This cleanser contains gentle cleansing agents that remove makeup without drying skin, and Clarisonic includes a bunch of extras, too, such as collagen, elastin, and numerous antioxidants. Those ingredients look good on the label, but offer little benefit to skin when in a cleanser because the cleanser is rinsed from skin. Also, keep in mind that collagen and elastin in skin-care products cannot fuse with or somehow shore up collagen and elastin in skin.

Where this cleanser really goes astray is by including several fragrant oils. Lemon, lime, bergamot, and orange all cause irritation and are a problem for use around the eyes. Using this cleanser with the Clarisonic brush means these irritants are pushed deeper into your pores, where their problematic effects are magnified. Any gentle, water soluble (and, ideally, fragrance-free) cleanser can be used with the Clarisonic brush, so this overpriced entry can be ignored.

Non-foaming cleanser that removes impurities while soothing and comforting. Enriched with anti-aging antioxidants.

The Classic Clarisonic system is one of the most expensive ways to clean your face on a daily basis we've ever seen. It is a battery-powered, rotating brush with adjustable power levels for different skin types, along with two different brush heads for normal or sensitive skin. It also comes with 1- ounce-each tubes of Clarisonic's three cleansers (for $195 you'd think they could at least give you more than a three-week supply of cleanser). Does the expense mean you'll get significantly cleaner skin? Is Oprah Winfrey on to something by naming this device one of her favorite things? Read our review of the Clarisonic system to find out!
