It's been almost 3 weeks since I started using the Clarisonic, and I have to say I'm impressed. I wish I would have bought one sooner. How's that for a review?
My skin is smooth. The amount of zits I've had to endure since I've starting using it have been very minimal. And if any do crop up, they're small and gone pretty quick. But the big thing, the super chin pimples that could not be destroyed by anything? They're on the retreat. They're waving the white surrender flag and I could not be happier about it!
The instructions for the Clarisonic say you only need to use it for a minute a day. In fact, it has a timer and turns itself off after a minute. Because I have problem areas (temples and chin), I end up using it for two minutes, but I think the extra time spent on the problem areas is probably what's helping clear them up.
The one thing I did notice is that the are around the edges of my nose started to get irritated. I had been running the Clarisonic over those areas because I get the occasional small pimple there, but I think it was overkill. I don't ignore those areas now, but I just swipe over them quickly and that seems to work. I'm wondering if the "delicate" brush head would make a difference in this instance, but I'll have to wait and see. I want to use up this brush before I try a new one and since the rest of my face seems to be okay with it, I think it'll be okay to wait.
And just so you know, nobody paid me to write this or offered me free product. I went out and bought this thing myself to try and finally get my skin in order and I think it was worth every penny. I don't know that everyone needs to run out a buy one right away, but if you have problem skin and nothing seems to work, it might be worth a shot. I know there's one reader who is trying out the Oil of Olay version, which might be easier on the pocketbook if you want to give this method a try. Or heck, if you found something that works without buying a big face toothbrush, leave a comment...
