I love the Clarisonic! My skin is mostly oily/acne prone but in the colder months or when I'm using harsh acne treatments, my skin tends to be flaky. It's so difficult to get foundation/makeup to look decent with flaky skin. I use the Clarisonic in the evenings after I remove my makeup with a wipe. It has helped soften my skin's texture so much! After using the brush, I follow up with a toner and moisturizer. And my skin has never felt softer! Makeup applies so much easier and smoothr. I would suggest, depending on your skin type, working up to using this everyday. Maybe start out once every few days, then every other, then once a day. I say this because I jumped into using it every day and experienced my skin feeling a little dry for the first week or so. But now that my skin is used to it, I use it every day. Actually if I don't use it for a day, I can tell the difference in my skin- doesn't look or feel as smooth/exfoliated. I also struggle with pretty large pores around my nose and continued use of this brush has helped the pores appear slightly smaller or more blurred.
