Cosmetics giant Clinique has jumped into the cleansing system market with its new Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, featuring two distinct bristles: The white side is gentle for large areas like the cheeks, the smaller green side is stiffer for areas that tend to clog. It's battery-operated and can be used in shower or tub, $89.50; at clinique.com.

Spa Sonic's Face and Body Polisher comes with four brushes -- a small one with gentle bristles for the face, a large body brush, a facial sponge to massage and stimulate skin, and a pumice to be used on rough spots such as knees and elbows. Available in white plus five lush colors, $34.99; at walgreens.com.

Pulsaderm's sonic brush movement pulsates 10,000 times a minute for optimal cleansing. It operates in three speeds, with a concave brush that makes it easier to reach tough spots like contours around your nose. It's $89, or there's a smaller Pulsaderm Buddy, $69, perfect for traveling; at pulsaderm.com.
