Raved about by beauty editors and celebrities alike, this miracle cleaning brush has now gone Pro!


To use, I wet both my skin and the brush head with water and then applied the Clarisonic cleanser to my face. As it was my first time, I used the sensitive brush and a low speed. The brush felt very gentle on my skin and I followed the timer to clean the different parts of my face. My skin felt smoother and my overall tone brighter. The next day, my face felt less oily and I was able to use less products as my skin’s absorption rate seemed to have improved.

The Clarisonic Pro Cleansing System retails for $350 at Calvin Chan Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. The other models are available at Sephora from $170 to $320.

Clarisonic – the wonder tool that has revolutionised skin cleansing and boasts heavy star clout with celebrity fans like Gisele Bundchen, Gwyneth Palthrow, Hilary Swank, Jessica Alba and Kate Moss, is setting the world abuzz again with the launch of its latest model, the Clarisonic Pro.

The Clarisonic Pro model is to be used by spas, dermatologists, and aestheticians for deep cleaning the skin thoroughly but gently. According to Clarisonic, the Pro has been found to remove up to six times more makeup than manual cleansing. Because the Pro makes use of a gentle, massaging action, it is safe to be used for different skin conditions, such as acne, dermatitis, and rosacea.

At their media launch last month, Dr Calvin Chan was on hand to share his experience with it. One of the benefits of this brush is that it can be used before any other kind of treatment since it helps the skin to absorb products and treatments better. Some of the other benefits of using the Clarisonic Pro regularly include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, shrinking of pore size, and improving oily areas, dry patches of skin and blemishes.

What the Clarisonic Pro Skin Cleansing System Includes:
  •    4 speeds, including low, normal, high, and professional(intended for the face)2 modes: Face and Body
