So I finally caved. I have been wanting a Clarisonic for about a year and the combination of having birthday money burning a hole in my pocket and a 10% off code for Feel Unique made me finally give in. I got the plus, as with the code it wasn’t much more than a Classic full priced and I wanted to be able to use it as a body brush, so it made sense, although if you do just want to use it for cleansing I would say the Mia is a lot cheaper!
I use this twice a day, and have been for the past fortnight. Please remember this isn’t a review, I just want to catalogue how I am getting on with it every few weeks or so, as I think it will be helpful for anyone considering buying one.
When I started using this I was suffering with quite few breakouts, and a lot of cystic acne on my jawline. After I ordered this I literally couldn’t wait for it to arrive as it was driving me mad! I use the sensitive brush head, and use it on the highest speed setting, after about four days my spots had pretty much all cleared up, and until today I have had no spots, aside from one pesky one that cropped up on my chin last night.
The texture of my skin has definitely improved, feels a lot smoother and the stubborn blocked pores look a lot better.
I’ve used this with a lot of different cleansers, but my current favourites are REN’s No1 Purity Cleansing Balm at night and Origins Checks and Balances in the morning.
In each of these posts I am going to include a picture of my skin without make up, so if you are of a nervous disposition look away now…
So at the minute my main concern is scarring and uneven skin tone, which I am hoping will hopefully submit to the products I am using currently. I don’t have the best skin in the world, but this is the best it has been for a long time.
I haven’t hit the dreaded ‘purge’ stage yet, and am really loving the Clarisonic so far!
