Blending Contour: Apply dark shade along the jawline and hollows of the cheeks. Apply light shade to the high points of the face, like the tops of cheeks and bridge of nose. Then turn on the Clarisonic. Starting at cheek, move device gently in circular motions. Blend forehead and then nose and chin area. It is not necessary to rub or apply pressure.

To Quick Clean: Use a daily brush cleaner to spray and instantly wipe off on a tissue in between uses.

To Deep Clean: Remove the brush from handle, wet and lather with a brush shampoo, foaming facial cleanser or mild hand soap. Rinse and repeat as needed. Reattach to the handle, place the brush head onto a towel and power on device to remove excess water. Reshape the bristles and air dry.

Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

Ok so I was so excited to use this! But it lost some brush hairs immediately as I was applying it ! My clarisonic is wonderful so I was surprised? It does a good job and no more bristles seem to be falling but that was a little bummer at first thus 4 stars. Time will tell.

    Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

    I saw this on IG, then on YT... And after a couple of videos, I decided to give it a try, I already had the Clarisonic so why not? ... Well, I was not expecting that much, but this thing is great, it works! (At least for me), The first time I used it, it did shed a couple of 'hairs', but after that never again; and I must say, it cuts blending time in what? 1/3...

    Is VERY easy to wash, although you can also use one of those brush sprays (I prefer to wash it since I have delicate skin and might get acne).

    It's 5 Stars for me, is worth it if you have a Clarisonic!

      Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

      I typically don't write reviews, but for this I have to. First of all, purchasing my clarisonic almost a year ago is the best thing I have ever done for myself. This foundation brush is just hands down amazing. I bought it last night on a whim and used it this morning to come to work. I use Lancôme foundation and primed and poreless primer as well as hangover primer water when I'm done. One of my coworkers said to me "did you get new make up? your face looks so smooth!" And it really is all thanks to this brush. this brush is now my must have in addition to my clarisonic! you will not regret the purchase

        Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

        I'm 59 and have light, oily skin and large pores. I mix IT CC cream and Urban Decay Naked foundation and I was never happy with any brush application so I thought I would try this. It's better than using a regular brush but I still wasn't happy with the finish. I went back to my tried and true method: mix product in my palm, apply with fingers, blot with blotting paper (YES! Really! This makes a huge difference for me), blend with Beauty Blender and THEN, use 3 cycles of the Clarisonic foundation head....one for forehead, one for nose and uppper cheeks, and one for chin/jaw and lower cheeks. I dust with a super-light amount of Tarte setting powder, finish my eyes, do blush and contour and then go back with a finishing light application of Too Faced Candlelight and ANOTHER 3 cycles with the Clarisonic head to do a final "buff" of the whole face. It really improves the look of my finsihed face to use it in this way, so, for me it's not a time-saver but it's well worth the extra few minutes to achieve this look. Hope this is helpful!

                        Wanted to like this but the hair sheds on the face as I'm using it - getting stuck in the liquid foundation. Ruins the makeup. Such a disappointment! Would give it zero stars but the site wouldn't let me.

                        • Q:

                          Soo... since I have to switch out the heads every time I want to clean my face versus use the foundation brush, that means the collective run time timer on my brushes won't be of use to me anymore then huh? After the 180 minutes or whatever it is when you're suppose to put on a new acne brush head.

                            Hi there, thanks so much for your question. For your cleansing brush head if you are using it for twice per day we suggest changing your brush head after 90 days. If you are using Smart Profile or Smart Profile Uplift and using Dynamic Brush Head or the new Revitalizing Brush Head the brush head contains a chip which the device will read and will let you know when it is time to change your brush head, which is after 180 uses and will not interfere with your Sonic Foundation Brush Head usage.

                            Hi there, thank you so much for your question. It really is your preference of which speed you would use. Depending on your foundation (fuller coverage, thicker, cream or demi - matte) a higher speed will offer fantastic blending too. For the area around your nose where you feel it may be streaky, spend a bit more time in that area to let the brush head blend your foundation completely. Happy blending! :)

                          I have a Mia 2. It gives a certain pulse, so to speak, when I need to go to a different part of my face and runs for a minute total. Do you use this brush in the same order and switch areas like you do with the cleansing brush, or do you just ignore the pulses? Or does this brush not work with the Mia 2?

                          I have the Mia 2. What speed do you use to apply foundation with the Sonic Foundation brush head? Also, does the makeup splatter at all during application? Finally, I am using a liquid foundation with sheer to medium coverage. Do I put the foundation in the palm of my hand and then dip the brush in it?

                            Try using speed two for blending your foundation. Apply your foundation to your skin as you normally would and then use the foundation brush head to blend. Your foundation will spread slightly and then blend into your skin. Keep blending until you feel you have received your desired finish. Thanks for your question!

                          Hello! I use a full coverage cream foundation and I get ABSOLUTELY FULL COVERAGE when I use a flat top Kabuki brush and stimple/ pat in the foundation onto my skin. When I buff the foundation with a brush I get less coverage and my malasma on my cheeks and forehead (hyperpigmentation) peeks thru. Will this Clarisonic Foundation Brush provide the same full coverage the first go around or will it just blend so well it will sheer out my foundation, causing me to apply more foundation to get full coverage? Will the vibration of the brush work like a stimple/patting application?
