  • Why Should Men Care About Cleansing Their Face?

    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.

    Alpha Fit, Clarisonic’s new sonic cleansing device for men, is designed to cleanse men’s skin 6X better than using hands alone and effectively cleanse both shaven and bearded skin.

    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!’

    *Survey Methodology

    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.

  • Nighttime Skin Care Routines

    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?

    Blogger and Youtuber, Laryn Michael, shares how using the Clarisonic SMART Profile in her nighttime skin care routine leaves her skin feeling healthy and blemish free, especially during pregnancy!

    We would love to hear how your Clarisonic fits into your nighttime skin care routine!

  • How to Shrink Pores

    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.”

    SkincarequizWith 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%.

    Deep Pore Detoxifying Solution in Action

    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.

  • The 16 Emotional Stages of Getting A Clarisonic For the First Time

    We are happy to feature fashion and beauty blogger Jodie Layne’s post “The 16 Emotional Stages of Getting a Clarisonic For the First Time”. I enjoyed reading about the many stages Jodie experienced while falling in love with her Clarisonic Mia 2. Can you relate? Share your Clarisonic love stories on this post!

    Charley Gallay/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images

    I’ve had my Clarisonic Mia for nearly two years now (happy early anniversary, xo) and every single day that I use it in the shower I try not to think about how empty my life was before this little magic wand came into it. Or how empty my beauty cabinet was. A Clarisonic is essentially a facial cleansing brush that uses sonic technology to brush your skin over 300 times a minute — resulting in the cleanest, softest face of your life on the regular. Seriously. I used to work at a spa and one of the perks was a monthly facial, but the Clarisonic makes my skin feel even better than it did then. Having an electric brush that’s sole purpose is to clean your face makes me feel like a princess, and I’m not sorry about it.

    I wanted a Clarisonic long before it was mine, as so often happens in many of the other great love stories out there. Since the day I first knew that I needed it in my life, attaining and using a Clarisonic has been a total emotional roller coaster. I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. I’ve washed my face. Well, I did those three things in relation to the little miracle worker, anyway — and I don’t regret a single moment. So whether you received one as a gift at the holidays or you’re saving up to take extra care of your skin in the new year, here’s what you need to be emotionally prepared for:


    “It’s a brush? For my face? Does that even feel good? Why would I spend over a hundred dollars on a brush for my face? Well, mayyybbeee…”


    Once you’re interested, you try and find out how it works, but mostly why it works. If you’re really going to do this thing, you’re going to do your research, which means lots of reading about sonic technology, oscillation, and skin elasticity. Look at you, pretty and smart.


    You know that you want one and feel sufficiently satisfied by the scientific evidence. But can you really justify dropping that much money on a replacement for the free things at the ends of your arms you already use to wash your face?

    4. BUYING IT

    With the conviction of a global warming denier, you believe you need this in your life and you’re ready to do this thing. You might march right down to Sephora and buy it to spare the wait, but you’re probably going to e-order it online at midnight. Pressing “check out” is such a rush!


    5 to 7 business days feels like a cruel eternity.


    When it finally touches your hands and you can see it and you caress its beautiful curves, that is simply a beautiful moment.


    It’s in your grubby little paws and you can’t wait for your life to change and to get it on your face. You read the instruction manual carefully. You have to charge it for eight hours?! IS THERE NO GOD?!


    It feels…weird. Not like you expected. Wait, it actually feels pretty good! Yeah, this feels nice! Like a million little kisses from angels all over your face. No, wait — now it feels weird again.
