Technology or Active Ingredients
Hand-held device features a dual action brush head that oscillates at a sonic frequency of over 300 movements per second. It enhances the effectiveness of your cleanser by gently massaging your pores open to loosen dirt and oil and exfoliate away dead skin cells. It has rechargeable batteries that last for 30 minutes, and it comes with one of two replaceable brush head options - "Normal" or "Sensitive". There are four additional brush heads options sold separately including "Delicate", "Deep Pore", "Acne" and "Body".
This anti-aging cleanser's active ingredient is a Natural Shiitake Complex, which is a natural antioxidant derived from shiitake mushrooms that are rich in vitamins and amino acids. Formulated with fine microbeads to exfoliate surface cells, the cleanser works to speed up your skin's natural renewal process and enhance the youthful appearance of your complexion in just 4 weeks.
