I love this product!!!Let me start by saying I have horrid annoying skin which is oily, red, prone to spots and on top of that I suffer from rosacea too so have to be really careful what I put on my face. So I was a little worried the visapure would be too harsh and would have an adverse effect on my skin but I ordered it anyway after reading so many rave reviews about it. And boy am I glad I did!!! It has had such an impact on the look and feel of my skin...it's wonerful! I cant recommend it enough. I have been using it now for three weeks and my skin is still improving. Initially it did bring out some new spots but I think that is just all part of the deep cleansing process. My skin is now super clean, no longer has dry patches or flaky skin, its not as red and is smooth for the first time in years with a massively reduced amount of breakouts. I look much fresher and younger and even my make up is taking less time to apply! I think the design looks great and its fab that you can use it in the shower too. I'm using it morning and evening and can honestly say that I look forward to using it. The only issue I have with it is that its awkward to take away when travelling. I recently took it to turkey with me and the travel cover doesn't really stay on it. But hey! That's a minor detail...so all in all a miracle product really!!! I'll be telling all my friends to get one!

so far so good, but a bit priceyMy skin has stared to look duller and more prone to breakouts, and as it is quite sensitive some of the cleansing products are a bit drying, i have used a hand facial brush before but i tend to be a bit over zealous and end up with red and sore skin so i thought i would try this.
this product Vibrates - improving microcirculation, and rotates, - removing dirt and dead skin cells and is purported to offer a cleansing action that is 10x more effective than normal cleansing.
it has a built in 1 minute treatment timer, that has 20 second alerts for you to change cleansing zone which is useful. the Charging / drying stand fully charges the VisaPure in 6 hours and this lasts for up to 30 treatments on a enough for 2 weeks twice daily use, or a full month of once a day use.
the travel brush -head cover i found impossible to get back on without trapping some of the bristles out at an angle so that is not ideal, but then again it is not something i would use a lot.
so far i have found it very easy to use, and my skin is feeling remarkably smoother and looks brighter. the brush heads are said to last 3 months and are not expensive to buy.
i do think that the product is very expensive for what it is so i hope it will prove it's worth by continuing to improve my skin but i would expect it to last for a considerable length of time to provide value for money.

Great Idea, Poorly executedThe VisaPure's main function is to cleanse, it claims to be 10x more effective than regular hands. After one week of using this product, I have found that the skin does feel clearer than usual but could this be because I usually do not spend a minute or more in my usual routine.
There are 3 components, the charger, the body and the brush. It is each of these components which is poorly designed which lets the product down. First of all the charger which the visapure sits into is of lightweight construction and due to the length and weight of product it just takes a gentle touch to knock it off its base. I would have preferred contact-less charging as found in modern electric toothbrushes. Considering I own the Philips sonicare diamond clean a standard charging port should be adopted by Philips, whereby the same charging base can be used, that would be great for the green credentials of the device.
The main body itself resembles more of a microphone as used by newscasters so if you find yourself interviewing the shower-head don't be surprised. I feel the preset angle for the brush head is also naive and would expect Philips to take design cues from its sensotouch shaver allowing the brush head to have 3 way flex and pivot action. In terms of the preset speed possibly allowing at least two speeds, cleanse and exfoliate which could work in tandem with the brush heads.
The brush heads that I received and ordered separately seem to fray like a cheap paintbrush and I feel more R&D would be expected for something which costs as much as it does.
and Finally: The packaging.. wasteful.. no need for so much packaging. The packaging could be shrunk so it can fit through a letterbox.
Conclusions: I hope someone in Philips reads this and invites me to come in and help them redesign and repackage this. Alas that will not happen, but I hope potential customers find this review useful.

Amazing results in just 1 weekI received this product as a gift and knew nothing about its effects.. until I tried it! After 1 week, my skin is so soft, so much healthier looking.. I am truly impressed.
If I had known that earlier, I would have bought it myself a long time ago.

Good lookingThe design of the product is good, but the brush of it might too rough for fragile skin.
Not sure the original brush is fit for washing both face and neck.

Good idea but poor product qualityI definitely feel this product cleans my face better than simply using my hands and a face wash.
It's a bit backward though for the product to be so overtly aimed at women-even to the point the customer survey was totally aimed at females.
I was disappointed that within about 2 months of buying the product it malfunctioned and had a life of its own. Thankfully the retailer (Tesco Direct) had a great returns policy and simply swapped it out.
It does concern me, however, that the replacement could break and I'd then potentially be out of warranty in the future. Many reviews I've read state that the product has broken and been replaced, I only hope that Philips will continue to assist after a year has passed when the retailer is not liable. It's unacceptable for such an expensive product to expect to be replaced so quickly otherwise.
The charger, as many others state, is a bit rubbish but it does the job.
