Hi, madridista7!  The Clarisonic can be used twice a day if you want to, but I usually only use mine once per day and wash my face with a gentle cleanser by hand the second time I wash it without using the Clarisonic.  I've heard some people say that they don't even use it every day, but every other day.  I think it just depends on how sensitive your skin is and whether or not it irritates your skin by using it twice a day.  When I use mine twice a day I don't have any problems, it's just that I don't feel like I need to use it twice a day.  Once a day gives my skin all the exfoliation it needs.  So really I think it's just a matter of preference.

I hope this helps! Smiley Happy

I have very sensitive skin and have started using it twice a day (I got it last Friday).  I've had no problem with it drying out my skin at all.  Then again, it could be because I am on prescription acne treatment and my skin is used to it.

Not more than once....I don't really use mine every day since its a bit much and can have the opposite effect. I would use every other day since it really strips all the oils. Its great though!

Anyone who is just starting to use the Clarisonic on their face should use it once every other day or two days and slowly increase it to your skin's tolerance level (which will be different with each person)  Also be sure that you are using the appropriate facial brush for your skin type....sensitive, normal, etc... Remember to let the Clarisonic do all the work and not apply alot of pressure on it.

I use mine this way- and have sensitive skin and have built up to 2x a day with Purity made Simple by Philosophy cleanser- the sample cleanser that came with my facial brush was a little to drying for my skin. At first I believe I was using a little too much pressure- the bristles should lie just against the skin- not be bent as you are using them.
Follow immediately after pat drying skin with soft towel with your fav moisturizer- I use sunscreen every day so this is my first application after drying my skin. The biggest word I have learned to use is GENTLY with every thing to do with the skin- especially facial. I am in my early middle years and am a medical assistant and after understanding that being harsh with your skin only makes it produce more oil to counteract your rough treatment I finally understand the importance of being very easy goes it on my face especially.My skin has NEVER looked better than it does since i got a Clarisonic,Clinique Even Better Clinical dark spot corrector,high number 40 (Lavanila Healthy Sunscreen SPF 40 or Sheiseido 60 SPF sunscreen- both silky- not tacky) , Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser and Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer- (I alternate the 2 moisturizers- Clinique and Perricone MD as I sense my skin needs)- Believe me I have tried it all and I visit a dermatologist and we are on first name basis.
My skin is firm, and as silky as a fine Parisian scarf.

I enjoy using mine twice normally. May also depend on the intensity of the products you are cleansing with / applying after... Over time you will find your rhythm and love your brush!
