Which Clarisonic brush head should I use?

My skin is oily

You need the Deep Pore Cleansing brush head. The dual action bristles will flush out clogged pores and help remove any excess oil, dirt and make-up.

My skin is dry

You need the Delicate brush head. It’s gentle and soft, being particularly good for flaky or ‘tight’ areas.

My skin is normal

You need the Normal brush head. You’ll get an invigorating cleanse, while keeping your hydration levels in check.

My skin is combination

You need the Sensitive brush head. The delicate bristles are gentle on dehydrated areas, while they dislodge impurities from greasy patches.

My skin is mature

You need the Cashmere brush head. It gently massages, stimulating circulation and increasing your complexion’s moisture levels.

My skin is sensitive

You need the Sensitive brush head. This brush will respect your skin and give a soothing, gentle clean with all the benefits of a deep cleanse.

What results will the Clarisonic give me?

  • Better absorption of serums and moisturisers
  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
  • Increased hydration and radiance
  • Less break-outs and oiliness
  • Clearer, more even-toned complexion
