Skincare enthusiasts are no stranger to Clarisonic, a brand that’s known for its electronic face cleansing devices. Many skincare enthusiasts would recall the brand as where they got their very first skincare device.
The company made the announcement in an Instagram Story that it will be shutting down for good by 30 September.
In case you can’t view the screenshot above, here’s what it says:
“After more than a decade of game-changing innovation and industry-leading technology, the Clarisonic brand will be shutting down on September 30, 2020.

Clarisonic is owned by cosmetics giant L’Oreal Group and has been in operation for 10 years now.
On the FAQ page of Clarisonic’s website, the brand explained that “the difficult decision was made so that L’Oreal can focus its attention on its other core business offerings.”
They did not give any further explanation about the reasons behind its closure apart from this statement.
The FAQ page also indicates that select product warranties will be honoured until 31 October 2022, and returns and rewards will be accepted until September 2020. The Clarisonic app will continue to be available.
Clarisonic, which used to be sold in Sephora Singapore and at certain beauty counters here, has already left the Singapore market in 2018. We talked about Clarisonic’s departure from Singapore here.
If you’re hoping to score Clarisonic products at 50% off, head over to their website. However, note that they don’t ship directly to Singapore, so if you want to shop on the site, you’d need to use a freight-forwarding service.
