I purchased a Clarisonic when it first came out 8 or 9 years ago and I felt like it was really gimmicky. When newer models came out I gave it a second chance and oddly enough ended up falling in love with it. I think around the time the Aria came out I was an active Clarisonic user. With time and new advancements in the technology the brush became my very best friend. They aren’t joking when they sale it cleans your face better than hands alone. You not only feel the difference but also see the visible results when you’re using it daily.
Like most skincare the Clarisonic is a tool you need to commit to. You have to be willing to put the work in to see the results. I had a fantastic honeymoon period with it that lasted years but for some reason I stopped using it. I think that’s because I always feel very pressed and stressed for time. I’ve said it millions of times before and I’ll say it millions of times after, I need more hours in the day to get everything done 🙂
At the moment there are a ridiculous amount of good sales on the Clarisonic Website and at Sephora on Clarisonic units and brushes etc…! Recently, I hauled some new brush heads at Sephora because they were on sale and I hauled out my Clarisonic Smart Profile (which isn’t even around anymore!?) and decided to start using it again. I gotta say I don’t know why I stopped! The results are amazing. My skin is so much more brighter and smoother since I started using it again! I could kick myself for stopping! I even started using it nightly (I typically used it everyday in the shower but not at night). My skin is going through a minor adjustment period as seems typical when I use the brush so I’m a bit more oily and I have a bit of a pimple breakout on my chin which is all very abnormal for me. This is pretty standard when I use the brush! For some reason my skin has this weird session where it seems to detox and goes back to normal within a few days. Anyway…! That being said my typically duller skin looks so much more brighter lately and less dull not to mention my moisturizer absorbs so easily. I’m glad I started using it again!
I sure am glad I started up again.
Have you every had a WTF skincare moment where you stop using something that your skin really liked and start using it again down the road only to ask yourself, “WTF did I stop using this? It’s great!”
