My New Clarisonic
So, for my birthday, my best girls all chipped in and got me a Clarisonic Mia. (it's even pink, my fave color!). I started using this skincare brush about a month ago and I have to say I am VERY impressed! I have pretty normal, un-problematic skin anyway, but have definitely noticed some changes since I started using it. I use it once a day, at night after removing my makeup. I have about 3 cleansers I rotate between, Cetaphil, MD Forte III Cleanser, and Aquaglycolic (which one I use depends on what I plan on doing after cleansing, Retin A, micropeel, etc). After I remove my makeup with a cleansing oil (or makeup wipe if I'm feeling lazy) I slather on my cleanser, wet the Clarisonic brush a bit, and turn it on. I move all over my face in small circular motions. It turns off automatically after 2 minutes. Splash some water on my face and ta da! Smooth, glowy skin! I didn't have large pores to begin with but I swear their practically invisible now. And the few blackheads I would get on and around my nose, GONE! I haven't had any issues with purging, or irritation or anything. I did switch to the delicate brush for my face and will use the sensitive one on my body. If you have a chance to get this, I think it is well worth it!
