For all your beauty advice…
We’ve all found ways to justify spending a little extra on a product we’ve come to love. Whether it’s a cleanser, an eye cream or a moisturizer, we’ll find a way to work it into our budget. And why not, we’re worth it, right? Of course we are! But what about spending more than a little extra on a product? What about one that some may look at as an investment? Every now and then a product comes along that I believe we should splurge on. The one I’m talking about right now is the Clarisonic.
What’s a Clarisonic? Well, if you’re familiar with the Sonicare toothbrush, you will understand the logic behind the Clarisonic Cleansing System, because the same technology was applied to the Clarisonic that was used with the Sonicare. Translation: It’s a very high-tech way to clean your skin. The Clarisonic feels so gentle on your skin, it’s hard to imagine that the brushes move 300 times per second…yes, I just said 300 times per second. So, what exactly does that mean? Well, to put it so anyone can understand that, it means that this product will get your skin a heck of a lot cleaner than just washing with your hands or a wash cloth. Because it cleans so deep, it’s removing 6 times more makeup and dirt than regular cleansing. And because it’s getting your skin so clean, that means that your products are going to absorb better into your skin and you’ll probably use less, saving you money in that area over time. One might think that would feel rough on your skin, or make your skin red and sensitive to touch when you’re finished cleansing with this. It doesn’t.
I had been reading about the Clarisonic for a while and I was intrigued. I’ve suffered with breakouts my whole life and I still do. I pretty much have my skin under control, but I still get the blemishes and I have a lot of congestion underneath my skin on my chin and my cheeks. My 11-year-old daughter is starting to break out as well. She’s at the age where she’s getting blackheads on her nose, but they go so deep, they are stretching her pores. No amount of cleaning, scrubbing or treating seemed to be working on them. Since the brush heads are detachable, meaning you don’t have to share with anyone, everyone in the family can have their own. I think that’s what finally sold me…I could make this investment and I would be able to share it with the people in the family who need it. My 9-year-old is safe…for now.
When I first got it, the only complaint I have is that I couldn’t use it right away. I had to charge the darn thing for 24 hours…stupid technology!! I was very eager to try it the next night and it was everything I had read about and more. The only time my skin ever felt so soft was when I had a professional microdermabrasion, and that hurt! This feels so gentle on your skin and after just one week, my skin looked brighter, my pores looked smaller and my skin was so soft and finally felt clean. I wanted to keep touching my skin, but that just brings on more breakouts. As for my 11-year-old? Well, after only 3 uses on her, the blackheads on her nose are quickly diminishing and her skin looks great. I know she’ll still get breakouts, that’s just the age, but if this can save her from the 2 rounds of Accutane I had to go on before the age of 16, then that right there tells me this was one of the best purchases I could have made.
The only thing I want to know is: Where the heck has this thing been my whole life?? It’s that good! If you’ve ever seen one, or read about it, and you just weren’t sure, I’m here to tell you to go ahead and buy it, you won’t regret it. Yes, it’s expensive, but 100% worth it, and you will love the results. I think the Clarisonic could make me actually enjoy getting a facial again, since it’s taking care of all that congestion on my chin, maybe extractions won’t be so painful now.
Do you have one? Tell me what you love about it, or what made you purchase it. I think everyone should own one!
