I LOVE my Clarisonic. I really, really wish I'd bought one years ago - it would have saved me a fortune in skincare. I have to admit that I'm a pushover for new skincare products and I've always liked trying out new stuff anyway. I've been using a Clarisonic brush for three months now and it has really made a difference- thorough cleansing takes only a minute and anything I apply afterwards is absorbed straight away. I find I don't have to use nearly as much as usual. I hesitated about buying this because of the price but since I use it twice everyday (and I tend to get bored with complex cleaning rituals) it has turned out to be relatively cheap because I can use inexpensive cleansers with it. It is gentle enough for me to use on my thin (ageing) skin and it has reduced some lines and faded some pigmentation patches. My skin seems to be in much better condition, even after the summer. Five years ago I had to have quite radical face and neck surgery which affected the nerve supply, and therefore blood supply, to some parts of my face. Although the scars have faded I am always aware that I've needed to keep the circulation to my face stimulated. The Clarisonic has helped with this greatly, an unexpected bonus. It is probably the single best thing I've purchased over a lifetime of extravagance!
