You can see immediate results from all the surface acne, but you’ll typically break out again at three weeks from all the deep skin acne being pulled to the surface.  At two months I stopped breaking out at all and I only have one zit every couple months now.

Ulta definitely sells it – I saw it there this weekend and contemplated buying one.

I saw results immediately. My skin (which is problematic) is much smoother now. I agree, it is expensive- but I got mine on QVC, and they have that Easy Pay option, so if you pay three installments of $65, it doesn’t seem as bad (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself). 🙂

I LOVE my clarisonic! I have oily skin and I use it with a gel cleanser. Fiance has super sensitive skin and he uses it too with a gentle cleanser.  It is perfect!

I agree that anyone who is breaking out from it may be using the wrong cleanser for their skin type, or perhaps they need a different toner or moisturizer. Most definitely worth the money.

I had started the thread about Clarisonic and breakouts – good to know that that should go away with time! I might give it another try after the wedding 🙂

I just bought one about 5 minutes ago.

I’d been toying with the idea and doing the research for about 2 days and then I saw this thread, went to QVC, read some more, and decided I had to have one.

I have acne–hormonal acne–and the antibiotic I just started has been known to cause children to have grey or yellow teeth (eww!) and I just don’t feel right about doing that to my future children.  So, here’s hoping the Clarisonic clears up my bumpy skin and I can quit the harmful medications!!

I love mine too! Altough I’ve neglected to charge it the last week or so (I’m going to do that right now!) and I’m starting to break out, so for me it’s worth it. I use it with my skin care treatment and it works great

@ Minutiae: I used Buf Pufs for awhile before I got my clarisonic but they were way to abrasive on my face. The clarisonic is much more gentle.

The other thing that’s good about getting it through QVC is you can try it for 30 days and if you hate it, you can send it back and get your money back.

i have the mia.  love it.  i thought about buying the bigger one with the body attachment but ended buying the mini.  my skin looks great.  i only use it at night though.  with whatever cleanser was on sale at target.  im thinking about buying purity from philosophy though… i love the spots on qvc.

If you purchase from Sephora or Ulta you can return within 30 days as well for a FULL refund.  The only sucky thing is, like I said, you should break out at week 3 from all the subsurface acne and oils that have come up…and of course if your current cleanser works, just use that one and not the cleansers that come with the clarisonic.  (Those are actually only marketed with it to show that you can use foaming cleansers, drying cleansers, or milky cleansers with the Clarisonic.  They don’t actively market the cleansers, they want you to use your own…)

you can return to QVC longer than 30 days (actually up to 1 year) as long as your don’t abuse your return rights over time. They also have a very lenient return policy and take everything back.

I just researched it and I see that the Mia only has the “normal” speed.  I have pretty sensitive skin.  Do you think the regular speed would be fine or should I get one with a low speed?

@sarahsd: I have sensitive skin and a mia and I have no problems. If you apply too much pressure the clarisonic can sense that and stutters. They also make a brush made for sensitive skin which you may be interested in and can be used with the mia.
