Hola Senoritas and Senors! 🙂 How have you been doing? Good summer so far? We’ve been having fun traveling this past summer but we’ll be more consistent with blog posts now! Who’s ready for a big review? We got the famous Clarisonic, coming your way!
This is a two-speed sonic cleansing facial tool that comes with a removable brush head. It delivers 300 micro-massage movements every second to remove dirt, oil and makeup up to six times better hand hands alone. It works to keep your skin’s natural elasticity while cleaning out your pores. After 60 seconds of use, your skin is fully prepped for treatment products, and ready for seamless makeup application.
It comes with one brush head, a clarisonic cleanser and a charger. This cleansing system costs $219 CAD, however clarisonic has many sets that are sometimes limited edition that incorporates cleansers cleansers from other brands.
We are going to divide this review into two parts since we both have different experiences with this cleansing tool.
I surprisingly enjoyed this skincare tool and have made it a part of my regular skincare routine, however I do not use it everyday (will go into more detail about this in a bit). The major draw for me was the results I experienced after my first few uses. There was immediate change in the condition of my skin. It felt much smoother and it definitely did a great job in cleansing my face. It removes all traces of makeup, dirt and any other gunk on my face. I was afraid of it causing irritation or being too abrasive but that wasn’t the case. Instead it provided a great deep cleanse especially after using heavier products like liquid foundation which can clog my pores.
However after using this product over an extended period of time I have found that I prefer using it 2-3 a week. I found using it everyday stripped my skin of its natural oils and got a tad dry. Overall, I think this is a great tool to up your skincare game and I’ll continue to use it. The main drawback is that you have to buy replacement heads every 3 months (I try to extend it’s life till around 5 months 😛 ) because bacteria can accumulate on the brush overtime, so it can definitely add up but I think it’s worth the money considering the results.
Unfortunately, I’ll start off by saying this just didn’t work for me. I have very sensitive combination skin and am acne prone. I was hoping this would work to give my skin a deep cleanse and purge out all the toxins and dead skin cells. I tried using the softest Clarisonic brush head intended for very sensitive skin, the Delicate brush head, and cleansed my face as I normally did, twice a day. Unfortunately, it seemed that even this brush head was too harsh for my sensitive skin. It seemed to irritate my skin and at first, I thought it might be the Clarisonic purging my skin, as I’ve heard some people have their skin get worse before it gets better. However my skin just seemed to get worse and worse after a few weeks… no sign of getting better. After a month of giving the Clarisonic a try and even try to only use it once a day or every few days, I gave up on the Clarisonic. It just seemed aggravate my skin and gave me more breakouts than I normally had. Once I stopped using the Clarisonic and went back to my usual routine of washing my face with my konjac sponge, my face went back to its normal happy self.
While it didn’t work out for me in the end, I don’t regret trying it. At the end of the day, I learned that it didn’t work for me. Try it out if you’re interested! I recommend purchasing from Sephora, because after a month of figuring out that I didn’t like the Clarisonic, I was able to return it and get a full refund.
What do you think? Did we persuade you? 😉 Let us know if you’re thinking about giving it a try or if you’ve already tried it! Come back next week, we may be reviewing some makeup products, you don’t want to miss it! Until then, have a fantastic week 🙂
