Clarisonic Aria: Tried & Tested

aria 3

We’ve all seen the rave reviews about the benefits of the classic Clarisonic and all its brightening benefits to your skin, placing us mere mortals a step closer to that celebrity glow we all know, love and want. So does the new Aria model live up to its famous sister? We had four beauty team testers give us their verdict…

Laura Embling – Marketing Assistant, Beauty

“After using the Clarisonic Aria, my skin felt extremely clean and soft to the touch. Not only did my make-up go on more smoothly and feel fresher throughout the day, but my morning and evening skincare products felt more absorbed.

Despite the instructions being a little confusing, it was still really easy to use and I loved the in-built, adjustable timer! It was very gentle on the skin; despite this, I saw better affects than using an abrasive scrub, which can sometimes leave my skin a little red and sore. Having never used a product like this before, I was really impressed with the results – it’s now a constant in my beauty regime!”

Andy Wright – Merchandiser, Beauty 

“Only after a short amount of use my skin felt clean and refreshed and also less oily than I’m used to. It may be a little too gentle for my skin but it’s definitely not abrasive and it can be used with any cleanser, making it easy to fit into the skincare regime – bonus that it’s shower safe too! It’s very easy to use and charge, despite the instructions not being too clear, however I will need to use it for longer to see any real skincare benefits.”

Heather Perry – Online Category Executive, Beauty


“I have been using the Aria for two weeks and I am so happy with the difference it has made to my skin – it feels smooth and looks visibly brighter. Before using this product I would often complain of dry skin especially in the winter but this has now almost disappeared! Makeup is sitting evenly on my skin, and I now apply less throughout the day.

I have added this to my daily skin care regime and found it very easy and enjoyable to use. I place a pea size amount of the refreshing gel cleanser to the brush; this has a lovely scent and helps the brush to be very gentle against my skin. I chose to use the middle speed setting for 60 seconds as I think this suits my skin needs. The Clarisonic beeps when I need to change the area of the face I am cleansing which is really helpful for an even application. After this application I feel my skin is extremely cleansed and makeup is totally removed.

The Aria has some great features; a battery-life indicator and a drying stand-turned-charging station when coupled with the pLink charger. I find it handy that it also has a USB-enabled charger so I can charge it by my computer!

This product has made me realise the importance of looking after my skin due to the amazing difference I have noticed in just two weeks. I can’t wait to carry on using this product to see if it can improve my skin even more than it already has!”

Aaron Foster – PR Manager, Fashion & Beauty

“I was really impressed at the ‘deep clean’ feel it gave my skin after use. My skin felt softer and supple and it was also particularly great at softening stubble pre-shaving. As men’s skin is fairly tough, I found using it twice a day perfect for my skin regime. It’s a great addition to my skin care routine as it ensures I spend a solid and regular amount of time on skin care morning and night.

I found it easy to use – there are three speed settings which you can use to increase or decrease the level of speed depending on how thorough you want it to be. Good on a higher setting at the end of the day when your skin is prone to picking up pollution / grime from commuting etc.”


The Clarisonic Aria is a clear winner with our testers! Are you ready to try it?

My name's Bianca, Menswear Editor. Contrary to belief, I love Eastenders but wasn't named after the character... heyday of hoops and ponytail quickly erased from memory. Times have changed (thankfully) and although I love beauty, I equally love a good men's oxford shirt and jacket or two, for myself of course. You'll now find me flicking through men's magazine pages and my favourites list is increasingly becoming male dominated. Dare I say, there's a lot to learn from their style...
