this will be a quick haul entry, and my initial absolute rave of the Clarisonic face and body cleaning brush. I am pretty sure this product needs no introduction. It is rather highly raved in the beauty community, and recently we are able to get it at our own Sephora stores. Previously, you have to purchase it online at US sites, such as Beautychoice.com. This kit retails for S$375, it comes with 3 of the clarisonic cleansers (in sample 30ml sizes) and a body scrub. It also comes with another bigger brush head which you can use for your body as well. The Clarisonic sits in a dock which you use to charge the battery. I think this whole kit is also very travel friendly.
There are countless reviews and tutorials showing the Clarisonic brush in action, and some of my fave links are as follow:

It is a hefty price to pay, yes, but here is my rationale:
Good skin starts with clean skin. If your skin is all clogged, then your makeup won't go on nicely. Clogged pores and skin cause break outs. It is also important to remove all makeup and dirt properly because you apply skincare, so that your skin can absorb that $100 or $200 or whatever skincare you apply. Because if your skin is all blocked, what's the point of splurging on the best face cream, because your skin cannot absorb it properly?
This costs S$375, and can last for about 3 years. A $300 face cream can probably last you only 6 months. So, isn't this a great investment?
The brush head will wear out like toothbrushes, so they need replacing every 3 - 4 months. Each costs S$42.
There are different brush heads for different skin types --- normal, delicate and sensitive. The default one that comes with the kit is for sensitive skin which basically suits all skin types.
The handle is all curved nicely to fit your hand. And it feels very solid, and sturdy.
I used it a few times since I bought it yesterday (3 times), and the first time I used it last night, I am blown away by how much cleaner my skin felt. It was as if a blanket of dirt or whatever has been covering my skin all this time. Your skin literally feels lighter, breatheable, and just GOOD and CLEAN. I tried on the bro and sister too, and they are also very impressed. The rotation and vibration of the brush can be adjusted to suit your liking, and you can buy a few brush heads if you intend to share with other members of your family. Good, right?
I will update in more detail about how this performs after few more weeks. :)
And so, I proclaim my little obsession and love for this Clarisonic brush!
Thanks for reading!
