Honest reviews


Good for face, not for body

To me, this was strong enough to give your face an adequate scrub, but too weak for body parts. Plus when using it on the face, you have to give it a push in your face so you can really feel the strength of the bristles. It’s cute and all (I got the pink one), but I’m not too happy because it is expensive to have to just use on my face.

I just bought the pink one and I LOVE it so much!! Best thing ever!!

Lillian Beaver, OK

I’m amazed! Never expected such excellent results.

I want to preface my review by saying i’d never considered getting this product in the past and thought whats the use of a brush, i thought it was just a product from a company wanting to make money for something i could do with my hand and some cleaner.However, i met a girl who raved about it and said she used it every day and that it did wonders for her skin – and she did have amazingly radiant skin so i thought ‘what the hell, i should give it a try’ – and i’m glad i did.Firstly, the first few days it made my skin feel very taught but greasy/shiny. Though, this might be attributed to me working a lot but not sleeping much (that can wreck havoc with skin)Secondly, after using it for a little under a week, my skin is way softer than any peel, scrub etc can make it – its just so freakin soft and luminous!Thirdly, i have chapped lips ALL year round, so used this on my lips too while doing my face, and my chapped lips have disappeared! no more dry skin, no cracks, just regular lips for the first time in foreverFourthly, i have a rough patch on the back of my legs, and have been using this all week and theres a definate improvement. I’ll probably get the body head to maximize the benefits.So, overall my skin is way smoother, smoother than its ever felt and its super clear (tho i don’t really get that many pimples anyway), moisturizer seems to work better. My pores don’t seem to look any different yet – though its only been less than 7 days, its super hot here and i’ve been overworking and undersleeping.So, it seems like a stupid gadget that does nothing special but i’m actually shocked at how fantastic it is.Will add progress report in a couple of months esp once the winter wind begins!

$165.74 This was a better deal than I got from Sephora

Sephora wanted $225 for the 3 Speed Model and so does the Clarisonic website? Since I was able to get this at a discount from Payless thru Amazon the Clarisonic warranty is null and void. That is taking a lotta risk, but it was worth it to me to get the discount. It is Heavier than the Mia 2, naturally. The 4th speed cuts out quickly and makes a loud sound:( I got this because i wanna use it in the shower for my body. I thought it was gonna come with a body brush head, but it doesn’t:( It came with a sensitive brush, but I ordered a pack of (3) deep pore cleansing brushes from EZ4 Shoppings at $49.88, which is $16.63 each. The unit came partially charged, so I was pleased to be able to do Luis, my husband’s face, but I had to plug it in overnight to do my face.

I like it… some hiccups

I read quite a few reviews on this specific Clarisonic and was sure this product was good… and it is, aside from a few hiccups. Firstly, it doesn’t seem to hold a charge for very long and I am always concerned that I will overcharge it by accident since i’m constantly having to put in back on the charger, ugh. Secondly, after about 4 months when pushing the button to start a cycle it turned on but did not actually "Oscillating back and forth at a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second" as it claims. It would simply make a strange electronic sound but not oscillate. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work properly. Other than that, the product is good. Cleans my skin effectively, only okay at removing makeup and removes dead skin. I noticed with regular use, less breakouts (pimples and blackheads). iI’d purchase another one when/if this dies…. hopefully not anytime soon -_-

Clarisonic is the Best!! Bettter than Microdermabrasion

I have been using the Clarisonic for over 2 years and I love it. If I miss a day, I feel it; my skin products absorb nicely, my makeup is gone and frankly my dermatologist says my skin looks great. I just upgraded to the Mia2 and love it better than the Mia; Do yourself a favor and get this product. Make sure you get a cleanser that suds because otherwise it doesn’t work as well. Also, do your neck and chest every 3 days, around your ears helps to keep those age lines around your ears from showing up.

Feels wonderful

I have been using this for over a month and my pours are completely clean. No more blackheads. Worth every penny.

Love it!

The Clarisonic was recommended to me by a friend, I decided to choose this model because of all the options and I’m glad I did. I love that you can switch from sensitive to normal settings and I bought the body brush and deep cleansing one as well. If you fill out the registration info you can get a coupon for $25 off $50 @ so I recommend doing that. Also, I love the cleansers that come with it and I have bought a larger size of one of those as well. It’s nice that they give you 3 different cleansers which not all of them offer, so that you can see which works best with your needs. For as expensive as it is, Amazon offers a great price and it sure is worth it! I even have my boyfriend using it!

Does NOT perform MIRACLES, but is a GREAT product backed by EXCELLENT customer service

This review is from: Clarisonic PRO Deluxe Professional 4-Speed Skin Care System with Spot Therapy Kit, White (Health and Beauty)I purchased myClarisonic PRO Deluxe Professional 4-Speed Skin Care System with Spot Therapy Kit, Whitefive (5) months ago directly from Amazon. I REALLY like it, as well as the results. I don’t know if it is worth $225, but I haven’t found anything else that delivers the same results. Let me start off by saying that it does NOT perform miracles, but I do see results. I have (that is, had) flakey combination dry/T-ozone oily skin. Now, no more flakes, less visible lines and just a generally smooth overall appearance. Again, no miracles, but clearly nicer looking skin. I personally think the level of results that you see depends on the cleanser you use with the Clarisonic. I saw WAY better results using Neutrogena products, than I did using other products. So, finding a good face cleanser for your skin type is definitely key to seeing the best results with the Clarisonic.I’ve used the various Sonicare toothbrushes for years and loved the results, which is what attracted me to the Clarisonic. And, yes, Clarisonic has the same EXCELLENT customer service as Sonicare. I was a little hesitant since one reviewer said that Amazon was not an authorized seller. Anyway, after two months of use, my handle was taking forever to charge and then not holding the charge. I called Clarisonic’s 800 # for customer service. They didn’t even ask me WHERE I purchased it, they just asked for the serial number. They told me that my brush had a full 3-YEAR warranty (that all Clarisonic PROs purchased in 2010 were protected one-year longer than the standard 2-year warranty). They immediately sent me out a FULL replacement via UPS and a pre-paid UPS label to send my defective one back. VERY HAPPY with that level of customer service that is rare these days!The one thing that I do not like about the handle is that it does NOT hold a charge for very long. And, unless you speed race over your body, there won’t be enough charge to do your body and your face at the same time. It certainly does not hold a charge like a Sonicare. So, if you are traveling, you will need to bring the charger.A few things I noticed about the Clarisonic and some suggestions …1. Facial cleanser used determines the results you will see with the Clarisonic. The better the face cleanser for your skin type, the better the results.2. Take the brush head off after EVERY use and wash the handle and brush good. Leave the brush off to air dry while the handle charges.3. I usually clean my face for 2-3 cycles of the face cleaning (i.e., I go over my face 2-3 times) because the face cleaning is on a timer and shuts off. (Beeps like the Sonicare to tell you to move to the next section.)4. If you have bad acne, use caution. You might want to use on one small section to see the results BEFORE you do on your entire face. I noticed that initially it made the acne more obvious. But, after using several times, it actually cleared it up faster and gave an overall smoother appearance/complexion. But, I personally, do not have bad acne … just an occasional blemish on my forehead or nose (and I noticed it initially … but not anymore).5. Worked great on smoothing knees and elbows.Overall, with the EXCELLENT customer service and GREAT results, I give this product 5 STARS. I just wish it weren’t so expensive. Although, the price has come down since I purchased it back in May for $225.UPDATE APRIL 2011: In January 2011 my REPLACEMENT HANDLE stopped holding a change AT ALL. It would sit in the charging cradle, show fully charged and the battery would INSTANTLY die when the on button was pressed. Again, I called Clarisonic’s 800# and explained my problem (that the handle was not holding a charge). They were very nice, asked for my name (I was already in the system from the previous replacement) and the serial # on the handle. I received my replacement handle and charger via UPS within a week (along with a prepaid label to send the defective/non-working one back). This replacement looks slightly different. The charger plug is now a regular small plug (a definite improvement), not a huge hair dryer type plug (like was on the previous 2 I had) and the writing/font on the handle is a slightly different color. Also, the brush head fits tighter and is a little more difficult to taken on/off (nothing out of the ordinary, but definitely not a loose/easy fit like the first 2). I have been using this latest replacement for almost 2 months with no problems, but the 3-4 month mark is where I had problems on the other 2. I will update this review if this replacement starts to have issues.

Make sure you register it!

Overall, I LOVE my Clarisonic. My skin has never looked better. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the longevity of the unit. I purchased my first Clarisonic in May 2010. By November 2011, it was acting up; the "pro" comes with a body brush mode and even though I had the face brush on it, it was in body brush mode and wouldn’t come out. I called Clarisonic customer service and, they determined that my unit needed to be replaced. They shipped a new one out to me at no charge! When I got it in the mail, I went to the Clarisonic website and promptly registered it. Jump forward to November 2012, I took it on vacation with me and by the time I got to my hotel room, the unit had no charge. The literature states it should hold a charge for at least 4 days. So, when I got home, I fully charged it and then took it off the charger and 8 hours later, it was dead. Since it usually sits in the charger, I didn’t call Clarisonic at that point. This week (January 2013), it went into body brush mode! I called Clarisonic and they are sending me another one! A friend of mine who also has a Pro had hers go into body brush mode after about 17 months and Clarisonic sent her a new one. So on average, they seem to last about 14 months. Thankfully, Clarisonic has a 3-year warranty on these things and are willing to replace them with not too many questions. I guess it is better that it dies in 14-17 months versus dying after the warranty is up. These units aren’t cheap – even after the issues I’ve had, I think they are worth every penny.

Just got it and already feel a difference!

I had heard good things about the Clarisonic Pro but was skeptical. I just received mine yesterday and after charging it for 24 hours as recommended, I used it this morning. I had to resist the temptation to push too hard, like when I scrub my face with a washcloth, because they said not to. I couldn’t believe that only one minute was needed for my entire face, but that is what the instructions read. It beeps and pauses to let you know when to move to another part of your face. I used the blue cleanser that came with it to clarify and balance. I must say, after one minute of use, I rinsed my face and applied moisturizer, and it absorbed into the skin VERY quickly, which it had not done before. I could almost feel the pores drinking it in! My face also felt so smooth after just the one treatment, I am looking forward to feeling it after a week of use! It really cleared the pores as advertised. I think I am now addicted to this machine, and will really love it! I have used so many scrubs and cleansers over the years, this is a real treat as it is so easy and no scrubbing required. It really is amazing and does what it says. I have mild adult acne once in awhile and I think this will work great for that. I feel so squeaky clean now, I am ordering the body brush, too. I would recommend this product so far, I hope it doesn’t break down in a couple weeks or months! There is a good guarantee, too. I decided to spend more to get the pro model after reading some negative reviews about the cheaper models breaking down. We’ll see if it is worth it in the long run.

I love it

I love this product. My face looks so much better already and its only been a month. My husband even uses it now because he noticed how fabulous my skin looks. I ordered more brushes because i dropped mine in the shower and parts broke off but its still useable. Thanks for a great product..

Best Invention Ever!

This product is incredible. All the good reviews are true. I’m 31 and have had acne my whole life. I’ve been using this product for 4 months in conjunction w/ Obagi products and I am acne free. My skin is brighter and looks healthy. It’s incredible. Good luck!
