Is it safe to use a Clarisonic facial cleansing brush if I'm using a moisturizer with retinol?
Absolutely! You may have to turn down the settings to a gentler cycle, but it should still work very well. The Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($195; lovelyskin.com) is a great tool and seems to be especially good for folks with blackheads and whiteheads.
