term it might not be good for my skin! Ok thanks everyone :-)

Use it as often as you like. It doesn't do anything, so it can't do you any harm.

I'm using it twice daily with a cream cleanser and am very happy with the results. I don't find it too abrasive... Actually I find it stimulating and invigorating... Only mildly exfoliating.

Everything depends on your skin type- if you have sensitive or easily irritated skin, it would be best to use it once a day instead of twice, to avoid flare up. if you have oily skin, you'll probably want to us it once a day to avoid excessive oil production due to dryness and absence of oils. overall, I'd say it's probably best to use once a day, because while its not rough at all, you want to be as gentle as possible.

Yes, you can absolutely use this twice a day. It is not rough at all. It really helps get circulation going in your face and helps your cleanser or facial scrub get into the nooks and crannies.

I don't see any problem with using the pad more than one time per day. If you have had problems in the past with your skin drying out or become irritated then I would suggest using a gentle cleanser and a good moisturizer but, you should be fine using the pad for morning and night!

It might be too much to use it twice a day at the beginning, I would let your face adjust to it first. Give it a week before you start using it twice a day.
