The eye is the jewel of the body – Henry David Thoreau. The quest for younger and more refreshed looking eyes is not a new one. Tips and tricks have been passed down for generations and new technologies have been created to answer the need.
One such technology and the jewel to the Clarisonic family, is the Opal. The Opal Sonic Infusion System uses proven sonic technology to apply eye serum better than manual application. In just one minute, the Opal provides more than 7500 gentle micro-massages to instantly hydrate, smooth and brighten the eyes.
We asked our fans to share their secrets to keeping their eyes hydrated whether they used the Opal or not. We got some amazing stories; we are sharing three with you here and have ten that have won our Opal Secret contest. Congratulations to all of our winners!
Featured Opal Secret stories:
“Redneck” Sonic Regimen
Well, I don’t own a Clarisonic Opal so here’s what I do instead…and don’t laugh… I use the back side of my Sonic toothbrush to help apply my night serum, (different brush head of course). I realize that this is no comparison to the Clarisonic Opal but I’m using what I’ve got because I know how beneficial it is. So until I get the real thing, this is what I do.
Men’s eye remedy
I am a guy who takes pride in his appearance. Recently I have been noticing my eyes have look tired and puffy (probably the increased stress of trying to run my live like a crazy person through work and school, trying to do the work of five people all by myself, deffinately not recommended..) I started to look for a solution. Your eyes can easily be the first thing someone will notice about you and they are usually first to show any signs of aging!… So I set out for a way to cure. To tackle the puffiness I began using a de puffing eye gel. I started with the Body Shop’s Eye Depuffer. It worked wonders I would notice my eyes significantly decreasing in puffiness. Much of it was extra water under the eye lids so at times I looked and still looks like I am crying, not to say my eyes get red and I make an ugly face, anyway I think you get the picture. My next step was to find a eye cream to help keep my eyes bright and awake and get rid of that oh so chic I just got punched in the eye look. I ended choosing Clique’s all about the eye, it was very feminine but the sales associate at Sephora helped me realize that the skin around a woman’s eye and around a mens eye really aren’t all that different. After that? poof those dark circles were minimized. My eyes were back in business and I am glad I took that step… lets be honest who wants to look punched and puffy?
The BEST under eye trick
When I was in college I worked at a makeup counter at the mall. One of my co-workers was an amazing makeup artist that had just moved from NYC so I was so excited to learn his tips and tricks. The one thing that he told me that I remember to this day and always share with people is……when applying under eye cream ALWAYS apply it and blend it from the outside of your eye inwards towards your nose. Why you ask? Well….the fine lines and crows feet that form tend to start out closer to the inner corners of your eye and expand outwards so everytime you put on under eye cream you want to be lightly tapping and blending the cream in the opposite direction they form to make sure the product really gets in there. If you put on under eye cream twice a day that is a lot of pulling and dabbing on the under eye area over time so it’s better to be smoothing it on in the opposite direction that they form. I swear this works! I used to have one line in particular that was fairly deep and I would notice it when I would get tan because it would be white from squinting while I was out in the sun. Since I started applying under eye cream from the outside of my eye towards the inside my lines have completely and very noticeably smoothed out! For some reason I had always put under eye cream on from the inside out which I know a lot us you do becuase it seems more natural to apply it this way but it’s the complete opposite of what you want to do. I love sharing this trick with people and I swear you will notice a difference if you try it!

We have teamed up with Bon Appétit for their June issue! At Clarisonic, we feel empowered by taking our skincare into our own hands with Sonic Cleansing, but we also practice this motto when it comes to eating healthy.
We have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What you eat can affect your skin’s glow and it’s important to start your day off right. Therefore, we are asking Bon Appétit readers and our fans what they do in their morning ritual to keep their skin healthy from the inside out.
Here are our favorite super foods that we eat to keep healthy in addition to using our Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System every morning:
With more protein than regular yogurt, Greek yogurt will surely start your day off right with plenty of vitamin A to keep your skin glowing.
Fruits such as blueberries, pomegranates, and strawberries are packed with antioxidants to fight off free radicals and keep your skin glowing.
Whole Grain Toast with Almond Butter
Whole grains are great for the skin! Skip the butter or sweetened jam and opt for protein and fiber-rich Almond Butter.
With plenty of value-added mixes like flax seed, pumpkin seeds and wheat germ, granola is a great way to get a daily dose of super foods.
We’ve all heard of the recent juice detox and there’s a reason for it. Fresh juice provides you with the essential vitamins found in fruit without having to break down the actual fruit.
Most importantly, don’t forget Water. Keep yourself hydrated for optimal mind, body and skin. Drinking water from the moment you wake up can jump start your system for the day!
Now tell us what you eat to stay healthy and your morning skincare routine for a chance to win a Clarisonic and dinner for two by visiting the contest page!

Last year the Clarisonic Elf took over the Clarisonic Twitter and set out to capture the perfect Clarisonic holiday jingle, poem or song. We heard from lots of super fans and received a number of really impressive jingles. However, @_susan knocked our holiday socks off with her sonerific rendition of Twas the Night Before Christmas.
The Night Before Clarisonic
‘Twas the night before Clarisonic, and all through the land,
The skin of the townsfolk was blemished and bland.
Their cleansers were used, nightly with care,
In hopes they would wake and have skin that was clear.
The teens were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of smooth skin danced in their heads.
I, in mint julep, and pa in his cap,
had just settled down for a long winters nap.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Not giving a thought to my minty face mask.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.
When what to my wondering eyes would appear
but the Clarisonic Elf bearing Clarisonic gear!
I wasted no time, moving lively and quick.
drew her inside and invited to sit.
With her luminous skin, so rosy and bright
I knew my skin woes had ended that night.
Most rapid are sonic oscillations, she explained
As she showed me each one, and gave me their names:
Choose Classic, or Mia, or Clarisonic Plus
you’ll be glowing all over with its full body brush.
From the top of your head to the tips of your toes,
Skin so silky smooth, you’ll look 20 years old.
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
Dry scales disappear and your skin comes alive!
I listened intently, took in every bit,
Clarisonic intervention’s an awesome event!
As all good things must, our time came to an end,
but she left me a gift that will continue to give.
A tip of her hat, a twirl and bow, she then shimmered and glistened and flew round and round.
And I heard her exclaim ere she flew out of sight,
“Clear complexions to all, and to all a good night!”
The Clarisonic Elf loved hearing jingles, songs and poems last year so we decided to bring it back! This season we invite you to join in song with the Clarisonic Elf. Each week leading up to the holidays we invite you to submit your most creative Clarisonic Jingle to the Clarisonic Facebook. Post your jingle to our wall, share it with your friends and every Friday between now and Christmas we will pick a winner. If your jingle wins you will receive a Clarisonic product for yourself and in the spirit of giving another system that makes a great gift for the holiday season! You can even give the gift of Clarisonic or shop – all without leaving Facebook. Finally, we’ll also be accepting nominations on Twitter for Random Acts of Clarisonic – nominate a deserving friend using the #ClarisonicElf hashtag.
Clarisonic would like to thank those who participated in the inaugural Esthetician Super Fan contest, recognizing estheticians nationwide for their day-to-day commitment to skin care. We received remarkable skin care stories and testimonials from estheticians and their clients, making the judging process a challenging one! We’re proud to announce the grand prize winner, five esthetician finalists and three client winners whose entries showcased how their skin care regimens have benefited from Clarisonic products.
Five winning finalists received a Spa Day Getaway to a local Clarisonic account spa (dependent on winner location). One grand prize winner received, in addition to a Spa Day Getaway, an all-expenses paid trip to Seattle, Washington, to film a behind-the-scenes video of Clarisonic headquarters (scheduled for 3 days and 2 nights in February). Additionally, the grand prize winner also received an all-expenses paid trip for the winner and one guest to Los Angeles to be Clarisonic’s VIP guests during the AFI Film Festival in November. Selected clients who submitted success stories on behalf of their winning esthetician won a Clarisonic Spa Gift Basket valued at more than $500!
Congrats to our Grand Prize Winner Maria from North Prairie, WI!
“Glowing, firmer, fine lines diminished, smaller pores, my skin looks radiant, I look younger since using the Clarisonic. These are the results I personally experienced. I have combination skin, my skin was looking dull with uneven texture, but now the serums and lotions penetrate beautifully. I started getting compliments 3 weeks after introducing the Clarisonic. The body brush head gave me a closer shave on my legs. I took my Clarisonic to Italy, fully charged to show my daughter, she loved it and noticed the difference in my skin. She wants one now. My Clarisonic is my BFF.”
