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.

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.

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.

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

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

1. I think I have the Mia 1? It's basic and has just one speed, and I have the sensitive brush heads.

2. I use it almost every evening

3. I only use cleansers with it -- these past few months I've been using the Murad Clarifying cleanser. I love the cool, tingly feeling you get with it!

4. My skin is mostly combination and acne-prone

1. I've had my Original Plus for over 3 years & Original Mia in light pink for travel for over 2 years. I like them both, but prefer the speeds on the plus. The body attatchment is awesome & use that once a week. I've tried the normal brush heads, delicate (returned those), sensitve & am now debating between deep pore & acne. 

2. 3-4 x a week; at night normally when I had makeup on

3. ARCONA Raspberry Clarifying Bar (smells delicious or OH On the Go Cleanser. When I first got it I did use it with an exfoliator, but stopped & cleaned it out as soon as I learned it could break it. I'm thinking of trying it out with AmorePacifc Treatment Enzyme Peel, I heard the two work well together since the exfoliator is chemical and goes from powder to foam with no grains. I do a mask once a week depending on my skins needs; OH Blue/Black Berry Mask if I'm dry, Glamglow if I'm congested, or something with grains if I have dry patches & acne. 

4. Combo, not greasy just breakouts & dry spots when I don't moisturize enough. 

Answered

1. Clarisonic Plus

2. Every few days

3. I use only water as I cleanse prior to using my Clarisonic.  I use it for manual exfoliation, post-makeup removal, and the fact that I don't use it for makeup removal allows me to go much further without having to change out brush heads.

4. Oily in the summer, combination in the winter.

I have the Clarisonic Plus.

 

When I first got it a little over a year ago, I used it every day or every other day.  Now that I am regularly using face masks, and exfoliants, I have lowered the use to 2-3 times a week.  I tweak that number anytime I feel it needs it.  Only a few times ever have I used it for both the morning and evening face wash.  I also use the body head every time I shave.

 

I use cleanser with the face brush and an exfoliator with the body brush.  When I use an exfoliant on my face, I like to work it in gently with my hands.

 

I have sensitive combination skin.  My dry patches are very dry, but my oily patches are very oily.  The dry side takes over in most battles though.

  1. I have Clarisonic Aria. Had the Mia1 but my brother really liked it and wanted it especially for breaking out and blackhead purposes. So I just gave mine to my brother and bought myself a new one. 
    I use either the delicate or sensitive and the Luxe brush for the mornings. 
  2. I use it at least once daily. but ever since I purchased the Luxe brush, I use it in the morning too sometimes 
  3. everything I've used so far works fine with the device. I am currently using the Bobbi Brown lathering tube. Origins checks and balances worked great, Dr. Bronner's soap works great for blackheads (I only use it around the nose),Clarins gentle cleanser worked great, etc.
    - I exfoliate separately once a week or once every 2 weeks with Josie maran powder wash 
  4. I have combination sensitive skin prone to break outs.

1.  I've had my Plus for almost 3 years and I love it! I currently use the sensitive or delicate brush head.  I tried the deep pore cleansing brush head and my face broke out for months and never healed until I stopped using it.

2.  I use my Clarisonic at night because I use other products that exfoliate my skin (ex. retinols, glycolics) and I don't want to over exfoliate.  I did use it 2xs a day for over a year with no problems but my products weren't as active either. 

3.  Right now, I'm using Philosophy's Purity (not the gel) and it works well.  I've used Dr. Perricone, Murad, Origin's, Boscia, Ole Henriksen and who knows what eles with zero problems.  You can use an exfoliator with it but it SHOULD NOT contain jojoba beads or anything similar.  (The Plus comes with a body scrub to use with the body brush...That's okay.) Personally, I wouldn't use a facial exfoliant with it at all.  I also didn't like using oil based cleansers with it but that's my personal preference. 

4. When I started I had dry skin but now I am a true combination skin.  My T-Zone is easily clogged while my cheeks stay dry,  I haven't had any problems with milia and etc with my current routine so I'm very happy.  I LOVE my Clarisonic and recommend them to my clients all of the time.  I even bought one for my Mom.  Smiley Happy

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.
