The Philips VisaPure Essential SC5999 / 00 is a brush head for the VisaPure facial cleansers from Philips. Unique to this brush head is the black sponge in the middle. The black color comes from charcoal, which is known for its purifying properties. Do you prefer to use a facial cleanser in the shower? No problem. The brush head is completely rinsable and so you can also use it easily during showering. Use the brush before you apply cream. Because you deep cleans the skin, the skin takes the care products better.
