Clarisonic Skin Care Brush & other product questions.

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any of y'all have used this product. I got a facial last week (horrible experience, but I won't go there...) and she used this on me. It didn't feel too rough for my sensitive skin and the lady recommended it for my oily/sensitive skin to clear out my pores daily. I almost choked at the price though - it's $195 w/o tax!

 

I saw some knock offs today at Walgreens and almost purchased one but decided to go home and read the reviews. They were not good, but the Clarisonic seems to be receiving steady good reviews. So, I'm thinking about purchasing one. It's a lot of money, but would be worth the investment if it works! I need to do something about my skin (it's been breaking out lately). I drink tons of water, take fish oil & a multi. Granted I've been stressed to the max lately so I think that's adding to my breakouts.

 

I'm also looking for a good rejuvenating serum and moisturizer. I would love to get products like this that I can purchase at my local drugstore. However, I do have access to a Sephora at our mall. I was using Kinerase Clear Skin Light (I think that's what it's called) which worked wonderfully but was $75 for 1.7 oz! smile43.gif When I asked the lady at Sephora what she would recommend she pointed out a lotion that was slightly less $ (about $40 for 1.3-1.4oz, brand is Cosmedicine "Medi-Matte"). It works wonderfully at making my face matte but it feels thick and makeup doesn't seem to work well with it (odd since she said it's also used as a makeup primer...). You can return products to Sephora if you don't like them, right? I think I am going to take that one back if I can... maybe I'll put the $ towards the Clarisonic! wink.gif

I've heard good things about the Clarisonic. It's like a sonicare toothbrush for your face, right? Sorry - no personal experience.

Yeah, it was invented by the same people who introduced Sonicare.

 

I found a 20% off + free shipping coupon when you purchase from SkinCare.com (Ends tomorrow July 8th!) With the coupon it comes out to $156 total. That's the best deal I've found yet - I think I'll get it!

 

Here's a link to the coupon/code : Clarisonic

Sweet - I just ordered the Clarisonic + my old lotion that I like (Kinerase) with upgraded 2 day FedEx shipping for just a little more than I would have paid for just the Clairisonic + tax woot.gif

This has been a little more complicated than I thought. I received a shipment confirmation from SkinStore.com today saying that they had shipped 1 item (the Kinerase lotion). Knowing that I had paid upgraded 2 day FedEx shipping I figured they would be sending both items out together, so I got online with a representative and they said the Clairisonic was sold out and on backorder and that it would take 5-7 days before it would be ready to ship out! Grrrr. Well, I had purchased the pink one since it donates $10 to Breast Cancer Awareness. After a couple times of asking the same question I finally got a reply that they had 6 of the regular white ones in stock, so I asked if I could have that one shipped instead. They said they don't do exchanges so I could cancel my first order and then place a new order for the white one but have to pay for upgraded shipping again on the newly ordered item (having already paid it once to ship the Kinerase)!!! Btw, it did not say on their site that either is sold out. Apparently their server takes 24-48 hours to get things straight. I told them that this was frustrating and why should I pay another $9 simply because their server doesn't update in a timely manner? Finally the guy told me if I called it in over the phone he would waive the shipping fee.

 

All said and done, it got straightened out and I am still getting my Clairisonic for $156 instead of $195 + tax, and it is supposed to arrive on Thursday :)

Still haven't received the promised email confirmation saying that the new white version has been ordered/shipped... will wait until tomorrow to see if that comes since they seem to run a day or so behind... keeping my fingers crossed! I can't wait to try that thing out!!

Hope it works better than that! Guess we'll see...

Or, hopefully we'll see shall I say... I still have not received confirmation that the product has shipped. Under My Account on their website it just says that the order has been "accepted", not shipped. After I get home from class later I guess it'll be round two with these guys over the internet chat help service... smile67.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
