Beauty Essential: Clarisonic9:00 AM
I have never had great skin. I am always jealous of the girls that just have naturally beautiful skin and they don't do much more than wash and moisturize. I, however, have an army of skincare that I use to try and keep the zits away and the random bumps I get all over my face.
I've seen the Clarisonic for awhile now but the price tag has always kept me from trying it out. When I stumbled upon the Clarisonic His and Her gift set, it was such a good deal for two, that I decided I'd splurge for J and I. Plus the set came with a pink one and a grey one, how could I resist?
If you don't know what Clarisonic is, I'm sure you've heard of the Sonicare toothbrush right? J and I love our Sonicares, we've had them for a few years and my dentist even noticed how much cleaner my teeth are since using it. Well, Clarisonic is made by the people who created Sonicare and that's what basically sold me on it. If they can get my teeth extra clean, this has got to help my skin right? It's supposed to remove 6 times more makeup than manual washing which is something that I always worry about (makeup still on my face when I sleep).
It's been about 3 weeks since I started using it and I noticed a difference within the first week. It is awesome! My skin feels cleaner and smoother and I've gotten way less bumps on my face than usual. I have never been happier with my skin.
If you are in the same boat as I (you know approaching 30 and still have bad skin!) I totally recommend this. Mine came with a sensitive brush head which I think is the perfect amount of abrasiveness. It costs $195 for one and $350 for the his and her set but if you think about how much money I'm saving on not having to buy my pricey skincare and not going in for facials, it is actually a great deal.
I am just happy to be able to have good/okay skin for once. It is one of those things that can really get to you because it's always just been a continual battle of "should I buy this, will it work?" and having most products fail.
I bought my set at Nordstrom and from what I was told apparently got the last set as they sold out so quickly. You can however, still buy from the Clarisonic website or Sephora.
*Clarisonic did not pay me to write this, I just wanted to share my love for it. But hey if Clarisonic is reading this and you want to send stuff my way, feel free! ;)
