What is it? (description taken from Clarisonic.com)
"Clarisonic is the sonic technology proven to gently yet effectively loosen dirt and oil to clear your pores. The Clarisonic Skin Care Brush uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth your skin. In just 60 seconds a day, the Clarisonic micro-massage action cleans more than twice as effectively as manual cleansing."
So here are some highlights on what it claims to do:
- 6X more makeup removal
- Skin is soft and smooth
- Cleanses so well that products absorb better
- Gentle for use twice daily
- Reduces oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes
- Reduces the appearance of visible pores
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
I bought the Clarisonic Brush a while ago. The reason why I bought this brush was undeniably due to all the GREAT reviews!!! I used it consistently for a week, however I started breaking out after using it. I didn't know if it's because of the brush or because of the change in my diet during that week; so I decided to stop using it until my pimples went away.
After a while, I decided to try it again. This time I was breaking out, but not as much as before. I wanted to try this time to see if it helped clear up my pimples since many people claimed that it does. But it actually didn't help much with my pimples. So my overall experience using this product is not so great. Check out the pros and cons below:
-It does clean skin well. My skin feel so much cleaner using the brush compared to just using regular facial cleanser.
-Leaves skin very soft and smooth.
-Waterproof. Can be used in the shower or bathtub.
-Like how it claims, after cleansing, it feels like my skin absorbed the moisturizer better.
-Expensive. The Clarisonic Skin Care Brush System retail at $195. Plus another $25 after every 3-4 months for brush head replacement.
-Does not do much with my pores. They still feel and look the same.
-Doesn't get rid of my pimples/blemishes.
Here's a picture of my good ol' Clarisonic Brush:
I got so many brush heads along with the order just to test it out. They come in four types: delicate, sensitive, normal, and a new spot therapy...
The brush heads all look the same. The only difference is the texture.
Overall, I'm not very satisfied with Clarisonic Brush. Although it cleans your skin well, it still doesn't do all that it claims for me. But, if you have $200 to spare then why not grab one and spoil your skin. Make it feel cleaner, softer and smoother. However, I believe you can get an alternative skincare brush that's a portion of that ridiculous price and still get the same affect!!! Suit your own needs....well, in this case, suit your own wallet's needs!!!
