Want to Have Great Skin? You Need Clarisonic & Opal!

I had heard my friend Dawn rave, rave, rave about her Clarisonic device. Yes I knew it was a version of a cleanser with a light dermabrasion effect but I was always sort of quizzical about how effective it would be at getting make-up off. How good could it be? Would it really be better than a scrubbie sponge, a baby washcloth or exfoliant?

Thanks to the Clarisonic people.. the answer is a huge YES!! Available in an array of colors and sizes (grey is perfect for guys; lavender, blue, pink, print, and white in both a Classic, a Plus, and a travel size called the MIA, this is the ultimate skin cleansing machine.


I got the Clarisonic Plus Limited Edition which benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation. With two different size heads on my pink print Clarisonic— one regular and one sensitive brush for the face and one for the body.
Here’s a list of the kit contents:
Limited Edition Cordless Clarisonic PLUS
Limited Edition Universal Charging Cradle (100v-240v AC; 50/60 Hz)
Sensitive Brush Head
Body Brush Head
1 oz. trial sizes of Refreshing Gel Cleanser, Gentle Hydro Cleanser and Nourishing Care Cleanser
2 oz. trial size Refining Skin Polish

I have used this device for a while now; stopped using it and started using it again as a test against control– meaning that the stop time allowed me to see a change (or not) in the texture of my skin and then when I started up again, I could check for improvement.

Talk about amazing. I could feel a difference the very first day and after using a Clarisonic, skincare products absorb really quickly!! I can take this into the shower with me and cut my grooming time down because it’s water-safe. While I typically have sensitive skin, the regular brush head was awesome– so I stuck with that. While I had used it all summer, I didn’t take it with me when I was traveling and that’s where I noticed the most difference. I found that the skincare didn’t seem to be as effective and the sun and wind exposure from 2 trips (one to Hawaii, one to Central NY) caused some damage.

I was glad to get home and turn back on the Clarisonic and get back to smooth, cleaner skin that absorbed my treatment products a lot more efficiently.

    I LOVE this product!

It’s one of those critical products that I don’t mind replacing the brushes because it’s just making my skin look better! It became essential to take it with me when I again went to New York (same place as before) recently. It made a huge difference because my skin was suffering from a lot of hydration issues (think dehydation) .

This product comes in a range of sizes, colors and even are suitable for guys– who would love the masculine tool-like efficiency of getting clean faster in the shower because this is a waterproof device.

The other product from Clarisonic that I fell in love with is the Opal. I was late to start this one because I was evaluating the Clarisonic but ONE use with the Opal and I was hooked. Wow! This is one killer product. It does things that I see other devices or products promise but don’t always deliver.

Here’s what’s in the kit:
3 Anti-Aging Sea Serum Dispenser Caps
1 replacement applicator tip
Key Ingredients
Canadian Willowherb
Acetyl Citrull Amido Arginine
Kigelia Africana Extract
Trehalose from desert plants

This device might seem like a flibbertygibbet but it delivers visible results in ONE treatment. Keep using it, and it gets better. Yes, it’s a bit pricy but if you figure that you can eliminate some of those other products you are using, you will find it quite economical and long-lasting. It’s affordable and you will be happy that it makes the need for some botox, microdermabrasion, peels and some other OTC products unnecessary.
Yes, it’s that good.

Yes, I was gifted these products but that doesn’t affect the review. I have been given other products that weren’t this effective and I put these puppies through their paces to make sure they really do live up to their claims– and they do and a whole lot more.

Put this on your holiday wish list. Buy it for yourself when you see friends & family sales on online stores. These two devices can save you serious $$ at a spa and in products over the course of a year — and make you look a LOT better.

Thank you Clarisonic.. because I am looking a lot better these days!
