The BEST of 2008 - Clarisonic Skin Care Brush.

I have only been using this high tech gadget for about two months now - if even that. But the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush has made such a difference in the way that my skin looks and feels, though, that is definitely my favorite of the year.

I use the Clarisonic twice a day. In the shower in the morning: I apply a pea sized dot of Philosophy’s Purity Cleanser in the center of the brush and start the brush up. I use it for one minute on my face and then another minute on my neck and chest. At night, after I remove my eye makeup, I use another dot of cleanser, usually Purity, but if I feel I am needing extra moisture, I might use a more creamy cleanser. I use the brush over my face for just a minute again, but skip the neck and chest as it is too messy to do that out of the shower.

Now, it could just be me, but I swear that my skin serums and moisturizers work much better too. My skin is obviously cleaner than by just washing, and I think this lets my products get right onto the skin - not the particles of dirt and oils that might be left behind without such a thorough cleansing.

Clarisonic is a more expensive product and the brush heads do need changing every 3 - 4 months at $25 a pop. But trust me. If you make the investment for the original $195, you will not be disappointed.

Do you have any idea how well the Clarisonic would work with a bar cleanser?

I'm absolutely in love with Lush's "Fresh Farmacy" bar soap, and I'm very happy with my skin ... but I also recall being "happy" with my toothbrush prior to owning a Sonicare, so I'd like to get a Clarisonic. However, I'd love to hear someone's experience with a bar soap prior to plunking down for one.
I know of friends who have used the clarisonic with such rewarding results. Their skin is much clearer, brighter, and even. I think this will be my next buy, simply because I have tried almost every facial cleanser there is with no noticeable results. Clarisonic, here I come!

Marina - I bet it would work just as well with a bar cleanser as it does any. You can apply the cleanser to your face first or just wet the top of the brush glide it over the bar before turning it on. Good luck and if you splurge and give it a try, please do let us know.
