Which type of clarisonic brush is best for me and my skin type?

Hello! I am looking into purchasing a Clarisonic facial brush, but I am unsure of which one would be best for me and my skin type. I have moderate to severe acne, un-even skin tone, blackheads and VERY VERY oily skin. I have been on the Pill for about 2 years now to try to control my acne with little to no improvement. (I'm looking into switching Pills to see if that will help.) I am not lazy about taking care of my skin in the least, as I take care to wash my morning and night, in addition to exfoliating and moisturizing as needed to take off makeup and to hydrate my skin. My main goals would be to clear up my skin and improve its overall quality. Also, the cost is another thing to consider, as I am 16 and do not have a job as of yet. I would love to hear any suggestions from people, but it would be best if they had a similar skin type to mine. I just want to know if a Clarisonic brush is something that could potentially help me, and if so, which brush(es) would be best for me and my skin type. Thanks a bunch! Smiley Happy

Hello wakeboarderr,


I would suggest that you try the basic Clarisonic Mia which is slightly cheaper and (unless you want to use the brush for acne on the body) I don't see TOO much of a need for the plus or the regular. The Mia comes with the normal brush head which has been working great for my own combo/oily t zone and sometimes acne prone skin.


If your skin is super acne prone and oily, try the new  Clarisonic Mia 2 which has a special acne brush head and the acne daily clarifying cleanser. Both of these are specially for acne prone skin to help with treating and preventing acne and keeping the skin smooth and clear. Smiley Happy

Get the basic Mia and once your skin gets used to it get the replacement brush head for acne prone skin(its the green and white one). I use the Clean Start by Dermalogica line along with my Mia and it helps a lot. Also Biore or Boscia pore strips for blackheads are great. Hope this helps!

I have the same problem with my skin. I would suggest the Clarisonic Mia. The Clarisonic face cleanser made my face break out majorly though. I would suggest using it with Tea Tree Oil facewash (Body Shop.)
