I remember reading about the Clarisonic a couple of years ago in a magazine, I think it was Vogue or Harper's Bazaar and the article said Jennifer Garner uses it and I thought, "If Jennifer Garner uses it then it must work!" For those of you who don't know what the Clarisonic is it's a little device that uses a soft and gentle brush that oscillates to cleanse the skin deeply and it's friggin' AWESOME. It has a patented sonic frequency of 300 movements per second, removing 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt than manual cleansing with your hands. It's basically a car wash for your face! Last Christmas I asked my family and friends for gift cards to Sephora so I could purchase the $200.00 Clarisonic Mia which is a smaller, travel size version of the Clarisonic.
Here's the box it came in:
It also came with a 1 oz. trial size of their Gentle Hydro Cleanser:
I have combination skin. I don't have acne or break out very often. Only once every three/four months or so I'll get a huge-ass pimple out of the blue that needs its own chair at the dinner table, usually on my chin. (See how to get rid of one of those here.) So I don't have problem skin except for my seriously dark under eye circles which the Clarisonic can't really help. But, since I started using the Clarisonic in December I have noticed the following changes:
- my pores have shrunk
- my skin looks more even and feels rejuvenated and refreshed
- my face feels soft and smooth
- my skin looks younger
I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of my Mia. I should have bought it a long time ago! Every time I use it I can't believe how deeply and thoroughly it cleanses my face, I swear if I rubbed my fingers up and down my cheeks they would squeak! It was definitely worth the $200.00 price tag and it will forever be part of my daily skin care routine. I can't say enough good things about it! To read more about this gem, click here.
