Read on to learn the single most important device in your skin care regimen…
I have combination skin and I have always suffered from (sounds so dramatic!) dry areas around the creases and the side of my nose. My first inclination was to slough the dry skin off and for years I would use a Buf-Puf facial sponge whenever I washed my face.
I mean, I was severely addicted to these little pads and would break out in sweats if I forgot mine on an overnight trip or, god forbid, forgot to pick them up at the store. Then one day I got a facial at a day spa in La Jolla and discovered the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Device.
What is Clarisonic?
Oh my gosh what an amazing tool! It felt heavenly, like little feathers on my face, and when we were done my skin felt radiant so I did a little research on it. Here’s what I found:
- Cleanses 6x better than hands alone *
- Removes 30x more pollutants than manual cleansing *
- 61% greater absorption of skin products after use *
- 94% of consumers report softer skin *
- 90% of consumers report more radiant, glowing skin *
- Gentle enough to use 2 x a day *
Which Clarisonic to Buy
At the time of my discovery, there was only one type of unit available and it cost $265. A much greater expense than my buf-puf routine but I’m glad I took the leap! No more dry skin around the nose, my pores looked visibly smaller and I found that I was comfortable going out with just sunscreen on my face and nothing else.
Since then though, they have rolled out some more economical versions. I own the Clarisonic Mia and Clarisonic Mia 2 but my favorite is still the Clarisonic Plus because of the three speeds and the charging cradle. Here is a comparison of them all.
If your not 100% satisfied with your skin now then I suggest you ramp it up by adding the Clarisonic to your daily regimen both in the morning to remove accumulated oils from night creams, and at night to remove pollution and makeup accumulated during the day.
