  • Ask Dr. Robb: Does the Clarisonic help with razor burns or red bumps?

    Have you ever wondered whether the Clarisonic can help with razor burns or red bumps? Dr. Robb is here to answer the question in the video below!

    Clarisonic is excellent for prepping the skin before you shave, like if you are shaving your legs. No problem, because if lifts the hair and gets all that dead skin away from the base of the hair. If you are talking about ingrown hairs, that’s a medical condition and at Clarisonic we don’t make any claims on medical conditions.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Will the Opal help alleviate the look of aging around my eyes?

    Dr. Robb tells us how using the Opal to deeply hydrate the skin around your eyes can alleviate the signs of aging.

    Yes, when we invented the Clarisonic Opal, we wanted to hydrate the area around your eye better than you can with your finger.  Hydration is critical to diminish the signs of aging because as your skin loses all the moisture, it becomes dry and puffy, and you will have a lot of problems with the signs of aging. So what you want to do is use your Opal everyday twice a day to help you get the rejuvenated eye look.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Should I take my makeup off before using my Clarisonic?

    Whether your face is made up for stage or you’re an everyday beauty, this video will tell you whether you should remove your makeup before using the Clarisonic.

    Dr. Robb says it depends on how much makeup you use. If you are a professional, using stage makeup and you are in front of the cameras and your makeup is really thick and heavy, then yes, definitely remove some of it before using the Clarisonic; but for the average person, no problem.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Will I get the same results with any one of the systems?

    Do you want a Clarisonic but aren’t sure which system to buy? Dr. Robb tells us whether there are cleansing differences between the systems. For more information to help you make your decision, check out Dr. Robb’s post on the difference between the sonic cleansing systems!

    Dr. Robb says, yes you will! The technology is the same whether you have Mia or Clarisonic PLUS or PRO. They use the same Sonic Technology to oscillate your skin back and forth over 300 times a second to deeply cleanse you skin, and get your skin six times better cleansed than you can by hand.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can I use the Opal on other areas on my face?

    The first sign of aging that most people notice are eye wrinkles. These wrinkles, as well as the dark circles and bags that accompany them, may begin to appear when a person is still in their twenties and can become more noticeable with the passage of time. The Opal does wonders for the eye, but will it work on the rest of your face? See what Dr. Robb has to say in the video below!

    Yes, anywhere where you have crepey dry skin, it is also perfectly fine to use it between the eyes and around the mouth. People love the way it feels and how their skin looks after using Opal Sonic Infusion.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: What is the life expectancy of my Clarisonic?

    We know the Clarisonic is a skinvestment, so you want to make sure that your sonic system will be with you for the long-haul! In today’s video, Dr. Robb tells us how long you can expect your Clarisonic to last.

    Dr. Robb says: Believe it or not, we have a bazillion engineers here at Clarisonic that do tests on the units all the time. One of the tests they do is the “bench life test” where they plug in a Clarisonic and just let it run.  Based on those tests we know that your Clarisonic should last  3-5 years easily.

    How long have you had your Clarisonic? Let us know in the comments!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can I use my Clarisonic with Retin-A?

    Clarisonic is safe for everyday use, but can it be used along with Retin-A or another chemical exfoliant? Dr. Robb gives us the answer in today’s video!

    Dr. Robb says it depends on your skin type, some people can, and some people can’t. Remember those are chemical exfoliates removing the outer layers of the skin to give you the new healthier skin that lies below. Just listen to your skin as you are using it. The Clarisonic is perfectly safe to use every day, but when you use topicals that are using a chemical exfoliate for your skin; your skin may say, “Hold off for a while” but normally, every day is fine.

    Have you ever used a chemical exfoliant like Retin-A along with the Clarisonic? Tell us below!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is the Clarisonic safe to use with Accutane?

    Dr. Robb answers Karen from Facebook’s question about using the Clarisonic with a prescribed skincare routine such as Accutane. Find out what Dr. Robb suggests in the video below!

    Dr. Robb says that it’s up to your skin care provider to tell you if it is safe to use your Clarisonic if you are using Accutane. But we do know there are a lot of people who are on Accutane and they can use the Clarisonic on a daily basis.  We designed the Clarisonic to be gentle and effective even for people who have rosacea and acne rosacea ; but check with your skin care provider.

    Congratulations to Karen Rossbach who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!
