Clarins makes perfect cleansers for my Clarisonic!

So I've been keeping a beauty secret from you all - I finally broke down and got myself a Clarisonic!  Right after Christmas actually - I wanted to give it a good test run before posting anything so keep an eye out for that in the next couple of weeks.

My biggest challenge with my Clarisonic has been the cleanser issue.  They give you a few of their sample sized cleansers with the kit but I wasn't liking the way liquid cleansers were working with it - I would either pour the cleanser directly onto the brush - in which case I felt like most it it was disappearing to the bottom and not ending up on my face, or I would wet my face, rub the cleaner into my face and then use the brush - the problem there was I couldn't open my eyes to see what was going on or the cleanser would drip into my eyes - see how complicated my life is!

Clarins to the rescue - both the cleansers that I like best with my Clarisonic are by Clarins - I suppose it makes sense considering how close their names are...  First off is their new Gentle Beauty Soap - $15 -  for face and body.  I must admit that I haven't used a face soap in many many years so I wasn't sure how I would like it but I really do!  It has a nice light fruity scent that I really enjoy.  All I have to do is wet my Clarisonic brush and rub it around on the top of the soap about 5 times which gives me the perfect amount of soap to clean my face.  My only complaint is that I wish it came in some sort of plastic case, it just comes wrapped in a piece of wax paper which was destroyed by water pretty quickly so I ended up moving it to a round tupperwear container because it's also the wrong shape to fit in any soap dish known to man.

My second fabulous Clarins find is Pure Melt Cleansing Gel - $36 - 125ml - If you are undecided about what kind of cleanser you want to use you will love this one!  You rub it onto your dry skin as a gel, it melts into an oil and when it's wet, it becomes a milk!  And because you don't wet your face first before applying, this is perfect for my Clarisonic - no dripping! and it's my cleanser of choice for when I'm wearing a lot of makeup because it does an amazing job of getting it all off!  It's labeled suitable for all skin types although I don't know that very oily skin types would appreciate it as much!

Is there a Clarins cleanser that I'm missing and must try?  Please share!
