I’ve always loved my Spin Brush, especially because it’s still going! And it’s still part of my skincare routine. I took it with me to Japan, and I brought it back with me to Australia! It’s sure done the rounds (pun intended!) But after a couple of years, you can start to feel that urge to upgrade. And if a company can make one winning product, you want to know: can they do a repeat performance?
After testing out the “new and improved” Spin Brush (my words, not theirs) that comes in the form of the Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa brush, I say… yep! Not a massive, uncontrollable ‘yep’, but I give it at least a moderately-sized Facebook thumbs up.
So let’s have a closer look at what you get when you order one of these little beauties:
Another surprising improvement they’ve made is to the over-all design of the device. It still spins as opposed to oscillating like the Clarisonic does, but like I said in my original review – I prefer this method for my sensitive skin. But they have made some key changes!
2. The device is smaller, and shaped to fit more snuggly in your hand. Perhaps this is to help with over-all package design too, so everything fits nice and neat in the box. But due to this being aimed at those only concerned with facial exfoliation (I’ll get back to this point in a minute…), it’s brilliant.
3. The device is lighter. Even with batteries, it is 60 grams lighter than the Spin Brush. Creating a lighter brush that still ticks all the right boxes is smart. It feels comfortable, it’s easier, and again it gives you greater control.
So while most of this is all good news, of course, there’s a few things that I feel could be further tweaked to perfection with this brush.
First, while the brush heads click on easily like they do with the Spin brush, and they feel secure, they definitely have more of a ‘wiggle’ to them. With the original Spin Brush, once a head was clicked on, it felt sturdy and solid. But with the Ultimate Skin Spa, you can easily wiggle the head back and forth. I’m not sure why this is, or if it’s a good or bad thing. I don’t feel like the head will wiggle off during use, as they are difficult to pull off once attached. But it just seems a bit strange!
Which brings me to the final ‘negative’ point: this is solely a facial brush set. Which, really, isn’t much of a negative. However, I am prone to getting body acne, so having a larger brush head option is perfect for my needs! With this more compact set, that doesn’t exist. I could still use the brushes on my chest and back, but it’s clear that this isn’t designed for that purpose, while at least the Spin Brush gave you that option. Ah well, I guess the old Spin Brush will continue to live in my shower, while the Skin Spa will live in the bathroom draw for night time cleansing!
One of the key deciding factors for anyone wanting to purchase a motorised cleansing brush to beef up their skincare routine is price. So here we go with the nitty-gritty!

“So wait, I just spent 10 minutes reading all this and now you’re flogging it? Are you being sponsored or something?!” No. I’m not. I am not getting paid for this post. But I am an affiliate! And I don’t take that lightly. I was on the fence a few years ago when I was first approached to do a review, but after literally years of using Vanity Planet’s products and chatting with them (and to the same person mind you! How many companies can say they have had the same PR for years? Speaks volumes to me!) I feel happy to share these codes and information with you.
Hopefully you will love and enjoy the Ultimate Skin Spa brush as much as I know I will for many years to come! Let me know what you think in the comments. Catch ya next time!
