Last week I went to Cologne only to get this brush from the Kiko store and now I want to share with you why it was worth the journey. The reason why I wanted to have the brush is because a Shiseido sales assistant had told me that the 3€ face brushes from the drugstore are way to stiff to be beneficial for the skin. The Shiseido brushes however cost about 20€ which in my opinion is way too much. When searching the internet for cheaper alternatives I found a blog post where this Kiko brush and the Shiseido one were compared and the blogger came to the conclusion that both are almost the same while the Kiko is way cheaper (5,90€).
When I first tried the Kiko brush I immeditalely felt that it is way softer than the drugstore one I had before. While the drugstore one (of which you can read the review over here) rather felt like a toothbrush, this one feels like the tail of a cat! Also the Kiko brush has these blue knobs that give you an amazing massage.
In order not to make this post too long and boring here is a list of the pros and cons of the cleansing brush:
- acceptable price
- gives you a soft massage
- won´t damage your skin as the bristles are so soft
- can be used with any cleanser (I also tried it on a piece of Lush cleanser)
- best Shiseido alternative I know of
- I'm not 100% sure if it entirely clears my skin so it would be a good idea to use a toner afterwards
- in another review I read that even if it is as soft as this it can still be too scratchy if you have really sensitive skin
Which face brush(es) have you been trying so far? Do you know another good one you could recommend?
