    I've used this product

    I was given one about a year ago. It cleans well, however, the only brush it came with was large and was not suitable for small areas around the nose, between the eye and temple @ the hairline, upper lip, etc. If it has since been released with a smaller brush head attachment I'd say "go for it". For me and my $$, I'll wait till the next model comes out if there is one. HTH

    Thank you SO much!! You are a DOLL!!!! I was beginning to think I was being ignored !!! LOL!!! I'm thinking about getting it..but I'll have to see about the brushes it come w/ and the extra brushes you can buy...Looks like it'd be good for cleaning out clogged pores (I'm prone to blackheads ). Thanks again for the reply!

    I returned my clarisonic because it really didn't make any difference. I used it first with the cleanser it came with and later experimented with a few others. It didn't help with my breakouts at all, which was the main reason I bought it. My skin was exfoliated and smooth at all times but I really think you can achieve that with any exfoliater. It seems like it's worked really well for a lot of people though, so it may be worth a try, but in my case, it didn't really do much of anything. Hope this helps.

    Re: Clarisonic...Anyone Used This???

    bumping this up b/c it appears my beloved Clarisonic had gotten a bad rep... LOL
    I happen to loooove my clarisonic-- it is totally worth the mildly ridiculous price tag IMO!!
    At least for me... I have combination skin (slightly oily in the T-zone)and this has SAVED me from any yucky pore issues...it comes so close to a facial that the thing pays for itself after a week of regular use or so.

    I use the sensitive brush head and afterwards my skin feels, and looks, very fresh and clean, pores clean...without irritation. I don't know about the 6x more makeup removal claim, because I use a makeup remover beforehand and I really only care about the fact that it keeps my face clear and healthy looking.

    I personally think that the size of the brush head itself is not an issue, b/c you don't do much other than run the brush in small circular motions over your face--the brush does all the work and gets in all the "tight corners" on it's own... never had a problem manuevering around the nose and avoiding my eyes.

    I personally don't like the cleanser that Clarisonic has... I just use it with a regular drugstore cleanser and it works fabulously.

    I highlyrecommend this device!!!

    I have yet to jump on this bandwagon but have heard a lot of raves about it. You can find a ton of reviews on makeupalley.com and essentialdayspa.com

    Re: Clarisonic skincare brush

    I have had my Clarisonic (in Pink--wee!) for many months now and I can truly say it is worth it!!
    The sensitive skin brush head is plenty strong for me (I have relatively sensitive skin) .. you can change the amount of time it runs and the intensity too which is nice.
    I found that I only need to use it once a day, in the morning and I get great effects--clearer, healthier/brighter looking skin. Really has helped with that.
    I personally don't care for the company's cleanser, and I have found it works fabulous with just an everyday nice drugstore cleanser anyways (I use Purpose with it)
    HTH!

    Clarisonic?

    Yay or Nay. Does anyone own it? What are the results? What brushhead do you use? What cleanser do you use with it?

    Re: Clarisonic?

    Hi Danielle, welcome to Specktra! I haven't personally tried the Clarisonic but have heard a lot of great results from it. I'm just not ready to plunk down $200 for a device at this point.

    If you click on the search button and type in Clarisonic, you'll find a few threads on this topic.

    For oodles of information, try the EDS forum. Essential Day Spa Skin Care decleor dermalogica obagi
    I've learned soooo much about skincare on that forum and more than I ever wanted to know about various skincare gadgets, the Clarisonic being only one of many to try.

    Good luck,

    Athena

    Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    Does anyone have one of these? I am very excited to report that I recently purchased my very own after wanting it intensely since it's launch about 2 years ago (Damn you Oprah!). I've borrowed it from work a few times, and everytime I hate having to bring it back. So now I'm super excited to have my own PINK Clarisonic, thanks to my increased employee discount.

    For those of you who are unfarmiliar, Clarisonic is a facial brush made by the creators of the Sonicare Toothbrush--it looks like a big toothbrush for your face. It oscillates 300 motions per second, giving your skin a very very deep cleanse with intense but gentle exfoliation. It 's 6-7x more effective than manual cleansing and allows your skincare products to penetrate much deeper, therefore work more effectively. In an 8 week home use test, participants reported healthier skin, more balanced skin, fewer blemishes, felt more effective cleansing and a decrease in the size of their pores (appearance).

    I just wanted to know if any of you fellow Specktrettes had one or have tried one and what your feedback is on this amazing product.

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    I've had one for over a year and love it to death. It really helps to keep pores unclogged and my skin is so smooth after using it. I think it is a great addition to anyone's regimen.

    I always used the Sensitive brush head as I find the Normal head a little too abrasive.

    It came with the sensitive and I'm pretty sure that's the brush that was on the tester I borrowed from work, but I selected the normal one for my freebie w/ registration. I have very oily, resilient skin--nothing seems to get in lol--but if I find it's too abrasive, I'll use it for my neck & shoulders with the 2 minute cleansing cycle.

    Thanks for your input!
    Anybody else??

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    I have it and I absolutely adore it. My face always feels so soft after using. My only complaint is that is does not come with an additional base for the shower.

    Love love love this brush! Worth every penny! Everyone owes it to their skin to at least try it

    Flymestza - you really don't need 2 charging bases as the brush can last a week of daily use before needing to be recharged (I just leave mine in the shower and recharge on the weekend).

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    I'm glad to hear some positive reviews. I really want one of these but I'm afraid that it'll be too harsh for my sensitive skin. I'd hate to waste $200 that's not going to work well on me.

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    i was thinking about getting one of these after it was featured on specktra beauty news and i think now i'm going to have to pick one up this weekend. thanks, ashlee.

    Not a charging base, just something to stand it on so I don't have to lay it down in the shower. Other than that I love it!

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    It irritated my skin and made me breakout(with the sensitive head)..., I've still been thinking about giving it another chance though.

    Re: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

    I've heard nothing but wonderful things about it...Just really don't have the money for right now...My skin's pretty good already, so it's not something I find absolutely necessary. It just seems so coooool...
    Next time it's on easy pay on QVC it's gonna be tough to say no..
