No matter his look, keep his face looking fresh with the Alpha Fit Men’s Cleansing Device – the cleansing device engineered for men’s skin.
Clarisonic is proud to annouce the introduction of our very first cleansing device engineered for Men’s Skin.
Men’s skin is different. Alpha Fit by Clarisonic is engineered to get men’s skin cleaner and healthier looking- clearing away sweat, dirt and oil. Alpha Fit cleanses 6x better than hands alone, while prepping face and neck for a smoother, closer shave.
This compact, waterproof device fits intuitively in the palm of your hand. Alpha Fit by Clarisonic has patented engineering designed specifically for men’s thicker, oilier skin. Sonic technology drives each rounded filament to oscillate back and forth at more than 300 movements per second to massage hair follicles, prevent ingrown hairs and loosen oil in the pores.
A closer shave, a cleaner beard and two settings to suit your style. The first setting cleans and preps skin for a closer, smoother shave. The second deep cleans beards without tugging for a softer more comfortable beard.
The Men’s Daily Cleanse Brush Head is designed with shorter bristles for men’s resillient skin. With an average of 27,600 filaments per brush head, the new Men’s Brush Head by Clarisonic has patented DuPont elastomer filaments that are super flexible for maximum torque and a deeper, more invigorating cleanse and shave prep.This invigorating brush head cleases away sweat, dirt and oil for smooth skin and a clean shave.
The Men’s facial cleanser helps clean, energize and exfoliate men’s skin. Alpha Cleanse by Clarisonic lifts and removes dead skin, oil and debris with Lactic Acid, Aloe, Ginseng and Caffeine. Fast-lathering gel formula with Aloe soothes skin post shave and helps soften and purify an existing beard. Alpha Cleanse is soap free and paraben free foaming cleanser that improves skin texture without over-drying.

Dads are notoriously hard to shop for. Not necessarily because it’s hard to pin down their interests, but because they have a knack for responding to every request for a gift list with: “Oh I’m fine. I don’t need anything.” It’s a line that probably never fails to make you smile, but it sure doesn’t make gift giving any easier.
Since dad hardly ever buys himself anything (and he definitely doesn’t ask for it), think carefully about what he owns that could use refreshing or replacing. Find a way to shave a few minutes off his daily routine so he has more time for fun. Think about that thing he always used to do but hasn’t done in a while. Make it something he’ll use and enjoy, not just another tie.
Here are our suggestions for gifts your dad is sure to love. If you enjoyed our 7 Simple Mother’s Day Gift Ideas, you’ll definitely like these too.
- Kitchen tools—whether he’s an everyday chef or a master griller, he’s sure to appreciate a new set of pots and pans or quality knives. If he likes to experiment in the kitchen, go with something more fun and creative, like a pasta-maker or a cheese-making kit.
- A Graphite Gray Clarisonic Cleansing System –for cleaner skin and a cleaner shave. Our Graphite Gray Classic was developed with men in mind and comes with our Normal Brush Head, which has shorter bristles that work well on men’s tougher, oilier skin. It’s a great way to prep for shaving and will make sure he gets a closer and more comfortable shave. If you’re planning to get one for your dad for Father’s Day, order it before June 11th and we’ll send a complimentary Deep Pore Brush Head along with it!
- A day at the ballpark –spend an afternoon cheering his favorite team on with him in the stands. When’s the last time you had a ballpark hotdog anyway?
- Time outdoors —if your dad is the outdoorsy type, get outside and go on a hike with him. Or take a look at his camping gear and see if anything could use a replacement. That tent he bought ten years ago won’t last forever.
- Magazine subscriptions—there’s a magazine for every interest—whether it’s photography, fly fishing, or travel—so sign him up for one and help him take his hobbies to the next level.

Vacation season is on the horizon and it’s time to think about getting swimsuit-ready.
Donning a bikini in front of others takes courage and confidence, but if you take good care of your body beforehand you’ll be beach-ready and worry free by the time you hit the sand. Just be sure to eat your full 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day, drink lots of water, and choose your beauty regimen with care.
Waxing: If you’re thinking of getting a bikini wax, do your research before deciding on a spa. Traditional waxing can be harmful to your skin and unsanitary if done incorrectly, so we tend to prefer sugaring (a natural, toxin-free process that only adheres to hair, so it won’t damage your skin).
Tanning: If you want to come to the beach with a glow, skip the tanning beds and try a self-tanner. You can check out our tips for getting the perfect sunless tan if you’re looking for options. And don’t forget to use and reapply sunscreen regularly once you’re out in the sun.
Cleansing: If you think you’re the only person out there with body acne, rest assured that you’re not. Everyone deals with it at some point, and getting rid of it is just a matter living a healthy lifestyle and cleansing regularly. The Clarisonic Body Brush Extension Handle makes it easy to deep-clean hard-to-reach spots like the middle of your back, your knees, and your feet.
Exercise: Try exercises that tone your body, like yoga or jogging. Just don’t stress out about it too much. Extreme dieting and last-minute sets of 100 sit-up repetitions won’t do anything for you but make you tired (and they might even cause more acne!).
Now, get out there and enjoy yourself. You deserve it!

Men have been shaving for hundreds of years and are still looking for ways to get a closer shave. Dr. Robb discusses whether men get a closer shave by prepping with the Clarisonic in this video.
Dr. Robb says, an ingrown hair is a medical condition and Clarisonic does not make any claims to cure or treat medical conditions. Ingrown hairs have a great name, Pseudofolliculitis barbae. What this means is men with Mediterranean and African decent with curly hairs and they grow back or get caught underneath. The Clarisonic is great because it helps to lift hairs off the surface of the skin, and that is why you will get a better shave. We actually did a study with 55 men that said they got a closer shave they felt; because the Clarisonic helped prep the skin before they shaved.
We all know that traditionally men spend less time dedicated to skin care than women, that doesn’t make the need any less important.
The first and single most important step is cleansing. It should be the basis of your skin care regimen and the one step that isn’t skipped. Men typically have larger pores than women and very active sebaceous glands. This means greasier skin that can lead to clogged pores – which in turn can lead to breakouts. Cleansing that removes dead skin cells and opens up pores is the best way to combat oily skin and prevent breakouts. The removal of dead skin on your face also aids in shaving. Not only does unclogging pores keep you free of ingrown hairs, but you will also be able to achieve a closer shave.
A great way to achieve clean clear skin and a closer shave in one step is to use the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System. The Clarisonic uses sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove 2x more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone.
Take a look at some of the posts from male bloggers that have used the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing system and start your journey to cleaner, smoother more kissable skin today.
At Clarisonic we are all about great skin care but the rules don’t just apply to women. For some men the Clarisonic is the first step in their skin care routine. Using the Clarisonic Cleansing System to apply shaving cream can improve your shaving experiencing by reducing irritation and razor burn for a closer, smoother shave.
