Great question!

 

First, I will say that I have been using my Clarisonic for nearly a year (next month).

 

1. I have the original 1-speed Mia. I was worried about the lack of speeds because my skin is sensitive, but I have not had any issues. I use the "Sensitive" brush heads.

2. I use it twice a day. However, while some experts swear it is gentle enough for twice daily usage, others say its use should be limited to 2-3 times per week. My skin does not seem to be suffering any negative effects from using it twice a day -- no dryness, redness, irritation, etc.

3. I use a gentle glycolic acid-based cleanser with it.

4. Clear / somewhat sensitive / combination (sometimes dry, sometimes oily...no clue!).

Hi Sdavis23.  I love my Clarisonic! :heart:

1. I have the Clarisonic Plus

2. Once a day

3. You don't want to use a scrub with it on the face.  The cleansers I use with it are Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil and Korres Milk Proteins 3 In 1 Cleansing, Toning and Eye Make-Up Removing Emulsion

4. Dry

Answered

I have a Clarisonic Mia, with the deep cleaning brush heads.

I use it once per day, at night.

I currently use a PCA 5% BPO cleanser with it.

I have acne skin, I'm not sure what type. I used to think it was oily, but then I started moisturizing more and now it's not.

Answered

What an excellent topic!

 

1.  I have the Clarisonic Mia (1 speed) with the deep-pore cleansing brush

2. I use it once a day at night to cleanse my face before going to bed

3. I typically used Clinique facial gel for oily skin and recently switched to the Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser.  I don't use a scrub with my brush. 

4. My skin type is oily and I'm prone to breakouts, but during the winter I get dry patches


Answered

I use the Mia one speed with deep pore cleansing brush; glycolic cleasning bar from Perricone, twice a day.  My skin is mature, tends to be oily, used to be blackhead prone.

Answered

1. I have the Mia 2

2. I use it once a day - at night. I use the delicate brush heads becuase even the sensitive ones were irritating my skin when used daily. No issues with the delicate brushes in almost a year's worth of use.

3. I use the Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser with it. It foams up really well.

4. I have oily/acne prone skin

Answered

1. Which Clarisionc do you have? Clarisonic Mia

2. How often do you use it? Twice a day.  Once in the morning to clean my face and neck, and once at night, to help to remove makeup and keep my skin clean.

3. What products work best for you? Cleanser? Exfoliator? I am using Boscia's Cleansing Makeup-Breakup Oil.  I first massage it into my skin whenever it is dry.  Then, I wet my clarisonic brush head and use it to help with the cleaning process.

4. What is your skin type? Dry-combo

Answered

1. Clarisonice Mia2

 

2. Only on days I wear makeup. On average 3 or 4 days a week.

 

3. Korres Milk Foaming Cream Cleanser...it's awesome! You only need a dab and it foams up amazingly!!

 

4. Normal to Dry.

Answered

Answered

Fun post! Here are my answers:

 

1. Clarisonic Mia

2. I use it 2-3x a week.

3. I like exfoliators best and peels, (never use scrubby beads with a Clarisonic!) I currently use the Origins Checks n Balances with my Clarisonic and the Kate Somerville Exfolikate as a weekly treatment.

 

4. I have combination skin, leaning more towards dry lately.

1. I have the Mia 2.

2. I use it daily, sometimes twice daily.  I like detaching the outer brush rim and cleaning the crevices of my nose with it.  Gross and a sure way to get cleanser up my nostrils but very effective!

3. My Mia is pretty much the only manual exfoliation I'll use.  I use the ARCONA pads to exfoliate when needed.  I like Origins Checks and Balances for us with my Clarisonic.

4. Combo, with dry patches during the winter and oil pits in the summer.

Thanks for posting this!! So nice to read everyone's answers.

 

1. I have the Clarisonic Mia and I use it with the sensitive brush head.

2. At the most I use it once a day (at night) but I will skip some days if I feel like I don't need it or if I am going to use an exfoliating scrub/mask instead.

3. I like to use it with a gentle, non-foaming cleanser. My faves right now are Philosophy's Purity Made Simple and Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser.

4. I would say I have pretty normal skin. When I take care of it, it's not overly dry or oily. In the winter it can get dehydrated and in the summer it can get oily. But overall it's fairly normal now that I've grown out of my acne teen years and into my 20s.

1. Mia and a Mia 2 (just upgraded to that one)

2. Once or twice a day. Usually after I get off a 12hr shift at the hospital (RN working 7p-7a)  I grab a Burt's Bees makeup wipe and brush teeth and fall into bed.

3. Oil of Olay Total Effects blemish control cleanser on bare skin in the "morning" and Origins checks and balances to take off makeup on days I am off. Love it to get clay masks off once they are dried.

4. What is my skin type? That is a good question lately. My skin has been very hormonal lately, more acne prone and dry than normal, starting to feel less dry now that it is heating up in Pa.

I have the Mia 2, and use the lower speed and a sensitive head. I generally only use it every other day or so. I like to use a really gentle cleanser as I find the clarisonic does a pretty effective job of cleaning. Specifically, I use the Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk. I have combination skin and a lot fo people mentioned that they had a period of breaking out after starting to use their clarisonic, but I have never experienced that.

1. Clarisonic Mia.

2. Once a day. I use it twice (i.e., press the button again when it stops) so I get a full 2 minute cleanse.

3. Cleanser: Philosophy Purity. Exfoliator: I'm an exfoliator junkie. I use abrasive and non abrasive exfoliators, but not too often because I have the deep pore head for my Clarisonic so it's very ... thorough.

4. 'Combination' (whatever that means). My skin can be very dry, but I develop an oily t-zone during the day. I have excess sebum production and have to constantly manage small whiteheads.

1. I have the CLARISONIC Mia2 (http://seph.me/1c8O3Sk). However, I'm trying out the CLARISONIC Aria (http://seph.me/1GtrMva) -- which is conveniently on sale -- to see if I want to switch.

2. I use it every morning and night. 

3. The Clarisonic actually does a fair amount of exfoliating, whether the company says it does or not. So, I usually shy away from exfoliators. I use BOSCIA Detoxifying Black Cleanser (http://seph.me/1EneWZk). I also have a routine where for one of the 14 washes/week, I replace the CLARISONIC Replacement Brush Head in Normal (http://seph.me/1Ls97Qx) with the CLARISONIC Replacement Brush Head in Deep Pore (http://seph.me/1LjESdN). 

4. My skin is fairly normal, but prone to breakouts on my chin and sometimes on my cheeks. I just washed my entire face - lips, eyebrows, under-chin area included. And felt like this picture might be relevant: http://bit.ly/1Ajf1Cu.

  1. Clarisonic Mia 1 - I have had it for 3.5 years. I switch between the deep pore and acne brush heads. 
  2. Once a day, in the morning.
  3. I use it with a foaming cleanser, right now it is PTR Anti-aging Cleansing Gel. I like to put some cleanser on the brush head, lather the brush head with my hand while the clarisonic is off, then add a little more cleanser on it and use it on my face. 
  4. Combination-oily; very oily tzone, normal cheeks, dryness around mouth/jaw/chin/neck, and hormonal acne around chin/jaw.

Mia 2, deep cleansing brush.

 

I use it every time I remove makeup, and lately, every other time I wash my face. (I'm having some extreme flakiness and the Clairsonic seems to help!)

 

I have a heck of a time finding cleansers that don't make me feel dry. I gave up and started just using my non-drying body cleanser - Dove soap! /:

 

Skin type is combination. Dry, dry, dry with an oily t-zone.

I have the original one speed mia (it's PINK!)

 

It varies how often I use it, if I'm wearing makeup on a more regular basis then I use it to take my makeup off.  If I'm not wearing makeup maybe 3x per week

 

I used Purity

 

I have maturing (entering menopause) oily skin.  I'm not prone to breakouts thankfully
