For over two years, my trusty Clarisonic Skin Care Brush has kept my skin smooth, clear, and glowing.  This fabulous beauty gadget uses sonic technology to clean and exfoliate skin six times more effectively than manual cleansing alone.  Best of all, it works wonders on all skin types: dry, oily, sensitive, and everything in between.

Whether you are considering buying your very first Clarisonic or have had yours for awhile already, you won’t want to miss my five essential tips and tricks that will improve your skin and help you get the most out of your beauty investment.

 My Clarisonic with three brushes: Sensitive, Normal, and Delicate.

1.  Start with manual cleansing.  Hold your horses, beauty queen! Before whipping out your Clarisonic, I recommend washing your face the old-fashioned way: with your hands. This will loosen up stubborn dirt and debris and ensure even distribution of your face wash of choice. Before rinsing, use your Clarisonic to get your skin six times cleaner.

2. Experiment with different brushes.  With brushes for all types of skin conditions and concerns–including normal, sensitive, delicate, and deep pore cleansing–you will want to switch things up once in awhile.  Not only will this help you discover the perfect brush for you, but changing brushes every so often will allow you to enjoy all that your Clarisonic has to offer.

3. Remove the brush after each use.  This prevents nasty mold from building up inside your Clarisonic by letting it dry completely.  If you remember this tip, keeping your Clarisonic clean and germ-free is easy: just wash the unit and brush head with hot soapy water as needed.  (Since you’ll be washing your face anyway, you should already have these things on hand!)

4. Don’t press down too hard.  Like its predecessor, the Sonicare toothbrush, the Clarisonic cleanses with sonic technology.  Not only do you not need to apply much pressure to get results, but doing so may actually impede the Clarisonic’s sonic cleansing action.  Instead of pressing down, allow the Clarisonic to gently glide over your skin in a circular motion.

5. Remember your warranty.  About a year after purchasing my first Clarisonic, the unthinkable happened: it broke!  Luckily, I remembered my warranty, and after a quick and painless phone call to Clarisonic, they shipped out a brand new unit to me with a pre-paid shipping label for me to ship back the old one.  It couldn’t have been easier!

      Hi Lauren!

      If you need a little “beauty math” to convince yourself to take the plunge whenever you are ready, consider two things:

      1) Over the duration of its two-year warranty, the Clarisonic costs just a few pennies a day!
      2) A little product goes a long way when your skin is prepped with the Clarisonic, so you’ll save money on your skincare regimen!

      Okay. Done being a bad influence… for now. 8)

  2. Great post. Makes me want to go out and buy one!

    Thanks for these tips! Cleaning manually before and not pressing too hard are important factors in getting the most out of your clarisonic. I love my Clarisonic PLUS I got off of QVC (pink blossom color)

    I love my Clarisonic Mia! A very special & thoughtful friend gave it to me as a gift; lucky me for having both! I’m planning to buy the Pro version for body use; it has 4 speeds & 2 modes. I’ve been watching for a sale or special offer. Oh, actually from now on when I check on Amazon for pricing I will ‘click-thru’ from your site just in case you are registered as an ‘affiliate’ or whatever with them & I end up buying one. Hopefully you are, that will be my little ‘thank you’ for providing such a great blog to follow ;D
