As a new mom, one thing I strive to maintain is beautiful skin.  H bought me the Clarisonic Plus for my 29th birthday and I absolutely LOVE it.  I have had it for almost a year now, and I still love it.  The Clarisonic is one beauty splurge every person, especially moms, need to go for.

I have the Clarisonic PLUS (seen below)

The Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($225) features three speeds for the face and a body mode for cleansing areas of the body needing extra care and attention.

Cordless Clarisonic PLUS

  • Universal Charging Cradle (100v-240v AC; 50/60 Hz)
  • Sensitive Brush Head
  • Body Brush Head
  • 1 oz. trial sizes of Refreshing Gel Cleanser, Gentle Hydro Cleanser and Nourishing Care Cleanser
  • 2 oz. trial size Refining Skin Polish


I wanted the Clarisonic Plus because of the body mode.  Once I tried the body mode, I found the brush to be too gentle and actually prefer an exfoliating glove.  This does not mean that I recommend opting for a cheaper Clarisonic Classic ($195) or Mia ($119).  The 3 speeds setting that the Clarisonic Plus have is amazing, and I often use the highest speed, which the MIA and CLASSIC do not have.   If you think that paying $225.00 for a cleansing system is a bit much, the MIA seems like a good buy, though it only has one speed setting.  Overall, I think the PLUS is worth every penny.  My skin is smoother, clearer and brighter.  I chose not to use the skincare that came with my Clarisonic, and you can definitely use any cleanser you like.

I don’t know how I ever lived without my Clarisonic Plus. For a stay at home mother who can’t get a facial on a whim, the Clarisonic Plus is almost just as good.  I will never go without my Clarisonic, that’s for sure.
