Hi Laura520,


I definitely agree with Jill, look into changing your cleanser to something that is gentle and that will not add extra exfoliation to your skin. When using the Clarisonic, you are already giving your skin exfoliation. So if you then add a cleanser that also is an exfoliator then your skin is most definitely going to react. Either it's going to be super dry, sensitive or break out. I myself use the Clarisonic and absolutely love it. Here are some cleansers that work really well with the clarisonic. Hope this helpsSmiley Happy

It sounds like it could be the cleanser you are using.  I did look up the ingredients and it does have fragrance in there which can sometimes cause reaction.  It also contains salicylic which goes deep in your pores and maybe it is too strong with the Clarisonic.  Remember, when using the Clarisonic, every product works more effective since you are getting the deeper clean.


I would go back to a cleanser without any harsh ingredients and see if that helps.  You also may want to clean your brush head really good with an antibacterial soap to ensure it is not the brush head.  Last, you can try to switch your brush head out with a new one (even though it is usually every 3 months...)


Have you changed any other products that you are using?


Definitely start with changing your cleanser and see if that helps.
