Review: Clarisonic Skincare Brush

I was so excited to get one for Christmas, but I was truly disappointed. It was $195 for the box, which includes the skincare brush, charger, 2 oz. cleanser, sensitive brush head, and normal brush head. I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone (a lot of blackheads) skin, so I was hoping it would help get rid of my blackheads and keep my skin clear. Boy, was I wrong. I used it with my normal cleanser because I heard the Clarisonic cleanser could cause breakouts. I only used it at night on the lowest settings with the sensitive brush head. During the first week, my skin seemed to look more even and clear, but it went downhill from there. I know that purging may happen during the first few weeks, but this was not purging. My skin broke out in places I usually do not break out in, and they did not heal quickly. I used the Clarisonic for about 3-4 weeks, and my skin just kept getting worse. I stopped using it, but it took a few weeks for my skin to look better. I wish I had good results like a lot of other people, but I guess it just didn't agree with my skin. I was researching online, and a few other people had the same results as I did. Some aesthetician said that it should only be used once a week, or else it could overstimulate the skin and cause breakouts. Maybe that is why I broke out?
