First Impressions - Clarisonic Plus Face & Body Complete Sonic Cleansing System

This is my favourite present from my mum for my birthday earlier this month - the Clarisonic Plus Face & Body Complete Sonic Cleansing System in Floral Pink. I have been lusting after a Clarisonic in sooo long and I am really happy with it so far. It included:

  • 1 x cordless Clarisonic PLUS (in the cutest floral pink design - LOVE)
  • 1 x universal charging cradle
  • 1 x sensitive brush head (white)
  • 1 x replacement head for normal skin (grey)
  • 1 x replacement head for delicate skin (blue)
  • 1 x body brush head
  • 1 x Refreshing Gel Cleanser (30ml) - gentle foaming cleanser to brighten and exfoliate oily and congested skin
  • 1 x Nourishing Care Cleanser (30ml) - gentle, non-foaming cleanser soothes and comforts
  • 1 x Gentle Hydro Cleanser (30ml)
  • 1 x Gentle Hydro Cleanser (177ml) - gentle, non-foaming cleanser soothes and comforts
  • 1 x Refining Skin Polish (60ml)
  • 1 x Refining Skin Polish (177ml) - formulated for use on the body with the body brush head

  • My mum bought it from QVC and you can see more info here

     I have used it every day for about 3 weeks, every morning and night but I have been slacking recently at night time, so I need to keep that up so I can get the full effect. At the moment I can't see a massive difference in the appearance of my skin, but I'm not expecting a difference just yet, because my skin is scarred by acne there is a slow skin cell turnover. But I have noticed a difference in the texture in my skin already, it feels so much smoother and softer, which means I get a much nicer finish with my foundation. Moisturisers also soak in much better now too and don't feel like they sit on my skin like before. The amount of oiliness has reduced somewhat too but I still get very oily after a few hours but I think it also may be due to the weather being warm, I always have oilier skin in the spring/summer months. Any recommendations you have for skincare products to control crazy oily skin in warm weather would be much appreciated!

     I have been using the refreshing gel cleanser (which smells so good) with the normal brush head (grey), I used the sensitve (white) brush head for the first few days and then went on to the normal because I wanted a more exfoliation. A full review of this will be coming in a couple of months, I really want to give it a chance to work and from what I've heard, if you have problem/scarred skin like I do, then allow up to 3 months to see the full effect. If anybody else has the Clarisonic Plus tell me about your experiences about it or any cleanser/clarisonic combos for oily skin, I would love to know!

    1. I have been using my Clarisonic Mia 2 for a few months. It came with a sensitive brush head which I have been using. My skin improved within the first 2 weeks after use. But then nothing else happening for a while. Then I switched to a deep pore cleansing brush head. That's when I notice a big difference and my skin cleared up and felt much softer. If you have oily skin and large pores, highly recommend you get the deep pore brush head.

      1. I was disappointed that the set didn't come with the deep pore brush head, iv'e heard so much about it! My skin has kinda stayed the same now you mention it since the initial couple of weeks. I will definitely purchase next payday now, I really want to try it now :)
