About the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System

By Paul Favors

  • Overview

    From the lead inventor of the Sonicare toothbrush comes another technological innovation you can add to your daily beauty regimen---the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System. This cleansing brush moves at a supersonic rate to ensure deep cleansing that is way beyond your usual facial cleansing procedure, wherein you merely use your bare hands. The speed also enables deeper penetration of the beneficial ingredients in your facial cleansing products.
  • Function

    You can use the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush with any cleansing product you have. Nonetheless, the package includes three Clarisonic cleansers--the Clarisonic Nourishing Care Cleanser, Gentle Hydro Cleanser and Refreshing Gel Cleanser. Men can also use the cleansing brush with their preferred shaving lubricant to enjoy the same feeling of freshness. The brush is designed to gently massage pores and follicles to release excess oil and dirt. It also comes with a built-in timer to avoid over-cleaning. The timer is set for a 60-second session that starts with the forehead. The timer will beep after 20 seconds, prompting the user to shift to another part of the face. Another 20 seconds should be allotted on the nose, 20 seconds on the mouth area and the remaining 20 seconds should be spent for the cheeks---10 seconds on each one.
  • Features

    The Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System is a revolutionary cleansing tool that oscillates in a supersonic frequency of about 300 movements per second. Such rate allows the brush to micro-massage pores that in turn facilitates deep cleansing comparable to that of exfoliation. The brush is made of Dupont Supersoft, which ensures gentle vibration even at a sonic rate. The brush head itself is made of elastomeric non-porous and bacteria-resistant material. It is rechargeable and waterproof because the casing is well-sealed so it can be used in the shower. It is recommended that the brush head be replaced every three to four months. Wash the brush in warm water and facial cleansing soap. If the facial cleansing brush will be shared with family members, make sure that everyone has their own brush heads. The system comes with four brush heads. The white brush head is for sensitive skin, the blue brush head for delicate skin and the gray is for normal skin. There is a separate rechargeable waterproof skin care brush head. It is advised that a separate brush head be used for the face and the body.

  • Benefits

    The makers of Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System claim that the technology removes makeup six times more efficiently than the regular makeup removal procedure. It also removes sebum two times more effectively than manual cleansing. Clarisonic has become a tried and tested solution to various skin care concerns such as acne, blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles. Clarisonic is said to improve the function of any facial cleanser as it allows the nutrients on the solution to penetrate deeply into the skin. Therefore, it moisturizes skin, unclogs pores and exfoliates thoroughly.
  • Size

    The Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System is composed of a five-piece kit that normally includes the brush head, charger and three one-ounce gentle hydro cleansers. The package may also include other peripherals and additional brush heads, depending on the offer. The brush measures 7 inches in length and 2 ¾ inches in width.
  • Considerations

    There are no known restrictions or dangers in using the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System. In fact, using the timer ensures that the skin receives less exposure to harsh chemicals in the facial cleansing solution one is using. It is gentle on all skin types. For acne-infected skin, there will be a few breakouts during the first few days of use but this is a normal reaction as the skin is being removed of impurities. The only drawback to the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing System is the price tag, which is usually around $195.
