I've owned this product for over a year now so I have a very good idea of what it can do. First of all it's sonic which is a step up from the spin type brushes so it's less abrasive. It's put together very well, completely waterproof. I've submerged it several times and never had any issue. I've also dropped it in the tub and on the floor a bunch of times too and it survives every time. These were no light drops either! Each time I remembered thinking. This is the one, it's sure dead this time and it's surprisingly survives like a champ. I have large clogged pores so I tend to use it on it's highest setting. It works well for cleaning pores and preventing breakouts but not as well on tough deeply embedded blackheads. I still have to use an extractor from time to time but I'd like to believe that this product does loosen them. It charges quickly and holds battery life relatively well. It's not super noisy. The replacement heads are more affordably priced than it's competitors. The brushes last quite a while as well before needing replacement. I replace them anyway due to sanitary purposes but even when I do the condition of the bristles always appear to be in decent quality even after daily use. This particular set comes with an amazingly gentle cleaner as well as a travel brush storage container and charger with stand.
