Skincare Spotlight: Skincare Devices

Isn't it about time for you to retail this at-home product category? Use this handy reference guide to get started.

Ever since Clarisonic launched its cleansing brushes and was thereafter purchased by L'Oreal, people—as in brands, manufacturers and consumers—have been paying attention to the at-home skincare device category. Beyond the cleansing brush, there are now at-home rejuvenating IPLs (Intense Pulsated Lights); at-home anti-acne devices; at-home hair-removal lasers; and more. How large is this category? And who are the players? Are these devices a fad or a trend?

Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing System

Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing System

Antiaging treatments absorb better when used in tandem with this skin-cleansing system. The brush oscillates at a sonic frequency that produces more than 300 movements per second, gently massaging away dirt and oil. The system provides six times better cleansing than simply cleansing with hands alone. Call 888.525.2747 or visit
