Let me first start by saying I have put off buying a Clarisonic for about a year. I have been deterred by the $150 price tag and honestly didn`t think that an expensive Clarisonic could REALLY clean my skin that much better. I ended up buying it on the QVC website through their Easy Pay option. I pay $56/month for the next 3 months so somehow that made it better in my mind - I know, I know it`s not really but it`s how I justified it.
Can I tell you I can`t believe I`ve lived without this thing for so long? It really is everything it`s hyped up to be. I have only been using it for about a week but I can already see a noticeable difference in my skin. The overall texture is already improving. This little thing manages to get out dirt I didn`t even know was still trapped in my skin.
I`ll first tell you what came with it and how it works and then I`ll tell you how I`ve worked it into my skincare routine. My Mia 2 came with the Mia 2 itself (mine is a pretty lavender purple color), a travel case, the power cord and a trial size of Philosophy`s Purity cleanser. The Mia 2 comes programmed with two speeds. You begin by first charging it for a good 24 hours. When you are ready to use your Clarisonic you first start by wetting the head with lukewarm water and then squeezing your cleanser of choice onto it. Then after you turn it on you start at your chin area and run it all over your chin and nose area. There is a built in timer and the instructions tell you that to use it on your chin and nose area for 20 seconds, your forehead for 20 seconds and then each of your cheeks for 10 seconds. After the 20 seconds on the chin and nose area is up there is a light vibration that indicates you should move to your forehead.
Now, on to how I worked my Clarisonic into my skincare routine. In the morning I use my Clarisonic and follow it up with my Clinique toner and finish with Clinique Super Defense moisturizer. At night I start by removing my makeup with my Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, then I use my Clarisonic and finish with Tarte`s Maracuja Oil as my nighttime moisturizer. I tried the Philosophy Purity cleaner that came with it but don`t really like it. I like a foaming cleanser and this one just didn`t foam well. I have been using a sample size of the Olay Fresh Effects cleanser and really like it but think I am going to give the Aveeno Positively Radiant cleanser and moisturizer a try. I also picked up the Boots Refreshing Toner while I was at Target today.
Do you own a Clarisonic? Do you love it as much as I do?
