See Brighter Days With Clarisonic Sonic Radiance

The new Clarisonic Sonic Radiance System reduces hyperpigmentation caused by acne scars, hormones and sun exposure. Here's what our editor says after trying it.

I don’t go to bed without using my Clarisonic cleansing brush. It’s become as much of a staple in my daily regimen as brushing my teeth. The deep clean feels extremely cathartic at the end of a long day.

I also use my Clarisonic every night because I know that exfoliating your skin can enhance the effectiveness of any number of serums or nighttime moisturizers you may slather on afterwards—the fewer dry, dead skin cells there are gunking up the surface of your skin, the easier it is for the ensuing anti-aging elixirs to penetrate deeply and get to work.

This fall, Clarisonic has introduced a new system to its lineup, with includes its first ever post-cleansing serum. And that’s a pretty smart move since, ideally, you’ll be applying it after you’ve used the device when your skin is optimally primed to absorb the serum and reap the rewards. The Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution targets the appearance of hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure, age, hormones, and acne inflammation. It also remedies general uneven skin tone and dullness. The kit includes the Aria Cleansing Device, equipped with a new super soft Radiance Brush Head, two cleansers and a Brightening Activator Serum, meant to be applied immediately after cleansing in the morning and evening. The serum contains  brightening ingredients ellagic acid and phenylethyl resorcinol to combat discoloration, and also provide intense hydration to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. I’ve been using the system now since August and have been enjoying my noticeably glow-ier skin.

Get It Now: Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution Kit, $249, includes Clarisonic Aria, Universal Voltage Charger, Radiance Brush Head, Skin Illuminating Cleanser, Skin Renewing Peel Wash, Brightening Activator Serum, or if you already own an Aria device, get the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Customization Set, $125, which is the same kit minus the device.
