Vibrator or Facial Cleansing Device: A Fun Quiz

Updated 06/30/19

Why hello there, silly friend, and welcome to this weird article. Odds are since you've already clicked into this story, you have a sense of humor that lends itself well to slightly off-color beauty-related jokes, but either way, I feel like I owe you an explanation as to why this piece of content exists. I suppose it all started when I recently came across a vibrator online (you know, just doin' some personal holiday shopping) that I couldn't help but notice looked exactly like a Clarisonic. I showed it to my roommate (and fellow Byrdie editor) Erin, who immediately chimed in with her own story about confusing sex toys with face cleansing brushes when a boy was at our apartment the other week and asked what the long, pink vibrating device sitting next to her bathroom sink was for.

These two experiences led us down a rabbit hole of comparing sonic cleansing devices with sex toys and realizing that the two literally look the same (and possibly work similarly too, though we haven't quite put that theory to the test). 

In honor of this delightful discovery, I've put together a little quiz here challenging you to determine whether the following 12 items are vibrators or sonic cleansing devices. Keep scrolling to test your luck—and maybe do a little personal shopping of your own. (To find each answer, just click on the product.)
