After this product was recommended by probably half a dozen people, including two facialists (in response to my complaints about the large pores and rough skin texture on my nose), I decided to cash in a gift card and give it a try. I was pretty skeptical; the "sonic cleansing" claims sounded vraiment gimmicky to me. I've been using morning and night with my regular cleanser, and in just a week's time have seen noticeable improvement in the texture of my skin. On my nose especially, the pores appear smaller, and the skin is smoother, less pebbled. Makeup no longer settles into my pores, which had been a problem even with a good primer. I've tried various exfoliants and glycolic products over the last few months, but the Clarisonic has really yielded more immediate and visible results.
The machine needs to be charged only every few days (so doesn't need to take up precious bathroom counter space) and is waterproof so can be used in the shower. I wouldn't have believed something that seems like the equivalent of an electric toothbrush for the face would actually make a difference, but it does!
