I was thinking of buying one with the 20% beauty.com friends and family sale. Combining that with the 6% cash back on ebates it's like $30 off maybe a little more.

I think it's a great deal and you'll never get it for any cheaper.

I definitely think it's worth it. I use mine at night and it really gets all the makeup and grime off. I feel like the texture of my skin has greatly improved and I don't have many breakouts now. I also have very oily skin and I feel like the Clarisonic has really helped with that as well. It's expensive, but a good investment. I think you would enjoy it.

I bought the clarisonic mia 2 with the acne brush... I have terrible skin... I mean... nothing would clear it up besides birth control pills and I didn't want to take them anymore. Ever since I started using it with the DDF brightening cleanser I got in my birchbox... my skin has cleared up so much... when I don't use it for while it gets worse. I still have acne but it isn't as bad. It really didn't help the black heads on my nose though.

It really didn't do anything for my skin that a cheap, soft, exfoliating brush couldn't do. I have acne prone skin, and this didn't reduce breakouts. It did nothing for blackheads. My skin looks smoother when I use the Glycolic Acid you get at Rite Aid for $14.99 per bottle that lasts several months. I didn't feel I got a good return for my investment at all. It didn't harm my skin, but it didn't improve it either.

I broke out horribly on my chin, with the Clarisonic. Not just the purge stage, since I've had mine since May. It's a toss up, because I do feel like my facial products absorb faster, but it's not made my pores noticeably smaller or helped with acne all, IMO. Blackheads still present and I started getting acne on my chin. I'm just relieved that I used a butt ton of points to offset the cost and didn't pay full retail out of pocket.

I bought mine on Craig's list for $60.  I don't use it much.  I have normal skin, no acne but it is sensitive.  I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.  I don't think it works any better than a olay brush or a scrub.  It doesn't make creams absorb faster nor doesn't it have any miraculous properties of any kind.  Its just a brush, a very expensive brush with a very expensive replacement head.

So much yes to everything you said. My products don't absorb faster either. And if they did, so what? That's a lot of money to get your face products to absorb faster lol.

I have never had a problem with products 'absorbing'. Most of it is water so its usually just evaporation anyways. I know it's water because I make my own skin products. Most of all products sit on the skin. I don't think I want my skin to absorb stuff quickly, it would be more damaging than beneficial. Skin should have a barrier to protect itself from damage.

I've been wanting to get a clarasonic too. But I saw that most ladies agree that it doesn't clear blackheads, or makes pores smaller. Those are my only skin complaints, I don't get acne and my skin isn't sensitive. I can use any product in the world and it will do just fine, guess I might pass on it.

For anyone looking to maybe buy it beauty.com has it on sale for $95. It's a white mia and it comes with perricone md products. Then you can use the 20% friends and family and the 6% ebates cash back getting it down to about $70. They also do free shipping over $25 so shipping would be free as well.

For that price I might end up buying it. But from what everyone else is saying it's not doing too much for them. My main issue is dry skin and I always forget to put moisturizer on so I was hoping this might get me to start taking care of my skin more.

Exfoliating and using a moisturizer regularly would help and probably clear that up. My Clarisonic Mia doesn't exfoliate, just cleans.

I'm a recent convert to Clarasonic, and it has helped my skin.  I've got super oily, congested skin, and the clarity of my skin has improved since I started using it.  I've gotten fewer blackheads on my nose and my pores look smaller.  I've tried other brush cleansers and the results were not the same for me.

I have used the Clarisonic, the Olay brush, facial loofahs, and Buf-Pufs. I find that the sensitive version of the Buf-Puf is the best for light exfoliation. I have mild adult acne (with a history of severe acne) and I have KP on my face. I also have combo oily and dry skin, and I find that the Buf-Puf does well with exfoliating with any cleanser I like.

I'm not familiar with Buf-Pufs. Are they just pads you use to wash with?

I love love love my Clarisonic! I have the Mia and I use Origins Checks & Balances face wash and my face has definitely never been so smooth and breakout-free since I started using it a little over a year ago.

These are oval shaped pads about the size of a women's hand. There are varying levels of exfoliation. I have had trouble finding them in recent years, but I finally found them at Walgreen's. They can also be purchased on drugstore dot com. They provide gentle exfoliation if you have a light hand or you can actually scrub your face if you need it. I'd say they are $5 to $8 for 1-2 per pack. Many people love them, but I know some girls who feel they are too harsh. I've loved them since I was maybe 12 years old and I used to have severe acne as a kid.

I change up the cleanser I use with them, you can use anything you'd like, but the scrub component of exfoliating cleansers are hard to rinse from the puf.

Of course! I actually have a pink exfoliating face sponge..same thing more or less. I get mine at a little Asian market, so I can't read the writing.
