Review: Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System

The Clarisonic has gained a ton of respect for its cleansing abilities and there are countless women out there singing its praises. Well, now its our turn. I’ve been using the Clarisonic Plus for well over a month now, and about a week into using it I was just kicking myself for not trying it out sooner. It really is all that and then some. I used to think that this was maybe a “nice to have” but I’m well into “need” territory now. For as diligent as I am with washing my face, even I can’t compete with sonic technology.

The Clarisonic math goes like this: More than 300 movements per second for 60 seconds equals a killer deep cleanse. I mostly use it in the evenings, but it’s certainly gentle enough to use twice daily. I can say without a doubt that the Clarisonic has improved the texture of my skin and is just what the doctor ordered for keeping those pores clear. Plus it’s so simple. I still follow my normal routine:  remove eye makeup and use my NARS Makeup Cleansing Oil all over. Then I put Clare to work (the name I’ve affectionately given her). It’s safe to use with any normal, non-abrasive cleanser which is nice.

Clare is such a workhorse, she:

  • Removes 6x more makeup than manual cleansing – Yes, even after my pre-cleanse removal, makeup still comes off. Gratifying yet disgusting!
  • Cleanses so well that products absorb better
  • Helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes
  • Helps reduce the appearance of visible pores

The Clarisonic Plus also comes with a body brush. I tested it out and while my skin felt smooth afterwards, I see myself using Clare mainly on the face. I’ll probably only bust out the body brush for a special occasion. I will say though, it’s nice to have the option. As a now believer in the powers of the Clarisonic, I really do think this is worth splurging on. Clarisonic gave  us this product to test, but I would purchase it in a heartbeat. I’ve already ordered my next set of brush heads from Sephora! It really is a worthy investment in skincare.

  1. Cindy, I am forever dependent on this thing now! I think I’m going to get my mom one for her birthday! She’ll never buy it herself, but I know she’ll love it.

    I’m reviewing the Opal next….:)
