Review & Usage

I do love my Clarisonic for deep cleaning my face especially after a long day of wearing heavy makeup. However, as much as I love using it, I can't afford using it daily since it can get a little too abrasive for my sensitive, acne-prone skin. What do I use then on a non-Clarisonic day? This super cheap Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad! :)

Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad is basically an oval-shaped, palm-sized, scrubby silicone pad that contains numerous bristles on one side for deep cleaning the skin and and a small suction cup on the other for handling and storing/sticking on the mirror/wall when not in use (how genius!). About two-thirds of the surface has smaller bristles and the rest is larger nubs (very much like the silicone pad supplied with the Sephora Dry Clean: Solid Brush Cleaner).

To use, simply wet your face, apply your cleanser like usual, then follow in with a slightly wet Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad and gently massage your skin using small circular motions. It helps lather up the cleanser so well, making the massaging experience much more fun. It feels extremely gentle on the skin yet it cleans so effectively! In fact, I find that it provides a better and more thorough clean than simply using your hands. It doesn't absorb your cleanser, either. You can maneuver the pad so that it really gets into every nook and cranny of the face, for example, on the sides of the nose. It's so easy and quick to use and doesn't require charging or power or extra tool or anything, just your hands to maneuver it!

Does it really deep clean pores, though? This I doubt, and I am skeptical whether it would even with continued use. However, I do feel and am confident to say that it cleans much, much better than bare hands due to its ability to “push” your cleanser a little deeper into the skin. It gets all kinds of impurities off, leaving the skin squeaky clean and so soft afterwards, and that I think helps improve the condition of the skin over time.

Being of silicone material, it's simple to clean with water after use but I try to also deep clean it every week with a brush cleanser. Speaking of brush cleanser, this little tool can be used as a scrubbing tool for deep cleaning your brushes, too! Or you can use it in conjunction with your makeup cleansing balm/oil to get the makeup off faster and better.

Convenient, affordable, portable, durable, gentle, and effective, there's no reason not to try this little nifty tool! Although I do believe that there are plenty of dupes out there for even cheaper if you are resourceful. This is one of my impulse purchases that I have zero regret for. I highly, highly recommend you give it a try especially if you are new to exfoliating tools and hesitant about making an investment on a higher-tech tool! :)

  • Oooh, interesting!
    It’s pink and pretty, I’m sold! ;D
    I guess it is like the manual version of Foreo Luna. If not for the sonic pulses, I’d like to try this to stimulate/massage (maybe weekly).

    • “It’s pink and pretty, I’m sold! ;D” – LOL! We sound so much alike! ;D It does look very similar to the Foreo Luna!

  • In German drugstores such pads are available for a few years – and cost 1,75€ (with tax, so it’s currently around $1.50) and it’s in deed very popular for brushes but doesn’t work well for bigger than eyeshadow brushes.

    • That’s what I heard. These are selling as cheap as a dollar at some places! For bigger brushes, I still rely on my Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove. ^_^

  • Hi Jaa, LOL sorry but if the bristles were any longer, it would look like a brush I use to wash Chloe’s school shoes. HAHAHAHA!

    • No? How come? Honestly, the last time I used my Clarisonic was probably almost 3 weeks ago? This one is just so much quicker to use. Grab, scrub, rinse, and done. ;)

  • I bought a similar device from Skinfood and love it to take off stubborn clay masks. I’ve been using it for pretty much everything, from regular cleansing to makeup removal and love how easy it is to clean compared to my Clarisonic. I haven’t touched my Clarisonic in forever because of this little guy xD

    • Oh Skinfood makes one? I need to check it out! We have a local shop nearby. :D Yeah, I’m the same! Since I started using this, I rarely ever touch my Clarisonic. It’s just so much quicker to use! :)
