The Clarisonic—love it or hate it?

A few years ago, I had some extra money to burn and I dropped it on the nearly $200 Clarisonic, the cleansing/exfoliating device touted by beauty editors as the greatest thing in skin care. But is it really? I'm not so sure. Most of the time I forget to use it. When I do use it regularly, every night, or every other night, I begin to find that my skin looks scratched. I think it might be that the brush is too abrasive on my skin. The Clarisonic offers various brushes, and I'm going to try the ultra sensitive one before I officially give up on this pricey contraption. But, for me, it hasn't worked like I expected. When I go through phases when I've been using it, my skin looks like a mess, so I'll leave it in the cabinet for a few weeks and then my skin returns to normal. I'm curious if other Clarisonic users have had the same issues? Is this expensive tool really worth it? Sound off in the comments below!
