Clarisonic vs Olay Professional Pro X Face Brush

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 05:53

I received the Olay Professional Pro X Face Brush for my birthday in April but this summer, I purchased the Clarisonic Mia and I thought that I would do a comparison post today seeing as they are both used for the same thing.

The Purpose
The purpose of these brushes is to deep cleanse your face daily. 

The Clarisonic Mia claims that:
  • It is 6x better than cleansing with your hands
  • 61% Greater absorption of Vitamin C after use
  • 2x Daily use is proven safe and and gentle
  • 94% report Softer Skin
  • 90% report more glowing skin
Many people swear by these Clarisonics to keep their skin in good condition. The Clarisonic Mia 1 comes with one brush head called the 'Sensitive Brush Head' although you can purchase different ones. 

The Olay Professional Pro X claims that:

 Designed by a team of dermatologists along with Olay, the Advanced Cleansing System is professionally and clinically designed to cleanse hard to remove makeup 6X better vs. basic cleansing.

The Differences

  • The Olay Professional Pro X is battery powered whereas the Clarisonic Mia 1 comes with a charger. The disadvantage with the charger is that it is not suitable for travel as the plug does not match different countries.
  • The Olay Professional Pro X has two speed settings whereas the Clarisonic Mia only has one universal speed.
  • The Clarisonic Mia stops after 1 minute to ensure you cleanse your face for the right amount of time.
  • The Clarisonic Mias brush head moves much slower and feels like it suctions to your face more than the Olay Professional Pro X.
The Similarities

  • Both come with a small cleanser.
  • Both have replaceable brush heads.

The Price
The main difference with this product is the price. The Clarisonic Mia is $99 whereas the Olay Professional Pro X is $29.99.

Overall Thoughts
I found that neither of these completely cleared my skin or made it perfect but both make my skin appear more glowing and healthy overall. I think that the Clarisonic feels like it deep cleans your face better and really gets the dirt out more so than the Olay brush does but a huge disadvantage I find with the Clarisonic is that the power does not last for very long.

Overall, I like both of these brushes and I think that the Olay one is a great cheaper alternative but personally, I feel like the Clarisonic cleans my face better.
