Sonic Cleansing

I’m always looking for a way to deep clean my face because my skin tends to get oily—especially on hot days. Sometimes it feels as though the dirt is still sticking to my skin despite incessantly washing with soap and water. I am determined to cleanse my face until it’s squeaky clean.

The Clarisonic Aria claims to cleanse the skin six times better than manual cleansing. It oscillates at over 300 movements per second and does not rotate. 94% of users report softer skin and 90% report more radiant, glowing skin. The Clarisonic Aria has three different speeds: delicate, universal, and powerful. Even though I have sensitive skin, I used the universal setting because it enhances cleansing by 26% compared to the delicate speed.

The Aria, which is also waterproof, features an adjustable T-timer that’s set to one minute of cleansing time. It beeps and pulses to indicate it’s time to move to another part of your face. After just one use, my skin felt as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
