A lot of friends have asked me recently what I think of the Clarisonic cleansing brushes—do they really do anything? Are they worth the money? My answer, unequivocally, is YES and YES. And I don’t say this just because it feels good (it does) or because it seems more effective than using my hands or a washcloth (it is). And I definitely don’t recommend Clarisonic just because it looks so cute in pink on my sink. (You should see it against the white marble.)
I’m a huge fan of Clarisonic because there is actual science behind it. It’s no gimmick. There have been authentic studies conducted. The company has bonafide, proprietary sonic technology that powers the brush, separating it from imitators.
How it Works
Aforementioned proprietary sonic frequency produces over 300 movements per second. (This is not a rotating brush.) The flexing action works to loosen dirt and oil, enabling a much deeper cleanse, which leaves skin primed to better absorb your skincare. I use the Aria model shown above, which has three speeds, a timer to ensure even cleansing (unexpectedly helpful) and the ability to swap out brush heads.
60 Seconds to Use
Place cleanser of choice either directly on face or on the brush itself. Turn brush on speed of choice. Cleanse 20 seconds on forehead. 20 seconds on chin and nose. 10 seconds on each cheek. Rinse face, rinse brush. Voila!
Smoother, more radiant and, yes, cleaner skin.
P.S. Clarisonic recently launched a new skincare line that I LOVE called Sonic Radiance, pictured above.
