A worthwhile investment for your skin
I put off purchasing a Clarisonic for several months as the price made me wonder whether it would be worth it. I bought a cheaper oscillating facial brush from a well known high street store but was disappointed with the results - the bristles on the facial brush were scratchy and felt low quality, and my skin, usually not sensitive at all, was left red and easily irritated after a few weeks of once daily use.
I was then given a Clarisonic Plus as a present from my bridesmaids four months before my wedding and was amazed with the difference between this and the cheaper product. The brush head was soft and a two minute cleanse in the evening (I remove make up, particularly eye make up, with a micellar water cleanser and cotton wool pads before use) functions as both a deep cleanse and a facial massage. Within a few days of using the Clarisonic Plus with a non-foaming soap free cleanser (I like Eve Lom Cleanser at the moment but have also used the Ren Rosa Centrifolia cleanser with good results) the sensitivity of my skin had decreased, and my complexion looked more even and less red. The pores on my T-zone are noticeably smaller and less prominent, and the texture of my skin, particularly on the dryer areas (cheeks), is much improved. I've noticed that I need to use far less serum and moisturiser to achieve a soft, hydrated complexion than before - the product just seems to sink in far better after using the Clarisonic Plus. I'm also using less foundation and concealer than I did before, as I have fewer blemishes and the general tone of my skin is more energised and glowing. I would recommend using it in the evening rather than in the morning - once I've cleansed with this in the evening, I need only use a simple cream cleanser and a hot cloth in the morning as my skin feels so clean. I personally don't use it twice a day, but I think the facial brush head is so gentle that you could if you wanted to. The body brush head is also fantastic and is especially good for exfoliating those areas where fake tan tends to collect and stain (elbows, ankles, any other dry patches). I use the body brush head twice a week.
I wish I'd invested in the Clarisonic Plus earlier - the cheaper imitations just don't measure up. I've since bought a white Mia so that I can keep up with my cleansing routine whilst I'm travelling, and am viewing this as an investment in my skin. It's been well worth it so far (and I think of the money I'm saving on foundation, too!)

Best product for ageing tired dehydrated skin
I bought this clarisonic a few years ago,recommended by friends in my local spacenk...teaming it with my eve lom cleanser it revived my skin. I always thought my skin was dry but found out I was using a moisturiser too rich and now I don't always wear one in the day time as my skin glows in the morning without it!! Yippee for clarisonic and eve lom....my skin saviours :-)

Amazing when you find your rhythm
I purchased the clarisonic a couple of years ago. When I first started using it I used it daily and noticed a huge improvement with my skin. After about two weeks I realised I didn't need to use it all over daily, and focus only on my T zone daily. After years of use i use it twice weekly as part of a mini facial. I don't need to use foundation and can get away with a light dusting of powder and am HD/ selfie ready.
