Anyone have one? Want one? Know someone with one? lol, I'm very tempted to ask Santa.
Have it. love it. You must use it every day and it definitely makes pores smaller. acne is still here, but I am looking into laser options.
They also have a new product out called the Tanga I believe.

Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

I had a HORRIFIC experience with ClariSonic!!!!!!!!!
I too read the reviews, watched the ads etc and was too excited to try it. Managed to find one for £120 with a free sample of facewash. For the first week there was a little improvement.
The following two months, I had the worse acne I have ever had. I broke out everywhere. I know it was the clarisonic because nothing else had changed. I never usually wash my neck, but decided to use the ClariSonic on my neck and I broke out there too. obviously everyone reacts differently but as soon as I stopped using it my skin improved.
It's now gathering dust in a draw. I switched to a UV Light instead, much better.

I got my Clarisonic Mia about five months ago and love it. I use it once a day in the shower. It makes my skin feel SO smooth and clean, and also really helps keep my big pores clear. My pores clog very easily, but with my Clarisonic, they don't. I can't go a day without using it basically...it's a skin necessity now!
I didn't have an IB with it, but I did get some dryness in my skin at first. I always moisturize right away after getting out of the shower so that's not a problem anymore.
I guess how the Clarisonic will work for you depends on your skin. For me, it's great, for others, it's not.
Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel (European version) + Clarisonic Mia
Apply CeraVe AM Moisturizer w/ SPF 30
Apply Aczone (dapsone)
Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel + Clarisonic Mia
Apply CeraVe PM Moisturizer
Apply Epiduo (adapalene + benzoyl peroxide)
50 mg of Spironolactone

I had ordered one of these for christmas time but upon reading more reviews and researching more into it, I decided to send it back.
I've read some awful things about it and to be honest, didn't want to risk it and basically throw £150 down the drain on a product that makes my skin worse/makes no difference.
I just felt it was far too pricey and too much of a gamble for me to take personally.
Instead I am focusing more on products, I have started using Environ products and I am in love!

I bought one and have been using it for over a month now, it was over my usual skin care budget but has been worth it so far.
I've used other facial brushes before but this one has been the most impressive. The others I've tried have done little to actually clear my pores and have irritated my face. The Clarisonic is quite gentle, has different settings (I have the MIA 2) and different brush options for more sensitive skin (although I've been fine with the regular brush head that comes with it).
I wish I had a before and after picture I could post. However, in a month's time:
- My blackheads are gone, which I always had on my nose and chin. The pores are now completely clear
- My breakouts are less severe
- My skin hasn't felt this soft in a long time
- It doesnt leave my skin beat red like most brushes and exfoliators
- Creams & moisturizers seem to work better
I use it with Kheils Ultra Facial Cleanser at night when taking a shower or bath and will probably switch to Cetaphil after my bottle is done. I've spent quite a lot of money in the past on serums/creams/expensive cleansers. You can take a really basic, gentle cleanser with the Clarisonic and it works wonders.
