First Step or XOXO - What's Right For Me?

First Step or XOXO - What's Right For Me?


If you are new to using a Cleansing Brush, or have teen skin which needs rebalancing, and are a little overwhelmed by the different types of cleansing devices available then fear not, we have two devices made specifically for you, First Step and XOXO

Help is at hand as we take you through the benefits of using a cleansing Brush and how to choose the right brush for your skin type.

What is the main difference between First Step and XOXO?

First Step is our original bristle cleansing brush aimed at clearing unwanted breakouts and controlling excess oils with visible results from the very first use. First Step helps to clear blocked pores and makes your skin appear and feel much smoother. It replaces the need to use harsh exfoliators as the bristles gently, but effectively, remove dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling squeaky clean.

XOXO our new silicone cleansing brush deeply cleanses, unclogs pores, brightens and softens skin for a healthy, radiant glow. XOXO is perfect for sensitive skin. It adds radiance without being too abrasive. It works below the skin’s surface to empty out impurities and blocked pores, without stripping away any of its natural moisture. That means skin is smoother and skincare creams, moisturisers and serums supercharge their way deep into the layers.

What is the difference between MicroSonic™ and VibraSonic™ Technology?

First Step uses Vibra Sonic™ technology, a combination of sonic oscillations and pulsed vibrations which gently wobble pores to release impurities and condition your skin.

XOXO uses MicroSonic™ technology, 8000 sonic pulsations per minute which get deep under the skin’s surface to dislodge trapped impurities and rejuvenate cells.

How do I use the brushes?

Glide First Step over your skin in small circles for 60 seconds a day. Every 20 seconds the brush beeps so you know to move onto the next section (T-Zone, Cheeks and Chin).

XOXO has 3 different zones for the different areas of your face – oily/normal, dry/sensitive and a massage setting. Use with your favourite cleanser and use XOXO to massage it into your skin.

How do I keep the brushes clean?

First Step comes complete with a Skinsoft™ Antibacterial brush head that’s both soft on skin and uniquely protected by Biomaster, 100% natural and proven to guard against 99.9% of bacteria that can form on brushes between use, meaning your skin always gets the best treatment, especially if it’s is prone to unwanted breakouts. We recommend replacing brush heads every 2-3 months.

XOXO is made from non-replaceable, naturally antibacterial PurO Silicone – you won’t need to buy replacement brush heads – you simply wash it under warm water after use. 

Any other differences between the two?

Both First Step and XOXO are Waterproof and USB Chargeable. First Step requires replacement brush heads, which we suggest are replaced every 2-3 months.

Ultimately silicone or bristles is a personal choice and depends on your skin type. If you are going travelling though we would recommend XOXO, as it is small, lightweight and one charge lasts a whole month!
