Cleansing brushes are normally seen as an investment purchase, with many retailing for £100 and up. While they might be a great addition to your skincare regime, it's quite a lot of money to throw down on something you're not sure you will love, so I wanted to find a few alternatives that are a bit more pocket friendly.

I've featured FOREO's Luna range several times on the blog and have to admit, that these silicone, bristle-free devices tend to work best for my skin. I find them really gentle yet super effective at getting rid of all traces of makeup and daily grime and leave me feeling really refreshed after each use.

The Luna Play is a scaled down version that's the perfect option for anyone who travels a lot or wants to try the brand without shelling out £150 for the regular devices. It's about the same size as a cotton pad and uses the same t-sonic technology as it's bigger brothers and sisters. Despite the small size, you get an incredibly thorough cleanse and at just £29, it's a really great way to discover the brand. Unfortunately it's not rechargeable, but you should get around 100 uses from it (3 months) - long enough to decide if you'd like to invest in the full-size Luna.

Mary Kay's Skinvigorate brush is more of a traditional cleansing brush, with soft bristles and two different speeds for customisable cleansing. The nylon bristles have rounded tips, which make them feel super gentle on the skin. The pack includes two brush heads, giving you up to six months use (replacement heads can also be bought separately).

I like to use this brush in the mornings in the shower - the fact that it's waterproof makes life so much easier! I normally use it with either a gel or foaming cleanser as I find they work best, but anything creamy or foamy would work well. The trick is to make sure the brush is nice and wet - if it's too dry, it will feel more scratchy on the skin. It works really well for exfoliation too, so you may not need to use an extra scrub if cleansing with this brush every day.

At £35 for the brush and two heads, it's so much more affordable than many others on the high street! Mine is a limited edition version, however the regular ones are usually white if you don't fancy the purple!

Are you a fan of cleansing brushes? Which ones are your favourite?
