I'll have to update on my previous post.
Despite the high rave, after using Cetaphil with the brush for a month, my skin gets very sensitive. Now I realize a foamy cleanser, whichever brand, is the best to protect skin from unnecessary frictions.


How often are you using the Clarisonic? It is best to start every other day or once a day to gauge how your skin reacts. Also, you aren't pushing hard with the brush when you do it right? This is bad, the brush does all the work, so you just want to hold it and let the Clarisonic do all the work. I really don't think a foaming cleanser will make a difference. Try cutting back and not pushing hard. Keep us updated.

I don't gather it would be a good idea to use say Karin Herzog's Professional cleanser or Dr.H Cleansing Cream with a Clarisonic. Do you think it would be ok to alternate. Say Clarisonic in morning and then Cleansing Cream at night???
Do you think a glycolic cleanser would be good with the Clarisonic? I want to try MD Forte 111.

And one more- do you sensitive skinned ladies like the delicate or sensitive brush more? I'm planning on picking one up most likely this weekend. Eeeeee!!! Rolling Eyes

If you do a search on the clarisonic cleansers you will read from other members that they are VERY irritating. I was surprised to hear this since the Clarisonic is WONDERFUL! You would think they'd make cleansers just as good. In the same thread another memeber recommended PSF Green Tea Cleansing Milk. I purchased this product and am in love...in fact I need to order another bottle soon.

After using Cetaphil with Clarisonic for about a month, I feel this combination is good enough. I actually like the nourishing cleanser from Clarisonic but not the other two. I only use the brush once a day and put a lot of cleanser on my face as well as on the brush. It cleans well and does not make my skin sensitive.

If you do order, ask them to send you some free samples with it. You can request what you want. They used to sell samples so I emailed them about it and they shipped me 3 for free from the list I sent them.

Now that you are using clarisonic, I advise you to use gentle cleansers, since clarisonic is already a deep cleanser.
At least, gentle cleansers is pretty safe. Many medical and effective ingredients may cause your skin to be sensitive.

So no glycolic or salicylic acid at all?? I was so looking forward to buying MD Forte. Well I guess it does the mechanical exfoliation instead of chemical.
One quick question - Do you notice the little pores around your nose decongested? I always get pimples there and it is soo frustrating.
I'm waiting till mid-week to grab mine as I'm waiting for a cheque to come...

I plan to buy the Clarisonic this week after reading all these posts. My skin is the combination type. The T-zone is oily but the cheeks are pretty dry. I think it's a good idea to use the Clarisonic on the T-zone.

Well, for me, I have sensitive dry skin. I used Clarisonic for a while, and it works well on me.

I heard that Cetaphil is really good, but now I just use the Clarisonic sensitive cleanser. And it is good on me. Laughing

I personally have not used Dermanew, but do own the Clarisonic. They are really two different products. Dermanew is a wand and I think the treatment takes 3 minutes twice a day. It is supposed to help generate more collagen through the use of frequencies. The Clarisonic was made to clean your face better then when done by hand. I'd imagine that these two products would compliment each other, but I don't think you can compare them.

Many of my friends bought that, they said it's very useful when they started to use it. But this good feeling won't last for a long time. I prefer to wash my face in traditonal way. Wink

I use my clarisonic 2x's a day with NCN's Rhassoul Bar... the foam the soap makes... makes the brush just glide... nice clean and soft face...

Didn't care for any of the sample cleansers that came with the clarisonic... felt stripping...

I am surprised that their cleansers have a lot of ingredients that are not good for your skin or even close to being natural. You would think the cleansers would be better since the Clarisonic is wonderful.

It's best to avoid sodium lauryl sulfate in your skincare cleanser. And I try to get something that maintains a lower Ph level - more in keeping with natural skin.

A cleanser that has worked the best for me so far is from dianayvonne.com called Rose hips cleanser. Non-drying, works wonderful with Clarisonic and perfectly Ph balanced. Smells good too. Right now I'm using up the odds and ends of everything!

I don't have a clarisonic but many of my friends love it. Most of them suggest using a foamy cleanser to avoid irritating the skin, and cleansers like Cetaphil with the brush would probably make your skin more sensitive.

I would definitely use a mild cleanser. I used to use the Clarisonic and didn't find anything magical about the cleanser that comes with it. Any mild cleanser will do.
