  • Product Features: All of Your Brush Head Questions, Answered

    We often receive inquiries from Clarisonic users regarding the different brush head options for the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System. With all the fabulous options to choose from it can be tricky deciding which one is right for you! Here are some common questions and answers to give you better insight on choosing a brush head.

    What brush head came with my Clarisonic?

    • Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
    • o Limited Edition Hope Mia comes with a Sensitive Pink Brush Head.

    • Clarisonic Classic Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
    • o The Graphite Gray model comes with a Normal Brush Head.

    • Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
    • Clarisonic PRO Sonic Cleansing System: Sensitive Brush Head.
    • o The Graphite Gray model comes with a Normal Brush Head.

    What are the different types of brush heads?

    The available brush heads are: Delicate, Sensitive, and Normal. These are compatible on all of our units. The Body Brush is available for the PLUS and PRO models only.

    Why is the sensitive brush head standard?

    We have found this to be our most popular brush head. Therefore, this brush head is included with every new Clarisonic.

    Which brush head is best for my skin?

    Everyone’s skin is different and we suggest you listen to your skin when selecting a brush head. If you want a deeper cleanse, the normal brush head is slightly stiffer.  If you are experiencing dry patches or irritation, you might want to try the sensitive or delicate brush head. The delicate brush head is also designed for extra sensitive skin or for those suffering from complicated skin conditions.

    Can I use the body brush on the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Cleansing System?

    No. The Body Brush is only compatible with the PLUS and PRO models.

    Does each model require a different type of brush head?

    No. All facial brush heads work on any model (The Body Brush is only compatible with the PLUS and PRO models).

    Does the brush head spin?

    No. The brush head oscillates (back and forth motion) to provide a more gentle cleansing experience.

    Can I share a brush head with another person?

    We strongly recommend using separate brush heads because your skins differ in condition and we want you to achieve optimal results.

    Do I need to clean my brush head?

    Yes. While you may believe you are cleaning your brush head every time you cleanse, we suggest cleaning the brush head once a week using an antibacterial cleanser. For a more detailed tutorial on brush head cleaning, please read our previous Sonic Chatter Post: How Do I Clean My Brush Head?
