Clarisonic Review

Hi! Today I am sharing my love for a new-to-me skincare product.. read along :)

The clarisonic has very mixed reviews, which is why I was hesitant to get one. I have read that they can be dangerous for your skin, unnecessary if you're cleansing your face as you properly should, etc. Even with all the negative reviews, I still really wanted to try one out. I received a clarisonic mia 1 for my birthday and I was thrilled. I have been using it for a month now and I can honestly say that it has changed my skin.

I do not have sensitive skin in the least, so I haven't had a problem with it being too harsh or aggravating my skin. I love seeing all the makeup that is removed from my face that a regular wash could never remove. **It is said that if you wash your face with a makeup removing wash and a cleansing oil all your makeup will come off, but my skincare regime is already long enough, I don't want to add another product, maybe in the future. ** I wish I could use the clarisonic every night because I love it so much, but that's not healthy for your skin. My esthitician said it can be a great product, but it really should be used as a treatment only. Overuse can cause erosion ( a cyst, or the discontinuity of the skin exhibiting incomplete loss of the epidermis) and actually make your skin get worse. I like to use this product 2-3 times a week. 

I have never had bad acne or breakouts, but always the one or two pimples on my chin during "that time of the month", though I have always had tiny, under the skin bumps and texture that would bother me. Since using my clarisonic, I would say about 85% of those bumps have subsided. 

It is recommended to change you brush head every 3-4 months and clean it regularly. To clean my brush, I simply wash it with rubbing alcohol to kill off any germs. Also, do not store it in your shower or any dark place that would allow mold or other bacteria to grow; I leave it by the sink to dry out. 

After using my clarisonic at night I follow up with any serums I use, eye cream and moisturizer. This leaves my skin feeling so clean, refreshed, and baby soft. 

I recommended this to anyone who doesn't have sensitive skin or a skin ailment and is looking to boost the look of their complexion and really clean out your pores. 

I have been washing my face with my first aid beauty face cleanser, and  I use ponds dry skin cream for my moisturizer and Ole Henriksen invigorating serum and eye creme after using the clarisonic.

What is your impression of the Clarisonic?

  4. I loved reading this review-- so thorough and helpful!! I just ordered a Clarisonic knockoff and can't wait for it to arrive now! I'm glad you warned against using it every day though. I'm battling acne and probably would have been too gung-ho about my new brush if I hadn't read that...

    Love your blog!
