This serum is a mixed bag of pros and cons. The pros include the inclusion of a cell-communicating peptide and some good antioxidants and repairing ingredients. The cons are the fact that this is a water-based serum (for the money, you should expect a more substantial base than plain water), it contains a lot of film-forming agent (think hairspray-type of ingredients), and it includes fragrant plant oils, which can be irritating. For the money, there are many other serums whose formulas outpace this one and that don’t subject your skin to fragrant irritants. The irritants risk damaging healthy collagen production and impairing skin’s ability to look and act younger, which isn’t what you want if your objective is anti-aging skin care.
Rounding out your Clarisonic skin care ritual, this translucent, nutrient-rich serum promotes skin renewal and strengthens the skin's natural protective systems.

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!
