Clarisonic Opal review

AKA  An Eye opening experience…

This morning while at my friendly local medspa I complained about how I needed to book an intense therapy session with my aesthetician because of the lines I’m seeing around my eyes. They aren’t really crows feet… more like dry looking excessive lines under my eyes and puffiness.

Contrary to what Hubs believes, I don’t mind crows feet… Crows feet make you look like you’ve been happy for a really long time. These lines just make me look TIRED. Old and tired. (Not to mention I’m also starting to get skin tags around my eyes like my Maw Maw used to have *shiver*)

The ladies behind the reception desk joked and told me to take more allergy medicine. Smart asses… Then, bless her, one of the gals said “come here and try this”…

This little pod just made my day… and possibly changed my life.  It’s the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System with Anti-Aging Sea Serum. Which is a total mouthful of a name. But however you say it, after ONE use, my lines are nearly gone.

Blink and re-read that last bit…

ONE USE people! 


I’ve been eye creaming my way through Sephora for a few years trying to find something, ANYTHING to help. This little beauty deserves some major praise.

The Clarisonic site lists the following benefits… 

Benefits (as reported in our clinical studies)
  • An immediate reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; results last for hours and build over time
  • Younger looking skin
  • Skin appears refreshed and energized
  • Skin appears brighter
  • Skin appears healthier
  • Improved skin texture
  • Noticeably firmer skin
  • Increased skin hydration

I’ll vouch for the immediate results. My under eye area is definitely firmer and I look like I had a really good night of sleep. I’m going to use it twice a day as soon as I get over my excitement… but today, it may or may not be used upwards of 5 times… I just HAVE to see…

I poked around online and it looks like most places will charge $245 for the system, which is what I paid for mine at the spa.  Amazon and Sephora both carry it.  I’m thinking that’s not too shabby considering I have 7 or 8 $60+ tubes/pots of eye creams in my bathroom that didn’t do much at all for me. Actually, when I look at that written down, this thing is a DEAL! ;-)

I’m pairing it with my Cosmedix eye serum that I do believe is working well for hydration and reducing dark circles. I’m a Cosmedix junkie, so I may review a few of their products later if you’d like to know how they work for me. I will certainly be updating this post with a follow-up to let you know how I’m looking after a week or month or so…

Until then… Be good to your skin! Proactive is better than reactive any day!!!
