I have been debating a Clairsonic for YEARS. I am 29 now, and still occasionally get a zit or two (and seriously, one or two might as well be 20 for me...I hate having them at all). I also tend to get very clogged pores and blackheads, as well as dry skin around my t-zone when the seasons change. I finally used points and a coupon code to get this about a month ago, and I am IN LOVE. (Wait until a 20% off coupon comes because I got this for like $89 after using that and some points.) I want to experiment with the Deep Pore and Acne brushes because I still get the beginnings of a zit, but I must say that they have been fewer since I started to use this, and they don't last as long or scar/cause red spots the way they used to. I actually ran this brush right over a zit last week and it opened it up and helped it to clear faster than when I used to squeeze them with my lancer tool. My skin is so soft and the dry flakes have disappeared. I do use a makeup remover towelette to get the grime off before cleansing with the Clairsonic, and my skin is glowing and the dark spots are clearing up. I am very happy I bought this and look forward to my skin continuing to improve. The massaging action is very relaxing and my skin just breathes better and absorbs products better, too. 5 stars all around!
