{Beauty Review} Pore Your Heart Out with Sorbet

If you are anything like me, you were desperate to get your
hands on the Clarisonic when the news that it was launching in South Africa hit
the magazines and blogs. Excitedly you read about all its nifty features and
skincare benefits only for your glee to turn into despair as your eyes focused on
the whopping R3000 price tag.
Lucky for us frugal ladies, electronic handheld facial
cleansers are all the rage at the moment so many brands are jumping on the
bandwagon and introducing inexpensive substitutes to the market. One such brand
is Sorbet, a trusted partner in beauty. Their “Pore Your
Heart Out” facial cleanser is available from Clicks stores for only R279. That is
a massive “Save vs Splurge” differential.


In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t tried the Clarisonic
so I can’t make any other comparisons other than the price. However, here is
what I can tell you about the Sorbet facial cleanser:
  • This nifty little device removes dirt from pores more
    effectively than manual cleaning.
  • The brush head rotates 360 degrees clockwise and counterclockwise.
  • It is completely water-resistant. I wash my face with the
    device in the shower.
  • The device is rechargeable with the USB cable that is
    provided. When it is fully changed, the device can be used continuously for 1
  • The product comes with a convenient stand that doubles as a storage
    container for two brush heads.
  • This model comes with 3 different brush heads:
    • Daily cleansing brush for quick removal of dirt.
    • Exfoliating brush with fine tapered bristles for deep
    • Silicone brush head for extra sensitive and delicate skin.
  • According to Sorbet’s website, replacement heads will be
    sold individually within the coming months as well as a super fine latex sponge
    head which can be used to apply facial masks.
Overall, I am very pleased with my budget-friendly find. Not
only is it a relatively inexpensive product, it also allows me to reduce my toiletries
bill. You see, using this device drastically diminishes the need for expensive
facial cleansers and scrubs. Additionally, it improves the effectiveness of face creams and serums as the fine exfoliating bristles gently remove dead skin cells, allowing the products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
I use the sensitive brush head once a day, swapping it out for one of the other two brush heads
every third day; 20 seconds on my forehead, nose and chin, and 10 seconds on my cheeks. I have not experienced any skin sensitivity since I started using this facial cleanser however, I did have a mild breakout on and around my nose. This is mainly due to the impurities surfacing due to the deeper exfoliation – which
is not a bad thing! :)


There you have it, I have “pore(d) my heart out” to you about
this nifty gadget from Sorbet and I believe it is worth every cent I paid. Please share your thoughts below. I would love to hear from you.
