I discovered this product while looking online at different home microdermabrasion devices. The Clarisonic Skin Care Brush is not quite the same as other microdermabrasion devices since it claims to do a whole lot more. The brush helps clean your skin much more effectively then you can by just using your hands. Its gentle brushes rotates back and forth at more than 300 times per second to massage your face and helps clears your pores, loosening dirt, makeup and oil.
It claims to remove six times as much makeup then you can by just using your hands. Using Clarisonic, supposively also helps reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. It even helps reduce dry skin patches, oily areas, and some blemishes. Clarisonic has been featured by Oprah on her Favorite things for Holiday 2007 last year. It was invented by the same scientists who invented the Sonicare toothbrush and uses similar sonic technology. The company states that Clarisonic has been tested by and recommended by dermatologists. The product has gotten quite a few positive online reviews, including other skin care websites and there are also over 80 positive reviews posted on Amazon.com
Another benefit that makes the Clarisonic brush sound attractive to me, is that it states it helps enhances your usage of other skin care creams and serums. By using the brush, it cleans your skin so that it better absorbs other skin care products, making them more effective.
The price of the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush does sound a tad expensive at $195, which includes free ground shipping. Although if it really does all that it claims to, then it might be worth it. Luckily, the company is offering a risk free trial of Clarisonic for 30 days. Unlike the other trials of creams and serums, you do have to pay the entire cost of $195 up front. However, if you return the brush anytime within the 30 days for any reason, you get a full refund back.
Update: This offer has expired
Included with the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush are two different brush heads. One for those with normal skin and one for those with sensitive skin, which is even more gentle. The product itself is waterproof so it can be used in the shower and bathtub. It uses rechargeable batteries and comes with a charging cradle. The brush has two different power levels, normal and low.
The usage instructions is fairly simple. It can be used with many types of non-abrasive cleansers. The company does include a 2oz supply of Clarisonic’s Daily Cleanser with the brush. You simply apply a cleanser and use the brush on the different areas of your face for a minute or two each. Afterwards you just rinse off your face.
Unlike microdermabrasion devices that shouldn’t be used everyday, Clarisonic is gentle enough that it can be used twice daily.
