For a limited time, Sephora packaged the Clarisonic with a full-sized Kinerase product that I love, plus 3 trial size tubes of the (Clarisonic) cleansers. When it was time for F&F, I jumped at the opportunity. While I like the Clarisonic brush and (still love) the Kinerase C8 treatment, I dislike the cleansers, so far.

This cleanser is meant for normal-oily skin, and it does feel like my skin gets cleaner than with the "gentle hydro" cleanser (yuck). However, I have also very sensitive skin (pretty common for those of use that are prone to breakouts) - and this stuff has a LOT of fragrance in it. Even after I rinse (thoroughly) the smell hangs on my skin & my skin seems much more irritated. (I know that It's not the brush, b/c when I use it with other cleansers, my skin is fine.)
