In spite of my constant ravings of the Clarasonic, a friend of mine recently pointed out that I hadn’t done a post on it… someones getting some major brownie points!! This is in fact true.. the reason being, that I wanted to make sure I gave this beauty gadget a serious run for it’s money, before I tell you guys about it. After all, anyone’s who’s pondered buying one of these gizmos will know they ain’t cheap.
Luckily mine was a birthday present, best one I’ve received in a long time, but even if it wasn’t, I would have bought it myself. The Clarasonic is an electric facial cleansing brush, that claims to clean your skin 6 times better than manual cleansing. The company itself says that manual cleansing actually leaves dirt, oil and make-up residue, thus creating dull and unhealthy skin.
The best way I can describe the first time using this, is like going for a really fast run on a cold day, when your skin feels invigorated and tingly. I am a bit of an exfoliating addict so for me, the speedy cleansing motion of the Clarasonic is ideal. I feel that it definitely does leave your skin feeling very smooth, soft, and radiant, and it’s absolutely helped to combat my dry patches and minimize my large pores. I would actually go as far as to say this has helped my face not look so puffy, even… dare I say…. helping to sculpt it a little more. I have huge squirrel esque cheeks, so for me anything that helps with de-puffing is a major bonus!
You can also buy different brush heads depending on your skin type. Sensitive, dry, and acne skin suffers rejoice as there’s a brush for you. I have the Clarasonic that has three speeds, and you can also attach a brush head to use for your body. Do you need the 3 speed spandangly most expensive one?! No. The original Mia would work just as well, and in all honesty I barely use this for my body. It’s not vigorous enough for me, but if you’re a body exfoliating newbie you may like the gentle, subtle body exfoliation.
So there you go, the Clarasonic has the Fluttering Lashes seal of approval, I can’t go a day without using this, but you don’t need the priciest to enjoy this beauty!
