The Bottom Line

Clarisonic Skincare Brush is one of those rare products that is beloved by most everyone who tries it. Basically a tool for cleansing the face, you use the Clarisonic with your favorite cleanser to deep clean your pores. A great exfoliator, but with a hefty pricetag (up to $200).

Guide Review - Clarisonic Skincare Brush

Although these days cleansers should remove all traces of makeup and dirt on your skin, the Clarisonic skincare brush takes cleansing one step further: it exfoliates as well. If you are obsessive with skincare and looking for a simple way to keep your skin in tip-top condition, the Clarisonic Skincare brush is a good buy.

It cleans deeply, evens skin tone and is touted to get rid of blackheads and blemishes. Many users report their pores appear smaller after prolonged use.

I suggest trying it out for 30 days and if you don't like it, return it. The customer service department is famous for being wonderful if the tool breaks or needs to be replaced.

I also suggest using giving a good couple weeks before you should expect results. Start out gently with the sensitive brush and if you feel your skin can handle the medium brush, you can graduate to it.

What others are saying:

My mom bought one of these for herself, and she said I could use it also. I used it once, and within a day, my skin started clearing up and becoming smoother. I'm 15, so I have a small problem with acne. I have now used it twice, and my skin is almost completely clear. This is truly amazing, and it feels good to use. I strongly recommend this to anyone. It's worth the money.
