I'm not sure about you, but my favorite part of wearing makeup is taking it off. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MAKEUP, but I love a freshly cleansed face better. I am religious about washing before bed and when I wake up in the morning. A few weeks ago while at Nordstrom's Beauty Blush Hour, the lovely cosmetics ladies were nearly appalled to hear that I did not own a Clarisonic. So appalled that they sent me home with one (the Clarisonic Mia 2 to be specific)
Now, I've worked in cosmetics for a long time and sold a lot of Clarisonic's. I knew the benefits and could probably tell you everything about it with my eyes closed, but I had never actually used it myself. So that night, I charged it up and, removed my eye makeup and had at it.
My skin felt amazing. So So So clean, with out being dried out. And it's idiot proof - push the button and the Mia pulses to let you know when to move on to the next area of your face.
Ok, Day 1: clean as a whistle.
I continued using this little miracle once-twice a day for a week. I thought, surely my skin would react to all this extra attention it was getting OR I would breakout because my pores were getting rid of all the junk hidden but nope, it only got better. My skins clarity has been unreal - not ruddy or dry - radiant, smooth, and even. My foundation applies 10x better. I don't have to work as hard to make it smooth over those dehydrated areas of my face, because they aren't there any more.
Week 1: Full on obsession
So what does it do?
Typical cleansing (hands, soap, & water) can still leave oil, makeup and dirt in your pores. The Clarisonic uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently remove 6 times more makeup and 2 times more dirt than just washing your face. Many people think that the Clarisonic spins in a circle and is a heavy duty exfoliator. It actually oscillates back and forth in tiny little movements that you can't even detect except for the vibration that you feel.
