It’s been a while since Clarisonic has quietly left Singapore, and if you’ve been struggling to find a replacement to fill the spot of their iconic range of cleansing devices, we feel you.

Clarisonic may have left but it doesn’t mean we don’t have any other options for cleansing devices. There are actually plenty of good options around and we’ve decided to put together a list of the best Clarisonic alternatives you can consider!


clarisonic alternatives - refa clear

You may have already known ReFa as a beauty device brand, most famous for rollers that help you create V-shaped facial contours. The Japanese brand has since ventured into the cleansing device space with the launch of ReFa CLEAR.

There are many outstanding features in this cleansing device. First, it is equipped with 3D Sonic Ion Technology, a technology that hasn’t been seen in other cleansing devices before them.

There are two components to this technology: 3D micro-movement (as opposed to 2D sound vibration methods) that helps to target the crevices of skin more effectively, and being negatively charged so that it can repel dirt that’s deeply embedded in pores (which are made of negative ions) and remove them easily.

On top of these, ReFa CLEAR uses high quality Kumanofude brush bristles. This refers to a form of brush-making craft by Japanese artisans, and is known to be ultra-fine and gentle so that there is no frictional damage done to your skin.

There is certainly no doubt that this is one of the best Clarisonic alternatives out there!

ReFa CLEAR retails at S$360 and is available on ReFa, Takashimaya, TANGS, as well as all Sephora stores. 

2. YA-MAN Circle Peeling Pro

Clarisonic Alternatives Ya Man Circle Peeling Pro

Did you know that YA-MAN, a leading brand for beauty devices that has made its name in Japan, is also available in Singapore? It previously kicked off its launch here with five of its star products, which include the YA-MAN Circle Peeling Pro, one of the best Clarisonic alternatives out there.

This cleansing device uses advanced ultrasonic micro-vibrations and delivers three key functions in one device. In the “Peeling Mode”, the Circle Peeling Pro whirs at 90,000 times per second to help gently exfoliate dead skin cells.

Its “Pore Mode” has an ion-cleansing function to lift dirt from deep within pores. Finally, the “Tightening Mode” helps stimulate skin so pores look tauter, and skin looks healthy and rejuvenated.

YA-MAN Circle Peeling Pro retails at S$229 and is currently available at Lazada.

3. Foreo LUNA 3

clarisonic alternatives - foreo

Fans of Foreo love that the bristles of this cleansing device is made with silicone, making it easier to clean and faster to dry, hence more hygienic. It also means that there’s no need to change brush heads, unlike most of the cleansing devices out there.

The LUNA 3, in particular, is said to be one of the best Clarisonic alternatives because of the T-Sonic technology used in its facial cleansing brush.

Once you’re done with cleansing, you can also flip the device around for a firming massage channelling lower-frequency pulsations deeper into the skin for a lasting firming effect.

There are three variants for you to choose from to suit your skin concerns: Combination Skin, Normal Skin, and Sensitive Skin. There’s even a variation with a robust brush for men with thicker skin and facial hair.

Foreo LUNA 3 retails for S$299 at Foreo and Sephora.sg.

4. IUIGA Sonic Silicone Facial Cleansing Device

Similar to the one from Foreo, this is made with an anti-bacterial silicone that dries quickly. The IUIGA cleansing device vibrates up to 8,000 times a minute to deeply but gently cleanse your pores. It comes with six intensity settings so you can customise the experience according to your preference.

Besides the cleansing function, it also has a side that’s specially made for massaging, which vibrates at 4,500 times per minute. The massaging tool is designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as help skin look firmer.

IUIGA Sonic Silicone Facial Cleansing Device retails at S$39.90 and is available at IUIGA.

5. Magnitone London First Step Skin-Balancing Compact Cleansing Brush

The Skinsoft Antibacterial brush head is able to effectively exfoliate the skin surface to eliminate excess oils and dirt while still being gentle on your skin. We love that the bristles are also protected by Biomaster which are protective silver ions that guard against bacteria and microbes.
