Today I’m here with a very “hot topic”: the clarisonic! So I’ve been using this for about two weeks now and honestly, I’ve seen such amazing things I just have to blog about it immediately. I know that whenever I see a blog post that claims something brings “instant” results, I get very very skeptical but you know. I can’t help it if it’s true.
Now I think you should go and read these two posts first before reading this one just to get to know the situation around my skin:
So, let’s begin. When I first heard about the clarisonic, I was shocked at the price. I mean, that is a bit of a splurge for ONE skincare
product device. I seriously did not think it was justifiable and plenty and plenty of you would think that too. But after just having so many problems with my skin, I realised that the amount of different products I buy and try out per year honestly amounts to MUCH MUCH more than the cost of a clarisonic. So I went and did some research. All the big gurus have gave it positive review so that was a definite bonus in my mind.
So I finally decided to splurge and get it because I was just so sick and tired of my awful skin condition. Out I went. And out went the $ AUD 149 (I recommend picking it up at a sale time). And in came the Pink Clarisonic Mia (that was the only color they had but I wanted a purple one *cry* but not that big of a deal haha). Just a little background, I use dermobrasions/exfoliants for my skin quite a bit so my skin was used to that sort of treatment so unlike a few people that I’ve come across, I didn’t go through any skin purging period.
When I first started using it, I was in a really bad skin moment where I was just broken out EVERYWHERE so I was really scared of using the Clarisonic in case it was not as gentle as it claims it is. So I started using it with so so much skepticism but after 2 days (TWO days!!!) I started seeing really noticeable changes. My skin was so much smoother and just looked so much brighter and healthier. The blemishes cleared up so much faster than it usually does and honestly, I was just so shocked by how well it actually worked. I can honestly say that my skin hasn’t been as good as this in years, YEARS! So I’m currently loving this device. But all my new skin goodness is not the Clarisonic. My whole skincare system is working together right now to create amazing skin so that includes the Origins Checks and Balances, and the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clarifying lotion that I mentioned and mini-reviewed in that skincare post I mentioned up the top.
More advantages of this thing is the fact that it’s completely waterproof so I can safely use it in the shower everyday like I do. It is also tiny (the size of my hand, and I have rather small hands) which makes it easy to use and good for travel. It comes with one speed (which may be seen as a weakness but honestly, I don’t want to think about which speed is best for my skin, because this speed has been tested and shown to be the best on the face) and this speed also has a set timer. Clarisonic recommends one minute and this thing has a one minute timer already embedded so it runs for a minute without me having to time it myself!
Honestly speaking, the only weakness that it has is the charger (and it’s a really… strange… changer). It takes 18 hours to charge up to full (urgh!!!!) and you can only use it for 20 minutes at full charge. That’s 20 days if you use it once a day but only 10 if you use it twice a day. Who can keep track of that? I hate it when I don’t charge it to full or something and I go to use it and it’s out of battery. Grrrr… Get onto it Clarisonic.
And I’m not 200% sure if it’s just the Clarisonic’s amazing magical powers because I also think that it’s honestly helped my skin absorb products so much better (the same products that I was using before the splurge just seem to work better so…). But seriously speaking, it’s really not that big of a detriment compared to all the amazing beneficial effects that it’s had on my skin.
Their testimonials are honestly more than that, they’re seriously amazing and if you’re thinking of splurging on your skincare, than go for this, especially if you have problem skin. I would honestly recommend this. Oh and it comes in a range of colors (if you get it online).
For Australians: they’re stocking in David Jones, and Myer.
