Adding a facial cleansing brush to your current daily face-washing lineup is one of the best things you can do to ensure every last bit of makeup, oil, dirt, and grime from the day is completely removed. Aside from cleansing, facial brushes also offer the side benefit of gently exfoliating the skin and therefore sloughing away dead skin cells and other impurities for a brighter and more even complexion. If you have super sensitive or acne-prone skin, you’ll want to be careful when choosing a facial cleansing brush, and some may not be able to tolerate one at all.

However, if you are looking to take your nightly (and morning) skincare routine to the next level, incorporating a high performing cleansing brush is definitely the place to start. Sonic facial brushes designed with silicone—as opposed to traditioal brush bristles—give you a deeper clean, while also doubling as a facial massager and gentle exfoliation device. The best part about silicone devices is that they don’t harbor and absorb bacteria, so it’s great for preventing blackheads and clogged pores. Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite gentle, yet effective facial cleansing brushes to try out for yourself.
