Having the right cleanser to use with your Clarisonic makes all the difference and can totally change your experience with it. I’ve been using my Clarisonic for nearly a year now. In this time I’ve tested many different cleansers to find what works and what doesn’t!
Finding your best Clarisonic cleanser isn’t easy. So here is a list of my 7 top Clarisoninc friendly cleansers.
Just remember Clarisonic cleanses your skin 6 times better than your hands making the products you use more potent. Suddenly you’re able to use product, which you’d never choose if you were to wash your face just with your hands. If your experiencing skin sensitivity or dryness start with changing your cleanser to a milder one.
Best Clarisoninc cleanser: My top 7!
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter for dry and sensitive skin. I switched to this at the very start of my affair with Clarisonic. I highly recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin, dry to combination skin type. Used with your Clarisonic it becomes a very powerful yet gentle cleanser. It keeps your skin hydrated whilst delivering a perfect cleanse. I went through 2 or 3 tubes of it and tried others only in the name of research :) It’s £19 and you can pick one up here.
Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser. It smells refreshing and I love the delicate feel of foam on my skin. It’s fantastic both with and without your device. I think it’s gentle enough to work for most skin types plus it has a very natural, fresh smell of plants. It costs £15 for a full size (150ml) .FeelUnique has amazing offer on at them moment where you can and get two of those for £22 and a free gift – you’ll find it here.
DHC Face Wash Powder. I’m new to this Japanese brand. This powder wash will give you super clean skin but you won’t feel dry at all. Just make sure to mix it with water in your hands and then apply it to your face creating a lather. Then you can wash your face using Clarisonic. My skin is normal at the moment and this cleanser is wonderful however it also has a gentle exfoliating agent so might be a bit much to use it with Clarisonic if you’re a dry skin type. I loved it though and even more it’s price, only £9.50. You can buy DHC at dhsuk.co.uk. Selected DHC products are also available at amazon.co.uk, feelunique.com and escentual.com, and leading stores including Selfridges, Bliss Pharmacy, BeautyMART, Fenwick and Urban Outfitters locations.
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Cleanser is divine for dry and normal skin. Your skin will literally feel moisturised after washing. Its texture is creamy so it won’t produce much lather, I particularly liked using it in the morning with my cashmere Clarisonic brush head. This cleanser costs £25. Here you can pick one up online.
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Mooring Foaming Cleasning Wash. If you have oily skin look this way! This wash is stronger than any of the previously mentioned but still won’t strip your skin from natural oils and protection. It’s perfect for oily-combination to oily skin type. You’d love using it both on its own and with your device. I find Emma’s cleansing products quite heavily scented, so be aware if you’re sensitive to fragrance in your skincare. A bit more price with this cleanser as it costs £34 for £150ml. You’ll find it here.
REN Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel. Another rose cleanser which I enjoyed using although I only had a sample size of this product. I think this one sits in the middle and would suit best a normal skin type. Your skin will feel throughly cleaned and soothed. It’s £14 for 150ml and you can pick one up here.
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild designed for dry to combination skin. This wash combined with Clarisonic cleansing power becomes more of a moderate cleanser. I never was very fond of Clinique cleansers but with Clarisonic I do like this gel on my normal skin type! It foams up a lot so if you need lather to feel your product works, look this way! Clique products don’t have any fragrance in them so it also might be a great option for you if your fragranced skincare gives your skin sensitivity. Cliniquee Liquid Facial Soap is £16 for a 200ml and you can find it here.
What if your favourite cleansing method is with a hot cloth or balm to oil cleanser?
Can you still use Clarisonic?
Great question! There’s no simple yes or no answer. As long as your cleanser can be washed off with water you still can use your device. So make sure that your oil cleanser turns into milky water when you add water to it. Just bare in mind that we have to replace the Clarisonic brush heads regularly as limescale in water and oils from the product can build up around the bristles preventing them from being as flexible. This means your cleanse won’t be so effective. When you’re using oil based cleansers you may need to replace your brush more often. It’s something you will have to figure out by yourself I’m afraid but it might help to watch this guide about Clarisonic and how it works.
