Affordable alternatives to facial brushes that are similar to the Clarisonic
Clarisonic is the brand that pioneered the market of sonic facial brushes. Years ago, when the first Clarisonic came out, women all around scoured Sephora and QVC in search of one. These bad boys weren’t popular for no reason.

Back when I had a Clarisonic, I absolutely fell in love with it. Nothing cleared up my clogged pores better than that brush!

Years passed and I learned to take better care of my skin. I eventually sold my Clarisonic on eBay. However, recently I’ve unfortunately started to break out and started to miss my trusty facial brush. But I wasn’t fond of the idea of forking up $169 plus tax for another Mia 2.

I wound up purchasing an off-brand product that was similar to the Clarisonic Mia 2, which wound up being the exact same product minus the branding. The Jecnovo-brand brush was $89.99 on Amazon and I managed to get a discount, bringing it down to $55.99. Regardless, even without the discount, $89.99 is almost 50% off of Clarisonic’s MSRP of $169, which is still an impressive bargain.

Unfortunately, Amazon has taken down all products similar to the Mia 2. Not to fear, though: I’ve compiled a list of affordable and fierce contenders for the Clarisonic (and no, Olay’s ProX Brush isn’t the only decent affordable cleansing brush on the market). Keep reading below for my top picks!

Hangsun Sonic Cleansing System: $69.99

Waterproof Rating: IPX7 – Highest, can drop in water
Power: Wireless Charging Cradle
Speed Modes: 3
Brushes: Includes 3 (Normal, sensitive, body brush)

The most similar to the Clarisonic in terms of aesthetics and durability, this off-brand brush is sleek and features wireless charging as well as 3 speeds, 1 more than the Mia 2.

Lavo Giro Electric Cleansing Brush: $24.97

Waterproof Rating: IPX6
Power: 2 AA Batteries
Speed Modes: 2 (360-degree rotation)
Brushes: Includes 2 super soft brush heads

The Lavo Giro is a better bargain than most brushes at this price point. I’m surprised that this brush has a waterproof rating of IPX6, which is quite high. This brush is safe to use in the shower too!

SmarToiletries LILYA 2 Speed Sonic Facial Brush: $9.95

Waterproof Rating: Unknown
Power: 2 AAA Batteries
Speed Modes: 2
Brushes: Includes 2 brushes (sensitive, delicate)

This brush may be perfect for those with sensitive skin, as it includes two softer brushes. I am impressed with the 1,000-day warranty as well, especially for the price of the product!
I am concerned about the durability of this brush in a wet environment because there was no official waterproof rating, but plenty of customers have stated that they have used it in the shower with no problems. I would advise to keep it away from wet areas as much as possible to avoid battery corrosion.

Daisi Electric Facial Cleansing Spin Brush: $15.95

Waterproof Rating: Yes
Power: 2 AA Batteries
Speed Modes: 2
Brushes: Includes 1 brush

This is one of the most cost-effective brushes on this list. It’s waterproof and definitely looks like a more expensive cleansing brush. The downside is that it only comes with 1 brush, but purchasing replacements would still be much cheaper than getting a more expensive brush system.

Liberex Sonic Vibrating Facial Cleansing Brush: $29.99

Waterproof Rating: Yes
Power: Wireless charging dock
Speed Modes: 3
Brushes: Includes 3 brushes (soft, deep pore, silicone)

Isn’t this one cute? It’s small and portable, which is not just great for travel, but for people who may have a lot of products filling up their medicine cabinet.

Essential Skin Solutions Face and Body Brush Cleansing System: $17.00

Waterproof: Yes, no rating
Power: 4 AA batteries
Speed Modes: 1
Brushes: Includes 4 brushes (sensitive, normal, body, pumice)

This brush is perfect for body brushing. For those who struggle with back acne or ingrown hairs, the large body brush is a good solution for both problems. I also love the pumice stone, as it’s perfect for dry feet during the summer when sandals are worn frequently.

TOUCHBeauty Rotary Facial Cleansing Brush: $16.98

Waterproof: IPX6
Power: 2 AA batteries
Speed Modes: 2
Brushes: Includes 1 soft brush

This is the most affordable brush out of this round-up, but not a weak contender. Although this value brush kit comes with one brush, it boasts an IPX6 waterproof rating, making it functional for the shower and humid environments. Bonus: It comes with a cute stand you can keep on your bathroom counter.

HEYFYV Waterproof Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush: $26.99

Waterproof: IPX7
Power: 2 AA batteries
Speed Modes: 1
Brushes: 4 (exfoliation, sensitive, sponge, massage)

This kit gives you a bang for your buck. It’s got a high waterproof rating of IPX7 but is powered by 2 AA batteries, which cuts the price down by a lot. It also includes 4 brushes to give you plenty of options and versatility.

    I was looking for one a couple years ago and I saw a video where Marlena Stell, the owner of makeupgeek cosmetics, had a video where she said whether items were worth the splurge or if basic products were as good. She compared the Conair sonic brush to the Clarisonic. She said if she didn’t already own the Clarisonic she would definitely buy the conair and save the money because it may actually be better as it has 3 speeds not 2. I actually found mine at Costco for like $35. I bought one for both of my daughters too. I use mine about 3-4 times a week. And the Costco one comes with like 3 extra brushes. They usually have them around Christmas.

    Just wondering how you compared these. I’m in the market for a new cleansing tool as my Clarisonic battery died. I always understood the technology was in the vibrations per second. The more vibrations= better job cleaning.
