We greatly appreciate the feedback our customers provide us, and wanted to share this great Before & After story from a Clarisonic user. As you can see in the images below, after only 7 days of using Clarisonic, Amanda Trudy Blyskal showed significant improvements in skin tone and texture.
Here are some more great Before & After shots:
Sonic cleansing is the natural way to thoroughly cleanse all skin types. And unlike skin treatments that use harsh chemicals or rely on friction to remove impurities, the sonic micro-massage motion is effective, yet gentle enough to use twice a day – even on sensitive skin. This effortless action removes six times more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone.

Normal vs. Sensitive, Deep Pore Cleansing or Delicate; how are all of these brush heads different? Dr. Robb explains the differences between our brush heads in our latest edition of Ask Dr. Robb.
Ask Dr. Robb: Explain the difference between brush heads.
Dr. Robb is displaying a Clarisonic PRO with a Sensitive Brush Head. All Clarisonic handles come with a Sensitive Brush Head attached. The Sensitive Brush Head is the middle of the road brush head. The Clarisonic was designed with different brush heads because everybody’s skin is different, and throughout the year your skin changes based on the seasons. Sometimes you may want to use the Sensitive Brush Head, other times you want to switch over and try the Normal Brush Head. Guys love the Normal Brush head – it has the gray base. The Normal Brush Head is great for applying shaving cream and then shave afterward and have an incredible smooth shave. The other brush head that we have for a different skin type is the Delicate Brush Head it has a blue base. The Delicate Brush Head was actually launched in Japan to start with, because the Japanese have very sensitive skin. But now it is so popular, it is sold throughout the world. For those who have super delicate skin.
We changed our focus on Brush Heads, we went from different skin types (Sensitive, Normal and Delicate) to different skin conditions. This is one of them, see the blue ring of bristles? It is called, the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head. It is great for those people who have oily skin and those congested pores around their nose that are hard to reach, and on the tops of the cheeks. This has a different movement than our other brush heads, the bristles in the center move one direction, while the outside bristles move the other direction. This allows you to get focused cleansing in very concentrated areas right around the pores. Then we’ve gone to the Acne Brush Head it’s a great product if you have acne conditions because it creates more foam, and bubbles. When you use the Acne Brush Head you will see more lathering, this is because there are more bristles per tuft. Finally the last brush head is the big one called the Body Brush. If you have a PRO handle it knows it is a Body Brush and changes the speed and timer moves a little more vigorous. Great for the elbows, knees, back area and moves at different frequency than all the other facial brushes.
Those are the differences between the Brush Heads pick out which one fits your skin best and go for it!
We all want smooth radiant skin and using the Clarisonic is one way to achieve it. Dr. Robb answers whether using a facial scrub with our system is too much.
Dr. Robb says we don’t recommend you use facial scrubs that have odd shaped particles like pointed pieces of sand or grit. Round spheres are no problem. What Dr. Robb does is use the Refining Skin Polish that comes with the Clarisonic PLUS once a week on his face and every other day, uses regular face wash.
Super models such as Miranda Kerr and Molly Sims have been onto this trend for a while. The secret is now out as to how they get their smooth fresh looking skin. Dry brushing is a very simple and effective way to stimulate your skin and increase blood flow. Soft bristled brushes are perfect for dry brushing (like the Body Brush on our PLUS system).
To start your skin transformation, begin brushing gently in a circular motion while your skin is dry. Brushing on dry skin will allow for more skin to slough off. After working from your feet up; take a shower to remove any dead skin and finish with a good moisturizer for extremely smooth skin! Dry brushing has been known to help your skin look younger, giving you a fresh glow your serums and creams work better too. Have you ever tried dry brushing? If so, what do you think? If you haven’t, give it a try and tell us what you think!

We love taking vacations but we can’t risk taking a vacation from our skincare. We often recommend the Clarisonic Mia for traveling because of its compact size, but many fans also take their full size systems on-the-go as well. Depending on where you are traveling to, you might wonder, will my Clarisonic work?
The Clarisonic Mia, PLUS and PRO all have a universal charger or charging cradle. The universal charger is compatible with international and domestic outlets (100-240 Volts AC; 50/60Hz), with the respective country plug adapter. Therefore, these Clarisonic systems are capable of working worldwide.
If the shape of the plug does not fit the outlet, use an attachment plug adapter of the proper configuration for the power outlet. Most travel stores sell these common county-specific adapters.
Remember, when fully charged, the Clarisonic Mia lasts for 20, 1-minute uses and the PLUS and PRO last for 30, 1-minute uses (20, 1-minute uses with the body brush attachment). If your vacation is only a week long, you may not even need to bring your charger or charging cradle.
Now the only other issue is how to fit your skincare products into those tiny bottles. Good luck and happy travels!
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 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?
