clarisonic: skin cleansing system review & giveaway

Meet my new best friend, the Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System. We weren’t friends in the very beginning when she helped purge my skin of all the badness it’s harbored over the years, but now we’re likethis. The Clarisonic is unlike anything I have ever used before and will never turn back. I will be using this product for years and can’t wait to tell you about it!
Clarisonic is created by Pacific BioScience Laboratories – they’ve got the Sonic technology down. They were the first to create the sonic toothbrush that changed how millions of us care for our teeth and gums. They applied that same technology to facial care and revolutionized how we cleanse and care for our skin.

Luxury spas and dermatologists  recommend using the Clarisonic and for good reason. The sonic action of the brush head {I believe it spins and massages at the same time?} not only feels amazing but removes every last bit of makeup from my skin. I wear makeup almost everyday and I use a lot of products. First there’s moisturizer then primer, foundation, setting powder, blush, bronzer, touch up with pressed powder…a lot of product is going into my skin. At the end of the day when I washed with my facial cleanser alone, after I patted my face dry there would always be a tinge of makeup left on the towel. Reason? My skin cleanser alone just wasn’t getting deep into my pores and removing everything.

After using the Clarisonic for the first time, the results were immediate. Smooth, clean, fresh skin. No dryness from the exfoliation which was very surprising since I always have dryness after using an exfoliating facial scrub. I applied my moisturizer and noticed how slippery smooth my skin was and how well my moisturizer absorbed! Here is an image from the Clarisonic website to demonstrate other users results. Also check out videos on youtube for demonstrations and additional product reviews.

I can tell you with 100% confidence that my skin has improved dramatically! I have smaller pores, I have fewer breakouts {if any}, I don’t have dryness, my redness from rosacea has lessened, my skin texture has improved and is unbelievably smooth! My makeup glides on better, even when I use mineral makeup. Sometimes when I use mineral makeup, the kabuki brush brings up a bunch of dry skin and my makeup looks awful…not anymore.
Now when the package arrived, I won’t lie when I looked at my sleek, curvy Clarisonic and thought, “alright, here goes…in the name of product reviews, please let me have a face after I test this out”. My face felt fine during and afterwards but I did have to get through a week of breakouts. The reason we weren’t friends in the beginning was because during the first week of use, my skin was a mess. I did a little searching around and come to find out, others have gone through this as well and it’s known as the purging phase. Just like after a facial we sometimes notice a few breakouts over the next week or so and it’s ompletely normal. It’s just your skin purging the toxins, old makeup, moisturizer, dead skin cells, etc. I kept up with using it everyday and after the purging phase was over, I then understood why every dollar spent on this little machine would be worth it. That week of breakouts on my chin and forehead was manageable and so worth it to have the skin I have now! Did I mention the Clarisonic is also waterproof and all you need is 60 seconds to use it? It’s a busy mommie’s best friend.

I really like that you don’t have to use a specific cleanser for this tool. If you have a skin cleanser that is already working for you, that’s great – you can continue using it with your Clarisonic. You can use any cleanser in fact {just be sure that if it has exfoliating beads in it, that they are circular and not mis-shappen, like crushed shell or seeds for example}. The brush head only has to replaced every 3- 6 months and there are different textures and speeds for specific skin types: normal, sensitive, delicate and body. Replacement brush heads are $25 each or purchase a twin-pack for $40.
The Clarisonic is available here and prices start at $145 and go up from there. If you think your hubby might steal yours {mine tried it and really liked it too} then consider purchasing a duo set and save yourself $40+. Right now you’ll receive this free $55 gift with purchase, pictured on the right, free shipping AND free engraving to personalize your new Clarisonic!
