Clarisonic: The Best Thing Since… Ever.

So, I pride myself on getting in at the ground floor of many things. But I’m SO SO late to the Clarisonic Skin Care System ($195) party. Like, I showed up after all the Prosecco’s been cleared out and there are drunkards passed out on the couch and the host is irritatedly washing dishes standing on a sticky floor. You know?

Clarisonic launched in 2005 and here I am, telling you about it in 2009. Oprah was even a bit late to the party when she proclaimed the Clarisonic one of her Favorite Things in 2007. I mean, next, I’ll be all, “Oh, hey, guys! There’s this new social networking site called Friendster! And guess what? It’s TOTES difficult to date in NYC. And I predict Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey might not MAKE it. I know! You can’t BELIEVE.” You get the idea.

The Clarisonic vacuums pores, eradicating dirt, makeup and oil. It’s the Dyson of skin care. Scratch that. It’s the Sonicare® of skin care. Just as I lurve my Sonicare Healthy White R732 and the way it beeps to tell me to clean another quadrant of my mouth, I love that my Clarisonic does the same thing. Its brush uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth your skin. The results definitely passed my rigorous do-I-want-to-feel-up-my-face? test requirements. I even noticed my pores looked clearer and that blackheads are far less visible after only a COUPLE of uses. My skin tone thus felt much more even and resulted in my needing less foundation than ush. Now the price is kind of egregious, but I’d consider this a worthy investment that you’ll use daily (twice a day, per the product’s instructions) much like I consider the T3 an indulgent necessity. The Clarisonic removes so much makeup that even though I pre-washed my face, there was still dingy greyish GUNK on my brushhead. Satisfaction City, population 1.

I can’t wait to go home and brush my face.

    Long time reader de-lurking here.

    I’ve used my Clarisonic twice daily now for 14 months and I adore it . I am a tad finicky about keeping things nice and clean so I rinse the brush with hyd. peroxide after each use.

    I wish they made a smaller travel size, I really missed mine when I had to travel to a wedding.

    Best regards .

    I am keeping my fingers crossed for Hanukah, Simcha Torah or Flag Day that my husband will get me the new body one. I can’t explain to him how much I need this.

    I love this thing. I keep it in my shower. But I’m mad that now they have a NEW one for the body and you can’t just buy a new brush head, you have to buy the whole thing–what a rip, like i want to spend another $225!!

    I’ve been DYING to try this but I’ve heard some negative feedback on the twitter-universe. However, I totally trust your opinion. DYING.

    This might be worthy of an investment considering the legions of blackheads that have taken up house on my nose. EW.

    I have been on the Clarisonic bandwagon since 2005 and lemme tell ya…LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I too love that I use Purity and take off all my makeup then I use this thing and I still see “gunk”! I love that my face tingles when I put on my face cream because of the extra clean factor! Honestly the best investment for skin I have seen in a long time.
