Review: Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser – a cleanser designed for the Clarisonic

This is a review of the Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser. I received a trial size of this as part of a special set when I bought my Clarisonic. I thought this would be an interesting review to write since I’ve never seen a review of this product.

The cleanser is the blue tube on the right.

What it does:
Specially formulated for sonic cleansing, this pH-balanced, foaming gel cleanser gently balances and clarifies to relieve and protect oily, congested skin. Contains natural active ingredients and is paraben-free. 
Contains Natural Active Ingredients: Willowbark—a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, Bearberry—promotes bright, even skin tone, Japanese Green Tea—soothes and protects skin
(from clarisonic.com)

Price: $25 for 6 oz

Scent: This product has a very generic cleanser scent, similar to the liquid soap you can find in public restrooms. I don’t dislike the scent, but I don’t think it’s a great scent.

Pros:

  • Cleans well

Cons:

  • This was a very generic cleanser.
  • I did not see any difference between using this cleanser and any other cleanser with my Clarisonic

Would I repurchase? No. While this isn’t a bad cleanser, it really isn’t worth the $25.  I’m glad I got this trial size for free!

Like I said, this is really just a generic cleanser. Even if it were $10, I wouldn’t spend money on this product since there are so many better cleansers on the market.

Hope this helped!

    I agree! I think the Clarisonic cleansers are…average!

  2. it is a shame this didn’t enhance any of clarisonic performance.
    i felt exactly same when i tried the special cleanser for beautyblender. there was nothing special about it and my regular foam cleanser actually cleansed better. ;(

    I didn’t even bother to use my Clarisonic Cleansers either, I think I gave them away to my friend’s daughter! What do you use to with your Clarisonic? 

  4. Ohh I agree, very generic, I guess that’s why it’s hard to find reviews on it?  I didn’t purchase after finishing the trial size one that came with my Mia.  I found that I’m pretty happy using my Mia with my fav H2O cleanser (although that’s being discontinued and replaced with a new cleanser).  The Clarisonic renewal serum looks interesting though!
