Final thoughts: If you don't own a Clarisonic then you better hurry up & jump on the bandwagon. This was probably my favorite purchase of 2011. I don't think I could ever go a day without using it. It's that good! I've notice my skin is much more radiant with daily use of the Clarisonic. I also have acne prone skin & so far my breakouts have decreased drastically. I used to break out along my jawline & since using the Clarisonic my skin has been clear! I will get occasional breakouts but they're minor. One will pop up once in a great while but that's better than having constant breakouts. My skin is also not as oily as it used to be. I just feel like my skin is balanced & healthy.
I love how it's waterproof. I use mine in the shower all the time. I also love how you can use the Clarisonic with any cleanser you wish, preferably one that doesn't have beads. It's gentle enough for everyday use (I use mine in the morning & night), and the way it charges is cool LOL. It's magnetic!
I like to remove my makeup with makeup remover & makeup wipes. I usually wipe off all my makeup till the wipe is completely clean. Then I take my Fresh Soy Face Cleanser which is an all natural cleanser that's extra gentle for the eyes & face and removes all traces of makeup, I put some on my Clarisonic & watch that baby remove a bunch of makeup that my wipes couldn't remove. You'd be surprised to see what's on my brush after I'm done cleansing my face. It's a bit disgusting if you asked me. The Clarisonic definitely removes makeup, dirt & impurities more than your traditional methods.
So the next time you think your face is clean, think again. You'll know what clean is once you get your hands on a Clarisonic.
*You can find Fresh Soy Face Cleanser at any Sephora store. Retail price: 50ml $15 | 150ml $38
