Are they any good? What do they do?
Any recommendations or to avoid?
Thank you

Do you mean things like the Clarisonic?

Well, I have the Boots No 7 whizzy thingy. It revolves. I like it a lot.

Today in HoF I played with a Clarisonic (because the stand was unmanned for a change and I didn't have to fear a hard sell.) It doesn't spin. It sort of pulses. The bristles do move but it's a tiny movement.

I have heard that the Olay whizzy thingy is very much like the Boots No 7 - it also spins. They're about similar in price.

From what I can tell, the whizzy things sometimes sold by Lidl and Aldi are similar to Boots and Olay.

I have heard that the Clinique one is crap: it neither spins nor pulses. The handle just vibrates.

I think my whizzy thingy is awesome. I use it when I double cleans, at night, before putting on my overpriced serums and night creams.

I have the number 7 boots one. It wasn't expensive.
I don't use the tougher bristles as they are too rough, and I don't use the sponge ones either, just the soft bristles.

I have some pores on my nose and it seems to make them smaller.

I love my Clarisonic. Face creams/serums/treatments go further and work better after cleansing with a Clarisonic.

It isn't crap at all. My skin is 100% better since I started using it.

Ooh yes thanks. It's for a gift, the clarisonic looks wonderful but just seen the price grin

Good to know that olay / no.7 could be good. Any more views on these?
I think I would have enough advantage points to get myself one too
