I purchased my Clarisonic at beautychoice.com since at that time, i had a discount code and it came with additional items.
The one i got is the Clarisonic Plus, the original size one that has 3 speeds to choose from. I didn't get the Clarisonic Mia only because they ran out of the pink one i wanted lol.
I still have the original box it came in, and here's what it looks like.
Here's what the box said:
It claims the Clarisonic removes 6 times more the makeup then plainly using your hands with face wash to cleanse your face.
Just in case it's difficult to see the writing on the picture, here are the benefits:
- Clears pores and reduces the appearance of pore size
- Cleanses so effectively that skin care products absorbs better
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps reduce oily areas, dry patches and blemishes
- Remarkably gentle for cleansing all skin types, even with sensitive conditions such as rosacea and acne
So the package i got came with two brush heads. A sensitive brush head for your face and a brush head for your body. It's very easy to take on and off and is very sturdy, you don't have to worry about it flying off when in use.

|Sensitive brush head for face.|
The clarisonic Plus comes with 3 different speeds, one very mild and gentle one, next one is faster and stronger but still feels gentle and the third speed is very fast and a lot of pressure.
The first speed does not do justice for me, so i keep my clarisonic at the second speed. I find that the third speed is too harsh on my skin and it kind of hurts when you use it too long, so i never really change the speed at all.
Theres only two buttons which makes life so much easier. Once you turn it on, it goes for one minute. And it beeps after 15 seconds -->30 seconds --> 15 seconds. And it beeps and the brush rotates to let you know when to move on to a different part of your face. I usually do two runs, so 2 minutes for my face each day since i feel that one minute isn't enough pampering for my face.
The box also came with a few small samples of face wash and a mini scrub for your body when using the body brush head. I don't use these though, i prefer to use my own.
So how do i feel about the Clarisonic? I LOVE it! I used to use it twice a day, once in the morning, and once at night, but now i only use it at night since thats when i have to get my makeup off anyways. Also because my face has gotten a bit sensitive and can be quite dry at some times.
Compared to how i used to wash my face (with my hands and face wash), the Clarisonic defiantly makes my face feel CLEANER. It actually looks cleaner too, after rinsing off and patting dry, my face feels fresh and glowy. Not glowy like an oily face but glowy in a way that it's clean, kind of like you just polished your face and it starts shining.
The benefits states that it cleans your face so well that moisturizers can sink ion better, which i feel is true in a sense. The first month of using this i wake up to a more hydrated face than a dry one which i'm used to waking up to, even though i put loads of night creams.
About it making your pores smaller, that didn't work for me. I've been using this thing for so long, and the large pores on my nose area and my cheeks still haven't gotten smaller. maybe i just have stubborn pores.
You do have to change the brush head every once in a while, and you can easily get them from Sephora. I usually stick with the sensitive brush head or the delicate brush head, since they are goth so gentle and soft.
I would recommend the Clarisonic to everyone and it's so easy to take to travel too. I went on a one week trip before and i took the clarisonic with me without taking the charger. it lasted the full week (and probably longer) without dying down.
Love it <3
