Everything you need to know about Clarisonic in SA

Clarisonic South Africa

Last night after years of waiting, Clarisonic finally launched in South Africa. I’d almost given up hope and stopped reading Clarisonic reviews and posting about my obsession and posting some more. Instead of a lengthy marketing post, here’s exactly what you need to know to get your hands on one.

1. Clarisonic, the revolutionary (and patented) facial cleansing system is finally launching in South Africa. The Clarisonic cleans skin six times better than hands and can be used in conjunction with your regular cleanser. One of their big selling points is – as a result of a more thorough cleansing, products you apply after will penetrate much better into the skin. There are a barrage of other benefits too, softer, smoother skin, a ore even skin tone and smaller pores. The brush apparently also helps reduce fine lines and it’s gentle enough for everyone.

2. Three models will be available, the Aria, The Plus and the Mia 2.

3. The Clarisonic will be exclusive to Stuttafords who are planning a very selective rollout (starting with Sandton City).

4. Units will be priced from R2499 and replacement heads will be R399.

5. They’ll be launching in January (Now mid February) 2015. ( I am a little perplexed about why they would skip the Christmas rush though).

I received an Aria to review, it’s a facial brush only with three speeds and can be charged via usb (YES). I’ll post a first impressions post very soon.

    So excited! I’ve been waiting for Clarasonics for two years! Can’t wait for your updates 😀

    WOW! How pretty! I really hope to get my hands on one of the facial cleansing brushes but the costs are quite steep – think I am going to wait a bit to see what enters the market then decide. I’d want a Clarsonic….but forking out over R2k is a bit too excessive. Clinique’s Sonic equivalent is R1600 – which already is a lot more affordable. Exciting times for the South African’s beauty industry!

      I know, it’s very, very expensive and I didn’t think it was worth it. Last night one of the doctors who actually came up with the Clarisonic idea was there and I think he converted me. They have about 40 patents and 25 engineers working on it which is impressive. It’s very exciting I agree! Just wish they would have more stockists too.

    Anybody tried the Clinique Cleansing Brush?

      Haven’t tried it, but Clarisonic owns quite a few patents. Not sure if what Clinique is offering can do the same thing that Clarisonic can. However, it might do the same thing, in a different way.
