Skin cleansing enters the electronic age
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While trying to relax during a meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology in Raleigh, N.C., in May, Dr. Erin Gilbert got a facial.

"I thought, 'Why am I paying for someone to use a Clarisonic on me when I have one at home?'" she said. Clarisonic rechargeable cleansing brushes, as well as products by other brands, seem to be in many a bathroom these days. Gilbert initially was skeptical of these scrubbers, but sampled the Clarisonic, Neutrogena and Olay versions because her patients were using them. Now she uses the Clarisonic every day. More
