So, my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Since he is gone, it's up to me to get it for myself. I couldn't really think of anything. Then, was browsing the Costco website and saw they had a Nutra Sonic cleansing brush--including the cleanser, toner and three brush heads. I had never heard of the Nutra Sonic, but have been longing for a Clarisonic for a couple of years now. I began voraciously reading reviews, as I am known to do. I could never justify $200 for a sonic brush, but $95 as a gift during a deployment...hmmm. Plus, buying from Costco is always satisfaction guaranteed. You cannot beat their return policy should anything be wrong with it down the road either.
So, I went for it. Gulp, still extravagant But, WOW. This thing is amazing!!! My skin has never felt so soft, smooth and glowing. I have only been using it for three days, twice a day. I have been using the sensitive brush head on the lowest setting since my skin can get irritated. I'll keep you posted on the long term effects, but it's supposed to fight aging and acne. It gets my face crazy clean, and products penetrate the skin much more effectively.
I can take it in the shower with me, and it has a body attachment as well. I haven't used it yet, but look forward to trying it out.
The brush heads need to be changed every 3-4 months, depending on use. The brushes are also about 40% less than the Clarisonic ones. The charger is universal voltage, just like the Clarisonic Plus. I have read that the instructions are much more extensive with the Clarisonic, but I'm fine getting info online and paying less than half the price!
HSN does sell a travel version--smaller and only two speeds. However, it is $44.95.
Ok, must get back to feeling my face...
