It’s that time of the year again… Oprah has officially announced her favorite things of 2015! We are thrilled that our Special Edition Keith Haring Artist Series made her list! The announcement was made in this month’s issue of O Magazine, with Clarisonic also appearing on the special Oprah Winfrey Edition of Good Morning America’s Deals and Steals.
In 2007, Oprah previously chose a Clarisonic device as one her favorite things and told her TV viewers at the time that “It is a miracle massage for your face!”
Today, Oprah says: “Works as a cleansing tool, looks like a party. This face brush, a collaboration between Clarisonic and the Keith Haring Foundation (which supports children’s education and AIDS-related organizations), buzzes with the late, great artist’s signature dancing figures and comes with a limited edition travel bag.”
Given the incredible demand in just 24 hours since the announcement, we are currently sold out of the Keith Haring special edition devices on Clarisonic.com. Please visit our retail partners if you are interested in these specific devices or shop our site for the many other Clarisonic devices still available!

For anyone who loves makeup, the best results all start with a great foundation of clean skin.

After 4 months, 3 makeup challenges and countless hours of filming, the 4th Annual NYX Face Award Winner, Mykie, aka Glam and Gore, was recognized.

In the final round of competition, the six finalists were treated to a Clarisonic facial at JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot spa in LA. See what these beauty experts had to say!

Art is for everybody, so is great skin. Introducing the Clarisonic Keith Haring Artist Series. Give joy, love and great skin.
This Holiday season, Clarisonic is bringing meaning to every gift you give. Help us celebrate the Keith Haring Foundation and its message of compassion by giving the gift of iconic art and great skin all in one gift.
Keith Haring was a true visionary who drew from the energy of the streets of New York to create simple, yet powerful images. Once he was living in New York, graffiti became his art form of choice- subway stations being his favorite location for his work. Keith Haring’s art exploded in popularity throughout the art scene in the early 80s, but it remained important to the artist that his work of love, humanity and expression was accessible to all.
Haring was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988. His diagnosis impacted his art, and in the last years of his life he dedicated much of his time speaking out about his experiences and supporting HIV and AIDS related organizations. In 1989 he established the Keith Haring Foundation – whose mission is to support non-profit organizations that provide educational opportunities to underprivileged children, as well as research and care related to AIDS and HIV.
Co-Founder of Clarisonic, Dr. Robb Akridge, shares the meaning behind this collaboration, “The art of Keith Haring—and the message of compassion that it communicates—is something that really resonates with all of us at Clarisonic. This is our first-ever artist collaboration and it will help support the meaningful work driven by the Keith Haring Foundation around the world. We’re excited and humbled to share Keith Haring’s art and message around the world.”

We are asking American men – and the people who love them – to up their game with skin care. As many of us have witnessed, men typically don’t take care of their face. We set out to determine exactly how men are, or aren’t, taking care of their skin. We commisioned an online survey conducted by Harris Poll where over 2,000 U.S. adults confirmed that men aren’t taking care of their faces as well as they could be. Sure, some men shave, but when it comes to cleansing their face, a majority (56%) use their hands – with one third (33%*) doing so with body wash or a bar of soap, 14%* using facial cleanser, and 9%* using their hands with just plain water.
Clarisonic Alpha Fit is specifically engineered to sweep away dirt, oil, sweat and pollution from a man’s tougher, thicker skin from the first use. The waterproof, compact design fits easily in a suitcase, gym bag, shower or bathroom cabinet and features a unique men’s brush head jam-packed with 26,000 bristles. The technology is easy to use with two simple settings – one for clean-shaven skin and one for bearded skin. After a month of use, 100% of men felt their skin was cleaner, more comfortable, and smoother2, and more than 90% felt their skin was energized, revived, and hydrated3.
“We’re thrilled to announce that Alpha Fit is available across the nation for all men to use and experience just how great it feels to have clean and healthy-looking skin,” said Dr. Robb Akridge, co-founder and global president of Clarisonic. “For over a decade, Clarisonic has been loved by women and men alike. But let’s face it, men’s skin is different and they deserve a Clarisonic device built just for them – providing a great cleanse, a better shaving experience and a way to clean the hard-to-reach skin underneath facial hair.”
Alpha Fit isn’t an extra step for men in their cleansing regimen, just a better one. To explain why cleansing with hands alone isn’t good enough, we created an infographic sharing the results of the Harris Poll and what those results mean when it comes to cleansing skin. Hands are the most exposed part of the body to germs, and on average, a man’s hand carries 3,200 bacteria from 150 species (about the same amount as found on a circulated dollar bill).1 Plus, men (17%) are more likely than women (12%) to admit they do not always wash their hands after using the bathroom* and men (76%) are significantly less likely than women (82%) to say they always use soap when washing their hands.* Not only are they using those dirty hands to wash their face, if they’re using a bar of soap to wash their face instead, which can actually dry out your skin, it can be assumed that they are also using the same bar of soap or cleanser to clean their feet, their derriere, and…some other body parts that shall remain nameless.
We aim to remind each man that investing in his face is the most important, most authentic, most long-term investment he can make.
So why cleanse your skin properly? Our response… ‘Because it’s your F-ing face!’
This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of Clarisonic from August 4-6, 2015 among 2,016 adults ages 18 and older, among which 1,089 are women, 927 are men, 667 are men who have facial hair, and 260 are men who do not have facial hair. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

Beards have quickly become one of the most popular trends for men. More men than ever are rocking every type of stylish, creative beard imaginable; needless to say the beard trend is in full-force. With this recent trend, beard grooming and beard cleansing have become increasingly important.
Beard or no beard, Clarisonic developed a cleansing solution specifically engineered for men’s skin. The Alpha Fit Cleansing Device has two settings to suit your facial hair preference. The first setting cleans and preps the skin for a closer, smoother shave for men who prefer to be clean shaven. The second setting is targeted for bearded men to provide a deep clean without tugging for a more comfortable beard. The invigorating brush head cleanses away sweat, dirt and oil for smooth skin and a clean shave. For the best results, pair these products with our men’s cleanser to help clean, energize and exfoliate your skin.
With our recent launch of the Alpha Fit, we thought who better to give us their feedback on this product than the beard experts themselves. Beardbrand, the original bearded lifestyle channel, provides beard grooming tips, bearded lifestyle content and honest opinions on beard care products in an attempt to “provide the tools necessary for men to feel confident about growing their beard, and … to end the negative stereotypes about beardsmen being lazy or unkempt.”
Beardbrand founder, Eric Bandholz, knows first-hand how difficult it can be to keep your face clean when you have a large beard. Getting to the skin beneath your beard in not an easy task and the lack of cleansing can cause increased production of oil, acne, in-grown hairs, dry skin, etc. Eric explains and demonstrates how using the Alpha Fit Device helps to keep his face clean and blemish free, beard and all.
In the words of Beardbrand themselves – “beard on!”
Throughout the day our skin is exposed to a tremendous amount of oil, dirt, sun, sweat and other bacteria. We know we need to clear our skin of this layer of build-up each and every night before bed. But how?
Finding the perfect nighttime skin care routine is not an easy task! You may be asking yourself questions like: How many steps should there be? What is the best order to complete the steps? What products should I be using? Am I using too many products? I’m tired; how long will this routine take? The thoughts go on and on.
The most important step to any nighttime skin care routine is the first step…. cleansing! In just 60 seconds, your Clarisonic cleansing device will remove the build-up of makeup, dirt and oil 6 times better than cleansing with hands alone. As a result, the Clarisonic provides increased absorption for the products you apply in the remaining steps of your routine. And just like that the first step in your nighttime skincare routine is complete. It’s that easy!
If you plan to add an additional step focused on reducing fine lines and wrinkles, we now have a sonic method for accelerating the reduction of those stubborn fine lines and wrinkles while building your skin’s resilience over time. Our Clarisonic Opal gently taps a soft silicone tip to the skin around your eye to maximize the absorption of eye serums and wrinkle-reducing creams in a way that’s not possible with your finger alone.
Want to learn more about how to incorporate your Clarisonic cleansing device into a nighttime skincare routine?
We would love to hear how your Clarisonic fits into your nighttime skin care routine!
We asked for your skincare concerns and you answered! In the last month you have been weighing in on your most important skin care concerns through our online Skin Care Quiz. There is no doubt we are all striving for perfect skin so we asked, “If your skin could make a wish, what would it be?” Over 14,000 people (or 21% of the men and women taking the Clarisonic Skin Quiz) are looking for ways to “Shrink my pores so my skin is softer and smoother.”
With so many Clarisonic users interested in minimizing the appearance of their pores, we thought we would look deeper into the question, how do you minimize the appearance of enlarged or clogged pores?
Let’s start by gaining an understanding of what pores are and their purpose. Bottom line, we need our pores. These tiny little openings allow oil and sweat to reach your skin’s surface. The good news is, while we cannot completely eliminate our pores we can make them appear smaller!
A simple Google search on this topic populates several products and regiments claiming to shrink and even eliminate your pores. In reality, the best way to reduce the appearance of pores is to keep your skin clean!
Why is clean skin so important?
Day and night, our skin is subject to oil, perspiration, dirt, and makeup. These combine to make a sticky, stubborn pore-clogging layer that can make our skin look unhealthy, feel rough and even cause irritation. This layer of film also acts as a barrier to skincare products resulting in reduced effectiveness. Cleansing your skin at least once or twice a day helps to dislodge any unwanted dirt, sweat, oil or makeup. Your pores will now be free of dirt and grime making your skin softer, smoother and allowing skincare products to absorb more deeply and evenly.
We are happy to lend a hand in the fight against enlarged and clogged pores. The first question our founders asked when developing the Clarisonic was “how do you unplug a pore?” and from that it evolved to “how do you transform the look and feel of your skin?”
How do Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Devices unplug a pore?
Clarisonic’s patented, perfected and loved Sonic Technology gently oscillates back and forth to physically flex the pores, loosening trapped debris and reducing pore appearance. Additionally, excess oily patches and shine are removed for a supersonic deep clean without irritation. Every Clarisonic facial cleansing device cleanses skin 6x better than hands alone to leave skin softer and smoother.
To take pore minimizing to the next level—check out our — Deep Pore Cleansing Detoxifying Solution, which combines a Clarisonic Mia 2 facial cleansing device with our Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head, Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and Deep Pore Detoxifying Clay Mask. Our Deep Pore solution uses our traditional sonic cleansing technology with additional powerful fluid forces to gently remove surface debris and immediately reduce the appearance of your pores by 25%.
If enlarged pores are not your main skin care concern, take our skin care quiz today to find out which Clarisonic products are best for you.
