Clarisonic VS Clinique Sonic Cleansing Brush

Okay folks! Debate of the season. Clarisonic or the newest Clinique Sonic Cleansing Brush. I am going to try my hardest at giving a non biased review. If you’ve been contemplating on which brush to purchase then I hope this review helps you! I have tried and own both.

Clarisonic (Mia, Mia 2, Aria, etc…)


This brand has definitely made some noise for the past few years! Starting with the Mia (one speed), this cleansing brush is guaranteed to clean skin six times deeper than cleansing with your hands alone. Clarisonic has also produced multiple brush heads to customize your brush. Acne prone skin? There’s a brush for that. Sensitive skin? There’s a brush for that? Enlarged pores? There’s also a brush for that. (Warning: slight bias ahead) my question is, why do you need 3 speeds on a cleansing brush? I think they make more speeds so they can up their prices. I own the Mia and honestly, every brush I tried was too rough on my skin. And you will definitely need to fork out some cash. The clarisonic brushes start at $99 and go all the way up to $225.


Clarisonic has remained the number one cleansing brush brand for a while now. But I have this to say Clarisonic… Watch out. A skin revolution has been born.

Clinique Sonic Cleansing System:

Those of you who are true loyal Clinique clients are going to automatically want in on this!
At a decent price of $89.50, this skin revolution will rock your world.


This ergonomic light weight brush is Swiss engineered. Each bristle is perfectly rounded at the tip for a gentle cleansing experience. It is uniquely created to clean different areas of your face in a scientific way. The green bristles are designed to unclog your pores throughout your T-zone and the white bristles are gentler for your cheeks and chin. Staying true to the Clinique brand, this brush has anti microbial bristles so it doesn’t collect nasty bacteria while sitting in your wet shower. Dermatologically developed, allergy tested, 100% fragrance free. That is Clinique’s promise. This brush is so soft on my skin and leaves my skin feeling incredibly refreshed! This brush was created to work with your customized 3-step skincare system.


*Lots of people are under the impression that these brushes exfoliate your skin. Let me clear this up by saying that Clarisonic and the Clinique Sonic Brush do not exfoliate. These cleansing brushes are meant to clean skin. They do not loosen the bonds of dead skin cells.

Which brush are you going to try?

Hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. The only think you were wrong about was that the brush heads start at 99. The machines themselves that come with with brush heads do range from 99-225, the brushes are 27 each-30. And you are supposed to change them every three months. But aside from that I had a question, does the clinque one oscillate? And does it require brush changing? How often and how much do they cost?


    • Yes! I edited that because I realized I posted the old prices! And in some areas the clarisonic brush replaces start at $25 or 2 for $40. The Clinique brush is a high speed sonic cleansing brush. The brush works in high vibrations to clean the skin. The actual brush does not spin. You still need to replace these brush heads every three months just like Clarisonic. The replacement brushes are $26. 🙂 hope I answered all of your questions! Thanks for reading!
