Clarisonic, which certainly needs no introduction, is upping the ante when it comes to brightening and cleansing.
Its new Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution Regimen is its first formal partnership with L’Oreal, which snapped the company up a few years ago. This skincare system has a Skin Illuminating Cleanser, Skin Renewing Peel Wash, and Brightening Activator Serum–all with an ARIA Cleansing device and Radiance Brush Head with softer bristles.
The daily morning routine focuses on radiance recovery, with a nickle-sized amount of the Skin Illuminating Cleanser applied directly onto the skin or to a damp Radiance Brush Head. The way to clean skin in the morning is to use the Aria Cleansing device on speed 1, and then obey the beeping sounds (the T-TIMER prompts) until your face is clean and residue-free.
Then, it’s time to apply the Brightening Activator Serum, and massage it onto the face, neck, and décolleté area.
In the evening, it’s about texture renewal, and cleansing switches to the Skin Renewing Peel Wash, and if using the Radiance Brush Head, put it at speed 3. Follow the cleansing with 1-2 pumps of the Brightening Activator Serum and you’ve got yourself a routine. While it is possible to buy the items piecemeal, the entire Sonic Radiance Kit (including the Aria and skincare items) retails for $249.
In clinical trials, 37% of users saw improvement of skin texture immediately, while in two weeks they saw 10 times improvement in hyperpigmentation, which is a huge skincare issue today.
For me, Clarisonic is a perma-fixture in my beauty routine.
