What is the difference between the ProSonic Glow and the Clarisonic?

June 9, 2014

With so many exfolitation devices on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one is the best. Here’s a look at the ProSonic Glow and the Clarisonic so that you can understand the differences.

The ProSonic recently introduced a new model, the ProSonic Glow, sometimes known as the ProSonic 2, and it’s even better than before. Still lightweight and easy to use, many users have found that it remarkably similar to it’s more expensive, name brand Clarisonic counterpart. When you purchase your ProSonic Glow, you not only get the device, but a complete kit, including not only the wand, but three brush heads, a pumice head, as well as a cleanser and a microderm cream, in addition to the charger. The full package allows you to experience the full range of ProSonic Glow products in one easy package at one low price.

By contrast, Clarisonic offers several different devices, so you have to wade through them all to find which device best suits your needs. Each device includes a different kit, with a price increase for the increased capabilities each device offers. In fact, the Clarisonic PRO doesn’t even have a price available on the website, but the next model down, which is the only one that is really comparable to all the features that a ProSonic Glow offers, has a baseline price of over $200!

One major difference between the ProSonic Glow and the Clarisonic is that the ProSonic Glow system includes a body brush so that you can enjoy clear skin all over your body, not just on your face. By getting rid of dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth, you can get rid of the acne and clogged pores that many people experience on the chest and neck. This feature is only available on the Clarisonic’s top level models, making it an additional expense.

With the ProSonic Glow, not only do you get the body brush, but the new kit also includes a pumice stone, perfect for prepping for pedicures to keep you feet sandal ready all year long. In addition, the kit includes several different types of brush heads, so that you can find the one that best works with your skin, whether it is normal or sensitive. By contrast, with the Clarisonic, it appears that you must choose your brush head, as only some are available with each model.

What may be the most confusing part about the Clarisonic system is that while many people purchase it is an exfoliation device; it is actually a cleansing system, according to the company. So while many find that their skin improves and has less acne and a brighter, younger appearance, for some people the system proves to be too harsh. This is especially true when used with physical exfoliants like scrubs, which can actually tear and damage the skin or cause excessive dryness.

Instead, the sonic technology gently cleanses the skin, giving a feeling of gentle vibrations rather than deep penetration into pores to remove dirt and makeup buildup.

The ProSonic has been found to effectively treat many different types of skin, from aging to acne and everything in between. It can also be ordered with additional brush heads so that not only can you take off every last bit of makeup, but you can also apply your make up smoothly and easily with the additional brush head options.

The new ProSonic Glow has been updated to include even more features. The charger light is now brighter and easier to see and blinks while charging and then becomes a solid when it is done so that there is no guessing. In addition, while some felt that the ProSonic was too lightweight, it now has a rubberized grip so that it fits securely in the hand.

Many people that have used both types of devices find that much of the differences between the ProSonic Glow and Clarisonic product are negligible. The Clarisonic is considered much more expensive but not much more effective than the ProSonic Glow, making any differences in performance not worth the additional expense of paying for the recognized brand name. In addition, many users report enjoying the different speeds that the ProSonic Glow offers, which cannot be found on all Clarisonic products.
