I wrote briefly about the Spa Sonic back in December 2011 as part of a last-minute gift guide. It would probably be a good idea to write a full review.
The Spa Sonic is a seven piece face and body polisher kit that contains 1 polishing unit, 5 brushes, and a battery pack. Spa Sonic has clear complexion technology that promotes younger skin, improves skin texture, and reduces pore size.
- Gently exfoliates, cleanses, and smooths the entire face and body
- Tightens pores and reduces the appearance of fine lines
- Promotes rapid absorption of skin care products
In the Box
Small facial brush- this is my personal favorite and most used brush out of the entire set. The brush is very very very very soft, but it gets deep into pores and makes the skin on my face feel cleaner without it being tight.
Large body brush- Feels better than a washcloth, cleans deeper than a loofah, and neater than a body sponge. I will admit that I don’t use the body brush as much as I would like to, but I do use it before I shave my legs to exfoliate the skin and get a closer shave.
Facial buffer- Get those skin care products like night creams and moisturizers deep into the skin with the facial buffer. The facial buffer head is a sponge of sorts, only thicker and tougher.
Pumice stone- Rough feet, elbows, knees and heels? Smooth it out! The pumice stone head will make rough places smooth in no time. I can admit that I don’t use this head much either.
The Spa Sonic always has been and always will be my go to brush for oil cleansing. My skin is so clean, fresh, bright and vibrant after I use the Spa Sonic. I use the body brush and the face brush the most. I really do not have a need to force a device to rub my moisturizers in, but I’ve tried it and it does a good job. I don’t use the pumice that much because I use Baby Foot and foot lotion, so I never catch my feet slipping these days. I personally like the Spa Sonic because it is more affordable.
Compared to the Clarisonic Mia
- Spa Sonic has one speed setting, the Mia has two.
- The Spa Sonic rotates counter clockwise, the Mia has three different rotational spins. One clockwise, one counter clockwise, and one ring remains still.
- The Spa Sonic has four interchangeable brushes, the Mia only has one brush.
- The Spa Sonic uses batteries, the Mia is power chargeable.
- The Spa Sonic does not have a timer, the Mia does (to ensure you don’t exfoliate one portion of your face for too long)
- The Spa Sonic takes care of you from head to toe, the Mia does not.
