This makes my cleansing routine something to look forward to!
I don't know how I lived without one for so long. I thought it was just a fancy gimmick at first: a toothbrush for your face... but if you think about it, you don't brush your teeth with your fingers to get your teeth its cleanest now, do you? =P
This clever little device handles my dry flakey skin [thanks, winter!] when I normally have oily/combo skin. It's like a game to keep up with the beeps to switch spots on your face, and after it's all done, I get tempted to do a second cycle because I think I may have missed a spot, but the first cycle is all you need for a clean face.
The facewash/body wash I've given to the bf. I had a really bad reaction from trying to find a blush/contouring product that wouldn't break me out, and I've been trying to recover from the tiny little bumps all over my face for almost two months now. Once I added the Clarisonic to my 10% BP facewash, it kicked it into high gear, and now only 50% of the affected area remains broken out. That being said after only a WEEK of usage.
I leave my Clarisonic on my vanity to charge because I don't dare leave it in the bathroom that I share w/ my boyfriend. [boys are dirty... well, mine is at least.] and I know when it's time to cleanse, I pick up my Clarisonic for a date in the bathroom.
Wasn't the biggest fan of the pink [my gadget was gifted to me], but once I found it supported breast cancer awareness w/ my purchase, it won it's way into my hands and heart that much faster.
An investment worth every penny!
I purchased this at Sephora, specifically because it was the BCA model. It comes with the sensitive brush head which I think is a good starter brush, after 90 days I replaced it with the normal brush head. *I now replace my brush head every 70 days - I think 90 is too long, I feel the brush start to soften, like when you need to change your toothbrush.
I did not use the provided facial washes, I use Clinique Facial Soap Mild, exclusively, so I can not comment on any of those products.
This brush is amazing. My skin was visibly cleaner after the first use. It was super soft and smooth, there wasn't a trace of makeup or residue of SPF lingering. When I used my moisturizer, I noticed a completely different feel - it actually melted into my skin, not just sitting on top. Since this polishes as you work it along a specific and timed pattern, it removes all loose dead skin. This enable your skincare products to work more efficiently and consistently because they're not fighting with dead skin cells and dry patches. I discovered that I was using less of my moisturizers and serums, since they just melted in. My face always looks radiant and I'm proud to show off my skin.
It is super simple to use, your face is divided into a quad and you follow the beeps to move to your next quad. It takes less than 2 minutes.
My ONLY complaint: I wish the cord was detachable so I could leave the charging station on the counter holding my brush and the cord tucked away in a drawer.
I have used it for 2 years, 2 times a day, every day. I swear by it. If it broke, I'd race out and buy a replacement.
